Prophetic Declaration for 2023

For 2023 ❤️

Beloved, I am declaring to you, and over your heart, that you are now in a season in which WE, My Word, My Spirit, and your surrendered heart, are building again. Yes, you are coming into a restored state!! A restored state of strength. You will no longer be in disarray. In ruin. I will not leave you undone.

You will no longer be in a state of confusion. Darkness will no longer be your covering. Bondage will no longer be home for you. You will be rebuilt and restored to your previous state. Your previous state of New Life in Me! Back into the fiery passion of first love!

It is My desire to bring you out of the darkness and the bondages in which you have become accustomed to. My Light was created to bring you out of chaos and darkness. My Light will reveal areas in which you thought promises and dreams were lost, but they are not, I have preserved them in My very hands. Hope will be renewed again as you see the preservation of My promises for you. I am always sure to watch over My Word. I have promised that I will perform it. As the dust is shaken it will unfold all that I have protected. It was out of your sight, but not Mine. You will return to that child-like state you once had where dreams did not torture you but thrilled you. Yes! I am rebuilding Faith! Rebuilding Hope! Joy!

My Light will also reveal areas, plans, and thoughts, you have considered fruitful, even necessary, but you will see are not. In My Light and revelation, you will rejoice at the removal of these. I only dispose of that which is not beneficial. Trust Me as I carry away what I know is rubble. The rubble of all thoughts and desires that are not in agreement with what I am building and restoring within you. Will you trust Me and allow Me to be the Architect of your life? If you choose to trust Me, then you will be made new in lasting freedom from fears, addictions, lies, torment, and sorrow. Stones of disappointment will not be within your walls.

I have set My eyes upon you for good; and I will build you up and not pull you down. I will give you a heart to know Me, to understand Me, to recognize Me when you set your whole heart before Me. (Jeremiah 24:6) I will build you up, and you will be rebuilt.

I promised in these last days to raise up and rebuild the tabernacle of David, the tabernacle of impassioned love, to close up the gaps between us; to raise up its ruins, to repair all the areas destroyed from war; to reinforce the pieces that are falling apart because they have been neglected and uncared for. I promised to rebuild it as it was in the days of old, in its previous state. As I promised to rebuild that very tabernacle, I have promised to rebuild you. (Amos 9)

My prophetic promise was that with the rebuilding of that tabernacle of Love, everything that was barren and unfruitful would overflow with spiritual blessings and My Spirit Wine. Do you now see what I am declaring to you today? You will overflow with My very Presence! You will be intoxicated with My Holy Spirit as we rebuild, repair, and make NEW! My blessings will continually flow from within your restored heart of love for Me. In the season of rebuilding also comes the recovery of all that was lost and stolen. Yes, you will recover the spiritual blessings prepared and promised to you and to the generations. My store house is overflowing with all that I have recovered for you.

And then, you will go forth in My Name and Spirit to bring restoration to others who are broken and shattered. As you are rebuilt and adorned with My heavenly fruit and gifts you will lead the brokenhearted and captive in sin into the reality of My Light and Life and Love.

Isaiah 61:1-4 TPT
The mighty Spirit of the Lord Yahweh is wrapped around me because Yahweh has anointed me, as a messenger to preach good news to the poor. He sent me to heal the wounds of the brokenhearted, to tell captives, “You are free!” and to tell prisoners, “Be free from your darkness.”
I am sent to announce a new season of Yahweh’s grace and a time of God’s recompense on his enemies, to comfort all who are in sorrow, to strengthen those crushed by despair who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful bouquet in the place of ashes, the oil of bliss instead of tears, and the mantle of joyous praise instead of the spirit of heaviness. Because of this, they will be known as Might Oaks of Righteousness, planted by Yahweh as a living display of his glory. They will restore ruins from long ago and rebuild what was long devastated. They will renew ruined cities and desolations of past generations.

Light Changes Everything

Light. Light changes everything.

Yesterday, my granddaughter was in the garage playing with her uncle’s dog. Next thing I know she is standing in front of me shaking from head to toe crying profusely. Apparently, a breaker had blown, and the lights went out. She was in the pitch-black darkness, terrified. She then could make out a sliver of light around the laundry room door and found her way out. That tiny speck of light made all the difference. It led her out of the darkness.

Likewise, in our lives we find ourselves in periods of unexpected darkness. Depression from an impending divorce. A diagnosis that took us by surprise. The death of a loved one or layoffs at work. These are times of sudden, unexpected darkness.

There are also those times when we are just living in “adjusted darkness.” You know, like when you walk into a darkened room and your eyes slowly adjust so that you can see? Many, many, are living here. Adjusted to the darkness. Living life with no true joy. Going in and out of each day with maddening mundane monotony.

I know for myself this was true. I had lived a life of addiction, depression, pain, fear, and all the rest. Daily in the dark. Until one glorious day…LIGHT appeared!! And when you see it, right where you are living, hurting, working, it changes everything. And that point is where I want to stay for a moment -
The Light that comes right where you are.

In the account of Jesus’ birth, we read in Luke chapter 2 that there were shepherds out in the field tending to their flocks. These were ordinary men who were working, living, doing life like you and me. They had probably walked far that day and then, as always, the sun had finally set. The sky grew dark, and night had come. They had settled into the surrounding, expected, darkness. Then suddenly, everything changed. Light appeared. An angel stood right in the middle of their camp. With the sudden, unexpected Light came the reality of a spiritual realm. This Light piercing the darkness of their earth, and their hearts, gave way to a Truth, THE Truth. That truth is that a realm in heaven must exist and that at any given moment, it can become very apparent. And if there was any shadow of a doubt within their hearts with the appearance and message of one angel, a host, an army, of angels are then made known, and heaven and earth had become one.

The Light appearing to the shepherds did more than change their evening, it changed their lives. It dispelled the darkness, changed their plans, redirected their path, put praise upon their lips, and forever altered their hearts. The Light in the darkness of that field, led them directly to Jesus. The Light led them to Life. And today, it is the same.

Whether you are you experiencing an unexpected darkness, or living in the adjusted darkness of your life, Jesus wants you to know that He is with you. There is a realm that is greater than just what you are experiencing, and it can shine bright in your darkness. It can lead you out.

There are times when Light comes bursting through our darkness when we don’t expect it, like with the shepherds, and then there are times when we have to cry out to see it. Whether or not you are aware of it, He is already there with you. That realm you can’t see exists right where you are. Personally, for me, I couldn’t see it. At the end of June 1994 while I was consumed in the darkest dark I had ever known, I cried out. “God, if you are real, please show me.” That was it. Days later I was arrested with the same amazement as those in Luke 2, I was captured by that Light. And like them, my plans changed, my direction was altered, and my heart was reborn.

Christmas is when we celebrate the coming of Jesus, the Light and Life. If you have come into the reality of His Light and Love, stop and take some time to thank Him and worship and adore Him. Perhaps there is some darkness that has invaded your life and heart. It is time to stop adjusting to it, and with His Light, cause it to flee.

But if instead you are still searching for Him this Christmas, searching for a way out of your darkness and pain, I pray that the reality of His Light and Love will fill your heart and forever alter your course.

With humbled amazement, Merry Christmas.
Pastor Annette

Luke 2:8-14 AMP
And in that vicinity there were shepherds living [out under the open sky] in the field, watching [in shifts] over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the glory of the Lord flashed and shone all about them, and they were terribly frightened. 10 But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people. 11 For to you is born this day in the town of David a Savior, Who is Christ (the Messiah) the Lord! 12 And this will be a sign for you [by which you will recognize Him]: you will find [after searching] a Baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. 13 Then suddenly there appeared with the angel an army of the troops of heaven (a heavenly knighthood), praising God and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest [heaven], and on earth peace among men with whom He is well pleased [men of goodwill, of His favor].
