The Way Maker – Prophetic Word for 2018

This Year 2018 has many tale telling signs even within its own numbers.

To start off, here are interesting definitions and insights into the number 18.

In the Hebrew system of the numerical value of words, the Hebrew word for life (chai) has the value of 18. This makes 18 (In Hebrew, chet/yod) a favourable number as it indicates hopes of a long life.
Shemonah Esrei is the main prayer in Judaism and means 18, with 18 different original blessings that deal with every area of Life (Chai, Hebrew for Life). Many people wear the Chai symbol around their necks to attract great favour.

After 18 years the Israelites were set free from captivity from the Moabites and Ammonites.
Jesus healed a woman on the Sabbath who had had a spirit of infirmity for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten herself. Jesus laid his hands on her and she was made straight. When he was criticized for healing on the Sabbath Jesus answered: “And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?”  Luke 13:16

There seems to be much Life and deliverance around the number 18. Even the Chinese believe that 18 is auspicious number, because when spelled out it looks like their word for prosperity.

Chet is the 8th letter of the Hebrew alephbet and looks like a gate or even a doorway. Not like the fourth letter, Dalet, that looks like a door.

Chet looks more like a doorway, similar to the doorway pillars of the houses of the children of Israel that put the blood of the lamb on, so the angel of death would passover. An abundant doorway is about to be opened up unto us into the Kingdom of God!

We are the Son’s and Daughters of New Beginnings!

It was on the 6th day, but the 8th declaration that God made man in His Image and according to His Likeness.

David was the 8th son of Jesse. The Thrown will never leave the lineage of The 8th son.

Everyday is a New Day, a New Beginning and His Mercies are brand New every morning.

We are coming into a season of deliverance and the restoration of all things. 

I sense this year will be without the trappings of earn/deserve and many Holy Spirit outpourings will seem, without a rhyme or reason, just simply His Mercy and His Grace. The supernatural suddenlies will be just that… beautiful exciting surprises and at many moments, there will be, unsolicited relief.

So 2018 has this feeling of Redemption and deliverance
“2018, The year that we will see the Lord make a way, where was no way!”

He’s about make away out of your problems, but also into your PROMISES!

John 20:19 & 20
On the evening of that first day of the week [Sunday], when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!
20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.

John 20:26
And after eight days [{Say, On The 8th Day!} The following Monday.]
His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” 27 Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.

We’re Believers NOT doubters!

28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”
29 Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

Jesus shows up and makes a way where there is no way.
If you’ve felt like you’ve missed it or missed Him in someway, understand that your someday Sunday is here, but your Miracle Monday is on it’s way!

Every locked door in the past season and every blocked entrance will NOT stop the Way Maker in this one!
Jesus is about to show up even in the midst of the frailty of your flesh.
Jesus the WayMaker is about to show up regardless of the failure of your past.
The WayMaker is going to show up even though He knows both the frailty of your flesh and the failures of your past, just as He did for Thomas.
He wasn’t angry with Thomas. He actually came back specifically for Thomas!
… And He’s not angry with you and He coming specifically for you!

The Good Shepherd is about to leave the 99 and go get the one… you!
He is about to come past the walls of doubt and the containments of fear and stand right in the midst of it all and say, Peace Be Still!, to every one of your circumstances.
He’s about to show up with peace for all those who have given up!
He’s about to show up with joy for all those that have been overwhelmed with depression.
He’s about to show up with the gift of His righteousness and say, I have paid the price for your righteousness, I forgive you and I accept you for who you are and I am loving you with an everlasting love. My loving Kindness that I release to you in this season will sustain and Make a Way for your greatness!

A demand has been made on heaven.

The abundance of opposition the saints have endured, the tears of repentance and prayers for deliverance, have caused the greater Grace to be manifested and in this hour the Son of Righteousness is arising with healing, deliverance and salvation in His wings and not only to create ways but actually be The Way Maker!

The Good Shepherd is leaving the 99 and He is about to invade the mountains of culture for the ONE.
Jesus is not just coming for the ones that feel downtrodden and defeated, He’s coming for the ONES in the Mountain.
Get ready for revivals in unexpected places, like the market place, Like the movie industry, like the Arts and Entertainment Mountain. Like the Financial Institutions. Some say there are 7 major mountains of culture other say there 10 or more. All I know is He is not leaving the ones that are being healed in the church but He/Jesus is going specifically after the ONES that feel they are lost in the Mountains.
Guess what? They’re not lost, even though they may feel that way, they have been strategically placed in the midst of the mountains of culture on purpose with a PURPOSE! Jesus is coming for them, to sanctify them, to justify them, to save them, to heal them, to deliver them, to establish them. There will be full on revivals leading to total restoration in the most peculiar places. A manifestation of Isaiah 61:1-7 …a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendour…

Matthew 18:10-14 says, 10 “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven. 11 For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.
12 “What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying? 13 And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray. 14 Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.

Native Territories across this nation and into the United States will also see Great Restoration. The First Peoples of North America are very much upon His radar. Knowledge will come to many leaders within the Native communities of the Original intent of God for their people. Purpose will be restored and so much more as Holy Spirit sweeps in with returned inheritances and overwhelming blessings. Resources and financial breakthroughs will come to even the most impoverished Reservations. He has RESERVED them for such a time as this!

The enemy that has been dogging you and chasing you, you will see know longer!

Exodus 14:13, Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.
The Children of Isreal had nowhere to turn.
They were trapped between an ensuing enemy and a sea of problems.
The clock was ticking and SUDDENLY, GOD Makes a Way in a place nobody thought of and creates a path that would lead them out of harms way and a path to lead the enemy into his own destruction.
The enemy that has put your back up against the wall and even cornered you.
The very enslaving enemy that has continually put you between a rock and a hard place is about to be destroyed by the very thing that was containing you!
The enemy that you have seen, you shall see NO Longer!!!

You may feel like your in this dry, wilderness place with really no way out of these circumstances. I want to encourage you this day, It’s not time to give up, shut up or sit down! Get your expectations on, because this measurement is going to be a season of suddenlies!

Where the enemy has said death, The WayMaker will show up and create pathways to healing and health.

When the banks are about to foreclose, is the time that Jesus, The WayMaker, shows up and creates a financial way. All those pains and problems, well they’re about to have a Supernatural PAYDAY!

The greater Grace is about eclipse the evil of the day.

God is about to supernaturally create avenues of rescue out the valleys of the shadow of death.
Where you could only see defeat and impossibilities like the children of Israel did at the Red Sea, you are about to see a way out and a way up and into much better day. The enemy that has been dogging you and chasing you, you will see no longer!

They WayMaker is about to also create Ways not just out of your vanquished valleys of problems and pain, but into your Victorious Promised Lands.

Your Dreams are about to be resurrected.
Your Vision is about to come alive.
That prophesy that seemed impossible, is about come to pass.
The WayMaker is about to make a way into the Promised Land that seems too good to be true!

A fresh Spirit of Hope is on the horizon! Romans 5:5 says, Hope no longer disappoints us because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit He has given to us. Hope will no longer be deterred from us. Hope is a foundation force and will not be taken from us in this season… Hope remains!

God is not just taking us out of our problems, but He is about take us into our Promises!

Joshua 3:7-17
7 And the Lord said to Joshua, “This day I will begin to exalt
you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was
with Moses, so I will be with you. 8 You shall command the
priests who bear the ark of the covenant, saying, ‘When you
have come to the edge of the water of the Jordan, you shall
stand in the Jordan.’”
9 So Joshua said to the children of Israel, “Come here, and
hear the words of the Lord your God.” 10 And Joshua said, “By
this you shall know that the living God is among you, and that
He will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites
and the Hittites and the Hivites and the Perizzites and the
Girgashites and the Amorites and the Jebusites: 11 Behold, the
ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is crossing over
before you into the Jordan. 12 Now therefore, take for
yourselves twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one man from
every tribe. 13 And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles
of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the Lord, the Lord
of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the
waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come
down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap.”
14 So it was, when the people set out from their camp to cross
over the Jordan, with the priests bearing the ark of the
covenant before the people, 15 and as those who bore the ark
came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the
ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows
all its banks during the whole time of harvest), 16 that the
waters which came down from upstream stood still, and rose
in a heap very far away at Adam, the city that is beside
Zaretan. So the waters that went down into the Sea of the
Arabah, the Salt Sea, failed, and were cut off; and the people
crossed over opposite Jericho. 17 Then the priests who bore
the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firm on dry ground in
the midst of the Jordan; and all Israel crossed over on dry
ground, until all the people had crossed completely over the

Not just out of your problems and pains, but He is about to make a way into your Promised land that is full of His promises that are yeah and amen to those that believe.

God is about to Make A Way where there is no way!
Those impossible obstacles are about to be overcome, by supernatural suddenlies!

John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

My prayer and hope for you in this season, is that you see the Father’s heart through His Amazing Son Jesus. That you will begin like no other time in your life, receive the Goodness of the Lord in the land of the living and get a glimpse of the unconditional, non-negotiable love that He longs to lavish upon you all.

Get ready for your someday is about to be today and that, without delay!

Much love and all the best,
Barry Maracle
