Prophetic Word for 2017 by Barry Maracle

The Glory Years of The Kingdom

Word for 2017 & Beyond

All of creation has been waiting for this next season! The season where the Glory of God will cause the manifestation of who the church was pre-destined to be, not who it has been perceived to be.

The world is about to see that we are powerful and full of answers.  The people of this planet are about to have a paradigm shift about the church, as the veil of deception is displaced and they are able to see us serve unconditionally, love truly and operate in ultimate authority, being filled with His Spirit and carriers of His Glory.

Realized Authority   

    We have already entered into the year 5777 as of October 2nd, according to the Hebrew calendar. The year 5777 is known as the year Ayin Zayin. The letter Ayin has the numerical value of 70 and looks like an eye. Whereas Zayin has the numerical value of 7 and looks like a sword. I believe that we are now in revelatory years of seeing what the Spirit is saying.

    In this season we will see the authority of the Word of God (The Sword of The Lord) coming out of our lives, against the enemy, but for His people. Tremendous authority will be realized by the church worldwide.”

    It is our time to Arise and Shine! God’s Word is alive, active and sharper then any two-edged sword and will not return to Him void, but will accomplish what He desires and achieve the purpose for which He sent it. We will go out in joy and be led forth in Peace, the mountains and hills will burst out in song before us and the trees of the field will clap their hands, as the righteous ones of God go forth into their spheres of influence and into the divinely, designed prepared places. We are the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, making us the Principality and Power of Light within our Promised Lands! All of creation is about to rejoice as we begin to receive at a new level, the reality of Whose we are and within that, coming to the awesome revelation of Who we really have become!

Pressure within Preparation

    Before I go any further about the season we are entering, I want to first bring some clarity about what the church body has been going through.        

    We have been in a season of preparedness for years, but it has intensified over the last 3 months and will continue until about February 13th. It’s like the contractions are getting closer together and stronger as we are about birth something magnificent. This next statement may seem hyperbolic, but I have come to believe that the whole church has been recovering, restoring and preparing for these next years. Last year I felt the Lord showing me that we were in a season of Advancement. We were and we used our oppositions as opportunities for advancement. I also said we were about enter into 7 years of abundance and we were entering into the age of The Kingdom and here we are.

    I know many people are feeling the pressure within the preparation.

Anything that could be shaken was shaken. Not just shaken, but stirred to the surface. Things have been shaken loose and even things we had no idea of, even been hidden agendas of the enemy, have been being revealed so we could be healed and prepared.

    Mark 1:3 states, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of Lord; Make His paths straight.’”

    Many of the pressure’s people are sensing, are things out of the past. Some stronghold thoughts have been coming hard, fast and furious trying to overwhelm people to get them to agree with hereditary curses to keep them contained in the past and even satisfied with old manna. Also, familiar spirits have been hovering, looking to twist the purity process by trying to introduce old patterns.

    The fact is, the Lord has been bringing things to the surface in our lives so He/we can deal with them in preparation for His coming. He is coming!!! The King of Glory is coming!!! The King of Glory is coming in a new wave of His Glory! We’ve been going through this process of purity, getting prepared for the Greater Kingdom Glory. For we are coming into “The Glory Years of The Kingdom!” We are being prepared to shine as Gold refined by fire.

    What’s happening within this purification, preparation, refining process is… The Lord is convicting and purifying, while the enemy is accusing and bringing condemnation. What is meant to be a turning point. What is meant to be a moment of elevation to some becomes a time of assassination to others. Do NOT agree with your past deficits. Do NOT agree with the circumstantial evidence in your temporary situation. You can be refined by your past, but you do not have to be defined by your past. You are a new creation, you are brand new, all things are passed away and all things have become brand new. You are set free in every way from anyone’s control. Whom the Lord sets free is free indeed. You are set free for freedom sake and the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death.

    So submit and allow the Spirit to convict and heal, but like I said don’t receive the condemnation from the enemy.

    Don’t receive the condemnation from the enemy, but receive the greater Grace because of it.

    Pardon? Let me explain.

    Mark 1:6, says that while John the baptist was in the wilderness crying out for people to prepare a way for the Lord, through repentance, he was eating locusts and wild honey.

    John’s greater grace and the fuel that kept him going and the impetus to help other people get prepared, was locusts and wild honey. Prophetically, locusts represent the enemy and his plans and honey represents, revelation from the Father.

    So as prophetic people (the church is an Apostolic & Prophetic people) we have to strengthen ourselves to prepare the way for the next move of the Spirit, by feasting on the enemy and on what the Father is revealing.


    Psalms 23:5 says that the Lord provides for us a feast in the midst of our enemies. So Lord has provided a greater grace ahead of time knowing we would be in that valley. So we eat the feast in the presence of our enemies and they are the ones on the menu. This metaphorical statement of eating the locust or the enemy is likened to an army devouring their enemy. We are not talking flesh and blood and we don’t war against flesh and blood, we serve them, but we do devourer the spiritual wickedness and powers of darkness.

    Never fear the enemy or darkness. Knowing that they are nothing more than a backdrop for His brilliance and a platform for our advancement. As the enemy illegally comes in like a flood he is actually creating a legal portal for the Spirit of the Living God to come in and establish a greater standard. According to Isaiah 61:6 ampl., “… the Glory once that of your captors shall be yours. Romans 5:20, “But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.” And according to 2 Corinthians 9:8, God’s grace is His enabling, sustaining and fuelling Power!

Wild Honey

     Honey represents revelation, but here it speaks of wild honey. Wild is the greek word agrios from the root word agros meaning, from the land.

    As John got fuelled by the wild honey in the wilderness of Israel’s promised land, part of our fuel, our sustenance is to consume the revelations that can only be received within the promised land of our obedience.

    In Matthew 16:13-19, Jesus is revealing himself to His disciples as the Christ. It’s about a year and a half into His three and half year ministry. The interesting thing is that Jesus does not reveal this in the palaces of Jerusalem nor does He reveal the greatest of revelations around the sea of Galilee, where He did about 80% of His ministry. No, instead He decides to reveal this pinnacle of revelations in the darkest place on the planet, which happened to be within Israel’s promised land. It is also the darkest moment for humanity, historically speaking. Matthew 16:13 begins with Jesus reaching the region of Caesarea Philippi and saying to His disciples, “Who do men say that I the son of man Am…” In verse 16, Peter says, “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” Then Jesus says, “Blessed are you Simon son of Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. Verse 18 goes on to say, And I also say to you that you are Peter and on this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” So Jesus is building the church on Progressive Revelation and the foundational rock of revelation is that Jesus is the Christ.

    So why is this relevant? For several reasons. One being that you can receive a word from the Lord and a revelation from the Father anywhere at anytime and when you do receive a Word and a Revelation, It will sustain you! Your tanks will be fuelled up and you will be prepared for the next part of your journey.

    So in this season of preparedness don’t give up, sit down or shut up, but keep standing, keep declaring His Word and use this season to propel you into moments of greater victory, never seen before. It’s a great day.

The Glory Years of The Kingdom

    Habakkuk 2:14, “For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, As the waters cover the sea.” This scripture is being declared in the wake of the overwhelming destruction of the virtually indestructible Chaldean army. This scripture is a judgement of God against the enemy.

    There is only one way that the world will have the knowledge of the Glory and supremacy of our God and that is through the working out of the Great Commission. As we go into all the world and heal the sick, cast out devils, deliver the diseased and raise the dead. We will begin to bring judgement against the enemy. Jesus was manifested to destroy the works of the evil one and this is your time to do exactly that. This is a season of illuminating the authority of the believer and it is time to declare the Word of the Lord and let God strike vengeance upon the enemy. Once again we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but principalities and powers of darkness. We use the Sword of Lord against the enemy and for His people. Our job is to release the Kingdom through declaring and praising. God will ride on the coattails of our declarations and praises and build His throne and build His church. We let God arise and our enemies, which are His enemies, will be scattered.

    Be silent no longer, declare the Word of the Lord and see the power of His authority manifest, which the Lord has given us.

Gold Revealed

    When silver shows up it means one thing, the Gold is about to be revealed. Silver represents purity, whereas Gold represents the Glory. As I mentioned earlier about the season of preparation and the purification process that the church body has been going through, this is what silver represents.

    I have seen a tremendous amount of silver showing up in our lives and I’m like OK God I’m getting the hint. So we’ve been intentional about crossing some t’s and dotting some i’s and asking God to give us a Grace to repent.

    In one offering someone gave me 8 silver coins. Each coin was 1 troy ounce of pure silver 999.9. Another time a lady shows up in a meeting and gives me a brick of 100 troy ounces of pure silver, 999.9. Incidentally 9 is the number of the Holy Spirit. This lady said the Lord told her to come to a meeting that I would be at in October and she was to give me the brick there. The interesting thing is, that the Lord told her earlier this past summer and I was not even scheduled to preach until the week before I ministered. Lion head coins and other silver pieces mostly all showing up around the same time. Then my sharp, keen mind kicks in, my prophetic senses begin tingling and I finally get it! I think the Lord is wanting to reveal His Glory to the world through a purified church.

    Silver is the last metal before the Gold is revealed. For example companies are putting silver in cleaning cloths to help keep bacteria out and they are developing self-cleaning apparel using silver as the cleaning agent. Water companies are putting silver into filters that purify the water. Purity is the last thing needed before the Glory of the Lord can be revealed and sustained.

    So let’s get ready for the Golden Glory Days of Kingdom, for the King of Glory is coming and wants to release end time mysteries. This weighty Glory will produce super-abundance and we must be prepared for the gravity of that responsibility. We must deal ahead of time with the spirit of mammon that can destroy through avarice or greed. There will be many advancements made in all fields and mountains. As knowledge increases, we as the church need to be at the forefront and be scaling every mountain in the cultures of our promised lands. We must be on the top of our game and on the top of these mountains, because the Glory flows from top down.


Shining Bright As Answers

    As I said at the beginning, the whole world is waiting for you. Yes, I said the church earlier, but that’s who the church is. We are a corporate body made up out of individuals who are fearfully and wonderfully made. We are coming into unity by His Glory. John 17:22 Jesus says, “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:. In verse 23 Jesus goes on to say, “I in them and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You loved Me.”

    Isaiah 60 has been illuminated over the past few years, because it is time for the church to arise, shine and take our place on the world stage. As the world is being swirled with darkness and there has been deep darkness upon the people, His Glory is rising upon us and will be seen on us. The gentiles, the people of the world are coming and according to the increasing levels that we allow the King of Glory to be manifested in our lives, so are the Kings of cultures coming! People are about to see their answers upon us.

    So Arise, come out of your caves and graves, shake off the grave clothes, unsheathe the Sword of the Lord, declare the Word and create the atmosphere for the Glory of the Lord to be sustained. Visitation privileges are great, but that was always a temporary thing. He has always longed for habitation.

    We are entering into the Glory Days of The Kingdom, get ready and enjoy this next season. There is much work to do, but a greater Grace to do it… His Glory.
