                                                             1 JANUARY 2023!


From the desk of one of His Apostle's as we embark upon the new year of 2023/5783 the Lord spoke to me that it will be a year of RETRIBUTION & RECOMPENSE according to:


ISAIAH 3:10-11 NKJV…10 “Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them,For they shall eat the fruit of their doings. 11 Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, For the reward of his hands shall be given him.


The Jewish Year 5783 began on Rosh Hashanah September 25th 2022 using the Hebrew Alphabet and Gematria system.


5 = Grace: (1000 years - Millennium)


7 = Completion, perfection: (100 years - Century)


8 = New beginnings: (10 years - Decade)


3 = Resurrection, seeds: (1 year - Year)


The word Retribution means "to recompense, or reward, the dispensing or receiving of a reward or punishment." 


Retribution literally means " to recompense, or reward, payback". It also means Punishment administered in return for a wrong committed.  


Recompense means to repay; reward; restore, a reward for services, To award compensation to.


2023/5783 is going to be a year concerning GOD’s complete justice, a judgement occurring as both blessings and cursing depending on which side of the retribution & recompense that you are on, we are also going to see a completion of a season from 2022 and a beginning of a brand-new season in 2023.


The Jewish Calendar is a lunar based calendar where the Jewish festivals and feast are determined by the moon's lunar cycles. The Jewish Calendar operates in periods of 7 year cycles. According to the Bible, Exodus 23:20-11, GOD commanded Israel to observe the 7th year as a Holy Year of rest, known as a Shmita Year. After 7 cycles, of 7 years, or 49 years were completed, there occurs a 50th year known as a Jubilee. According to the Bible in Leviticus 25:8-10, GOD commanded Israel to observed the Jubilee Year. The Jubilee year was a year of great liberation, freedom, debt forgiveness, and a year of retribution/repayment.


In 2023/5783 we end a 7 year cycle and Begin a new 7 year cycle (shmita) in addition we celebrate a Jubilee year.  This tells me that GOD is doing a new thing upon the earth after freeing us from debt and bondage through the Jubilee that will bring the righteous retribution and recompense in 2023..


Now the number 3 for 2023/5783 is the Hebrew letter Gimel (or Gimmel).  The letter Gimmel resembles both a foot and a person walking in the direction of the left. The word Gimel is derived from the root Hebrew word gemul, which means 'justified repayment', or the giving of reward and punishment. 


The Hebrew letter: Gimel 3 also…Is a alphabetical pictograph.  Camel, provisions, traveling by foot. This can represent a camel or a direction that a man is walking. Camels in scripture were a symbol of wealth and provision, also bearing loads of benefits. GOD blesses those whose feet that bring good news. Every place that you walk and share edifying good things, you shall be blessed in 2023.


Therefore, 2023/5783 will be a continuation and pinnacle point of the year 5782 (chaos) with (exposure) Because a marking always takes place before the act of judgement occurs, the year 5782 resembled the marking of truth, and 5783 will conclude with the act of judgement (exposure) occurring resulting in both blessings and cursing according to the deeds done by the recipients. 


Therefore we must be in tune with what GOD is saying to His Church, and we know that Faith comes by Hearing and Hearing by the Word of GOD through His Preachers. 


So Now Under the Anointing of the Holy Spirit I RELEASE TO YOU THE THEME AND SCRIPTURE FOR KBCMI FOR 2023:




ISAIAH 3:10-11 NKJV…10 “Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, For they shall eat the fruit of their doings. 11 Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, For the reward of his hands shall be given him.


It’s time for the Remnant of GOD to put their complete trust in the WORD of GOD and receive everything that GOD has in store for us in the year of 2023.


May the Lord continue to Bless you & keep you in Jesus Name.

Joshua 6:5 And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.
Hear: to hear to give heed, to be obedient. 
Sound: the voice.
Shout: to shout, raise a sound, cry out, give a blast, to shout a war cry or alarm of battle, to sound a signal for war or march, to shout in triumph (over enemies).
Great Shout: alarm, signal, sound of tempest, shout, shout or blast of war or alarm or joy; alarm of war, war-cry, battle-cry; blast (for march); shout of joy (with impulse); shout of joy (in general). 
Notice that a certain sound was released and an outcome happened because of it. 
This sound was a trumpet blast similar to other places in scriptures where revelatory truth was released. The Revelatory truth that was released here was that Israel would be victorious over what was holding them from the Promised Land. All the people were to shout with a great shout. There is a very big difference between these two shouts. One was a signal for war and the second was a war cry or battle cry. The first shout is a signal, the second shout is knowing there is victory. The first shout was in the earth realm and the second shout was in the second heaven or spirit realm. 
The first shout was from the people, the second shout was from their spirit, fully embracing they were in authority.
Joshua 6:20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
Exodus 19:16 -  A trumpet signal was the revelation that Moses got on the mount.
Leviticus 25 - Jubilee was declared with a trumpet and the revelatory sound of freedom was announced.
Gideon blew a trumpet and broke the pitchers.
John heard a trumpet talking with him in Revelation 1:10.

God has provided five special servant-gifts to ensure the structure of HIS CHURCH would be able to stand against the turbulent times that are ahead. 

These gifts were given by JESUS himself before he ascended unto Heaven in order that his BRIDE would not have a spot or wrinkle when he returns as the GROOM. 

May the LORD'S Church have the proper structure to pass the tests that will come over the next couple of years Amen.

The Bible refers to these gifts as apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, and teachers. Their are five different types of gifted people to mentor the Body. They are all servants. They each provide for God’s people, but each in a distinctly different way. Each must think differently than the others. Each must have different abilities and different revealed understandings of the Word. The shepherd will always understand the Word as it relates to his service. The evangelist and the shepherd may sit in the same gathering, hearing the same Word from the same apostle, yet each will receive the part that feeds his calling.  

Ephesians 4:11-13:   And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some shepherds, and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry for the edifying of the body of Christ.  

The apostle tends to see the overall larger picture. He sees it first in the spiritual and then seeks to bring it forth into the natural realm. He is like a pioneer. Apostles were a major part of the original formation of the church. In this day the apostles have been restored for the re - formation of the church to its original design and intent. In this re - formation major foundational and structural changes are required that call for the gifts and strengths of apostles.

The prophet is primarily an ear and a voice to people who are dull of hearing and do not hear the voice of God clearly. Prophets were very prevalent and most important in the old covenant when the Holy Spirit did not reside in God's people; therefore, they had no inner voice of God. In this day much of the church is yet dull of spiritual hearing and seeing. For many reasons they do not have intimacy with God through the indwelling Holy Spirit and need prophets to hear God for them and speak direction to them. 

The evangelist is a seed sower who loves to plant the word of Jesus in the heart soil of those who have never received it. In the recent past the evangelist has preached the portion of the gospel dealing with being "born again" or spiritual new birth. Evangelists are now beginning to, and will in the future even more, preach the fuller gospel of the kingdom that Jesus preached with the same powerful works that Jesus did. The gospel of the kingdom includes the gospel of being born spiritually that we have preached before but also includes the good news of growing up in Christ to rule and reign in this life with Him as kings and priests.

The shepherd is the mentor who sees to the growth and development of the immature as they grow into their gifts and places of service. In the religious church the shepherd was called “pastor” and served as a vicar of God. He was a person who vicariously represented Christ to the people all of their lives. This allowed little or no opportunity for the believers to mature into the priests and kings as God intended. In the relational church Christ and the mature people relate directly and not through a vicar. The sheep grow up to be shepherds or do other works as mature sons in the kingdom.

The teacher is the one who brings spiritually anointed definition to the fine points of spiritual reality. He/she is gifted to take natural illustrations and teach spiritual truths to the immature. In the religious church the teacher often brought dry "church doctrine" of many words and little real spiritual life. In the relational church the teacher is a light bearer bringing spiritual enlightenment in detailed pieces of real spiritual life.

These gifts function in the church, in business, and in all walks of life. The apostle in business may be thought of as one who starts businesses from nothing and serves as C.E.O. In business a prophet might be a troubleshooter. A pastor might be a personnel manager. An evangelist might be a traveling salesman. A teacher might be a technical instructor.  

There are many other gifts with each having its unique function in God’s overall scheme. All gifts and parts are needed. And they all need to be in their proper places doing their particular jobs. One of the greatest hindrances to each part doing its job is the lack of understanding and acceptance of the role God has given to each one of them. Often our temptation has been to try to mold everyone into whatever we are. We all need to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling Amen.
