THE YEAR OF 20/20 PROPHETIC 

                             VISION AND PROVISION!

 

 

RELEASED ON 31 DECEMBER 2019.

 

From the desk of the Apostle:

 

Joel 2:24-26 (KJV)... 24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

 

We see in our text that God promises the impossible with man: “I will restore the years that the locust (nations) has eaten” (Joel 2:25). The immediate meaning of this promise is clear. God’s people had suffered the complete destruction of their entire harvest through swarms of locusts (nations) that marched like an insect army through the fields, destroying the crops, and multiplying their number as they went.

 

For four (4) consecutive years, the harvest was completely wiped out. God’s people were brought to their knees in more ways than one. But “the Lord became jealous for his land and had pity on his people (Joel 2:18-19).” God said, “Behold I am sending to you grain, wine and oil, and you will be satisfied (5th Yr.)  In the coming years, God said, their fields would yield an abundance that would make up for what had been lost....GOD said I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations....(Hold on He’s not done He said “The threshing floor shall be full of grain; the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. . . . You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied”...talking about 2020 PROVISION.  (Joel 2:24, 26).

 

Numbers are very significant in Hebrew because each Hebrew letter has a numerical value connected to it. The number 80 in the year 2020 is the numerical value for the Hebrew letter “Pey” which means “mouth”. It is the 18th letter that follows the letter “Ayin” which means “to see” and carries a value of 70. The significance of the Pey (mouth) following the letter Ayin, (to see) which has the numerical value of 80, is the same numerical value for the word “foundation and strength”.

 

What I’am saying is that God desires to restore 20/20 prophetic vision back to His church to prepare us for what is to come. The Hebrew year 5780, which will also fall on the Gregorian calendar 2020, will be a RESTORING year. 

 

As our eyes are being healed and our prophetic vision is being restored, we will begin to see and declare new visions with new wine skins. Glory to God,

 

 I HEAR THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD SAYING...........I am going to bring you to a place of manifestation and demonstration of me opening doors that only I could open and no man could shut (Is. 22:22). These doors will be miraculous. How things will come together will not be by your might, or by power, but by My Spirit (Zech. 4:6). All you need to do is stay aligned, stay close to Me and step out of limiting beliefs through repentance. Your tent pegs are being extended further. Don't let fear and the familiar contain you. I will sustain you. All of heaven's resources are placed before you in Me. Access these resources with your faith, make a withdrawal in faith from these heavenly resources in the vision I have given you."

 

Only what you can see, can you enter into and possess.  When you see prophetic, you will receive supernatural wings to ascend into higher realms and veils that have previously not been accessible.  With prophetic (vision) sight spiritual restrictions that have previously kept you grounded will be pulled up in order to release you into your spiritual destiny.

 

2020 is the year that the mysteries of God will begin to be experienced in a new way as the sword is being pulled out of the sheath. (logos word=sheath) (rhema word=sword of the spirit).  With His sword, God is going to judge every system that have kept Him out and He will deal with all idols and systems that has attempted to separate us from His Love.

 

In 2020 Spiritual Elijah’s are coming on the scene to expose and open the eyes of the church to her wickedness and call her back to accountability.  Also spiritual Jehu’s are chasing down the spirit of Jezebel and striping it of its influence and power.

 

2020 is the Year to See the Zayin which is the Sword.   Zayin is the 7th letter of the alphabet that means a sword.  2020 will be a year of the release of greater Dunamis power and Exousia authority for a kingly anointing to rule and reign upon the earth.  I DECLARE TO YOU THE YEAR OF 20/20 PROPHETIC VISION AND PROVISION!

 

Blessings,

 

God’s servant Apostle L.R. Gooden Jr.

LEVIATHAN THE SPIRIT OF PRIDE!

In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea. Isaiah 27:1

In the book of Job, the whole context is an ongoing debate between Job and his friends. Finally, God announces that He has had enough and demands an answer.

Where was thou when I laid the foundations of this earth?  Declare if thou hast understanding. Job 38:4 

God goes on to give Job an entire discourse about leviathan. "And now, Job, who are you, who dares not arouse the unmastered leviathan, yet who dare resist Me, the beast's Creator; to My face?  Everything under the heavens is Mine; therefore who can have a claim against Me?";  Leviathan is the climatic revelation of the book of Job.   The fact that the Bible denotes an entire chapter, Job 41, describing leviathan to him indicates his importance.

God uses the sea-monster, Leviathan, to reveal to Job that Job's problem is pride.   There is a strong evil spirit named Leviathan.   Leviathan is an evil demonic spirit of pride.

God reveals the monster.   Some call him a crocodile or something else, but the Word calls him a dragon, sea-monster, or sea-serpent.

In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.  Isaiah 27:1

Strong's Concordance gives this definition:

Leviathan- livyathan, (3882), a wreathed animal or serpent, a large sea-monster.   The constellation of the dragon, Draco; also as a symbol of Babylon: mourning.

Dragon / Dragons- tanniyn (8577), a marine or land monster, sea-serpent or jackel; sea-monster, serpent, whale.

The context suggest some form of aquatic monster which dwells in the sea.   In the scripture, the sea represents nations of people.   There is a dragon in the sea (people or nations), and God is going to slay that dragon.

The nations of this world are consumed by this dragon or sea-monster.   This sea-monster is pride. This evil, demonic spirit of pride manipulates and controls the masses of this world.

He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride. (Of all the beasts, he is the proudest, he reigns supreme over all the pride of the earth.)  Job 41:34

Another way of stating this is, 'he looks down on all who are haughty; he is a king or ruler over all those who are proud'.   Pride and leviathan are practically synonymous. It is hard to separate them. 

The spirit of Leviathan's most crucial work is in the area of keeping people from receiving the things of God and of the Holy Spirit and from moving into the very presence of Almighty God.   Leviathan's primary purpose and goal is to stop all true moves of the Holy Spirit, and all spiritual growth in the lives of the Believers.   He wants to stop the flow of the Anointing.

The modern church today is largely asleep because of the spirit Leviathan's work.   He loves to eclipse things.   Mythology associates him with the eclipse of the sun.   He wants to eclipse the S-O-N, Christ Jesus, in your life.   Leviathan wants to eclipse the True and Holy things of Almighty God in your life.

 Leviathan resides in the Holy Place, and is a counterfeiter.

We are three part beings; we are a spirit, we have a soul, and we live in a body.   Our soul is a type of the Holy Place where Leviathan works. He is at work in our soul; in our mind, emotions, and will. 

The spirit of Leviathan attempts to keep us from entering the Holy of Holies, into the very presence of God.   No man could go there except Moses and the High Priest; and then only once a year.   This is the third veil, and Leviathan does not want us there.   This third veil was rent when Jesus died on the cross.   This was the veil between the Spirit-filled realm and the very presence of God.   Here Leviathan stands to block entrance. 

The spirit of Leviathan attempts to snuff out the lamps (knowledge and understanding); cut off the bread (the manna); and he tries to keep us from offering up daily incense (prayer in the Spirit).   He does not want us to move in the Holy Spirit; to have words of knowledge, speak in tongues, or any other spiritual gift.   He will choke us off with spiritual deafness and blindness, causing us to be tongue-tied.   Leviathan will imitate the Holy Spirit and cause false gifts, healings, and even miracles to manifest in the believers. 

Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron (His nostrils belch forth smoke, thick as the fumes of a seething pot.).     Job 41:20 

The smoke from Leviathan nostrils is false prayer and false worship at the altar of incense, and he is commissioned to counterfeit the genuine pentecostal experience.   Because the person is so bound up with pride, he cannot really praise God.   He is too important, too bound up in himself, to give any real praise and worship to God. 

His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal (His arrogance and haughtiness stems from the tight sealed scales covering his body.).   Job 42:15

Leviathan's scales are so close one to another that no air can come between them.   The scales are joined one to another and cannot be pulled apart.   In scripture; air, breath, and wind are synonymous with the Holy Spirit. 

The reason many people get so shut in is because of the effects of Leviathan's tight coils around them, inhibiting the moving of the Holy Spirit.   They cannot hear or discern the Holy Spirit, and they say they never get a word from the Lord or move in the gifts.   The reason is that no air of the Holy Spirit is able to get in because this demon has such a strangle hold.

The spirit Leviathan wants us to have the counterfeit; and if we get that and are satisfied with it, he has us.   Leviathan in the pastor, teacher, evangelist, etc. charms or hypnotizes the people, and they are deceived and seduced into believing they are operating through the Holy Spirit.   Today, many are experiencing counterfeit gifts.   Many are requiring deliverance from false, error filled ministries.   Increasingly, deliverance ministries are having to cast out spirits of false tongues.

One of Leviathan's chief jobs is to mock, come against, and block deliverance and/or deliverance ministries.   Most people who fight the deliverance ministry have powerful leviathan demons; and are, therefore, raely delivered.   Many of the ministers who refuse to open up to the ministry of deliverance are being controlled by a leviathan spirit.

The reason pastors, teachers, evangelist, etc. accept leviathan's lies is because they refuse to believe that they may have demons and are in need of deliverance.  It's not a 'shame' to have demons, the shame is not acknowledging, repenting, and getting rid of it through deliverance.   Instead, they teach the people 'Christians cannot have demons'. 

The 'true' deliverance of God is casting out demons according to Mark 16:17- 18: And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils;  .  .  .  they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.    Mark 16:17-18

The Bible says that if we do not love the truth, God will cause us to believe a lie.   The only way to get rid of the demonic influence of Leviathan is to 'cast him out in the Name of Jesus'. 

I pray that this teaching will enlighten us to not be ignorant of satans devices but to grasp the truth and function in the truth. Amen.

IT'S ALL ABOUT OUR HEART!

Just like the root determines the fruit, your heart determines your spiritual advancement, and your blessings in life. That is the root of all spiritual encounters because God sees our heart before He hears our voice. He responds to the state of our heart much more than He responds to our utterances and our acts. 

In Acts 8:21, the apostles encountered a man who offered them money to buy the power of the Holy Ghost and Peter said to him, “Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.  ” Which means, if your heart is right your part is guaranteed! The state of your heart determines the measure of your part. It is not the volume of your prayer that determines the volume of your blessing but the state of your heart. Men may commend your utterances but God answers your heart. 

Nothing happens on this earth without a root in our heart. Every happening around us is a function of what is happening within us. We can never encounter a change on this earth until there is a move from our heart. It is the move of our heart that determines the changes on our earth. There is nothing a man cannot accomplish when his heart is in the right place with GOD. 

In Jeremiah 29:11 God said, “…I know the thoughts that I think toward you…thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” But in verse 13 He said, “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart…” What moves God to perform His great thoughts towards us is measured by the state of our heart. So, ensure that your heart is connected, ensure that your heart is fervent, pure and right before God. When God finds a man or woman with a right heart, He has found the right man or woman to be anointed, empowered and blessed!
