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:
2023 THE YEAR OF RETRIBUTION & RECOMPENSE!
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.

1. When God leads You, He Anoints You despite Your Enemies.
Psalms 23:5 “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over”.
2. Overflowing anointing (Power) always accompanies the led (Sent)
Luke 10: 1 - After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
Luke 10:19 - Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
The Anointing sets us Free
(Freedom is never given, it is fought for)
Isaiah 49:24 – 26.....24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?
- A mighty force over thee – e.g. Sickness, depression, Confusion etc
- Lawful Captive – Justice has placed you there. The Devil has a reason
25 But thus SAITH the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.
26 And I will feed them that OPPRESS thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob
Psalms 124: 6 – 7....6 Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
The Anointing Establishes us Above our Enemies
Psalms 89: 20 – 25...20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:21 With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him.22 The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.23 And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him.
The Anointing gives us Access to Wealth and Peace
24 But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.25 I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.
