1 JANUARY 2024!


From the desk of one of His faithful servants Chief Apostle L.R.Gooden Jr., as we embark upon the new year of 2024/5784 the Lord spoke to me that it will be a year of Open Doors for Revelation, Re-Alignment and Renewal for Prophetic Fulfillment according to:


Revelation 3:8 NKJV…“I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.


The Jewish Year 5784 began on Rosh Hashanah September 15th 2023 using the Hebrew Alphabet and Gematria system.


5 = Grace: (1000 years - Millennium)


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


8 = New beginnings: (10 years - Decade)


4 = Door, prophetic fulfillment: (1 year - Year)


Of all the prophetic numbers aligned with 5784, I feel led to focus primarily on the number 4. This Hebrew year, represented by 5784, holds tremendous significance for the number 4 and its corresponding letter Dalet. I believe this year will be a season of radical transformation, renewal and realignment, if we obey the Lord’s voice. We must be aware though that there will be a spiritual battle for the effectual door of promise to be opened. While the number 4 is called Dalet in Hebrew and it represents a picture of a tent door, or open door, I believe that the Lord is speaking to us even deeper about these spiritual doors.


The spiritual meaning of door is the entry point to a new space. Doors represent the transition from one place to another. They are also symbolic of change, especially when they are closed or locked. When a door opens, it opens up possibilities to new experiences.  Doors can also be considered as exit points as well as entrances. The person who opens the door decides whether it will be an entrance or exit point.


Doors are also used to keep out unwanted visitors, but they can also be used as an invitation for others to come inside and enter into your life, mind and heart.  A door often represents the opening of new possibilities and challenges in the future.


2024/5784 is going to be a year of the voice of the Doorkeeper. Doors will begin to appear for many, with heavenly encounters and signs showing the way. Borders will open between new partnering nations/regions/houses. Beware of any vulnerability in defenses that may be exploited, so it is necessary to prepare your defenses before the new year.  It’s Time to chart a new path for prophetic fulfillment. 


In the Hebrew calendar, the number 8 symbolizes new beginnings, and the open door represents a gateway to God's blessings and breakthroughs. Just as the Israelites crossed the Red Sea on dry land, leaving behind their bondage and entering into freedom, this year will mark a significant transition for God's people. 


Additionally, the number 80 in Hebrew is represented by the letter "pey" (), which signifies a time of completion and fulfillment. Again, the number 4 in Hebrew is represented by the letter "dalet" (), which symbolizes a doorway or a path. It signifies stability, foundation, and the four corners of the earth. Therefore, as we step through the door of this new beginning, the number 4 reminds us to establish a solid foundation in our faith and embrace the divine path that lies ahead.


The open door signifies not only physical doors of opportunity but also spiritual portals unveiling fresh encounters with GOD. As we align our hearts with God's purposes, we will witness the fulfillment of His promises and experience a greater outpouring of His Spirit. It is a time to seek His face, listen intently to His voice, and step boldly through the doors that He opens before us.


Therefore we must stay 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 Prophets & Preachers. 


So Now Under a strong Anointing of the Holy Spirit I RELEASE TO YOU THE THEME AND SCRIPTURE FOR KBCMI FOR 5784/2024:


5784 The Year of the Open Door for Revelation, Realignment and Renewal for Prophetic Fulfillment!


Revelation 3:8 NKJV…“I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.


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 5784/2024.


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



Chief Apostle, L.R. Gooden Jr.

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.
