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!

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.
