Prophetic Word For 2017
James Markert

The number 17 prophetically means to have victory and to overcome and it also means spiritual order.

Genesis 17, 1 Samuel 17, and John 17 are key chapters for this year.

2017 is a year of victory over sin, sickness and poverty. The church of God will experience both corporate and individual major victories this year. 2 Cor. 2:14 says, “Now thanks be to God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ…” You are going to win in life this year!

This is a year of overcoming the giants and mountains in your life. I see God supernaturally removing and releasing long-term sickness and debt from Christian’s lives. The Lord shall rebuke the devourer for your sake.

2016 for some Christians was a wilderness and pruning season but that has come to an end and it’s a new season your entering into in 2017. In this new year, believers are crossing over into the promise land – a land flowing with milk and honey. Believers are going to see the fulfilment of the promises of God. The promises of God are going to come to pass in your life. All of God’s promises are yes and amen. This is a year of receiving your inheritance in God.

The things that Christians sow into the kingdom of God shall supernaturally multiply into a harvest. The reaper shall overtake the sower. Your giving is going to multiply to impact and influence multitudes of people.

This is a year of overcoming faith – where the impossible shall become possible. The Lord is raising up powerful hero’s of the faith in the body of Christ like in the book of Hebrews. Their testimony will be that their faith pleases God!

In 2017 the Lord is anointing believers with the kingly anointing to live and walk in the power and authority of a king. King David was anointed as king when he was 17 years of age. Christians shall rule and reign as kings on the earth with servant hearts, bringing God’s justice and mercy to situations. Romans 5:17 says, “for if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ”.

God is bringing things in your life into divine alignment and spiritual order. The things that have been out of order in your life are going to begin to line up with the truth and authority of God’s Word.

It’s a year of greater unity in the body of Christ. We shall see many different denominations working together in love, joy and peace for the cause of the gospel. One family in Christ under one God! I see more combined church conferences and community events being planned and organised this year.

This is a year of greater consecration, purity and cleansing. Christians will experience the old things passing away in their lives and all things becoming new. There will be a putting off the old man and a putting on the new man. Joshua 3:5 says, then Joshua told the people, “Purify yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do great wonders among you.”

2017 is a year of greater glory, holy glory and harvest glory. God’s glory shall increase and expand into new and larger territory. There will be an outpouring of an abundance of significant and unusual miracles, signs and wonders in the marketplace and in church meetings. Also, we will see a great harvest of souls being brought into the kingdom of God this year through a demonstration of God’s selfless love and mighty power.
