2016 Prophecy: A Year of Shifting Seasons and Suddenlies

Last year, the Holy Spirit expressly to my heart that 2015 was the year of new beginnings. That rang true in my life and in the lives of many, many people who God called from the waiting room to the delivery room.

2015 was a challenging year in many ways, a year of stretching and transitioning from the old to the new—and now we’re going to the next. With regard to 2016, I heard the Holy Spirit say it’s a year of “shifting seasons and suddenlies.”

Those rhythmic words got my attention. What, exactly, does He mean? On the surface, it sounds like more change, more transition—and at least a few unexpected twists and turns along the way. I decided to press into pray and study out what this practically means. In this first article, I’m giving a general overview at the personal level. I will follow up with more specific details in the weeks ahead.

When Prophets of Doom Predict Natural Disasters on Specific Dates That Don’t Come to Pass

After Harold Camping repeatedly missed it on his rapture predictions, he finally admitted his statement was sinful. He even wrote a letter to the body of Christ apologizing for his end-of-the-world dramatics.

And that's rare—indeed, too rare.

Most prophets of doom refuse to acknowledge they missed it with clearly dated—and clearly failed—prophecies of asteroids hitting Puerto Rico, earthquakes making the Florida Keys no more, tsunamis putting South Florida completely under water, man-made disasters worse than 9/11 hitting New York, a major government official taking a bullet through the heart, earthquakes splitting the United States down the middle and ... shall I go on?

I am not sure where most of these poor prophecies started so I can't trace them back to their misguided root and call out names. You'll find a number of Internet prophets parroting these words as if God spoke to them personally. Calling out names is not the point anyway. The point is when these dated prophecies fail to come to pass, the many mouths trumpeting the doom and gloom also fail to take responsibility for the words that clearly fell to the ground. They can't even point to intercession staying God's hand of judgment because their prophecies left no room for His mercy.

Are These the False Prophets Jesus Warned Us About?

The Bible has plenty to say about false prophets in the Old and New Testaments. John the apostle warned us not to believe every spirit, but to test the spirits to see if they are from God because many false prophets have gone out into the world (1 John 4:1). Peter warned of false prophets arising among the people, as well as false teachers, who secretly bring in destructive heresies (2 Pet. 2:1).

13 Reasons Christians Don’t Walk in Miracles

Jesus assured us that signs would follow us if we believe. So why do so many believers come up short when they try to cast out devils? Why do they lay hands on the sick and the sick stay sick? Why do they long for miracle-working power but continue to struggle day in and day out with powerlessness?

It could be because they don't have the…
