 2017 - "I'm Very Excited About What I'm Seeing That This Year Means!"

As I begin this Teaching Letter, as soon as I began it a “rush” of Joy just came over me!  There’s just something about when I settle in and begin to write our Covenant Partners and Friends . . . . There’s a Love that comes over me for the People that help us DO this Ministry!  You are the ones that are sending out the Teachings, the Free Bibles, Free Ministry Helps to Inmates and People all over the World!  You are the ones that are helping “In Building God A House” in The Word of Life Churches.  You are the ones that God is using and we could not do it without you!  What a significant part you are to this Ministry and the Outreach of it!  THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH COVENANT PARTNERS AND FRIENDS!  THANK YOU FOR SOWING YOUR FINANCIAL SEEDS AND PRAYING FOR US!  WE COULD NEVER THANK YOU ENOUGH!  WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL FOR YOU!  Happy and Blessed New Year!  We Bless You in Jesus Name!

        If you are new to JCM then this will be a wonderful new Revelation from The Lord, yet if you have been receiving JCM’s Teachings for a while this will be a review for you of this one fact and that is that NUMBERS MEAN WORDS TO GOD AND HIS PEOPLE!  When you and I see Numbers in The Word of God we are also seeing WORDS, Beloved!  The Hebrew People have always known this and they still practice this Truth today!  NUMBERS ARE A WAY OF COMMUNICATION between God and His People!  That is why you see so many Numbers in The Bible!  When one looks at the Book of Revelation, for example you see the Number “12” many times, don’t you?  Well, the Number “12” has many Word meanings to it, just some are Divine Government, Divine Power, New Jerusalem and Apostle.  Now we are in the Prophetic Year of “17!”  And I must write to you that I’M VERY EXCITED ABOUT WHAT I AM SEEING THAT THIS YEAR OF “17” MEANS!  We will begin this Month to explore and dig into this Prophetic Time of “17” and Lord Willing, continue on it next Month.  So, what does “17” mean?

17” Means


* Elect of God
* Triumph over Trials & the Devil
* New Direction
* Order
* New Life


       Because there is MUCH to “touch” when we are looking at the NUMBER “17” and its Prophetic Meaning for us this year, we will take one Meaning at a time. Let’s begin with ELECT OF GOD.  The word “elect” means to choose (someone) to hold public office or some other position by voting.  To choose, pick, decide and select.  ONE WHO IS CHOSEN, DESIGNATED OR APPOINTED, FAVORED, ONE WHO IS COMING UP NEXT!


17” means “Elect of God.”  This is so exciting!  Seventeen “17” is the Prophetic Year for God to “Elect” or choose (someone(s)) to hold positions for Him!  Can there be any greater thing to happen to a Child of God?  For Father, Himself to choose you (elect you) to do something for Him and The Kingdom!  WOW!  It’s the Time for The Lord to “let you and I know” about some great decisions and selections that HE has made on our behalf!  This is some wonderful news, Beloved!  “17” is the Time for those that have been preparing and being faithful to God and His Kingdom to get the DECISON of God that we have been CHOSEN, DESIGNATED, APPOINTED, and FAVORED! 

       It's Time for God's Children to hear the magnificent direction of God that IT'S OUR TURN!  Hallelujah!   It’s Time for us TO COME UP NEXT!  I am taking this for me!  I encourage you to do the same!  Why?  Because it is TIME FOR IT!  It’s the Time of “17!”  And “17” MEANS to CHOOSE someone(s) for a POSITION, to PICK someone, to DECIDE and SELECT someone(s)!  “17” MEANS Saints of God, that people will be CHOSEN, DESIGNATED, APPOINTED, FAVORED and will be notified that THEY ARE COMING UP NEXT!  Hallelujah!!!
       Really think about this Church!  What we are talking about here is DESTINY!  It’s Time for You and I to be placed in the “positions” that God has “picked,” “decided” and “selected” for us!  We talked about in a previous Teaching Letter that every day of our lives have been scheduled by God in a book that He has written about your life in.   

"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother's womb. 14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!  It is amazing to think about.  Your workmanship is marvelous-and how well I know it. 15 You were there while I was being formed in utter seclusion!  16 You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe.  EVERY DAY was recorded in YOUR BOOK!" Psalm 139:13-16 (TLB)
       Hebrew Scholars call this "book" The Book of Destiny.   As you continue to hear from God and follow the pages of YOUR BOOK you will find yourself on a path with Him. 

For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works WHICH GOD PREDESTINED (PLANNED BEFOREHAND) FOR US [TAKING PATHS WHICH HE PREPARED AHEAD OF TIME], THAT WE SHOULD WALK IN THEM [living the GOOD LIFE which He PREARRANGED and MADE READY for us to live].” (Ephesians 2:10 (AMPC))
