2004: Year of Consolidation
(week 52/03)
Olubi Johnson

The year 2004 will be a year of consolidation in the Kingdom of God: united establishment of the fear of God, the love of God in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

It will be a time or year to seek the Lord.

Hosea 10:12 (NKJV): Sow for yourselves righteousness; Reap in mercy; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD, Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.

It will be a time to seek the Lord to be healed of the 2nd. Circumcision: making it easy to walk in the fear and love of God.

It will be a time to seek the Lord to grow in all things by speaking the truth: God’s Word in love:

Ephesians 4:15-16 (NKJV): but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head–Christ

By prophetic revelation we declare that 2004 will be a year or day of consolidation, “an acceptable” year of the Lord in which He may be found, in which He will help us by His Holy Spirit when we seek Him, to prepare us for the fire of God’s judgement that will start in the Church in about 2005.

2 Corinthians 6:2 (NKJV): For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you,
And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

Malachi 3:1-3 (NKJV): “Behold, I send My messenger, And he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, Will suddenly come to His temple, Even the Messenger of the covenant, In whom you delight. Behold, He is coming,” Says the LORD of hosts. “But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire And like launderer’s soap. He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, And purge them as gold and silver, That they may offer to the LORD An offering in righteousness.

Prophetically we declare that the year 2005 marks the beginning of the “day of the vengeance of our God” while 2004 is an acceptable year of the Lord to prepare us for the day of the vengeance of our God.

These prophetic revelations give us understanding of the times (1Chronicles. 12.32) or years and seasons (1Thessalonians. 5.1) of God’s purposes for His church motivating us to do what is necessary to walk in these purposes.

Isaiah 61:1-3 (NKJV): “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor;He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,To proclaim liberty to the captives,And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD,And the day of vengeance of our God;To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion,To give them beauty for ashes,The oil of joy for mourning,The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;That they may be called trees of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”

So in this new year let us seek the Lord daily with a sense of urgency in:

The fear of the Lord,

The love of God,

The Word of God,

And Prayer in the Spirit.
