Greetings – This is a special post for the unfolding year of 2016:
2016 is a year of partnerships, not partnerships as you would suppose. It’s not partnerships to see what you can get. It’s partnerships to see what you can give because the partnerships of 2016 are not partnerships of contract. They’re partnerships of covenant.
You are living in a time and a season where Isaiah 61 and 62 are going to accelerate and the partnerships that are going to take place in 2016 are going to come from the foundation of Isaiah 61 that leads to Isaiah 62, and then Isaiah 60 is finally going to become real. Because you can’t ‘Rise and Shine and your light come’ because you don’t know who you are.
Faith, Hope, and Love is a partnership for 2016!
God’s going to release such a grace of His love in this season, unsurpassed by any previous season. He’s going to reveal His love. He’s already showing up in the most unlikely places. And He’s showing that He wants to move into every neighborhood on planet earth because He wants every neighborhood of planet earth to move into heaven’s reality. He wants every neighborhood to move into His reality, but if you move into His reality then you’re going to be a different kind of people. Because if you move into His reality, then you’re going to be a people who will build, raise up, and make things new. You’ll be a people of blessing, a people of multiplication, a people of possessing. You’ll be a people of partnership, a partnership with God, a partnership with one another, a partnership of faith, hope, and love, realities of community and community only, because faith is towards a person, love comes from a person and hope is in a person.
In November God spoke to me prophetically that I have ‘Red Wings’. This is a very unique prophetic word and it relates to one of three things given to me by God as a spiritual inheritance. God has challenged me to consider the three aspects of spiritual inheritance given to me to serve my role in the implementation of God’s New Covenant Life and Grace in the earth. These are the issues of En Gedi, a testimony of a grassroots revolution that brings people out of the caves of the world to a paradise connection with God in Christ. This was given to me in the late 1980’s while ministering on the streets of Bellingham, Washington. The second is a 100-year plan as was revealed in my personal experience with my great-grandfather Osten Hanson, my grandfather Simon, my father Simon, me, and now the generations beyond me. This was given to me at the close of 1999 through a vision of my great-grandfather Osten and then a personal encounter with the Holy Spirit, and the making of a covenant with the laying on of hands of my father before he died. The third thing was given to me five years ago in my experience with Anderson Creek Lodge – a testimony of multi-generational, diverse training, equipping, and activating of ministry.
So what are the Red Wings? The substance of the vision for the training and equipping was also embodied in Red Wing Seminary – the ministry training school that my great-grandfather played a key part in developing and facilitating. It was a significant Norwegian religious school in the U.S, the first women’s ministry school of its kind, a music school, a sports school and other aspects of diverse training centered around the Lutheran faith with influence by a movement begun by Hans Nielsen Hauge, a lay revivalist who was considered to be a key influencer of the industrialization of Norway in the late 18th and early 19th century.
The three-fold testimony of a grassroots revolution, a 100-year inheritance, and a diverse expression of equipping and resourcing to the generations will take on a greater focus in my vision for 2016. This three-fold dynamic will be integrated in my ability to affect the nations and the generations with New Covenant life and Grace, thus barren places will become a testimony of the Abundant Life that Jesus came to bring. Prophetically exposing false walls and activating the pursuit of truth in the generations will enable an increase of the mandate of House of Bread Ministry in the new year.
This is a year of partnership! It is a season of partnership with faith, hope, and love. It is also a year of partnerships with others for the sake of God’s purposes in the earth. It is through connection with others that we will be enabled to discover the increasing testimony of the partnership of faith, hope and love. God has brought an anointing for free people to be planted in the earth for the generational purposes of God’s kingdom in the nations. Trees of righteousness in Christ are being planted in order to build, raise up, and make things new in the earth. This will be a foundation for, and a focus of, the efforts of House of Bread Ministry in 2016.
Isaiah 61:4b – 5 …“That they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations.
I am excited for this year of 2016!
