In 1910 William Seymour prophesied that in 100 years there would be an
outpouring of God's Spirit and His Shekinah Glory that will be greater and more
far reaching than what was experienced at Azusa. 2010 is the year
prophesied about and here we are.

The Second Year . . .
In the year
2000 the Lord spoke to me
about seven years of plenty and the following seven years of famine. Last
November, 2007, I wrote about the beginning of the famine coming in 2008. Well,
here we are.
The emphasis of what the Lord showed me concerned spiritual
plenty and spiritual famine. In other words, the church storing up its treasure
of revelation in the Word of God in preparation for years of spiritual hunger in
As in much that is prophetic, the things spoken of also had to
do with the natural conditions in the world and how the church would relate to
We have seen a self-sufficient world system with a growing
disregard for, even a distaste for, the things of God. Even 911 only drove the
world to the church for a few weeks at most.
The church, however, much like Joseph in Egypt, has been
thriving both spiritually and materially. So much so, in fact, that when
national disasters like hurricane Katrina, Rita and the more recent, Ike, left
their wake of destruction, it was the Church that responded first at a grass
The Church has flourished financially in a way that has drawn
the attention of a jealous world system and caused a United States Senator, the
"Honorable" Charles Grassley, to lead an attack on several Pentecostal
ministries in an attempt to challenge their right to prosper.
From Capital Hill to Wall Street and beyond to Main Street,
the world system is reeling as a result of the break down of moral integrity in
the market place. Promises to "fix the problem" circulate from every quarter,
yet no one seems to be willing to suggest a real answer to the apparent
financial dilemma. After all, people and governments would have to learn how to
function without debt.
Imagine the popularity of any world leader who might suggest
that the governments of the world and their peoples learn to live on a balanced
This shaking of the god, mammon, is world-wide and will
continue as long as there is something that can be shaken.
Famine . . .
So, what happens in the "famine years" and how long will they
last? We have, as I understand it, beginning with 2009, six more years of world
events which will bring every nation, kindred, tongue and people to the
realization that they are spiritually bankrupt. As the promised answers and
fixes not only fail but exacerbate the world’s woes many will begin to turn to
the visible Church for answers. Unfortunately they will find that all that looks
like church is not necessarily church. This is exactly what was found after 911
and that is why people did not stay connected after two or three weeks of soul
11 Behold, the days are
coming, says the Lord God, when I will send a famine in the land, not a
of bread, nor a thirst for water, but [a famine] for hearing the words of the
Lord. Amos 8:11 (AMP)

These Next 7 Years . . .
2008 is going to be a year of transition; it is the year that a New Era
begins for the Church. The Jewish people have already entered in and are feeling
the pressure of transition even as I write.
The decisions made now determine the rapidity with which the Day of the Lord
will come. Prophecy is aligning itself to manifest the infallibility of the Word
of the Lord in this hour.
None will escape the result of this transition into this New Era. Jews,
Christians and the lost heathen masses (which includes the Moslem world), the
three people groups of the world with whom God is dealing, are all involved.
Each will see demonstration after demonstration of the God of Abraham, Isaac and
Jacob and know that He, and He alone is God.
The world is receiving one scientific breakthrough after another from the
Jews. God has given them a spirit of genius and insight which are bringing
answers to alleviate the physical suffering of humanity. That simple truth alone
would make the Devil determined to wipe them off the face of the earth. That,
coupled with the hatred the Devil has toward them for bringing forth the Seed of
the Woman, drives him to want to utterly destroy them.
The Church is receiving one spiritual breakthrough after another. God is
giving the Church spiritual revelation that will expose and ultimately destroy
the works of the Devil on every hand. Multitudes are being set free by the
Living Word of God. There are Streams In The Desert flowing out into the parched
lands of humanities need.
Soon, the peoples of the world will realize that they are in a famine like no
other recorded in the history of the earth. They will hunger and thirst for
answers that only the Truth of scripture can give them. This "famine" has
already begun to usher in the greatest "wave of revival" that the world has ever
seen. It is harvest time.
They will come to the Church to be fed the life sustaining Word of God and
will give anything to receive it. As they came from all over the world to Joseph
of old, they will come and give all to receive that which has been laid up in
store for these times. The "world" will starve until they come to the storehouse
of God. Like Jacob and his sons they will come and be "saved" from destruction.
Answer The Call . . .
Recently "The Call" came to Las Vegas. Thousands of
young people and their leaders and parents joined in fasting and prayer for the
City, the Nation and the World.
From whence comes this hunger to pray? It is a Sovereign move of the Spirit
of Supplication. It is an answer to the prayers of Him who ever lives to make
intercession for you and I. It is God Almighty stirring a people to seed the
clouds of heaven with prayer so that the harvest rains will fall.
First He stirred his "Gate Keepers," the Pastors of this and other cities
across the Nation. He stirred the Evangelists who yearn for the lost soul of
this great Country. As they obeyed and began to set aside denominational
differences and focus on the conquering Christ of the Cross, God sent a ground
swell of prayer among the young.
When the youth are moved, the parents are moved. It should be the other way
around but this is the time of the hearts of the fathers turning toward their
sons. Where fathers should stand and draw the hearts of the children to them,
they have been tricked by Satan and his deceptions. When Eli failed his sons,
God raised up a Samuel who would birth spiritual sons. When Jacob failed his
sons, in His mercy, the Lord raised up Joseph as a deliverer.
The storehouse is full and ready to feed the masses. There is only one prayer
that must be whispered, spoken, yea, shouted, and it is this:
Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers
into his harvest. Matthew 9:38 (KJV)
1 WAIT and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come
to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy
[priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for
the self-surrender that accepts the blessing]. 2 Why do you spend your money for
that which is not bread, and your earnings for what does not satisfy? Hearken
diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and let your soul delight itself in
fatness [the profuseness of spiritual joy]. 3 Incline your ear [submit and
consent to the divine will] and come to Me; hear, and your soul will revive; and
I will make an everlasting covenant or league with you, even the sure mercy
(kindness, goodwill, and compassion) promised to David.
Isaiah 55:1-3 (AMP)
A Look Ahead at 2007 (October 23, 2006 - gms)Before Us A Door
Just ahead is a season of decision that will establish life or
death, blessing or cursing for many who call themselves Christian. Those
in church and without will face this season of determination that could
leave them cut off, and that without remedy. This is a season when the
Spirit of the Lord will begin to distance heaven from the bearers of leaven.
When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut
to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying,
Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know
you not whence ye are: Luke 13:25 (KJV)
He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly
be destroyed, and that without remedy. Proverbs 29:1 (KJV)
This season of decision shall be to those who seek the Lord a
time of hearing His voice clearly and if they will but open the door of
their hearts to Him, they shall be established in life eternal and find
the wonderful reality of belonging to the family of God. These shall be
those who engage in the business of the kingdom and are enveloped in the
love, fellowship and provision of their Father and God. They will lack
nothing good and will have an abundant supply of all things of whatsoever
they ask. They shall not hunger nor thirst, for they shall be satisfied
during this precious time of communion.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice,
and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he
with me. Revelation 3:20 (KJV)
Just ahead is a season of deliverance for those who willingly
seek His face and yearn to know His ways. Prisoners to drugs, alcohol,
pornography, selfishness, anger, fear, loneliness and insecurity will find
their prison doors opened wide. There will be an angelic intervention in
their affairs and the Holy Spirit will lead them out into the perfect liberty
of Christ (2 Cor. 3:17).
And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing
the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself,
supposing that the prisoners had been fled. Acts 16:27 (KJV)
An Open Door
The season that lies before us is one of open doors of utterance.
Revelation knowledge will freely flow to those who have spent time with
Him in prayer. Ministry opportunities will avail themselves in increasingly
supernatural ways. Many who have been “first” shall find themselves “last,”
and the last shall become first. Those heretofore unheard of and hidden
will come to the forefront and move in the wonder working power of the
Holy Ghost. Even those in prison will live and walk as freemen and find
opportunity to speak as the oracles of God.
Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door
of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:
Colossians 4:3 (KJV)
There is not one open door that man, nor the enemy, can shut.
The Lord has set an open door before you, and who can shut that which He
This is a time of reward for those who have been faithful in
the little. Now you will be given much; much more than you ever dreamed
might be possible.
I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door,
and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept
my word, and hast not denied my name. Revelation 3:8 (KJV)
What the Lord is doing is not dependent upon your strength, but
He will reward the fact that you have kept and guarded His word in your
Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word
of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by
my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6 (KJV)
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that
cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them
that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)
Before you is the season of an open door into the fullness of
the Christ of God because you have put your trust in Him. He will not fail
you. Your season of harvest and increase is just ahead.
This is your season to excel in the things of God!
The land, the land; pray for the land for it is Mine, says the Lord.
I gave the land to My people Israel and will not repent. Though it may
be possessed by others for a season, yet will I not forget my covenant
with my people and I will restore the land unto them.
The land, the land; I will cover with My glory. I will pour out My
Spirit upon all flesh in this hour. All peoples in all lands will experience
a visitation of My Spirit and they shall know that I Am God.
The land, the land; I will send those who are My own to every land
to proclaim My love and call to those who have ears to hear and eyes to
see. I will cover the earth with My emissaries who will speak what they
hear while they abide with me in the secret place.
Brother Copeland delivered a word from the Lord
at the 2005 Washington, D.C. Victory Campaign. He said, "There will be
times when the glory cloud falls and completely fills a church. It will
boil out of the doors of the church and go all over the neighborhood. People
will be standing out in the street and won't be able to see one another.
It will glisten and be so glorious that people will see sickness and disease
running off of their bodies." He also said, "It is a time that we've all
been praying for. So rejoice and enjoy it saith the Father, because I do
all things for you to enjoy. So have fun in the glory and heal the sick
and raise the dead and go with Me and see if you can stay up with Me saith
2006, The Year of the Fix .
2006 is the year of the fix. Some have said it will be a year of “Heaven
on Earth” for those who are in covenant with God in Christ, and that it
shall be. The fix of
God will bring a change in the mix for 2006.
This will be the year of restoration and results. We, who are the prisoners
of hope spoken of in Zechariah going to have our dreams restored. The words,
to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare
that I will render double unto thee” (Zechariah 9:12 KJV), are being quickened
to those who have
not seen the vision of God manifest in their lives and ministries to
the degree that they have believed for. This is the year that you will
receive “double for your
trouble.” The needed fix will come in 2006.
Something is fixed when it is restored to its original condition and
can function in its designed purpose. Your fix in 2006 will set your life
and ministry in its God
ordained original condition so that you will be able to fulfill your
calling and realize your expectations in Christ Jesus.
Wherever you might have missed the timing of God, your timing will be
adjusted so that you will be back on time. Wherever you may have missed
a God sent
opportunity, you will be given another, even greater, opportunity.
Wherever you have suffered loss, you will have restoration seven times
The touch of heaven on earth is going to change the mix and fix your
fix in the first few weeks of 2006.
A Change in the Mix in 2006 . . .
How things have been done will change. Concepts, perceptions and traditions
will fall by the way side to make way for God’s new wineskins. There will
change in the mix in 2006 in order to bring about a much needed fix.
The Harvest will continue to surpass all that has ever gone before.
“The harvest truly is plenteous . . .” (Matthew 9:37), and the prayers
of those who have asked,
“that He would send forth laborers into his harvest” (Luke 10:), have
been answered. That great company of whom it is said, “How beautiful upon
the mountains are
the feet of [them] that bring good tidings, that publish peace; that
bring good tidings of good, that publish salvation” (Isaiah 52:7), are
on the scene and moving in the
power of Pentecost.
They are moving confidently and boldly in their calling because those
who have the rule over them (Hebrews 13:7; Hebrews 13:17; Hebrews 13:24;
commissioned, anointed and sent them (Romans 10:15 KJV). This is a
change in the mix and a much needed fix in the mind-set of those leading
the church and that
fix is releasing a great army into the harvest fields in 2006.
As the harvest of unrighteousness (judgement) falls upon those who have
sown to the flesh and that which is contrary to God and His Christ, there
will be an even
greater glory and harvest to those who have sown in righteousness.
The Almighty is fixing all that needs to be fixed in 2006 so that the
church, can be moved into the field of souls in the harvesting power of
heartfelt compassion and a

Now, in January 2005, I look at
where the Church is, the condition of the world, and I, again, look ahead
I believe that a more probable interpretation
would be that both the world system, along with the "church" that is dead,
without Christ, will be thrust into a "famine;" a time of seven years of
financial, moral, and emotional devastation.
I see the world coming to the living
Church (typified by Joseph) to "purchase" food.
The Christ loving, Christ honoring
Church (made up of those local assemblies of Jesus' disciples) will have
exceeding, abundantly, above what they need. They will have, to "sell"
without cost, that which will meet the need of those starving for moral
standards, emotional stability, and, yes, even material sustenance.
For seven years, the Church of the
First Born, that Glorious Church, will provide all that is needed in the
world, and the world will come to it, trading property, possessions, and
giving money to acquire that which only the Church can provide by the Holy
Ghost. Though She will not charge for what the Lord has given her, the
nations will bring great treasure to lay at her feet.
Multitudes will seek out the wisdom
of God as only can be found in the Spirit-filled, anointed, help
meet for her Lover, the Bride of Christ.
During this time will be fulfilled
the saying that, "I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh ..."
". . . The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray
ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into
his harvest" (Luk. 10:2 KJV).
Seven years of famine. What a great opportunity for the Church! Seven years
of supply for the hungry masses. Seven years of the supply of the Spirit stored
up for just such a day as this.
And then what? I don’t know. That window is closed at the present.
Watch Israel. Watch Damascus. Watch and Pray.
The Time To Thrive . . .
to the Oxford University Press dictionary, to “thrive” is “to grow or develop
well or vigorously; to prosper or flourish.” 2005 is the God appointed
time to thrive.
Lord spoke through several of His prophets in 2003 and during this past
year and said that 2005 would be the year of overflow. One definition of
“overflow” is “the excess not able to be accommodated by a space.” It also
means to “be excessively full or crowded.”
you can see, the plan of God in this hour is to bring about a year of exceeding,
abundance as was spoken of in the book of Ephesians:
to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at
work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly,
far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our
highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]— Ephes. 3:20 (Amp)
which are before, Philip. 3:13 (KJV)
word “superabundantly,” translated “exceedingly” in the King James Version
is a powerful combination of “super,” meaning “above, over, beyond; to
a great or extreme degree; extra large of its kind,” and “abundantly,”
which means, “existing or available in large quantities; plentiful.” So,
what we are being told is that this year will not only be, over and beyond
what would be considered plentiful, but will exceed it to such a degree
that our imagination cannot even grasp its measure. God has purposed to
bless us in such lavish manner that we have no frame of reference to comprehend
faith we appropriate what only God can comprehend and bring to pass. His
answer to the call of faith is causing us to flourish beyond our capacity
to contain the result which comes pressed down, shaken together, and overflowing.
is our time to thrive.
You Won’t Strive
In 2005 . . .
“strive” is to “make great efforts” or to “fight vigorously against.” You
won’t have to strive in 2005. The work of faith, the sowing of your life
and resources, has been done in the years gone by. What you have sown in
the past is what you will reap in the harvest of this year. 2005 is the
year of harvest.
farmer who sows seed knows that he must wait for the harvest. He cannot
make the seed increase. He must let it mature and bring forth after its
kind, some 30 fold, some 60, and some 100 times more. All he needs to do
is harvest what has developed from the seed sown. This is the miracle of
you continue in obedience to the Word of God and the work of the Holy Spirit
your harvest will increase. Your harvest is on the other side of obedience.
“God reserves and keeps for us the appointed weeks of the harvest” (Jeremiah
will not strive in 2005. Your time of fighting vigorously against the powers
of darkness is at an end. The victories won in prayer are manifesting during
this year. The imaginations of your mind have been brought into captivity
to the knowledge of Christ. Your enemy has been routed and flees seven
ways before you.
God has spoken to your heart will be withheld from you. In Habakkuk 2:3
we have read, “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the
end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because
it will surely come, it will not tarry.”
have waited in faith and now is the time appointed; now is the time when
“it shall speak.” This is the promised hour when “it will surely come,
it will not tarry.”
you may ask, is this year so different? It is the time of the former and
latter rains, the overflowing of the banks of the river of the Spirit.
It is the time of reaping of even that which we have not sown. It is 2005,
the appointed time to thrive.

Pastor George M. Stover Jr. is on audio tape available from the
Time For A Change
I said you'd be changed in
My presence, saith the Lord. If you have not experienced change in your
life, if your old ways are still prevailing, if your old man is still in
evidence, you have not spent the time with Me that I desire. It isn't a
matter of self control or disciplining your flesh with no help from Me,
If you'll spend time in My
presence you will be changed. Your old man will begin to pass away. Your
new man will begin to rise in the image of My Son. Your life will begin
to bear much fruit. The evidence of your walk with Me will change as a
result of spending much time in My presence.
If you're having trouble
getting rid of an old habit, if you're having trouble with your marriage,
if your family relationships aren't changing, you're not spending the time
with Me that would enable the change to come to pass. Your desire and the
motivation of your heart to walk uprightly before Me is a product of becoming
so close to Me that you do not want to bring hurt to Me.
In natural relationships,
when you love someone you want to do the right things for them. You don't
want to hurt them. Well, as you spend time with Me, saith God, as you spend
time in My presence, we'll develop a relationship that is closer than any
It will shape the pattern
of your living. You'll want to conform your ways to My Word simply because
it's the desire of your heart. Your life will change; but it will be a
product of your spending time with Me.

14 Years Ahead ...
Everyone is looking forward to what
this Year 2000 will bring. The opinions are as varied as the number of
people that have them.. What can the Christian expect. What will take place
this year? Next year? The next few years? Now that December 1999
has rolled into January2000 what will the next focus be.
Year after year the Lord seems to
stir in my spirit a glimpse of what lies ahead. This is not strange in
that the Scripture declares.
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he
will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself;but whatsoever
he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
Proverbs 2:3-6 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up
thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest
for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the
Lord, and find the knowledgeof God. For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of
his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
What I see in the mind and heart
of God concerning the Church and the next seven years is, in type, found
in the Book of Genesis in the 41st Chapter. This is the historical record
of Joseph and Pharaoh of Egypt prior to the years of great famine across
the then known world. Pharaoh was visited with a dream and sought to know
the meaning of it. Joseph was brought out of prison to reveal the matter
and God gave him the interpretation of it and the wisdom, understanding
and knowledge as to what to do.
7 Years of Plenty ...
Joseph and his wisdom from God
is a type of the Church and her place in the world today. The world system,
and it's leadership, is typified by Egypt and Pharaoh. The Church has the
wisdom understanding and knowledge of what to do in this hour. [1 Chronicles
Genesis 41:29-30 Behold, there come seven years of great plenty
throughout all the land of Egypt: And there shall arise after them
seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land
of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;
Unprecedented prosperity is already
sweeping the world. The greatest transfer of wealth in the history of planet
earth is taking place and will continue for the next seven years. These
will be years of great plenty throughout all the land ..
7 Years of Famine . . .
Could it be that the seven years
of famine picture the tribulation period? Is it possible that the Church
will be caught away and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land ...?
While no one really knows when the
Church will be caught up in the air, we do know that world events clearly
point toward the soon coming of the Lord. In any event, this is the greatest
hour the Church has ever seen! She is positioned to receive great increase
both in number and in substance over the next 7 Years of Plenty.
It is, without a doubt, Harvest
time and time to make a decisive dedication of our lives to the will and
purpose of our soon coming King of Kings and Lord of Lords. - Maranatha
