2014 – The Global church: Reclaiming our cities

Anger and frustration in many cities will cause people to search for answers at Gods’ feet for how they should respond. This will be a great season for planting of new seeds from God in the hearts of His children, because as they spent time to seek and get answers from God, God will start to plant seeds in their hearts. These germinating seeds will cause many Christians to become active in their communities in various ways. Many will join political parties to affect their influence on society. In Europe a great increase of Christians actively involved in politics and political parties will occur.

Churches and congregations (even poor congregations) will start taking responsibility for their area in cleaning up their parks and even beautifying areas. God will use this to impart His presence and His sense of love into these places. This change will be the mark that is left behind as a commemoration that the place has been claimed back for God. It will have multiple effects: practical help in communities will be intercession in action, the painting of an ugly wall or fixing a children’s playground in a park will be a prophetic action that will impart the presence of God into places. For example: By fixing up a children’s playground in a crime ridden park, crime will stop because of the spirit that has been left in that area. Reason cannot explain the change as it will be a spiritual influence that caused the change.

2014 – The Global Church: Church planting

Church planting: Many wealthier churches that use to start new churches in other affluent areas will start planting churches in poorer areas, and bring training and resources in these areas that have not been available before. There will be cross pollination, the two different parts of society, rich and poor, will bring their best to one another and bring Christ’s humanity out of each other. Many first world churches will feel the call to plant projects and churches in other less fortunate countries.

2014 – The Global church: Finances

Finances: The river of finance will have a steady flow through 2014. There wont be abundance or lack but enough. It is time for the church leaders to show wisdom in how they spend money and for what. Things that seem important in the past will take the lowest rank. Spending will sometimes shift dramatically or cause some departments to close down, or be incorporated into other departments. Although this will happen there won’t be a lot of lay-offs, but a refocusing on how money is spent and why.

The financial supply that is available in the church environment will be available for everybody ( those with good intentions and those with bad). Only when the seeds have grown and fully matured will the discernment come to see what is from God and what is not. Don’t be discouraged when you see both those with good intentions and bad intentions flourishing in the church environment because God will deal with each in the end.
