2013. I heard something on the number 13 here recently. I heard someone say that 13 is usually used in a negative term that it means rebellion, division etc. etc. but in the article I was reading this person said that it also means double blessing!! Now this was a new concept for me looking at the number 13 in this way. But it made sense to me especially after all the things the Lord had been speaking to me. It fits! So I just want to declare to you today that 2013 is not a negative year even with all the challenges we face as the body of Christ and as Americans. It is not a bad year for the Church! This is the year of RESTORATION AND DOUBLE BLESSINGS being heaped on the body of Christ. The Lord has been talking to me about Job here lately and I want to share what He has shown me.
Job 42: 10-12 says this:
And the Lord restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. 11 Then all his brothers, all his sisters, and all those who had been his acquaintances before, came to him and ate food with him in his house; and they consoled him and comforted him for all the adversity that the Lord had brought upon him. Each one gave him a piece of
silver and each a ring of gold. 12 Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning...
The Lord gave me a dream about 2-3 weeks ago and basically in the dream I was at a gas station just
waiting for something (I could see the glory cloud of God swirling around and I could see the light of God shining through) someone who worked for the gas station came to where I was and asked me "Are you Jessica Wilson?" I was just like "Yes I am Jessica Wilson" and this person said "Well Jessica you have just won the $2,000,000 lottery jackpot!" I just stood there. I was thinking how could this be? I never buy lottery tickets or anything like that. It must be a mistake; I didn't buy any lottery tickets! Well as I am thinking about this the man pulls out a receipt and shows it to me and said "You are Jessica Wilson who lives at such and such address?" I looked at it and this receipt had ALL of my personal information on it already!!! I was like "Yup that is me, but how is this possible that I won the jackpot when I never bought a lottery ticket?" He said, "I don't know Ma’am all I do know is that your information was found and picked in the system and you are the winner of the 2 million dollar jackpot!" At this point in the dream I saw in the glory cloud explosions going off like fireworks!! I heard people yelling and cheering and celebrating our Great God!
I was praying and asking the Lord what all this meant and that’s when the Lord started speaking to me about Job and how when Job repented like in verses 5 and 6, “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You. 6 Therefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.” After Job repented then God blessed Job and paid him back double of what had been taken from him IN EVERY SINGLE AREA!!!
Everything about 2013 emanates of increased, fresh grace from heaven, restoration, answers to prayers we have been waiting for, and double blessings being poured out!!! So much so we won't be able to contain it all! So get ready Sons and Daughters of the Most High God! Get ready for the heavens to open over you FULLY and get ready to do great exploits for the Kingdom of God!
Glory to God!
