My prayer and my great desire for you is that you would be growing in the knowledge of God daily and that you would find your greatest satisfaction in fellowship with Him. This year has opened at a very rapid pace, with our 20/20 Encounter bringing in the new year as well travel to Las Vegas, Nevada, Corona, California, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Whiteville, North Carolina. In each of these cities God moved in a powerful and unique way. This is truly a time of the
greatest outpouring in the earth! I also began 2020 with the goal to finish a small book on faith by February 15. I have really enjoyed the writing process for this book, and I am believing that the book will go around the world to be a tool for believers to walk in the life of victory that God intended for each of us. I am asking that you please agree with me in prayer that this book project would be completed by the goal I have set in the manner God intended. This month my intention was to continue to share the prophetic word God revealed to me for 2020 and beyond. However, as I prepared to write to you, I felt impressed by the Holy Spirit to share with you on the subject of revelation knowledge. Revelation knowledge can be defined as the unveiling of the character and nature of God to humanity to discover their purpose and relate to God in the correct manner. At creation, God’s intention was to educate humanity through revelation knowledge.
Adam and Eve could only understand their purpose for living when it was revealed to them by God. Revelation knowledge is as critical to the life of believers as the heart is a critical organ for the human body to function. Proverbs 29:18 declares, “Where there is no vision [no revelation of God and His word], the people are unrestrained” (AMP). The following are some critical values that will give understanding about the nature of revelation and how you can walk in a lifestyle of
• Revelation is a gift given to humanity by God himself (John 3:27).
• Revelation knowledge is birthed from the heart of God, not from the human
soul or intellect (Matthew 16:17).
• Humanity must receive revelation as a gift from God (Romans 8:32).
• The gift of God’s faith to us must grab revelation knowledge (Hebrews
• Revelation must be applied (James 2:17).
• Applied revelation is a place in which we can grow in understanding (Luke
• Wisdom and revelation work together as one to cause us to be more fruitful
One of my continual prayers is that God would daily grant me the spirit of wisdom and revelation. It is the prayer that the Apostle Paul prayed for the Church of Ephesus and is it my prayer for you. “I do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him” (Ephesians 1:16-17). Thank you once again for faithfully standing with the vision and purpose God has given this ministry. Together we are advancing the Kingdom of God around the world. As I finish this letter to you today, I am in Canada ministering in my first
international trip of 2020. This year we will be ministering internationally in Germany, Iceland, England, Switzerland, Albania, South Africa, Romania, and Moldova.
As always, we want to hear from you! Please share your testimonies or prayer requests by e-mailing us at email@example.com. We are committed to standing with you to see the purposes of God established in your life! We love you and are honored to have you connected to us as a partner. If have not already done so please be sure to access the word of the Lord for 2020 beyond.
Welcome to 2020!
I know I have stated this to you many times before but I believe it bears repeating in this new season: This is the greatest time to be alive in Church history! Though we certainly are not without challenges, we are privileged that God has chosen us to live in the earth For Such A Time As This! I am honored that God has chosen to connect us in His purpose for this hour.
As we begin this new year, I want to share in this letter some of the prophetic insight God has given me for this current season of 2020. Every year for at least the last ten years, God has given me some prophetic insight to the coming year/season. This past year from the morning of September 4, 2019 until just before Christmas, the Holy Spirit began to speak to me about 2020 and beyond. I should note as I usually do with annual prophetic words that I believe God operates in seasons rather than calendar years.
This is a season of unique and divine strategies from heaven being released to earth for those who have a listening and attentive ear. I am releasing great grace to My people to wait on the Lord, listen to the word of the Lord, and receive great wisdom for the application of the word of the Lord. This is a season in which My great desire is to release divine words from heaven that would quickly and speedily come to pass as My people lean into me with corresponding wisdom. I am releasing keys that would unlock the manifestation of prophetic words and mandates, some given long ago. For indeed this is a season in which the just shall walk by faith as never before. I want to enlarge My people's vision and ability to see and hear from heaven, so position yourself properly and be prepared to act and do as never before. For I desire greater impact. The door to greater impact and influence in the nations of the earth is greater faith and trust in the words I speak.
As I heard God speak these words to me, I became very excited! Like you, I am passionate about hearing the word of the Lord and knowing the wisdom of God to bring it to pass. Rest assured that as passionate as we are to know the wisdom and the word of the Lord, God is committed to not only minister the word of the Lord to us, but also to give us the wisdom to bring those words to pass. He has also told us prophetically that 2020 is a season of "unique and divine strategies...for those who have a listening ear." In light of what God has spoken to us for this season, I want to offer some key principles that I learned and practiced that I believe will help you experience all that God desires for you in this season.
Be intentional and committed to a lifestyle of friendship with God. Many years ago as I was seeking God for wisdom in the vision He had placed on my heart, He spoke to me so clearly. "Everything you need to know when you need to know it you will know if you simply stay in a posture of fellowship with God." Those words brought me to a place of great peace in walking out God's purpose for my life. It was not my responsibility to make the word of Lord come to pass but simply to be God's friend. It is in the context of friendship with God that He gives divine instruction and wisdom.
Be intentional in walking in the fear of the Lord. A simple definition of the fear of the Lord is simply: a posture of the heart that takes the Godhead seriously in every area of life. As believers, it is critical to walk in the fear of the Lord. We know that the fear of the Lord is the beginning place for receiving the wisdom of God. "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." (Proverbs 9:10).
Be intentional in receiving the word by faith. Often when God speaks about our future or concerning a particular area of our lives, it is often completely contrary to our current circumstance or experience. It is vitally important that as we discern His voice that we receive His word and declare what He said about our situation. When we receive His words of faith and declare with our mouths what He said, we are cooperating with God's ability to bring transformation to our situation. Like Mary, we want the posture of our heart to be, "Let it be to me according to your word." (Luke 1:38).
Obey whatever God speaks. While it is God who fulfills His word, it our obedience to His word that facilitates those promises coming to manifestation. God's strategy for bringing His promises to manifestation is through divine wisdom that often cannot be understood through the natural mind. David, instead of using Saul's armor for his battle with Goliath, chooses five smooth stones and a sling in his hand. Jesus' first miracle of turning the water into wine only takes place after the servants obey him by filling the water pots with water. In this season, the Holy Spirit longs to give us divine strategy; be postured to obey the voice of God in a manner that is His will but often will be beyond our natural comprehension.
My prayer for you is that 2020 would be a defining year for you and your family in the purposes of God. May you find your greatest delight in knowing Him and producing eternal fruit. Over the next two months, I will continue to share more of the prophetic word God has given to me for the 2020 season. If you would like to access the complete word now, it can be found on our website:
https://www.abnersuarez.com/word-for-2020.html. Also, the next two sermons of the month will be sharing the word of the Lord for 2020.
As always, we want to hear what God is doing in your life. Please share your testimonies at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, the application deadline for our trip to Rwanda February 28 - March 9 is January 31. We'd love to have you join us on that exciting trip! More information and the application are available at https://www.abnersuarez.com/rwanda.html.
Thank you once again for standing with us through your partnership with this ministry. You are in my prayers daily and you hold a special place in my heart. Together we are making a difference in advancing the Kingdom of God.
My prayer for you this morning, as it is nearly every day, is that "...you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding" (Colossians 1:9). As I prayed, I also sensed in my heart that this new season (2020) will be:
The holiday season tends to be an extremely busy time of year for all us but I want to encourage you to take quality time and enter the new year intentionally. As I enter each new year, I take time to reflect and meditate on the previous year and ask God for wisdom to enter into the new year as He intends. The following are questions I personally bring before the Lord to inquire of Him as I enter the new year:
I also want to invite you and your family to prayerfully consider joining us for Encounter 20/20 on December 30 and 31 at Cornerstone Church in Raleigh, North Carolina. Encounter 20/20 will be two nights of worship, teaching, prophecy and divine encounter. I will be ministering both nights and worship will be led by the Cornerstone worship team and special guest Rob Cole. I cannot think of a better way to begin 2020 than by coming together with the Body of Christ.
As I conclude this letter; I want to update you that I have just concluded a life changing weekend at the Government of God Church in Cebu City, Philippines. I ministered three days in seven sessions. Each day we fed all those in attendance lunch and sent them home each day with rice. God moved in an incredibly powerfully way throughout the weekend. Healings and miracles were commonplace and the word of the Lord was released over the nation. Many received life changing encounters. Please agree with me in prayer that God would grant us wisdom on strategies to further the Kingdom of God in the nation of the Philippines. Our desire is to build long-term relationships with local churches, believing for nations to be discipled in our day. Your partnership is what allows us to have these weekends in third world nations among very impoverished people of the world. I am now in Nepal preparing to minister to leaders from around the nation.
Thank you for your continued love and support of this ministry. Together we are making a difference and serving our generation!
The best is yet to come!
My hope and prayer are that this letter finds you trusting God and living in great hope. This is the greatest time to be alive in the earth for the Body of Christ! My encouragement to you is that you see your future as God sees it, make decisions about your future today, and never ever allow the negativity or failures of the past to define your present. As you live with this mindset, know that your greatest days of eternal life in the earth are still ahead!
I want to continue our foundation series this month by exploring the necessary value of feeding our spirit with the appropriate spiritual food. Our foundation is built properly when we are continually developing and practicing the fundamentals. Humanity is first a spirit being who has a soul that is housed in a body. Our soul (which is composed of our mind, will and emotions) has no mind of its own. The soul will think and therefore the body will behave in the way it has been trained. When we become born again, because we have been given the power of the Holy Spirit to live on the inside of us, God now holds us responsible for feeding our spirit which has been created to rule our body with the appropriate diet. What we feed our spirit defines our life in the earth (Proverbs 4:23). In the natural, if we feed our soul a heavy diet of sugar it will then begin to crave foods with a high volume of sugar. If we are not careful, we can fall victim to addiction. This is obviously a negative example. The goal of the Godhead is that we would find all our needs met in Him and literally become addicted to encountering His beauty and life with a deep longing for His presence. If we are not pursuing this goal, then the foundation of spiritual life is dangerously flawed. The Godhead has deep encounters and secrets He wants to reveal to us that are only discovered in intentional times of fellowship.
Over 23 years ago I began this journey of learning to feed my spirit with the appropriate nutrients. I still vividly remember the first day of engaging the Godhead in an intentional time of fellowship. I prayed for just about everything I knew to pray about thinking at least 20 or 30 minutes had passed, only to discover about five minutes had passed. I learned that when we first begin to practice the fundamentals such as fellowship and prayer, our spirit develops much like a natural muscle develops when we exercise. If we have never run a mile it will be nearly impossible to run a marathon on our first day of intentional training. We then must become intentional in developing a lifestyle of fellowship and prayer.
As I began to practice an intentional lifestyle of fellowship, I slowly developed a greater capacity to commune with God, sometimes for hours at a time. As I developed (and I'm still developing) this lifestyle of fellowship, I found that my physical body would begin to crave the presence of the Lord. At other times throughout the day, I would sense this invitation from the Holy Spirit to simply sit at His feet and worship the King. I learned like David you can actually develop a craving in your body for the presence of God as you feed your spirit man the presence of God and the word of God. David declared "My soul longs, yes, even faints for the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God" (Psalm 84:2). I also learned my practice of fellowship with God created an even greater desire to know God.
We can create a greater desire to know God by our daily practice of communion with God. One of the most beautiful aspects of developing within ourselves a greater capacity to know God is that though we can live content, we are not fully satisfied. For eternity God has invited us to explore the reality of knowing Him that will never be exhausted. The created one (us, humanity) can never exhaust the Creator (God). My prayer for you each and every day is that you would continually develop a deeper desire to know God and as you develop a desire to know Him, you would live life fully satisfied!
I want to once again thank you for your continued partnership with this ministry. Together we are making an impact and advancing the gospel of the Kingdom in the nations of the earth. In addition to sending your testimonies, please also send us your prayer requests so we may stand with you in faith and believe with you for God's word to be manifested in your and your family's life. I also want to once again thank many of you for joining us during our recent Faith Conference with Dr. Jerry Savelle. I believe it was a life changing event that equipped us to enter 2020 properly. If you would like to purchase an MP3 or CD set from the conference, you can do so in our web store.
My prayer for you on a continual basis is that you would grow in the knowledge of God. This is a wonderful season of God releasing the spirit of wisdom and revelation to His body. I believe this is a season of unprecedented revelation for the Body of Christ. I encourage you to continue taking time daily to listen, hear and meditate on the voice of God.
This month I want to share with you a brief story from my life. Over 19 years ago as a graduate student, I began working in an extremely difficult work environment. It became very apparent that my immediate superior would be unrelenting in his difficult posture towards me. One day after returning home from a particularly challenging day, I cried out to God, “God, I do not need to take this anymore.” Immediately the Holy Spirit responded to me so clearly (so clearly that it sounded audible), “You do not need to take this but if you do not stay in this job I cannot do what I want to do in your heart!” This was certainly not the words I wanted to hear from God. I wanted to quit that job and find a much more desirable work environment. I knew what God had spoken yet I went to get counsel from a staff pastor for whom I had been volunteering, hoping he would counsel me to quit. Instead, He encouraged me to stay in the position.
I decided to “receive” additional counsel. On this occasion, I went to the Senior Pastor (hoping once again for him to counsel me to leave the job). He too counseled me to stay in the job. Finally, I called my father and told him how difficult the work environment was and that I should certainly be looking for other employment. As you might guess by now, He too counseled me to finish the commitment I had made to the workplace while finishing my graduate degree.
By God’s grace, I was able to finish the commitment I had made to work while completing my graduate degree. Looking back all these years later, this challenging work environment where God placed me became a beautifully transformational season. God had actually answered my desire to grow in His character and nature by placing me in an extremely difficult environment, one in which I was being severely mistreated. The difficult situation I was placed in was an invitation to grow in the character and nature of God.
I wanted to highlight the key aspects from what I learned and continue to learn from this experience that I believe are foundational in our lives as disciples.
Godly counsel is essential for our lives as disciples (Proverbs 19:20-21).
God often allows what He could prevent in His sovereignty as an invitation to grow in His nature (I am obviously not speaking about physical or emotional abuse) i.e., Joseph, David, Daniel.
Having established these two foundational principles, I want to offer two reflective questions for your consideration this month:
Are you a believer who has and allows others/leaders to speak into your life and give you counsel on a consistent basis? Why or why not?
What difficult and challenging situation has God currently allowed in your life? Are you intentionally allowing it to be an opportunity to grow in the character and nature of God?
I want to once again thank you for your continued partnership with this ministry. Together we are making an impact and advancing the gospel of the Kingdom in the nations of the earth. In addition to sending your testimonies, please also send us your prayer requests so we may stand with you in faith and believe with you for God's word to be manifested in your and your family's life.
My prayer is that this email finds you well and growing in the knowledge of God. As I sat to write to you this morning, I had no intention of releasing the following prophetic word, but I felt prompted from the Holy Spirit to share this word that I believe is specific to my partners in this season.
My beloved, do not grow weary in well doing, for you are entering a season of reaping your due reward. For this is a season of acceleration, expansion, and of producing fruit for the Kingdom of God as never before. This is a season to reap the fruit of your fasting, intercessions, quick obedience and declarations. The enemy has tried to get many to grow weary in this season and caused them to be moved by what they see, but I say to you do not be moved by what you see or what you have even heard in the media but only be moved by what you hear Me speak in this season. Only be moved by what you hear from Me! Stand on My word and stand in what I have spoken! Declare what I have spoken.
Some of you stand at a crossroads in this season in your life, but I say to you that I have not left you alone. Lean into Me for wisdom, for this is a season of unprecedented wisdom in the earth for My people; wisdom to navigate the season you now find yourself in, wisdom that if applied, will navigate the next 15 years of your life, wisdom for breakthrough long ago believed for, wisdom to birth nations, changing ministries, wisdom to begin businesses, wisdom to begin businesses in which there are currently no markets.
This is a season for the Body of Christ to advance the Kingdom of God through the uncommon display of the wisdom of God. The nations of the earth are waiting for the uncommon display of the wisdom of God through the people of God representing His wisdom. So, lean into My wisdom and learn to discern words from My mouth. As you learn what heaven is speaking, declare what heaven is speaking in this season. Declare over yourself, declare in your life, declare over your family, and see quickly the manifestation of what I am speaking in this season. For this is indeed a time of great acceleration for My people, but they must choose to live above the chatter of the kingdoms of the world if they are to embrace the full purposes of heaven in this season.
As you know, for a large part of this year in my letters to you the Holy Spirit has directed me to focus on values that are necessary in building our lives in the manner God designed. Jesus taught us in the Sermon on the Mount that two categories exist in humanity--those building foolishly and those building wisely. Those building wisely heard the voice of God and obeyed (and therefore built wisely); those who built foolishly heard the voice of God and did not obey (Matthew 7:24-29). I encourage you to take time to read and meditate on the prophetic word given in this email. Ask God for wisdom and any thought processes and corresponding actions that need to be applied as a result of reading this word. Perhaps it's simply a matter of receiving the word by faith and God showing in the future how it will apply to you. Regardless of your current situation as it relates to the prophetic word, I encourage you to consider the word given in this email.
I want to once again thank you for your continued partnership with this ministry. Together we are making an impact and advancing the gospel of the Kingdom in the nations of the earth. My hope is that if you have not already done so you will make plans to join us for Faith Conference October 11 and 12, 2019, at Covenant Love Church in Fayetteville, North Carolina with our very special guest Dr. Jerry Savelle.
In addition to sending your testimonies, please also send us your prayer requests so we may stand with you in faith and believe with you for God's word to be manifested in your and your family's life.
My prayer is that you and your family are well and pursuing the heart of God. Last month I asked you specifically to pray and join your faith with mine for my trip to Europe (which included ministry in the nations of Romania, Ukraine, Moldova, and England). I want to report that God poured out His Spirit in a beautiful way. The word of the Lord was released for nations, regions and churches. Many reported experiencing healings and miracles and hundreds encountered the Holy Spirit in life-changing ways. In total, I ministered in 15 different sessions which included three all-day mini encounter schools. Thank you for your continued partnership with this ministry! Your partnership makes it possible for those moments to continually happen around the world.
Since the beginning of the year, the Holy Spirit has been emphasizing to me the necessity and power of building our lives on the appropriate foundation. In my previous letters to you this year (and through our sermon of the month audio teachings), I have shared with you some of the characteristics that enable us to build on the correct foundation. Our ability to walk out God's purpose in this season is divinely connected to building on the correct foundation.
This month I want to share with you the absolute necessity of learning to hear and follow the voice of God. Without the voice of God, a correct foundation in God does not exist. The first voice that Adam ever heard was the voice of God; it was the voice of God that gave him understanding of His purpose and qualified Him for the assignment of ruling the earth. Adam, and therefore humanity, was created to hear and be educated by that voice and to place his confidence and absolute trust in God's voice (Genesis 1:28). The earth forever shifted when Adam and Eve listened and obeyed the wrong voice. The same reality exists today. The most predominant voice we listen to is the one that is defining our lifestyle. God's intention is still that we would live and be governed by His voice. Jesus declared, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God." (Matthew 4:4) Notice that Jesus likened the word of God to eating bread. Humanity can only go about three to four days without water and about twenty-one days without eating food. The word of God for the believer is as necessary as food and water for us to function as God intended. While it is a multi-faceted discussion that is much larger than one letter, I want to offer some simple keys to position our hearts to hear the voice of God. The positioning of our hearts determines if we will accurately hear the voice of God.
Make a quality decision that you will obey what God speaks to you (I have found that this decision must be made daily).
Make a quality decision that God's word (scripture) will be the final authority in your life).
Confess daily that as a believer you hear the voice of God and you delight in His voice (John 10:27, Psalm 1:2).
Be intentional to read and mediate on scripture (Joshua 1:8, 2 Timothy 3:16-17).
Be part of a local body in which the five-fold teaches and preaches the word of God (Ephesians 4:11-14).
As you begin to hear, obey quickly (John 2:5).
Perhaps you are one who has heard and obeyed the voice of God for many years or you have just begun the journey of learning to hear the voice of God, but I believe that as you apply these foundational truths, you will hear the voice of God and grow in understanding and wisdom. We are indeed in a season of unprecedented wisdom and understanding in the earth. The Godhead is releasing to His people unprecedented wisdom and understanding in this season. May the voice of God and the wisdom of God define every part of your life in this season!
Thank you once again for your partnership with this ministry. Together we are making a difference! In addition to sending your testimonies, please also send us your prayer requests so we may stand with you in faith and believe with you for God's word to be manifested in your and your family's life.
My prayer is that this email finds you living from the peace of God and that your faith in God remains steadfast. As this email is being published, I am traveling to the continent of Europe once again. This trip will include ministry in the nations of Romania, Moldova, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom, and will be particularly intense with lots of travel and several one-day mini-encounter schools. I am asking you to agree with us that:
My prayer is that this letter finds you well and alive to the purposes of God for your life. In my previous letters to you this year, I have focused on values that help to build our life on the appropriate foundation. As we build on a sure foundation, the foundation we build enables us to sustain the assignment and purpose God has placed upon every believer.
In chapter seven of the Gospel of Matthew (Matthew 7:24-29), Jesus describes two types of people that are building -- the wise man and the foolish man. While both are building, only one is building correctly. Jesus describes the wise man as one who not only hears but also does. It is in hearing and doing the word of God that becomes pivotal to building a heavenly foundation in our life.
One of the things I have learned is that often God will speak to us about things to come far beyond the season and circumstance in which we are currently stationed (John 16:13). For example, I have shared the story from my own life many times that over 23 years ago God revealed to me the call of God to preach the gospel and to go as a sent one to the nations of the earth. The promise was given many years before it began to manifest. God delights in anchoring us in promise while also giving us grace to steward the current day. It is our ability to steward the day in which we live that will determine if we receive the promise that God has released to us for the coming season. This is the recurring theme in the life of many biblical characters who changed the course of history in scripture: Abraham, Joseph, David, Simeon, Jesus. As we seek to build our lives on the foundation God intends, it is a vitally important truth to recognize that we must correctly navigate the current season to enter into the promise of the next season. The following are truths and reflective questions I have as I seek to build my life with the appropriate foundation and navigate the seasons of life correctly.
My hope and prayer are that this letter finds you filled with the knowledge of His will and walking by faith and not by sight. In the previous months, I have written to you concerning the necessity of having our life foundation in Christ built correctly. I emphasized in those letters the necessity of living with an understanding that God is our source and the one who empowers us to love Him with all our heart. It's from receiving God's love on a daily basis that we can be empowered to love Him in the manner He intended. What the Holy Spirit is doing in the earth is unprecedented and having our foundation built correctly is essential if we are to live out His eternal purposes for our lives.
In future months, I hope to continue to explore necessary aspects of our spiritual foundation. However, this month as I leaned into God's heart of what to share with you, I believe He gave me a specific prophetic word to share with you:
"A crucial window is opening for My people in the coming season. It is a window that is opening for My people if they will position themselves correctly. They will receive wisdom as never before, understanding as never before, and the manifestation of promises given long ago. This is a season for receiving understanding to bring the manifestation of promises given long ago. It is a Joshua Chapter One season for many. I have released promises to My people and have given corresponding faith and grace to receive these promises, and it is now critical for My children to seek Me with all their heart soul and mind to hear wisdom, revelation and understanding as it relates to these promises. Do not grow weary in well doing, do not grow faint, and do not give up. Seek Me and the words will come that will give you understanding on how to position yourself. Understand and know that this is a season of unprecedented birthing and advancement in the Kingdom of God. This is a season of the manifestation of promises and desires fulfilled. This is a season of divine advancement, this is a season of overcoming, this is a season of great joy and hope in the house of God."
My prayer is that this word would bring you encouragement and hope in this crucial and wonderful season in the Body of Christ. Thank you once again for standing with this ministry as the backbone for the assignment God has placed on my life. Please be sure to join us later this month at Prophetic Clinic May 17 - 18 at Cornerstone Church in Raleigh, North Carolina. Prophetess Ruth Mangiacapre will be our special guest and Rob Cole will be leading us in worship.
