Can you believe it is the last few days of 2016? Get ready to cross over into a new season of your life in the exciting new year that is upon us.

Eyes to see

If you view things through your current understanding, then things will not make sense and might even look dismal. But if you put on the glasses of faith and trust that God has your best interest at heart, then it is going to be a great time!

Step back from the negativity you are hearing around you. God is still in charge!

Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s perfect plan for you, living a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.” Romans 12:2 The Passion Translation

2017 is going to bring not just a new season, but also a new era. God is now blowing on the dry bones of those who have felt forgotten by the Lord. He is beginning to awaken things in you that you might have forgotten about. God is resurrecting things you laid down in previous seasons and bringing new clarity to your calling.

Get ready for positive impact

The world is going to awaken to the awesome power of the Lord. There is a reason for all the turmoil and attacks. It is the enemy not wanting us to see what God is doing.

God is more powerful than Satan and some people have fallen into the trap of looking at the storms and not to the Lord’s solution. As darkness seems to increase around us, it is at this time that God uses these events and circumstances to draw people to Himself.

We are about to see various movements of God that will result in global harvest and revival. Do not be discouraged by how things look in the natural realm. God is moving in our lives right now to align and position us for some amazingly good things.

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3 NIV

You can trust that God is establishing you right now, and you will indeed make it through this time. Many people are going to come out of this time in an entirely new place, new level, new authority, new anointing and fire! Even though things are shaking, remember that God’s Kingdom cannot be shaken!

Happy New Year!

    Awesome Doug. Love your ministry. You put such a positive slant on things. Which is good because God’s positive and only does good things. Even though things are happening out there, He is at work to bring many out of darkness into Light!

    Doug I so appreciate you timely words. I lead prayer and healing ministries in a large church of 5000. The Pastor has asked me to help incorporate prophecy into our prayer meetings. A big challenge! I am 66, semi-retired but feel in the spirit like I am 22. Doug, I so appreciate your work, people like Sean Bolz and Bethel. When are you coming to Portland my friend? People here love you.

    Doug, I wish you the best in all that you do and may God bless you and use you for his Kingdom. I appreciate your encouraging words for the body of Christ. To be honest I have followed you since 2011 and have not seen any word that you have spoken come to pass in my life or the general body. I remember insights from the past about repayments, new assignments, jobs. financial breakthroughs, medical discoveries, clearing cases from the court of heaven and so forth. I know some will be angry with my post but I am a spirit filled Christian with no animosity toward anyone including you. I just have not seen for the past 6 years one general Prophetic message that has shown bearing on the church. I pray God will give you insight but so far as Nothing has been on a scale unto which you Prophesy . I am not against you. I think that many people that are desperate for the Lord look to you and when things never change it can cause a harmful effect of despair. I pray you are correct and pray for you. I am not trying to diminish your words I just don’t see any of your messages come to bear on the many that follow you. I hope I am wrong but so far it has not been shown to be accurate. I am sure by sheer numbers that someone will defy my words because they have experienced some break through, but once again I have not seen this as testimony on a large scale for the people I know that follow you. I hope you find this as not a slam against your ministry only an observation from a fellow Christian that wishes you the best, I do my best to seek God for myself and try to listen to his Prophets. In 6 years of following I see no difference in what your declaration’s are and what is suppose to have taken place or that is to be coming

      Hi Barry,

      We appreciate your comments. God often gives revelation to people that relate to their callings. Doug is a prophetic evangelist and has a heart and mission from God to reach the spiritual outcasts, which is why God gives Doug prophetic words to encourage and bring hope to people everywhere. Doug gets emails everyday of people who are hearing God through his prophetic words and receiving breakthrough, but it is not everyone yet. Doug’s heart cry to God that everyone that hears Doug’s messages will hear God more clearly, grow in their personal relationship with God, encounter the supernatural in their normal life, and discover their life purpose.

      God bless you,
      InLight Connection

  6. A NEW Day: Joy And Peace Will Be Restored

    Drops of salt tears melting
    the cold, wool covered trees
    Ice falling from leaves
    A long barren season ending

    On a quiet field, where honor lies
    His Spirit awakening the morning breeze
    A wondering gaze, a whispering’ recognize
    Bringing mind and heart’s at ease

    Past hidden noises, from the enemies lies
    As a soft captured prayer still cries
    A new day breaking forth, clearing sight
    Rays of vision, like little diamonds reflecting light

    Refreshed, revived from ancient sleep
    Your loving kindness, treasures running deep
    His gentle touch, birthing dreams by surprise
    Serene Wisdom seen in His beautiful eyes
