Prophetic Word For 2020s: This Is a Decade of Abraham Prophets and Intercessors

God is weary of the doom and gloom prophets. We’re seeing a tipping point in heaven as a response to the Jonah prophets: Abraham prophets and intercessors.

Consider 2020 in the context of the Law of First Mention, a hermeneutical method stating the way a word is first used in the Bible will be the way this word is largely understood thereafter. The first time the number 20 is found in the Bible, it’s connected to intercession and a plea for mercy over judgment. In Genesis 18:16-26 we overhear a conversation in heaven:

“Then the men rose from there and looked toward Sodom, and Abraham went with them to send them on the way. And the Lord said, ‘Should I hide from Abraham what I am doing, since Abraham will surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth will be blessed in him? I chose him, and he will instruct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He promised him.’

“And the Lord said, ‘Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has come to Me. If not, I will know.’

“Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before the Lord. Then Abraham drew near and said, ‘Shall You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? What if there are fifty righteous in the city? Shall You also destroy, and not spare the place, for the fifty righteous who are in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be treated like the wicked; far be it from You. Should not the Judge of all the earth do right?'”

Although God is a God of judgment, Hosea understood that He is also a God of mercy. This why he cried out: “O Lord, I have heard the report of You, and was afraid; O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of these years make them known; in wrath remember mercy” (Hab. 3:2). Let’s all remember, mercy triumphs over judgment (see James 2:13). {eoa}
