In a Year of Great Shaking, Here’s How You Can Navigate in Faith

Posted by


The year 2022 will see the Christ King rise in Revelation glory in and through His saints. It will be an Isaiah 61 year as the harvest breaks free from its imprisonment to blindness, and the year of the favor of the Lord breaks the saints free into the fullness of their call and destiny. The world is about to experience what it means for the Lord to arise from His place to confuse and scatter His enemies.

The year 2022 will be the beginning of a time of explosive movement, both in the spirit and in the natural, as kingdoms clash over the dominion of the earth. These are days the saints have longed for as we will see the power of God move in the miraculous through His people but also stir the wrath of the hosts of wickedness, producing great turbulence in the earth.

The saints living today are the generation—a forerunner party that tracks with Christ in the days moving forward. We are being invited to embrace the transcendent call on this generation of leaders to apprehend its scope through the prism of the apostolic/prophetic dynamic of this significant epoch of history. The Lord has put on my heart certain keys that must be in operation in our lives to be able to navigate our way through 2022, as so many prophetic voices are in unison that it will be a year of great shaking. So, what does that shaking mean and what does that look like?

Great Shaking

In the years ahead, we will be experiencing the effects of shaking in both the spiritual and the natural realms. The powers of the heavens are being shaken, producing turmoil, violence and great unrest in the earth. In the natural, the shaking will cause storms, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, drought and famine. Shaking will also cause an earthquake in the leadership of all spheres—a changing of the guard in the political, economic and religious realms.

Now is the time to be found in the place where God is positioning you. There are very volatile regions in the United States and other nations where people should prayerfully seek the Lord if they should be moving to safer places of refuge. It is vital to world security that America stand strong and not succumb to the tyranny of global powers. The Democratic Party has seized the opportunity in this time of emergency powers to surrender America to global actors under the guise of equity. They will not surrender the House, the Senate or the presidency and will do whatever it takes to keep power, no matter how diabolical. We would be wise to be prepared and equipped for any sudden events, trusting in the Lord to guide us and holding fast to His Word.

“Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD. Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes” (Ps. 112:6-8, NIV).

Repentance and Humility Versus Eating and Drinking

Isaiah 22 provides us with prophetic insight for 2022. In this chapter, we see that God was very angry with Israel and was about to release sweeping judgments over the land. Neither the leaders nor the people understood or discerned the times and what was about to come upon them. God was calling for national repentance for abandoning His ways and His Word, but they refused to hear or understand. As in the days of Noah, they were eating and drinking without any concern for their destiny or for eternity.

“The Lord, the Lord Almighty, called you on that day to weep and to wail, to tear out your hair and put on sackcloth. But see, there is joy and revelry, slaughtering of cattle and killing of sheep, eating of meat and drinking of wine! ‘Let us eat and drink,’ you say, ‘for tomorrow we die!'” (Isa. 22:12-13).

The issue of eating and drinking is highlighted many times in Scripture, directly relating to an attitude of heart that is primarily concerned with satisfying the things of the flesh as opposed to the things of the Spirit and having eternal value. Paul quotes this very Scripture in addressing the realities of eternal life and resurrection as reasoning for endurance and perseverance through times of much persecution.

“If I fought wild beasts in Ephesus with no more than human hopes, what have I gained? If the dead are not raised, ‘Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die'” (1 Cor. 15:32).

Jesus also spoke into the complaint of the Pharisees over the issue of eating and drinking:

“They said to Him, ‘John’s disciples often fast and pray, and so do the disciples of the Pharisees, but yours go on eating and drinking'” (Luke 5:33).

Jesus’ answer pointed them to the understanding of the time and season of things, revealing to them that the time would come after He left that they would fast and pray. If ever there were a time to fast and to pray…this would be it! In another instance, Jesus linked this attitude of carnal living to the times surrounding His appearing. Rather than a time of humility, unity in their stance, the people chose division and reveling, He said:

“People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all. It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building” (Luke 17:27-28).

The Word of God says that there is a time and a season for every purpose under heaven. It is vital for the people of God who serve Him and His purposes to understand the season and dynamic of the times to which He calls us; otherwise, we will be caught out of sync with the Lord’s purposes. This is a time for intentional and single-minded focus in service to God, where we bind our hearts and minds to His and travail with Him to see His will come upon the earth.
