"First I Got Mad.
Then Sad. Then Challenged."
You don’t know me.
But I have developed a spiritual gift I know you prize.
I now know how to hear the voice of the LORD clearly.
Today I can tell when God is the One speaking and when He is not the one speaking.
All thanks to an email you sent out about 3 years ago. That email got me mad for days because in it you made this provocative statement:
‘If doctors knew as little about medicine as today’s prophets know about God, half the population would die every year.’
First, I got angry. Then sad. After many days I pulled out that email. I read it again. It challenged me.
I made up my mind to join every program on the site and pray every prayer. I needed to prove you wrong.
But instead I got a surprise. Some of these prayers are downright dangerous.
Like the ones we prayed during the last Platinum Edition.
Around Week 3 I got the shocking revelation my spouse had been cheating on me.
I didn't want to believe it until I confronted him and he broke down and confessed all.
This had been going on for 4 years - behind my back!
Today I’ve become my own personal prophet, as you like to put it.
Glory to God for using that simple message to wake me up from spiritual slumber”… Prophetic Eagle Zee
Praise the LORD.
I remember that email very well.
It ruffled a few feathers out there.
But it was right on target.
I make no apologies for it.
That message is even more relevant today as we step into the New Year.
The Mad Prophets
Are Out of The Cage
The word for this year is very simple.
Short. Sweet. Straight to the point.
Before we begin please close your eyes and take these 3 prayers with a holy shout:
- Evil voices speaking into the affairs of my life, be silenced forever by the power in the blood of Jesus.
- Powers summoning my name for evil, answer your own summons by fire in the name of Jesus.
- Every embodiment of demons and ancestral powers attacking me and seeking to renew bondage in my life, collide with the Rock of Ages in the name of Jesus
(Please give this last prayer 5 mins everyday throughout the period of this program).
Now we’re ready.
This year 2020 marks the beginning of a brand-new decade.
I call it the “Decade of Mad Prophets.”
Before I explain what that means…
… let’s first go to our classic message at the gates of the New Year (for the benefit of those who are here for the first time).
* Classic Message at The Gates Begins *
There are 3 key principles that you need to arm yourself with.
Here's the VERY first one.
You need to apply it diligently at the "gate" i.e. midnight as Dec 31, 2019 transitions into Jan 1, 2020.
(The rest I will continue to share step by step in the Members Forum which opens shortly).
If you're ready, let's go...
Why We Pray
At The Gates of The New Year
We'll open this section with a short prayer.
Please just close your eyes where you are now and fire this singular prayer bullet with fire in your spirit:
"O LORD, open my spiritual understanding today in the name of Jesus. Amen."
Let's start off by looking at the popular story of the ten virgins.
In Matthew 25:1-10 we read:
"Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
They that were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut."
This is a familiar story.
Two phrases are of particular interest to us here:
(i) At midnight there was a cry made...
(ii) The door was shut...
We pull out the first 2 keys from the verses above.
Here is Key #1
Midnight is the time when "doors" are spiritually shut against people in the realm of the spirit.
Then Key #2
It is also a time when satanic cries are made against people by the evil powers operating along the bloodlines of their families.
Please hold these thoughts while we back up to Psalm 24:7-10:
"Lift up your head, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory."
Again we see the word "doors" but this time, at the appearance of an Almighty, Sovereign Power...
... Instead of being shut, the door (and gates) are being commanded to "lift up" i.e. to open immediately.
Putting what we've read so far together, we arrive at the inescapable conclusion that doors can be opened and shut in the spiritual realm.
These "doors" might be invisible to the carnal eye.
They are spiritual realities all the same.
In many places in the Bible, we see references to doors and gates.
For instance, we find them at:
- the entry point to cities (1 Kings 17)
- temples (Acts 3)
- prisons (Acts 12)
- palaces (Esther 5)
At the gates of the city, important decisions, judgments and verdicts were handed down.
Controversies were settled there.
Deals were cut and transactions sealed at the gate.
Honor was bestowed at the gate.
Blessings were pronounced at the gate...
And curses were issued as punishment for offenses at the gate.
Matter of fact, the gate played such a pivotal role in the life of every community that in times of war...
... the enemy's first order of business was to seize control of the gate!
What's this got to do with the New Year?
You can liken the New Year to a well-fortified city with a strong gate.
The gate is the entry point into the city.
Please Listen Carefully...
For the purpose of this conversation...
The door or gate of the New Year is currently shut.
It is supposed to swing open IN THE SPIRIT at 12 midnight on January 1st.
Notice that I used the word, 'supposed' ... that is what should happen in an ideal situation.
The reality, however, is that for most people, the gate of the New Year never truly opens to them spiritually...
... it remains tightly shut against them year after year, often without their knowledge!
Why is this so?
The Bible reveals that there are invisible "horsemen setting themselves in array at the gate" (Isaiah 22:7).
And here's the SECRET revealed:
The entrance or gate to the New Year is the midnight hour between December 31 and January 1st.
The truth remains that this gate is the theater of the hottest spiritual battle you can think of.
Whoever takes control of that gate in the crucial first few seconds of the New Year determines what happens throughout the entire year!
What I'm sharing with you is well-understood by the children of darkness.
No wonder our Lord Jesus once said:
... for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light - Luke 16:8b
At the critical midnight hour between December 31st and January 1st the children of this world (darkness) ...
... that the Lord Jesus is referring to here will be busy taking off in their evil hovercraft and making evil prophetic pronouncements to...
- renew ancient, generational bondage in the lives of their victims
- capture the entire year spiritually (thereby shutting the gates of the next 12 months against unsuspecting people).
At this exact same time, modern-day believers will be dancing and partying the night away!
Unknown to them --
At this critical hour of midnight when the new year is being "delivered" (think of a woman in labor)...
... whatever decrees are issued (good or bad) have the capacity to alter the destiny of an individual, family, church or nation.
Let's bring this closer to home...
This May Hurt…
You remember ...
How many prophecies of greatness and prosperity that Christians (including you) usually receive at the beginning of every year?
How many of them ever come to pass?
You know why?
At the most critical first few seconds of the New Year, the enemy gets busy "shutting the gate" and cancelling those prophecies ...
... by issuing wicked, ungodly decrees against people, using words anointed with satanic power!
- Doors of opportunity remained tightly shut throughout the year.
- The heavens refused to open and pour out the expected blessings in abundance.
- Divine benefits refused to manifest
- Divine helpers? Nowhere to be found
- Most prayers went unanswered... leaving so many scratching their heads.
If you keep records of all the wonderful prophecies received every New Year (like I do) you'll realize that most of them NEVER see the light of day.
It doesn't matter how many great men or women of God prophesied.
Because Christians allow the enemy (either out of ignorance or sheer laziness) to take control of the GATES when it mattered most...
At the critical moment of transition...
... when most people are in slumber or dancing the night away.
You see, in the spiritual realm, just one second's delay can cost you an entire year.
Like the prayer bullets you see shortly, if you were to pray them at any other time of the year, you won't achieve the same results.
[except in very few cases as we will discuss at various times during the year in the Members' Forum].
Thankfully, the Lord has not left us ignorant about this matter.
The Big Reveal
15 years ago, He gave us the battle plan which has never failed.
Those who meet us at the gates are the very ones sharing tens of thousands of testimonies on our websites year in year out.
If we execute on this plan diligently...
These 90 minutes AT THE GATE of 2020 could save you 9 months/years of frustration, disappointment and sorrow.
* End of Classic Message at The Gates *
This year there's a lot more at stake.
It is the beginning of a new decade.
Welcome to The Decade of Mad Prophets
We are about to see more manifestations of what we read in 2 Timothy 3:1-8.
Because the enemy is releasing a fresh horde of Jannes and Jambres to oppose the move of God at every turn.
(According to tradition Jannes and Jambres were the magicians in Pharaoh's court who withstood and reproduced the miracles of Moses and Aaron in Exodus 7 - One New Man Bible)
They are already hard at work as you read this (unlike believers who think it is OK to be lukewarm because we’re living in a period of grace).
That’s the reason the mad prophets are being unleashed.
(Hint: there’s always a vacancy for mad prophets).
At the instigation of these mad prophetic warriors, there’s soon going to be a major clash of civilizations.
In his days he did the unthinkable… in order to draw out and disgrace the enemies of God.
Another spectacular contest is in the making as I write this.
You can be part of it (I mean, the LORD could reveal this to you way ahead of schedule, as He’s already done to thousands of others).
Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. – Amos 3:7
It all begins when you plug yourself into the prophetic flow just like the writer of the email at the top of this page.
In the battles of life, you will have access to the choicest weapons of offense … plus the super-weapon of defense from the divine armory.
If you’re satisfied to remain as one of those second-hand Christians ...
... who wait for others to prophesy and see ‘visions’ for them, you will fall into a lot of deception and grief in the days ahead.
Please understand that does not have to be your portion.
The heartbeat of God this moment is for you to:
Strive to move close enough to Him so He can share divine secrets with you...
... and give you confidential, divine directions to advance His kingdom.
Here’s a great example of how that works from the book of Acts:
Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias; and to him the Lord said in a vision, “Ananias.”
And he said, “Here I am, Lord.”
So the Lord said to him, “Arise and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, for behold, he is praying. And in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and putting his hand on him, so that he might receive his sight.”
Then Ananias answered, “Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much harm he has done to Your saints in Jerusalem. And here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call on Your name.”
But the Lord said to him, “Go, for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel. For I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name’s sake.”
And Ananias went his way and entered the house; and laying his hands on him he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord [d]Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” Immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he received his sight at once; and he arose and was baptized.
-- Acts 9:10-18
Today, many will say, quite rightly, this man was Paul’s father in the Lord.
They would refer to him by many grandiose titles.
Yet, after this one incident in the Bible, this man is never mentioned again.
There were thousands of believers just like him in every city everywhere.
The LORD could tap any of them on the shoulder at anytime and send them to deliver very important messages.
After that you would never hear of them again… unless the LORD had another assignment for them.
By the way, the dictionary definition ...
... of a prophet is a person who speaks for God or a deity, or by divine inspiration.
The LORD is searching for you today.
Will you stand up to be counted?
How To Pray Into Year 2020
Here's the order of events:
Level 0 - Storming the Gate of 2020 (public event for all)
Level 1 - 2020 Prayer Academy (New members - access required)
Level 2 - Sapphire 2020 Edition (PA Graduates - access required)
Be An Overcomer
With This Year's Prayers
As we approach the start of the program on December 30, 2019...
... there are 2 simple, but VERY crucial, steps you must take, if you really want to see the finger of God manifest speedily on your behalf:
Simple Step #1: Make Doubly Sure JESUS Is In the Driver's Seat of Your Boat
"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us..." - Titus 3:5
No matter how far you may have strayed from the LORD this year, He wants you back NOW.
He is able and willing to forgive your sins, cleanse you and give you a fresh new start in 2020... if only you'd go on your knees and cry out for His mercy NOW.
YES, it is up to you to open the door of your heart for Him to come in and do a work of transformation in your life right now.
Please take a moment to do this, if you need to ... before you even think of going further.
Simple Step #2: All Secret Sins Must Go (And I Do Mean ALL)
Please realize that God sees your heart even now as you read this. He knows what you do in secret. Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins, mine and that of the whole world.
Of course, this might sound like foolishness to the people of the world (in the secular world I meet "sophisticated" people all the time who say so).
But you know the Bible says:
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. - 1 Cor.1:18
Since you have read up to this point, I believe you are NOT one of those who are perishing.
So, let me congratulate you for that!
About our Lord Jesus Christ, we are assured this:
Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree - 1 Peter 2:24
Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood - Rev. 1:5
If you are new to this kind of teaching...
I must alert you that if you follow these 2 simple steps above with all sincerity ...
... before even firing the opening shots, you may not be able to handle the flood of peace and joy that will invade your heart ...
... not to mention the testimonies that are sure to follow.
(We record tens of thousands of testimonies every year to the glory of God)
Last year by this time I challenged those who went through these simple steps diligently to get ready for an overflow of breakthroughs in their lives.
They were NOT disappointed.
Before we got to DAY 3 of the program, our testimony inbox was filling up so fast ...
... we had to redirect people to go to the Forum to post their testimonies under the COMMENT section with their own hands!
Praise the LORD who delights in answering the prayers of His people.

The Proper Way to Break a Fast
(Suggestion only - not medical advice!)
You should not eat heavy meals at least 2 days before a long fast.
Rather you should take MORE fruits and drink a lot of water.
When you break your fast, you should never break with solid food.
You must break slowly. DO not take any cold water or drinks.
Warm water is preferable. Eat fruits such as oranges, pineapples, etc. for a while ...
... and drink a lot of water before attempting to eat any solid food.
When you have been on a long fast, you will need some days to slowly break.
For instance, if you fasted for 7 days, you'll need another 3 days to slowly break
- meaning in the following 3 days you should be on a diet of fruits and water, before introducing any heavy food.
This is because the end of a long fast is the most delicate time of a fast.
For those who did not conquer their appetite during the fast, there is a danger that they might overeat right after the fast, thereby causing severe problems for themselves.
In the event of that happening, quickly stop eating and begin another fast without food and water for at least 2 days and you should be alright.
Let me repeat this:
Please NOTE that this is not a medical prescription.
Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking any action that could affect your health.
What I have just said here should NOT be taken as medical advice.
Now to the prayers...
All the prayers should be prayed AT THE MIDNIGHT HOUR.
You should also find time during the day to continue with the prayers.
If, however, because of your work schedule, you are not able to pray at the midnight hour...
... then you should pray VERY early in the morning before 6:00 AM.
No excuses please.
If you do this diligently, you will surely experience the visitation of the LORD, the One who ordained this program.
For reasons of space and time, we can only pray a tiny fraction of these prayers here.
But right after the 14-day prayers at the gate of 2020, we will continue (without any break) with the follow-up programs I've mentioned already.
Please NOTE the following:
