2017 Prophetic Word for the Church

2017 Prophetic Word for the Church


The Lord put this word in my on December 16, 2016, for the Body of Christ for this year 2017. My Pastor read this Word and said He was amazed by how in sync this was with what the Holy Spirit was apparently showing at the same time as well. We even both got the same phrase and image of a runner. We were both stunned! Praise God for Holy Spirit confirmation.

I encourage you to ask the holy Spirit to show you which part of this word is for you, if any. To see a list of all the scriptures the Lord gave to go with this word please see them at the very bottom.

2017 The Season of “Go.”

“On your mark, get set, Go!”

I believe that some of you may have been praying and asking God for the “when” to step out or “GO” in your life. You know the “what to do, ” it’s just the “when to GO” you’re waiting on God for.

I believe there may even be a few of you who have been waiting for years to step out and “GO” in a big way. You have been doing ministry work, you have been faithful where you are, allowing God to train you, but you know that God has called you to “GO” to something bigger and you are wondering will this come to pass? “Is it time to GO yet,” is the cry in your heart.

I see a vision of some of you as runners at the starting line of a race (like in the Olympics) and you are bent down poised and literally in the starting position just waiting on the gun to go off, which is in matter of seconds.”READY…SET…”

Then I believe the Lord is showing me there are some of you who are asking God for the “WHAT.” You need direction in what to “GO” into or where to “GO” to in this NEW season that will be here in a few weeks. I believe as you are seeking Him especially now that He will show you and I want to encourage you to really press in for that, consider fasting.

I believe God is about to launch many people who have been behind the scenes, “in hiding,” so to speak (in pits, getting trained, praying at all hours in the wee hours of the night and no one really knows what you are doing but God does).

I believe that there is a group of warriors and people that God has indeed been training for years, some ten years or more, some a bit less, but it has been more than just a few months, it has been years. You have been letting God mold you. You have been the clay on the Potter’s wheel and it has felt like it.

You have walked through the fiery furnace and miraculously come out on the other side and don’t smell of smoke! Sure, you may “feel” like you wreak of smoke, but the truth is you don’t. When others look at you, they keep remarking on your faith and they see Christ in you. Sound familiar? Listen for your “GO.”

There are a remnant of people that are being called in this very hour, for this very season that is almost upon us, that are going to be raised up to “GO” and take your place on the front lines.

There is indeed a “changing of the guards” that is about to take place and is even in motion right now. It is happening not only in the larger platforms in the world and the USA but also in the churches, in businesses, in places of power and influence. There are major shifts that are taking place, even now, in the spirit realm and we are and will continue to see it in the natural. This includes the Body of Christ!

There are people that God has been training. They have been in boot camp, trained to be faithful to Him no matter what. People who know who they are and Who’s they are because they have spent time in the secret place with the Lord and His Word. Even when they thought they were going to die, they did not and will not turn away from God. The Lord has invested much time in you. You are about to get called into your “GO.”

There are sons and daughters of the Living God who are not afraid to stand up and take their place “GO” and take the land that He has promised you and given to you.

There are those who are chomping at the bit and ready and willing, you are waiting to be released to step into your calling. God is about to pull the trigger to “GO!”

Remember the image, the Holy Spirit gave me for you, a runner bent down at the starting line, about to sprint. When a runner is in that position it means he/she is ready. He/she is no longer stretching. He/she is no longer doing warm up laps, he/she is no longer standing straight about to take the position, no, he/she is in the position, bent down, Ready…Set…within seconds that gun is going to go off and he/she will “GO!”

We have been in part, for many, in a season this year of “on your mark, get set and….” we have been waiting for the “GO!” it did not come because many of us were not yet ready.

But where I believe the Holy Spirit of God has shown me we are right now is about to enter into that season of “GO!” There is a distinguishing shift that is taking place, it is more intense, it is more charged, there is more anointing and more authority that I believe is going to be released on the Body of Christ for such a time as this. The Lion of Judah, Jesus Christ is about to roar upon and through many. The Lord is about to say “GO!”

Those who the Lord has called as warriors are being suited up and have their armor on and they are about to “GO” and be released in to the spirit to war more intensely than ever before. The angels of the Lord are already warring on our behalf and we are about to really join them in a way that we have not experienced before. I believe those who are called to war will go to war.

Some of this war will not look as you may think as it will come from the Father’s heart of Love! They will know us by our love. His Love never fails! The Lord is the LION and the LAMB. We must discern which is to come forth at any given time.

Those who are called to preach and teach will have a NEW level of open doors to them to “GO”, as well as, blockades that will have to be overcome, prayed into, or to “GO” over, around or through.

This is a big year of strategies being sought and released on both sides. The Body of Christ will need to be on top of strategies from God and listening to prophets, the prophetic streams and the five-fold ministry needs to come forth more.

Those who are called to prophesy will “GO” and do so more and more, where they can, even on the streets, one on one, or online, through writing, songs etc God needs His Word to get out. Please be obedient and “GO” when the Lord calls you to do so. You only learn by stepping out.

Those who are called or led by the Holy Spirit to “GO” into healing ministries, miracles, to encourage, evangelists, laid down lovers, helps, will and need to “GO.”

Those who are blessed to give need to give in obedience if led by the Holy Spirit, whether it be your time, smile, laughter, words, prayers, money, prayer etc. Now is the time of salvation, today. We are at TODAY. Listen for your “GO.”

Don’t listen to the lie that if you are not some famous evangelist or “big name” you don’t make a difference, don’t compare yourself with others. The only name that matters is JESUS! That is a trap of the enemy. You run your race. Every part matters. God needs very one of us. What one can do, another cannot. We each need to “GO” and do our part that God has called us too.

We need each other and need to be in unity like never before. There can be no more petty distractions, jealousies, competition, malice, unforgiveness, gossip, bad seeds etc. It is time we turn away from those things, away from foolish arguments and “GO” to unity in CHRIST JESUS.

Does this resonate with you? I believe the Holy Spirit will show what part pertains to you if any to encourage you for this upcoming SHIFT into 2017.

God bless each one of you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Always in His Love and Grace, walking With you, your sis Sybella Owens

Mark 3:25 If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

2 Timothy 2:23 Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels

Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.

2 Timothy 2:14-17 Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness, and their talk will spread like gangrene.

Ephesians 4:16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

Romans 12:4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function…

Ephesians 4:31-32 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

1 Corinthians 12:12-20,26-27 But now there are many members, but one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; or again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” … But God has so composed the body, giving more abundant honor to that member which lacked, so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are Christ’s body, and individually members of it.

Ephesians 4:11-13 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

Colossians 3:13-14 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Acts 5:20 “Go, stand and speak to the people in the temple the whole message of this Life.”

John 13:35 “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

John 1:5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

    The Lord has impressed upon me to start fasting beginning this new year. Will continue to pray for healing and unity in the family. The time is now for the Lord’s work to be first and act on the word “GO”.

  8. Marie The're'se

    It is time to step out with confidence, in the anointing of the Lord. The trumpet sound is getting louder as the church is in position. Yes, unity is key. To support one another with the love of the Lord and press on is prevalent. The Lord continues to speak through you to bring HIS timely word forth. I thank you for your obedience. May the Lord bless you with His abundant divine anointing, authority, protection, favor and health as you “GO.” Love you sis!

  13. Rita

    Very powerful, encouraging and true, dear friend, I feel its truth and there is an urgency at this time. So blessed to read at the eve of the New Year!

  14. Sybella | Sybella's Blessing Shop

    Hi my dear sister Rita! Thank you for coming by and reading this. I’m so glad you witness to it by the Holy Spirit. My Pastor said last night after reading it that the Lord gave Him the exact same message and that it was scary how in sync we were in the Holy Spirit LOL in a good way! He is having me make copies for the church Sunday. God is so good! He is always trying to communicate with us, teach us, help encourage us, spur us on. He is doing a new thing this upcoming year and people can get excited but yes, as you mentioned, there is also a great urgency for the sons and daughters of the Living God to now “Go!”

    Thanks again for reading and sharing my sister! God bless you and Happy New Year! Glory to God!

    I love this for so many reasons. And let me quote what my pastor in Maine posted on 12/31, ” moving forward without looking back. Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward for the things that God has in store for us. Forget the past failure. Forget the past pain or past pleasure. Forget the past disappointments and the past excitements. You continue the list. You cannot keep looking back because that is not the direction that you are heading. With Jesus, the best is still ahead of you!”
    I’m ready for the starting pistol.

  16. Amen Anne! “Yes! Yes! Yes!…” is ringing in my spirit as I read what your Pastor in Maine wrote as well! I also love your “I’m ready for the starting pistol.” Yes, Lord! Thank you so much for reading and sharing my sister! I am so excited for what God is doing and about to do! God bless you 🙂

    Your sis, Sybella

  17. Kathleen Nicosia

    God bless you always my dear sister. As I read over again guided by the HolySpirit I am certain of the REVIVAL so NEEDED in the BODY EVERYWHERE!

  18. Thank you so much my sister Kathleen! You are so right, revival is So needed! I really believe this year is going to be a year for the Body of Christ to GO! That GO can mean Go into sitting with the Lord to get more revelation of the mark you are to be on, or maybe it’s to “GO” into be made ready and prepared, it is also very much for people who already have been trained and are set and when the trigger is pulled by the Lord to “GO” and take action. I believe if people are seeking the Lord and being obedient to the Holy Spirit it will be a year where we are going to see many NEW things and actions as well.
    Thank you so much my dear sister, for taking the time to stop by, read and comment. I appreciate you! God bless you always, your sis, Sybella
