2020 Deep Dive Year Prophecy
Maranatha Vision Project
For the last two years, the Holy Spirit has guided me to ask for a prophetic word of knowledge about the next year of my life; to give each year a name. 2018 was the year of Restoration, and 2019 has been the year of the Wild Frontier. Our Lord Jesus told me back in November that all year, God’s people will receive new dreams of heavenly things, and in these dreams we will discover ancient truths & pathways, and through these truths we will discern next steps for fulfilling our destinies.
This summer I began asking for a name for the year 2020. The obvious name is “Clear Vision,” since 2020 is associated in ophthalmology with perfect eyes that do not require vision correction. As I listened more intently, I heard the Holy Spirit say, “The name of the year 2020 is Deep Dive.” As I listened to our Good Shepherd’s voice, I received three revelation keys to understanding this name > 1) Wonder, 2) Worship, & 3) Wisdom.
In 2020, our Heavenly Father has anointed this year with a Wonder Awakening. So many people are dazed & sleepwalking, mesmerized by technology and digital entertainment, wandering in the wilderness of a global society increasingly hostile to the ways & wisdom of Jesus Christ. Our Father wants to awaken us, to deliver us out of our slumber, our hypnotism on Pinocchio’s Pleasure Island, our covenant with the Lost Boys of Neverland.
As Jesus’ Church recaptures her calling to wonder at the awesome nature of our Creator & his creation, our response will be a Worship Mission. We will walk with the Holy Spirit and practice God’s presence intentionally throughout our daily routines. We will be filled to overflowing with his love and spiritual fruit & gifts, keeping our eyes focused upon Jesus: our Faith Author & Cultivator, our Soul Shepherd & Overseer, our Eternal Life King.
This worship mission will produce a Wisdom Culture. The true wisdom of heaven is not correct doctrine or intricate theology. Wisdom is the person of Jesus Christ; he is Heaven’s Wisdom. The greatest practical wisdom available to humanity is to nurture day & night all our days a growing, deepening relationship with our Friend, Jesus Messiah.
Deep Dive Keys > I searched the Scriptures for three passages to guide us +>>
Wonder > “Have you ever given orders to the morning, or shown the dawn its place, that it might take the earth by the edges and shake out the wicked? Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea or walked in the recesses of the deep? What is the way to the abode of light; where does darkness reside? Have you entered the storehouses of snow or seen where hail prepares for days of war and battle? Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain and a path for the thunderstorm? Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons? Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you set up God’s dominion over the earth?” (Job 38 NIV, selections)
Worship > Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvelous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifices. And live in holiness, experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship. 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 will as you fulfill your destiny, living a beautiful life that is satisfying and perfect in his eyes. (Romans 12:1-2 TPT)
Wisdom > Dear brothers and sisters, even when I first came to you I didn’t use lofty words and brilliant ideas to tell you God’s message. For I decided that I would speak only of Jesus Christ and his death on the cross. I came to you in weakness – timid and trembling. The Holy Spirit’s power was in my words proving that the message was from God. I lead you this way because I want your faith to stand firmly upon God, not on man’s great ideas. Here is the source of our confidence of faith in God’s revelations: God has sent his Spirit to tell us, and his Spirit searches out and shows us all of God’s deepest secrets. He has actually given us his Spirit, which is completely incompatible with the world’s spirit, to tell us about the wonderful free gifts of grace and blessing God has given to us. Anyone who does not follow Jesus cannot understand or accept thoughts from God, because only a reborn spirit can understand spiritual truths revealed from heaven by the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 2 TLB, selections)
Maranatha Prayer > Heavenly Father, may all the peoples and every tribe worship your name in Spirit & Truth, let every nation praise the Lamb of God who was slain for the sins of the world. Lord Jesus, you are the Radiance of God’s Glory, the visible expression of hidden realities. Thank you for sustaining us with your divine power and sovereign will. Our generation needs refining & fine tuning, we need a recalibration, a realignment to your design, for we are beautifully made in your image and wired to worship. Yet, we are prone so quickly to wander away and lose ourselves in the latest craze of our dark days.
Lord Jesus, we thirst for you. We are deer panting for pure streams, we are sheep searching for carefree & nourishing pastures. The Living Water and Safe Sanctuary we desire & seek is always freely available in your presence. So, let your glory rain down, Overflowing Blessings Fountain. Open the floodgates of heaven, and draw our generation deeper into your righteous wisdom mysteries than ever before in Jesus’ name we pray, Amen. Maranatha!
