The biblical month of Tevet aligns with the start of the new year on the Gregorian calendar (Dec. 24-Jan. 22). This is a time for getting our affairs in order and setting our priorities straight. It is a month when The Lord wants to separate the light from the darkness in our lives so we can see clearly. It is a vision-casting season!
Pastor Kent and Beverly sought the Lord for His vision for Word Alive International Outreach (WAIO) in 2023. Two separate prophecies confirmed that this is the “Year of Light” for our ministry.
“Justice” was the word for 2022, and we saw how angels of justice were sent to many nations, denouncing oppression, abuse and authoritarianism of unjust governments. This will not diminish in 2023 but will increase, for God’s justice always leads us to the Light. This liberation of light will come to our homes, ministries and cities. To God be the glory!
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday. (Psalm 37:6 ESV)
Interestingly, 2023 began on a Sunday—the first day of the week—and will also end on a Sunday. This will not happen again until 2062. Note that it was on day one of creation that God said, “Let there be light.” Christ—the Light of the world—was resurrected on the first day of the week, as well. We are believing we will have a year surrounded by light, where light is the measure of all things. It is a time when day and night (light and darkness) will have sharp definition so that God’s righteousness will have more weight, and the church will become more sensitive to it (Revelation 22:11).
Kent and Bev were in Alaska when the Father took them to the house of Light and told them that seven rooms would be revealed in this beautiful abode to enable the saints to access greater levels of light. The seven rooms He revealed are:
- To eat the bread of heaven (to do the will of the Father)
- Honor (surrender our desires to Him)
The Lord calls us to be “scatterers of light” (Shedeyúr) this year, so that the angels of righteousness may continue to do their work. But if we are to receive the blessings God has for us, we must get over the disappointments of the past. It is essential to move beyond unbelief and establish ourselves in a position of faith.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV)
We believe that WAIO is not just a local church, but an apostolic epicenter of transformation. As such, we will continue our work to promote freedom across the globe. It is also our desire to shift the bulk of spiritual activity from our church building into people’s homes. We envision these “houses of light” to be places where families and neighbors encounter Christ together.
We want to equip and empower our faith family to lead their own houses of light, and the first step is participation in our Transformation course. This foundational class will be offered monthly on our campus, and materials are also available for those who would like to complete the training individually or with a small group. View our online event calendar for scheduled classes.
We are excited about what God is going to do in and through WAIO in this Year of Light! For more information on how you can get involved and be a part of the Lord’s vision for 2023, please send us a message!
