What’s the Prophetic Outlook for 2016? – By Elisha Goodman

Welcome To the Nehemiah Year – A Year to Rebuild What Had Been Destroyed


Build Brand New Things That Did Not Even Exist Before 

In the realm of the spirit, the LORD is releasing an unusual anointing to…

Rebuild … Rebuild … Rebuild…

It is an anointing to rebuild things that had been thrown down, devastated and destroyed out of all shape and recognition.

It is a strong anointing to rebuild the old waste places previously overrun by the enemy.

It is a hidden anointing for a fresh, new wave of Christian entrepreneurship (this will all be clear in a moment).

First, let’s situate this in scripture.

We take two readings from the Old Testament book of Nehemiah and round out with one reading from the gospels.

The Old Testament readings will give us the proper context while the New Testament verses will open to us the Hidden Path, and show us how to do this successfully.

We begin with Nehemiah’s prayer:

The words of Nehemiah son of Hakaliah:

In the month of Kislev in the twentieth year, while I was in the citadel of Susa, Hanani, one of my brothers, came from Judah with some other men, and I questioned them about the Jewish remnant that had survived the exile, and also about Jerusalem.

They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.”

When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Then I said:

“Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father’s family, have committed against you. We have acted very wickedly toward you. We have not obeyed the commands, decrees and laws you gave your servant Moses.

 “Remember the instruction you gave your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, but if you return to me and obey my commands, then even if your exiled people are at the farthest horizon, I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for my Name.’

 “They are your servants and your people, whom you redeemed by your great strength and your mighty hand. Lord, let your ear be attentive to the prayer of this your servant and to the prayer of your servants who delight in revering your name. Give your servant success today by granting him favor in the presence of this man.”

I was cupbearer to the king. Nehemiah 1:1-11

 Now, was this prayer answered?

Let’s read a little bit more:

In the month of Nisan in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, when wine was brought for him, I took the wine and gave it to the king. I had not been sad in his presence before, so the king asked me, “Why does your face look so sad when you are not ill? This can be nothing but sadness of heart.”

I was very much afraid, but I said to the king, “May the king live forever! Why should my face not look sad when the city where my ancestors are buried lies in ruins, and its gates have been destroyed by fire?”

The king said to me, “What is it you want?”

Then I prayed to the God of heaven, and I answered the king, “If it pleases the king and if your servant has found favor in his sight, let him send me to the city in Judah where my ancestors are buried so that I can rebuild it.”

Then the king, with the queen sitting beside him, asked me, “How long will your journey take, and when will you get back?” It pleased the king to send me; so I set a time.

I also said to him, “If it pleases the king, may I have letters to the governors of Trans-Euphrates, so that they will provide me safe-conduct until I arrive in Judah? And may I have a letter to Asaph, keeper of the royal park, so he will give me timber to make beams for the gates of the citadel by the temple and for the city wall and for the residence I will occupy?”

 And because the gracious hand of my God was on me, the king granted my requests. So I went to the governors of Trans-Euphrates and gave them the king’s letters. The king had also sent army officers and cavalry with me.Nehemiah 2:1-9

Welcome To the Nehemiah Year – A Year to Rebuild What Had Been Destroyed


Build Brand New Things That Did Not Even Exist Before

Here’s the back story:

The book of Nehemiah tells the story of a man of the same name and his work in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, which had been destroyed during the Babylonian conquest.

As a Jewish remnant serving as a high official in the royal court of the king of Persia, he was told of the distress in his homeland of Judah, and how the walls of Jerusalem were in ruins. He heard how they were the laughingstock of the surrounding nations.

He began to fast. He began to pray… concerning the situation.

Then the LORD answered his prayers and caused him to find favour before the king, who not only granted his request but also sent him to Judah as a governor with a mandate to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.

In spite of strong opposition from enemies within and without, he got the job done.

The walls were rebuilt within 52 days. As governor of the province, he then began the difficult task of repopulating the city and purifying the community. He enforced the cancellation of debts, assisted the priests in administering religious laws, and ruled with justice and righteousness for 12 years.

Fast forward to the 21st century… to this present moment.

What’s This Got
To Do With You?

In the lives of so many believers today, the walls (or hedge) of security and protection that the LORD supernaturally put in place for His children had been torn down, devastated and destroyed generations ago…

leaving them helpless and defenceless against the roaring attacks of the enemy.

Their finances, marriages, families, even their health, have been left exposed and the enemies of God have been having a field day, feasting off of them.

In scripture, walls refer to divine security and protection. A lot of terrible things can happen once the hedge of divine security has been broken.

In 2016 the LORD wants that hedge repaired.

And he wants to use you as the Nehemiah of this time to rebuild, reconstruct and restore… beginning from your prayer altar.

Please note 2 things about the man Nehemiah.

First, he was a tenacious prayer warrior.

When he heard the news of devastation at home, he did not just barrel his way into the presence of the king to make a request.

Doing so would have guaranteed his untimely death.

Instead the path he followed was the route taken by all prayer eagles… from the past to the present.

He went to the King of kings first… in fasting and prayers.

He knew full well that

The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water:
he turns it wherever he will. – Prov.21:1

No wonder he received grace, favour and anointing for the job at hand. 

Second, Nehemiah had the spirit of entrepreneurship

Imagine the courage of taking on the task of rebuilding something that had been destroyed beyond repair.

Imagine the stiff opposition he faced. Yet he pressed on undaunted. That’s the hallmark of successful entrepreneurs.

Notice how he mobilized the people to do the work. Notice how he put up a security perimeter around the work. Nothing could stop this man.

His secret?

He put his trust in the LORD and moved as he was led by the Spirit.

The lesson for us is that it is NOT nearly enough to pray. You have to get up and take persistent ACTION in the direction of your goal.

No room for laziness.

In 2016 the Nehemiah anointing is being released to:

–         Rebuild lives that had been wasted

–         Rebuild families long devastated by the scourge of generational sins, curses and evil covenants

–         Rebuild broken marriages and relationships

–         Rebuild the faith and spiritual lives previously shipwrecked

–         Rebuild the calling and ministries that had been scattered from within and without.


You May Find This One
Hard To Believe (It’s True All The Same)

A really unusual anointing has also been released …

… for believers who would be courageous enough to go into business for themselves.

This is what I referred to earlier as the anointing for Christian entrepreneurship.

Now hear this…

The LORD is not happy that so many of His children have continued to shy away from the divine calling to start new businesses. Many would rather work for even satanic organizations just to earn a pay check.

As you read this, if the Holy Spirit brings conviction to your heart, please don’t waive it aside.

In the days ahead, you do not want to be working where the LORD is not with you a hundred percent.

No matter how cozy or comfortable that job might be, it could disappear in a twinkle of an eye, especially if the LORD has been showing you that it’s time to go start a business and employ His children, instead of remaining an employee for life.

Read the Bible very well. There is an exciting undercurrent of entrepreneurship from beginning to the end.

The wealthy men and women of the Bible were entrepreneurs.

Same thing today.

Most wealthy people you read about are entrepreneurs to the core.

Unfortunately many of them are using their wealth to push all kinds of ungodly agenda all over the place.

But the LORD has a surprise for them.

Many of the giant corporations we’ve come to know will soon disappear.

In their place, the LORD is raising a new breed of businesses built on a foundation of righteousness and the fear of God.

Right now, He is releasing to His people the divine wisdom to build mega-corporations of the future from scratch…

… the kind of wisdom needed to solve the big problems confronting humanity that today’s organizations even with their massive resources have so far failed to solve.

Because their worldly wisdom can only take them so far.

The LORD is about to step in and change things. But He wants to touch the hearts and minds of humanity first.

The anointing is being released right now. As I write this, the spirit realm is thickly covered with this powerful anointing.

At the gate of 2016, you have a great opportunity to tap into this anointing, draw it into your life, and then launch out with courage and conviction.

As with everything supernatural, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about this.

Let me share with you the right way to do it.
