2018 Prophecy — Prophet Tony Mathias


The following is the Prophet’s interpretation and sensing in the spirit – open to the Guild of Prophets for confirmation or contradiction.

I sense the Year 2018 – a year of new beginnings for many ready for change.

I hear the Lord say:
“This is the year of the ‘Open Door.’ Hands off to what I am about to do for you where you have no part to play except to be a joyful and thankful receiver”.

God is opening new doors in your life that no one can shut.

Some of the closed doors you have been knocking on are opening – in answer to prayer.

Unexpected doors for your good are also flying open. This is your season 0f break-through. – A year of divine favor. Your good is coming to you in surprising ways. Decree it and receive it!

The Lord says:
“I am building My Church; I am birthing a rapid-fire prophetic people in these days; a people of power, a people of praise who will move through this land by My Spirit and will glorify My Name” – This is the year of the Joshua’s.

“I am winding up the old, and ushering in the new; replacing old methods, with new ones. My ways are higher than your ways and thoughts higher than your thoughts.

“As you come in agreement with others in prayer for the vision-prophecies directions I give you, you will bring it to birth quickly and not like a pregnant mother awaiting delivery nine months later. ‘…before you call I will answer and while you are yet speaking I will listen.’”

“The most important doors I am opening are doors to revival. Therefore pray for revival, your leaders, Church, cities and families.”

“I am about to start something new afresh this year with new beginnings.”
As Elisha received a double portion get ready this double portion anointing is coming upon you – be glad. ‘He is causing the rain to come down for you the former and latter rain.’

There has been a pursuit in one direction, now there is going to be a reversal to apostolic times, apostolic power and yet greater glory. ‘For the glory of the latter house shall be greater than the former house.’

Prayer – position yourself like Prophet Elijah to hear the sound of the abundance of rain. It is not just beginning to rain but there is coming a downpour, hear my Father saying…‘Whosoever will let him drink of this water. I will pour out My Spirit on your sons and your daughters. If you’re thirsty and dry lift your hands to the sky its beginning to pour.’

– There is coming a great visitation to the earth, unseen, unheard of before.

I hear the Lord saying:
“I am visiting My people. I am awakening My people from their slumber at this midnight hour and saying to them – run as a herald and declare that I the King of Glory am coming, make way for Me – This great visitation will bring Me Glory as well as bring judgment in the ‘pulpits and pews’ as I cleanse My house to make it a glorious bride and a ‘house of prayer.’

“Arise repent and seek My face. It’s the year of My visitation. Arise draw your sword against the enemy of your soul.”

I hear the Lord saying that He will visit places that would include Hollywood, Dens, Covens, Hideouts, and make His appearance even in other religious places as well, in response to prayer and preaching of the gospel by His faithful ones – and they will hear His voice and respond for has He not said: ‘The gospel the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes?’

I see a flight of eagles backed by larger eagles in transit across the globe – would you be one of those to take the Gospel of the Kingdom and the soon coming return of the Lord to the ends of the earth?

Eagles in the prophetic world are symbolic of a prophetic generation.

This is the time of release for ‘Young Eagles’ that have been in training, waiting patiently to spread their wings and fly. They have the fire of the Lord upon them, and are ready for the battle at hand.

This is the time for ‘Old Eagles’ faithful to their call to take up their position as backup advisory generals with eagle vision to support these ‘Young Eagles,’ who have God’s heart and seek His glory.

I hear the Lord saying:
“Arise! Spread your wings for the wind of My Spirit comes to lift you up into the heavens.”

I sense it is time for you to leave your nest and enter into the service of the Lord being empowered as you move into His purposes.

At this grim hour, there will be an overwhelming influence of prophets worldwide endeavoring to put things in order in the lives of God’s people as they herald the coming of the Lord.

‘Behold He comes riding on the clouds shining like the sun at the trumpet’s call; lift your voice it’s the year of jubilee, out of Zion’s Hill salvation comes.’

I see storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and the like – wars, earthquakes that have been prophesied earlier, on their destructive wake – a world in chaos, disorder despite technological advances with the demise of countless.

He says: “For My people who walk with Me and long for My return there will be a detour – a thousand may fall at their side, ten thousand at their right hand…no evil shall befall them and no plague come nigh their dwelling; tragedies will by-pass them; though in this world they will have tribulation yet they will overcome.”
– Get intimate with God and walk in holiness.

This year the world will be tested with a potential threat of nuclear war. Could this be the beginnings of World War 3?

Hear you nations of the earth opposing the Lord of Glory.

“Oh kings and rulers of the earth listen while there is time – serve with reverent fear; rejoice with trembling. Fall down before His Son and kiss His feet before His anger is roused and you perish. I am warning you – His wrath will soon begin but oh the joys of those who trust him.”

You need to exercise your governmental authority more than ever with the high praises of God and the two-edged sword in your mouth – God’s Word.

The Lord says:
“Yes I am shaking the heavens and the earth as well – people who are in and out of churches. My judgment has fallen on My house for those who have made it a den of thieves, a marketplace. Repent or perish! –

“Lukewarm churches will be extinct for I spew them out of My mouth.”

“Pastoral leadership I have called you to feed My people with the truth of My Word and cause them to be the light and salt of the earth and walk in My ways, if not beware I will remove your candlesticks. I demand that My Son takes His rightful place in your assemblies, for My Church is not called to be a ‘play church’ but a ‘house of prayer. Therefore repent!”

A call to fast and pray in preparedness for His appearance; prepare, prepare, prepare!

The good news is that there is going to be a return of a number of backslidden because of the prayers of the saints.
The Lord welcomes the repentant and contrite of heart and exhorts the humble and prayerful.

The Lord says:
“If my people that are called by name shall humble themselves, gather in prayer seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven forgive their sins and heal their land.”

The Lord says:
“For My people who walk with Me and trust Me, you will be plenteous in goods distributing to the needy – even during seasons of scarcity.”
– There is going to be a number of debt cancellations

Further, in the coming future – I sense a number of global occurrences;
Extra-ordinary phenomena with much angelic activity, angelic appearances on the rise.

Extra-ordinary miracles will become naturally supernatural.

Supernatural travels

Translocations – reports of people appearing and disappearing from one place to another will be more apparent.

Heavenly portals opening at various places; shutting down of demonic ones.

Mumbai City becoming an avenue for portals; an influx of prophets – keep praying and decreeing.

Unexpected doors opening for people to minister in countries apart from their own.

Supernatural wealth transfer.

Open heavens at many geographical points including cities.

I see windmills in Gujarat, Orissa symbolizing winds of the Spirit doing a new spiritual work – nourishment from the Lord and revival fires.

I see United States 0f America acknowledging the sovereignty of God, though experiencing a tunneling – cocoon experience at the onset but eventually emerging like a magnificent multi-colored butterfly, a blazing trail, coalition…

Revival in Israel – New Year 5778, open door, new beginnings, manifest presence, manifest sons, double blessing…

New creative methodology for speeding up the spread of the gospel and collection of harvest; His ways are ingenious His methods are sure and certain!

The curse and decree against your destiny is being reversed by the ‘Courts of Heaven.’

A move towards intercontinental travel via passports – visas obsolete.

A whole island will submerge and other islands emerge.

Cancer-cure discovery, economical not astronomical.

A further tipping of the earth’s axis.

Snowfall at places where there was none.

Sowing in the past will bring a reaping of bountiful returns this year.

Skeletal remains of giants of bygone years unearthed.

Demise of the head of a large denominational Church causing church splits forming free churches – departure from organizational structures to form free churches.

Reports of children in prayer acquainted with God causing mighty results in Prayer.

A blessing extended to all the nations of the earth
God Almighty May your kingdom Come and Will be Done!
Jesus Christ Is Lord Now And Forever!

The Manifestation of the Sons of God — Shane Picardo

“For all creation waits in eager expectation for the manifestation of the sons of God.” (Romans 8:19)

Not everyone who calls themselves as a ‘child of God’ here on earth are truly recognized in heaven as a son or daughter of God. I believe there’s a difference between boasting- “I know God” and knowing that- “He knows you”. So as His child, He probably looks at you, beckons one of the angels and says, “See, that’s my beloved son/daughter there.” Because the Lord knows those that are His children.

Let me tell you a story:

Many years ago, a well-known ‘man of God’ went to visit a king. He managed to make it to the castle and reach the throne room. The king being busy with some work gave this man of God 10 minutes to speak. Meanwhile his 5-year-old son, whom he loved the most, just walks in with tear filled eyes holding a toy in his hand- “Daddy my favorite toy just broke while I was playing. Can you fix it?” The king then picks up his son, puts him on his lap and starts fixing the toy by putting its parts in order. After it was done, his son gave him a kiss & went to his room rejoicing.

The king looking at the clock, told the man of God, “You have 5 minutes left. My son took the other 5 minutes”.

If this scenario could be true with the king and his son, how much more would our Heavenly Father do for us as His children when we cry out “Abba! My Father!” It is the same when you walk in relationship with God. When you gaze upon the genealogy of Jesus in Luke 3:23 onwards, at the end you see it being stated that Adam was the son of God. In Matthew 6:9 and Matthew 23:9, Jesus Himself urges us to address God as “Father”.

Even though many of us believers have been prodigal, He has drawn us back to Him through His Son Jesus Christ. We should never forget that Jesus is not only our Lord and Saviour but also our big brother, seated at the right hand of Daddy, interceding and praying for us.

Daughters of God like Wendy Alec, Heidi Baker, late Kathryn Kuhlman and so on, have impacted the world through television and great revivals, healings, signs, wonders, and miracles by virtue of their relationship with God with no backup of titles.

Let me give an example. The great revivalist Kathryn Kuhlman stunned the world by mighty works of healings, signs wonders, and miracles, performed by God through her. Stadiums were jam packed with people just to hear her preach and experience the tangible presence of God she carried. And yet humble enough, to state: “I am neither a Prophet nor some Apostle.” God needs “yielded vessels.” She knew who she was in Christ. You too should let the world know you as a son or daughter of the Most-High God.
“And if we are His children then we are His heirs also; heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ.” (Romans 8:17)

Your rights and privileges as heirs of God:

• Knowing that God is your Father, you have direct access to visit His throne and to spend time with Him.
• You are qualified to do the things Jesus did, and even greater works…John 14:12
• As the Father’s prince or princess, you have been given power and authority as co-builders with Christ to expand and build His Kingdom on earth. 1 Corinthians 3:9
• In prayer, to exercise dominion and take over uncharted territories of the enemy here on earth and to uproot and tear down all that the enemy has planted against God’s Kingdom.
• Unlimited access to heaven’s resources.

So how do you walk in authority and exercise your rights as a son of God?

Here is the key- “For all those who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.” (Romans 8:14). To be totally led by the Holy Spirit requires being continually filled with Him. Peter who was ‘filled with the Holy Spirit’ preached to onlookers at the day of Pentecost and saved 3000 people (Acts 2:41). He was able to perform the instant healing of a lame beggar at the temple gate (Acts 3:1-10).

Another instance to cite is where people used to wait on the streets for Peter to pass by in the hope that his shadow would fall on them and they would be healed. (Acts 5:15) The same Holy Spirit who anointed Peter, John, Paul is also available to us!

The scripture in Romans 8:19 says that ‘creation awaits eagerly’ for the sons of God to be manifested. This is because the creation has been under the curse, bondage, death, and witnessed a lot of evil from the kingdom of darkness since the fall of Adam. It silently moans and wails for the Kingdom of God to be made manifest through the sons and daughters of God.

The scripture states, “For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.” (Romans 8:20-21)

“Having canceled the record of charges against us, which stood against us and condemned us; has taken it away nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” (Colossians 2:14-15)

Satan’s status today: Defeated, Disarmed, Deprived of his authority.

To the reader of my article, I just want to ask you, how is your relationship with God?

In prayer, do you use words like- “Dad I love you.” “You’re special.” “I’m blessed to have you in my life.” “Let’s spend some time together in fellowship.” “I want to sit with you.” “Wrap your arms around me.” “I want to know what’s in your heart.” “I want to be like you.” “Let’s talk” and so on or do you always keep on asking, asking and asking for God to fulfill your every wish?

The scripture is very clear, “Delight yourself in the Lord & He will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalms 37:4)

If you have Him, you have everything, but without Him, you are nothing.

When you know your Father is smiling at you, you can face the world! And it’s time to face the world. It’s time to walk in the power and authority given to us by the Most High! It’s time to reveal heaven on earth. Revival begins with you. So are you ready? Put down religion, put down traditions, put down rituals and start having a relationship with Daddy. I’m telling you, it will be worth it!

Stay Blessed!

The Eagle Christian — Prophet Tony Mathias

A tiny eaglet fell out of its nest in a tall tree near a farm, & landed in a chicken coop. He found himself surrounded by little chicks & thought they were his siblings. He grew up like them, learning to scratch for insects & peck at the seeds the farmer scattered in the barnyard. The young eagle’s wings & feathers began to grow, but it never thought it was different from its chicken family.

One day an older eagle, soaring in the sky, spotted it in the barnyard. The eagle swooped down & had a face-to-face talk with the young eagle. “You are not a chicken,” he said, “You are an eagle. You are not supposed to hop around the ground looking for bugs. This is not your life. You are meant to fly in the heavens & ride the wind.” These words opened the little eagle’s eyes to who it really was & gave him the desire to join his new friend above in the clouds. It spread his wings & after a few attempts it lifted off and flew to the nearest tree. With each attempt, it flew higher & farther away. Soon it mounted up with the wind & disappeared in the vast deep blue sky.

Are you living up to your God-given spiritual potential? Are you soaring with Elect Eagles or scratching around with Chicken Christians? “ …those who wait for the Lord expectantly shall renew their strength; they shall lift their wings, rise up close to God as eagles rise up to the sun; they shall run and not be weary, walk and not faint or become tired.” Isaiah 40:31

Joseph waited years for his breakthrough Genesis 37-41 Potiphar’s wife lied about him, he was thrown into prison. Pharaoh’s butler forgot him and he continued in prison. Yet he kept trusting God and became 2nd to Pharaoh. Moses waited for 40 yrs before God used him to deliver the Israelites [Exodus]. – You are never too young or old to do anything important. God is not concerned about your age. He is more concerned about your availability and willingness to obey Him.

David waited for 15 yrs before he became King of Israel: 1,2 Samuel though he was anointed King 15 yrs. earlier. During the interim time of waiting, he continued to worship and trust God in a time of great hardship and King Saul’s attempts to kill him.

What happens to those waiting expectantly for the Lord? – They will ascend! How? – Close to God over storms of life by riding the wind of the Spirit with tireless energy, just like eagles rise up to the Sun soaring over storms by riding the wind with great energy. “The joy of the Lord is your strength” Nehemiah 8: 10. “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” Philippians 4:13. Christians are called to be Eagle Christians, but many live like chickens searching for worms with a mindset that resists change in their comfort zone. By doing this they hinder God’s plan for their .lives – their problem? – Complacency. They resist change.

The Eagle is a very active bird. “As an eagle stirs up her nest, flutters over her young, spreads out her wings, takes them and bears them on her wings.” Deuteronomy 32:11 The mother eagle watches her eaglets in the nest till they are fully feathered and sufficiently mature. Then she “stirs the nest” practically tearing it up making it uncomfortable for her little ones to stay on. She then trains them to fly.

Lately, have you found your nest, comfort zone being stirred, threatened? – job, career, family, church, potential… Wondering what’s happening to your life? Are you one who doesn’t like changes? Are you uncomfortable and worried about it? Did you consider it may be God stirring your nest? That’s His way of telling you that you’ve stayed too long in the nest and He doesn’t want His eaglets to be nest dwellers all their life. His eaglets are meant to fly. So are you!

God has a plan and purpose for your life. Get out of your comfort zone! Just as Mother Eagle spreads her wings and commands her eaglets to step out on them firmly grasping a feather in their beak. In the same way, God trains us by spreading His Word before us commanding us to step on it, grasping firmly to God’s promises in obedience. He has given us the Bible, His manual for life! Just as Mother Eagle watches her little ones in training making sure they don’t fall to the ground when they lose their hold on her feathers. And if they do she lifts them up on her wings to try again. Even so, God watches His own in training to keep them from falling when they lose hold on His promises. If they fall He lifts them up to try again.

Church, you are not chicken scratching the ground searching for bugs and small things. You are Eagle Christians. You are meant to fly and soar in the heavens. You are to think big and set your goals high and achieve them, to dream the impossible dream because you are the children of the King. You have to leave your legacy behind that you passed through this earth once, find God’s plan and purpose for your life and do it. So that your heart will be delighted when you hear the King of heaven say: “Well done thou good and faithful servant!” “He who began a good work in you will carry it onto completion…” Philippians 1:6.
