2023 Prophecy – Prophet Tony Mathias

The following is the Prophet’s foresight, rendition, interpretation, sensing in the spirit for the Year 2023, open to the ‘Guild of Prophets’ for correction, confirmation or contradiction. It serves as an add-on, to many who have prophesied about the coming year.

The Prophet senses a stormy year, turbulence, and global – upheavals in the year 2023 and beyond, with a simultaneous revival birthed of God with God showing up, breaking into our present human history with good news of His salvation and return of the backslidden

The prophecy for the year 2023 and beyond, highlights two aspects regarding ‘The Church’ and ‘The World’ – a message borne on eagles’ wings worldwide.

THE CHURCH

Vision:

I saw a tree that appeared strong and upright above the ground, but rotting below. Some of the roots were exposed. The leaves had paled out and started to fall. The tree did have fruit but not plenteous.  Some of the fruit was good, some rotten.

We have been seeing an era of false prophets arising with deception in their wings. Jesus warned that false prophets – ‘in sheep’s clothing,’ would deceive many people in the last days.

The Bible provides signs and practical ways to spotlight false teachings 1 Timothy 4:1-2

A tree is known by its fruit. Deeds are fruits, words are leaves. ‘Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits.’ Their shameless insidious conspiracy and the compromises that will ruin your life.
Luke 6:43-45; Matthew 7:15-16.

People with ‘itching ears’ are prone to connect with such.
2 Timothy 4:3.

Betrayals and denials are part of the same baggage. It is time to discern ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing. There are many false prophets worldwide. Get ready for opposition when you try to expose them. Thankfully there are genuine prophets also.

There are far too many preachers in churches worldwide, receptacles or carriers void of power and glory. People don’t want to hear the preacher in the Church of their location as sermons are not in short supply on social media, easily downloadable on the Net.

Many Churches are online since the last pandemic and prefer to stay that way rather than congregate physically in Church. The scripture exhorts us not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together.

Hebrews 10:25

In some cases, it might be necessary, but far too many could view it as an opportunity to switch channels to link up with other churches online to suit their preferences and connect with their pastor on remote

This is what we have been seeing in the past. Yes, God has been manifesting himself in churches worldwide but not much. In fact, we should be witnessing the manifestation of God in our churches.

We need to discern ‘cosmetic Christianity’ along with religion and politics. Why? Because there are far too many ‘copy-paste’ preachers, empty vessels devoid of power and glory, who have – ‘a form of godliness but deny the power thereof from whom we are to turn away.’ 2 Timothy 3:5. People are no longer listening to them – ‘itching ears’ and ‘social media’?

Jesus said: ‘For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. Matthew 6:13. 

If we believers as a conduit are unable to command the release of the Kingdom, Power and Glory of our Lord Jesus Christ we are empty vessels making more sound. If our churches have the manifest presence of God accompanied with miracles you can watch them overflow.

The world is looking out for a demonstration of power and a manifestation of glory. God doesn’t change. Glory is unlimited! Miracles pour out of His Glory because of Who He Is. There is a tsunami of glory rapidly coming in.

Judgment has begun with the house of God. The Body of Christ has been divided. We have been seeing more disunity than unity. There has been a steady ‘Fall Away’ from the Church, from biblical practices and the truth of God’s Word. This has given rise to segments of the Church in apostasy.

Lukewarm churches he will spit out of his mouth. Revelation 3:16.

There is migration, out of mega churches that don’t believe in, healings, salvation, deliverances. It is time that Christians begin to judge themselves lest they be judged with the world.

There are going to be believers with doctrinal shifts, who swerve from their faith with emergent deceptive doctrines contrary to the original ones they have been taught endangering their own lives and the lives of others in regards to their salvation.

There is going to be a ‘prophetic generation,’ chosen vessels, destined to be the voice of one crying out prepare ye the way of the Lord,” whom Satan is trying to eradicate with legalized abortions and the murder of babies. These are heralds to the coming of the Lord. We are going to see more child-preachers being born that come out of the womb with fire on their lips. Therefore, we need to pray that Satan’s plan be thwarted and aborted. And it will!

0n the other hand, the good news is that revival has begun and is on the increase. Oh how we need it! All over the world the Spirit is moving as the waters cover the seas. The scripture exhorts us – ‘Arise shine for your light has come and the Glory of Yahweh rises upon you.’

There is going to be a John the Baptist kind of ministry to ‘prepare ye the way of the Lord…’ a call to repentance and walking in the fear of the Lord. The Word of God preached is going to be accompanied with unprecedented miracles, unusual miracles, creative miracles. This could be the fastest way to draw people to the Lord especially having arrived at the ‘beginning of the end.’

For it is written that the glory of the latter house will be greater than the glory of the former Haggai 2:9.

Watch the tsunami wave of healing glory and supernatural translations come in.

The generation of ‘mantle–catchers’ is intensifying this year. God is releasing new mantles with orders from his delegated authorities to move on. Mantles are falling from Zion, restored to the Church once again. There will be mantles picked up from God’s Generals who have passed on, as well as new mantles appropriate for our season. God has decided to partner with man. Will you be the One to host them?

There will also be a shift of mantles of people discarding them, only to be replaced by others who willingly pick them up. Surprisingly there will also be mantles picked up by which are not tailor-made, but willingly accepted by recipients who have a call on their lives. A number of well-known people will be disallowed for ministry. Four of God’s Generals will exit this world and pass on the baton.

If you are a prophet or called to be one, wear a physical mantle as a prophetic act especially where and when it necessitates.

Your mantle will supernaturally remove hindrances in fulfilling your God-designed purpose. You need to march out of your wilderness into your promise land, just as Elijah took his mantle, struck the Jordan River, it divided supernaturally and Elijah and Elisha crossed over on dry land. 

Many have been manipulated and controlled too long in a particular church. This control must die, they should be allowed to go for they are ready and willing to go and expand the kingdom. For many, God is opening up territories that have been shut as intercessors fast and pray. 

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. Anything marching after you to bring you back will be destroyed when you obey marching orders. You will march through your spiritual Red Sea, out of the old season into the new, into places of prosperity, the land of established promises, as you continue to walk with the Lord, sensitive to his commands, giving him the glory all the way. Keep a book of remembrance and expect these things to happen so you can testify: ‘Look what the Lord has done.’ To him be glory, honour and praise.

John the Baptist was basically commissioned by God to introduce the ministry of Jesus Christ, declaring prophetically two major ministries – Baptism-in-the-Holy Spirit’ and the Baptism-of-fire. Matthew 3:11. 

The first has been accomplished in many believers today, but the second heavenly fire baptism has been witnessed by some. It is on the verge of global display. The one-man show is over. It did have a place in the past, but has been silenced with the release of the Corporate Body of Christ functionality and with the revelation of the sons of God.

‘Arise shine for your light has come and the glory of Yahweh rises upon you.’ Branches refusing to bear fruit are like babies crying out to their mothers – ‘carry me.’ How terrible for those who have the prophecy fulfilled – ‘my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch that bears no fruit.’ It is time to put the baby down and say ‘walk.’ It is time for fruit bearing.

These are the days of Elijah declaring the word of the Lord. It is time for us believers to upgrade from quotes and scripture quotes to become living bibles flowing with the Word of God – a two-edged sword in our mouth.

Keep your lamps trimmed with a full reserve of oil awaiting the coming of the Lord, because seducers have been unleashed to dry up your oil. Do not compromise. Let your friendships not be above the Word of God. Being disconnected with people who take you away from the Lord is not the end of your world. Cut off from them and connect with God-lovers and God-chasers. Your sacrifice is a precursor to the font of your provision. The Angel of destiny walks with you.

Vision: I see ‘talking-eagles’ with scrolls in their beak, flying in the sky criss-crossing the globe. I also saw them encircle the sky at certain points. In another vision I saw them stir up the nests of eaglets.

I could decipher just a few words of what they said, though there were many more. To me it sounded like: repent, revive, restore.

Eagles encircling certain points – to me signified ‘new beginnings’ ‘stretching limits.’

‘Stirring of nests’ to eject eaglets training them to fly

God is raising young eagle-prophets mature in their walk with the Lord who will prophesy to nationalities, nations and governing authorities regarding current affairs. As a prophetic people, a royal priesthood God has given us keys of royalty, governmental and priestly to represent him as we declare and decree. We need to walk in our prophetic mantles and not get complacent.

This year we are going to see the power of God’s Word displayed with amazing results, for they are active and alive and they will be preached with signs following. It will be performed by those who not only fast and pray but more importantly come to the point to declare and decree – ‘It is written.’ Therefore, we need to pray, the Word! 

These Scriptures are entry-portals, gates, into God’s presence and into the supernatural. People who have experiential knowledge of their value will be transported into the realms and dimensions of the Spirit. How wonderful for the people who experience the glory – manifest presence of the Lord and his power for miracles, who know their church is a portal, for members to be transported into the realms of glory

Restoration! Restoration! Restoration! You are about to receive back with interest all that has been lost or stolen, what the devil has stolen and taken from you. Every plan your Father in heaven has not planned shall be dissolved. Tides are turning, financial burdens are being lifted despite the lean years following. Divine ideas will come to pass. For, as you who walk with the Lord, He is going to surprise you with pleasant surprises. He loves his people and cares for their needs and desires. He grants the desires of our heart when we delight in him.

Yes, he is your unfailing supply and large sums of money will come to you quickly under grace in perfect ways with wisdom to invest profitably, and disburse as he shows you to. Do not limit the ‘Holy One of Israel.’ You shall be a lender and not a borrower. Ask for wisdom the principal thing.

You will receive favour. ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him’ 1 Corinthians 2:9. 

His ways are higher than our ways. His ways are ingenious and unusual. God works in unexpected places, unexpected people, unexpected times his wonders to perform. Seemingly impossible doors will open, seemingly impossible channels will be set free. Believe that! Expect! Pray! Move On!

God is Restoring Issachar’s Generation 1Chron12:32 who had understanding of the times. There is also no doubt God is restoring the prophet, seers and visionaries today. We are in the midst of a crucial prophetic movement. This is also the year for the modern day Elijah.

 ‘You shall decree upon a thing and it shall be established unto you and light shall shine upon your path.’ When you decide and decree according to God’s spoken word to you, it shall be done, for decision and decree are yoked together.

There are going to be many angelic encounters and we need to know how to partner with angels. There will also be encounters with saints of old that have passed on with divine instructions. There will be a visitation of the Lord and his angels in visions, dreams, trances. Get ready to receive mandates. The Holy Spirit will release angels, disclose specific things concerning purpose and destiny to help you fulfil your prophecy. The spirit of integrity and righteousness will lead you in the Lord’s ways.

Storms shall come but be like an eagle awaiting the storm, ascending over it and gliding effortlessly

Vision: I see you drawing water from a well for thirsty people around you. When you draw out your bucket is filled with books and not water. And you are distributing books to them. You will be supernaturally taught to write books, although you may have never written before, with a new gift dropping into you.

There is a divine shift for those who practise his presence and wait upon him –revelations shall come. Gratitude opens unlimited doors. As you begin to appreciate and give him thanks for what he has done and is doing for you directly and through others, you will ascend. Appreciation brings elevation. Appreciating others opens doors to foster good relationships.

I have given you the tongue of a ready-writer; a pen in your hand, words in your mouth; a burning fire within. All the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

Some of you will write books and some will write songs with melodies and lyrics. New songs will be coming up with singing and groaning in the spirit that will unlock gates in the spirit. The Father longs for those who will worship him in spirit and truth. Those who are connected with the supernatural will understand these things better.

This is the year of the prophetic – supernatural. There will be attacks on the genuine prophetic ministry. It is alright to expose the false prophets who come masquerading as wolves in sheep’s clothing. But even the genuine prophetic ministry will be attacked in these last days calling the genuine false, even though they point out to Jesus, herald the coming of the Lord, call the unrighteous to repentance, receive revelations and directions from the Lord for our benefit and foretell coming events so that the world may be warned.

Vision: I see a book, with a new chapter opened for some of you this year, which will usher in new beginnings, to be a successful entrepreneur, closed doors opening, favour, a shift in finances-opulence, church-expansion, anointing, manifest glory in churches bearing fruit, favourable winds. Oh how wonderful it would be to worship God in song with one – liners: We seek your presence; we seek your glory Oh Lord!’

DECEMBER 2022

This present month December 2022 is a portal, a gateway into the new year 2023. It should be a time of prayer, which will be a preparation for coming years. I sense that when you give him more of thanksgiving and praise this month he will guide you to make wise and profitable investments in the coming years, though some have prophesied lean years, and you will with comfort receive a harvest of plenty.

I sense you should minor on festivity and expenses this month, while you major on thanksgiving, praise and worship, to the Lord who has blessed us and protected us in many ways, despite difficulties, tribulations and persecutions arising.

‘Let the people praise thee Oh God, let all the people praise thee, then shall the earth yield her increase and the Lord shall bless us.’ – I believe every church should end this year collectively with a thanksgiving day.

As believers pray intensively for the coming new year, it will open up and release divine – mandates, divine possibilities, new beginnings. Books of destiny have been opened in heaven for those diligent in interceding in the Spirit for God’s perfect will to be done.

THE WORLD

The world is already being judged. for rejecting Jesus Christ. There is a foreboding of World War 3, being hatched. Putin’s war could escalate into World War 3 -the beginning of the end

There will be famines, earthquakes and pestilences in diverse places devoid of peace, nations will rise up against nations Matthew 24:7.

Yes, there will be violent earthquakes and hail storms and a global famine. Travel and communication during these times will be heavily impaired and collapse – many will be left homeless

There will be a downfall of government, and rise of violence- change of presidency in seven nations of the world. There will be migrations from one country to another because of unrest and rising expenses, economic unrest, high inflation. Social unrest would include civil disorders, mass civil disobedience, rioting and strikes. There would be a disruption of public order, threatening public safety.

The only recourse is to run to the throne of grace, run to Jesus the King of Peace who says –Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you, not like the world gives. He will meet all our needs according to his riches in glory. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives and we shall dwell in the house of the Lord, the house of abundance forever.

Witchcraft at the highest level will be in operation. There shall be darkness in the heavens and earth over the nations with dark spirits that are tangible in array. Lawlessness will escalate more than ever before.  There will be cities on fire, the military will be brought in to enforce law and order for safety of people, poll-centres disallowing people to vote.

There is going to be a new fabricated disease invented and spread by the enemy. A break-out of famine – get ready to store provision that could help others as well. We need to pray against these things using our authority. We should pray that evil be exposed, cut off and righteousness reign. God is the Great salt-shaker and he is shaking the heavens and the earth just as he said he would.

A rise of creative architects coming forth with unusual building designs, especially with domes pointing out to the heavens above, to Almighty God, the Architect of the Universe.

Land shifts taking place, submerging of islands, re-emergence of islands. There will come at least four Tsunamis – two in the west and two in the east of the globe.                                            

Along with technological advancement and the era of Robots, human – animal hybridization will become more pronounced in Satan’s attempt for the destruction of humanity, to change humanity into monsters, hybrids and beasts. It has already begun. There will be a major research in the DNA.

Psalm 91:1. He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

In the matchless name of Jesus!       

The King 0f Glory!

The King of kings and Lord of lords!
