2019 – PIONEERS: Hold onto your Promise and you will see your WONDERLAND – A Word by Christy Johnston
There are four prophetic words that have been following us for the past month during our time in the U.S. Everywhere we turn and look, everywhere we stay, they are highlighted to us repetitively and daily. These four words, Pioneer, Evergreen, Swift and Wonderland have jumped out to us in unusual ways… one example of many is our hotel was unexpectantly located on ‘Pioneer Trail,’ another was opposite ‘Pioneer Lane.’ I believe the Holy Spirit is speaking specifically to the pioneers in this coming year and season: it is time to take possession of your wonderland, it will be filled with evergreens and it will happen swiftly.
Your Gates are Being Strengthened.
In the past few months, there has been intense and increased opposition and
pressure upon the pioneers. If you have been walking through an unusual
time of confusion, opposition, betrayal and relentless warfare, take heart.
You hold in your hands the keys of a pioneer and your Father is walking
ahead of you, He is leading the way, you are not alone. The opposition will
relinquish as you continue moving forward, so don’t give up now. I believe
this warfare has been sent on assignment from the enemy to prevent many
pioneers from discovering and taking their promised lands.
Though the opposition and spiritual warfare you have endured this year may have been fierce, I hear the Fathers roar of protection over you: “My beloved, everything the enemy has thrown your way has only served to strengthen you. I am turning every arrow into blessing, every fear and failure into fruit. I am driving out the foxes from your land, I am strengthening your gates and blessing you with more.”
“For he has strengthened the authority of your gates.
He even blesses you with more children.
He is the one who brings peace to your borders,
Feeding you the most excellent of fare.”
Psalm 147:13-14 tpt
New Frontiers of Gold Rush Glory.
I heard in my spirit, ‘NEW FRONTIERS,’ and I saw a vision of ‘Gold Rush’ communities being birthed and springing up from desert places because of your faithfulness to continue moving forward. I believe what this means is that there are new frontiers of glory and divine wisdom about to be discovered, just like the ‘Gold rush’ days of old. I saw inventions coming out of this place that carry the divine wisdom and mind of God. I saw solutions and answers being released from heaven to the minds of pioneers who have pursued the road less traveled with their Father. I specifically see that many of these solutions would be influential in seeing injustices overturned, particularly abortion and human trafficking. The pioneers who refuse to back down will tap into springs of glory that have not yet been seen on this earth and this rush of gold, heavenly wisdom and glory will affect every sphere on influence on the earth.
A Wonderland of Evergreens.
Where many pioneers have endured long seasons of drought and wilderness, I
believe the Father is also turning this new year into your promised land of
‘Evergreen’, however, it isn’t something that will happen like a genie
appearing from a bottle, but rather, this promised land of ‘evergreen’ will
be seized as you faithfully move forward, one step at a time. I cannot
emphasize this enough: your promised land will come through His strength,
yet, I feel there is a strong urgency for the need of partnership over your
prophetic words. I see many prophecies stored away on the bookshelves of
hearts, gathering dust in long forgotten memories, and in this season, the
Holy Spirit is calling you and I to remembrance… to remind ourselves of His
promises as we cross over into 2019 and CONTEND with them this coming year.
One such promise to contend with is found in Isaiah 41:18-20.

“I will open up refreshing streams on the barren hills
and springing fountains in the valleys.
I will make the desert a pleasant pool
And the dry land springs of water.
I will plant in the treeless desert cedars and acacia,
Myrtle and olive trees.
I will set in the wilderness evergreens
Together with many elm and cypress.
Everyone will see and know that I, Yahweh,
With My mighty hands have done this.
They will consider and comprehend
That the Holy One of Israel has created it.”
Each of these trees represent a significant picture of promise fulfilled, I see this coming year is going to be a remarkable year for those who contend with the promises in their hands and you WILL see long-forgotten promises fulfilled. These pioneers who refuse to allow disappointment or bitterness to take root in their hearts, but look to their promised lands with the same fierce determination of Joshua and Caleb will say by the end of 2019, “LOOK WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE!” What once was a dry and weary wilderness wasteland will be flourishing with evergreens. You will grow and thrive in every season just like the evergreen, no matter the earthly climate. This coming season will look like a wonderland filled with evergreens.
The Swift Shift is Upon you.
I can feel the encouragement of the Father for the Pioneers as 2019 is upon us. I see the word SWIFT over you. Where you have fought for and believed for promises for many years, your contending this year will produce SWIFT possession of your promised land. The foxes are being driven out, the authority of your gates are being strengthened, your wilderness is turning into a wonderland of evergreens, you are about to discover new frontiers and it is happening SWIFTLY. All that is required of you is to come into faith and agreement with what He is speaking. I sense that there are many pioneers who almost feel skeptical of prophetic words for this new year as there has been much disappointment in years past of not yet seeing prophecies fulfilled. I see the Holy Spirit filling you with fresh courage to hope again, fresh excitement to dream again and new boldness to step out in faith and believe that God will do what He has promised to do. The instructions that Paul gives to Timothy in 1 Timothy 1:18-19 are for the Pioneers in this hour:
“So Timothy, my son, I am entrusting you with this responsibility, in keeping with the very first prophecies that were spoken over your life, and are now in the process of fulfillment in this great work of ministry, in keeping with the prophecies spoken over you. With this encouragement use your prophecies as weapons as you wage spiritual warfare by faith and with a clean conscience. For there are many who reject these virtues and are now destitute of the true faith.”
Pioneers, this is your time. Do not lose heart or become destitute of faith, the Holy Spirit is calling to your remembrance even now what you thought was lost and forgotten. He is calling to your remembrance the prophecies He has spoken over you, for these promises fulfilled will bring Him the glory. This is the year of the manifestation and BIRTHING of your promises as you hold fast to HOPE, this is the year you will behold with your eyes your WONDER-LAND and you will look in awe and declare: “LOOK WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE.”
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ. As you sow that offering, it is that act of faith that will cause the Red Sea where you are standing to part in your life. The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
