The other day the Spirit of the Lord asked me a question,
“How long will you have been married in 2017?”
Then the Spirit said,
“Yes, this is double 17’s! There will be a release of double portions in 2017. Double redemption, double restoration and double repayment for every promise that has been delayed.”
Then I confirmed the math that 17 + 17 does indeed equal 34. Then the Spirit told me,
“It will be double for all of your trouble. Go to Psalm 34:17 and I will confirm this to you.”
So I did!
“The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.”
WHAT??!!! I love going on these treasure hunts for truth and prophetic confirmations with the Holy Spirit.
Be sure to read the entirety of Psalm 34 as I believe it is a prayer and promise for this year. Then the Spirit led me to turn to Isaiah 34:17 which reads,
“He allots their portions; his hand distributes them by measure. They will possess it forever and dwell there from generation to generation.”
Isaiah 34:17 NIV
Obviously this verse is taken out of context of the full chapter but the Holy Spirit is free to speak truth out of any part of His Word. God’s hand is distributing and measuring out a double portion upon fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, upon generations upon generations. An inheritance is being released and a restoration of “double” for lost inheritances. I believe that this includes lands, property and “dwelling places” (homes and shelter).
On a larger scale I also believe that this is a promise to Israel that their land will be protected and not divided.
Last, I feel that there has been a great sanctification happening in God’s people that is aligning them with the truth of God’s written Word and promises that reveal His true character. This will draw us into a greater unity with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and the unity and oneness that exists within the Godhead.
“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.”
Again, there is the double 17. John 17 also contains the prayer of Jesus that we would be one as they are one (John 17:20-23).
It is time for your double that will deliver you from your troubles.
We are declaring that every dollar sown in 2017 will have a double portion return! This is the year of double and seeds will be doubled. Amen!
