The number 13 has various meanings, and two of those meanings are like a “two-fold” promise. God and man. It always has seasons, times and circumstances in which God and man participate. The number 13 can mean rebellion and love one being a time of rebellion and the other a time of love. A time of rebellion for the world and a time of God showing His love too to His Church.
The year 2013 will be a year of rebellion in the world and also a time of love and mercy of God being shown. I like to draw the analogy that the Lord gave me last year…”A time of the sun (Son) shinning on one side and rain on the other.”
2013 will bring much excitement to the church, a year of joy and a year of suddenness. For as you speak so shall it become. Matthew 18:18-19. Surely we will begin to walk in the Glory realm.
Yes, 2013 shall bring much darkness to the world, the winds will blow, the waters will rise, the earth shall open but it is not the end…it will cause a cleansing and it is the beginning. The beginning of a revival in the Christian community and this will cause the beginning of a great evangelist. Many will turn to the Lord.
The world will experience more extremes, more natural phenomenal , more earthquakes, floods, and fierce winds BUT out of this will come a cleansing and putting in order.
There will be much more persecution especially of the 5 fold ministry, but rejoice. I heard Ezekiel 3:8-9 “Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads. 9 As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.”
As I began to seek the Lord concerning the new year, I heard the sound of the Shofar and then I heard the Spirit of the Lord say: “I am sending “My Word” to the church to establish order. I am coming TO My Church –not FOR My Church, to establish many Proton Churches.” I was directed to Ephesians 2:20.. Which states that the church is built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone. The Apostles and prophets are a foundation to these Proton Churches, stone.
Then I felt the “Wind of the Spirit” begin to blow and it caused the dead situation (things) to live again. The dead promises, dreams, and desires, and hopes once again began to breath as the Word of the Lord touched them. I see the Lord touching the dead dreams, the promises that have been made and hopes that the church has put aside even given up on. As the “Wind of the Spirit” touches the dead things, they begin to live again. The promises that have been put on the backburner, move them to the front.
This new season will expose some of the hidden things. For it will be a season of uncovering that which many have tried to hide. This is especially true in our Government as well as business and, yes, our churches. You will see the face of the enemy up close.
As 2012 was a year of faith that was born out of trust and pain, frustration, 2013 will bring a release of revelation and understanding of My Word that has never been experienced before.
This will release a new level of faith in you and will cause My Word to return to Me. It will be a season of Romans 4;17b “speaking of those things that be not as thought they were and Isaiah 55:11 is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. It is a season where I am releasing My Church to walk in the “Power Gifts—faith-haling and miracles.
This new season will expose some of the hidden things. For it will be a season of uncovering that which many have tried to hide. This is especially true in our Government as well as business and ..yes. Our churches. You will see the face of the enemy up close.
The Lord then directed me to 1st Corinthians 12:28 and said…I have sent the Apostle, the Prophet, the Teacher and now it is the season for miracles and healing. 2013 will be a season of miracles if ….My people ..will believe.
This is the year that Rhema and Logos, the Former and Latter rain and the Apostolic order. I just heard the words “Fall in–Fall in” I knew from the days in the military what it meant. Early each morning at reveille, the Sergeant would come through the barracks and shout ..Fall in..it meant get up and get in formation outside and get ready to march. God is given his marching orders to the Whosoever will. Are you a whosoever?
2013 will bring a season of light, and understanding a season of prosperity and an understanding for those who will seek My face.
The veil is being pulled back and I am calling forth those that I have kept hidden for a time as this. I see Angels being sent forth, moving through the earth and touching the hearts of the ones that have been called for this time and season. Fall in…Fall in The ones that have allowed the Lord to pump revelation and understanding into their hearts. The cry of “Yes, send me Lord, has reached the ears of the King and He is revealing his to the world.
This is the season of “Rhema..spoken word) and Logos (the written Word together which will bring the presence of Jesus , a time of the Former rain (Elijah) and Latter rain (Jesus..love) together. The beginning ..Judgment and love.
We have never seen such …a time as this!

Here is the word the Holy Spirit whispered in my ear:
“This is the Year of Recapture.”
You shall recapture many things that have been seemingly lost this year. This is a year of abounding, abounding grace and blessings; those blessings that you did not capture that were abounding, overtaking you will be recaptured this year. You have sought the kingdom, My Supernatural Dominion and now these things in the natural shall be added to you, not only added but multiplied, multiplied grace.
Thirteen in man’s eyes is superstitious, unlucky, but in the kingdom this is a year of great blessings, provision and increase.
Why does the number 13 give people such a bad case of the heebie-jeebies?
“The number 13 has a number of very old references that tend to be associated with groups of 13 people,” “At the Last Supper in Christian theology, there were 13 dinner guests, so that number is unlucky because Christ was betrayed.
So it was the religious group that gave us this superstition. However, we know differently. The number 13 promise has such a blessing on it what God has promised in his strength.
Later on in research I found: Definition of ‘Recapture’
Recapture is an accounting/investment term
- A condition set by the seller of an asset that gives him/her the right to purchase back some or all of the assets within a certain period of time.
- A situation where an individual must add back a deduction from a previous year to his or her income.
- A stipulation that allows you to buy back your shares at some future point in time, if you wish.
4.For example, when a business sells an asset and must recapture (add back) some of the depreciation.
Synonyms for recapture: get back, reacquire, recover, reclaim, re-collect, recoup, regain, repossess, retake, retrieve
Scriptural references to 13:
(Gen 17:25) And his son Ishmael was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
“The number 13 when it comes to the Jewish culture, this number signifies a turning point from within one’s life, a turning point that indicates increased responsibility and accountability.
When a Jewish boy comes of age at 13-years-old he has become a “bar mitzvah” and is recognized by Jewish tradition as having the same rights as a full grown man. A boy who has become a Bar Mitzvah is now morally and ethically responsible for his decisions and actions.
The Body of Christ shall come into more maturity in this year, more responsible and a greater visibility in the world system.
(1Ki 7:1) And Solomon was thirteen years building his own house. And he finished all his house.
Again the house the Lord is building (us) is coming into completion .(Eph 2:21) In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
(Measurement of the temple: Eze 40:11) And he measured the breadth of the gate-opening, ten cubits. The length of the gate was thirteen cubits.
The woman with an issue of blood had it for 12 years but in the 13th year she walked free from issues. 13 is a time to be done with cycles that are not DONE.
In the New Testament there were 12 disciples but when Judas betrayed…they appointed Matthias …. Matthias which means gift of God or to accomplish. God said forget who betrays you…celebrate the gift of God and be productive … accomplish.
The wall of Jericho fell on the 13th time around…one time each day for 6 and 7 times on the 7th day = 13.
Abraham was 86 when the promise of Isaac was given….. 86+13= 99- 13 is the difference between a promise made and a promise manifested.
The number “13” does not mean “evil,” but rather it is a most powerful God-given promise that will change the world for ever.
Some more aspects of the promise are:
10+3= 13…Ten – Relates to human governments and law. Three – Signifies completion or perfection, and unity.
The number 13 is the difference of what man can do and what God can do.
The number 13 is the number of (new) life, new cycle.
The number 13 promise always brings excitement, hope and desperation for the promise to be fulfilled.
The number 13 promise is always presented in the presence of unfavorable circumstances, though in time, the circumstances will give way to the birth of the promise.
In researching–Always look to Genesis, the seed book:
(Gen 1:12-13) And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day.
This is the 3rd Day: After “two days,” after 2,000 years, He has promised to “revive” us. He is quickening us, restoring us to life and health. “In” (during) the Third Day He has determined to “raise us up.” He has roused us from sleep and empowered us to stand up again.
We are recapturing our inheritance in Him.

This is what I felt I heard for the coming year:
Esther 5: 3 Then the king asked her, “What do you want, Queen
Esther? What is your request? I will give it to you, even if it is half the kingdom!”
I believe that the Lord is asking us what we want in this hour. He’s asking us to let Him know what we want out of this year.
But if the old covenant gave you half of the kingdom, know that I will give you ALL of the kingdom. My desire is simply that you ask. You have not because you ask not, and many have not asked because they feel unworthy to receive more from Me that just basic things.
Some have not believed that I want them to have good things in this life. My kingdom is joy and peace and righteousness, yes. But it is much more- it is the abundance of power in which you need to prosper my Name.
You will go out and make disciples because I have equipped you to do so. I believe God is saying it’s the year of the Queen’s desire. He will make it manifest to us, but we need to carefully check and see what it is that we most desire. (And ask!)

I am calling forth My lamps
That have been hidden out from under bushels
The Light of My Glory and
My Love will shine through you
And many are those that will be drawn
To the Joy of My Salvation
I was seeing those bushels
As being cares of this world
That have been weighing my people down.

I heard “Break Camp”
It’s time to break camp
I kept hearing that till I fell off to sleep
The LORD our God said to us,
“You have stayed long enough at this mountain)
Break camp and advance,
See, I have given you this land.
Go in and take possession (Deut 1:6-8)

Oh, that My Church would understand
You cannot go back to that which was.
For it is a new time, A new season that is coming forth (Ecc.3:1)
And I shall be lifted up, And those that know Me, shall be lifted with Me
For I AM coming to take back what was lost, For I AM the Saviour of the World and none shall stand in My Way to do, what My Father sent Me to do (John 12:32)
Know who you serve – Know your God – Know Me
For I AM the Way, The Light and The Truth (John 14:6)
There will be a split, a Great Divide in the Nation
And there will be a time of Gray where things will not seem clear
You will not stumble or fall, for I AM with you (Dan 2:21)
The World will be chaotic for they do not know Me
But not you, you shall see clearly and know where to go and what to do
You shall no longer have any scales upon your eyes
You will see Me and you will see the path I have laid out for you
There will be a great sound going up into the atmosphere
For with My Voice, My Words being sent up into the air
I shall create and I shall bring forth
All that I have said I would do and no one shall say
Your God lied or that My Word was not true
For I shall bring to pass
ALL that I have said and is written (Isa 55:10-11)
Soon the world will know that there are two kingdoms
And no one will say, I AM has done this or that and wonder
For now they shall know the things done with My Hand
And the things done by the hand of Satan. (Isa 1:1-31)
I AM calling My People Back to Me
I am purifying and I am cleansing – I am pouring and I am filling
By My Hand will you stand and none other (Ezra 7:9-10)
In the Midst of the storms you shall not be overtaken
For if I AM lifted High, you will be lifted with Me (I Peter 1:1-9)
“I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim; each…one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.” And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, ….And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips,…..; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!” Then flew one of the seraphim to me…And he touched my mouth, and said: “Behold…; your guilt is taken away, and your sin forgiven.”
And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”
Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
