2016 Prophetic Word: Minister Kristopher R. Kotch
Once again, just as 2015, I hear very similar scenarios for 2016. In 2015 I heard the European economy, which was artificially propped up, would correct. This has happened. The Euro dollar had a bad year. 2016 will be even worse. The European Union will try to minimize the impact but it won’t work. The cultural and financial burden of the refugee situation as already evident will backfire in a big way. Along with virulent anti-Semitism we will see even more hatred toward Christians across the globe. Islam has already destabilized the Middle East and Europe and will continue to try and destabilize the west. I see many in the west standing against this. More people will begin to see the totalitarian political system of Islam for what it is and resist it like Nazism, communism and Japanese imperialism.
As in my word for 2015, Russia has caused much trouble in the world. This will continue. China will also continue to buy influence all over the world. The number of financially troubled nations that will “sell their soul” to China will increase. Even though China appears financially sound it isn’t. Because of this many sorrows will start with the nations who thought they were being bailed out. The deterioration of race relation in America that occurred last year will intensify, but many in the ethnic communities will see the darkness behind it and stand against it. In the United States there will be a falling away of many Christians from sound biblical doctrine. Compromise, justification and self-centeredness will be the flavor of the day. Mark 13:22. Not is all lost, The Lord will move where there is faith among his people. The harvest cannot be stopped.
John 16:33 NKJ “These things I have spoken to you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
Then and Now
In July of 1977, in Kansas City, a prophetic word was sounded proclaiming “mourn and weep for the body of my Son is broken.” Today in 2016 the “Body” remains broken. The body, His church, seems more broken than ever before. If our eyes witness the severity of that brokenness, we could be weak at best.
There are many foreign camps in America’s church today. Some camps have blatantly watered-down the Gospel of truth while others have blended into the world system for the advantage of economics, others proclaim that murder of the unborn is acceptable, some accepting homosexual men and lesbian women into the priesthood. These and countless sins of pride are all mockeries of God’s truth. The body most certainly is broken. There is injustice, immorality and idolatry rampant in the land. It’s as if one is living on the Plain of Dura (Dan. 3:1), it’s rebellion against the living God.
But God will not be mocked. There already is a price being exacted for this rebellion. The pay-back is in motion. I believe it began in November of 1992 the day our National elections when the electorate sacrificed the spiritual for the carnal.
Scripture is very clear about God’s wrath falling on a nation for its idolatry. In the first chapter of Lamentations we read “The Lord has caused her (Jerusalem) grief because of the multitude of her transgressions. Jerusalem sinned greatly therefore she has become an unclean thing. Her uncleanness was in her skirts…she did not consider her future therefore she has fallen astonishingly.”
When personal pleasure rather than Godly commitment becomes the American standard of living purging must occur.. We are living in a time when God’s favor is about to be removed from his church and this nation...removed because his church and this nation have forsaken the Lord and substituted the temporal for the eternal.
What will the outcome be? If there is no personal or corporate repentance throughout the land, if there is no turning back to our first love, we will, without doubt, be witnesses to the wrath of God almighty who will deal with his people with justice and a vengeance. It will come at a time when it will be inconvenient for many. The signs are clear. “Behold your God.”

Trees along the River
I saw many trees growing along the bank of a large river. The trees were fresh and green, very fruitful, displaying different types of fruit, flowers and even nuts. The river was clear and sparkling. Many people waded into the river dressed in white, happy, smiling, joyful and speaking the name of Jesus. I could see the Holy Spirit moving among them in the form of a young blond-haired man. He was touching them and they were manifesting the power of God in many forms as well as using the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
People were coming into the river that were sick, lonely, depressed, lame and dying. Some were even carrying the dead. As those in white began touching and ministering to them they were completely changed, brought back to life and healed.
I then saw sections of the water that was becoming muddy. The Holy Spirit told me the water was becoming dirty because of sin in the body. The apostasy of gifts and those who take the liberty and license, calling it grace and freedom, but this grace is grace that has been compromised by the flesh. The Holy Spirit then said there is no way at this time to remove this or we may hinder the gifts and the power of God. It is not yet time to separate the wheat from the chaff. Where sin abounds His grace abounds even more.
I also realized the muddy water affected the trees. Some had lost their brilliance. Some had decayed fruit and dead flowers and yet there was still great light and much good fruit.

Flames of Fire: A Prophetic Word
The battle that wages in the heavens goes on, building momentum as we sense the anger and hatred by the power of the evil as it tries it’s best to stop the move of God. Nearly eight years ago the Holy Spirit had spoken a word through me, it came in a vision. It was a picture of our country America, east to west and north to south. In this vision there were small flames of fire springing up all across this nation. I see that being fulfilled at this time as we have personally experienced, heard and seen the fire of the Holy Spirit occurring all over America…the move of the Holy Spirit setting off explosions of his power in a variety of ways, in a variety of churches. The Holy Spirit recently revealed to me His magnificent presence as he stands ready and waiting to move in a way that He has spoken about many times in many places on the earth and through many people. He is going to move like he has never moved before . . . in ways that he has never used, ways that will surprise us. He will continue to us small churches and many unknown saints of God. He has shown me a huge ball of fire. He is standing directly next to it...it is motionless but burning brightly. My immediate impression is that it is building momentum…waiting and building and waiting. Then at the precise moment the Lord will release it and we will see His unleashed power that no one could comprehend at this time.
There are a number of, scripture verses in confirmation of this word. Jeremiah 7:23... “But I gave them this command... obey me and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in all the ways I command you that it may go well with you.” Isaiah 42:9... “See the former things have taken place and new things I declare . . . before they spring into being I announce them to you.” Isaiah 43:19 “See, I am doing a new thing. Now it springs up...do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”
Are we not allowing him to prepare us... are we making ready to move at a moment’s notice. Are we responding to the wake-up call? Listen, observe, and be alert. Watch closely, don’t be deceived. God is on the move and it is the Kingdom of God that is the goal. Our cry is . . . give us souls for our inheritance as we march into battle. Let the sick be healed, let the blind see, the deaf hear and the broken hearted be healed as the prisoners are set free.

Prophetic Words 2017
Prophetic Word: Pastor Mary Ann Kotch
2016 is going to usher in horrendous trials to America and countless other nations. Suffering will be tripled for individuals and groups as well as churches in the body of Christ that have succumbed to political and world views. The doors were opened because of the decisions of some ungodly American leaders. Many eyes have been blinded to Gods truth and His written word. In Romans 12:2 we are told “Do not be confirmed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind that by testing you may discern what the will of God is” Gods ways have been forgotten as man follows his own agendas and other men in place of God.
The Lord has shown me a black circle, like cloud, surrounding America. Inside of the circle I see sparks of lightening-like light infiltrating some areas of the country. Black symbolizes darkness, the darkness of the demonic realm. The sparks of lightening are signs of the light of Christ that is within some areas of this country. There will always remain a remnant. I sense a strong presence of the Lord that is assuring me that those who are truly committed to Him and His truth will be protected by His Holy Spirit.
I was then directed to Isaiah 5:20-21 ” Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. “Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and prudent in their own sight” I have seen tears’ flowing from the eyes of Jesus as His love is so great for all of the earth and mankind who He has created. He says He will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Him. Isaiah 26:3
I was filled with the hunger of God, the hunger He has, to cover America and the entire world with His glory. This glory will only come, “if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek His face and turn from their wicked ways. Then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2Chronicles 2:14
Early one morning I was inspired by the Lord while praying for America. The Lord told me that He will be instrumental in putting a Godly man in the white house in 2016. That Sunday morning this scripture was read, Isaiah 22:15-23. It was a confirmation for me concerning the word the Lord spoke to me that morning. It concerns the judgement of Shebna a poor leader whom God replaced with His servant, Eliakim, a Godly leader. God is good and His love is everlasting. Always keep in mind that we live in the world but are not to be of the world and its ways.
There are two prophetic words given to me at other times that are relevant to 2016. They are titled "Then and Now" and "Trees Along the River" They can be read on dreamlab7.com)
Prophetic Word 2017 Rev. Mary Ann Kotch
For the first time in a while I awoke in the morning and sensed very strongly the awesome light surrounding the throne of God. Some days later the Lord showed me a dark cloud that began fading into a brighter covering emitting from the finger of the Creator. I then sensed a type of simmering that was flowing through my entire being, especially my head. The Holy Spirit said this was a sign that as the minds of God’s children are renewed His light will dissipate the darkness that has become so strong surrounding not just them, but the entire world. The dark situational surroundings are like that during the times of Noah many years ago. I then saw God the Father rising from His throne in anticipation waiting to pour out his power on all men. For some it will be a judgment call. For those who have continued to stand strong and walk the narrow road that was assigned by divine design there will be the glory of God that has never been experienced before, at any time.
I then saw sparks of fire shooting from the eyes of God that were directed toward the government and a number of leaders. But then the fire changed to a soft glow as I heard the words “continue to pray” and situations will begin to change. I have placed in leadership some with divinely inspired wisdom. In a strong loud voice I heard; “I will not allow my chosen people to be trampled on. Many of children have endured suffering, trials and testing that will slowly begin the change little-by-little as they receive more of my anointing and heavenly power that I have held back for such a time as this.” “Although there will be difficult times be encouraged, don’t lose heart. I have been with you silently at times but I have always been with you. I am in control and always will be. Now is the time to listen and look closely. I will impart upon whoever desires that heavenly gift of discerning of spirits. Move with me. Put your thoughts, desires and wants aside. As you move in obedience to my directions you will see and experience me as never before. My plan for you and the entire world is the one and only way. I will lift my obedient children higher and higher. My glory will begin to shine as never before. I am Lord. I am the only God. My written word is your guide. It is through my Word you will receive revelation that will bring you closer to me. Search, ask, seek, study and I will reveal and teach. Do not allow the ways of man or the world influence you. I am the only way.”
Prophetic Word 2017 Rev.Kristopher R. Kotch
The New Year will be another very difficult year on a global scale. Even though things will improve in the United States with a new administration it still won't be easy. The spiritual pushback against this nation will be intense. The darkness that has been driving globalism has been disturbed…like poking into a hornet’s nest.
Christians from all different denominations who voted according to biblical principles will experience blessing and those that did not will be in for hardship. Along those lines, those who have stood with Israel will be blessed and those who did not will pay a price. Russia will back off on its hostility toward America (this does not mean they are our friend) and simultaneously push for more control in their region.
The Syrian war will seemingly slow down, but watch Turkey; they (Russia) will try and fill any void in this region. For years The Lord has been warning me concerning Turkey, the geographic area of biblical Asia Minor. Turkey is the key to much of the end time events. Also, the ancient Godly spiritual wells that flowed in Asia Minor will begin to flow once again. There is still an open heaven in that region.
2017 Things yet to Come Rev. Stephen M. Kotch
What I’m about to share isn’t a specific prophetic word in the truest sense. Nevertheless the subject I’m about to mention has been spiritually disquieting…so-much-so that I am seriously disposed to include it as part of this newsletter.
Christians continue to be the most persecuted religious faction throughout the world. Millions are prevented from practicing their faith. This hostile environment ranges from beatings, physical torture, imprisonment, rape, slavery and death. The situation is most dire in the Middle East but has spread significantly to Africa and Asia. Alarming statistics say Christians in no less than 60 countries face some form of persecution from their governments simply because they are Christian. Islamic terror groups have been listed as the main force responsible for Christian persecution. While persecution remains most evident today in foreign lands its menacing tentacles will eventually cross the waters into America. One day there will be costly confrontations between Christians and Muslims. That is inevitable since Christianity is diametrically opposed to the tenants of Muslim beliefs.
Regardless of an uncertain future I look to the promises found in Holy Scripture that says “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
2 Corinthians 4:8-9, 18
Prophetic Word: Pastor Stephen M. Kotch
During the weeks prior to the Christmas celebrations the Holy Spirit was speaking to me about future happenings that will be occurring in the coming months and years. While I hesitate to box them into the gloom-and-doom categories I do believe, with everything that has been witnessed during the most recent past, what I’m about to share bears attention.
Within the span of the next five years, possibly seven years, there will be serious open conflict in America that will occur between factions espousing Judeo Christian beliefs and that of Islam because the one-and-only true God has been forsaken. Its beginnings have already taken root. Many will suffer hardship and there will be caualties. The evidence is plain to see. Dark veils of complacency and political correctness in high government places have condoned, advanced and clouded real values of truth, justice, honesty, integrity and decency that has resulted in the pursuit of personal gain and, above all, false gods.
In Jeremiah 13:25-27 the Lord says “Because you have forgotten me and trusted in false gods, I will pull up your skirts over your face that your shame may be seen.” Shepherds too have prostituted the Word and their calling to suit personal gain and acceptance. They speak of clouds but are barren of rain…they speak of harvest with no fruit. There will be a high price to pay for their actions. “The Lord says who is like
ho can challenge me?” “And what shepherd can stand against me?” After this period of turmoil a force bearing the banner of the cross will emerge which will become the point of a spear, forged and anchored in the truth of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that will pierce the walls of pride, injustice and arrogance tearing open the way for holy restoration.
