The Year of FAITH
This is an excerpt from Jane’s blog, The Year of Faith.
Together, we greet the new year, 2019. The number nineteen is the number of FAITH!!
I have sensed the Lord saying to me that in 2019 we will see an increase in both light and darkness. Each will be more pronounced. The light will shine brightly and the darkness will become more dense. I also sense there will be something serious occurring in the United States this next year, but we are to guard our hearts against fear. He is with us and is increasing the territory under our feet.
Just keep walking forward in both alignment and authority; alignment with Heaven and with each other. The increased authority will flow out of increased relationship. Walk in faith. Explore faith. Let faith increase.
I close with this word from Romans 1:17, “The just shall live by faith!”
This is a season of rising in faith, which means there will also be things in our lives that cause our faith to grow. I can see you standing taller from here!
- For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” – Romans 1:16-17
- Declare that faith is enlarging in us as we carry the righteousness of Christ to propel the Kingdom forward.
- Proclaim the power of God in the gospel of Christ to empower believers and to draw people into His Kingdom.
- Declare, “I will walk forward in alignment and authority. I walk in alignment with Heaven and with the Body of Christ. I step into increased authority flowing out of increased relationship. I walk in faith! I live by faith!”
God Has Given You Air Supremacy! Heaven to Earth Declarations to Propel the Kingdom Forward
The apostolic, prophetic, praying church around the world has now established air supremacy over the enemy. You have air supremacy! Now go deal with the enemy and relentlessly drop “bombs” from the Heavenlies on him until he is no longer able to resist you. – Dutch Sheets at the Aglow Jubilee Conference.
In aerial warfare, air supremacy is the highest level of dominance when one side holds complete control of the skies. God has given us this domination over the works of the darkness in the earth. Decree the Kingdom of Heaven into the nations! Drop spiritual “bombs” that defeat the works of darkness on earth.
Air Supremacy Declarations for Harvest

Crush Chaos and Take Mountains
