This prophetic insight into this year will help prepare the body for what is ahead and allow for the opportunity to align with God in this upcoming season. Three overarching themes are discussed: the Great Unveiling, the reinstatement of the fear of the Lord, and the Great Reset.

They also caution against false teachers and emphasize the importance of love and avoiding accusations. A dream that Christian had is discussed which reveals important messages for the church.

They also discuss the current state of the church and the need for the church to come out of hiding and allow Jesus to teach and lead. The dream also highlights the significance of the school of ministry and the role of worship and deliverance in the coming season. The conversation concludes with a prayer for the body of Christ.Takeaways• The year 2024 will be marked by the Great Unveiling, the reinstatement of the fear of the Lord, and the Great Reset.• Believers can expect supernatural increase and abundance in 2024, but also a time of judgment and shaking.• The body of Christ needs the restoration of the fivefold ministry (apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers) to become a radiant bride.• False teachers and divisive speech should be avoided, and love should be the guiding principle in all interactions.• Believers should focus on making themselves ready for the return of Christ and walking in obedience and faith.
