The year 2020, the year of perfect vision

And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

Luke 8:10

I was remembering that last year, just around this time, at a meeting with several friends of mine, I jokingly asked them: -Do you know what the year 2020 has been called? I remember that they gave me several names; of course, none of them coincided with the answer I had, since it was something I had coined, in a humorous way; at the end I explained that because it was the year 2020, it would be called the year of perfect vision: 20/20 vision. At that moment I presented it as something humorous, an occurrence that came to my mind for the moment.

A couple of days ago the phrase came back to my mind again but this time with a greater seriousness, and for the moment I thought, a year ago at this time, did the phrase really come to me as a momentary occurrence, or was God troubling my spirit about the things we would face?

The year 2020 will go down in history as a year loaded with many upheavals, I have not read any article reporting on what this year meant for humanity, but I think that from someone doing so it will highlight that the year 2020 brought social crisis, economic scarcity and death, among other things. Definitely the year 2020 is a turning point, the history of humanity has taken a turn, the question is, where to? and why?

Of course, these ‘convulsions’ of the year 2020 are forms of evaluation of a journalistic vision; but we men and women of faith are not alarmists, we are not impressed by the adversities, since we know from the Scriptures that God can even ‘reveal’ the sovereignty that He has over the earth and all its inhabitants; so, if the year 2020 has to do with ‘perfect vision’, something more than simple misfortunes God wants us to see; the 20/20 vision has to do with the spiritual and prophetic vision of how God evaluates situations, and how He intends for men and women of faith to evaluate situations.

The year began with some pretty hectic situations, the impeachment of President Donald Trump (January 16 – February 5, 2020); it was followed by the alarming news that we are facing a ‘pandemic’, and that it is producing many deaths (March 11); then, in the summer, the six tropical storms and seven hurricanes that directly hit the United States; the two hurricanes that hit Central America; the upsurge of COVID-19; and now, at the end of the year, a rigged election that, according to many testimonies, there has been a deliberate conspiracy to remove Donald Trump and put in his place a person who, because of the way he chose his cabinet, is the continuity of Barack Obama’s government.

What is all this data telling us? What should we see for it? These data are leading us to understand that there are forces of darkness pushing the circumstances and forcing situations to cause stagnation to the prophetic work of the Kingdom on earth, it is a time of prelude to persecution over the work of faith that will rise in a very subtle way through the media, all to make men and women of faith ‘ashamed’ of their faith in Jesus and the prophetic work; I find that there is a similarity between what happened during this year and the form of oppression and stagnation provoked by Tobias and Sambalat to prevent the Jews from rebuilding Jerusalem upon the return from captivity.[1]  The pandemic brought as a direct consequence that many churches were closed for several months, many ministers were not prepared for such a situation and could not understand the transition process to which God is taking us.

In prophetic matters about the role of nations, the book of Daniel opened the way to understand that nations respond to spiritual powers that seek to establish hegemony over entire regions. The year 2019 ended up showing two nations -USA and China- in a commercial struggle. Why the commercial war between the USA and China, only free trade competition? History has taught us that political power is gained in the field of trade,[2] so whoever dominates the market will dominate their competitors politically and economically.

As for the pandemic, is it really a new viral disease, or a genetic manipulation produced in the laboratories? Why did COVID-19 originate in China but has attacked the rest of the countries in the world more? The ongoing trade war between the U.S. and China, which threatened to stall the trade in Chinese products, was diminished precisely by the emergence of COVID-19. If people in China continue to ingest bats and pangolins, which many believe were the cause of the emergence of COVID-19, why haven’t they continued to be infected as they were when the pandemic began? In recent months, even a Chinese intervention in the November 3 election has come to light.

What will we be exposed to in the next few years? The people of faith must learn to live life in Jesus by faith; relying on a vaccine is not the solution to a crisis of faith.

Why is COVID-19’s rebound? Is it a natural curve? In recent months a global operation with a climate background has come to light, which has nothing to do with COVID-19, but has used the initiative of countries to restore lockdowns, to show the need to ‘reform’ the traditional work lifestyle and maintain the online operations that predominated during the time of the lockdown initially decreed by governments.

The operation is called, ‘the great reset’,[3] because of its English name; its slogan reads: “To reset and shape the future we want”. The people behind this operation are extremely influential people, including many rulers of industrialized countries, but surprisingly, Donald Trump does not support this operation. The upsurge in COVID-19 is unnatural; the governments of several industrialized countries lifted health measures early to ‘expose’ the population to greater contagion, and then forced the reintroduction of lockdowns to extend the online form of work that had been in place since March.

Why do they want to remove Donald Trump from the presidency of the USA? Is there a conspiracy in the world behind all these events? Donald Trump is a threat to this operation ‘green new deal’, it is not just a political party and part of the population that does not tolerate him; Donald Trump got more votes on November 3rd than any other previous president in time for re-election, so it is not for lack of sympathy that they are looking to remove him from the presidency. The operation of November 3rd came about as a plan B of not prevailing impeachment against him, this operation of electoral fraud was planned with enough time; if you check the text in Esther’s book about the conspiracy of Haman son of Amadatha Agageo to exterminate the Jews, you will see that the conspiracy operation was done twelve months in advance.[4]

Where is God in all this? The year 2020 is about to end, and when the clocks of the whole world strike twelve one minutes on December 31st, and we have entered the year 2021, we will begin to see God’s supernatural intervention on all this work of darkness that man has contributed to stop the prophetic advance of the Kingdom on earth, because there is time for everything. All this that is happening worldwide is only a warning of the soon appearance of the Antichrist, and of which many men and women of faith are not prepared to resist.

There is no doubt that the year 2020 has been a different year, but everything that has happened should not go unnoticed, among it, above all, the replacement of Donald Trump; the extraordinary amount of tropical storms and hurricanes that hit the nation during the year should be a warning about what they are exposing themselves to if Donald Trump is removed from the presidency.

Prophetically speaking, the year 2020 is a pivotal year, there is a turn in the way God will be delivering prophetic Revelation as part of the signs of the times, it is not only about ‘natural’ events but, above all, the course of action that will be developing in the nations; the nations of the world will be intervening directly by the hand of God, under this vision should be understood the hurricanes over Central America.

The year 2020 is a year of prudent and foolish virgins,[5] it is the year where the difference of the spiritual condition of each one is established; and we begin to see this with the arrival of the pandemic and the closing of the temples because of the lockdown, many believers were confronted in their faith without being able to understand or explain if this came from God or was a product of the devil. As the fatuous virgins were unable to move on to the next phase of the operation for which they were chosen, many ministries and congregations were left on the road without the option of restructuring.

The month of January will be a month of spiritual upheaval, it will bring much more confusion than what COVID-19 brought about in terms of faith; many will succumb, but others will be affirmed, and this is the work of the Spirit of Truth, that the Word established by the Lord may be fulfilled: Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice.
