As I was praying and seeking God’s heart about what He wanted to say about 2021. I have to admit it was tough to tune-in and hear. There is a lot of chatter and noise in the spiritual realm right now. More than most years, but I know God’s heart is to encourage and shine a light into the darkness. I know His character and nature is to give HOPE for the future.  God is always speaking. We must press in – silence the noise – still the chaos and quietly listen for Him to speak.


The word He gave me to release to the Church – His Ecclesia – His Bride. It is exciting. It’s Hope-filled It’s encouraging, and it is also a reprimand with a warning. Truthfully, I’ve not had one quite like this.  First, He gave me a word of warning/caution and then He followed it up with a word of hope and encouragement.



2021 ~ A Year of Awakening  & Freedom

by Debbie Kitterman

Part 1

I heard Him say, “Church, I have this against you”…. He took me to Revelation 3, and two of the churches. Sardis and Laodicea. Sardis is the  church of individuals who have escaped religious bondage on their journey to Christlikeness (Rev 3 – TPT commentary). And Laodicea is known as the church of the people’s rights – human rights and self-righteousness (we must surrender our rights to Christ). (Rev 3 – TPT commentary)


“I have this against you:

You have forsaken your first love. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first, in LOVE (Rev 2:4-5). You have a reputation for being alive but you’re really dead (Rev 3:1b). Wake up! Strengthen all that remains before it dies (Rev 3: 2). Your works are not perfect in My Sight. Remember all you’ve received and heard. Hold fast to it and repent! IF you continue to slumber you will miss when I come (Rev3:3). You are neither hot nor cold, but lukewarm. So, I will spit you from My mouth (Rev 3:16). Neither frozen in apathy or fevered with passion So repent and pursue what is right! (Rev 3:19).

The time is now, the suddenly is here, embrace the reset, embrace the new! It’s time to take action. (Is 43:19)



2021 ~ A Year of Awakening  & Freedom 

Part 2


This year is to be a year of inaction to action and yes even reaction.  Reaction to move you from inaction to action.


This is a year of positioning and repositioning.


It’s a year of restitution, restoration, resurrection, and revisioning. (Joel 2:25-26)


It’s a year of awakening and a time of action. It’s a year of choices so get ready. Get ready. Be prepared. Make time and make more room for God.


Church it’s time for you to Awaken from your slumber (Rom 13:11) It’s time to rise and shine (Is 60; Matt 5:16; Matt 13:43). Awaken and Arise (Eph 5:14). Step into the fullness of this New Season God has for you, His beloved bride.


Don’t miss this moment. Arise warriors of God and ready yourself for the reset which has begun. (Joel 3:9). Don’t withdraw. Don’t straddle the line but be strong Church, His Bride! (Matt 25:1-13).


Get ready – the season of “the suddenly” is here (Psalm 147:15; Is 42:13-14; Is 48:3).



2021 will be a time of resurrection and revisioning, restitution and restoration.  The slate is being wiped clean, recompense is coming, and renewal is here.  Yield yourself and make yourself ready to receive!


In 2021, God will strategically place people in new positions and places. He will be repositioning others. Suddenly moments usher in change – rest and embrace what God is doing!


God is strengthening and fortifying His alliances with you.

He is strengthening and building great faith and unity in the land.

He is strengthening your passion and fervor for Him.

He is strengthening your loyalty.

He is strengthening your trust.

He is strengthening your faith

He is strengthening your peace.



The Lord then showed me a beautiful picture of rich, lush green rolling hills with a stream flowing gently down. “Lord, what is this? Why are you showing me this?” I asked.


I had an overwhelming sense of rest and peace. Then I heard the Lord say, “Psalm 23”


“Yes, Lord, but what specifically about Psalm 23?”


This was His reply:

For in this season of 2021, I will teach My church what it really means to be and live as a Psalm 23 people. Not just one verse or a part of, but the entire portion of Scripture.


For I the Lord Am the Good Shepherd (Jn 10:11). I Am the Lion of Judah (rev 5:5). I AM the Lamb who was slain for you(Jn 1:29), and I AM the Resurrected King (Jn 11:25) who will return for you!


Now Arise and Awaken and slumber NO MORE!  Release your Roar – Release My Roar. The Roar of My Justice – My Righteousness and My Glory will invade the land. (Joel 3:16) Come My Beloved, prepare and Make yourself ready. Do not miss the minute or hour that is at hand. (Song of Solomon 2:10)





Rest in His Embrace & Embrace His plan

Awaken to God’s truth and step into true freedom. The Freedom that only comes from God! Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is FREEDOM! (2 Cor 3:16-17)

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord




Ephesians 5:14 This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on 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 wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.

Joel 2:25-26 I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—the great locust and the young locust,
the other locusts and the locust swarm—my great army that I sent among you. You will have plenty to eat, until you are full,
and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed.

Isaiah 48:3  I foretold the former things long ago, my mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.

Romans 13:11 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.

Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Matthew 13:43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear.

Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

Mark 13:35-37 “Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’”

Matthew 25:1-13 Parable of 10 Virgins

“At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. “At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’  “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’

 “‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’

 “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.

 “Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’

“But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’

 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.

Psalm 147:15 “He sends forth His command to the earth; His word runs very swiftly.”

Isaiah 42:13-14 “The LORD will go forth like a warrior, He will arouse His zeal like a man of war. He will utter a shout, yes; He will raise a war cry. He will prevail against His enemies. ‘I have kept silent for a long time, I have kept still and restrained Myself. Now like a woman in labor I will groan, I will both gasp and pant.’”

Joel 3:9 Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare for war! Rouse the warriors! Let all the fighting men draw near and attack.

Joel 3:16 The Lord roars from Zion, and utters his voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earthquake. But the Lord is a refuge to his people, a stronghold to the people of Israel.

Song of Solomon 2:10 My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me.

John 10:11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.

Rev 5:5 Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”

John 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

John 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;

Episode #91  ~ 2021 A Year of Awakening & Freedom

Every year, I (Debbie)  ask the Lord what He wants to speak about the year to come for the Body of Christ and also for me personally. The word that I am going to share today is what He gave me for the Church at large.


As I was praying and seeking God’s heart about what He wanted to say about 2021. I have to admit it was tough to tune-in and hear. There is a lot of chatter and noise in the spiritual realm right now. More than most years, but I know God’s heart is to encourage and shine a light into the darkness.
