The Warrior Bride and Sunflower - Calendar-Word Message

What a surprising calendar-word for 2017!  Today is December 29, 2016 and I just "caught" the word from Above for His bride for this calendar.  The world news is fraught with tension and concern for the United States in its relationship with Russia and Israel and the U.N. as Obama is leaving the White House and Trump is moving in. Yet God is prophesying Heaven's news to His bride through the "Sunflowers" painting-word combined with the "Warrior Bride" painting word (1996).

I received the call to paint sunflowers in 1993 when I received a vision of a heart with a stout, white pipeline stuck on its side pointing up to heaven and heard the Lord say to me," I am pouring out the oil of joy into your heart and the heart of my people. This joy is not of the earth, but purely of heaven." Finally, finally, it is the time for the "Sunflowers" painting-word to be activated alongside the "Warrior Bride" painting-word. Can you imagine how powerful this arrangement is and what a slap in the face of the enemy for the army of God to rise up and shine and glow with the joy of the Lord?  The enemy has relentlessly bullied, intimidated, harassed, mercilessly beaten, tortured, even killed, so many of God's anointed beloved, both young and old, through cancer and other diseases, through inciting war between husband vs wife, parents vs sons and daughters,causing broken hearts and broken minds, through poverty and wars and losses of homes and properties and jobs, and he thought he has silenced us and cut off our legs. Yes, he has done much damage and many hearts are weary and struggling between faith, hope, love and negative mindset of the flesh and the world. But God! In spite of such oppression a remnant of His bride has risen up and is going to war and the Lord wants to send us out with His joy! Joy of Heaven and not of earth! 

This calendar is a word from the Lord to you and me who are the recipients of Psalm 126:

When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, 'The Lord has done great things for them.'' The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Restore our fortunes, O Lord, like streams in the Negev. Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.  He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him." 

The Lord is saying to us, "Thank you for staying on your post, O watchmen on the wall!  Your persistent and vigilant prayers are not in vain. Your prayers are heard. I will pour down the oil of joy from heaven to you. Only you can comprehend this joy. You have gone out weeping, carrying seeds to sow, and you shall return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with you."

I received two Christmas emails a few days ago that clued me into what was coming from the Lord. They are from women who are highly prophetic and who sit on Jesus' lap. One is from my friend Susan in Jerusalem who wrote, "The word I received from the Holy Spirit when the Jewish new year began (we are in the year 5777) was: 'This year you will see the fulfillment of things long awaited for!' I have never felt so excited about the year we are in. I believe it is a word to the Body and not just for me personally. Soon after I received this word, things began to happen..."

The other is from Sally in San Diego, " Jean, as I opened your first email the Lord immediately spoke to me before I read it... this is what He spoke, 'The Government shall rest on His shoulders.'..  Isaiah 9:5-7 says,  'For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult, and cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire. For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness. From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts  will accomplish this...'  Yes, there has been a raging fire but 2017 will be the year of His government being set upon the shoulders of the Lord...and you and many prophetic warriors had fought to bring God's government into place. This is very deep as it is the aligning of the Apostolic and Prophetic that will form the framework of His government.  This is about to occur as never before. I believe 2017 will be the most aligned year ever as the new framework for the Lord will bring stability for God to move in power for His plans and purposes. It will be a year of revealing God's glory. We will be able to advance forward as a result of this beyond many things that have held us back."
