2018: Year of the Holy Ghost and Fire
Prophecy delivered by Kenneth Copeland, George Pearsons on November 6, 2017

On Friday, November 3, 2017, the Lord spoke the following words to Brother Copeland concerning the year 2018: “2018 is the Year of the Holy Ghost and fire. The Big 18 for 2018: 9 fruits of the Spirit; 9 gifts of the Spirit.” That time is not just coming, says Brother Copeland. “It’s already here.” But, as His sons and daughters, “we’re going to have spiritual explosions going on throughout 2018—particularly in the areas of holiness and cleansing.”

Video Transcript:

KENNETH: You know, a few days ago we were at home in the kitchen there, and Cindy was showing us the new 2018 calendar and all the pretty pictures and everything, you know. We were looking at all these. It’s a beautiful calendar. And I stopped and I looked at that and the Lord said this. It wasn’t audible.
KENNETH: But it was close. He said, “2018 is the year of the Holy Ghost and fire.” Luke 3:16, “John answered saying unto them, All I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose; he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and fire.” Glory to God.
GEORGE: Praise God.
KENNETH: And then He said, “The big 18 for 2018; 9 fruit of the Spirit; 9 gifts of the Spirit.” Whoa!
GEORGE: Wow! Wow!
KENNETH: Hey, it ain’t coming. It’s already here. Glory to God.
GEORGE: It’s here.
KENNETH: But we’re going to have spiritual explosions going on throughout 2018 in the areas, particularly in the areas of holiness and cleansing. Because let me go back to that again.
KENNETH: And notice what he was talking about there in that scripture in Luke 3:16. “Whose fan” – talking about Jesus – “is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.”
GEORGE: There it is. There it is.
KENNETH: You can’t put His fire out. Now the chaff; what is chaff? Well, chaff is the sticks and the stubble and the hay and stuff. You know, you get through sifting the wheat and so forth, and you got nothing but that trash left. I want all the trash out of my life, George.
GEORGE: Oh absolutely!
KENNETH: Glory to God.
GEORGE: Absolutely. Burn it up.
KENNETH: I’m on fire! You remember the scripture said, you know, He will judge with fire and so forth?
KENNETH: And I shouted out loud one day, “I don’t want to wait till judgment! Set it on fire now! I want to burn it now!”
GEORGE: Praise God! Praise God!
KENNETH: I want to burn all this hay and stubble. I don’t want none of it in my life.
GEORGE: Yeah. Yeah.
KENNETH: Praise God. I don’t want anything to get in the way of the anointing of God in my life.
GEORGE: That’s right.
KENNETH: Hallelujah.
GEORGE: That’s right.
KENNETH: I don’t — (Tongues) Thank you, Jesus. I don’t want anything impeding the fruit of the Spirit —
KENNETH: — or the—
TOGETHER: Gifts of the Spirit.
GEORGE: Oh that’s it. That’s it.
KENNETH: Because without love you ain’t nothing but noise, brother.
GEORGE: Yeah. That’s good.
KENNETH: But with love, whoa! Hallelujah! Come on January!
GEORGE: Father, in the name of Jesus we take hold of this word. 2018: The Year of the Holy Ghost and Fire.
KENNETH: Throughout the United States. Throughout the United States.
GEORGE: Yeah. Yeah.
KENNETH: Throughout Canada. Throughout all of North America.
GEORGE: Yeah. Yeah.
KENNETH: Hallelujah.
GEORGE: And the big 18.
KENNETH: Yes, yes, yes.
GEORGE: The 9 fruit of the Spirit and the 9 gifts of the Spirit flowing through the Church like never before.
KENNETH: Like never before.
GEORGE: Father, we receive it in Jesus’ name.
KENNETH: Yes, we do.
GEORGE: Thank You, Lord.
KENNETH: And we declare boldly without reservation that—
TOGETHER: Jesus is Lord!


On August 11, 1927, Smith Wigglesworth stood in Angelus Temple to preach on preparing for the Second Coming of Christ. He told the audience that liquid fire was consuming him. Then Wigglesworth made this opening statement:

But there will be things that will happen prior to His coming that we shall know. You can tell. I am like one this morning that is moving with a liquid, holy, indispensable, real fire in my bosom, and I know it is burning and the body is not consumed. It is real fire from heaven that is making my utterances come to you to know that He is coming. He is on the way. God is going to help me tell you why you will know. You that have the breath of the Spirit, there is something now moving as I speak. As I speak, this breath of mighty, quickening, moving, changing, desirable power is making you know and it is this alone that is making you know that you will be ready.

1. There must be special preparation for the return of Christ and at least half of all believers will be totally unprepared. We have to see that these days have to come before the Lord can come. There has to be a falling away. I want to speak to you very exactly. All the people which are pressing into and getting ready for this glorious attained place where they shall not be found naked, where they shall be blameless, where they shall be immovable, where they shall be purified by the power of the Word of God, have within them a consciousness of the very presence of God within, changing their very nature and preparing them for a greater thing, and causing them to be ready for translation.

This is the day of purifying. This is the day of holiness. This is the day of separation. This is the day of waking. O God, let us wake today! Let the inner spirit wake into consciousness that God is calling us. There are in the world two classes of believers. There are believers which are disobedient, or I ought to say there are children which are saved by the power of God which are disobedient children. And there are children which are just the same saved by the power of God who all the time are longing to be more obedient.

And we heard the word come rushing, through all over, “new theology” that damnable, devilish, evil power that lived in some of these disobedient children, which in these last days opened the door to the next thing.

2. There will be many Christians who believe that they can do whatever they want and God will look the other way. People are tremendously afraid of this position because they have heard so much on this line: “Oh, you know you are the elect of God. You are sure to be all right.” There have been in England great churches which were laid out upon these things. I thank God that they’re all withered. You will find if you go to England those strong people that used to hold all these things are almost withered out. Why? Because they went on to say whatever you did, if you were elect, you were right. That is wrong. The elect of God are those that are pressing forward.

3. It will be common for preachers to deny the existence of hell. Denying hell prepares the way for antichrist. What? No hell. The devil has always said that “what does Christian Science say?” [Ray says, “We could insert other names here for the times we’re in right now.] No hell, no devil. They are ready for him. The devil has always said no hell, no evil. And these people are preparing, and they do not know it, for the Man of Sin.

4. It is offensive to talk about the blood of Christ. When I spoke about the blood and when I spoke about this infernal thing, the whole place was upset. You be careful when anybody comes to you with a sugar-coated pill or with a slimy tongue. They are always of the devil. The Spirit of the Lord will always deal with truth. These people never deal with truth. They always cover up the truth.

Do you believe it? Who can do it? THE BLOOD CAN DO IT! The blood, the blood, Oh the blood! The blood of the Lamb. The blood of Jesus can do it. Spotless, clean, preserved for God. Give the devil the biggest chase of his life and say these words: “The blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, cleanseth us from all unrighteousness.”

5. The world will look to worship a man and will overlook his faults to get him into power. These people are determined to have a man. They know someone has to come. We know Who He is that is coming. They begin to make a man. So they find a man in India, they polish him up as much as they can, and they make him as—well, in appearance, but you know we are told by the Lord that there is soft clothing that goes onto wolves’ backs.

6. That people believe that certain preachers are of God simply because of their crowds and their buildings. A person said to me, “You see, the Christian Scientists must be right—look at the beautiful buildings. Look at all the people following them.” Yes, everybody can belong to it. You can go to any brother you like, you can go to any theater you like, you can go to any race course you like, you can be mixed up with the rest of the people in your life and still be a Christian Scientist. You can have the devil right and left and anywhere, and still belong to Christian Science.

7. As Churches turn away from the Holy Spirit many believers go to false teachers. The secret of many people going into Christian Science is a barren church that had not the Holy Ghost. Christian Science exists because the churches have a barren place because they haven’t the Holy Ghost. There would be no room for Christian Science if the churches were filled with the Holy Ghost.

8. The last days are a time for the true people of God to engage in extravagant asking. Up to this present time, the Lord’s word is for us, “Hitherto ye have asked nothing.” Surely you people that have been asking great things from God for a long time would be amazed if you entered into it with clear knowledge that it is the Master, it is Jesus, who has such knowledge of the mightiness of the power of the Father, of the joint union with Him, that nothing is impossible for you to ask. Surely it is He only who could say, “Hitherto you have asked nothing.” So God means me to press you another step forward. Begin to believe on extravagant asking, believing that God is pleased when you ask large things.

Oh, how my heart burns when I read these things! May we sanctify the Lord in our hearts and preparing for His soon return.
