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.”
Watch the video above (or read the video transcript below) to hear Brother Copeland’s entire comments.
Video Transcript:
KENNETH: You know, a few days ago we were at home in the kitchen there, and the — you know, the — 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!

The following was taken out of the New Living Translation study Bible:

Galatians 5:19–21 Commentary
The works of the flesh may be categorized as sexual sins (v 19), sins connected with pagan religion (the first two of v. 20), sins of temper (the next nine), and sins of drunkenness (the last two).

Galatians 5:22–23 Commentary
These virtues are characterized as fruit in contrast to “works.” Only the Holy Spirit can produce them, and not our own efforts. Another contrast is that, whereas the works of the flesh are plural, the fruit of the Spirit is one and indivisible. When the Spirit fully controls the life of a believer, He produces all of these graces. The first three concern our attitude toward God, the second triad deals with social relationships, and the third group describes principles that guide a Christian’s conduct.

Kingdom Dynamics Galatians 5:16–26
A New Kind of Person

The goal for a follower of Jesus is to walk in both the power and the character of the kingdom. God made His power and authority available to produce a different kind of lifestyle in the believer – one that attracts others by its light in contrast to the darkness of the world. And like salt, the lives of believers are supposed to make a difference in the world around them (Matt 5:13–16).

Kingdom Dynamics Galatians 5:16–25
Lust of the Flesh

“Lust” (“desire” or “passion,” Greek epithumia), is the word from the Greek word thumos, from which “thermos” and “thermostat” are derived. These ideas combine to indicate a “temperature” that may rise unbridled, calling for some means to regulate and direct passion toward proper investments rather than carnal ones. Because the flesh desires to be ratified (sanctioned or confirmed), gratified (pleasured or pleased), and satisfied (satiated or filled full, maximized), believers must find the appropriate “means” of regulating and directing all of our passions. This text reveals that the Holy Spirit will 1) enable warfare against self –indulgent carnality (vv. 16–18); 2) give discernment regarding what is unworthy (vv. 19–21); and 3) bring growth in character (vv. 22, 23) and a readiness to live as ones dead to ourselves but alive to Christ through His cross and resurrection (vv. 24, 25).

(Rom 12:2/2 Cor. 12:9) J.W.H., ed.

Scripture Focus…

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. (2) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
(Romans 12:1–2 KJV)
