Prophetic Alignment for 2023

God’s goodness ran after us in 2022 and the best is yet to come!

You are about to be lifted to the next level of living.

You are about to be catapulted to the next dimension of existence.

You have crossed over to take over!

We have crossed over to take over 2023.

Say, “I have crossed over to take over. The devil may not like it but there is nothing he can do about it. I have been destined to cross over and take over”

Welcome to our 2022 into 2023 prophetic positioning in the name of Jesus. This is our time of prophetic positioning where words are released that propels you to your place of destiny. It doesn’t matter who doesn’t like it. It doesn’t matter who doesn’t like what will be released on you. Prophetic words will push you to the place where you need to be. The devil is already in trouble.

Before I begin let me give you a scripture:

Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper (2 Chronicles 20:20b, KJV).

If you believe every word I say to you, then it will work for you because somebody has to say something to somebody. We all believe somebody. Some of you believe CNN. Some of you believe your grandmother. Your life is where it is today because of who you choose to believe and I challenge you today, if you dare believe this man of God like some of you have done, your life cannot remain the same.

Say, “I am ready, to receive, everything, God has for me.”

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert (Isaiah 43:18–19, KJV).

Forget the former things. God says, “I will do a new thing.” But you must forget the old because God is about to do something new.

If you are ready for something new shout, “Amen!”

God said, “Let go of the former. Let go of the old.”

I know you may have some success, but let it go. Don’t look at the past no matter how good or bad the past has been. Don’t look back. God said, “I will do a new thing.” And He added, “I am in a hurry to do it.”

I said, God is in a hurry to do that new thing in your life.

A new day comes with a new thing. A new week comes with a new thing. A new month comes with a new thing. A new year, comes with a new thing just as 2022 came along with opportunities and challenges. Every year is impregnated with opportunities and challenges. Every year is impregnated with good and bad, but for a child of God it all works out for your good especially if you demonstrate your love for God and when you know what the Lord is doing. I said, “when know…”

God is doing something amazing in the lives of His children: Great horizons, great opportunities, great heights to the point that He will make every challenge a stepping stone to a greater height.

You are reading this blog to know what God will do so you can align yourself to the plan of victory in 2023.

God says, “I will do a new thing; and shall ye not know it?”

God says, “You have to know what He is about to do because it is when you know that you will begin to grow and when you stat growing, you will begin to glow.”

The time of your shinning has come! Your shining is directly related to the revelation you have received. The Bible says, “And you shall know the truth and the truth that you know, will make you free (John 8:32).”


Apostle Ese Duke


“I know He is making a way in the wilderness.”

“I know rivers are being created, in the desert.”

God is doing something new.

In Proverbs 29:18, the Bible says,

Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law (Proverbs 29:18, ESV).

This scripture means, when prophetic positioning is not received, people tend to live life out of alignment. But when you know what God says about the future and you walk in line with that word, even hell recognizes that you have gotten a revelation.

A way in the wilderness, and rivers in dry places will be your reality in 2023.

All those who laughed at you, all those who mocked you, in 2022 will see you as a wonder in 2023. They thought it was finished with you; they did not know that God was repackaging you. They thought it was over with you; they did not realize God is rebranding you. He is making you into that wonder, and you shall be a wonder to your generation. God is lifting you above whatever held you down in 2022. Forget the failures. Forget the sickness. No carryovers. You have crossed over without carryovers:

  • No carryover sickness
  • No carryover poverty
  • No carryover disease
  • No carryover lack
  • No carryover anything

You are not carrying over.

Shout, “Yes!”

You have crossed over without carrying over.

I hear in my spirit, “the Egyptians that you saw in 2022, you will see them no more.”

I said, the Egyptians that you saw that tried to take your life, that tried to mess with your destiny. That tried to make a mockery of you. I decree and I declare by the auction of the Holy Ghost, you will see them no more!


Apostle Ese Duke

Shout, “No more. No more! No more!”

And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more forever.

The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. (Exodus 14:13–14, KJV).

I say unto you, Fear not and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will work for you when?

Is it tomorrow?


Yes, fear not and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will work for you TODAY!

For the Egyptians whom you saw in 2022, you will see them no more! I said you will see them NO MORE!

The Lord will fight for you!

I said, The Lord, will fight for you!

Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.

And Israel saw that great work which the Lord did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the Lord, and believed the Lord, and his servant Moses (Exodus 14:30–31, KJV).

What God is about to do will make your enemies so afraid of you. I said they will be afraid of you. When you show up, they will take off because what you carry is too heavy. When God steps in, the evil steps out.

Our God, the Lord of hosts, the almighty God, He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Great I am. The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof, and to His Kingdom there is no end!

The Lord has no beginning. He has no ending. He is the alpha and the Omega.

Say, Amen!

What is about to happen this year:

  • You have to stay in faith
  • You have to stay connected
  • You have to stay in the Lord
  • You have to stay in the Word
  • You have to gird up your loins
  • You have to activate your faith!

As I was getting ready to bring forth this message, the Spirit of the Lord said to me, tell my children, “Gird up your loins, ready yourselves, and be vigilant. Prepare for the things that are to occur in 2023.” 

The Bible tells us, the enemy roams around like a roaring lion looking for whom he may devour. That tells me he cannot devour everybody. He is seeking whom he may devour.


Because the Bible tells us in Psalm 84:11 that God is your sun and your shield.

In this season you are about to step into you have to be strong in faith activate your faith. Don’t let the enemy discourage you in this hour for I hear there are those the enemy has utilized, those whom the enemy has his strings on and some of them are in church. The enemy shall utilize them to discourage and derail the plans that God has spoken forth concerning your life.

God said to tell you, “Incredible faith and obedience will yield amazing blessing both spiritually and naturally.” The Bible says, “Obedience is better than sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22).


Apostle Ese Duke

There are some things the Lord showed me and I am very careful how I say it. This is the time to be watchful. This is the time to be connected to your source.

Say, “Amen.”

I usually do not talk like this. I wish I could not say this but I have to because I saw it. Not once but multiple times and it was too clear.

There is a catastrophic event that is coming on those who are not connected. Those who are not in the fold. Those who are not in the house of the Lord. Those who have no protection. Those who have no shepherd. I saw that all those who were in the vehicle were safe but all those who went away and entered another vehicle all perished when the catastrophic event struck and I saw dead bodies lying all over. I recalled some people and begun looking around thinking “where is this person” I thought they were with me in the vehicle. I began to see that none of those that were connected to the house of God that had a covering over their lives were affected but those with independent spirits that thought they could do what they wanted to do this year began to experience one-time catastrophe. It was not multiple catastrophes, just one but it was revealed multiple times.

What am I saying?

Be in faith. Be in the house, be connected, because the devil does not like you and 2023 you will not be a candidate for his dinner. The Bible says, He is looking for whom he “may” devour, but that is not you.

Many of you know I do not talk like this but I just can’t help it. It was too clear to just let it pass by. So, I must warn you, that for this coming year it is a special year but don’t stay outside of the house of God. Don’t allow anybody, anything, whatever it might be to keep you away from the Lord so when the catastrophe hits it will not hit you.

Say, “I am safe. In the house of the Lord”

“I am safe. No weapon formed against me shall prosper.”

Thank you, Lord, for giving me the grace to release this.

God is opening the windows of heaven.

“This is an hour,” says the Lord, “where I am opening the windows of heaven to pour out onto my children what they need to be equipped with (both spiritual and natural) for the task ahead.”

God said to tell you, He is opening the windows of heaven because we are coming into a big year globally, a crucial year, a year of change and growth, and learning to bear the weight of the task and assignments that The Lord has given to you.

So, every resource you need for 2023, you have it for the mandate.

As I was waiting upon the Lord I heard, “We are coming into a year of the double. That means that there will be so much multiplication. When the heavens are open everything becomes easy.


Apostle Ese Duke

Shout, “easy”

You shall see the incredible. There shall be creative miracles manifesting in 2023.

You shall see them in your life and in our churches.

It is going to be a year to hold on fast on the Word of God. Everything you have learned or received thus far needs to be applied and activated to receive what God has already positioned for you.

This is very, very critical, I hear in my spirit, “No weapon, that is formed against you shall prosper.” He did not say they will not form it.

They can gather, but they must scatter! They will come against you one way and they will flee, seven ways because God is on your side.

No weapon, formed against you shall prosper in 2023.

Say, “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.”

2023, is a year like none other. I saw the heavens open… I saw the heavens open… I saw the Lord pouring out the blessing that we need to fulfil His mandate on earth.

Oh, that You would rend the heavens! That You would come down!

That the mountains might shake at Your presence— As fire burns brushwood, As fire causes water to boil—To make Your name known to Your adversaries, That the nations may tremble at Your presence! When You did awesome things for which we did not look, You came down (Isaiah 64:1–3, NKJV).

When heaven tears open, God comes down in holly visitation that not only affects you but all those around you.

When heaven opens over this assembly or wherever we gather as a family of STBC, there will be manifestation of the supernatural. Open heavens is when God sends the heavens to come hard on your enemies for your sake.

The Bible tells us, the nations would tremble at your presence.

God opens heavens to show His mightiness to your adversaries and to put fear of you in their heart.

In 2023, the enemy shall be so afraid of you that whatever you want they just give it to you.

I said, whatever you want they just give to you because you carry such a presence that where everybody is told no, when you show up it will be a yes.

If you believe shout, “Amen.”

“‘I will make a covenant of peace with them and rid the land of savage beasts so that they may live in the wilderness and sleep in the forests in safety. I will make them and the places surrounding my hill a blessing. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing (Ezekiel 34:25–26, NIV).

The Lord says, “there will be showers of blessing”

Showers of blessing is associated with open heavens

Say, “open heavens.”

Only God has the power to open the heavens. The heavens are open for us in 2023.

We shall experience open heavens!

The Lord said, “There were things that needed to be eliminated in 2022 to make room for what He is bringing to you in 2023”

Do not remember the things or the people that exited your life in 2022. It was all part of the plan of protection and for you to experience the benefit of open heavens in 2023.

In 2023 we will have some phenomenon experience and you will know you are walking under open heavens.

God said:

  • You will have unusual encounters with Him
  • You will have visions
  • You will feel God’s presence
  • You will walk in the supernatural
  • Things will happen effortlessly for you
  • You will receive revelation, finances, miracles, and breakthroughs
  • You will work under peace, rest, favor, and abundance

Yes, God said, you will start seeing visions. When you are under open heaven, you experience visions from heaven. There is no more barrier between the heavens and the earth. You begin to see more clearly what the Lord is doing.

With open heavens you experience or feel God’s presence in a different dimension. You walk in the supernatural and things begin to happen effortlessly.

In this season, nothing shall separate you from your father and His resources.

There shall be no more barriers between the earthly realm and the heavenly realm and all the resources of heaven.

God said, “I have remembered you. The old is gone, the new has come. I have remembered you.”

God has remembered you in this year!


Apostle Ese Duke

  • Where you have been rejected you are now being accepted
  • Where you were looked down on, you are now being looked up to
  • Where you were called a failure, you shall be a success
  • Where things were hard, it shall become easy now
  • Where was tight it shall become easy

This is your year.

Yes, 2023 is your year!

Somebody is about to receive.

Lift up your hands to heaven begin to worship God and give Him praise.

No more barriers. No more hindrances, in the name of Jesus.

Let me give you a few things to set your sail, so you can experience all that God has for you in 2023. Are you ready? Do you know that God’s power is greater than the powers of the enemy? Do you know that you are victorious and there is really nothing the devil can do about it? So, let’s look at what God has made available to us through open Heavens

What you must expect to be a regular occurrence of your life in 2023

With open heaven you will experience:

  1. Outpouring of the Holy Spirit

As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him (Matthew 3:16, NIV).

2. Supernatural Provision

That means provision and blessing.

The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow (Deuteronomy 28:12, NKJV).

You shall be a lender, and not a borrower. That happens under open heavens.

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,

That there may be food in My house,

And try Me now in this,”

Says the Lord of hosts,

“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven

And pour out for you such blessing

That there will not be room enough to receive it. (Malachi 3:10, NKJV).

Those of you who are fighting against tithe you are fighting against your open heaven. Your tithe guarantees your heavens to be open because when you don’t give your tithe the devil will steal your money. The harvest you get from the harvest that you sowed will be eaten by the devil. Wise up!

3. Salvation and Deliverance

“You heavens above, rain down my righteousness;

    let the clouds shower it down.

Let the earth open wide,

    let salvation spring up,

let righteousness flourish with it;

    I, the Lord, have created it (Isaiah 45:8, NIV).

The Lord has created salvation under open heaven

4. Prophetic Revelations

You receive knowledge from God to carry you throughout the journey. We see that in Exodus 24:10

and they saw the God of Israel. And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone, and it was like the very heavens in its clarity. But on the nobles of the children of Israel He did not lay His hand. So they saw God, and they ate and drank (Exodus 24:10–11, NKJV).

Under open heavens you see God. You have revelation of God and His throne.

Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the River Chebar, that the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God (Ezekiel 1:1, NKJV).

Under open heaven you will see visions of God.

5. Angelic activities

Under open heaven you will experience angelic activities in response to God’s command in bringing supernatural answers to prayers.

Your life is changing today by this revelation.

Heaven is open to us in STBC.

Open heaven is our inheritance in 2023 and beyond!

When under open heavens nothing is impossible. Demons flee, disease are healed, even death could not stand on the way of Jesus because Jesus operated under open heaven and you will experience open heaven in 2023.

Heaven’s supernatural resources were made available to Jesus as He prayed and did what He saw the Father doing (John 5:19).

When the veil tore open at Jesus’ crucifixion (Matthew 27:51), the heavens were opened permanently for all who would believe in Him and become children of God, for Jesus Himself is the stairway to heaven. (John 1:51, John 14:6)

As I come to conclusion on this, I appeal to you, this year, the Word of God has to take first place in your life.


Apostle Ese Duke

We are giving you prophetic positioning that lines up with God’s Word so you are not looking for someone to give you a prophetic word. Instead, search the scripture because the Bible says the word of God is a more sure word of prophecy (2 Peter 1:19, KJV). Prophecy given by me or others is less than 2% of all that God has in store for you. Words are loaded in your Bible, if you dare believe them! If you can believe God, nothing shall be impossible.

Say, “Lord, I believe!”

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away (Matthew 24:35).

Don’t let anyone derail you by what they feel or what they think. If it is not in God’s Word, discard it because the year you have entered into is not a time of, he say she said. It is about what does the Word say?

Anybody can say anything, if it is not in the Word of God, discard it because God’s Word becomes the final authority, not gossip from the pit of hell, not how you feal because your feelings can change but God’s Word never changes. You can feel happy today and unhappy the next day but God’s Word never changes. What He says today stands or ever. His Word says, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my Words shall not pass away (Matthew 24:35).”

God’s Word is His bond. If He says it, He will do it. If He says you are blessed, that really means you are blessed. If he says you will be a lender and not a borrower, that means it is so. If it is in His word, that means it is a possibility. If you can find it in His Word, you can believe for His performance. God watches over His Word to perform it.

So, this year, we are going to stick with His word. If His Word said it, you can take it to the bank because results from His Word will cancel every insult. Let them insult you for believing in His Word, when the result begins to manifest, every insult is canceled by result. So, I decree your result is coming to fruition.

Every prophetic Word that God has given to you in line with His Word, will come to pass in the name of Jesus.


Apostle Ese Duke

His Word is what keeps us and makes us stable. It is not what we feel but what He says. You can hold unto His word for ever. Let everything fall apart, His Word never falls apart.

The Bible says, let every man be a liar and let God be true (Romans 3:4). If God said you are healed, you are healed, it doesn’t matter how you feel. If God said you are blessed, you are blessed. It doesn’t matter what your bank account reads.

You may say, “Pastor you don’t understand.” I understand. Once upon a time I was there and I held unto the Word. It did not happen in 2 weeks, a month, 5 years, or 10 years. But when it begins to happen it looks like a dream. They will be accusing you for doing something. They don’t believe God can do something. I held unto the Word of God. What you are seeing here today is because somebody dared believe that God’s Word can come to pass and by the grace of God most of you are going to be accompanying me when we break ground for a new location this year.

Shout, “Double! Double! Double!”

  • Double grace
  • Double anointing
  • Double increase
  • Double provision
  • Double Love
  • Double peace
  • Double joy

Shout, “Double! Double! Double!”

You may be wondering, Apostle why do you talk like that?

Because it works.

I have been talking the Word for many decades, it works. Notice I did not say six months, but decades. It works. The Word works!

Many of you are privileged to see the manifestation of the Word in action. Just believe it.

Say, “The Word works!”

Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them (Isaiah 34:16, KJV).

That Word will not fall to the ground. Once God says it, that settles it.

God did not let Samuels words fall to the ground (1 Samuel 3:19). I choose to believe it and it is working for me. You can believe it also and it shall work for you.

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it (Isaiah 55:10–11, KJV).

When it rains it does not go back. When it snows have you seen snow go back?

God said you are blessed

He said you are prosperous

This coming year you will walk in divine health

Sickness shall not touch your body and if it tries it will die on contact

God said the Word that comes out of His mouth shall not return to Him void. But it shall accomplish that which He pleases. Whatever God says is for is pleasure and because it is for His pleasure it has to come to pass.

Do you believe that?

Let’s pray. Say:

  • In the name of Jesus. I decree, whatever plagued my life in 2022, I left it behind
  • In the name of Jesus, whatever messed with my destiny, I left it behind, In the name of Jesus!
  • This year, is my year, In the name of Jesus!
  • I decree and I declare, no weapon formed against me shall prosper. Any tongue that rises against me in judgment I condemn in the name of Jesus!
  • In the name of Jesus, I decree that the heaven over my head shall not shut. Open NOW! In the name of Jesus!
  • Every of my blessing that is hanging in the heavenlies, I command you to come down now and manifest in the physical. In the name of Jesus!

  • Every satanic bird, flying over my heaven, drop down and die. In the name of Jesus!
  • Every satanic resistance fighting back my prayers in the realm of the heavens. I dislodge you by the fire of the Holy Ghost. In the name of Jesus!
  • In the name of Jesus, I decree and I declare that all of my blessings that have been detained in the heavenly ream, to be released now, in the name of Jesus!
  • Father, expose and destroy every satanic structure, around me and around my family. In the name of Jesus!
  • Every satanic altar, consistently speaking against my open heaven, I command you to catch fire. In the name of Jesus!
  • Every incantation, every enchantment, every divination, made against me, made against my family, made against my ministry, made against my destiny, by my enemies, I render it powerless, over my life. In the name of Jesus!
  • I render, every agenda of the enemy concerning my life to be destroyed, In the name of Jesus!
  • I decree there is no carryovers of any sickness, or disease, into 2023. I have left them behind. In the name of Jesus!
  • This is my year. 2023, is my season to celebrate, to rejoice, effortless victory, sweatless victory
  • 2023, GRACE, GRACE, GRACE shall locate me
  • 2023, Grace, shall elevate me
  • Grace, shall promote me
  • Grace, shall increase me
  • Grace, shall lift me
  • It shall not be by might, it shall not be by power, but by the spirit of Grace. In the name of Jesus!
  • The grace of God shall work for me
  • The grace of God, shall speak for me
  • The grace of God shall catapult me to my place of destiny
  • 2023, is marked with grace
  • Everywhere I go is grace
  • Everywhere I turn is grace
  • In my household, it shall be grace
  • In my business, it shall be grace
  • In my family, it shall be grace
  • Concerning my health, it shall be grace
  • Concerning my finances, it shall be grace
  • Not by labor, but by favor. Not be striving but by favor. There shall be no struggles, no labor but favor
  • Favor all around me
  • Victory all around me
  • Everywhere I go, open heaven over my head
  • Open heaven, over my business
  • Open heaven, over my family
  • Open heaven, over my life
  • Open heaven, over me
  • Open heaven, over STBC
  • Open heaven over my life
  • Open heaven over my ministry

Are you ready?

2023 shall be our year of OPEN HEAVENS!

This is our year of open heavens.

Shout, “Open heavens!”

Everywhere you go heaven is open for you. No hindrance between God and you.

Your heavens are open. Receive it. Believe it. Walk like it, talk like it, think like it, and it will manifest in your life.


Apostle Ese Duke

That is our prophetic positioning. We have crossed over just like that and the Egyptians are dead upon the sea shore. You will see them no more!

Now we have set our sail that this year is our year of open heavens.

If you have experienced open heavens, this year will be even higher dimension.

You will walk in confidence that the heavens are open for you. Don’t talk lack.

Don’t talk sickness. Don’t talk disease. Don’t talk poverty. Only speak abundance, prosperity, divine heath, joy, and peace.

No matter what you see this year, hold unto the Word of God because God’s Word is a more sure word of prophecy. If God says it that settles it.

If you can believe it, God can perform it because He watches over His Word to perform it.

Believe what you have received from the Word of God and by the end of this year you will be among those with a wonderful testimony of the goodness of God.

Shout. “Hallelujah!”

Decree this upon your life:

  • I decree that every prophetic word I have received abide with me
  • As it has been released so shall it be in my life
  • I will have a reason to celebrate, a reason to rejoice, a reason to remain faithful to God because His goodness is unmatched. This year I have entered shall truly be my year of open heavens
  • Everything is working so effortlessly and I will have testimony upon testimony to say, “see what the Lord has done.” That shall be my testimony, “See what the Lord has done.” For the rest of this year, it shall be, “see what the Lord has done!”

Go in peace, experience the double. Double Favor. Double Anointing. Everything around you shall be double beyond your wildest imagination.

As I have decreed so it is. In the name of Jesus!
