Prophetic Word: Vision: 'Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin,' 'The Writing Is on the Wall
A few weeks ago, I was caught up in a very clear vision where I saw the hand of God extending His finger, and He began to write something on a wall.

Then the Lord spoke to me in my spirit man: MENE MENE TEKEL UPHARSIN, "The writing is on the wall!"

"Then from his presence the hand was sent, and this writing was inscribed. And this is the writing that was inscribed: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, and PARSIN. This is the interpretation of the matter: MENE, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; TEKEL, you have been weighed in the balances and found wanting; PERES, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians" (Dan. 5:24-28, ESV).
Bill Hamon Prophesies for 2022: The Lord Says, 'I Am Coming to Settle Accounts'

At the beginning of every year, Elizabeth Tiam Fook of International Young Prophets hosts a number of prophets on social media to share what God is saying for the year. For "What is God Saying for 2022," Tiam Fook hosted Bishop Bill Hamon, Patricia King, Barbara Yoder, Kim Owens, Jamie Galloway and Chazdon Strickland.

Opening the prophetic livestream, the first guest, Kim Owens, said, "The Lord illuminated to me the phrase, 'Great authority comes to the prepared ones.' Esther went into great preparation and then the authority was handed to her. The story of Esther has come alive for me especially as we moved into 2022, for such as this. And 22 means 'governmental authority birthed through prayer.'"

Kim continued, saying, "Grace is coming for the prepared ones as they walk into a year of immense harvest and revival resulting in sustained transformation and reformation. But we cannot skip the preparation process, which is perpetual."

The faith-based reality show Bringing Up Bates has been canceled by UPtv just ahead of its 11th season.

"We will not be premiering Bringing Up Bates Season 11 on UPtv as planned as we will be focusing our programming in 2022 on movies and a new scripted series to be announced soon," UPtv said in a statement.

Hospital Denies Unvaxxed Young Dad a Heart Transplant

A hospital in Boston is blocking a man from receiving a necessary heart transplant because he has not been vaccinated against COVID-19.

David Ferguson told WBZ-TV his 31-year-old son D.J. has "gone to the edge of death to stick to his guns and he's been pushed to the limit," revealing Brigham and Women's Hospital has barred him from receiving the transplant he needs.

D.J., a father of two, was reportedly at the top of the list to receive a heart transplant—until it was discovered he does not have, nor does he intend to receive, a COVID-19 inoculation.
