A Prophetic Recall is Going Out This Christmas

Today, I believe God is encouraging those of you who are praying for loved ones and for others He has placed on your heart. Your prayer is powerful!
There is an anointing coming upon traditional Christmas Carols.

At the sound of those old melodies and words, a prophetic recall is going out to those who have walked away from God.

Hearts are being stirred.

There is a pull back to worship, as people hear words like:
‘Come and worship,
Come and worship,
Worship Christ, the newborn King!’ [1]

The Holy Spirit is also moving on those who have never known Jesus. Suddenly, words they have never considered before, now have a magnetic pull upon them:
‘Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled’ [2]

Now is the time to pray.

Declare that the airwaves this Christmas season are going to be filled with a Heavenly sound.

Let there be a freshly anointed sound filling the streets, the malls, homes and even places of transport.


A Twofold Heavenly Celebration

The Bible tells us that this side of eternity there are two causes of singing and celebration in Heaven. One is the praise and worship of our Almighty and Holy God.

And the second, is the one Jesus mentioned when He said, “In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” (Luke 15:10, NIV)

When those two Heavenly celebrations are combined, we hear, ‘Glory to God! Salvation is here!’

Jesus’ birth was announced with a Heavenly sound, as a crowd of angels appeared to shepherds keeping watch in the fields.

It was the very first time this twofold Heavenly celebration was heard:

‘Glory to God! Salvation is here!’

We read, ‘Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” (Luke 2:13-14, NIV)


A Homecoming Call is Going Out

An encounter with God’s glory—the atmosphere of Heaven—will stir up our longing for Heaven, because that is our home and destination. Even an unsaved person will experience this ‘homesickness’ just as the prodigal of Jesus’ parable did in Luke 15.

As the writer to Ecclesiastes says, ‘He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart…’ (Ecc 3:11a, NIV)

The father in Jesus’ parable threw a party in His home, to share his joy with everyone. There was singing, dancing and music, and the sound was carried from the house out into the fields. (Luke 15:24-25)

When people who don’t know Jesus, or who once knew Him, encounter the Spirit’s anointing carried in a sound, something happens.[3]

We can bring the atmosphere of Heaven to earth. It comes as we make the Father’s House our address. It comes as we pray.

Pray while you’re working, pray while you’re preparing and traveling. See with the eye of faith, God’s Presence touching hearts as the melodies and words of Christmas are going out on the airwaves.

‘O come all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels’ [4]

See by faith, people stirred by a sound; drawn to consider the goodness of God as they hear the invitation of Christmas.

  1. I received a prophetic word from a prophetess by the name of Helen Velonis from Mpls. MN. twenty six years ago. She now has passed away. She prophesied to me that
    “God has a financial blessing for you. Go home and start praising God now because it will come in by the truck loads”. It is now twenty six years and no truck loads have not come in. What am I doing wrong? Why hasn’t it manifested. Could you please give me revelation knowledge on this please? Thank you.

  2. Thank you very much for your mail. Through the Holy Spirit , LOVE of God has been poured out in our Hearts. So many will be pulled out from darkness to light through the DIVINE LOVE OF JESUS. Amen

  3. That’s amazing confirmation!! I had the same revelation as I attended a Seattle Symphony Christmas Concert and heard the words of some of our traditional Christian carols. First of all, I was surprised to hear them at all. As you know, Seattle is one of the bastions of progressive thought and action in the U.S.A., and least churched. And I prayed and interceded for all the seniors there to have their eyes, ears, hearts, and minds opened again to the words they were singing and had probably sung when they were young and not misled, and for all those young people hearing them for perhaps the first time, and thanking God that these particular songs were being played. We will attend the Symphony’s Messiah next week and continue to pray. Thank you for putting our this word. Many blessings to you and our brothers and sisters in Australia. We hope to visit you one day in the future.

    • Hello Catherine, it’s so good to hear those carols and hymns are being sung, I didn’t know that about Seattle, and pray with you for the Spirit to touch that great city. I visited my Mum when she lived in Clarkston, Washington many years ago and our flights took us via Seattle, I remember the scenery being amazing. <3

  4. Just happened to notice that you mentioned in your blog about a ‘word for 2017’. Is that meant to be ”a word for 2018″?

  5. Thankyou Helen for your ministry helping us understanding and growing in the prophetic. Have a a very merry Christmas; enjoy your Christmas break, and have a blessed 2018.

  6. Good morning from Nigeria Prophetess Helen. This is indeed a confirmation. I have been praying for my husband who even though was recently ordained have lost his way. Last Sunday during worship, the move of the Spirit was so strong and there was a word for him to give himself freely in worship of the Father as He wants to change him for good. Please agree with me that this coming Sunday which is our Christmas carol, he will have an encounter that will change his life. I will come back here to testify of God’s goodness in Jesus name. Amen .

      • Dear Prophetess Helen, join me thank God for indeed HE showed up for me. There was a clear encounter when my husband changed his prepared sermon for the service to an endtime message and publicly stated that he is doing away with everything that doesn’t please God in his life. He later told me He had prepared something else but the Holy Spirit changed his course. Join me to agree on the name of Jesus that the fruits of this encounter remains permanent in his life.

        • That’s wonderful Jules, I pray that you both will continue to encounter God in significant ways, may your husband remain soft and open to God, and in 2018 may you go from strength to strength. And, may you bring many people with you! <3

  7. Thank you Helen for all your encouraging words, personally and corporately. Even this last one here “The Prophetic Recall is Going out this Christmas”. Love has come to the World … a Love that draws the heart to the place and the person of Grace, where the impossible is made possible. Awesome! I have been praying for one son-in-law and daughter to sort out their differences for a family to once again flourish in the Chessed Blessing of the Lord. Trusting God for a miracle for them this Christmas, miracles are abounding – one of them is the healing of my own heart.
    Thank you again, for your kindness, encouragement and support.
    Have a Blessed family Christmas with family and friends Helen…..
