Dear Passion and Fire family,
February 2nd was such a swirl of prophetic activity that it’s been hard for me to think about anything else. Oh, what a day! The Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl, it was a special palindrome date and Ground Hog Day. Wow! What a prophetic day!
I had felt Holy Spirit saying to me on February 1st, “Don’t write your letter until after the Super Bowl.” Now I understand. So even if you’ve already heard it all, let’s hear it again and then use this letter as prayer ammunition to move you into intercession for this next season. And let’s get this out to your intercessors Let’s unpack it all prophetically:
To bring understanding I would like for you to read our dear friend Stacy Campbell’s word concerning the Super Bowl won on Sunday. I also have a short article on the palindrome and info on this year’s Ground Hog Day!
Today the Kansas City Chiefs played the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 54. And … they won their first Super Bowl in 50 years! All the Chiefs’ fans are ecstatic.
But . . . is this also important on a God level?
Since early 1983, Bob Jones – the founding prophet connected with Mike Bickle and the International House of Prayer said, “When the Kansas City Chiefs go to the Super Bowl and win, this will be a sign-post of the billion-soul harvest and a sign that God will raise up his Apostolic Chiefs in all the spheres of influence.” (see https://www.facebook.com/ShawnBolz).
This word is of monumental significance. The Chiefs have not been in Super Bowl for 50 years.
The context of this prophetic word came out of the 21-day Solemn Assembly fast led by Mike Bickle in Kansas City starting on May 7th, 1983 (see mikebickle.org IHOPKC PROPHETIC HISTORY) The focus of the fast was revival in Kansas City and the world. Faith and anticipation were very high. The ‘fast’ was supported with signs in the heavens and on the earth (again listen to material related to the Solemn Assembly fast). Everyone who participated in the Solemn Assembly believed that revival was imminent. Then the unexpected happened. At the end of the Solemn Assembly, Bob Jones announced that the much hoped for revival and the billion-soul harvest would not happen ‘at that time.’ He also said that there would be a physical drought in the Kansas City region and this drought would signify a time of spiritual drought that would also happen (again see mikebickle.org IHOPKC PROPHETIC HISTORY). However, at the appointed time, the rains would come and the much hoped for revival would also come. The obsession became … when will the revival come?
It was during this season that God gave Bob Jones another prophetic word:
“When the Chiefs win the Super Bowl you will know that revival is about to come. God will raise up His Chiefs to be apostolic leaders in many spheres of influence.”
This electrified the community in Kansas City. Julie Meyer (long time worship leader in Mike Bickle’s church) said, “we all became ardent Kansas City Chiefs’ fans. We would watch every game in anticipation of revival.”
The Kanas City Chiefs’ prophecy was heard by many, many people. In fact, Bob Jones‘ personal doctor – Dr. Jeff Earl — said that Bob even reminded Jeff of this word in the last years of Bob’s life.
Today’s win by the Kansas City Chiefs is a prophetic signpost that revival is here.
The prophecy of God raising up his ‘Apostolic Chiefs” is especially relevant at this time as I have been prophesying a ‘Monday to Friday’ move of God. That God is about to anoint his Chiefs – His CEOs, His CFOs, His COOs (Chief Executive Officers, Chief Financial Officers, Chief Operating Officers, etc) to bring about Transformation in the marketplace – the spheres of society. I have said repeatedly that this is not the season of ‘come’ (come to meetings on Weekends and evenings) but rather the season of ‘go’ (go to the market place in your own sphere of influence. This is exemplified by the ‘Transform Our World’ movement led by Dr. Ed Silvoso.
Also connected with the Kansas City Chiefs’ win was the filling of Kansas City Arrowhead Stadium with a major gathering that will see the outpouring of the Spirit of God in unprecedented fashion.
Prophetically the organic movement of The Send, which grew out of Lou Engle’s The Call, will be seeking to gather 50,000 believers to ‘The Send’ at Arrowhead Stadium this October 2020.
Truly this is the time of worldwide revival and the anticipated ingathering of a billion-soul harvest.
As Jesus said in John 3:35 “I tell you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.”

The 2-2-20 Palindrome
A palindrome is a word, number, phrase, or other sequence of characters which reads the same backward as forward. 2-2-20 or Sunday was a palindromic date. But this last Sunday was more special than post palindromic days.
In this case, the date rendered as it normally is in the United States — as month/day/year — is identical read both normally and reversed: 02/02/2020. However, in the numerous countries that follow a day/month/year format, the date is still the same either way. And in the many Asian countries that place the year first, it is still identical backward and forward.
So whether you’re in Europe, Asia, or the U.S., February the 2nd is a very special palindromic day. And extremely rare:
- The previous eight-digit palindrome like this was 909 years ago, on November 11, 1111.
- The next one will be December 12, 2121, 101 years from now.
- After that it’ll be another 909 years until the next eight-digit palindrome, on March 3, 3030.
- After the 3030 palindrome, people will have to wait another 1,010 years, until April 4, 4040, to be treated to the rare occasion again.
– Written by Daniel Payne. DSRN
It was also Andy Reid’s (KC chief’s coach) 222 win—another Palindrome.
The prophetic significance of this signals an alignment. Things that were once askew in your life are coming into God’s order and plan as you continue trusting Him. Watch for it!
This year during the 134th annual Groundhog Day festivities on February 2, 2020 the groundhog did not see his shadow predicting an early spring this year. (Just a side note: Bob Jones always told Brian & I that the number 34 was the number of revival.)
Since his first prediction in 1887 through this year, Phil has seen his shadow 104 times, while he has failed to spot it on just 20 occasions. Ten years are missing from the record, but Phil has issued forecasts without exception. It is the second year in a row Phil has not seen his shadow and the first time on record in consecutive years. In the realm of dreams when you have a consecutive dream it’s because it will surely happen.
Daniel 41:32 “The repetition of your dream means that the matter is fixed by God and that he will make it happen in the near future.”
-Among other things, Spring is an analogy in scripture of a time of refreshing.
How exciting! A billion soul harvest, revival, transformation in the marketplace through the release of the apostolic, stadiums filled with worshippers, God bringing an alignment of the times according to His purposes in our churches, businesses, homes and lives and a season of refreshing just over the horizon. What hope and anticipation! Now it’s time to pull it in by faith and fervent prayer!
“I give you an eternal truth: If two of you agree to ask God for something in a symphony of prayer, my heavenly Father will do it for you. For wherever two or three come together in honor of my name, I am right there with them!” Matthew 18:19-20
Yours for transformation,
Please pray for Brian as he travels to Israel without me. I’m going to have stay back this time because of unforeseen circumstances.

We thank you for your prayers for both of us during this trip. Thank you!
