In prayer, the Holy Spirit has highlighted four key passages for 2022:
“To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth.” – Revelation 3:7-10 [quoting Isaiah 22:22]
I (Rick) believe the Lord will continue the shakings I saw in a vision in 2016, in which there were periods of shaking, calm, and then another shaking. These were like birth contractions, increasing in intensity, but with breathing spells in between the contractions.
I was shown in 2016 that when these shakings began, they would result in:
- Water flowing into the very driest places. Therefore, we will see the Holy Spirit moving in great power in what have traditionally been some of the hardest, driest places spiritually, such as Saudi Arabia.
- Increased polarization. Therefore, we will see even greater and clearer polarization, as there will be little grey of confusion or compromise, but good and evil, the wheat and the tares will both accelerate in their maturity.
- A gradual increase of miracles, healings, and harvest coming from a Body that knows its weakness and has learned dependence and humility. These miracles, healings and harvest will snowball at a certain point of “critical mass”. We believe the Lord has shown us there will be a great movement in 2022 of “deliverance ministry” not seen since the times of Derek Prince and the Hammonds. Much of the deliverance and healing will take place in public places such as parks and malls, and in some cases stadiums, demonstrating in power the gospel of the Kingdom of God.
“The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” – Matthew 3:10
In the governmental arena, the Lord is “laying the ax to the root”. Because the roots were deeper and stronger than many realized, this calls for patient perseverance by those called to governmental intercession, so that in many places there will be not only an exposure, but a deep rooting out of evil systems.
I (Rick) felt the Lord speak recently to me: “Shakings expose roots. Greater shakings uproot”. Therefore we must continue to believe for not just exposure, but the uprooting of systems of evil in nations for which we are interceding.
Certain nations will emerge as models or templates for movements of reformation and transformation. Some of these are:
- Czech Republic
- United Arab Emirates
Isaiah 60:1-12 will accelerate in its fulfillment in Jerusalem and in Israel.
- Although quoted much about the Church (to which it can be applied), the original and main intent of this passage was that in a time of “thick darkness upon the nations”, His light and glory will arise upon literal Jerusalem in such a way that world leaders will come to the brightness of its rising, turning to Jerusalem and Israel for answers that work to the crises that nations are facing. More nations will move their embassy to Jerusalem. Nations will increasingly see the fruit of their attitude towards Israel, resulting in blessing or a curse.
- This passage also predicts a return of commerce and relationship between countries of the Arabian Peninsula with Israel, and even those who will come from Saudi Arabia to worship the Lord God of Israel in Israel.
- This passage also predicts a great new wave of Aliyah, of Jews returning to Israel, especially from the West (Europe, North and South America). Many from Latin and South America will be helped by a “Ruth Church” to return to Israel with their silver and gold, rather than in destitution like those Jews of Europe who returned after WWII.
In the governmental realm, 2022 will be a time of new alignments between nations. Certain old alignments that have ruled for decades will fall apart, and new alignments will form, both for good and for evil:
- There will be a continued momentum of the alignment of many so-called “Muslim nations” with Israel that will be more than just a “cold peace”. There will be a highway of light forming from these nations that will make a “warm peace” with Israel and will align with it against evil alliances allowed for a time between Iran, Turkey, Russia, and China. (At the same time, we need to pray that the new alliances with Israel will not be used in any wrong ways by Islamic agendas).
- There will also be new alliances forming and strengthened to stand against threats coming from the regime ruling China. Key in these new alliances will be:
- The USA (If there is a greater spiritual awakening in the USA that affects the government.)
- There will be new alignments between emerging “sheep nations”, especially in Latin and South America, and in Africa. These nations will move forward quickly in their economies and in blessing in the “mountains of society”.
“Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, ‘Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand?’” – Matthew 12:25,26
The worldwide intercession movement will increasingly use against the powers of darkness a weapon that those powers of darkness have used against the Church: Division.
As we come into a deeper understanding of this, we will:
- See division coming in a strong way upon the ruling regime of China. This will severely set back their agenda for global domination.
- See division between Sunni and Shia Muslims, that will help further tear down the wall of Islam so that a great Harvest will come forth.

I have prayed with Alan Vanderkolk in Jerusalem and he has been our supervisor at Tamar in southern Israel for several years. I find your insights factual and believe the literalness of the prophetic message. That is the primary reason Blossoming Rose has stayed with the excavation and development of Biblical Tamar Park for nearly 40 years. The words of the prophets are the most sure signs of what our futures hold. Israel is a reality, the bones in the Valley have flesh and live. I hope to see the day that the recognition takes place of their Messiah and then a full infilling. Thanks. DeWayne Coxon
Thank you from the Uk – we have been hearing simillar stirings.
Bless you all
Blessings and favor in 2022
Thank you so much, Rick. Chuck Pierce has recently warned us of the need for America to make a choice and be a sheep nation. So I have been asking the Lord how to press in and pray in this hour. These points are very helpful!
Healed and holy nation’s come 2022
Thanks Pastors Rick and Patricia Ridding for sharing with us this accurate and truthful prophetic message; Yes, it is so true! It is coming from God’s word and from the Ruah Ha Kodesh to help us as body of Yeshua to be aligned with his will and purpose as intercesor and watchmen in the wall of our cities!!! Thanks very much to Abba Father for revealing to his servants his prophetic message!!! From the USA we received God’s assignment to pray for our nation and Territories!!
You are spot on Rick. Uganda is diligently preparing for Revival and Reformation and Transformation in 2022.
Thank you for sharing.

Dear Pastor Rick,
You may misunderstood what China really want: “Communism” is just an untouchable brand name in China (just like royalties in Europe), in fact PRC promoting “Ethnic Nationalism” to gain support from citizens. That means, China will not attack other nations except Taiwan (Taiwanese have the same bloodline with Chinese), China only want to rule all Chinese but not other races. Uyghurs is another problem : China rules Xinjiang since 1759 but Uyghurs never become Chinese, Uyghurs’ identity and Islam combine together to form Separatism and thus China put Uyghurs into educational camp (brain-washing and vocational training to turn them into Chinese).
Instead of ruling the world, I believe China want to rule all Chinese throughout the world. Race + Nation + government become a “Holy Trinity” and to combine with Chinese Communist Party so that no Chinese can criticize him.
China is now unifying Chinese Languages into one:
and there is only one purpose:
“And the Lord said, See, they are all one people and have all one language; and this is only the start of what they may do: and now it will not be possible to keep them from any purpose of theirs.” (Genesis 11:6)
Hello Rick, hello Patricia,
My wife forwarded that to me and we read it today together.
Thanks for the advanced insights and thoughts and also visions for 2022.
This topic regarding suni and shiit Muslims are the same, as i understood, as it was stated today by an video posted by Perry Stone, seen on YouTube link here: https://youtu.be/3VDZcS-ua_U
So many thanks for That insight and I would also say it will come like that to pass. So it is confirmed at least from one other source and will come to pass as the Bible predicted when it says, nations will gathering an rise against Jerusalem.
Furthermore I believe that there will be and must be a great shaking in the political and governmental realm because of the situation we facing right now all over the world and my deepest heart is moved by what I see and feel in the spirit here happening right now. It is an unpredicted critical mass reached by the evil things happening all around us and we will and must see an new awaking of believers and non believers for what is happening to see the will of the lord been released on the face of the earth.
Keep up the good work
Thanks for your time and effort

This Ezra went up from Babylon; and he was a ready scribe in the law of Moses, which the Lord God of Israel had given: and the king granted him all his request, according to the hand of the Lord his God upon him. And there went up some of the children of Israel, and of the priests, and the Levites, and the singers, and the porters, and the Nethinims, unto Jerusalem, in the seventh year of Artaxerxes the king. And he came to Jerusalem in the fifth month, which was in the seventh year of the king. For upon the first day of the first month began he to go up from Babylon, and on the first day of the fifth month came he to Jerusalem, according to the good hand of his God upon him. For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments. Now this is the copy of the letter that the king Artaxerxes gave unto Ezra the priest, the scribe, even a scribe of the words of the commandments of the Lord, and of his statutes to Israel. Artaxerxes, king of kings, unto Ezra the priest, a scribe of the law of the God of heaven, perfect peace, and at such a time. I make a decree, that all they of the people of Israel, and of his priests and Levites, in my realm, which are minded of their own freewill to go up to Jerusalem, go with thee. Forasmuch as thou art sent of the king, and of his seven counsellors, to enquire concerning Judah and Jerusalem, according to the law of thy God which is in thine hand; And to carry the silver and gold, which the king and his counsellors have freely offered unto the God of Israel, whose habitation is in Jerusalem, And all the silver and gold that thou canst find in all the province of Babylon, with the freewill offering of the people, and of the priests, offering willingly for the house of their God which is in Jerusalem: That thou mayest buy speedily with this money bullocks, rams, lambs, with their meat offerings and their drink offerings, and offer them upon the altar of the house of your God which is in Jerusalem. And whatsoever shall seem good to thee, and to thy brethren, to do with the rest of the silver and the gold, that do after the will of your God. The vessels also that are given thee for the service of the house of thy God, those deliver thou before the God of Jerusalem. And whatsoever more shall be needful for the house of thy God, which thou shalt have occasion to bestow, bestow it out of the king’s treasure house. And I, even I Artaxerxes the king, do make a decree to all the treasurers which are beyond the river, that whatsoever Ezra the priest, the scribe of the law of the God of heaven, shall require of you, it be done speedily, Unto an hundred talents of silver, and to an hundred measures of wheat, and to an hundred baths of wine, and to an hundred baths of oil, and salt without prescribing how much. Whatsoever is commanded by the God of heaven, let it be diligently done for the house of the God of heaven: for why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his sons? Also we certify you, that touching any of the priests and Levites, singers, porters, Nethinims, or ministers of this house of God, it shall not be lawful to impose toll, tribute, or custom, upon them. And thou, Ezra, after the wisdom of thy God, that is in thine hand, set magistrates and judges, which may judge all the people that are beyond the river, all such as know the laws of thy God; and teach ye them that know them not. And whosoever will not do the law of thy God, and the law of the king, let judgment be executed speedily upon him, whether it be unto death, or to banishment, or to confiscation of goods, or to imprisonment. Blessed be the Lord God of our fathers, which hath put such a thing as this in the king’s heart, to beautify the house of the Lord which is in Jerusalem: And hath extended mercy unto me before the king, and his counsellors, and before all the king’s mighty princes. And I was strengthened as the hand of the Lord my God was upon me, and I gathered together out of Israel chief men to go up with me.

Hi Rick & Patricia,
It is a privilege & responsibility to be a prayer warrior for such a Time as this!
Prayer declarations out of South Africa confirm the word you have written! Much prayer is needed especially in the governmental areas to allow this beautiful country called South Africa, to become a Sheep Nation and responsibly support Israel which is the Key needed.
