From the desk of one of His Apostle's as we embark upon the new year of 2023/5783 the Lord spoke to me that it will be a year of RETRIBUTION & RECOMPENSE according to:
ISAIAH 3:10-11 NKJV…10 “Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them,For they shall eat the fruit of their doings. 11 Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, For the reward of his hands shall be given him.
The Jewish Year 5783 began on Rosh Hashanah September 25th 2022 using the Hebrew Alphabet and Gematria system.
5 = Grace: (1000 years - Millennium)
7 = Completion, perfection: (100 years - Century)
8 = New beginnings: (10 years - Decade)
3 = Resurrection, seeds: (1 year - Year)
The word Retribution means "to recompense, or reward, the dispensing or receiving of a reward or punishment."
Retribution literally means " to recompense, or reward, payback". It also means Punishment administered in return for a wrong committed.
Recompense means to repay; reward; restore, a reward for services, To award compensation to.
2023/5783 is going to be a year concerning GOD’s complete justice, a judgement occurring as both blessings and cursing depending on which side of the retribution & recompense that you are on, we are also going to see a completion of a season from 2022 and a beginning of a brand-new season in 2023.
The Jewish Calendar is a lunar based calendar where the Jewish festivals and feast are determined by the moon's lunar cycles. The Jewish Calendar operates in periods of 7 year cycles. According to the Bible, Exodus 23:20-11, GOD commanded Israel to observe the 7th year as a Holy Year of rest, known as a Shmita Year. After 7 cycles, of 7 years, or 49 years were completed, there occurs a 50th year known as a Jubilee. According to the Bible in Leviticus 25:8-10, GOD commanded Israel to observed the Jubilee Year. The Jubilee year was a year of great liberation, freedom, debt forgiveness, and a year of retribution/repayment.
In 2023/5783 we end a 7 year cycle and Begin a new 7 year cycle (shmita) in addition we celebrate a Jubilee year. This tells me that GOD is doing a new thing upon the earth after freeing us from debt and bondage through the Jubilee that will bring the righteous retribution and recompense in 2023..
Now the number 3 for 2023/5783 is the Hebrew letter Gimel (or Gimmel). The letter Gimmel resembles both a foot and a person walking in the direction of the left. The word Gimel is derived from the root Hebrew word gemul, which means 'justified repayment', or the giving of reward and punishment.
The Hebrew letter: Gimel 3 also…Is a alphabetical pictograph. Camel, provisions, traveling by foot. This can represent a camel or a direction that a man is walking. Camels in scripture were a symbol of wealth and provision, also bearing loads of benefits. GOD blesses those whose feet that bring good news. Every place that you walk and share edifying good things, you shall be blessed in 2023.
Therefore, 2023/5783 will be a continuation and pinnacle point of the year 5782 (chaos) with (exposure) Because a marking always takes place before the act of judgement occurs, the year 5782 resembled the marking of truth, and 5783 will conclude with the act of judgement (exposure) occurring resulting in both blessings and cursing according to the deeds done by the recipients.
Therefore we must be in tune with what GOD is saying to His Church, and we know that Faith comes by Hearing and Hearing by the Word of GOD through His Preachers.
So Now Under the Anointing of the Holy Spirit I RELEASE TO YOU THE THEME AND SCRIPTURE FOR KBCMI FOR 2023:
2023 THE YEAR OF RETRIBUTION & RECOMPENSE!
ISAIAH 3:10-11 NKJV…10 “Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them, For they shall eat the fruit of their doings. 11 Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, For the reward of his hands shall be given him.
It’s time for the Remnant of GOD to put their complete trust in the WORD of GOD and receive everything that GOD has in store for us in the year of 2023.
May the Lord continue to Bless you & keep you in Jesus Name.

Definition of Apostle
The name "apostle" is a New Testament word the Apostle Paul described as a: "Christian leader who is gifted, taught, and commissioned by God with the authority to establish the foundational government of the Church within an assigned sphere of ministry by hearing what the Spirit is saying to the churches and by setting things in order accordingly for the advancement of the Kingdom of God."
An apostle is defined further by R.H.A.M. as a Christian leader gifted, taught, commissioned, and sent by God with the authority to establish the foundational government of a church or business within an assigned sphere by hearing what the Holy Spirit is saying and one who sets things in order accordingly for the growth and maturity of the group.
The Five-Fold Ministry
The Five-Fold Ministry is the office of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher as described in Eph. 4:11-13. Many mistake the operation of a ministry gift by a person with the offices of the Five-Fold Ministry. Merrain-Webster defines office as a special duty, charge, or positon conferred by a exercise of governmental authority and for a public purpose; a position of authority to exercise a public function and to receive whatever emoluments that may belong to it. God appoints individuals to these offices, not a board or committee. With the office comes spiritual gifts, power and authority(emoluments). The office of the Apostle's public purpose is to govern the church creating disciples; the Prophet to guide to the church by revealing the heart of God; the Evangelist to creat converts through the preaching of the Gospel; the Pastor to guard the sheep through teaching, correction and spiritual protection; and the Teacher to ground the church through teaching the mind of God.
