As our worship team began to spontaneously sing about the rain this past Sunday morning, I began to hear these words in my spirit, “The drought is over“. The Lord led me to 1 Kings 18 where Elijah was prophesying the sound of abundant rain after slaughtering the prophets of Baal. I believe this is significant for the prophetic voices in this hour as we understand the spiritual climate we are entering and have endured.
Yesterday morning while in prayer, I heard the words, oil spill clearly in my spirit. There has been a lot of prophetic talk about oil and what God wants to do in this coming season and I believe this is an extension of what I am hearing in my spirit.
Oil represents the anointing of the Lord. It represents the Holy Spirit. Oil was used to anoint the priests for service in the Old Testament. Oil was poured onto the heads of kings by prophets so as to anoint them for their royal assignment. But somehow I knew that this amount of oil was not going to come from a small horn of oil or from a flask. This was a monumental amount of oil and it was noteworthy.
This is a call to the prophetic voices of this hour who will choose obedience over sacrifice. This is for those who are battling against the Sauls, the ones who are trying to hold a position of blessing out of rebellion and presumption. If Agag is cheerfully coming into your presence because of Saul, this is for you. Weeks ago, the Lord led me to 1 Samuel 15. I spent hours looking up words from this account, jotting things down in my ministry journal and tucking the journal away. I did not understand why God wanted me to study this passage so intently until now.
Have you ever looked upon a broken object shattered into a thousand pieces and thought to yourself, “That is beautiful and I love it regardless”? Many of us would take that shattered object and discard it, automatically writing it off as replaceable. We would never take the time to find every piece, every shard and every fragment, no matter how finite and insignificant and put it back together.
Our minds would be resolved in throwing it away because it would never look as it once did before it was broken and we would easily move on to the next beautiful thing appearing to be whole and worthy of our time. Recently, I heard the Lord speak these words into my spirit, “There is beauty in the breaking“. This may not be a revelation that makes you jump and shout, but it is necessary because in order for the bride of Christ to be radiant with His Glory, a breaking must come in us personally and corporately.
The story of Paul and Silas in prison is a well known account in the book of Acts. We usually hear the climax of the story being told at the midnight hour as these men sat in the inner prison singing hymns. Their feet were shackled and their bodies were bruised and beaten for casting a devil out of a girl practicing divination.
As these men worshiped the Lord, a suddenly occurred, the ground shook and all of the prison doors opened. Everyone’s bonds came unfastened in a suddenly. Though this is a powerful moment, the Lord highlighted something to me prior to their incarceration that I believe is also a powerful revelation. It is a revelation that is relevant for us today.
Last week I sensed the Lord asking me to write down a statement and to read it. I wrote it on a piece of paper in one of my journals. As I read it, it stirred my spirit. Over the next few days, the Lord began to reveal things to me through His Word that I would like to share about this call to the prophetic voices in this hour and in the days to come. I believe this a corporate message as we exalt the One True Living God while engaging in spiritual warfare. This is a call that is bestowed upon every child of God, every disciple of Christ.
Several weeks ago during a time of corporate prayer, I heard the words plumb line in my spirit. I saw a vision of vertical structures and the foundation that these vertical structures rested upon. I began to understand that these structures represented the people of God with the foundation being the Word of God.
I discovered the term plumb line means, “A cord weighted with lead that is used in building to check that vertical structures are true. It is used symbolically to refer to the divine standard against which God, the builder of his people, tests and judges them. It also symbolizes the standards by which God will rebuild his people“.
As our head intercessor held a large sword while praying for our nation and the election this past Tuesday morning, the Lord began to highlight another sword in my spirit. This particular sword in our midst was initially brought for prayer during the election and the political arena as this sword held emblems of Washington D.C. upon it. The Lord had additional plans for this weapon on this day. I immediately grabbed my Bible and began to look up Goliath’s sword, only I was not going to the battlefield, but to the temple.
As I browse my social media newsfeed, I find myself preaching out loud and wondering if anyone can hear me. I am passionate about seeing people fulfill the purpose for which God has placed upon their lives. So if you are reading this, understand that what I say may challenge you and even offend you, but my desire is for you to live in the fullness of Christ. This may only be read by a few individuals and if so, then that is enough because my writing is more about Him and less about me being well known.
