I believe the Lord is releasing a clarion call for the watchmen to arise. It's no longer just about one or two watchmen, the Lord desires to raise up companies of watchmen. In times past there have been one or two prophets, but the season of the lone ranger prophets is over. The Lord desires to raise up companies and armies of the prophetic. No two prophets are the same, but I believe He is foucusing on the watchmen, the seer, the shamar prophets.
Recently I was spending time with the Lord and He gave me this prophetic word 2/21/18 for the watchmen, “Where are My watchmen in this hour? Where have you gone? Why have you left your post? Why will you no longer warn My people? By leaving your post you have left an access point open to the enemy to what I’ve called you to watch over. Repent and I will restore you to your post. If you choose to not repent, I will hold you accountable for the words I gave you that you did not release. Where are My watchmen who are not afraid to release the hard words? Where are My watchmen who I’ve called to watch over America? Return to your posts watchmen. Sound the alarm, and release the word of the Lord” says the Lord."
The watchman is a vital function in this hour, for the enemy desires to infiltrate families, churches, cities, and nations to wreak havoc and terror. We must sure up are defenses and borders, not just in the natural but in the spirit realm. Ezekiel 3:16-17 says, " At the end of seven days the word of the Lord came to me, saying,“Son of man, I have appointed you a watchman to the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from My mouth, warn them from Me." The Hebrew word for watchman is tsaphah which means, to look out or about, spy, keep watch, observe. watchmen are seers. I believe the Lord is giving His watchmen fresh vision to see more clearly and further than before. You shall have eagle eyesight, to be able to see things clearly with percision in the realm of the spirit.
Some watchmen have grown weary and have sat down or left their post. They felt like they were the only one. Some got tired of releasing the hard words, because they were severely ridiculed and attacked by those they warned. Repent watchmen, and the Lord will restore you to your post. But if you refuse to warn the people of God, the Lord will hold you accountable. The Lord says in Ezekiel 3:18-19 says, "When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself." Those who refuse and disobey the Lord in warning the people of God, He will take down, and replace them with those who have a willing heart.
The job of a watchmen is not something to take lightly, or only do it when you feel like it. The Lord is returning the fear of the Lord to the Church and the land. God is raising up the shamar prophets and the watchmen to alert the people. People with either be blessed by heeding the warning, or reap disobedience for not heeding the word of the Lord. The watchmen are the first line of defense, the buffer between the enemy and the people of God, a city, or a nation.
I hear the Lord saying, "Where are My watchmen? Those who are not afraid to release the hard things? I am calling you forth for such a time as this. Your position is vital in this hour. People, churches, cities, nations are depending on you. I am strenghtening and refreshing My watchmen in this hour. Like Ezekiel I shall stregthen and harden, and cause you to be unshakeable. Take your post watchmen. Sound the alarm. Release the word of the Lord."

I believe we're in a time where the Lord is wanting to mature His Body. Hebrews 5:14 says, "But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties are trained by practice to discern good and evil." In order for the Body to mature, we must start craving and partaking the meat of the word. Many are not growing and maturing learning how to discern spiritual matters, because they want to stay on the milk of the word. Beloved you cannot fully develop properly just driking the milk. There is no depth without the meat of His word.
A few months ago, I had a dream where many leaders in the body were serving contaminated meat, making themselves and many in the body sick. Recently, I had a dream where I had taken a group of people to sit down and eat. In the middle of the table a baby in a carrier was placed. I was sitting at the front of the table and watched as the people begain to eat the steak served. One of them got up from the table and spit out the steak in a metal pitcher because, they didn't like the taste. The next person got up and began to gag and choke on the meat, and coughed it up and spit it out. A third person got up from the table and began to spit out the meat, but suddenly choked because they had not fully chewed the meat and the hiemlich had to be performed.
As I began to pray about the meaning of the dream, I began to hear the Lord say many are not growing in the Body because they are choking or rejecting the hard words being released in this hour. Many are rejecting the words of the apostles and prophets causing them to remain at the same level. It reminds me of when Paul had to address the Corinthian Church in 1 Corinthians 3:1-3, "Brothers, I could not talk to you as spiritual people, but as fleshly people, as infants in Christ. I fed you milk, not solid food, because you were unable to take it. Indeed, you are still not able, even now, for you are still of the flesh. While there is jealousy and rivalry among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving in an ordinary human way?" The Greek word for milk in this passage is gala meaning basic elementry teachings. The Greek word for meat in this scripture is broma meaning more solid, complete and deeper spiritual doctrines.
When we remain at the basic or milk level our canality still runs wild. Even Paul told the Corinthians because I haven't been able to feed you meat, you are still acting carnal with jealousy and rivalry. Beloved when will we grow up in the Body? It's time to put away childish ways. 1 Corinthians 13:11 Paul says, "When I was a child I talked like a child, I thought like a child, When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me." You see when you remain a child there's not much accountabilty or responsibilty to worry about. Many want to stay infants in the Body because they don't want to take responsibilty for their relationship with the Lord, they put it on others.
God is calling His people to arise and mature in this hour. It's time to put away childish ways and mindsets, and move from carnality to maturity. The times are getting darker and more intense. Those who stay on the milk and refuse to grow will be swept away. But those who partake of the meat will mature and will not be shaken. Beloved you have a choice to make. Will you remain in spiritual infancy and continue to reject the meat of the Word? Or will you choose to mature and grow in spiritual matters of the Word?

I believe we're coming into a time where there will be a great divide, and exposing. The Lord is bringing a cleansing and seperating to His Church. He's purifying His Bride in this hour. With purification comes exposure. God is exposing the motives of those in ministry and those around you. Everyone that says, "Lord, Lord" doesn't always know Him. There is a hunger for the supernatural. Many are tapping into ungodly sources of the supernatural, causing them to entertain the demonic. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 says, "But I'm not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that is servantd also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness." Beloved we must be more discerning, and not so gulible. 1 John 4:1 declares, " Dear friends, don't believe every, spirit, but test the spirits to whether they are from God, because many false prophests have gone into the world. There are those in ministry, and some in the mainstream ministry that profess Jesus and operate in the supernatural, but their heart is far from the Lord.
In a recent dream, I was sitting in a living room watching television, a minister of a big church was on the television preaching. In the room with me was a known prophet and another person. The prophet began to tell me about this minister on the television, what others didn't know and realize about the minister. The prophet began to say many years ago this minister used to run the streets. The minister sold drugs and murdered people. The minister was eventually put in jail to serve time for the crimes they committed. During that time the minister came to know the Lord, but never fully went through deliverance. After serving jail time the minister went into full time ministry. They grew a successful ministry by worldly standards. What people called anointing was really charisma. This minister was tapping into the spirt realm with the same spirits that used to help them run the streets and murder. The minister was spiritually assassinating people in the spirit realm and people didnt realize it. People loved this minister and would drive to seem them, and run to the altar to get prayed over by this minister. When the minister would pray over people the minister would release a perverted anointing/transfer on their life. The prophet speaking to me was telling me many in ministry and in the spotlight were not pure,and accessing the spiritual realm through ungodly means.
Deuteronomy 13:1-5 says, "If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, 2 and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ 3 you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God is testing you to find out if you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 You shall follow the Lord your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him. 5 But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has counseled rebellion against the Lord your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, to seduce you from the way in which the Lord your God commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from among you."
Jeremiah 23:10-12 says, "For the land is full of adulterers; For the land mourns because of the curse. The pastures of the wilderness have dried up. Their course also is evil And their might is not right. 11 “For both prophet and priest are polluted; Even in My house I have found their wickedness,” declares theLord. 12 “Therefore their way will be like slippery paths to them,
They will be driven away into the gloom and fall down in it.
Exposure is coming to the Body of Christ. God doesn't expose to bring embarassment, but to those who are unrepentent and continue to walk in impure ways. The Lord is tired of His sheep being used, abused, and decieved. Matthew 7:15-16, says, "15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. We must learn to become fruit inspectors. We become fruit inspectors but knowing the Word of God. Beloved we cannot afford to be ignorant of the devil and his devices. Many have become so enamored with the prophetic and supernatural they've thrown the Word of God out. The Word of God should always be the standard. The Word helps us to divide the false and the true. God is going to begin to expose the false in this hour, Many will be surpised who will be revealed as false. Discernment is needed in this hour more than ever.
