Prophetic Word For June: Don't Fear The Warfare. It's Time To Ascend The Heights, The Next Generation Needs You
To be honest I wasn't ready for the recent wave of warfare that left me literally breathless, and overwhelmed. But that's how the enemy works. He'll come after you when you least expect. Many people want to ascend the heights and release mind blowing revelation, but don't realize the cost and the price that's paid and required of you. Ascending the heights is not for the faint of heart. Waves of warfare that come to take you out, can make you question if it's really worth it.
The Lord gave me a powerful dream I want to share and encourage you with. In the dream it was late at night. I was dressed in black and met up with my daughter's kindergarten teacher, who was also dressed in black. In the next scene we were climbing this white arch/walkway that looked like the Arch in St. Louis. When we began to climb the arch I realized we were very high up over a six lane highway. I told my daughter's teacher I wasn't going to look down but only look straight ahead, because the heights were scaring me. I remember closing my eyes to focus on taking one step at a time, one foot in front of the other. Then at some point my daughter's teacher grabbed me from behind and carried me to the other side. In the last scene, I was being chased by three demonic men at night still. I was able to run into a parking garage and find a car that was unlocked. I jumped into the car and put in reverse thinking I"m finally safe. Something told me to check the rear view mirror to see if the demonic men were hiding in the back seat. To my surprise I found a three year old boy, and two year old girl in the back seat. As I was driving away, a mother came frantically running out into the street saying someone had taken her children. I stopped the car and got out to tell the mother what happened, and that I didn't realize her children were in the car, I was only trying to get to safety.
Wow what an intense dream! Let's break it down. I believe my daughter's teacher represented Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit leads, guides, and teaches us all things (John 14:26). The white arch represented the highway or the way of the Lord. While down below dipicted the highway of man. Matthew 7:13-14 says,“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide isthe gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it" The fact that we were both dressed in black and traveling in the middle of night when darkness covers and hides, shows at times the Lord will orchestrate covert operations to advance you. I believe the darkness represented how the enemy can't see us advancing in this season, because we are hidden in Christ (Colossians 3:3). At times, the Father hides us in the spirit realm to lessen the warfare. It reminds me of the story in Acts 9 when many were plotting to kill Paul and they snuck him out of the city in the middle of the night. I believe the Father is covering and advancing many of His secret operatives in this season. In the promotion many are walking in new heights and paths of the Lord they have not experienced before. Don't fear. The Lord is sending His helper (Holy Spirit) or other strong believers to help you advance and navigate when you are weary or scared. I was reminded of Psalm 73:2 when David said, "But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold." The Father has you. Psalm 18:33 declares, "He makes my feet like those of a deer and gives me sure footing on high places." Keep your focus on the Lord and ahead to where He's taking you, don't look down!
In the last part of the dream, the demonic men were chasing after me and I was able to find a car to escape in. I believe many of you are weary and trying to run or escape because the warfare has been so intense. Sometimes in an attempt to escape the warfare, we just want to check out. When I looked in the rear view mirror I was expecting to see the men chasing after me, but I saw two young children. I believe the children represents the next generation. I was reminded this isn't just about me, but about the next generation too. How I respond to the warfare I face now, will affect the generations to come. You carry nations and generations within you.
In this hour the Father is raising up pure prophetic voices. There is a cost to pay, and a narrow road to travel. Don't be weary in well doing. The Father is releasing a fresh measure of grace and strength, and advancing you to where the enemy can't touch you. It's time to be brace and start walking in new heights. You're making the way for the next generation.
In a recent dream I was at a big conference in Mississippi. A well known prophet came out and was getting ready to speak when the worship finished. I asked them if they needed anything, they responded needing a glass of water. I go out into the lobby of this beautiful five star hotel in search to find some water. What I thought would be a simple easy task, turned into a rather difficult one. I found some water on one of the lobby desks, poured it and was on my way back. On my way back I noticed the water turned brown. I thought that was weird, and went to go find another source of water. Thankfully, I found another water source easily. As the water flowed from the faucet I turned on, these particles of food began to come out with the water into the cup. I thought to myself how gross. For a third time, I went in search of another source of water. When I began to pour the water it came out brown. Then the revelation hit me, the water source at the hotel/conference was contaminated.
As I was reading about the Samaritian woman in John 4, the Lord reminded me of the dream above. Jesus tells the woman in John 4:10,"Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.” One of the meanings of the Hebrew word for living is fresh. I heard the Lord say many are drinking from stale, dead, contaminated waters and think it's normal, but it's making you sick.
The water in the dream represents the Spirit. The Spirit was contaminated because of the foundation, and what was being allowed through the pipes. It's like when Jesus told the Pharisees about their impurity in Matthew 23:27, "What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs--beautiful on the outside but filled on the inside with dead people's bones and all sorts of impurity. Like the Pharisees, the hotel was beautiful but at the core it was contaminated.
At times we don't always realize there is contamination, because it can be camouflaged. It's so important to be discerning in this hour. Many are being contaminated and becoming spiritually sick because their "water source" is impure. In the first cup of water at first glance it was clean and seemed pure, but eventually turned brown. Things may not always seem impure at first glance, but we have to be discerning or have eyes to see when it does. The second cup with the food I believe represented the impure word that was contaminating the water. We must know the word of God, or know how to test the spirit (1 John4:1) when prophetic words are given. Many skew and manipulate the word, and many don't catch it. Lastly, the third cup came out brown, there was no question about its contamination. After I realized the water source in the hotel was contaminated, the Holy Spirit reminded me I had bottled water I could get for the prophet. This bottled water was fresh, pure, and bottled just for me. When we have the living waters living inside of us, we can give fresh, pure, living water to those that need it
The prophet at the conference I was getting the water for was pure, but those holding the event were not. Don't be persuaded by big names and flashy personalities, check their fruit. If you've been feeling spiritually sick, dead, or dry check the water sources around you. You have unlimited access to the One who's living waters never run dry, and always bring life at each sip taken. Be careful where you're drinking from.
Over the past couple of months I've had a series of dreams dealing with timing in the sense of roads/highways, traffic, and street lights.
I think it's very imperative in this kiaros season not to miss Father's timing. Roads can represent the road/highway the Lord has you on. Cars tend to represent personal/smaller ministries. Semis/trucks represent bigger ministries. Traffic lights can signal the timing of the Lord. Red-stop/no, Yellow-caution, Green-go.
In one dream, I was running along a six lane highway, and I was running to get back to where I needed to be. All the sudden the spirit of might came upon me like it did in the story of Elijah (1 Kings 18:46), and I began to accelerate and run faster than the traffic. The spirit of might enabled me to run ahead of the traffic and time the traffic lights so I could cross this six lane highway, and get to way I needed to go which led to an elevator. There's some of you in this season where the spirit of might is getting ready to come upon you and enable you to accelerate ahead of other ministries and cross over to a new place in the Lord. Don't worry you're not going to miss it, He's accelerating you.
Another part of a dream, there were cars sitting abandoned and parked alongside the sidewalk. There's some of you who've abandoned your ministry and parked it on the sidewalk when God never said to. It's time to get back in the car/ministry, turn the ignition, and start driving again.
In a most recent dream I was at an intersection at night. There was hardly any traffic. I was to the left of the intersection and I could see out of my peripheral. As I began to look both ways to cross, there was no traffic anywhere to be found. I put my foot on the ground to cross, and out of nowhere there were these lights coming towards me. I realized a semi was gunning to take me out, and it illegally went through the red light. This happened 4-5 times in the dream. I was eventually able to cross to the other side. Some of you are getting ready to cross over to a new season/level of where God is taking you, and for whatever reason there will be those who have bigger influence or ministry coming to illegally take you out. Don't fear. Discern and trust the timing of the Lord. He sees things that we can't at times. The Lord is our place of safety, and will enable you to get to where He is calling you to.
In this season be very sensitive and discerning to the timing of the Lord so you don't miss or delay what the He has for you.
