I believe we're in a time where the prophets of God are being restored. In the Church we're going to start seeing prophets function in greater capacities than just prophesying. We need to put a demand on the prophets to do more than just prophesy. We're doing ourselves a disservice when we only pull on the prophet to prophesy personal words. A prophet is a foundational gift to the Body used to help build the Church (Ephesians 4:11). There is a need more than ever to make sure the Word of God being released is the pure and true word of God.
I want to share a sobering and alarming dream I had for the Body of Christ. In the first part of the dream I was swimming in this pool for quite awhile doing laps, and enjoying being immersed in the water. Swimming in a pool or clean water tends to represent swimming in the things of the Spirit.
As the scene changed I got dressed, and went home to grab some meat I had bought from the store. I grabbed the plastic bag from the refrigerator, and went to the store. I walked into the foyer of this huge white grocery store, and two men caught my attention immediately. They were the butchers of the meat department. Both of them were doubled over in pain and looked as if they would vomit at any point. I overheard them saying the meat they had cut and sold for the store, they believe it was contaminated and had given them food poisoning. I moved on from their conversation and began to walk into the main part of the store. As I walked around the store I noticed there were people doubled over in pain or vomiting, because they too had handled or ate the meat from the store. My observation was, those who handled the meat in some way from that store had gotten food poisoning.
I went back out into the foyer and there was a table set out before me. I took the plastic bag with the meat I had brought from home, and took the meat out to see if it was good to eat. I had bought the meat from the store at an earlier date, but I was unsure if I should eat it, because of the possibility of contamination. I got my phone out and I called my husband. I asked him what he thought I should do with the meat. He told me based on my observation from the store and since the meat was from the same store I probably shouldn't eat it, because it would make me sick. I put the meat back in the bag, closed the bag up, and the dream ended.
As I woke up I felt a heaviness in my spirit, because I knew the Lord was showing me the word of God (the meat) being released from House of God (the store) was contaminated. The word being distributed is giving many food poisoning. The butchers represents the, ministers, those who are preparing the word of God for their congregations to receive and partake of. The only way the meat (word of God) would be contaminated is if the source from which these ministers are getting the word is contaminated. Another way the word being released would be contaminated is if the butcher or minister was they themselves contaminated, or their hands had bacteria (sin) that transffered to the meat.
I believe the Lord is sending His prophets to judge the word of God being released in His house. 1 Corinthians 14:29 says, "Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh, carefully what is said." When I called my husband in the dream , it was reflecting be talking to the Lord as him what I should do. Accountability must return to the house of God. We are knowing and unknowingly allowing people in the pulpits to release the word of God, but they're really releasing sickness into the Body. Those who have been preparing the word have been getting it from unclean sources. Or they themselves have sin in their lives that's release impure words to the Body. 1 John 4:1 says, "Dear friends, don't believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world."
Beloved we must not be ignorant of the Word of God and what it truly says. Many congregations are getting hoodwinked by impostors standing in pulpits releasing the meat of the word that is impure. The startling thing is most believers don't realize they are sick in spirit. Discernment must return to the Body. The Father has given us this gift to be able to determine the source of something. This gift will become more vital in the days to come. Ask the Lord to increase your discernment, because there are many deceptive spirits running rampant in the "name of God."
God is exposing those who have been contaminating the word of God. Exposure is coming. The Lord is cleaning up His Church, and will no longer tolerate those who are serving impure meat to his Bride. Those who have been serving impure meat must repent, there is redemption for you. But those who refuse to repent will be dealt with by the Lord. The Lord is releasing His prophets in this hour to judge the word. The prophets are going to begin to pick apart the meat, and divide it accordingly. 2 Timothy 2:15 says, "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." Accountability is being restored to the house of God.
As I was praying this morning I could hear much chatter going on in the spirit realm. I heard the Lord say he's exposing the wind-talkers.
A wind-talker is-codetalker. intelligence agent, intelligence officer, operative, secret agent - a person secretly employed in espionage for a government.
Espionage-the practice of spying or of using spies, typically by governments to obtain political and military information.
There is spiritual espionage going on the Body of Christ attempting to secretly overthrow, character assassinate, slander, gossip, manipulate, and throw witchcraft at.
The Lord is exposing the witches, and the demonic secret agents that have patterned with the enemy. The Lord is getting ready to expose your conversations and what you've been saying behind the backs of leaders and those in authority. Repent, don't be a pawn of the enemy.
He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.-Daniel 2:22
This morning I woke up with an urge to pray and intercede for our president and nation. In different scenes I saw President Trump speaking on TV and at podiums. And in another part of the dream I was looking out a big window, and I saw a huge storm with very dark clouds forming. Tornadoes were also beginning to form, there was a big one that stuck out and I warned others to take cover.
I heard in my spirit the phrase "a war of words." These spiritual storms were over a war of words about domestic issues going on within our nation. Regardless of how you feel about the president, we are called to pray for our government and president. These storms/principalities are being empowered by our words. The enemy is taking our words of anger, hatred, frustration, etc and using them to empower these demonic storms over our nation leaving chaos and destruction in the natural and spirit. One of our greatest weapons of warfare for our nation right now is prayer and unity to diffuse these storms.
I don't know if you've felt it lately, but it seems like another wave of warfare has been released by the enemy. I believe now and into 2018 is a very pivotal time. These next three months are like a hallway of transition into stepping into a greater measure of what the Lord has for you. We just moved into the Hebrew year 5778, the year of the door and new beginnings. Isaiah 43:18 declares, "Look I"m doing a new thing, do you not perceive it?" The number eight prophetically represents new beginnings Many have stepped through the door and your feet are on the threshold. The transition period is stepping from the threshold into promise and the new.
At the beginning of the week I had two dreams back to back nights. Both carried a similar message. In the first dream, I was told last minute I was to share a word at a service. I began to tell the Lord I don't know what to say, Lord I don't have anything. And eventually it was my time to share and I said to myself, "Here we go, Lord speak through me." The second dream I was riding in a car with some people I knew in the dream. At the time in the dream there wasn't much going on in my life ministry wise an opportunities. I was in a waiting period. There was a girl who told me, "Why don't you just go back to working and the career you used to do, Why are you wasting your time with this ministry stuff? It's not very profitable for you."
From these dreams I believe the enemy is sending an onslaught of discouragement and resistance, because he doesn't want you to make it through the threshold into promise. He's sending discouraging dreams and mental onslaughts to get believers to question what God has placed within them, and quit. The recent mental warfare has been relentless. In times like these it's important to make sure you have your armor on (Eph 6), especially the helmet of salvation and the belt of truth. When the enemy begins to bring lies and accusations at you, you have to battle and declare the truth of the Word of God and what he says about you. It's imperative to daily renew your mind according to the word of God. Romans 12:2 says. "Be transformed by the renewing of your mind." As believers we have and can partake in the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16).
To survive and transition into this new season it's vital to gird up your mind. The enemy doesn't play fair. He's after your promises and prophetic words. He wants to steal, kill, and destroy them (John 10:10). Don't give the enemy access. As Paul told Timothy, "Wage war with the prophetic words spoken over you" (1 Timothy 1:18). Pull down the vain imaginations that tries to exalt itself above the truth of God in your mind (2 Corinthians 10:5). If the enemy is pushing you back, push back even harder. Refuse to me moved. Many become causalities in the hallways of transition. Don't be a victim of transition. you're called to be an overcomer and one who conqeurs (Romans 8:37). Beloved push forward and don't shrink back because of the enemy's intimidation and lies. Close the door to the last season so you can't look back. Fix your gaze on what the Father has in front of you. Keep moving forward into promise and revelation.
