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.
