I believe the Lord is raising up a mighty prophetic remnant in Kentucky that's going to set the standard for the nation to follow. There have been many prophetic words spoken over this state by Chuck Pierce and Dutch Sheets, that Kentucky would a first fruits state of revival. Revival is not just about services, it brings transformation. Kentucky is called to set an apostolic and righteousness model. Kentucky is close to being an abortion for state. Adoption is rising and it was prophesied Kentucky would lead the nation in adoption, which is a reflection of sonship and the Father's heart. I believe some of the main things on the Father's heart in Kentucky is unity and breaking the spirit of racisim. Kentucky we must learn to converge our streams and come together, to show others how it can be done. The Kingdom of God is multifaceted, and we must learn to be as well.
As I have attended conferences over the year, and more recently at East Coast Emerge, the topic of racism continues to be brought to the forefront. God has his finger on it, and wants to deal with it. This issue is not going away, and we have not seen the last of it. Apostle Jeremy Gibson at the Emerge Conference in Lexington, KY this past weekend, said "To deal with and break the spirit of racism in America, we must first deal with it in the Church." Judgement/repentance starts in the house of God first (1 Peter 4:17). As he began to talk about that, the Lord gave me a vision. In the vision I saw a television, and on the television Fox News was covering a march. But this march was not out of control or violent, it was unified and peaceful. The Lord began to show me this was the Church marching, declaring they would no longer stand for racism and injustice.
I believe the issue of racism will rear its head again, especially in 2018. During this Emerge conference on the last night, the spirit of racism was prayed against and broken. The Lord reminded me that Lexington has a history of slavery and racism, and it's a stronghold that has to be dealt with to truly see revival. From the 1820's until the the civil war, Lexington was one of America's largest slave markets (kentucky.com). Many of the slaves were sold in downtown Lexington at Cheapside park. Although it wasn't a reflection of all the people, it was something that still went on and people looked the other way.
I believe God is raising up a mighty remnant in Kentucky that will say enough is enough, it's no longer being swept under the rug. The Father is waiting and looking for those who will stand up for justice. I believe in my vision Fox News was covering that march because it's very rare for the Body of Christ to come together and be in unity. 2 Chronicles 16:9 says, "The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him." I believe God wants to use Kentucky to be a voice and break the spirit of racism. If we continue to remain silent, the world will write it's own narrative according to their fleshly and soulish desires. Kentucky let's be the voice and, set the standard of righteous for the nation to follow. Kentucky it's time to emerge as a prophetic voice for the nation. "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people" (Proverbs 14:34).
