Prophecy, word of wisdom

Obedience is NOT a Question for Prophetic Ministry

To say that prophets are people of strict obedience is an understatement. When the Lord told Moses to build a tabernacle, Moses fully cooperated with the Lord and carried out every detail of its construction. From the drapes, brazen furniture, types of offerings, and the five- fold combination of the holy anointing oil, Moses executed the order of the Lord in the fullness. When God told Noah to build an ark, the prophet Noah preached and built simultaneously while the people of his day foolishly stood by. David, the prophet and apostle of his time, received God’s heart to build a temple and while he was not permitted to personally construct it, he not only gave his son directions to build but gave him more than enough resources and provisions to see to the job’s completion.

Many of our day proclaim to be prophets but obedience is a characteristic that is lacking in their lives. The Lord has to tell them the same thing over and over, and instead of calling it a stern rebuke, they call it a ‘confirmation.’ In scriptures, the Lord never had to ‘confirm’ His word to them, when the Lord spoke, the holy prophets of God moved. Prophets knew the voice of God and if He had to speak a thing twice, it wasn’t to confirm, it was to establish what He said as law. If He told them to walk naked, they obeyed. If He told them to not grieve over the loss of a loved one, they obeyed. If He told them to preach to a stiff necked generation, they obeyed and if one, such as in the case of Noah, decided to take their own route, they would soon find that the Lord’s will always prevails.

It was Samuel the holy prophet of God who said, “Obedience is better than sacrifice and to hearken than the fatness of rams.” Who understands obedience to the prophetic voice of God more than the prophet? And if someone calls themselves a prophet and yet lack this most important fruit of prophetic ministry, one has to wonder… Prophet Delisa Lindsey-


Beauty for Ashes

As you continue to press in and take Me for My word even through difficult times, you will soon encounter this time of rejoicing. I will release you from the hurtful memories from the past that brought pain and sorrow. I will set you free from the things that war against your soul that brought fear and confusion. This is a time of refreshing to those of you who have been weary. Don’t allow anything to restrain you from this joy set before you. Don’t allow anything to hinder you from receiving all that is available to you. Allow Me to fill you with this joy and peace. Allow Me to bring comfort to your soul. I will give you beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for mourning so that you will live in peace and victory. As you cast your cares on Me and trust Me, I will bring prosperity and contentment in all areas back into your life says the Lord. – Elaine Tavolacci

Prophecy, purpose

No Pain, No Gain – For Real

When someone goes through an emotional painful process, something about them changes. Studies show that this type of pain has a way to connect our thinking to our behavior. In other words, pain changes us. Pain causes us to be more careful, more watchful, and less naive. When we go through pain, even our emotions may be off balance, our thinking enters in what we call ‘survival mode’. We look more within and we tend to ask ourselves questions that only we have the answers  to. Pain causes us to be more aware of who we are and what we truly want out of life. It opens our eyes and shows us the hearts and motives of those around us. Pain helps to define us. Pain shake us. Pain wakes us up. Pain stretches us.

There are many things about ourselves that we may never find out unless we had first experienced pain. Pain helps to shape our personality as resilient people, strong people, and fortified people. Pain grows us.

Jesus demonstrated tremendous works despite His pain. He healed, saved, and delivered despite the loss of friends and betrayal of friends, abandonment, and hostility. Job suffered tremendous pain and agony from the loss of his family, loss of income, marital woes, and insensitive friends. Many of our heroes in the faith have suffered tremendous pain but when we hear their testimonies of how they overcame and how God used them in spite of what they had gone through, we can take confidence in the fact that if God did it for them, He too will do the same for us.

Your emotional pain is not meant to cripple you. Though God may not have caused it, He will use it to strengthen you and to bring Him glory. You are not going through this for nothing. The Lord will deliver you and on time but in the meantime, focus on this, the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory which shall be revealed in your life. Your pain is going to grow you and stand you tall. Even as an infant’s head is shaped in the painful pressing in of the birth canal, so too is your mind being renewed and your faith shaped through your pain. Let the Father mold and shape you and He will bring you out a brand new person. Your life will never be the same. There will be glory after this.


Word to the Barren One

He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the LORD! – Psalm 113:9

Get ready those who have not birthed unto the Lord for He is about to situate you and establish you in that place where you can safely and joyfully give birth. No more barrenness – no more empty wombs. Fruitfulness and Industry is your portion.


Which ‘Coat’ Belongs to You?

Several years ago, while waiting on the Lord, I was taken into a heavenly encounter that impacted my life greatly and caused me to see the reality of my destiny and rise up into it. In this encounter, the Lord came to me and took me by the hand like a little child and led me into what looked like a locker room in Heaven.
As I was standing in this place, I saw what looked to be shaker pegs extending all around the room. Hanging on the pegs were garments that looked like white robes. As I continued to look into the vision, I saw that there were names written above each of these robes. I saw the names of Elijah, Samuel, Jeremiah, Elisha, John Wesley, Charles Finney, Maria Woodworth Etter, and many more. This locker room was in fact a cloak room, or a room of mantles from past revivalists and prophets.
Then I heard the Lord say, “Choose one, and I will give it to you.” I looked at the mantles hanging in this room with the names over the top of the lockers, and I was seriously considering taking Enoch’s mantle, but when I opened my mouth to speak, I replied, “Oh Lord, You know which one I should take.”

In communicating this encounter later to Bob Jones, he said, “Boy, that was the best answer you could have given the Lord. You let Him pick for you.” Immediately, in the vision, the Lord was standing in front of me, and I had a mortar and pestle in my hand used by pharmacists for grinding medicine. The Lord handed me three pills and told me to “grind them.” As I ground the three pills, the Lord said, “These three pills are the past, present, and future mantles.”

The Lord was offering this hidden wisdom to not only me, but to those who share the entitlement with Him to His throne. All mantles, past, present and future, are being poured out upon a glory generation of enthroned Believers in preparation for a great harvest of souls before the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. – Jeff Jansen

The Heart Cry of the Prophet

Hear the heart cry of a prophet when the work of the Lord brings upon him grief and pain. Yes, even prophets can become upset with the Lord when He assigns tasks for them that are almost unbearable. It is not unusual for them to feel slighted by the hand of the Lord, thrown to a pack of wolves, and left alone to defend their own lives. Of course we know that is not the case, but in those ‘seasons’, it is not unusual to feel abandoned by the God who called you. But know that He will NEVER LEAVE YOU. He may grow quiet on you but He will never forsake the works of His hands.

“O LORD, You have deceived me and I was deceived; You have overcome me and prevailed. I have become a laughingstock all day long; Everyone mocks me. For each time I speak, I cry aloud; I proclaim violence and destruction, Because for me the word of the LORD has resulted In reproach and derision all day long. But if I say, “I will not remember Him Or speak anymore in His name,” Then in my heart it becomes like a burning fire Shut up in my bones; And I am weary of holding it in, And I cannot endure it. For I have heard the whispering of many, “Terror on every side! Denounce him; yes, let us denounce him!” All my trusted friends, Watching for my fall, say: “Perhaps he will be deceived, so that we may prevail against him And take our revenge on him.” But the LORD is with me like a dread champion; Therefore my persecutors will stumble and not prevail. They will be utterly ashamed, because they have failed, With an everlasting disgrace that will not be forgotten.” Jeremiah 20:7-10


What is the Prophetic Significance of June?

Today is the first of June. This month was named in the Gregorian calender after the Roman goddess (demon) of infertility and childbirth, named Juno. It’s no wonder the spirit of sabotage is on the loose trying to overthrow our ‘new’ works and assignments. . And, oh yeah, watch out for ‘certain’ women sent into your life in this season. This spirit works predominately in females. Inspect the fruit of ‘new’ female friend in this season. Pseudo midwives and false apostles- Saints, watch for the hidden horns. Case in point, Junia was a true female apostle, Juno is the evil counterpart.


When You Are In That Quiet Season

This is a relaxed time, but also an ideal time of preparation for the future. Make the most of this time, because it will not remain like this for long. Be at peace but also be on the alert. Stay on the alert at all times for your enemy the devil. He is always at the door waiting for an opportunity to wreak havoc. Don’t concentrate on Him, instead concentrate on the good around you, and stay thankful. Keep Me in the center of your eye, as I do you, but watch him in the corner.- Bev Robinson
1 Peter 5:8-9, ‘”Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.”


Let It Go

Do you face a situation that seems hopeless? Have you tried so hard to trust the Lord, but it just seems that you are getting nowhere and that your answer is not coming? If you are in this position then I encourage you to let this thing go and just forget about it! Tell the Lord your concerns and everything that you are struggling with. Then just leave it all there at the Lord’s feet and rest in Him.

As you do this you will give the Lord the opportunity to move mightily on your behalf, because you are truly trusting in Him as a child trusts implicitly in his parents. You are also resting in Him and no longer trying so hard. Then suddenly, sometimes almost out of nowhere, your desires and requests will resurrect and come to pass – and often more than what you had originally asked for or thought possible! Then you will rejoice in Him, and know without a doubt that He has been working on your behalf all along – unknown and quietly behind the scenes – to bless you and cause His joy to be upon your life. – Daphne Crause
