I know this a lengthy word but the Lord literally interrupted what I was doing with His beautiful presence and I had an encounter with the Lord and this word came forth. I feel this is a very important word for the prophets right now.
Many prophets have been going through some intense opposition and battle especially in the last few months. The Lord showed me that in the opposition and the battle the enemy has been attempting to “separate” God’s prophets from what He is about to release them into. Yet, in the middle of the battle, the Lord is also separating. The Lord is bringing a separation in the hearts of the prophets. The fire of God is falling upon the hearts of the prophets right now, to burn away and to separate any places where “affections of the heart” have turned towards anything but Jesus.
There is a fire that is upon the prophets right now, it’s a recalibration, it’s a refining, it’s a reawakening and shaping that the Lord is doing, a deep moulding of the heart, a deeper place of yieldedness to run after nothing else but Him. To not chase titles, a big ministry, more favour, but bringing them to a deeper place of beautiful brokenness. To the place of deeper hunger for nothing else but Jesus that is found in the fire of God. There is a call from the Spirit of God upon the prophets right now to yield to His fire and allow Him to do what He needs to do within them, so that they can move into the new thing that God has for them. I saw the Lord breaking off competition, fear of man, entitlement, jealousy and other things, and bringing the prophets to a deeper place of purity.
DRINKING OUT OF CONTAMINATED WELLS
I heard the Holy Spirit say “A contamination of the wells has entered. A contamination of the wells has entered.” I then had a vision and I saw the wells that many prophets were drinking out of were CONTAMINATED. Things had ‘entered into’ the wells, and were contaminating the ‘pure flow’ of the Spirit of God through the prophets and the prophetic words He was wanting to release. I saw the wells labelled “COMPLACENCY AND COMPROMISE”. These were areas of the heart where these places of complacency and compromise had taken root.
The Holy Spirit spoke again “I love you too much to leave you here. It is time for a WHITEWASH in My Word.”
“For He died for us, sacrificing himself to make us holy and pure, cleansing us through the showering of the pure water of the Word of God. All that He does in us is designed to make us a mature church for His pleasure, until we become a source of praise to Him – glorious and radiant, beautiful and holy, without fault or flaw.” – Ephesians 5:26-27 (The Passion Translation)
The Lord showed me encounters upon the prophets that are happening in this season that are seeing them encountering Him int eh Word of God, deeper than ever. There is a deep circumcision of the heart and recalibration taking place out of His love, He is bringing about a deep maturing in the Word by the Spirit of God because of where He wants to lead them.
“For we have the living Word of God, which is full of energy, and it pierces more sharply than a two-edged sword. It will even penetrate to the very core of our being where soul and spirit, bone and marrow meet. It interprets and reveals the truth thoughts and secret motives of our hearts. There is not one person who can hide their thoughts from God, for nothing that we do remains a secret, and nothing created is concealed, but everything is exposed and defenceless before his eyes, to whom we must render account.” – Hebrews 4:12-13 (The Passion Translation)
There is a deep ‘heart surgery’ of the heart taking place by the Spirit of God right now to remove anything that has seen COMPLACENCY and COMPROMISE hook into.
The new season that is upon the prophets to release His heart. The increase that He is bringing. The heart must be prepared in greater ways. The character of the prophets continually sharpened.
What He is bringing forth and what He is about to release, the revelation SO weighty to the prophets, He is looking for the prophets that will yield to His fire, yield to what He is doing to be able to carry that which He is releasing.
ENCOUNTERS RESTORING THE FEAR OF GOD TO THE PROPHETS AND THEN TO THE CHURCH
The Lord spoke to me that there are encounters in this season upon the prophets that is going to RESTORE AND INCREASE THE FEAR OF GOD in their lives. I saw such deep, profound, incredible encounters with the Lord like in Isaiah 6 that is going to bring about:
* A deep cleansing, purifying and fire to consume all that is contaminated.
* A deeper place of the restoration and increase of the fear of God in their lives.
* A greater commissioning to take the Word of the Lord out in new assignments.
These encounters are not something to be feared, they are something to be embraced. In these Isaiah 6 encounters upon the prophets a greater awakening of the WEIGHTINESS of the call to carry the Word of the Lord is being increased. The place of the beautiful privilege it is to “carry His Word” and hearts burning with His fire to CARRY, STEWARD and RELEASE those words with PURITY. A greater discernment birthed to not release prophetic words too quickly, or flippantly with right hearts motives and carrying, stewarding, maturing, chewing upon those words to be released in the timing and way of God. There is such a depth of being ANCHORED in the Word of God that is upon the prophets and the body of Christ right now, a beautiful divine balance of Spirit and Word.
The Lord showed me these deep, beautiful, encounters with Him, His power, majesty and Glory have begun to take place but are about to significantly increase and then being released into the body of Christ. The prophets are calling it forth. They are preparing the Church to receive it in greater measure, for what God is about to do is going to leave the body of Christ speechless in awe of who He is and His majesty as the King of Glory steps in.
There is a MAJOR shift and move of the Spirit of God upon the prophets and moving into the body of Christ that is AWAKENING and RESTORING HOLINESS.
HEAVENLY REVELATION LIKE JOHN THE BELOVED
The Lord showed me that the prophets that YEILD to all that God is doing in this season, the Lord is leading them into a season of encounters SO rich, SO heavenly, I heard the Lord liken these encounters to heavenly revelation and encounters like the Apostle John experienced in the book of Revelation.
John the Beloved’s revelations and experiences were unparalleled, in terms of the unique assignment God had for him. That said, even though the details of John’s encounter, and the details that were revealed to him were unique to John, I do believe that we can experience the same encounters, in terms of the Spirit speaking to us, taking us up into His realm, and giving us insight on what He is doing – all of which, of course, will be harmonious with what is presented in the canon of Scripture.
The Lord showed me that only those that YIELD, only those that SURRENDER, only those that SEEK will be ushered into this season to encounter His heart, to see in the heavenly realms and to prophesy what is to come. What He is going to release and entrust to the prophets in this season in the prophetic revelation of what is to come, requires a deep yieldedness, a deeper brokenness and dependence upon Him, to release what He is showing without taking glory for themselves or any contamination, but living in a place of deep intimacy and purity. Living first and foremost in His heart, knowing Him and no agenda but to know Him.
The prophets are going to experience in greater measure encounters like John had in Revelation 4:1:
“Then suddenly, after I wrote down these messages, I saw a heavenly portal open before me, and the trumpet-voice I heard speaking with me at the beginning broke the silence and said “Ascend into this realm! I want to reveal to you what must happen after this.” (The Passion Translation)
The revelation and insight that the Lord is going to release through these heavenly encounters to the prophets that yield will be such weighty revelation, such deep insight and foresight that when it is declared, SUDDENLY things will be established and greater signs and wonders will accompany the Word of the Lord. The natural realm in greater ways will confirm the Word of the Lord and there will be sudden transformations and shifts on many occurrences and in the nations and the world as the prophetic decree of the prophet goes forth.
Yes, there has been great attack upon many prophets right now, because the enemy does not want the prophets moving into this place of encounter and deeper revelation the Lord is releasing, but at the same time, the Lord is doing a very deep work in the prophets. There’s a greater invitation to yield and to live in the place of purity, holiness and surrender to Him.
For what has begun to be released upon many prophets is about to increase and the weight of it, the privilege of what He entrusts to them will leave them in awe of who He is, and a weighty fear of God to steward well.
A great wave of repentance is taking place right now and will increase as the fear of God is encountered again by many prophets, that is bringing many on their faces before Him, repenting for any ways the prophetic words have not been stewarded well, any compromise, any complacency, and He is embracing His prophets and releasing a beautiful fresh awakening to privilege to move in the office He has assigned to them.
Many tears will flow in this season from the prophets as they are broken in the most beautiful way, at the privilege it is, to carry His Word.
