The Lord reminded me today of this word HE gave me back in October, 2016 and told me to re-post. There has been a very strong stirring/shifting in my spirit ever since.
A MESSAGE TO THE CHURCH ~ TAKE NOTE!
NOW, the season is NOW for Christians – the church – to awaken (been asleep for much too long), to be bold and take up her authority and accomplish God’s Kingdom plan. No longer should we experience “church as usual.” True Kingdom leaders will be open and looking for this change and quickly make the shift in their thinking. They will eagerly put aside their plans and come into alignment with Holy Spirit’s vision for a strong, bold and alive Apostolic Five Fold Ministry church! As the church comes into alignment, the result will be UNITY and God’s love will shine forth like a strong beacon of light seen by all people, from all directions!! This light will dissipate the darkness around us!
Kingdom Warriors today are flooding the atmosphere with their God given authority and boldness, decreeing like King David “I come in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, who you have defied.” I Samuel 17:45 Their prayers of intercession are breaking down barriers, cutting down demonic heads and principalities rendering them helpless! Opening up the way for the Kingdom army to march through in victory!
The atmosphere is full and electric with the power-packed spoken prophetic words from God!! A prophetic word released directly to you or released to all saints is a word spoken directly from Father God Himself! The power behind every God given prophetic word is so magnetic; the words which are alive and spirit should attach to your spirit. God is speaking new life direction to the church, speaking new life direction to us as individuals. He is giving encouragement and direction for the time or season, sometimes even correction! The time is NOW, it is time NOW to receive and believe all that God has for us. The Word is our truth, if it says it then we are to believe it, we are to receive it and move forward to activate it. All of the manifestations of Holy Spirit should be seen and experienced throughout the world today! These signs and wonders, healings and miracles will bring the unsaved to Jesus and into the Kingdom of God.
Please take a few minutes and think about this; as you hear or read a prophetic word from the Lord, do you actually listen beyond the present time? Do you meditate on the word given and think about what the Lord is saying directly to you? Or, do you hear it spoken and then move onto your next thought or onto the next item on your agenda for the day? Never to remember or think again about what has been released into the atmosphere for your life! You are special and Holy Spirit has chosen a specific time and place to encourage you, to build you up, to give you specific instructions. Remember, a prophetic word given is a word from the throne of God directly to you.
Oh, I have to say at times my heart is saddened when I see how some let the golden words from our Lord slip away with no thought, with no respect or honor shown. Many churches are not capturing these special oracles from God for their house, for a new vision, for a new direction or a new awareness of the times we are in. Often there is no faith being released to activate or receive what the Lord is speaking! To some, the prophetic messages have just become yet another form of “religion or tradition” to add to the Sunday services! Whooa, May it not be so in your life!! May it not be so!
Your Kingdom come Lord, Your will be done on earth as in heaven! The church is to bring heaven down to earth by living in the supernatural realm, the heavenly realm for all to see and experience.
“Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.” Thessalonians 5:19-21
“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” Hebrews 4:12-13
