The Prophetic Word

I believe the Lord revealed that we have come to a time when there will be no more delay in the manifestation of the prophetic word! The Holy Spirit is indicating that He has prepared vessels who can be trusted to speak only that which He is speaking, and to deliver the prophetic word only when sent by Him.

2Peter 1:20,21 - "But know this first of all, that no prophecy of scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God."

Prophecy has the power to move through time and space and to release the thing being prophesied. Faith is the delivery system (Rom.12:6 - "if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith."). The Book of Joel speaks of a time when there will be a restoration of prophecy, accompanied by miracles, signs, and wonders. I believe the Lord is indicating that the body of Christ has now entered into this time and season.

The Lord quickened the following with regard to this new season:

Ezekiel 12:23-28 - "The days draw near as well as the fulfillment of every vision. For there will no longer be any false vision or flattering divination.... For I the Lord shall speak, and whatever word I speak will be performed. It will NO LONGER BE DELAYED, for in your days, O rebellious house, I shall speak the word and perform it. Son of man, behold, the house of Israel is saying, 'The vision that he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies of times far off.' "Therefore say to them, 'Thus says the Lord God, "None of My words will be delayed any longer. Whatever word I speak will be performed"'", declares the Lord God."

NUGGET OF GOLD: We're living in a time when both the kindness of God and His severity will be seen in the earth, beginning with His people. For decades, the Lord has sent many prophetic words and warnings, but few have heeded His call. We will now see a swift harvest of actions and decisions, with judgment falling on those things that do not line up with the Word of God. The true prophetic word of the Lord will go forth, with almost immediate fulfillment.

May we be sober and watchful, giving God the Glory!
