Words of Wisdom re: Prophecy

God Himself has just given me words of truth, revelation and understanding about Prophecy, Words of Wisdom, Words of Knowledge and the people who receive them.

  1. The Lord our God truly has "poured out His Spirit upon His sons and daughters.  It is as if the Spirit of Truth, Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding have been poured out like waters or vapors in the firmament and atmosphere.  This "information" falls upon us all, however it is those who are the Lord's sons and daughters, those who desire the gift of prophecy, those who are called to the office of Prophet and those who are sensitive to the supernatural who will "perceive" what they (we) are receiving through prophecy, word, visions and/or dreams. 
  2. We see in part and we know in part - but all parts are of Truth.  Often we try to "reconcile" that which we may perceive as conflicting prophecies.  I have even heard individuals "argue" (passionately discuss) why "their" word was more accurate, or cancels out or will come to pass over and/or instead of another's.  But the truth is, all Truth is of God, and God's word spoken, will come to pass no matter who receives which part of that truth.
  3. We receive Truth according to how we perceive truth. Truth is measured out with the same measure with which we measure it!  If one person's call or temperament or personality lies in rules and regulations or rights and wrongs, then they will receive a Word and deliver the portion of that Word according to that perspective.  Crazy as it seems, we must "consider the source" when we receive a Word - not to discount that Word, but to piece together all related Words in their proper place and perspective like a puzzle.  A hard worker will receive a Word and deliver that word from the perspective of what you should do in order to accomplish that word.  A person who doesn't like change may receive and deliver that same Word wrapped in a message of waiting instead of doing - and therein lies the conflict.  But if you "do" the Word of the one, and "wait" for the Word to manifest, then you have received both prophets as a prophet and all will receive the prophet's reward.
  4. God has only the BEST in mind for you and planned for you. His prophetic truth is from those plans!  If someone has a prophecy that is not for your best, for your good or for God's plan for you, then it is a prophe-lie!  Now, yes, there are Words of Wisdom or Knowledge that can warn you of impending danger, but those generally come with a way out.  A warning has two parts: stop (the command), or you will get hurt (the impending danger).  A prophecy is specifically a description of what will come to pass according to God's will, purpose or sovereignty.  And God is Good! Any "prophecy" that describes, il-will, or a purpose separate from God's or that which is unrighteous towards His sovereignty is NOT of God.  That prophet is in danger of bringing damnation to themselves, and your spirit will always bear witness to the Spirit of God.  Your spirit will tell you when a "word" is a lie because the Truth lies in you, and therefore a prophe-lie will not be a danger to you.
  5. Unforgiveness, bitterness, covetousness, jealousy, legalism and condemnation - even sins, can cause a believer to receive a Word inaccurately, and deliver that Word inappropriately.  Beware of a word given in a spirit of derision, condemnation, anger or contempt.  That word may be based on some portion of truth, but the believer's own nature will distort what they hear, or think they hear and they will deliver it from that perspective.  God will not honor a word given from the flesh of man's heart - only the truth that comes from His heart.  Say for example you are out of work, and qualified in a specialized field in which it is difficult to acquire the job you have been praying for.  A friend who is working a no-where job, out of the will of God for his own life and suffering for it, receives a word about your career, but it is distorted because of his own jealousy and dissatisfaction.  So he tells you, "yeah well, your time in "cubical hell" is coming. You're getting that job, but be careful what you ask for."  Your spirit cringes from this word - you can't even hear the good news that the job is yours, and you begin to doubt whether you want this job or not.  This is the spirit of unrighteousness in one individual trying to infect your God-given purpose with the spirit of unrighteousness and doubt as well.
  6. Doubt cancels faith; faith fuels your word.  If God speaks a word and you receive that word, it will come to pass.  But as always, we hold the power to our own life and our own death.  Only we can choose not to receive the power, dominion, authority and purpose for which God created us to have - just like Adam and Eve - nothing has changed.  Just because God has spoken a Word for you, doesn't mean it will come to pass no matter what IF you do not receive that it will come to pass.  Your doubt or disbelief will cancel the faith necessary to manifest your Word.  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen." Hebrews 11:1  Without faith, that which you are hoping for cannot come to fruition.  But doubt is like a counter-balance.  You can have faith in God, but doubt the manifestation of a prophecy (even doubting the "how" or the "when" is still doubt), and it is enough doubt to pull against your faith and keep it from manifesting.  If the enemy can, he will work through the sins, unrighteousness or doubt of a Believer who is bringing you a Word, in order to infect your word with enough doubt to keep YOU from allowing it to manifest.  That is why we must discern the spirit by the spirit and receive a prophet as a prophet - the mouth-piece (the Words) of God Himself.
  7. Stay in that Word and remind God of His Word.  Revisiting, remembering and retrieving the prophetic Words given to you, fuels your faith and your belief in them coming to pass.  It strengthens your confidence in God and His love for you.  But reminding God of His Word, strengthens your love for Him.  Like a parent who overhears her child bragging to his friends that his mom is going to take him to Legoland or buy him a bike.  It encourages the mother who has indeed made these promises because it shows that her child believes and trusts her.  And it reminds her of her commitment to those promises - not because they were given without the intent to keep them, but because the reminder strengthens the bond of love between parent and child. It is the love the parent has for the child when making those promises and the love the child has for the parents when receiving the manifestation of those promises.  How much greater are the promises of God and the very nature of God Himself?  We must know that God IS, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.
In All things seek God's Word!
  • Seek Jesus who is the Word abiding in you!
  • Seek the manifestation of the words of the new covenant written upon your heart!
  • Seek the written word of God through His scriptures!
  • Seek the Word of God through His gift of prophecy!
  • And seek the manifestation of the prophetic words spoken over you!
Seek and you shall find, Knock and the door shall be opened unto you!

Power, love and peace, ya'll!

Destiny's Journey

Some journeys are well traveled roads. Common, familiar and easy. We cruise along the path oblivious to the process as we habitually turn each corner, climb each hill and break each slope. Only to arrive, blink and wonder how we managed without incident or memory of the trip.

This journey - my journey - is not like that. This journey is one of reluctance, hesitance, unsurity, insecurity and yes, a moderate amount of fear.

As I open the window for you to view my progress, you will undoubtedly come to your own conclusion based upon the progress of your own journey - and your observations will be varied.

Some might say that I am making slow but steady progress toward a clear destination. Others may say that I am floundering and wandering aimlessly down a muddy road with too many directions to choose from.

I say my journey has just begun, although it started more than 10 years ago. I say I still have such a long, long way to go, although I am teetering on the precipice of completion. I say the journey has made me weary, leery and weak, although I trudge on with a strength and endurance that is beyond me. I say the path is muddy, with many obstacles, directions and difficulties still yet to come. However, my destination is clear - crazy, unimaginable, overwhelming and clear.

When this path first appeared it was like a hazy, dirt road on a foggy day. I peered at it without knowing what it was or where it was going - then tried to ignore it as inconsequential. When the path persisted I joked as to where it might lead, then still tried to dismiss it as a path not meant for me.

It was years before the view of the path cleared and I was able to see the destination more clearly. It was absurd to think that the reality of where this path could end up would be in a place far more outlandish than even my most absurd imaginings! OK, maybe - just maybe this path ended up in a very good place - but a place still not meant for me. Definitely not me.

Why not me? Who else but me, since I was the only one to see? Please, Dear God, not me! Yes, me. This path was meant for me.

And so I watched it, argued with it, denied it and tried to imagine a life without pursuing it.

Four - no five, has it already been five? Five years ago I accepted it. I stuck out a big toe like testing the cold water of a pool - then yanked my foot back like I so often would. I wrote about it, dreamed about it, and tried it on for size in the privacy of my dressing room of life. And by the way, I still watched it, argued with it, denied it and tried to imagine a life without pursuing it.

Three - sorry, I forgot - Four years ago I made up my mind. I packed my bags, said good bye to the sanity and sanctuary of friends and family who always had thought they understood me, and I took my first hesitant and frightened step.

In these last four years I have walked, sometimes trotted, but never quite run toward a goal I think is crazy. I have stopped, I have even sat down and I have wistfully looked back to a time when I did not know and could not see what was meant for me.

But I will not stop. I packed my bags (all my baggage), and made up my mind. Armed with nothing but 2 scriptures and a great deal of hope, I continue to trudge on driven by the surity that if - just if - I happen to arrive at this awesome, fearsome destination, it will be extraordinary, phenomenal and inconceivably wonderful. This destination...

A destination, a journey to a place that is called destiny. My destiny. Destiny's purpose in life. My God given purpose.

Sometimes while we travel, we see another driver, glance in that direction and never take note or give them another thought. Perhaps that is how you will see me.

Sometimes we see another traveler and something catches our eye. We may watch a moment, muse a moment or even briefly wonder... Then they continue on their own separate way and thoughts of them fade as quickly as they do. Perhaps that will be how you see me.

Other times we get caught in traffic, bunched up with drivers because of fate. And whether we cruise along peacefully or struggle with road rage, we share a community of progress, each with our own destination. Perhaps that will be how you experience me.

And on rare occasion on our own individual roads of life, we travel a path where we encounter another driver - seemingly traveling to the same basic place. At times they follow us and then we follow them. We may take note of who they are and what they drive - possibly even read a licence plate. We'll share a moment or even a long while - silently and separately together, with maybe a glance, a smile or a brief a wave of acknowledgement. Perhaps that will be how you experience me.

I cannot say how long this path will be for me, so whether you glance and move on - never to take notice; or whether you wonder a moment at who I am and where I'm going; or whether you follow a while, smile and wave or better yet, if you decide to stay for the journey, I invite you to come along for the ride.
