I hear The Spirit say, “Watch! For now there is a sharper, heavier and more valuable Anointing coming forth from the muddy waters of deep discouragement and deep wounding.
Watch! It’s time for the axe-head to float on water!”
“One day the guild of prophets came to Elisha and said, “You can see that this place where we’re living in is getting cramped, we have no elbow room. Give us permission to go down to the Jordan where each of us will get a log. We’ll build a roomier place.”
Elisha said, “Go ahead.”
One of them then said, “Please! Come along with us!”
He said, “Certainly.”
He went with them. They came to the Jordan and started chopping down trees. As one of them was felling a timber, his valuable axe-head flew off and sank into the deep river.
“oh no, master!” he cried out. “and it was borrowed!”
The holy man said, “Where did it sink?”
The man showed him the place.
Elisha cut off a branch and tossed it at the spot and the axe-head floated up.
“Grab it,” he said. The man reached out and took hold of it.” 2 Kings 6:1-7.
I believe in this hour, God is exposing the True Anointing from a counterfeit anointing.
In this powerful story, we see the works of the flesh/ counterfeit being thrown into the water (the log that Elijah threw into the spot where the axe-head sank) and what emerged from the muddy waters was the sharp, heavy and valuable axe-head.
Prophetically, I see many in The Body of Christ who have been living in places of confinement, fear and restriction.
Many of God’s gifted and anointed sons and daughters have been controlled, hindered and held back by ungodly and unloving leadership.
Many have become stifled, their gifts have lain stagnant and dormant in the muddy waters of deep wounding and deep discouragement.
Many have felt like they have lost their sharp edge and have become dull and redundant.
But… take heart! You whom The LORD calls, “My Courageous Ones.”
See in this season the Loving and Redeeming Hand of God reaching down and lifting up and bringing out these fearless, highly anointed and skillful warriors.
I see The Hand of The Father binding up their wounds and healing their broken hearts. The mighty Breaker is here, to shatter the shackles of doubt and fear. No longer will the place of confinement and restriction hold them.
Many are now being supernaturally propelled forward. The Father is launching them out into a much broader and more fruitful place, a promised place and position of glorious Abundance, Expansion, Increase and Overflow.
I see in this hour there is greater, heavier, sharper and more valuable Anointing that is coming forth from the muddy depths of despair and the murky waters of confusion and disillusionment.
Many are now receiving new and clear visions, for this greater, heavier, sharper and more valuable Anointing will surely turn things upside down and inside out.
It will supernaturally change, transform and reform the Nations of the earth. For behold, The LORD is doing a new thing in the midst of you!
Blessings to you all.
