This vision came to me last night and woke me up at exactly 12:00 midnight.
In my vision, I was having a heart to heart conversation with my eldest brother when I was teleported to O.R. Tambo International Airport in South Africa.
I saw friends came to welcome me and straight away I was taken to a 3-arm Hall. In one of the Halls, I saw a prophet ministering to a group of people.
He had their legs tied up with a rope which extended to their hands, giving them limited freedom to walk and use their hands. He told them it was a ‘prophetic symbol’ of their freedom and the people willingly did as they were instructed.
Three days had passed and I was ministering in another arm of the complex Halls. To my greatest amazement, I seemed to be ministering to a set of people whose arm’s and feet were tied, but it appears they were Bible School students who were probably matriculating or graduating or possibly both sets.
I had taught them more about Jesus Christ and their freedom in Him. The ropes that held their hands and feet became weakened that at a slight move it would fall off. The students were so willing and excited to know what they were learning.
The students were all standing on their tables having understood the deception they had fallen into, and were excited to be set and made free from it.
Looking towards the entrance door, was the prophet and his team coming back angrily at what was going on and one of the team members tried pulling some of the students down from the table to sit down but the student refused looking straight into my eyes and smiling.
Then I said to them, “A Bible School is not just a place to acquire Knowledge, but a place for encounter with The LORD Jesus Christ, Who is the same yesterday, today and forever more!”
At exactly 12:00 midnight I woke up into prayers for God’s people in South Africa.
I believe in the Prophetic Ministry and by His Grace I function in it.
I also believe that sometimes the Prophetic Ministry may speak through symbols like prophet Agabus, using Paul’s waist belt to tie him dissuading him from going to the Jew’s for ministration (Acts 21:10-11).
But I ADVISE, do not get carried away by Prophetic Symbols which are only shadows conveying a message — but are not the message itself!
TRUE prophetic ministries are centered on the person of Jesus Christ and His Redemptive Work which He wrought on The Cross through the Grave till the presentation of His Blood in the heavenly Mercy Seat as our High Priest of the New Testament!
God is sending teaching Priests to walk and work among His people who will show them JESUS CHRIST and because they REVEAL Jesus Christ to the people, it will stir up a violent temper in the hearts of those prophets who use God’s people as their pawns and money making machines.
The anger in the heart of the prophet was to kill me but he could not execute his enterprise before he and his team walked away.
