The Arrows Are Not Hitting the Target
but Are Harming Others!
“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it,” Isaiah 55:10-11.
“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked,” Ephesians 6:16.
“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice,” Ephesians 4:31.
The Spirit of the LORD showed me a bow and arrow and as each arrow was let go it went forth in flames to hit a target, but as I watched the arrow left its mark and circled around hitting others around me.
I noticed that some who were near by caught on fire and their bodies were aflame. Then the vision faded.
“I tell you that there are many who are in body in this hour who are shooting their arrows at one another. For the flames from these arrows that were once designed to hit the mark have now left the target.
For there are some who have been given a prophetic gifting, and at one time they were hitting the mark, but now because of pride and anger the arrows that were at one time designed to bless and lift-up others is now hurting them.
Surely there are words from Me that are to bless and encourage, and there are also words sent out to warn and rebuke. All have their place and all come from my throne untainted.
But men and women sometimes have their own agendas. Sometimes because of hurt feelings and bitterness what was at one time meant for good, now is turned into a dangerous thing.
For the enemy has turned some of these things and by his dark designs, those words have been infused with the darkness. You see, the enemy can twist anything. He can attempt to mimic the gifts of mine by his dark thoughts and whisperings.
But I tell you to stand your ground against him. Come to Me with a pure heart and I will wipe the slate clean.
He knows that he has just a little time left. And he sits in his dark corner devising evil plots. But if you would discern these things you would know when he attempts to do them.”
