Simple Ramblings from The Secret Place
The New Prophetic Movement that is rising will challenge the status quo and shake the foundations of passivity and complacency.
These emerging Prophets will have a supernatural ability to see beyond the surface and discern the shifting tides of culture and society and bring forth the needed strategies and solutions for Kingdom Transformation and Reformation.
These Prophetic Voices will only get louder as they speak forth The Word of God in the coming days. They will not bound or limited by men’s traditions or the fear of man, but rather they will be filled and fueled by a burning zeal and passion for The Glory of God being made manifest, and for the advancement of His Kingdom on the Earth.
We will see that the true role and function of the Prophet in the days ahead will not always be a comfortable one — for the double-portion Mantel that they carry will cause divine disruptions to the status quo.
They will often be misunderstood and labeled as troublemakers, or even rejected by those who fear change, and by those who refuse to align with the New Heavenly blueprints and God’s Kingdom design.
Yet, it is precisely in their discomfort that they will find their calling — their God-given Destiny — and come to fully embrace their true Identity
The hallmark of a true Prophet, is someone who can see beyond the here and now. Often they can see what others can’t, and they can tell us where The Body [of Christ] has come in agreement with lies and deception.
Prophets are graced with the supernatural ability to bring to the surface what has laid dormant and caused stagnation.
Prophets will confront The Body, ensuring that it does not become stuck doing the same old things, going round the same old mountain again and again.
Prophets will cause a divine dissatisfaction with the ways things are, in order to bring growth and prosperity as times and seasons change!
These fearless Ones, will speak Words that cut to the core like a sharp two-edged sword, but it will be a necessary surgery that will remove the cancer of complacency and passivity from The Body, and will pave the way for Revival and the Great Harvest.
As we know, Apostles on the other hand are called to build and establish, and they carry the weight of Leadership and the burden of shepherding God’s People in the days ahead.
However, they too can fall into the trap of becoming stagnant and rigid in their approach. This is where the Prophet’s Voice becomes vital, as the two walk shoulder to shoulder.
The Prophetic Office will help to bring the Apostle back to the heart of The Gospel, reminding them of the freedom and life that comes from The Holy Spirit.
In this delicate dance between Prophet and Apostle, The Body will finds its balance and it will truly become a dynamic organism, constantly growing and adapting to the ever-changing world around it.
The Offices of the Prophet and Apostle must work hand in hand, complementing each other’s strengths and covering each other’s weaknesses.
They must never be in competition or conflict with one another, but rather seek to honour and submit to the Authority that each carries.
They must cultivate a culture of unity and partnership for the sake of The Gospel and for the Advancement of The Kingdom above their own agendas.
As The Body of Christ, we must embrace and submit to the Prophetic and Apostolic Offices if we are to grow in greater maturity as Sons and Daughters.
We must allow the Authority and Anointing of these Offices to challenge our structures and expose our blind spots and bring correction to the cracks in our foundations.
We must not be afraid to let go of the old wineskins, which can no longer contain the New Wine — but instead, we must yield to the movement of The Holy Spirit and allow Him to lead us into uncharted territories, in order to take back what has been stolen and to occupy new ground.
So, let us heed the call of the true Prophets and Apostles of Christ in these days. Let us come together in Unity and Humility, recognizing our need for one another like never before.
Only then will we truly begin to see the incredible Kingdom advance that God desires for this new and rising generation.
With the Prophet’s Voice piercing through the darkness, and the Apostle’s hands building the foundations, we can be assured and confident that The Body will begin to thrive and will start to impact and influence the world for Christ!
Blessings to you all.
