This is the season of graduations. It is such a joyous time to celebrate one’s accomplishments in school and know that you finally made it to the end of your learning period and it is now time to go out into the world!
The LORD brought to my mind the “School of the Prophets,” and how it is so important for us to sit at our Teacher’s Feet and listen to His every Word and learn from Him; that we might then go forth into this world in the Power of The Holy Spirit, hearing only His Voice, doing only what He does, speaking only what He speaks.
Listen, beloved sisters and brothers. You have been in Holy Spirit “School of the Prophets!” and it is graduation time!
I saw The Bride of Christ, wearing her graduation cap and tassel. It was not large and grand, but very plain with a blue tassel. Blue is the color of Heaven. It is the color of Sapphire, the color of the stones beneath God’s Feet as He walks.
It was the color of the Jews’ tassels on their garments to remind them of God and His Word to them. A blue tassel is what the sick people touched on Jesus’ robe and they were healed.
“It was not “magic” but it was a sign that the One wearing it was anointed. And so it is with you, Child of God. All who have desired to prophecy shall. It is time for the humble prophets to come forth, who do not desire the best seats in the house, or to be given a title, or do all their deeds to be noticed by people.
They are the Graduating Class of The Holy Spirit, raised up for such a time as this. They hold the diploma of Heavenly Knowledge, the Seven Spirits of God!
“Beloved. Well done, My good and faithful one. The Humble Ones are being exalted. The greatest among you is a servant and not a leader, for only One is your Leader, and your Father, and your Teacher.
I have chosen you from your mother’s womb as a prophet to The Nations. Yes, My Child. It is now possible to reach nations on the AIRWAYS. The internet is a Highway through the Heavens conceived and created by Me for these last days to touch the world.
I have made a Way where there was no way. I have been teaching you throughout your life, even when you did not know it or believe it.
Even when you did not know Me, I knew you. Even if you do not believe you are called, I believe in you.
For I know you, I have called you by name, you are Mine. I have called you to be My Hands and Feet and My Mouthpiece — My Voice crying in the wilderness.
You shall be My Street Prophets. No big building, no big budget, no big name. My Name is in you and you are marked by The Holy Spirit. When I call you, you shall say, “Speak, LORD, for your servant hears.”
Oh, how proud I AM of you, My Child. For you to live is Christ, to die is gain. You have only desired to sit at My Feet and learn from Me.
All the Treasures of Wisdom and Knowledge are now yours. You have the Mind of Christ. You have graduated to Heavenly Places! The Spirit of The LORD rests on you — the Spirit of Wisdom and of Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel and of Power, the Spirit of Knowledge and of the Fear of The LORD.
Congratulations, Beloved. You have graduated with highest honors. You hold the Highest Degree.
Let your heart be encouraged, My Prophet, that the Knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, in whom are hidden ALL the Treasures of wisdom and knowledge, is now yours.
You are My Life giving spirits in bodily form. For in Christ dwells ALL the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Me, who is the Head of all principality and power.”
In the Old Testament, there were six locations where these prophetic schools or guilds existed: Ramah, Bethel, Gilgal, Jericho, Carmel and Samaria. Ira Price, in his article “The Schools of the Sons of the Prophets” (The Old Testament Student 8 , 245-246), describes how at these locations new generations of prophets were trained up, usually under the guidance of a few seasoned prophets. It was very important to figure out who were authentic and false prophets, because these would be the people who not only spoke the words of The LORD, but also the people would lead these prophetic schools. In the New Testament, the Spirit of Prophecy is the Testimony of Jesus. We ALL are to prophesy! The Holy Spirit is our Teacher, Jesus is the Head Master.
“I have written these things to you about those who are trying to deceive you. And as for you, the Anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But just as His TRUE and genuine anointing teaches you about all things, so remain in Him as you have been taught.” 1 John 2:26-27.
Bible verses about the “School of the Prophets”:
“When Saul was told that David was at Naioth in Ramah, he sent messengers to capture him. But when they saw the GROUP OF PROPHETS prophesying, with Samuel leading them, the Spirit of God came upon them, and Saul’s messengers also began to prophesy. When this was reported to Saul, he sent more messengers, but they began to prophesy as well. So Saul tried again and sent messengers a third time, and even they began to prophesy.” 1 Samuel 19:19-21.
“After that you will come to Gibeah of God, where the Philistines have an outpost. As you approach the city, you will meet a COMPANY OF PROPHETS coming down from the high place, preceded by harps, tambourines, flutes, and lyres, and they will be prophesying.” 1 Samuel 10:5.
“If He calls you, you shall say, ‘Speak, Lord, for your servant hears.”” 1 Samuel 3:9.
“Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and in order.” 1 Corinthians 14:39-40.
“Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Revelation 19:10.
Bible verses about “The Tassel”:
“Speak to the sons of Israel, and tell them that they shall make for themselves TASSELS on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and that they shall put on the tassel of each corner a cord of blue.” Numbers 15:38.
“Just then, a woman who had suffered from bleeding for 12 years approached from behind and touched the TASSEL on His robe, for she said to herself, “If I can just touch His robe, I’ll be made well! But Jesus turned Him about, and when He saw her, He said, “Daughter, be of good comfort; your faith has made you whole.” And the woman was made whole from that hour.” Matthew 9:20-22.
“When the men of that place recognized Him, they alerted the whole vicinity and brought to Him all who were sick, and they implored Him that they might just touch the TASSEL of His Robe; and as many as touched it were made perfectly whole.” Matthew 14:35-36.
“The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them. They tie up heavy burdens and lay them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger. But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men; for they broaden their phylacteries and lengthen the TASSELS of their garments. They love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues, and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called Rabbi by men. But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. “Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. But the greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.” Matthew 23:2-12.
Bible verse about “Sapphire”:
“Above the expanse over their heads was the likeness of a throne with the appearance of SAPPHIRE, and on the throne high above was a figure like that of a Man. From what seemed to be His waist up, I saw a gleam like amber, with what looked like fire within it all around. And from what seemed to be His waist down, I saw what looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded Him.” Ezekiel 1:26-27.
Bible verse “Hidden Treasure of Knowledge and Wisdom”;
“that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, and attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Now this I say lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words. Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” Colossians 2:2-10.
