Go beyond and into the next level of prophetic destiny (John 1).
I believe God is assembling a group who are saying, “We want that place called beyond!”
Look at the prophet John. No one has been greater in the earth than this man who prophesied and said, “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness: make straight the way of the Lord.”
Do you know what he was saying? He was going all the way back to Isaiah 40, hundreds of years earlier, and was quoting what had been prophesied. That’s how God works in our midst.
All of a sudden He will have something spoken into your life that has already been said concerning you, maybe even by Great-Grandpa, that you didn’t even know was said. It was locked up and stored in the heavens. Then all of a sudden, like the rain and snow, He unlocks it and pours it down. Some of you think it’s all about you connecting right now, when it’s really about you receiving.
John said, “I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know. It is He who, coming a er me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose,” (John 1:26–27). “He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire,” (Luke 3:16).
In other words, you’re receiving a baptism now, but there’s one beyond where you presently are. Here’s the problem of getting that new baptism: you are going to have to recognize the Word that is dropping in your path, because that’s what the Bible says is lighting your path.
Some of you might not have had one prophetic word given over you until God quickened one to you from this book. When you receive a prophecy, that word begins to light your path, even if you were in total darkness before now.
That’s how the Spirit of God works. The Spirit of God recently told me this: “You have to come and have a heart to get to know My Son. You have to know Him, because in knowing Him you’ll see what I’m like and see what you’re like.
I sent Him and created you in My image, and by seeing Him and getting to know Him, you can begin to understand Me. But there’s more to it than that. You can get to know who My Son was and can even study the Word like the Pharisees did and still not yield your heart to Him.”
Jesus said to the Pharisees, “You search the Scriptures backward and forward, but you never come to know My Spirit.”
The Son, who is seated in the heavenly places, who has given His Spirit, says, “You must also know My Spirit and what My Spirit is capable of doing in you, or your spirit will never form properly.
If it does not form properly, it will never come into the strength I’ve ordained for it. It will not be able to strengthen your soul, and you will be unable to ascend in new ways to accomplish My will.”
John was saying, “I’m baptizing you one way, but you’re going to have to have another one. You have to go beyond this baptism!”
