Today, I would love to bring forth a loving reminder to my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, especially those who have a ministry platform. Especially even, to those who have eyes to see and may even hold a “prophetic” OR “apostolic” anointing, or office.
Oh, the responsibility that weighs on the lives to those who “see”, those who have prophetic revelational insight into the ways and purposes of God. Oh the responsibility that weighs on the life that even has mandates of reformation and carries insights of the restoration of the forgotten truths to the body of Christ. Oh, the weighty responsibility of the message of God, the secrets of God and most importantly of all the DELIVERY of that message.
For some are called to prophesy, to be mouthpieces of the Lord’s heart delivering His intent and purposes for His beloved. Some are called to forge reformation to a generation of believers who have been found lost and wandering off the road of the truth due to being fed a watered down Gospel, mixed with the wisdom of this world and age. But with this calling comes great responsibility. With the ability to “see” comes great responsibility as to what you do with what you “see”.
We need to remember as “seers”, (now I’m not just talking about those who have heavenly visions and encounters, I am talking to all prophetic mouthpieces who “see” according to the revelatory insight and wisdom into the word of God, a “knowing by discernment”, and also those who dream and encounter visions of the night), I believe all those called to the prophetic “see”, it just depends upon which vehicle you see through. Anyway, we as “seers” need to remember, the reason by which we “see”.
The heart of the “true seer” has a passion for truth. They have a passion to see truth upheld. We know through scripture that the prophetic role is to restore hearts to the Lord and realign that which may be out of alignment. In other word’s, at large, the prophetic office is to release the word of the Lord to bring about repentance into the hearts and lives of His people in order to restore intimacy and fellowship with the Lord.
THE CALL OF THE PLUMBLINE PROPHETS
I see more than ever in this day, the Lord is raising up “plumbline prophets”. Those who are called to restore truths to the church to bring about a plumbline alignment.
Though many can “see” and are equally called to “tell” what they see, I feel the Lord is wanting to remind those that carry these reforming “plumbline truths”, to not forget that it is by MERCY and TRUTH that iniquity is purged out of the heart of a man. Not TRUTH ALONE.
Let us not forget dear brethren, it is by MERCY AND TRUTH that iniquity is purged out of the heart of a man. (Proverbs 16:6 AMPC)
Truth coated in Mercy is delivered from a heart of humility, even though the content of the word may be very confronting and challenging. A word given in Mercy still can be a word of fire to burn up stubborn resistances, a word like a hammer, which breaks in pieces the most stubborn resistance. A word in Mercy does not mean a fluffy, tickling of the ear prophesy, which some misinformed brethren believe. But it is those words of alignments, those words that may be particually confronting and challenging that need the most Mercy upon the delivery.
We need to discern the heart from which all words are delivered. Words that are not coated in Mercy bring forth a sense of condemnation and are coming from a place of pride and arrogance of the deliverer, rather than revealing and representing the heart of the Father to hearer. Repentance will not be the result of these words, but rather condemnation and fear.
HUMILTY IS THE MARK OF THE SPIRITUALLY MATURE
I have said before in other posts that “humility is the marker of the spiritually mature”. Not the revelations of which these people share. Please read my post from 15 October 2017.
When truth or secrets of God’s heart are used in a manner to mock and scorn those who don’t hold that revelation or to judge and condemn, it promotes disunity rather than unity. These vessels obviously still hold an orphan mentality and would be better getting those areas in their hearts healed than use the truths and revelations of God to make themselves feel better by making themselves look higher than those they deliver the “correction” to.
Oh that the Prophets of this age would hold this heart. Oh that the Prophets and Apostles of this age would come into a greater maturity through the valley of humility. That they would not boast in encounters and heavenly experiences to elevate themselves, but rather use these encounters and experiences to promote desire in the body of Christ to repent and run into the heart of the one who truly holds the keys to eternal life.
I believe the Lord is bringing these ones through. I see ones the Lord is bringing forth. These reformers are both Apostles and Prophets who have been baptized in the Jordan river of “death to themselves” and truly are being raised up in humility and love and will speak forth the truth and revelations coated with mercy for the purpose of bringing forth a bride purified and purged of iniquity. These words will be strong words of repentance, but will demonstrate the heart of the father who by His love draws men to repentance. (Romans 2:4)
