A Season for ‘New’ Prophetic Declaration

by | May 7, 2012 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

These past weeks, I felt the Lord leading me to do certain things
like sorting through my old records, files and to do housecleaning
(throwing out things that are no longer useful to me). This gave me
time to work and talk with the Lord. In the process, I found myself
sharing my struggles with Him.

I felt that I have not done enough for Him. As I go over the years
past, I noticed that many times I felt the Lord leading me to do
something which I obeyed wholeheartedly, then along the way events
overtook me and I had to let go of those projects and let go of the
vision.

These experiences make me feel like I have been a failure. The
enemy of our soul has been quick to pick up the momentum to
continually use these memories to torment us about our shortcomings.
Many times I felt that I have missed my calling, failed the Lord and
am a total failure. I was in this state of mind when the Lord
interrupted me with that “small still voice” to
give me His message. Furthermore, it was impressed to me that this
message is not for me alone. Many of God’s warriors
are standing in the same place where I am now. So my prayer
is that as I share this message with the body of Christ, that you
please allow the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart
as well.

First, God brought to my mind the prophet Jeremiah, and how in the
midst of the calamity that was about to befall Jerusalem, God asked
the prophet to buy a field which, if taken on face value, was a very
foolish act. These were Jeremiah’s words to Baruch and the other
witnesses:

“In their presence, I gave Baruch these instructions: … ‘Take
these documents, both the sealed and unsealed copies of the deed of
purchase, and put them in a clay jar so they will last a long time.
For this is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Houses,
fields and vineyards will again be bought in this land’” (Jer.
32:13-15, NIV).

“Once more fields will be bought in this land which you say, ‘It
is a desolate waste, without men or animals, for it has been handed
over to the Babylonians.’ Fields will be bought for silver, and
deeds will be signed, sealed and witnessed … because I will restore
their fortunes, declares the Lord” (Jer. 32:43-44).

Then, the Lord reminded me of the story of Hosea who married an
adulterous wife and took her back, even when she left Hosea for
another man (Hosea 1, 3). As I was pondering what these stories have
to do with my own situation, I felt the Holy Spirit
speaking the words below to me. As always, please test them and allow
the Holy Spirit
to speak to your heart.

“When you obey Me, great things are taking place in the
heavenlies. My beloved, you know that I do not see as a man does, nor
do I act as a human does. Even the smallest thing that you do for Me
has great significance in the kingdom of God. Therefore, listen and I
will explain to you the spiritual significance of your life. You,
beloved, are called ‘children and saints of the Most High God.’
Your very life is an intercession for God’s
kingdom to be established on earth. Every word that you speak, every
action that you take, must not be judged nor measured by their
outward appearance because all these have greater spiritual value.

“Look at Jeremiah and Hosea; when they followed My command,
their actions were prophetic declarations of what is
in My heart. They were symbolic of things that are happening and of
things to come. The same is true with you today. Many times I will
call you to do things which appear foolish, unreasonable and
insignificant in the eyes of men. But when you obey Me, great things
are taking place in the heavenlies.

“Nations are being marked, families are being saved, spiritual
barriers are being broken and My kingdom is being push forward. Every
action that you make has meaning. When I asked you to do physical
housecleaning, and as you began to throw away things that are not
needed, so I am also doing housecleaning in the hearts and minds of
men and even in the midst of nations. Begin to listen intently and
you will hear and see the Holy Spirit showing you
people, nations and visions of the significance of these actions.

“At times, scenes from war movies will be brought to your mind.
You will see soldiers marking boundaries, breaking enemy barriers and
claiming lands for their leader. As you have seen them in your
spirit, and as you act them out and declare them, so the same is
already happening in the heavenlies. These pictures represent angels
carrying out your orders as you declare them prophetically.
As you do your regular exercise and walk around, you will hear the
Holy Spirit
guiding you of how to claim nations for Me.

“Every step that you take represents something spiritual. As you
do any acts led by the Holy Spirit, listen to Him
and ask Him for the spiritual meaning and significance for these, and
as you do speak them forth. Just know My precious ones that nothing
you do is insignificant. Do not worry about the end result of what
you are lead to do. Just do what I told you to do. And one day, when
we are together, you will understand the importance of your obedience
to Me.

“This day, I pour down a new anointing upon you all. Go,
declare, and take My kingdom back for Me from the clutches of the
enemy. Remember: I am God. I am in control. I love you dearly.”

This is the message of the Lord for His children this season. Amen
and amen, Lord.
