Prophetic Vision: Jesus Told Me, ‘Your Hearts Have Been Hardened’

by | Sep 18, 2019 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

Love is a basic message. However, it is a message we aren’t hearing from the pulpits. It is a message that needs to reverberate in our souls.

Our spirit man knows love, because a key characteristic of Christ is love. However, are we allowing our soul to be love and give love?

This morning as I was in worship, the Spirit of the Lord came in powerfully and a new song came up prophetically from within me. As I was singing and ministering over my team in the room, the word love came up. The Spirit of the Lord started to speak to me about love.

I had a vision, and the thought came to me that as we look in Jesus’ eyes, we see nothing but love. What are people seeing as they look into our eyes? Are our eyes exuding the love of Christ?

When we are in His presence and then leave His presence, love exudes from us from all sides and people can see His tangible love upon us and feel His presence. We have the Holy Spirit residing on the inside of us. The very conduit of love. Shouldn’t we be displaying His love whether or not we just stepped out of His presence?

The Lord wants us to display His love. He was speaking to me specifically about the love people need to have for their family members. I heard Him say, “hearts have been hardened and closed off.” He wants your heart pliable and moldable.

He spoke to me and said, “Your hearts have been hardened because you feel entitled to a debt. You want repayment and justification for something another person has done to you.” You aren’t owed anything. Christ paid the debt at the cross. Your responsibility is to forgive and move on as Jesus did at the cross. It is your duty to be love.

The Lord continued to reveal to me that we don’t trust God; therefore, we can’t trust our loved ones to change. We don’t believe they can change. When we aren’t believing our loved ones can change and be healed and delivered, we aren’t believing that the Holy Spirit can do a work in them as He did in us.

Our believing our loved ones can change and not being discouraged by them is connected to our distrust or trust in God. We have to look beyond the person, and beyond the principality operating through them, and trust in our heavenly Father for what He can accomplish in them and through them. This will happen by us being love to them. When we exude love, they will experience His love and change will come forth.

Love must be deep within our soul, not just our spirit. Love must come forth out of our mind, will and emotions. Love doesn’t come out when we haven’t been in His presence. It is in His presence that love comes forth, and we can release it to others. But how can we release what we don’t have?

There is a shift coming in this season—a spiritual shift and a natural shift. Great things are going to happen, but we first must go forth in love so that, as this increase and shift happens, people see the greatest gift of all: the love of God. {eoa}
