Prophetic Word: ‘Welcome to the School of the Mouth’

by | Nov 26, 2019 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

Recently I’ve had numerous encounters with the Lord and dreams regarding “speaking” and the “mouth.” In 2020 and beyond, we are moving into an era of declaration. I believe right now the Lord is teaching His people, giving them a deeper understanding of the power of their words, the power of decreeing the Word of God and their authority in Christ.

As I sought the Lord about these encounters and dreams, I heard Him say, “Welcome to the school of the mouth!”

There is an invitation being extended by the Lord right now to enter into a time of being schooled by the Holy Spirit in the power of our words like never before. “Your words are so powerful that they will kill or give life, and the talkative person will reap the consequences” (Prov. 18:21, TPT).

I heard the Lord say, “I am raising the standard in the lives of many, through the revelation of My Word, in the words that they speak.”

The Lord has already begun to shine His light upon His Word and speak to many people about the power of declaration, but this major shift is going to continue and increase because this is the new era where we shall decree a thing and it shall be established (Job 22:28).

Conviction Upon the Tongue: No More Careless Words

“Careless words stab like a sword, but wise words bring healing” (Prov. 12:18, NCV).

“Reckless words are like the thrusts of a sword, cutting remarks meant to stab and to hurt. But the words of the wise soothe and heal” (Prov. 12:18, TPT).

“You can be sure of this: when the day of judgment comes, everyone will be held accountable for every careless word he has spoken. Your very words will be used as evidence against you, and your words will declare you either innocent or guilty” (Matt. 12:36-37, TPT).

As I continued to seek the Lord’s heart, I felt that this beautiful invitation to be schooled by Him would lead to a realm of revelation and re-introduction to the authority and power of decree and the Word of God. I strongly felt the fear of God, sensing that there is a weighty responsibility entrusted to us to steward our words well in this new era.

The Holy Spirit spoke again: “Fire is coming upon the tongue. I am bringing major deliverance to My people from wrong declarations.”

There is a major purification and conviction of the Holy Spirit coming to the body of Christ to bring conviction and purification of words that are spoken. For the Lord is going to bring forth deep healing in the hearts of many, where they will say “yes” to entering into the school of the mouth.

“…For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Matt. 12:34, MEV).

The Lord is going to continue to convict and highlight words that are flowing out of mouths that are not in line with the Word of God. It is the love of God that is going to bring the correction. He is going to the root of lies, unforgiveness, bitterness and the place of simple, “careless speech.” He is training His people in the power of words and the tongue because we are moving into a time where decrees will be made about what the Lord is saying and there will be sudden manifestations.

When the Lord said, “Fire is coming upon the tongue,” He spoke of conviction and purification, but He also spoke of commissioning. This is the era where fire will fall upon tongues, and a commissioning will take place in greater ways for those being positioned to speak, sing and declare the Word of the Lord. Many have lost their voices, and this is the era where voices will be restored.

There is a mighty wave of His deliverance being released upon the tongue to deliver the people of God from declaring things that are not His heart, not what He is saying and not His truth. God is dealing with lies and half truths and leading His people into a place of declaring what He is saying in alignment with His Word.

Heavenly Wisdom That Has Never Been Seen Before

I heard the Lord say, “Those that embrace the school of the mouth will have mouths that flow with heavenly wisdom that has never been seen before.”

By the Lord’s Spirit, those who participate in this “school of the mouth” will see major revelation and impartations of wisdom being released to them. They will open their mouths and out will flow revelation of His wisdom and the mind of Christ. The level of wisdom God is going to release will be unprecedented.

It’s all about yielding to the process and training of the Lord, speaking what He sees and then seeing the manifestation of what He speaks.

The Lord showed me that many are speaking words of death over their lives, not words of life; but there is a mighty summon of the Lord to stand and to speak only that which He speaks—to speak life. The Lord is going to demonstrate like never before the power of words, decreeing His Word and blessing.

Increase in Authority to Speak What the Lord Is Saying

“For if you remain silent at this time, protection and deliverance for the Jews will be ordained from some other place, but you and your father’s house shall be destroyed. And who knows if you may have attained royal position for such a time as this?” (Esth. 4:14).

In this “Esther,” “Joseph” and “Daniel” era, there will be ever-increasing doors that are going to open to many in the body of Christ, moving them into different mountains of culture to speak forth the Word of the Lord. In this “school of the mouth” they will receive the wisdom and blueprint strategies from heaven to answer the problems and issues that kings and leaders will need. We can see that this has already begun, but it is going to increase in momentum like we have never seen before. The church will be called on to speak the wisdom of God in places of significant influence that will shift and change nations.

There is not only a mighty deliverance upon His people from wrong declarations, but there is also a mighty deliverance in cities and nations through prayer and the declaration and decree of His Word to those of influence—those leading the mountains of culture.

I heard the Lord say, “In 2020 and beyond there will be mighty demonstrations of My decrees suddenly unlocking the destiny in nations in ways that have never been seen before.”

Explosive demonstrations of the deliverance of God are about to be seen in prayer and intercession as the Word of God is decreed and declared. There will be demonstrations of the power of the Word of God through decree, where sudden shifts and manifestations will happen in accelerated momentum. These demonstrations will not be “sporadic” and just “here or there,” but it will become normal to see swift shifts and answered prayer through the decree of His Word.

Dealing With Backbiting

The Lord showed me that there is much “backbiting” that is taking place in the body of Christ right now. There are “words being spoken in secret” that are really partnering with a spirit of witchcraft and bringing curses upon fellow believers. The fire of God and His conviction is coming in greater increase to deal with the backbiting and the words that have been spoken over one another that are bringing division and heartache. The Lord is doing a deep work in the body of Christ to bring His people into a place of brotherly love, unity and honoring one another.

“Greater love has no man than this: that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).

I saw the fear of God coming upon the church. There will be repentance, en masse, over “backbiting words” and “careless words” that have been spoken, and a revival of honor and love will blossom in many ways, and many of those ways will be unexpected.

“And never let ugly or hateful words come from your mouth, but instead let your words become beautiful gifts that encourage others; do this by speaking words of grace to help them” (Eph. 4:29, TPT).

Limitations Will Be Removed as Words Change

There are limitations that many are living under right now, and some of those limitations are connected to the words that they are prophesying over themselves and others. Where this beautiful invitation to the “school of the mouth” is accepted, the Lord will remove and shatter these limitations, and the truth of the Word of God will shine bright to expose, uproot, untangle and activate.

The year 2020 and beyond will be a decade to declare and decree; a decade of the boldest faith we have ever seen. A people will arise with increasing conviction of the power of the Word, and with His words on their lips. They will see mountains move.

The Power of the Mustard Seed

The Lord spoke to me and said that in 2020 and beyond He will demonstrate the power of the mustard seed (Matt. 17:20)! God is training His people in their decrees and declarations and leading them into a major increase of faith that they already have in Christ.

The signs, wonders and miracles that will be seen in this decade of decree will be astounding, and the invitation to the Lord’s “school of the mouth” is the preparation to walk in these creative miracles. The fire of His purification is falling now upon tongues so that tongues may carry His fire like never before.

The invitation is being released. Will you say yes? Invite the Holy Spirit to come; give Him permission to do whatever He has to do to purify your mouth, teach you and prepare you to partner with Him in this new decade of decree. {eoa}
