Prophecy: The Shepherd’s Rod Will Break You Out of Perilous Times

by | Apr 20, 2021 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

Many leaders in the body of Christ have similarly shared how they have been enduring trying times of testing in the last several weeks. It is almost as if the level of witchcraft and warfare has increased and intensified since the last season of Passover and Unleavened Bread.

This is occurring because a spring cleaning and a sweeping move of the Holy Spirit is taking place, which means that there is detachment and deliverance from the old soulish things and an opportunity to grow up into the new. These are growing pains that expose the immature, and the enemy will be defeated.

Are You in the Valley?

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me” (Ps. 23:4).

The valley many times stands for a place of depth and loneliness, of immense darkness and isolation. It also stands for testing and challenging, aggravating opposition and attacks.

The church is getting ready to come out of the valley of death, doom and destruction.

You are being led by our perfect saving Shepherd, through the valley of the shadow of death, to dwell in green pastures and to drink of His quiet waters by the power of the Holy Spirit.

His arm is not too short to save! “Certainly, the hand of the Lord is not so short that it cannot save, nor is His ear so dull that it cannot hear” (Isa. 59:1).

You Are Coming Out

“He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters” (Ps. 23:2).

The Lord will not leave you to die in the desert of desolation, but He will lead you out of the cave with great strength, joy, victory, plunder and jubilation!

This is your season to come out fully from the pit of death! Stop dillydallying with one foot in and one foot out. Step out and come out in the name of Jesus!

You are coming out of the pit of betrayal and the prison of the forgotten, and you are being placed into the palace of promotion and power! The mighty hand of God is moving and relocating you!

More Than Conquerors

You are coming out of the valley with great strength and plunder. You are coming out of Sheol with Christ’s keys of death and Hades.

“And I have the keys of Hades and of Death” (Rev. 1:18b).

Just like Daniel’s three friends, you are coming out of the fire unharmed and unscathed, and all those around you will fear God because of the intense testings you have endured.

“The hair of their heads was not singed, their cloaks were not harmed, and no smell of fire had come upon them” (Daniel 3:27b, ESV).

Heaven Will Strengthen You

It is the anointing that breaks the yoke, and in these 32 days of preparation unto Pentecost power, the Lord is releasing an outpouring of His presence to break you free from every shame, chain, slander, attack and bondage.

The old you will not define you any longer. The defilement of the past will not cling around your name and reputation. You are breaking free from the word curses of men and the commentaries and opinions of false news broadcasters.

A fresh and new level of God’s anointing is being poured out over you to start again, with a second wind from heaven.

“You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over” (Ps. 23:5b, MEV). {eoa}
