Prophetic Insight: Critical Thinking for Critical Times

by | Aug 6, 2021 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

The Year of Release

The Shmita was to be a Sabbath year of rest, a year when slaves were released from captivity and fortunes were restored—it was therefore a time of rest, deliverance and financial restoration. It was a year of freedom and release.

The Year of Release will stretch into a decade of release, with a new spiritual dynamic. We have entered a kingdom era, and God’s plan is for His kingdom to come to earth! As this is such a critical time, it demands critical thinking! I heard the Lord say the words critical thinking, so I went digging.

It is important to differentiate between the kingdom’s approach from the world’s. According to the Foundation for Critical Thinking, it is “the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.”

The Lord, however, revealed that Spirit-led critical thinking is “the God-given ability to cut through what is false from what is true, by applying strategic revelation received from God, in His Word, or directly, to arrive at accurate conclusions with which to proceed and take action.” What may seem logical or reasonable to the world’s standards, yet does not align with the Word and precepts of God, becomes evident in Spirit-led critical thinking. It is vital to grasp this way of thinking as the Leviathan spirit is presently distorting and saturating all communications with deception and mind-control.

Satan employed this trick in the Garden of Eden with both Adam and Eve. Neither was thinking critically by weighing the words spoken against the Word of God. Eve also did not spiritually discern the evil lurking behind words that seemed quite plausible in the moment.

In Matthew 16:22, Peter also failed to discern the greater significance of Jesus’ words. They did not appear to be reasonable and triggered him to step out from his place of a disciple to rebuke Jesus. Peter did not recognize that evil was influencing his reasoning. Jesus had to confront the demonic influence and rebuke him: “Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.” In Matthew 4:7, Satan even tried to use the Word of God to sway Jesus. However, Jesus pierced through the deception with the Word of God.

Reasonable words and logical thinking can lead us on a path to destruction and even hell. Without taking the time to think critically, pray through and discern what God is saying, ensuring that it lines up with the Word of God, puts you on a trajectory toward great trouble. God’s higher ways never seem to make sense in the passion of the moment, so patience is required. We need the light of heaven that releases truth and revelation for the moment and direction for the season ahead.

It is essential to maintain our objectivity in the dichotomy of the present times, to stay balanced and grounded in Christ, in a season characterized by the best and the worst of times, and darkness and light—a time when the wheat and the tares are growing to their fullness.

God will have an administration suitable for this present dispensation; one that is tailored and equipped to meet the challenges of these times—just as He has had for every decade of this century. Because we are alive, we are that generation—this is our destiny!

How do we receive understanding? Light will be breaking through into our consciousness causing us to see and receive revelation. This requires a breaker anointing coming from another dimension that pierces the veil and opens the door or portal to allow light, revelation, and understanding to come through. A word escapes through the veil when someone is positioned rightly in a heart-to-heart connection with the Lord—the breaker comes. Using critical thinking, we then apply what we have seen and heard into the equation.

The veil between the realms and dimensions is now getting thinner—and both heaven and the demonic are taking advantage of this. This is a heightened spiritual time that calls for the supernatural life of Christ in us to come forth.

The path ahead will require a close walk with our Lord and will necessitate becoming fully alive to our identity as supernatural saints in Christ as things may get much uglier before they get better. As the administrators of the season ahead, we must press in to receive all that God wants to deliver to us and begin to think critically as to how He would have it executed. Don’t worry if other people are not understanding what you are getting—in its time they will. It’s an important time to be intentional about grasping and processing what God is saying.

We will not be able to go through the coming days without being deeply rooted in Christ, having full assurance of His lordship over our lives and walking in the fear of the Lord. It is a time to be ready for anything. In the days ahead it will become necessary to recognize that many things are being deliberately labeled as conspiracies to deflect attention. Things can shift suddenly, and like Elijah, we must be ready with our loins girded up, ready to run our supernatural race.

How are we as believers to stand in this hour without fear?
