A Humpty Dumpty Moment for the Prophetic Movement

by | Feb 3, 2021 | Blogs, The Plumb Line

In November, I heard the Lord say, “The prophetic movement is facing a Humpty Dumpty moment.”

You may think, “What a strange thing to hear.” I thought so, too. But upon prayer and exploration of Humpty Dumpty, it’s certainly fitting.

Humpty Dumpty is a character in a Mother Goose nursery rhyme first printed in 1810. Lewis Carroll’s book, Alice Through the Looking Glass made the rhyme famous. But the rhyme dates further back, as far as the 1600s.

So, what does Humpty Dumpty symbolize? As it turns out, Humpty Dumpty was a 15th century nickname in England to describe large people. There are a few theories as to the historical meaning. Some say Humpty Dumpty speaks of an egg on a wall that falls, and we all know a cracked egg can’t be uncracked. Some say it speaks of a canon during the English Civil War in 1648 that could not be repaired. Still others say it refers to King Richard III, who had a humpback.

The April 2016 Encounter

But the Lord wasn’t speaking of a direct historical parallel. He was speaking of a right now moment in the prophetic movement. As documented on many videos and several of my books, in 2016, after discussing some grievous issues in modern prophetic ministry with two senior leaders in the body of Christ, I felt a strong burden to pray. I got down on my knees to pray, planning to press in for about five minutes, and that turned into over an hour.

The five-minute prayer morphed into travail that left me on the hardwood floors of my condo weeping, sweating and groaning in the Spirit. I was lying in a puddle of my own tears as the Lord showed me the state of some camps in the modern-day prophetic movement and gave me a glimpse as to how the enemy wanted to pollute them with various forms of idolatry and immorality, deceive them with extra-biblical extremes, and tempt them to eat from Jezebel’s table and ignite strange fire.

When the Lord showed me in April 2016 the next five years were vital for the prophetic movement, I was overwhelmed. I thought, “What can I possibly do to change this? I am just one person, and God is raising up multiplied thousands of prophetic voices in the years ahead.” I knew I couldn’t fix it all …
