I recently completed a mission of delivering a series of messages through the state of Kentucky. I was sent by God, based on a prophetic word, to give answers and a pathway to the future. I want to share the details here as I know it’s a “now word” for the Body of Christ.
The Lord has spoken several things to me over the last year about awakening and the early Church. The first thing He told me was, “You will not see awakening until you heal the brokenness in people’s hearts caused by disappointments, unfulfilled dreams and a host of other things causing hope to be deferred. People are full of disappointments, but they are hiding it well.” Hope deferred means it has been put off to a future time. When hope gets deferred, it stops true faith from working and brings a halt to our forward advance. In short, it causes a barrenness in our lives.
The Lord took me to Hannah and showed me her barrenness. She had a great desire to have a child that would serve the Lord. But the dream she carried did not come to pass and brokenness settled in. When you study the depths of the word broken it comes from a word meaning to be caught in a rut, to replay the sounds of a detrimental event. Hannah had to put up with the mocking and ridicule of everyone around her year after year. She was going to the temple regularly and doing the right things. She was paying her tithes, praying, seeking God and living right but was still barren. In other words, she was fulfilling her obligations but deep in her heart she was bitter, grieved, afflicted, and sorrowful. (Read 1 Samuel) Her confession was right but her state of being did not align with it. She had gotten into a rut playing the sounds of unfulfilled promise over and over. Sounds very familiar doesn’t it? An unfulfilled promise is not God’s disapproval of you. The dream or promise in your heart exists to keep hope alive.
I agree we have good solid meetings and God is doing things, but I see a real barrenness that has settled in. This barrenness has stopped the Samuels sitting in the womb of the Ecclesia from coming forth to point to the Davids who will truly build the dwelling of the Lord. Like Hannah, we must change the frequency we are speaking and realign with the frequency of heaven. She promised God that she would return her male child to Him if He would bless her womb. This is the struggle we are having right now; we want an awakening, but we want to own it. It seems we are trying to find a pathway that we can have some form of ownership in. We need to heal broken heartedness and break barrenness off people like I did with my own people and those in Kentucky.
The second thing the Lord showed me was the early Church had a given message. The message became so much a part of their lives, it compelled them to go on mission. The mission turned to momentum and the momentum turned into a movement. I told the people in Kentucky I did not come to do some meetings but to build and lay a foundation to come back and build upon. Today most of our traveling and speaking is not building and our messages are more random. The early Church was very intentional in building upon a set message. They were so consumed with the message that it became who they were, they then took themselves as the living epistle on mission. Once people valued the message, the momentum started and eventually a movement was formed. I released this Biblical pattern in detail in Kentucky.
The Lord showed me a third thing. Where did they get the message from? We can easily just say heaven, the Holy Spirit, etc. But there is more to it than that. They fellowshipped with the mysteries of Christ. The Lord told me that awakening comes by one way, fellowshipping with the mysteries of Christ. In Eph. 3 Paul said part of his role as an apostle was to show all men how to fellowship with the mysteries. That is challenging, how do we do that? Looking at Paul’s life, he spells out that he fellowshipped with seven specific mysteries. They are the mystery of iniquity, the Church as a bride, regeneration, Israel’s blindness, the indwelling Christ, the translation of the saints, and the Church. Fellowshipping means to have intimate knowledge. We can easily see these seven mysteries made up Paul’s message.
The fourth thing the Lord showed me was how Hannah’s frequency changed as she fellowshipped with the mysteries to resonate with them until it broke the barrenness and released the destiny of the nation. There is a big difference between producing and resonating. Something reproduced is a cheap copy and holds no real value. Hence like most of the meetings we do. We have learned how to produce a good sound, preach a great message, copy mannerisms, and appear ‘un-barren’ or fruitful. We have stopped being an original, a masterpiece, a one-of-a-kind, wonderfully made and unique in every fashion. Something produced is based on the skill set and gifting of a person. Something resonating is a conductor of a frequency, the frequency of heaven, the mystery of Christ. See the difference between reproducing and resonating is the source of the sound. Either we are the source and only reproduce with barrenness or we resonate and bring forth fruitfulness.
Now what I am doing is putting these things into reality. How you may ask? In a very simple way, by having all my people build relationship with the person of Holy Spirit. You see we have built relationship with anointings, gifts of the Spirit, revelations and functions and have left Holy Spirit, the person out. Holy Spirit knows all things. Leads us into everything, guides us, etc. These functions are really extensions of His personality. Holy Spirit knows how to bring forth what is needed in this hour and how to form it within us. Holy Spirit sees the hidden brokenness and barrenness and has a way to remove it. He, as the Spirit of Truth will reveal the mysteries in us until we resonate with the frequency of it. He will lead us into mission, and He will be the movement we all are contending for.
How will awakening come? When brokenness is healed and barrenness removed. When we take time and I mean real time, to fellowship with the many mysteries of Christ until we resonate with those mysteries, and then everywhere we go people will be feeling the Presence we are carrying. So, build relationship with Holy Spirit!
