I HEARD THE LORD SAY “PROPHETS DO NOT TRADE THE PLACE OF REST UPON MY CHEST FOR RUNNING SHOES”
I recognise this word is lengthy, but I encourage you to read it all through, as I believe it carries a beautiful invitation from the heart of God to “come away” and go to a deeper and higher place.
In January of this year I had a dream where I heard the Lord saying over and over all night long “WHERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL LINGER?” and I woke up feeling the Lord’s heart so strongly that He is looking for those who will sit with Him, who will linger, and listen to His heart without agenda. He is looking for those who will come and draw close to Him, and minister to Him, those that just want to be with Him.
Over the past little while I have felt a very strong stirring in my spirit for the prophets right now. There is a drawing of the Lord to withdraw into the secret place more than ever. There is a call to LINGER with Him more than ever before. I believe that we have moved into a completely new moment in time unlike any other and there is significant acceleration happening right now.
GO LOWER AND DRAW AWAY
The Lord is calling the prophets to draw back and go LOWER than ever before, because He wants to share more of His heart with you for what He is about to do.
“Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets.” (Amos 3:7 – New Living Translation)
There is a divine recalibration, a divine firing, a divine infilling, a divine rerouting, a divine increase and extension that the Lord is wanting to release upon the prophets right now to release to the body of Christ.
I have been seeing the Lord’s heart longing for the prophets to come deeper than they have ever been, and as they ‘drew away’ however that looked, I saw encounters with His heart and His Glory unlike anything they had ever experienced.
I saw the impartation of His heart being released in unprecedented ways. There are secrets of His heart that He wants to release right now that are deeper than He has ever shared, but He is looking for those who will linger. He is looking for those without agenda. He is looking for those who will minister to Him. He is looking for those who care not about how big their ministry is, how big their platform is, or how much favour they have, He is looking for those who want to be His friend.
THE LORD IS PURIFYING THE PROPHETIC
The Lord is purifying the prophetic. There is a greater shaking coming to the prophetic movement where things that are not founded in Him will begin to be brought down. The Lord is turning the tables. Any places where the prophetic movement has being flowing in impurity, the Lord is bringing a firing, He is bringing a cleansing and a purifying, so that His love and His truth is released with power and purity. The Lord is bringing the prophets who are embracing His call into a place of deeper yieldedness, a deeper place of intimacy and a deeper maturing and rootedness in His love and His goodness alone.
Prophets, there is a divine impartation the Lord is wanting to place within you in this season, but you MUST come away. There is at temptation in this season of acceleration to get caught up in releasing things too quickly, or not ‘waiting’ upon the Lord and releasing revelation as soon as it is received, but in the place of lingering with the Lord, in the place of marination in His presence and in the secrets of His heart, there is an increasing WEIGHT of His Glory and power being released through the words released. From the place of “coming away” in a deeper way, I saw rivers of living waters flowing from the prophets with greater purity, intensity and momentum. A deeper place of flowing at the sound of His heart.
NOT ALL WHISPERS OF HIS HEART ARE TO BE SHARED
I saw the Lord bringing the prophets into a deeper place of discernment. A deeper place where there is great clarity on knowing what the Lord wants released and what He doesn’t. I saw in this new beginning, this new season, that the Lord is going to be sharing many secrets of His heart with the prophets of what is to come and much will NOT be shared but will be BIRTHED in prayer. The things that He does breathe on to release, I saw a double upon double portion of a breaker anointing and an anointing to SHIFT major strongholds, major blockages, and major direction of the body of Christ. I felt such an excitement in my spirit, that in this new beginning that is upon us, He is going to be revealing such deep secrets of His heart that is going to bring the prophets into a place of friendship with Him unlike anything they have experienced. Such a place of communing with the Lord, where He shares how He feels and shares His heart. But I also felt a warning, do not be hasty to share what you hear and see. Those who linger, He will entrust with deep secrets of His heart.
A NEW FIRE WILL COME UPON YOUR SIGHT, YOUR DECREE AND YOUR WRITING! AN INCREASE OF SCRIBE ANGELS ARE COMING TO ASSIST YOU
I heard the Lord say:
“A new fire will come upon your sight, your decree and your writing!!! An increase of scribe angels are coming to assist you.”
I saw IN THE PLACE of leaning your head upon His chest, His fire is falling that will increase your vision. I saw 20/20 vision in the spirit. I saw fire coming upon decree, when He does have you speak, MORE will be moved and released THROUGH you, and I saw the prophets who write – the Lord sending an increase of SCRIBE ANGELS to assist you. You will write more and more profoundly in the anointing than ever before, but it has all COME from the place of LEANING your head upon His chest.
I also heard the Lord saying to the prophets to “WRITE DOWN ALL THAT I SHOW YOU”. I saw in the place of stewarding the revelation by keeping an account of what He is saying, that He was bringing greater revelation and understanding and bringing divine pieces of His beautiful puzzle together in greater ways.
LEANING YOUR HEAD UPON HIS CHEST LIKE JOHN WILL SEE THE LORD INVITE YOU TO “COME UP HERE”
In this invitation upon the prophets to “come away” more and more right now, in that leaning your head upon His chest like John the Beloved, instantly I heard Revelation 4:1:
After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.” (New American Standard Bible)
Then suddenly, after I wrote down these messages, I saw a heavenly portal open before me, and the same trumpet-voice I heard speaking with me at the beginning broke the silence and said, “Ascend into this realm! I want to reveal to you what must happen after this.” (The Passion Translation)
I then saw unprecedented throne room encounters opening up for the prophets of His heart. I saw them moving into a realm of revelation, insight and understanding of His heart, His plans and the things to come, unlike anything they had encountered before.
But the Lord showed me specifically that it CAME from the place of leaning upon His chest and keeping an account, the stewardship of writing the revelation He was releasing in the secret place, that SUDDENLY they were invited into a new season and a new realm.
Prophets of His heart, it’s upon you! It’s upon you! It’s upon you!
I heard the Lord say “Don’t trade the place of rest upon My chest for running shoes”.
The Lord’s heart is that we will run further than we ever have, but we will run empowered by His Spirit, supernatural strength released to the prophets to be like Elijah and outrun the chariot. Supernatural strength to do with the Lord what cannot be done in the natural, but in this increase that’s upon us right now, the Lord is calling us deeper and to “come away” into the secret place to RECEIVE His heart for the new era upon us. Let us steward His heart with integrity, purity, humility and awe. The Lord’s heart for this season is not to “run, run, run” and not rest upon His chest.
He is calling His prophets to come deeper into the place of resting upon His chest, and then you will run with the empowerment of His Spirit, to run WITH HIM, further than you ever have.
