The Lord spoke to me and said: " Tell my people, those whom I have called and chosen for my work, to lift up their voices like trumpets and teach; teach and expound unto others the Truth as I reveal it unto them. Help to equip my body and prepare my bride. I will be revealing the Truth unto my people now more than ever. You think that you've seen an outpour of my Spirit, but I say unto you (and you can grasp this as a 'precious promise' from me to you), that what you've seen is a very small portion of what I am already beginning in the process of doing. The biggest move ever, the greatest downpour and 'signs and wonders' to the magnitude of 'greater works' than Jesus did when He walked this earth! Hold this word dear to your heart as I am speaking it to you especially so that you can possess it and fight with it in the event that anything to the contrary presents itself unto you. (1 Timothy 1:18)
I love you so much and I have seen you go through Romans 5:1-5: "Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit".
My heart has bled as I've seen you go through many trials, tribulations and difficulties; but I've also seen the work that has and is being done in you and I have seen you holding on. I have seen you being encouraged and praising me even in the midst of these things. Keep it up. My rewards, My rewards, My rewards! My rewards are more abundant than you can ever imagine. You just wait. Praise me in the HIGHEST! As a matter of fact, do this: "Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand" (Psalms 149: 6); and you shall see this: "Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit." (Joel 2:23-29)
One of the meanings of the rain that this scripture speaks of in the original Hebrew is 'great teacher'. There will be such a magnificent outpouring of My 'truth' that a profound increase in teaching ability will be manifested. This is in addition to all the other things that I AM and will be doing. Remember that "THE GLORY OF THIS LATTER HOUSE SHALL BE FAR GREATER THAN OF THE FORMER, saith the LORD OF HOSTS!!" (Haggai 2:9).
Prophetess M. Lundy 9/11/98
GOD IS MOVING
Moving across the land, moving across the world: a mighty wave of the anointing of God is moving everywhere. Human beings are talking like God, beginning to walk like God and some are having HIS GLORY shine through them. The whole universe is being alerted that the 'sons of God' are coming forth. The whole of creation is beginning to stop their groaning and look up with hopeful anticipation of deliverance. (Ro.8:19-22) God's sons are anointed to bind up the brokenhearted and set the captives free and the universe is glad. 'The mountains and the hills are breaking forth, the trees of the field are clapping their hands for joy (Isa.55:12), and the 'morning stars' are singing!'(Job 38:7). [Have you noticed the people of the world taking more notice of Yahweh these days?]
The main reason that the Lord is blessing the world and the church with more of this majestic anointing is to prepare them for the Second Coming of Christ. These sons (many are apostles and prophets), of God come with information, instruction and direction as to how to be 'caught up in that 'first resurrection'. (Re.20:6) God is sending forth a clear understanding of this, because 'it is not His will that any should perish.’ (2 Pe.3:9) By hearing, realizing and doing His rhema, our lives and works can be lined up with His logos (Jesus Christ, His Son), before that 'great and terrible day' of the Lord. The foundational truths of the kingdom of God need to be mastered by one before he or she can expect to build on and go farther.
John the Baptist came under the power and anointing of Elijah, and prepared the hearts of the people for the first coming of Christ. Christ is the Seed-God's planting. (Isa.11:1) Ground must be prepared before planting can be done. The Bible speaks of breaking up the fallow ground of the heart so that God can come and rain down righteousness into it. (Hos.10:12) When the ground of the heart is plowed and cultivated, planting and growth can be successful. There is much piled and packed down in the hearts of people (even God's people), that is unlike God and must be dug up and out. Hearts must be rended (torn apart), and all the clots broken up, before the tender plant that is the Lord can flourish there. (Isa.11:1)
In the book of Joel there was a call to repentance, to fasting and prayer, to weeping and howling between the porch and the altar unto everyone from the priests on down. The great 'rains' were to come-all at once. John the Baptist brought this same message to the people as he prepared the way for Christ. He urged them to repent, for the 'Kingdom of God' was at hand. In essence, he cried out for them to change their way of living and get their hearts ready because 'righteousness' was coming forth and was about to be rained down upon them. This was the preparing of the world: letting them know what was going to happen, how it was going to happen, and what they needed to do in order to receive. (M't 3:1-12)
God told us through Malachi in Mal.4:5 that He would send 'Elijah' (the Spirit or Anointing that was upon Elijah the prophet), before 'that great and terrible day of the Lord'. (That great and terrible day speaks of the end times). Jesus told us the same thing again in M't 17:11. Elijah shall come and get everything restored and ready and indeed he had come before in John the Baptist. Acts 3:21 lets us know that the heavens must retain (keep there), Jesus until the restitution of all the things that God has spoken through His servants the prophets. There has been a lot restored that was once lost to the church, but there's much more out of God's treasure that must be revealed. That's another reason for all the prophetic activity. True prophets hear from God, therefore God can get His will, revelations and desires out through them to the rest of the people who may not hear Him for whatever reason.
What a great mission we have! What a great blessing! Remember, all the signs that God manifested through Elijah the prophet? He is manifesting many miraculous and wondrous signs through some of His people today and this will only increase as time goes on, because He uses these signs to confirm His word. As the Father sends more and more of His anointed word forth we shall see God Himself (His Glory), manifested in the earth. (Ezek.43:2).
Since the fall of Adam God has, many times, used some people to speak to other people for Him. There are several reasons for this, even though the ideal of God is to speak to man 'one to one'. In Ex.19 the people were afraid for God to speak directly to them and beseeched Moses to approach the Father on their behalf. Moses is said by many modern scholars to be an apostle. This is said not because titles are so important, but because if you know your calling and know what it involves there's a better chance of you reaching the full potential of that calling. God is no respector of persons, but those who fear God and work righteousness are acceptable to Him. (Ac.10:34; Ro.2:11). If one is in a position to hear from God and will listen and obey, the Lord will deal with them.
The Lord has been using prophets down through the years. In every dispensation we see God using prophets to get His mind out to the people. Many were apostles in the Old Testament, but because they were not named as such, we may not realize that they were. The Bible says that David was a prophet (all the other things that he did: being King and all, makes him look like an apostolic prophet. God didn't say that he was a prophet only). (Ac.2:25-34) Those that we know as patriarchs-Joseph, Jacob, Abraham and Joshua and many others were more than prophets. Jesus spoke of being 'more than a prophet'. They were also leaders who spoke to and set everlasting precedence for the people of God. Apostles are anointed and 'sent ones' who have the ability, mind and power of God to the extent that they can operate in every area of Ministry; they are the very representation of God upon the earth. God is preparing and bringing forth more 'apostolic prophets' and 'prophetic apostles' now. He has a great work to do and He's having to do it very quickly and cut it short in righteousness. (Ro.9:28) He needs mature 'sons of God' who are anointed to stand in these offices-doing the work of the apostle, the prophet, the pastor, the evangelist, and the teacher. This calls for people who are pliable enough (like clay), have enough knowledge of the word, and whom God can trust enough to do this mighty work. We have so many who say they are prophets, but many prophecies are adulterated with the person's own thoughts and/or things they've been taught that may not be rhema at that particular time for that particular situation or person. Some are even influenced by satanic spirits.
God has many that He's been working with for a very long time, and they're wondering why they seem to be in the background. God has been getting the ground of their hearts in the right condition, filling them up with His word, teaching them His precepts and principles and how to be led by His Spirit so that when He says: "go", they can run and have everything they need in order to prevail.
The very appearance of so many apostles and prophets is a clear sign that Jesus Christ is coming back soon. They are 'voices crying in the wilderness..preparing the way for Him.’ If you'll listen to their messages, you'll hear: "repent, get right with God, develop that intimate relationship with God, walk in the Spirit, learn to hear God's voice and obey."
In the festivals of the Jews, 40 days before Rosh haShanah (the festival of trumpets), a period called 'Teshuvah' began. This word means to repent (to make an about face), to draw nigh to the Lord. This was so that the people would be ready when the Trumpets were blown announcing the holiday had begun. According to biblical scholars we are in the Teshuvah period now..a time of drawing nigh to God. Before long we'll be at the time when 1st Thess.4:16 tells us that before Christ's decent, the archangel will blow the trump of God (announcing the coming of Christ), and the dead in Christ shall rise first and those which are alive and remain shall be caught up to meet Him in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Oh, how great! Now it's preparation time. The apostles and prophets are receiving the Lord's heart and giving it to His body (the church), and the church is carrying it to the world. They're proclaiming the 'truth' and urging God's people to implement everything just as God wants it done. This is a very special anointing upon a people that God has called (many times, before they came into this world). [Jer.1:5; Ro.8:29-30].
It manifests as wonderful as God performs through His 'chosen ones' (Ac.4:30; Mk.16:20), but that is not all there is to it. Paul gives us the real picture of the Lord's preparation of His anointed. In 1 Co.4:9-13 he declared that: "For I think that God hath set forth us, the apostles last, as it were appointed to death.." Paul said also that: “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” (Gal.2:20) God will cause His people to walk as Christ and not as their flesh dictates. This may not always feel wonderful, but it yields the ‘peaceable fruit of righteousness.’ Know that God will mold and make you into what He needs you to be.
The word of God also tells us about persecution suffered because of godly living. Heb. 11 tells us about all the experiences of the prophets of old. The New Testament tells of the things that the apostles endured for the sake of the gospel. Not everyone can stand in these offices. As a matter of fact, no one can except by the grace (divine enablement and ability), of God that He gives to those whom He has chosen for this purpose.
Many mistakenly think that because they can prophesy they can function in all areas of ministry. They try to give life-changing instructions and directions, pronounce judgments, warnings and, and do many other things associated with the 'offices'. They have not realized yet that there is a distinct difference between the gift of prophecy, the ministry of prophecy and the prophetic office. They end up injuring many and causing much confusion. It is always God's perfect order for His people to hear from Him directly and what the prophet speaks should be confirmation to what God has already told them. This would put a stop to a lot of error and confusion. Many being used in the gift need to be patient and stay in the 'Word and Holy Ghost school' until God graduates them to the office if they are really called to be in that office. They need to get with some true prophet, a mentor, and stay there until they're ready. Like Joshua stayed with Moses, Elisha with Elijah and Timothy with Paul until the Lord finishes getting them ready.
To be a prophet means to speak as an oracle of God (in God's stead), to be the voice of God'...to speak the true word of God, whenever He wants it spoken, in the way that He wants it to be spoken and along with that do whatever else He says to do in order to accomplish His full will and purpose. This calls for an individual dedicated and consecrated to God; someone who loves God and loves being in His presence. This is essential in order to receive God's messages. One can't expect to receive God's messages properly when they make no time for Him and/or they have no excitement about Him and His lifestyle. If you're wanting to be doing something else all the time: (the movies, sport games, having fun with friends or the like), God may not have your attention enough to give a lot of information. The remedy for this is to pray: "Lord, work in me to will and to do of Your good pleasure.” (Phil.2:13) It's not that the Lord doesn't ever want you to have fun, but you have to get your priorities straight and make a decision as to what you're going to do. Are you going to be a prophet or an apostle or not? If so, you have to make the proper adjustments, but never think for a minute that His commandments are grievous..in God's presence is fullness of joy! (Ps.16:11). If you let the Lord grow you up in the ministry this way, then the words that you speak forth will bring health, deliverance, blessings, happiness, directions, instructions, comfort, edification, illumination, exhortation, warning, and all that God intends. They will be loaded with the power, anointing and the ability of God to do so. If you don't feel that you meet the requirements for the office, stick with being used of God in the 'gift of prophecy' and/or in whatever way that the Lord wants to use you until the Father promotes you unto whatever He has destined you to be. Remember that there are many parts to the body and each part has a very specific function although that function is not the same as that of another part. Each part is of the utmost of importance and the body could not operate properly if it wasn't there. (1 Co.12-please read the whole chapter). I know a lady who operates in the 'ministry of helps' and she's the most beautiful, talented and gifted person that you'd ever want to see. She preaches, teaches, sings, writes, does all kinds of crafts, plays instruments, decorates—you name it, she does it. She says that God has to show her how to do many things so she can help many people. God has to take everyone through much training and many experiences in preparing them for His work, but He will put all in the proper place.. even in the place that you're best fitted for.
Indeed, the 'company of prophets' having the Spirit of Elijah and even more than that 'the Spirit and mind of the Lord Jesus Christ' is coming forth; and as never before, I might add. They are bearing the Truth and performing the 'works' necessary to wake up the world, to help to mature, equip the saints and prepare 'the bride of Christ' for the coming of it's 'groom'. (M't 25:1-13;Eph.5:23-32;Re.21:2,9,10). They are helping her get fitted and dressed up in the most 'splendid attire' and the most precious of 'gemstones'. (Re.21:10-21;Isa.61:10). Yes, they are indeed 'preparing the way' for the Lord's return! (Isa.40:3) Let us be grateful and watching and shout out: "..even so, come Lord Jesus!"
