Prophetic Perspectives

The Lord continues to speak to us prophetically during service about how much He loves us. He is wooing us, inviting us into deeper intimacy with Him. Our Father continues to reinforce that we belong to Him and that He is our provider. We have been made sons and daughters through Christ.

God so loves us that He wants our life to be swallowed up in His life. He wants us so dominated by His nature, His wisdom and insight that Satan can gain no advantage over us. The enemy has been eternally defeated and publically stripped. The victory has been won by Jesus Christ on the cross.

The Lord wants us to keep our ears tuned to hear His voice. He wants to fill our hearts with His love. A tender heart can see what God sees. A tender heart can expand and receive more. A tender heart is filled with compassion and believes that God is able. God is love. In His love hope and life abounds. Our Father is pouring His compassion out upon us! Receive His love and compassion. Be filled with the substance of His love. Be equipped and strengthened. Be refreshed in His love.

The following prophetic release is from the June 10, Sunday service. The entire service can be downloaded from our website: www.harvest-christian.org.

As you read through this prophetic exchange be immersed in God’s love:

The Lord says, “Come into a new place of intimacy. I have opened the door for you to come. Come, come into the deep place of intimacy that I have opened for you. There is a new dimension of My presence that I have opened to you. I am beckoning you to come. Do not hesitate. Come into a deeper place of uniting with Me. And I will impart in to you the very nature of who I am. I am calling you into a new place of union and communion with Me. Come into this place. Come. Come.”

We responded by singing, “We come deeper. We are not holding back. We come higher. We come before You.”

The Lord responds by giving us greater insight into who He is. He says, “Everything about Me is limitless. My grace and love for you is limitless. Do not take for granted what I am offering you. Take advantage of what I am offering to you. I am completely open to you. I am a Father of miraculous provision and love.”

We responded by singing, “We do not take for granted who You are or the work that You are doing in us. We receive.”

The Lord says, “That through this open door I have heard your voice today. And I am speaking to you and telling you that everything that would hold you back has been broken. Move forward in My love and My will for you. You are My children and you are free in Christ.”

Then the Lord says, “Pursue Me like you pursue no other. Pursue Me with the deep desire that I have placed within you. For My love is unconditional. My love is limitless. I called you before the beginning of time. For you are My chosen ones. My glory will be without restraint. My arm is not too short. My grace is there for you so come after Me.”

We responded in song, “We come after You Lord. Freely You give. And we will take. We open ourselves to You and let You in. With the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom.”

The Lord says, “I have opened the door to a new and lasting covenant. I am the mediator of a new covenant. How much more intimate can it be as I cover you with My blood? Step through, I say, step through. I love you. There is nothing about you that I turn away from. You are cleansed. Step through and receive all that I give you. Step through. Enter into greater intimacy, enter into greater knowing and being sure of who I am and who you are in Me, be filled with My strength.”

When the Lord speaks to us, we call that a prophetic word.  Often during our corporate worship the Lord will begin to stir and speak a prophetic word to us as His people.  The heart of God, what He is speaking, is then articulated by those who go to the microphone during worship.  Often the worship leader will respond on behalf of the congregation to what the Lord has  spoken.  It is a marvelous exchange.  Many times you will find that we had an entire conversation with the Lord.  He spoke and we responded.  WOW!  There is a back and forth exchange – it is a real conversation!  In spiritual language we call that the song of the Bride and the Bridegroom.  The Church is the Bride and Jesus is the Bridegroom.

We hear and receive instructions, encouragement, strengthening, enlargement, revelation knowledge and understanding.  Our Father lavishes His love upon us, reinforcing His acceptance of us.  He declares His intentions for our future.  This is the incredible dynamic of flowing in the prophetic in our services.  We follow as Holy Spirit leads.  There is progression in the conversation – it makes sense.

This beautiful conversation between the Lord and us was during our May 6th service.  I have transcribed portions of this prophetic conversation below.  As you read it allow your spiritual ears to be open to hear and go deeper still in intimacy with our Father.  Allow the words being spoken to be absorbed into your heart.  Listen to the full prophetic release on our website: www.harvest-christian.org.

The Lord speaks to us: I am the risen Lord and I am rising up in you, in My full power and strength.  Live in My love.  Move forward as I am rising up in you.  Feel My power.  The Holy Spirit living in you is the power.  As you cry out for more, My Spirit is activated in you.  As you give place to My Spirit you will see Me moving in and through you.  The new wine skin is forming in you.

These are the days and season that I am calling you to a greater accountability.  Live in the conscious reality of the light of My presence, says the Lord.  These are days of divine alignment.  Be in the place that I have set you in: be in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing as you live and move and have your being in Me.  This is the safest place, dwelling under the shadow of the Almighty.  Do not hide, but step out in Me.

Give your all, be desperate for Me.  This is My honor and glory that you are desperate for Me.  And you have cried out for more of Me – this is the time, there is more, continue to be desperate for Me.

We sang this in response: “O, we’re living in the light of love, we’re living in the light of truth, we’re living in the light of You…”

The Lord then says to us: I’m responding to your cries.  For you are crying from the depth of My heart when you call for more.  For I am intending to do much more.  Continue to ask, continue to cry out.  I am your God and I am a God who gives.  I give with overflowing abundance.  I am pouring out lavishly upon your life, and those around you.  I want to fill you to overflowing over and over again.  Cry out, cry out and ask.  Knowing that you do not ask amiss but knowing that you ask because I have told you to ask and that I am eager to respond.  Cry out for more.  I am pouring out My Spirit says the Lord.

We responded to the Lord: You are our one true love and there is no one like You.  You are the One True God and we cry out.  We run after You.  Then we sang a song asking God to show us His glory.  Declaring, Jesus You change everything.  You make everything right.

God responds by saying: My hope is here.  My hope is in you.  For you are the hope and you hold My glory.  So release My hope and My glory.  My hope is in you.  Let hope rise in you.  You are the answer and the key to unlock – I have placed My answer and My keys in you.  Release My glory.  The answer is in My Name.

We responded by declaring we would release His hope and glory, saying “yes” to His Name.

God responds: I have been there for you and I am faithful.  Open up your heart and gain Me.  Enter in.  Enter in.  Don’t wait.  I have given you strength.

Church was saturated with a prophetic atmosphere on the Sunday after Cross Immersion. The power and significance of the cross of Jesus Christ was fresh and strong in peoples’ minds and hearts. Many had encountered Jesus and the power of His resurrection in a real and personal way at Cross Immersion.

On the back of the Cross Immersion book Pastor Pete shared: “Paul was a pattern for every man and woman in Christ – believers who receive the death and resurrection of Christ by the same flooding experience of grace. This grace is like a mighty River destroying the old man and manifesting the new man in the body and causing believers to continuously bear fruit for God.”

The prophetic words are written out here so you can encounter once again God’s heart and instruction to us as His people in this time. The power of the prophetic words spoken brings transformation shifting us out of the old and into the new. The Lord is changing us from the inside out making us new wine skins to hold the new wine. We will be ones that bear much fruit for His name and His glory.

This prophetic release was on Resurrection Sunday (Listen to the full prophetic release and message on our website www.harvest-christian.org).

The Lord says I am stirring the waters. I am bringing you out of the old place and into the new, out of the old man and into the new. I am turning the page of your life so move into newness of life. There are new careers, new residences, new revelation, new anointing's, new opportunities. This is a season of transition. There is favor on you to cross over into the new God has for you.

Resurrection is about making old things new. Begin to encounter Jesus in His resurrection life. Allow newness of life to overtake the old. Allow the new to break you out of old mindsets and patterns of destruction. Allow the new to begin to clothe you in His righteousness. Allow the righteousness of God to swell up on the inside of you, filling you with His new life. Receive newness of life in every cell and molecule in your body, even in the core of your being. Receive new resurrection power. This is a new time. It is a time to receive the new. So step into resurrection life for it is My life that is more abundant. I am giving you new life, resurrection life – resurrection power. Receive My breath from heaven for it will fill you with new resurrection life and energize you. It will transform you. Step into My transformation. Step into My glory. Let My presence come into you now and saturate you. Let My new resurrection life fill you and begin to flow out of you. As you offer your thanksgiving and worship to Me it will begin to release the new into you. The old will be taken out and the new will be yours. Receive the breath of Holy Spirit. Let it go deep, as deep calls unto deep. Receive My fullness. Do not pull back. Lift your hands and receive the surge of His glory. Encounter the living word – let it cut off the flesh and rightly divide. Let the river of living water begin to flow.

The prophetic word carries the life of God. Meditate on these words. Hear Holy Spirit speak to you further about resurrection life and the power of the cross of Jesus Christ in you. Allow the truth of what God is saying to sink into your mind and heart bringing transformation.

The prophetic words spoken at Harvest are meant to speak into each one of our lives. God is revealing something specific, giving us knowledge encouragement and strength through what is being spoken. Revelation knowledge allows us to advance, going beyond where we are and where we have been. Revelation knowledge opens our eyes to see in a new way, giving new perspective. Revelation knowledge illuminates the path God has for us to walk.

 Here are some of the prophetic words spoken to us during our March 4th Sunday service (you can listen to the full prophetic release and message on our website www.harvest-chirstian.org/podcasts).

Prophetic words spoken to us at Harvest on March 4th
  The Lord says to us:
      I am your reward
      I am your deliverer
      This is your time
      I have given you greater freedom
      There is grace to let go of what holds you in bondage
      Be strong and courageous
      My glory abounds in you
      I am your provision for whatever you need
      Step out of bondage into freedom

Read over these words again, slowly, allowing Holy Spirit to bring revelation knowledge in that area to your heart and mind. Allow the word to work in you and bring to you what God is speaking prophetically over us. As you hear Holy Spirit speak in your heart take hold of what He is saying. Believe it. Confess it out loud.

The prophetic always links us to the new. It takes us BEYOND where we currently are. This is a season for us to GO BEYOND. To “GO BEYOND” is to go into a place that you have not been before. To go beyond breaks the limitations of the last season and the NOW. It is outside of your experience and history. It is a place of stretching and expansion. There are new definitions, new vision and new expectations. Strength, courage and boldness are needed. It is breaking into a new identity not yet known or understood or available before. It is going “deeper still”.

The prophetic words spoken to us on a Sunday during service create an environment for us to step into greater transformation. The Lord says in Jeremiah 29, that He has a purpose and destiny for us, it is to prosper us and bring us into the fullness He has for us. Prophetic words are part of His supply that brings us into the fullness of our destiny. Do not let the prophetic words God speaks to us slip by without receiving their benefit. Prophetic words are given for our benefit.

We are positioned in His presence to hear, absorb and release the prophetic word of the Lord. I declare to you, you WILL hear clearly the word of the Lord. You WILL persevere and break into your God-given identity and purpose for this season going beyond where you have been before.

Part of our prophetic word for 2018 from Dr. David is to be “positioned in prophetic precision”. That means that we are to lean in to hear what is being spoken by the Lord and then position ourselves in agreement, making any necessary shifts or adjustments. This is a time to be aware of how we position ourselves. Another way to say that is: consider what you are agreeing with and what you are speaking. The Lord is saying to speak words of life. We speak life to our city and our nation, life to ourselves and our families, life to our communities and workplaces.

During worship at our February 11 service there was a very strong and clear prophetic word that was released. I have transcribed portions of this prophetic word. As you read it allow your spiritual ears to be open to hear and receive what Holy Spirit is speaking.

“I am your Shepheard. Hear My voice. I am calling you higher and deeper, as deep cries out to deep I am calling you. I am your great reward. Stand. Stand in the authority and promises that I have given you. Stand in stature.”

The Lord asks, ‘How deep do you want to go?’ Open the gates of your heart and allow Me to come in. How deep you will go is up to you. Open up your heart and allow Me to come in and let me reveal Myself. I am filling My church with new wine and forming a new wine skin. You have slowed up; there is a hesitation in some of you. Let Me take you where you have never been before. I am your reward and your recompense as you come deeper. Choose to allow Me to be your reward then there will be no hesitancy. Everyday, choose Me and make me your reward.”

This is a specific word to us at Harvest. Holy Spirit is directing us on what to do and how to do it. The Lord is saying to us that He will take us deeper into Himself. He is saying that the door is open and He is calling us deeper - into deeper relationship. Deeper revelation. Deeper understanding of who He is. Deeper connection. Deeper worship. Increased wisdom and discernment of God will come in the deep. In the deep God reveals His mysteries and gives us supernatural understanding of the times and how to stand. In the deep there is increasing dependence upon the Lord as we lay down our lives and receive His. We shift into greater alignment and become positioned in prophetic precision as we come deeper. Do not hesitate or be afraid. He is our reward.

How do you respond to prophetic words? Paul tells Timothy that the prophetic words spoken over us are to be used to fight the good fight of faith. We do that by believing the prophetic word and speaking it out loud as a prophetic declaration. Declaring what is in the invisible realm until it becomes manifest in us.

Prophetic Declaration:

Lord, I step into deeper relationship with You. You are my great reward. I open my heart and say “yes”. I declare I am in the deep with You and I fully respond to Your call. I receive the new wine skin to contain Your new wine. I let go of hesitation and fear. I choose to believe Your word to me. I do not hesitate. I align myself in prophetic precision - to be accurately positioned for the NOW and the future.

Be expecting. Expect to encounter God in new ways. Expect to see signs that confirm what God is speaking to you. Look in the sky as you go about your day for many times God confirms His word with signs in the sky. Stop and thank the Lord when He gives you signs of confirmation. Acknowledge what you see. If possible, take a picture and keep it as an encouragement. This is how we advance in a practical way from the prophetic word being spoken to the prophetic word becoming real in our lives.
