When I sat with the Lord in early July and sought him for a mid-year word for his bride, the word PURITY was at the center of our Father’s heart. The dictionary describes purity as:
Freedom from Adulation and Contamination
Adulation is hero worship
Contamination is the pollution or poisoning of something otherwise pure
Purity is also linked with words such as FRESHNESS, virtue, CLARITY, morality, and goodness.
And so when I sat with the Father on this subject of purity, it was the impure prophetic that he showed me he was dealing with in this hour as he also raises up purity in this ministry. The Lord said:
"Reformation and a re-establishment of the pure prophetic will begin to emerge and prophecy that looks more like self-promotion, or prophecy that looks more like a fortune cookie will be exposed".
He went on to say:
"I am bringing freedom from adulation and contamination to my Church".
This God showed me is because, as the glory of God comes in a greater measure upon his bride, which will enable us to move in even greater miracles than ever before (John 14:12); a greater measure of counterfeit spirits will also be rife (Matthew 24:24) (2 Thessalonians 2:9) (Galatians 1:6-7) (1 Timothy 4:1).
And so the Lord showed me that reformation and re-establishment of purity in the prophetic will be essential to ensure that we are not deceived (nor deceiving others) in these last days as God shared with me in a dream late last year:
“Look for the counterfeit spirit of my glory. If it points to self-glory, you will know it is counterfeit to my glory”.
Jesus said in Luke 10:2 that the harvest is huge. This means it will be important, especially for new believers who come into the harvest, that the body of Christ is prophesying, teaching, and worshipping with purity - that is freedom from adulation (self-promotion) and freedom from contamination (false truths).
Insights for the Prophetic in this Season
See and Perceive
As we are in an Isaiah 43:19 season, the Lord is giving his prophets greater clarity right now to SEE and PERCEIVE the new thing that the Lord is doing.
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. SEE, I am doing a [fresh] new thing! Now it springs up; do you not PERCEIVE it" (Isaiah 43:19)?
The Lord said:
“I am removing the crust from your eyes so my people can see the new vision I am doing. I am sharing this vision with my prophets to help my bride navigate the new move I am doing in this era”.
Heavenly Vantage Point
Spiritually speaking, the Lord is pulling the prophets up by their hair to SEE things like the Prophet Ezekiel did. In Ezekiel 8 God uses the word SEE over a dozen times in some form or another. In Ezekiel’s case, God wanted him to SEE many idolatrous (adulated and contaminated) things that made the Lord jealous and which were an abomination in his temple (Ezekiel 8). In other words, God was revealing the impurities in his Church to his prophet Ezekiel.
Right now, the Lord is wanting to show his prophets something similar.
He wants that we can see and perceive things from his heavenly perspective so that we can demolish strongholds and idols, and be one step ahead of the enemy’s plan (2 Corinthians 10:4).
Recently God pointed me to the expression "eagle eye" which means to keep a careful or close watch on something. In this hour, God is lifting his prophets and intercessors (and those operating out of the prophetic gift) up higher as his watchmen, and he is giving these prophetic ones an eagle-eye vantage point (that is a heavenly perspective)so we can keep a careful watch on what is happening in the spirit realm.
The Lord said:
“The great fog is lifting. Eyes that were blinded to lies will begin to see the truth. Light is penetrating darkness enabling what once was hidden to now be exposed. Fogginess is being replaced with clarity. What once was grey will become clear and it will be seen for what it is” (Ephesians 5:13).
He then went on to say:
“Enough is enough. I am coming to set the wrong right. I am coming to expose the great serpent liar. I am coming to support my bride to fight the battle even to the end. The roots have been exposed. They no longer hold up the fortress. It is crumbling fast - watch as the King of Glory arrives mightily on the scene”. (Malachi 4:1-3
The Lord also spoke to me in early July about the wilderness prophets. Particularly the ones who have fallen mightily in the eyes of man. The Lord said:
“Prophets who are currently in the wilderness, who feel abandoned and forgotten, and those fallen who have repented and are now positioned in purity and humility, you will emerge with a new sound in your voice. And it will be louder than before”.
Pure of Heart
The Lord has also been talking to me about the pure of heart who will have eyes to SEE more and more of God (Matthew 5:8). The dictionary definition of the word SEE is to perceive with one's own eyes or to discern visually. God will manifest himself more in this era to the pure of heart - the ones who Psalm 24:3-6 tells us are “clean—whose works and ways are pure, the ones whose hearts are true and sealed by the truth, and those who never deceives, and whose words are sure. These ones will ascend the mountain of Yahweh and have the privilege of entering into God’s Holy Place and they will stand before God”.
DREAM: "This snake can only be defeated by One"
I posted a dream I had on 6 July 2021 about “this snake can only be defeated by one”. This dream represents the global problems we face right now which are huge and which cannot be fought through natural means because the highest spiritual principalities are attached to them and therefore they can only be defeated by One (Jesus). This dream gives us a vantage point to SEE things from a heavenly perspective, and it directs us to intercede and pray. To read click here.
FINAL WORD: "I have your back"
“Comfort, comfort my people, says the Lord, “with gentle, compassionate words and say”:
You are not forgotten, you are not alone, you do not fight this battle on your own. I am your Groom, I am your fearless Leader, your Conqueror, and your Victor. Without warning, I move the mountains, and I overturn them in my anger. Because I am your Rock, your Fortress, your Strong Tower and Deliverer, I will avenge and subdue nations for you (Psalms 18). I will reduce Rulers to nothing and make the elite of the earth as nothing at all. Be brave my bride - I have your back”.
“Ascend into the high place for you are my warrior bride, who I am calling to release breakthrough, and bring down the strongholds of the almighty. Remember who you are beloved - My co-heir to the kingdom of heaven - I have given you my very set of kingdom keys to bind and loose accordingly. Be strong and courageous My bride - I have your back”.
“Unite as one body of believers beloved. There is strength in numbers. So lift up your battle cries together. Raise your Victor’s banner. Shout aloud your hallelujah praises. And dance the victory dance. Be united as one My bride - I have your back”.
“Yes climb a high mountain, my beloved. You're the preacher of good news. So raise your voice. Make it good and loud. You’re the preacher of good news so speak loud and clear. Don’t be timid! Tell the cities - Look! Your God! Look at Him! God, the Master, comes in power, ready to go into action. Be bold my bride - I have your back”. (Job 9:5, Psalms 18, Isaiah 40, Proverbs 21:22, Matthew 16:19).
