following prophetic word was given in 2001. Unfortunately, I do not know
who to credit. I am posting it because it has been a help to me over the
years, and I hope it will give you the same encouragement toward intimacy with
Fear not children, for I have left you out of
the party; I have not cut you out of the inheritance; for indeed, I have
saved the best wine until last. I will release you into prophetic
ministry, evangelism, soul winning, prophesying, healing and pastoring.
You will not be left out; you will not be cut
out. For I have saved you for the final move - for the last great
evangelistic thrust in this world. Fear not the deep things you've
gone through now - the pain, the suffering, the heartaches are going to be
turned into pure gold and pure joy in the coming days.
I'm going to exalt you. I'm going to
lift you. I'm going to show you a way out of this Egypt. You are
those who are gentle of spirit, who are compassionate by nature, who are
giving, who are loving, who are sharing. You would open your doors to
the homeless; you would give away all that you had if I spoke to you.
I do not have to come after you with a rod to get you to share or be
Do not go into massive warfare. Do not
go into pulling down and tearing up and sending up. But simply
concentrate on walking with me now. I want you to spend hour, after
hour, after hour with the Gardener fellowshipping in the rose garden with He
who can walk on the water and change the world!
I want you to draw near to Christ. That
is your job. That is your goal. I want you to love Him like
you've never loved before. I want you to lift Him up in praise.
I want you to give yourself to Him. I want you to concentrate on Him.
I want Him to be the reason you get up in the morning and go to bed at
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus! I want you to
think about Him; I want you to live for Him; I want you to magnify Him; I
want you to be so wrapped up in Jesus you don't think about church.
And the ministry that flows from the union that you have with Him will lift
you higher and higher and higher.
Do not take your eyes off Jesus to turn to
the right or the left to deal with problems in the Church; to deal with
ministries. I am not calling you to promote the prophetic ministry in
the earth. It will be a byproduct of your union with Christ. It
will come automatically.
I'm calling you higher than that; I'm calling
you to where Mother Theresa lived. I'm calling you to where compassion
is so birthed in your soul that you weep tears of blood for lost saints.
I'm calling you to move into a realm of love with me. Walk with Me.
Talk with Me. And that love will flow and so ooze out of you the last
thing you'll even think about is the prophetic. There'll be so much
love coming from your system: love for your enemy, love for your friends,
love for one another.
I will handle your finances. I will
handle your ministry. You do not have to push through and make things
happen. Come unto Me. Come closer than you've ever in your life
come before to Me and to My Love. Think about my Love.
If you will simply concentrate on me day and
night, forget the prophetic, forget the church, forget the ministries, but
remember the Lord, that He would be your waking thought, that he would be
the reason you go through the day, that he would forever be before your
You will find yourself being lifted higher
and higher out of depression, out of problems, out of worry. The Lord
would lift you; the Lord will take care of you. Let the Lord be your
strength. I know that this may sound simplistic to you, but it will
work. It is so simple it will work. It is the qality of ministry
that will come out of you in your personal relationship with God that will
catapult you into new realms.
Massive amounts of ministry is not what I'm
looking for. There are so many that will run to and fro and scrub the
floors and serve even like a dog. But I am looking for those rare
qualities, for those rare vintages and so is the Body of Christ. They
are looking for that elixir, that wine of God that comes from those servants
that have closed themselves in with the Lord in communion and not in heavy
intercession, but in communion with Him.
For out of the love relationship will come a
fruit of the Spirit that oozes out of your spirit that will attract people
to you. They will be coming to you to ask you, "How may I be
saved?" "How may I have what you have in your Spirit?"
For it is the attractiveness of your spirit that they will want. The
joy of the Lord, the gentleness of God, the love of God will be your calling
Stop struggling with the ministry and
begin loving your Lord.
