Today is a new day. We have been experiencing such a rich history of Prophetic restoration in the last decades. Of course there have been trips and falls along the way. Just like one recovering from an accident, it has not necessarily been pretty during the restoration, however, we are well on our way to a new face of a prophetic company in the Body of Christ. Unfortunately there have been many wounded from the experience who rightly console with an intimate heart connection to our Father. Yet, they have felt safer on the edges and some have moved completely out of the warmth of the Body, because at times it just simply has not been very warm. But I see a new time.
In the crushing and the pressing, God has been establishing “new wine” models of healthy family dynamics hosting a restored prophetic gift. There are those who have been given grace to stay through the struggle and sort out what that means. Fertile ground for growth and healing are the result, creating an atmosphere for this gift to flourish!
I am sensing that there is about to be a growth explosion of prophetic voices hosted in healthy, unified families of believers, surrounding them in support, to identify, call out, encourage, grow and release into culture a breath of fresh Holy Spirit air through them. The Lord has been preparing a long time for this! We have new generationS, more than one, who are fast learning what the voice of God sounds like, dreaming dreams, seeing visions, and having supportive healthy environments in which to learn accountability, healthy life-giving authority structures, character growth, and gift skill growth. I sense the momentum growing!
I would like to offer this as an invitation to those who still feel cold out there on the edges. Test the water, re-engage, find a healthy home, and consider fathering and mothering these new generations of prophetic voices arising. What an exciting time to hear how God will speak through their perspectives and expectations! And to those who are connected and activated, look behind you and see who is watching you. Grab a hand and take someone along.
"And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions…” Joel 2:28
I am also sensing God bringing generations together on a new level. There is a strong interest in older generations doing something to engage younger generations in this idea swirling culture. And he will go on before the Lord in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous--to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Luke 1:17
How exciting to watch how God will work through unified generations of His kids flowing with prophetic revelation!
