Appropriate Prophetic words spoken over OTHERS

Christians have for centuries read and responded to books of Prophesy, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Zephaniah, Revelation. We do it with confidence that those books carry the power of God in Prophesy to activate our lives. It's true. I do it all the time. We are apprehending, appropriating words written thousands of years ago to another people for ourselves.

"I know the plans I have for you....
"I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean;
"Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow.

We read and hear these and many many other powerful words of Prophesy spoken and reach back in time to grasp them to ourselves. We even use them as Mission Statements "not by power nor by might, but by MY SPIRIT saith the LORD of HOSTS".

Yet, when we are in a prophetic gathering and people are being prophesied to we sit wishing we could get a word, that we could hear from GOD for ourselves thru his prophets.

IF we properly discerned and apprehended these for ourselves as they are spoken out they can have the same power as those precious words we read in the word. Not added to, but reinforced.

Last night at Crusaders Church on 79th and Ashland there was a powerful meeting. Many people were prophesied to. Apostle Eckhardt even spoke a needed word over me. I won't share it here. This is not about me.

During the night as things proceeded, I was asking God to give me clarity on a battle I am facing in my life. I listened carefully to the Rhema words spoken over others and listened for what I would appropriate.

Here are several things that the Lord had me write down. Remember, this is NOT the specific things spoken over my life, these were things spoken over others that I heard and recorded for myself as the Spirit gave me instructions to do:

  • This is a Fork in the Road (it is for me)
  • Have peace in the storm for I am Jehovah Shalom
  • I am taking away the shame
  • The season of Harvest is coming. Release the Harvest that makes rich
  • I am making you whole from the issues of your Past
  • Break Thru in your destiny
  • Victory is yours, do NOT be afraid, rebuke, resist and he will flee
  • Shalom Shalom --- perfect peace
  • This opposition is of the enemy, be my battle axe
  • I am rebuilding the broken down walls in your life (I have many)
NONE of these words were spoken directly over me, but by the Holy Spirit I knew that they were for me. Just as those written down by the Prophets of Old spoken to others.


At the end of the service I brought a brief word which I share here:
Many have heard words of destiny in their lives. They hear them, they want to believe them but they struggle because it's not yet seen.
The picture of your purpose and destiny is like if you are in a small boat. You cast out with a rod and reel into the distance. That cast is the prophetic word that speaks of your future history.
The hook on your line grasps firmly onto your destiny. It cannot be dislodged. You begin to reel yourself toward that place somewhere out there. Sometimes there fog and you keep reeling even if you can't see it clearly. Sometimes storms come and try to break the line between you and your destiny, the might push you off course for a little while, but if you stay steady, you will begin reeling yourself toward that distant hidden destiny. Sometimes darkness comes, it seems hopeless. You have reeled a long time. Some even say, cut the cord, it's not worth fighting like this. Winds come, blow you off course, waves threaten to swamp your boat. You are frightened by the turmoil but you have in your hands the connection to your destiny. Reel. Reel. Sometimes you might even come upon a rock, a seemingly unmovable obstacle. You might have to let a little line out to take you around that impediment, but you never lose sight of the fact that your future history is out there and your are connected to it by the prophetic word of God. You will arrive at the destiny as you keep turning the reel, eye set forward, and if you faint not, in due time you will REAP all that Father purposed you for.

Don't give up, keep on, your due season is coming.
