The other night, I was getting ready to settle in for the night, I was not even praying, or I should say I wasn’t actively talking to God but I try to keep an active ear for listening to hear what God would say at all times …… then I heard the Lord say RESERVE. I have reserved the best for last. Then immediately followed the verse …..
John 2:10 And he said to him, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!”
The Lord reminded me of a vision, He had given me about a year ago. He gave me a vision of a banquet where the attendants were joyous, they were celebrating, and they were clinging their wine glasses together cheering in celebration. It was like a reception of a wedding. Then I heard marriage supper.
Then the Lord was speaking to me about how the prophetic has been in a season of being amped up. I know for myself, I have seen the prophetic in my life increase exponentially. You are where your attention takes you.
Then the Lord was showing me how John was the forerunner in the wilderness, preparing to be the voice of one crying from the wilderness to proclaim, “prepare the way for the Lord”, the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the One to come, the Savior. And how Jesus could do no mighty works before John proclaimed (announced) Him. Many prophets have been in a wilderness season in preparation for proclaiming, Prepare the Way of the Lord!
Do you see it, the prophetic came before Jesus made an appearance (the Word made flesh) and the signs and wonders following. What was the point of the prophetic coming before Jesus’ appearance and the signs and wonders following? It is written in Amos 3:7-8 Surely the Lord God does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken! Who can but prophesy?
The prophetic word is released to prepare hearts to receive.
We are in a time and season of preparation of our hearts to see and hear the Lord by visitation personally and manifestation of the signs, wonders, and miraculous in our personal lives and corporately, to be awestruck by God’s goodness and love for us.
We are in a time and season to prepare our hearts to see things that are greater in comparison then the signs, wonders, and miracles of times past (even the Red Sea parting or any of the others we read in the Word).
The Lord is saying, get out all the prophetic words and promises I have spoken to you concerning your life. Take off your grave clothes and put on clothes fit for rejoicing. Yes, I have seen your tears. No longer will you weep bitter tears but tears of REJOICING. I am the faithful Bridegroom, Who keeps My Word and My Promises. I have saved the BEST FOR LAST.
John 14:12-14 I assure you and most solemnly say to you, anyone who believes in Me as Savior will also do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these in extent and outreach, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in My name as My representative, this I will do, so that the Father may be glorified and celebrated in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name as My representative, I will do it.
Haggai 2:9 ‘The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘and in this place I shall give the ultimate peace and prosperity,’ declares the Lord of hosts.”
2 Corinthians 3:11 AMP For if that Law which fades away came with glory, how much more must that gospel which remains and is permanent abide in glory and splendor!
