A growing number of believers feel they are a volcano about to erupt. They feel total disgust for fleshly religion. They despise the impotent actions of Christianity incorporated. A yawning conviction is intensifying in them.
They put their hands over their ears to drown out the noise of modern preaching. They know there has got to be something deeper—something real. They are sick of the church in exile always apologizing—most of all—they feel an indescribable pull to a secret place in God.
If that’s you… let me congratulate you. Let me explain your condition. You are under the influence of a bulldozer called prophecy.
Your condition runs against the grain of the horrendous days we are living in. My letters and emails tell me horror stories of fear and retreat. Dreams are being postponed or cancelled outright. Expansion is now guilty until proven innocent. Young people are acting like they are old and afraid. Once bold leadership lions are retreating and looking for safe landings.
But a remnant feels just the opposite. They sense that—as hard and as dark as these times are—God is up to something big—something that He has had in mind for a long time. They believe they are in preparation for an inexpressible event. I am not talking about the many prophecies that so many are claiming to have. This is totally different.
You probably agree that much of what is labeled “prophetic words” today are actually pathetic counterfeits. You reject the shenanigans of false prophets. You see through the mind-games they use to prey on the gullible. However, you have not given up. You know there is true prophecy because it has a grip on you that won’t let go. Here is what you need to know about prophecy.
Prophecy swallows policy. Every generation is guided by two forces: Policy and Prophecy. Policy is the law and edicts of man. Prophecy always swallows policy. Christmas is a vivid example. No doubt Caesar Augustus felt sovereign over the earth when he ordered the world to be registered. His policy seemed to force Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem. But policy was simply serving prophecy…namely: “ “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting”- Micah 5:2.
True prophecy is a bulldozer that overrules the plans of Satan and man. Prophecy is the WORD that will prevail when all the dust settles and the smoke clears. The mad ravings of society will bow down before the purposes of God.
The bulldozer of prophecy is not moved by the mad railings of potentates and tyrants. It is impervious to weather, economic downturns and persecution. The treads of prophecy roll over the plans of men—the intentions of armies—and the highest threats of mankind. Prophecy is the fire that cannot be snuffed out. Isaiah 40: 8 declares “The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever.”
Forget about everything else. Here are the questions that matter: What has God said He would do in our time? What has He promised? What has He commanded? Your passion to learn His intention for your time is of supreme importance.
Prophecy waits in secret—for a core that will pay the price to know the secret of the Lord. “Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets-Amos 3:7. “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him; And He will show them His covenant. Psalm 25:14
The prophetic bulldozer creates an inner tenacity where, suddenly, the facts of daily life don’t count. Quietness pervades your soul because you know beyond knowing that something unstoppable is growing out of your closeness to Christ.
Those that are the secret weapons may not know it yet. They have no idea of the tactical wisdom and the miracle power that will unfold at the very moment that they need it. All they know is that they are being pulled into the holiest place.
You can feel it… a deep calling unto deep. You have been ruined for the mediocre and you deeply want to know Him…be with Him…and stay separated for an as yet unseen plan.
Prophecy unleashes its power in an unseen hour—when the enemy is least prepared.
God is going to do something that no one can possibly fathom. Some will be in the middle of it, others will miss it entirely. None of the current events foretell the might that will be expressed by the Holy Spirit.
Take heart! God has honored you by letting you live in troubled times. The greatest vessels of God have appeared in times of calamity and confusion. Today’s trouble is your opportunity to be your best, to be more than you ever imagined you could be. All of this because of a bulldozer called prophecy.
