This is the prophetic word for October 2018. For those of you wondering what happened to the prophetic word for 5779, it was written 2 months ago but for some reason the Lord has not given the go ahead to release it, therefore; has not been published.
Instead, this word for October 2018 came forth and God wanted me to put this out immediately. No hold on this one and it concerns all of us. You just need to discern where you are in this word and apply the instructions accordingly.
For the rest of this year and into the spring of next year, we are about to witness God pour out spectacular blessings on the body of Christ. It is the fullness of time. Therefore, nothing is going to hold this back. It’s due season! The time is here.
With this in mind, here are the scriptures for the month.
(Isaiah 60:22) “The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the Lord; in its time I will do this swiftly.”
(Leviticus 26:3-5) “If you follow my decrees and are careful to obey my commands, I will send you the seasonal rains. The land will then yield its crops, and the trees of the field will produce their fruit. Your threshing season will overlap with the grape harvest, and your grape harvest will overlap with the season of planting grain. You will eat your fill and live securely in your own land.”
(Galatians 6:9) “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.”
October is the month when the “former rains” start in Israel. That would be end of October, beginning of November. So we are entering into that
season very shortly. I am giving you this word now so that you are prepared when you see it happening and you can get your heart ready to respond appropriately. The really heavy rains are in December and January. The “latter rains” are March and April. When it says in Leviticus that God will give the rain in due season this is what He is talking about.
Not only that, He says that one season of harvesting will begin to overlap with the other. This is known as the perpetual blessing. Your harvest/crops may shift from one to the other (grapes to wheat to barley) but you still have provision as long as you follow what the Lord is telling you to do. In other words, if you see that thing drying up, don’t panic. Just ask God to show you where to find the next line of supply.
So now that we know the rains fall from October to April, this tells us that from May to September…it is dry.
(Deuteronomy 11:14) “then He will send the rains in their proper seasons—the early and late rains—so you can bring in your harvests of grain, new wine, and olive oil.”
Plowing happens in November when the dry ground has softened due to the former rains.
Now that you have all the scriptures let’s talk about the next 3 – 6 months. You are going to see some in the body of Christ getting radically blessed. Abundantly blessed. Because we are in the season for fruitfulness (5779) things have reached their peak.
The Lord wants this word released right now because what you need to do is prepare your heart for what is about to happen.
The rest of the message is based on a dream. This dream is the body of Christ and you need to identify yourself.
I’m walking down a road, the road is smooth. Well paved and there are 2 people walking ahead of me on the same road. One person (we’ll call him, person 1) is slightly ahead of the other person (person 2) but they know each other. I get the feeling in this dream that they don’t personally know me but we are all on the same path going in the same direction.
As we are walking, I look down and I see money. It looks like a dollar bill that’s folded up. I bent down and I picked it up and put it in my pocket. The 2 people in front of me stepped over it but they saw that I picked it up because when I did they turned looked at me. Person 1 said “hmmm” but then kept walking. A few more steps down the road I see more folded up money on the road. They saw it too but again they stepped over. When I bent to pick up the crumpled money I see that this time it’s more than $1, there’s a $5 bill there too and possibly more. Again, they saw me pick it up and put it in my pocket. You can tell when there are a lot of bills and when there are not that much and they were not picking it up because it seemed inconsequential to them.
Then we continue walking down the road. Now, we see another pile of crumpled money on the road. This time based on the size of it we could see that it was more money than the previous two times. Now this time they didn’t see it before I did. When they saw it was when I bent to pick it up. I just happened to be in closer proximity to to it because they were walking on one side of the road and I was on the other. As I started uncrumpling the money now I see there is a $20 bill there as well as other bills. Now the person 2 says “why are you always finding money?” then the person 1 says “yes, why is that?” So I said to both of them “You saw the money too but you didn’t want it so I’m picking it up”. At this point I discern their emotions and the spirit of jealousy starts brewing in the two of them. In person 1 more than the other. Person 2 is actually encouraging the person 1 with the spirit of jealousy. They are whispering/gossiping with each other about me. But I ignore them and keep walking down the road
As we continue to walk down the road, the road is no longer smooth. I notice that there are now potholes, gravel on the road and pieces of the road missing. This has slowed the progress of the two people walking in front of me so that we are now all walking together instead of them walking ahead of me. I discern that the jealousy has turned into murder in the heart of person 1. They are now plotting against me. They can’t get over the fact that I have all this money in my pocket and they have nothing. The truth is they don’t know how much money I have and I don’t know how much I have because the money is still all crumpled up and I didn’t count it, it’s just in my pocket. They are now conspiring how to get the money from me because they realized that the road is now rocky, not smooth and this money would be able to help them. Now, the spirit of jealousy has turned into a spirit of murder. So, person 1 falls back a little bit so that he could get behind me and attack me from behind to get the money. He is ready to kill me. He has a knife. They didn’t know that I already discerned the plot. They were whispering but God had already shown me how they plan to do it.
I also need to point out that when I saw the road was getting rocky, and they were falling behind, I was thinking about how can I help them get around these potholes, what I could do make the road smoother for them. I started thinking about the money in my pocket and how I can use it to help all of us stay on the smooth path. While I am thinking this, I am also discerning they want to kill me. One is the encourager of the act and the other is going to actually carry out the act.
As person 1 gets up right behind me and has the knife ready to kill me, I whipped around and face him. Looking him dead in the eyes and I say this to him “You better stop this right now. You know that what you are about to do is wrong. If you don’t stop I am going to call Abba Father and tell Him what you are doing and He is going to deal with you personally. He will remove every blessing that you have coming to you and you will be cursed because of this. Now back up!” I said it loudly and with force so that person 2 heard what I said as well because I knew they were a part of this plot. With that, person 1 was in shock. He was in shock because He didn’t know that I knew what he was about to do. He thought he was catching me off guard, when he wasn’t. He was also in shock because He realized that Abba was about to be called and it would be over for him. He backed up so fast in fear, put the knife down. Then I woke up.
Let’s interpret this…
The dream is about the body of Christ. We are walking on a smooth road in the body of Christ. I know some of you may think this is not so based on your life circumstances now but that is all about the change shortly, for a season. God has placed nuggets along the way to help all of us. He’s no respecter of persons so what He is doing for one, He is doing for the other. It is up to us to glean all the lessons we can from this season, collect and discern the right time to use them. Some of what He has given will look like nothing, $1 bill can’t pay a $75 electric bill, but if you will just be faithful with the little that you have as you go along He is going to multiply it. Don’t step over the little because you have no idea what it will turn into down the road. You’re going to need it. We will go into a season where things will be rocky (the dry season), that’s when you’ll need to use what you are gleaning now. God already has people in place to help you during that season. What you don’t want to do, is murder the person that is there to help you because you failed to recognize that God put them there to help YOU. When I say murder let me be clear, I am referring to the words of your mouth. It is what you are saying about them that is the murder. Be careful who you are hanging out with. There are people who will stir up evil, division, dissension and strife. Avoid them. At the end of the day all of these people are Christians. Person 1 recognized that once Abba was called he would be in big trouble. It really was never a fight of 2 against 1 and he recognized that. If he didn’t, he still would have continued with the crime but he didn’t, thank God for that. We are all on the same road and what we have to do is remain focused look ahead and not looking behind watching others. If you are watching others you won’t notice when the season has changed and you will lose momentum and those who are behind paying attention to what is in front of them will catch up to you. Focus on the Lord. The only reward for jealousy is a forfeiture of your own blessing.
I believe at some point in our walk with the Lord, we’ve been in the shoes of one of these three people, or at least two of the three
I want to talk to each person represented here…
The main person
You are the one that is picking up the little, you are actually gleaning but realizing that even though you are getting the left overs one day you will be able to use it for something. You don’t take the nuggets for granted because you know what it is like not to have anything therefore you treasure the little things. Maybe you are just starting out in your ministry or you’ve been doing it for years in humility (you’re unknown). Continue to be faithful. You are in the season of the harvest so all of your hard work, faithfulness and diligence is about to pay off. People may have been watching you and thinking what you are doing is insignificant “Not so!” says the Lord. Your faithfulness is about to be on display. One of the main reasons God is going to use you mightily is your humility and your giving heart, your understanding that what is within you is for the body of Christ, to help others not just yourself. When you saw that the road was getting rocky and others were falling behind your first thought was “how can I help them”. You didn’t think of yourself first. You were ready to share what you had. It is this purity in your heart that is making the Lord very pleased with you. You have a Joseph anointing upon your life. As a result you are going to have many people that are jealous of you, within your own family and the church. Don’t pay attention to them. Discern it… but keep moving forward. Remain focused. It is because of the anointing that is upon your life why they are watching you. But, jealousy has never stopped anyone from reaching their full potential instead it is used to propel them into their destiny at a faster rate. Just as Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery and thought that was the end of him, when instead all they did was provide the vehicle for him to get to Egypt!! Just as the Romans thought Jesus going to the cross would be the end of Him, instead what they did was propel Him into His destiny of being the Savior of the world!!! The jealousy and hate that will come against you will be used as a vehicle of acceleration for you in this season to propel you into your destiny. If you see that it is becoming an issue you only need to do one thing, call Abba Father. God is not going to allow them to kill you. Because you are being raised up for this season. You just need to know how to bring people before the Lord and leave them there. You don’t fight your own battles, you don’t get into a war of words with people, you do not try to defend yourself by posting it on Facebook or making videos defending your position or exposing other people. Nope. That will be the man to man fight and you don’t have time for that. What you do is you bring them before God in prayer and it’s this simple prayer based on
Who may ascend the mountain of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god.
They will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God their Savior.
Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob.
You pray it like this “Abba Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus wash and purify me by the blood of Jesus. Any area of my life where I have sinned against you or made an idol please reveal it to me so that I may repent. (repent for what He reveals to you) As I ascend to Your hill Lord I ask you to vindicate me. I put before you (the names of the people that are jealous and plotting against you) and anyone else that I may not know of that is a part of this plot and I ask you to bring vindication for the things that they have been speaking against me. I leave them at your altar and wait for you to handle them, in Jesus name.
Now when you repent God may reveal to you areas where you are wrong and just by addressing these things this may turn their hearts towards you and send the spirit of jealousy fleeing. If there is nothing then God will deal with them personally.
Once you hand them over to God you don’t pick this up again. You don’t talk about them to other people. You leave it alone. It is in the Lord’s hands. His word says that HE will vindicate you, and not you trying to vindicate yourself. This is not your job. When God vindicates you, it’s final. If you choose to pick it up again, then you are interfering in God’s work. Your only position in this is to keep your hands clean and your heart pure. This is how you access the Holy hill of the Lord and they cannot get there because a evil heart has no place there. That’s it. Watch Him deal with them.
Person 1 – the person with the spirit of jealousy and murder
You are about to see people around you get blessed with things that you’ve prayed for a very long time. It may hurt because you’ve been serving God for a long time and you feel it is your time now. You must have been doing something right because you wouldn’t be ahead of everyone on the road if you were not. You’re missing valuable opportunities because you think you deserve better than the little that you are seeing before you now. You scoff at it. When the truth is what God is doing is using it to reveal you to yourself. Your main problem is that you lost focus. Instead of watching what is ahead of you you got distracted and started looking at what others are doing. Why would God give it to them and not you? It is simple. Your heart. Your heart is not right and if God were to give you what you desire now you would hurt yourself and damage other people.
Matthew 15:18-19(NIV) “But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.”
Jeremiah 17:9-10 (NIV) “The heart is deceitful above all thingsand beyond cure. Who can understand it? “I the Lord search the heartand examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct,according to what their deeds deserve.”
It’s like King Saul (who is ahead on the road) being jealous of David, the shepherd boy. Makes no sense. He has the highest office in the land but he’s being bothered by a shepherd boy. This is the nature of jealousy, it is nonsensical. The Lord is putting you in a season of watching others around you get blessed to expose your heart, to you. Not to Him. He already knows what is in your heart. And because He is so gracious He’s not going to expose it to the world either, because you will feel the jealousy brewing within you before anyone else will see it. The only time the world will see the spirit of jealousy within you is when you verbalize it. When you set out to murder others with your speech, then you expose yourself.
God loves you. He wants to reveal it to you so that you can repent and He can begin the work of making it right within you. That’s why He is doing this. Once you pass this test, you’re next!!! You are next in line for the blessing.
Learn how to celebrate what God is doing in others. The other side of jealousy is when we see the person who has what we want fall and we rejoice. This is also jealousy. We should never rejoice when we see one of our Christian brothers or sister fall. This isn’t good. It just means we have some jealousy that needs to be dealt with.
Joseph was raised up for the season of famine and the very persons that tried to kill him, he blessed them. This is his heart. The person you are jealous of, could be the very person God is going to use to bless you. Don’t murder your blessing.
So how do you deal with jealousy?
Keep your eyes on the Lord. Know that your blessing is on the way. There is a due season, so at some point, IT WILL HAPPEN.
Prayer based on
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Just repent and ask God for grace to sustain you so that you can continue down the road. Your blessing is coming. God loves you.
The other point is, who are your friends? Who has your ear? Pay attention to what or who you are listening to.
Person 2 – the encourager of the spirit of jealousy and murder
This person of all three has the potential to be the MVP. Yes, the most valuable player whether you see it or not. Here’s why, this person was the influencer of the leader in the group. This person has the gift of encouragement. They had the ability to sway the leader in the direction of good. Instead they used their gift to stir up strife and division and encouraged the jealous spirit which then led to a murderous spirit.
This person is actually the most dangerous one and will not go unpunished. Read Numbers 12. This is the story of Miriam and Aaron questioning the choice of Moses as God’s authority figure because Moses married a Cushite (a black woman). Yes, even back then there was racism and God clearly shows this is not of Him, but that’s for another teaching.
The bottom line is they were questioning Moses’ authority and in essence plotting and God dealt with them. Keep in mind that Aaron had a higher authority that Miriam. So he was ahead (on the road so to speak) than Miriam was but she was the one that was given leprosy. She gossiped, instigated and encouraged this questioning of Moses.
When you are party to the crime you are just as guilt as the one who committed it. Your response when someone starts exhibiting the spirit of jealousy is to apply peace.
(Matthew 5:9) “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”
(Proverbs 16:28) “A perverse person stirs up conflict, and a gossip separates close friends.”
When you see the fire you don’t add gasoline to it, you cover it, find a way to put it out the fire. Better yet, don’t start the fire and then hide when it starts blazing. Do you know people like this?
(Proverbs 10:12) “Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.”
Speak positivity and encourage the person to hope in the Lord and trust in the Lord. The truth is that Person 2 also suffers from the spirit of jealousy. They are just not brave enough to carry out the murder. Instead they instigate it, push the conversation into that direction and then at the end of the day they pretend they are innocent because they are not holding the knife. Yeah, the instigator.
The problem is when Abba Father enters the picture everyone involved will be dealt with. You are just as guilty and therefore need to pray the same Psalm 51 prayer plus add verse 13 “Then I will teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners will turn back to you.”
When you see the fire, speak words of wisdom to turn the person back to the Lord. Wisdom instead of gasoline. If they decide to continue down the path of evil, they should continue without you.
That’s it. If you haven’t already started to see this happening around you, you are going to see it even more over the next 3 – 6 months. The Lord is watching to see how you respond.
Now at the end of writing this I am realizing that one of the reasons God did not allow me to release that 5779 word just yet is that some of you will forfeit that blessing if you don’t respond correctly to how He is blessing others. Their blessings may come in the former rains and yours in the latter rain BUT if you don’t handle this properly, you will forfeit your blessing.
Check your heart. Pay attention to what is stirring in your heart when you see others get blessed. Cast down the spirit of jealousy.
A way to know when you are heading down the wrong path is when you start to compare yourself to others. When they start to get blessed and your thoughts are …my ministry is bigger than theirs…my prophetic gift is more accurate than theirs…I’ve been through so much and it’s not fair that they have this and I don’t…I have a bigger following that them…my book is better than theirs…I flow in deliverance ministry and they don’t.
Yes, this kind of thinking of comparing yourself to others is bad. This is when you know the spirit of jealousy is getting ready to jump on you. The end goal of jealousy is murder. Pure evil.
Here’s a prayer for all of us…
Abba Father, I thank you for this word. Thank you that you are leaving nuggets for me and I pray that I will be able to gather all that you are leaving along the path for me to be used at a later date. I pray that I will stay focused on what you have called me to do so that I will walk directly into the blessings you have for me this season. Give me a pure heart and clean hands. Teach me how to always ascend to your Holy hill. Tune my ears to your voice and not the voice of the enemy, the spirit of jealousy or the naysayers. Whenever I am in the position to see others be blessed around me give me a heart of gratitude for them. Just as you have blessed then so too you will bless me because you are no respecter of persons and you love all your children just the same. Create a pure heart within me and renew a right spirit within me so that I may always hear your voice and discern your blessings. Surround me with people who are positive encouragers and people who will propel me into my destiny. Those who can see the goodness in others and celebrate the successes of others as well. Pull up the weeds in the garden of my life, people who are there to choke off the life and destiny you have for me. Bless everyone around me and may we walk into your blessings in peace and with love and unity, in Jesus name, Amen.
Be blessed! And, remember bless those that curse you and pray for those who persecute you!
