This is a prophetic word that is needed in this hour when there is mass hysteria and fear. You can come back to this and read it to get yourself back on track with the Lord. Let this serve as an encouragement to you.
What’s written in your scrolls?
Did you know there are scrolls in heaven? Books written about you and everything that will ever happen to you. It says what the plans of God are for your life. These scrolls are not for some people and not for others. They are for everyone.
Ephesians 1:4 (NKJV) “He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,…”
That means before you were even a thought, before your mother met your father God already knew who you were and chose you as His.
There is no “oops! I didn’t see that coming” where God is concerned. You may not see it coming but He already knows.
Psalm 56:8 (NIV) Record my misery; list my tears on your scroll— are they not in your record?
Every single hardship, heartache, tears that you will cry are already written in the scrolls of heaven, did you know that?
Isaiah 34:15-16 New International Version (NIV)
The owl will nest there and lay eggs,
she will hatch them, and care for her young
under the shadow of her wings;
there also the falcons will gather,
each with its mate.
Look in the scroll of the Lord and read:
None of these will be missing,
not one will lack her mate.
For it is his mouth that has given the order,
and his Spirit will gather them together.
In the scrolls of heaven God has already picked out your mate. Why worry about whom you will marry? Find out if they are in
the scrolls. If He can determine which owl belongs with which owl and which falcon belongs with which falcon…how much more has He already determined who you will marry? Stop worrying about things that have already been predetermined. Find out what is written about you in heaven.
Please read Ezekiel 3:1-15
Ezekiel 3:3-2,10-11 New International Version (NIV)
And he said to me, “Son of man, eat what is before you, eat this scroll; then go and speak to the people of Israel.” 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.
10 And he said to me, “Son of man, listen carefully and take to heart all the words I speak to you. 11 Go now to your people in exile and speak to them. Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says,’ whether they listen or fail to listen.”
This is the picture of the true prophetic. God has all the prophetic words already written and in the appointed time and season He gives it to the person He chose to deliver the message. They eat to scroll, digest it, which means the person partakes of it first and then it is released out of their mouth. Not their own message but the one that was given by the Lord from the scrolls of heaven.
He told Jeremiah in 1:5 that before he was formed in his mother’s womb God knew him and appointed Him to be a prophet. This is what was written in Jeremiah’s scroll. He is not a mistake. He was not confused by is role because God already preordained that.
You are not a mistake. You have purpose. God has already predetermined who you are and what you will be doing for decades to come. All you need to do is find out what is written about you.
Look at what King David said…
Psalm 139:13-16 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
Yes, all of his drama with Saul, his battle with Goliath, his cave-dwelling days, his mess up with Bathsheba….all of it was written
before he even lived one day of it.
Why is it important for you to know this now?
It doesn’t matter what name or label they give the giant, the thing you cannot do is partner with fear. This is not an option. Fear is not of God. When you react or respond in fear what it says is that you believe what the enemy is saying over what God has already written about you. Go read Joshua 1 and see how many times God had to tell him “be strong and courageous, don’t be afraid”. The next thing you will notice is that as soon as Joshua steps into his destiny in the land God stops telling him to be strong and courageous, why?
Because the minute you move forward in spite of the circumstances that spirit of fear has to go.
In every move that you make you have an audience, did you know that? (Philippians 1:28) Yes, you are being watched. The enemy watches to see if you will succumb to the fear. When you move forward in spite of it you are are sending a clear message that you cannot be stopped and then he backs off!
Keep moving forward into your destiny and purpose. Do not allow the enemy to stop you or paralyze you at this moment. Shut off the TV, stop reading your Facebook feed, stop reading all the “updates”. It is irrelevant to your purpose and destiny. Stay on track. Do not be distracted. It’s a distraction. Align yourself with the Joshua and Calebs, disconnect from the 10 other spies because they are going nowhere! Guard your ear and your eye gate! Joshua was battle-ready, you need to be battle-ready. If the treat is right in from of your face and you can’t ignore it, you have an Armor, use it!
Here’s a simple prayer…
Lord, what is it the enemy doesn’t want me to see in this hour. What is the reason for this distraction?
The minute you discern what it is make sure you step into it. You can’t afford to miss your appointment with destiny because you are distracted by a bee who already has the stinger removed! Oh death, where is thy sting? 1 Cor 15:55
It is very obvious, there is something we are about to miss.
For those of you who want to know what is written in your scroll know this, God is never going to reveal to another person more about your future than He will reveal to you. Ask God.
If Samuel, with his prophetic mantle, didn’t even know which one of Jesse’s son he was going to anoint to be King…that should be a sign to you that prophecy is limited (we know in part and we prophesy in part) and…God is NEVER going to tell someone more about you that He is willing to reveal to you.
Certain things, especially destiny moves are completely sealed up…even from the prophets. Stop running to and fro looking for personal prophetic word. Go ask God for yourself. The Lord is waiting for you to ask Him.
Spend time seeking the Lord about your own future.
Prayer for revelation from your scrolls:
Abba Father, I thank you that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I thank you that I have purpose and destiny over my life. I bind the spirit of fear from operating over me. I loose clarity and focus to walk forward into my destiny. I humbly ask Lord that You would reveal to me what is written in Your scrolls about me for my future. Give me a snap shot of what will happen in 5, 10, 15, 20 years from now and beyond. I need to see what I will be so that I can be encouraged to carry on. I ask for You to loose the angels of destiny over me to usher me into the phase of this journey, in Jesus name, Amen.
Write down whatever He reveals, ask Him for scriptures to back it up.
This is going to offer so much security to you in your lifetime so that when things or people come against you, or the enemy tries to make alliances with you, there will be only one response…I don’t have time for this, it is not in my scroll.
The Lord is saying to all of us in this hour that we should never look like the world. We shouldn’t speak like the world. Instead our speech in this year of the mouth, is what will set us apart. It is what says to those around us that we are different. Loose faith with your tongue and not fear. Show kindness where selfishness is rampant. Pour love out on those you meet. If you see someone who has lack, share with them. When the world shrinks back in fear, it is your time to step forward. It is your time to shine! Be the beacon of light in this dark world. You are being given the opportunity at this very moment to show who you are. This is a setup for you to shine. You are the living epistle in this hour. The Lord has presented a platform right now for us to walk upon it, take the microphone and speak Jesus. The world is listening. They are watching you. You have the platform.
