Prophetic Word September 2020 – Time to Get Off Autopilot
This prophetic word is titled Time to Get Off Auto Pilot. This one like the last prophetic word has a few different messages in it. They all relate to operating on Auto Pilot and you’ll know which one is for you after you read it.
One of my brothers is a pilot, and I remember having a conversation with him about the larger aircrafts like the airbus and I was telling him that I was fascinated that someone can fly something that large. I assumed it must be super difficult to do. He proceeded to tell me that it is actually harder to fly the smaller planes than the larger ones because the larger aircrafts have the fancy equipment and by putting in your coordinates the plane flies itself between take off and landing. Those pilots have nothing else to do but sleep and enjoy the view, unless…
You see all the training in flying happens with the smaller aircrafts when you have to learn to actually fly the airplane. Manually. Once you get so many hours from the smaller aircraft, you graduate to a bigger aircraft and then you get in more hours at that level then you graduate to a bigger aircraft then you get to a bigger aircraft and so on and so forth. You start from ground level up so that once you get to flying an airbus you don’t actually fly the aircraft anymore the fancy equipment does it for you. Isn’t that funny?
They take off, put the airplane on auto pilot, the airplane then gets them all the way to the landing, then the pilot takes over and lands the plane.
You actually know what to do at the higher level but you don’t do it anymore because the equipment does it for you. The Auto Pilot, unless….
Equipment failure. Malfunction. If the Auto Pilot malfunctions the pilot has to fly the airplane. You see in the end all those hours of training does have a place when there is an emergency.
I remember reading in the news a story of pilots flying on autopilot and the plane lined itself up to go in for the landing at the airport. Thankfully they looked out the window and realized that it wasn’t the airport but instead it was the Dam/Reservoir! They had to quickly take it off auto pilot and ascend quickly to stop the plane from landing in the Dam! Then use their years of knowledge to get the airplane to the airport which was miles away from where they actually were.
The message the Lord wanted me to deliver to you all is that some of you are actually operating on auto pilot right now and He wants you to get off that! Otherwise, you may end up in a place where you will be saying “how did I get here?” You followed all the rules, did the right things and still you end up in the wrong place. How is that? Auto Pilot malfunction.
You know, we do a fast at the beginning of the year and as a part of the fast there is dream interpretation. I always advise everyone not to send us any dreams they had prior to the start of the fast. Why? Because God is speaking now! Today. This week. You may not know this but if you didn’t follow the instructions God gave for your past dreams and prophetic words, there’s a possibility those prophecies are no longer valid. There are doors of opportunity that are seasonal, when God says move, you need to move because in waiting you may lose the opportunity.
What happens is that people then try to bang the door down or kick it in because GOD SAID! But the question is, when did He tell you that? What were the instructions He gave you to step into that and did you do it? Some things work with timing. You miss the timing, you miss the door. Then you have to wait for it to cycle around again. Sometimes, God may need to change the way you access that thing. It’s not that you won’t get what He promised but the way He told you it would happen may have changed. When you are on Auto Pilot you assume everything is going according to plan, except it is not!
I was working with a dear sweet lady who was waiting for something for 10 years that God told her would happen. Well, 1 year into the wait she knew in her spirit that she was supposed to move to another city but through a series of event (demonic opposition) she didn’t move. And there she was waiting and waiting and nothing was happening. I had to tell her that she missed the turn 9 years ago when she failed to move. The only option now is for her to find out:
- Is the prophetic word still valid? Meaning, is God still going to do this. Some things are conditional and seasonal so you need to know where it stands today, right now.
- If it’s still valid, what she needs to do to get back on track with that prophecy. God will give the strategies and next steps that are needed to get back to it. Then it requires immediate obedience. In being obedient you then reroute, recalibrate, realign.
There are many of you attached to things …places…people and God’s Spirit has long moved on from that but because you got it in a prophecy or dream years ago you are still attached to it. The “Cloud has moved” God’s presence is no longer hovering over that. Therefore, it is time for you to move on instead of staying stuck on it.
You will never be able to accept what God has for you today until you let go of the past. That Manna (bread, the Word) was good for yesterday (past seasons) but today it may have worms. (Exodus 16:4-21)
Come off of the Auto Pilot and get a Now word for your life.
You may need to break soul ties with some things to fully move on.
You need to come off Auto Pilot in this season for other reasons.
Some of you are living in very volatile communities and neighborhoods, don’t take it for granted that you can just leave your house and go out to the store like you do everyday. We’re coming into a season when you will need to start asking God for direction on your every move.
On every move.
Just because you did it last week doesn’t mean you can do it this week.
To wear a mask or not to wear a mask? What is God telling you to do? Auto Pilot says “you don’t have any faith because you’re wearing a mask” Are you sure about that? In past seasons, that would be a fair assumption. But today? You may need to rethink that. There are many pastors and congregants that are dead right now because they believed wearing a mask showed lack of faith. They believed following what the authorities said about congregating in close proximity was going against God.
If you’ve ever read the book of Proverbs what you will find is that you can read 2 pages of scriptures and then the following 2 pages appear to contradict the the first 2 pages. Why is that?
Time and Season.
Different Time. Different Season.
Wisdom is knowing when to apply each scripture. When applied in the wrong season, it’s wrong decision.
Make sure what you do GOD is telling you to do it. Your daily decisions for you and your family shouldn’t be governed by your pastor, the scientist, research says, your political affiliation or the government. GOD is the one who is running the show. HE is going to keep you safe if you will go to Him and ask.
You can have one church open for services and no one gets sick and another will do the same thing and people die. Who is right and who is wrong? We need to hear from God and we need to follow what He’s telling us to do individually and not cave to the fear of man. Or to fear, period.
Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.”
God is using this to work on us individually. He’s giving individual instructions on this thing.
Should you take the vaccine or not? Ask God. And, don’t judge others who choose a different path from the one you did.
You know, I’ve said it before in other prophetic words when God started drying up the words He was giving to the prophetic community in summer 2019 (well, let’s just say some kept putting out words but it was nothing new), I asked Him what was going on and He said to me…I need you to teach them how to hear from Me for themselves.
Hmmm, I thought there had to be something coming and people needed to hear God all on their own. To me that meant there was going to be some exposure of some false prophets and that was the reason for it. Well, obviously it is waaay bigger than that. And, here we are today.
You need to hear for yourself.
The enemy is very slick while we are trying to figure out what is happening in the midst of the confusion, he’s using us (the church) to curse and judge each other, with our mouths. He’s using us to attack and judge each other, the leaders, the government, our own family members with our mouth. It is the decade of the mouth. And while we’re doing it, we believe we are correct. Don’t fall for it!
As a young Christian in my eagerness, I used to go to one our pastors and make suggestions about many different things. The way things should go and what I believed was the right way to do things and he would always use this phrase with me “let’s wait until the dust settles” Sigh. I used to get so frustrated because I wanted it done NOW but I had to wait. Inevitably, how I saw things in the end was different from how I saw them in the beginning because when the “dust settled” things became clear.
There’s a lot of dust flying around right now in our world and I don’t believe any of us knows what is the 100% right thing to do in all situations. So until we can see clearly, after the dust has settled, we need to be careful what we are saying about others and how we are judging them. You may just find out in the end that what you believed to be the truth is actually a lie.
Who do you trust? Who’s telling truth? The experts don’t even know. Nothing but conflicting information. And you know what? Some of them aren’t even lying, they just don’t know!
The Equipment has malfunctioned.
So at this point the only option is to get off auto pilot. Ask God.
If there is someone that you just don’t like, let’s say you think they are really evil, the best way for you to change that is to ask God to show you how He sees them. It’s a simple prayer but in order to pray this you need to try for a moment to put your feelings aside and posture you heart to really hear from God about that person. Then pray this…
“Lord, you know how I feel about this person but I really want to see them how You see them. Show me how You see them “
If you truly meant that from your heart, God will show you who they are.
“I love all who love Me.
Those who search will surely find Me.
The next verse tells us exactly what He has when we find Him.
18 I have riches and honor,
as well as enduring wealth and justice.
Yes, don’t look for justice in the wrong place! God’s got that! Ask Him. God is the only One who can deliver justice that can’t be overruled, overturned, benched, shelved or vetoed!! Call for the King of Glory and step back! If the default mode on your auto pilot is set to flesh, then every decision you make in this season is coming from the soulish realm, and you are heading in the wrong direction.
You could be 100% right BUT, the way in which you do a thing is important to God.
Hear it again, the methods you use are important to God. Because HE is not going to allow you to obtain victory in a soulish/fleshly manner and then try to attach His name to it and say it is Him. His Spirit will move off of that so quickly, even if you are right, because He will not allow you to profane His name.
No. The way in which you do it is just as important. Any justice obtained through the flesh will need to be sustained through flesh. And, that is very exhausting. No more auto pilot default to flesh.
This is nothing new because as the Israelites traveled from Egypt to the promised land they had to follow the cloud my day and the fire by night. This represented the presence of the Lord that led them through this time of transition. So if the cloud stood in the same spot more than one day they knew they needed to remain there. It was a DAILY looking to God to get through the wilderness.
I once heard a minister say, even the supply of the manna was daily! The food they were eating was given on a daily basis. If they tried to save some for the next day it would have worms in it. Because God was sending them a clear message…you need to come to me DAILY to get the fresh word!
Jesus is the Bread of Life.
Jesus is baking up fresh bread, fresh manna, for you daily. You need to ask Him what He has for you daily. Now is not the time to operate off old revelation. It has worms! It was fine yesterday. Today? Not so much.
What does getting off auto pilot look like practically?
It’s really simple. Everyday when you wake up you spend some time in prayer
“Lord, what do you have for me today? Is there anything special You need for me to do for You today?” Then you need to sit in silence. He will tell you. Something will come to mind. Write it down. Maybe there is something you forgot to do and He will remind you of it. Then you go back again “Is that all or is there something else?” Write it down. You keep going through this until nothing else comes to you. Then you tell Him what you plans are “I’m planning on doing this _______ today, are you OK with me doing this?”
Some of you need to take your personal prophetic words to Him in the same manner “God is this still valid?” Wait for the answer. Then if He told you how it was going to happen originally, find out if the way is still valid. The method, the way, the access point, the pathway through which this would happen. For some of you the enemy set up obstacles and barricades so now God has to take you in a different way. But how are you going to know that if you don’t ask? You could be waiting for years when it is no longer coming through that door.
If you’ve ever used the navigation system in driving, say Apple Maps, you can have several ways to get to a destination but there could be an accident on the shortest route. Unless you are using the navigation system before heading out (even though you know the way), you could end up in the middle of an accident and get to your destination late. The navigation system will reroute you to get you where you need to be. And, sometimes it’s not the way you would normally take. Same thing with your destiny. The devil knows when you are right at the doorway. Why in the world do you think we are going through what we are going through now???? He is using every and all things in his arsenal to stop you.
Holy Spirit reroutes people all the time!
You could be sitting in that traffic jam now saying “what is going on? How long do I have to sit here?” When all you need to do is ask God for another route to get there!
Proverbs 3:5-6 AMP
If you are heading home from work and decide to go to the supermarket, ask Him if you should be doing that.
Practicing this level of mindfulness of God in every and all situations will keep your spirit sharpened to the leading of the Holy Spirit so that when He gives you instructions, you are going to KNOW when something changed.
Get into the habit of reading the bible every night before you go to bed.
2 Chronicles 15:2-4 “Listen to me, Asa!” he shouted. “Listen, all you people of Judah and Benjamin! The Lord will stay with you as long as you stay with Him! Whenever you seek Him, you will find Him. But if you abandon Him, He will abandon you. 3 For a long time Israel was without the true God, without a priest to teach them, and without the Law to instruct them. 4 But whenever they were in trouble and turned to the Lord, the God of Israel, and sought Him out, they found Him.
Matthew 6:9-11 9 In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread…
Daily. Get off the Auto Pilot. Seek God Daily. Don’t allow the enemy to use your mouth to curse or judge others. Remember to love people.
Is there any other way in which you see the church using the Autopilot to operate, please share.
