This prophetic word is No More Delays. I’m not going to give a lot of commentary on this one just straight scripture. What I do want to do is tell you how I came by this prophetic word.
The Lord speaks through numbers. I’ve already written a post about what numbers mean here. If you want to know what certain numbers mean you need to read that post, please do not ask in the comments.
For this post, the number in reference is 12:21. I kept seeing this everywhere. So after seeing it several times I decided that I was going to look up scriptures. When I landed on this particular scripture Ezekiel 12:21-28, I thought to myself that this was just wishful thinking on my part. So I brushed it aside.
The following morning a friend of mine called with another scripture that completely confirmed that this was in fact what God was saying. That’s when I got excited because I knew it was God and not my own wishful thinking. Then I thought perhaps it’s just for me and not to be shared with others so I kept it to myself. Except I kept getting the same message everywhere so I knew I had to share it with all of you. I was planning of giving it to you for sure on Friday but I think in the back of my mind God knew that I was still questioning if I should share it or not.
Until this morning in my prayer time for the nations, I asked Him to give me a scripture and when I flipped open the bible it fell right on that page. I need to add this is a new bible so I’ve never used it to look up that scripture. I laughed because I knew then that He was telling me not to have any reservation in sharing it because it is definitely for the church.
So, here it is…
Ezekiel 12:21-18 NLT
21 Again a message came to me from the Lord: 22 “Son of man, you’ve heard that proverb they quote in Israel: ‘Time passes, and prophecies come to nothing.’ 23 Tell the people, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will put an end to this proverb, and you will soon stop quoting it.’ Now give them this new proverb to replace the old one: ‘The time has come for every prophecy to be fulfilled!’
24 “There will be no more false visions and flattering predictions in Israel. 25 For I am the Lord! If I say it, it will happen. There will be no more delays, you rebels of Israel. I will fulfill my threat of destruction in your own lifetime. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!”
26 Then this message came to me from the Lord: 27 “Son of man, the people of Israel are saying, ‘He’s talking about the distant future. His visions won’t come true for a long, long time.’ 28 Therefore, tell them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: No more delay! I will now do everything I have threatened. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!’”
Meditate on this, pray on this and ask God what it means to you.
