Prophetic Word – Watch out for unbelief
This prophetic word is titled Watch out for unbelief. This is a very short prophetic word and it’s not for everyone but you’ll know when you read it if it’s for you.
Last Friday, which was July 18th through to Saturday, July 19th was the 9th of AV on the Hebraic Calendar. This was the day when the spies came back from the promised land and 10 of them gave a bad report.
Numbers 13:27-33, 14:1-4
27 “We came into the land where you sent us, and it certainly does flow with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. 28 Nevertheless, the people who live in the land are strong, and the cities are fortified and very large. And indeed, we saw the descendants of Anak there! 29 Amalek is living in the land of the Negev, the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites are living in the hill country, and the Canaanites are living by the sea and by the side of the Jordan.”
30 Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said, “We should by all means go up and take possession of it, for we will certainly prevail over it.” 31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, because they are too strong for us.” 32 So they brought a bad report of the land which they had spied out to the sons of Israel, saying, “The land through which we have gone to spy out is a land that devours its inhabitants; and all the people whom we saw in it are people of great stature. 33 We also saw the Nephilim there (the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”
14 Then all the congregation raised their voices and cried out, and the people wept that night. 2 And all the sons of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron; and the entire congregation said to them, “If only we had died in the land of Egypt! Or even if we had died in this wilderness! 3 So why is the Lord bringing us into this land to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will become plunder! Would it not be better for us to return to Egypt?” 4 So they said to one another, “Let’s appoint a leader and return to Egypt!”
I know for some of you over the last week and a half you may have been feeling a little “blah”, not quite sure how you’re doing, not sure what to believe anymore, discouraged, disappointed, don’t know which direction to go, “in a funk”. I want to tell you that this is a spiritual thing that will pass. It’s in the atmosphere and it is there to shake your faith. It has nothing to do with you. Don’t own it.
There’s no prayer to pray. Just remain calm. Don’t make any decisions right now especially if the decisions look anything like going back to a place where you left. No. This whole “feeling” you’re having right now is going to blow over. I want you to just keep one thing in mind…
What did God say?
You are at a fork in the road and your faith in that promise is being tested right now. Don’t make the wrong decision or throw in the towel because you’re just too tired of waiting. Just be calm. Let this week past, the feeling will pass and then you’re going to notice you’ll start feeling better and you’ll make the right decisions. I want to point out 2 things about those spies (1) They were telling the truth!!! No lies were being told. That means that some of the things that are making you “shaky” right now can be the TRUTH. BUT, it doesn’t matter. What did God say? (2) The majority of the spies were saying it. How different would the scenario be if it was 2 with unbelief and 10 with faith?? I think the Israelites would’ve went in if the majority were giving a good report. This is important for you to know so that you understand that you can’t always follow the crowd. What did God say?
Take out your journal with all the confirmations you’ve received from the Lord and read them again. Then REST.
7 That is why the Holy Spirit says,
“Today when you hear his voice,
8 don’t harden your hearts
as Israel did when they rebelled,
when they tested me in the wilderness.
9 There your ancestors tested and tried my patience,
even though they saw my miracles for forty years.
10 So I was angry with them, and I said,
‘Their hearts always turn away from me.
They refuse to do what I tell them.’
11 So in my anger I took an oath:
‘They will never enter my place of rest.’”
12 Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters. Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving, turning you away from the living God. 13 You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,” so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God. 14 For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ. 15 Remember what it says:
“Today when you hear his voice,
don’t harden your hearts
as Israel did when they rebelled.”
16 And who was it who rebelled against God, even though they heard his voice? Wasn’t it the people Moses led out of Egypt? 17 And who made God angry for forty years? Wasn’t it the people who sinned, whose corpses lay in the wilderness? 18 And to whom was God speaking when he took an oath that they would never enter his rest? Wasn’t it the people who disobeyed him? 19 So we see that because of their unbelief they were not able to enter his rest.
What you don’t want to do is make rash decisions right now and you do not want to open your mouth and speak negatively against the promise. It is best to remain silent, even if in your heart you are struggling to hold on. Don’t speak it out of your mouth. You create with your words so everything you are saying right now is creating something. Don’t speak the problem speak the solution. What do you want? Speak that. When you open your mouth, make sure that what comes out of it is something good. I’m just posting this to let you know you are not alone. But you don’t want to form alliances with the “spirit of the 10 spies” aka unbelief and doubt with your mouth. Peace. Be still. Rest.
Hoping this will put some perspective on what’s going on for some of you.
