Prophetic Word – Listen and Obey, Obey and Listen
These are some statements that the Lord made and He asked me to deliver these to you.
Who is this word for? Everyone. What I am going to do is write exactly what He said in bold, then I am going to put some scriptures that I believe refers to what He said, then I am going to tell you what I think it means. We know in part, and we prophesy in part; so if you receive something else from these statements write it in the comments below. I believe together we can get a clearer picture.
The Lord told me to write these down and to give them to you. I’m giving them to you in the order that He gave them to me. If you want to just hear exactly what He said and nothing more, just read what is in bold.
Holy is the Lamb that was slain
And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.
4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it. 5 But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”
6 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 7 Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.
What I think it means… He didn’t say worthy is the Lamb that was slain, He said HOLY is the Lamb that was slain. This is why you have to write what the Lord tells you right away or you may miss some details. It is because He is Holy, spotless, blameless why He was able to take away the sins of the world. It is because He is Holy why He is able to open the scrolls and loose the seven seals. What are the seven seals? Judgment. You should read them seals in the book of Revelation so that you are able to identify how things will play out in the days ahead. He has the ability to judge because He is HOLY.
Holiness is Purity
1 Peter 1:16
“You must be holy because I am holy.”
For I am the LORD your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy:
Hebrew for Holiness is the word Qadash – to be set apart or consecrated, sanctified, dedicated, holy, prove myself holy.
What I think it means…God wants you to be like Him. He is the example. In order to achieve Holiness you need to be pure. Because Holiness is Purity. Because He was Holy He was able to open the scrolls and break the seals. There are some things you won’t be able to have access to until you become Holy as He is Holy.
Purity is Holiness
“How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word.”
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”
What I think it means…you achieve holiness by being pure. Purity is a heart condition, it has nothing to do with what you look like on the outside (1 Samuel 16:7). When your heart is pure, the outwards things will follow. How do you become pure in your heart? It’s simple, obey God’s word. As you begin to do what He tells you in His word you will become pure in your heart. As purity increases, holiness increases. This is a process. It doesn’t happen overnight. You go through the process by renewing your mind through reading the word of God. Little children will do things that are so pure and innocent because they have yet to be corrupted by this world. They see everything in a pure way. As we get older, we start learning the ways of the world and all its corruption and then we take things that are meant to be pure and pervert it. When your heart is not pure it is easier for you to misjudge a situation. When your heart is not pure you will not hear God clearly. The only way to remain pure and undefiled is to keep your eyes on Jesus (the Word). When you become pure you can see God.
Obedience Brings Long Life
“You shall walk in all the way which the LORD your God has commanded you, that you may live and that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which you will possess.”
“So the Lord commanded us to observe all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God for our good always and for our survival, as it is today.”
What I think it means…whew! This one hit me. I think about how many people have died since 2020, and not just because of Covid. Many other things have happened, and people have lost their lives.
Obedience, your life depends on it!
I will give you Clarity for today, tomorrow and the future
“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.”
What I think it means…have you ever been driving in a car and the fog is so thick you can hardly see what is in front of you? I feel like we are walking through this spiritually right now. When the manna (Word) was falling from heaven while the Israelites were in the wilderness, it was only good for one day (today) then the next day they needed to go and gather the manna for that day as well (tomorrow). On the day before the Sabbath they were allowed to gather the manna for 2 days (the future). You cannot operate off an old word. He’s giving fresh manna, daily. Take the time to stop and ask for it.
Listen and Obey
“Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”
What I think it means….we shouldn’t just hear God’s word we need to do it. When God gives you instructions you should not only listen to it but you need to obey it. When people say to me “I’m not hearing from God” my advice is always to do the last thing He told them to do. If you’re walking down a road and it comes to a T junction and God says turn right, that is because HE is turning right. If you choose to turn left and then realize that things are very quiet that is because He is over on the road that went to the right. You need to go back to that point, turn right and there you will find Him. There will be no further instructions until you follow the last one you were given by Him. Then, you need to stay there until He tells you to move in another direction. Make sure when He shows up He finds you doing what He told you to do.
Obey and Listen
“Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.”
What I think it means…hearing God is a perpetual thing. He speaks, you obey. You obey, He speaks. You stop obeying, He stops speaking. Listen and Obey, Obey and Listen. He’s not going to give you all the steps at once. It’s one step at a time as you obey. Sometimes the Lord will know that the enemy is in your path so He can present detours or tell you to take another route than what He previously told you. However, if you are not obeying each time…and then listening for the next instructions….you’ll miss it.
Immediately after obeying, incline your ears to listen because the next set of instructions will come. It’s a loop.
Read Isaiah 45 – 47
After you’ve read the scriptures, come back to this post and ONLY read the words that are in bold. I believe through that God is going to give you an individual prophetic word.
If you would like to add something else that the Lord reveal to you through these statements write it in the comments below.
