Now Word

Be careful who you follow, for not everything is what it seems. There are many who seek their own agenda within the church, thinking they represent Me, but NEVER have. 

Watch and pray for the time as you know it is coming to a close (Matthew 25:13). See the hour is upon you, therefore, encourage My people to pursue the agenda (intention) of heaven and not the plan of man.

There are difficult times ahead, so it is that I desire that you would seek My face, for I am the light that will guide you into the shelter in Me which I have prepared for you.

Oh seek My face, My child, I want to be found by you (Jer 29:13). There is so much more of Myself that I want to reveal to you. I want you to abide in the shadow of My grace, your residence, for this is not your end, but rather the beginning!

My light shall shine through you, pursue My heart!

I am changing the horizon as you see it.  The spiritual landscape is about to be reshaped and reformed. I am removing status men have set in place for themselves and I will bring down the heart that has exalted itself before man and God. 

Deception is rife in the church and I shall expose it for what it is (Eph 5:6). South Africa is in for change. Change in the natural and change in the spirit (1 Cor 15:46). I am about to remove your idols and destroy the agenda that you have set up for yourselves. Many think they honor Me, but the work of their hands is an abomination to Me (Matt 7:21-23).

Stop following man (Pro 14:12), but now more than ever, I desire that you, My people, who are called by My name, shall surrender your hearts to Me (Job 11:13) and submit yourselves to the leading voice of My Spirit. Dark days are ahead and only those who know My voice shall see the path that I have prepared for them to walk on. 

Seek My face, pursue My heart and wait in My presence, for I shall reveal Myself to those who wait on Me... (2 Chron 28:9)

The Meaning of Prophecy

1 Cor 14:1-3

Love should be your guide. Be eager to have the gifts that come from the Holy Spirit, especially the gift of prophecy. If you speak languages that others don't know, God will understand what you are saying, though no one else will know what you mean. You will be talking about mysteries that only the Spirit understands. But when you prophesy, you will be understood, and others will be helped. They will be encouraged and made to feel better.

What is the function of the Prophet in the church today

Eph 4:11-15

Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.

Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.

The gifts we are talking about is always to point people to Jesus Christ and not to draw attention to self.

It is and always has been about Jesus. Now let your gift honor Him...
