Be Free to Love
In training the prophets in our Prophetic School and now also having started more of that in a live setting here in South Africa, I am always amazed to see, how the Lord really deals with our hearts.
I was just speaking to a student the other day who enquired a bit about what the training entailed.
I said to them (something that my spiritual parents always say), "You know, for you to start flowing in the gifts and receiving the anointing, that is a matter of seconds. You don't have to go to school for that.
What you need to go to school for and what you need the pressure of training for, is your character, your soul and the very person you are."
As prophets, and as any fivefold minister for that matter, we are called to bring the Church to maturity. Each one of the fivefold does that in a unique way, but we are all called to bring change!
That change can really only come, once you change. One of the biggest things I see the Lord doing day in and day out, in my life and in that of those we meet, is tearing down walls.
You have likely been hurt on your journey more than once. Either you faced rejection or people just plain thought you were crazy. Now, there is likely some truth to that. You probably are a bit crazy... but well, we can talk about that in another post, or you can drop us a line or give us a call and we can chat.
However, the point I want to make is that hurts from the past, and especially your response to those hurts, can really stand in your way. They build walls around your heart and as a result, nothing can go in or out of your heart, the way it's really meant to.
It's those things that block you from rising up. It's not the fact that you are not anointed enough or that you need to somehow get holier.
It's time you take responsibility and allow the Lord to touch your heart. There are things there that He wants you to let go off and there are parts of your heart that require His healing touch.
As I was just asking the Lord what He wanted to share with you, He said that it's this message that you need more than anything right now. You are all called to bring faith, hope and love to the Church. Whether you do that as a prophet, teacher, pastor or whatever, doesn't matter.
You are called to bring change - so start with changing your heart so that it can become more like that of our Lord Jesus!
I have a fantastic message for you that Apostle Colette preached a while back. It's called At Liberty to Love.
If you feel at all that you are stuck and that you can't seem to get past this plateau, it's well possible that you are holding on to the things of the past. It's time for you to give love and also to receive love. So get some good teaching, and more than that, get some external help to smash those walls now, hey?
Jesus is the lover of your soul. He wants to pour His love out to you. Are you ready to receive it, and then, hand it out as well?
