Prophets In The Gap And Prophetic Ministry
The Holy Spirit expects His prophets to stand in the gap and make up the hedge. New Testament prophets are part of the five-fold ministry ascension gifts. “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:11-12). All these ministry gifts are needed to advance the kingdom of God by making Disciples of Christ.
The Holy Spirit told me, “My prophets are going to start seeing me in a different way.” I believe that a different way is a restoration of a more biblical way regarding the word of the Lord, gift of prophecy, prophetic gifting, prophetic words, spiritual gifts, the local church, and their ministry responsibilities.
Prophets and prophetic disciples of Christ are important. The prophetic ministry is a supernatural and powerful ministry grace because it stands against demonic corruption at every level. All over the world corruption is manifesting. Corruption is a lack of integrity and a state of progressive depravity. Because of corruption, everything that can be shaken is being shaken.
The only way to address corruption is through the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Prophets, God’s prophets, are dependent on His anointing to pull down, throw down, destroy, build and plant. Prophets are called to turn hearts. Turning hearts requires saying what needs to be said when it needs to be said. That oftentimes means a clash in the realm of the spirit. If we are to see nations changed, we need prophetic ministers to get in their place. Prophetic ministers:
Turn hearts of the fathers toward the children.
Are spokesmen of God’s will.
A voice in the wilderness.
Ambassadors of the Kingdom of God.
Challengers of demonic principalities and powers.
Speak truth to power just as Elijah did to Ahab.
Confront the Jezebel spirit that wants to teach, diminish the importance of men, usurp God ordered authority, and imprison true prophetic ministers.
The spiritual showdown is on and the warfare will increase. Nevertheless, let God arise and His enemies be scattered! Get in your place. There is no turning back.
