This is part two of a prophetic word I released earlier this month. I am getting more revelation right now than I am able to process. Things are heating up in Heaven for one of the greatest shows on Earth. I have been prophesying that a revival is coming, in fact God is saying it is starting soon!
The outcasts are God’s priority
Here is a portion of the prophetic word I released in January 2016:
“Last year on New Year’s Eve, I had a very powerful encounter in which I literally heard the audible cries of people who have been wounded by uncaring Christians and leaders. Then I heard (this part was not audible) the Lord say, ‘Their blood has reached my ears and I must respond.’”
In 2016, God’s new agenda is about those who have been wounded by Christianity. These are the spiritual outcasts who do not fit into typical churches. Many have been pushed away, deeper into darkness, by the very ones who hold the keys to God’s light and love.”
Ezekiel 34 mantles
Then on June 9, 2016, I had a radical encounter and was suddenly standing in the Courts of Heaven, a council meeting was taking place—similar to Zechariah 3. God spoke to me with a thundering voice, “Son, prophesy Ezekiel 34!” I knew the meaning of Ezekiel 34 as God had spoken it to me previously with a prophecy I released in February 2013—Super Bowl: Prophetic Sign Seen by the World.
In the encounter, I was shown parts of Ezekiel 34 that are now God’s agenda for those who have been wounded by mean shepherds and fat sheep. These wounded, weak sheep are people who need God’s love—and have been driven away from churches. Ezekiel 34 goes on to say that the mean shepherds and fat sheep, who do not have God’s heart of love, are allowing the enemy to ravish the weaker sheep.
I have been bringing a similar prophetic word for a number of years. One of the next revivals is going to be in the group of spiritual outcasts who have been rejected and considered unclean by many Christians. This may include women stepping up into leadership, political parties not accepted by many Christians, those with tattoos and piercings, the ones who are into zombies and vampires, New Age people, LGBT and minorities—to name a few.
We do not have to agree with the things these people might believe and support, but what God is calling us to is to love them unconditionally. I am not saying they are unclean, but they have been rejected and mistreated terribly by some Christians over the years. Many have been scattered and driven away from the opportunity to worship Jesus. As an evangelist and missionary to the outcasts for years, I have heard literal horror stories of the damage and rejection people have received in the name of Jesus.
Many Christians have driven people away from God
“You have not strengthened the weak or healed the sick or bound up the injured. You have not brought back the strays or searched for the lost. You have ruled them harshly and brutally. So they were scattered because there was no shepherd, and when they were scattered they became food for all the wild animals.” Ezekiel 34:4–5 NIV
“‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says to them: See, I myself will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep. Because you shove with flank and shoulder, butting all the weak sheep with your horns until you have driven them away, I will save my flock, and they will no longer be plundered. I will judge between one sheep and another.” Ezekiel 34:20–22 NIV
God is looking for people to show love
God is the judge of each person’s heart and motives. This is a time to step up and be a light in darkness. We really can love people who have been wounded by religion and by Christians who do not love as Jesus does. This wounding is an injustice in the eyes of God and He is preparing a movement to gather the wounded ones to a safe place.
“I will place over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he will tend them; he will tend them and be their shepherd. I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David will be prince among them. I the LORD have spoken.” Ezekiel 34:23–24 NIV
David is symbolic of someone who loves God and will be a warrior to protect and draw the outcasts to God—David’s mighty men were outcasts (look in 1 Samuel 22:2). This is a time in which we need to have a heart like David for people who have been wounded and driven away from having a relationship with God.
Weak sheep defender mantles
While I was in the Courts of Heaven prophesying this, I felt a mantle come on me and the heat of it has not lifted since. I heard the Lord say to deputize weak sheep defenders.
God’s heart and agenda right now is to raise up people who are willing to go after those driven away, and to be defenders of the weak and menders of those who have been wounded. A strong ministry of reconciliation is coming on those who are willing to step up and receive it.
The cost involved
I have been prophesying this and doing outreaches for a number of years. One of the reasons I got very sick for three years—I got healed last May—is that I was being cursed by Christians for doing what Jesus would have done and reaching into the groups I mentioned above.
I encourage you to read Ezekiel 34 for yourself. I am not focusing on the judgment of the mean shepherds and the fat sheep because God is more interested in helping those hurting. We need to become Holy Spirit M*A*S*H units (Mobile Army Surgical Hospitals) to the weak and outcasts.
July 4th celebration in Heaven
I had yet another major encounter at 4 a.m. on Monday, July 4. I woke up to the sound of celebration in Heaven: REJOICE THE TIME HAS COME was repeating over and over. There was excitement and the sound of celebration. I heard shofars blasting and Heaven singing.
The Lord spoke to me that this is the start of a new revival to the spiritual outcasts who have been pushed away by unloving Christians. It is the start of a new revival that will come in waves. It is a good day to celebrate!
Signs in the Super Bowl 2013
On Sunday February 3, 2013, my Daily Prophetic Word was, “A prophetic sign from God will be seen around the world.” During the 3rd quarter of the Super Bowl game that year between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, half of the lights went out for 34 minutes in the New Orleans Superdome. God spoke to me that this was a prophetic sign for Ezekiel 34.
Let’s take a look at the significance of the numbers involved and Ezekiel 34:
Finally, the old generators at the Superdome causing half of the lights to go out is a prophetic sign that the old ways of doing things will not produce the full power we need right now to be a light to the world. Even the fact that the Super Bowl was in New Orleans and it involved teams like San Francisco and Baltimore—east and west coast—is significant.
God is going to move in places that we least expect. We are living in very exciting times. I want to encourage you to not get distracted by all of the things that are happening around us. The enemy does not want you to see the new things being released from Heaven right now.
