(This prophetic word was received on April 28, 2020) In delivering this word, I come in a spirit of love, also receiving the word first to myself, as it first comes to me for correction, though continuing with full understanding that it is to be shared with the body of Christ at large and those flowing in a prophetic anointing.

WORD FOR THE PROPHETS & NEXT WAVE - May 2020
There is a discrepancy among the prophets due to several things.
- Prophesying out of their own spirit/prophesying presumptuously(Deut.18)
- Fear of hearing and delivering Hard words:
- Desire to stay in shallow water, rather than moving out into the deep
There is a discrepancy among the prophets because many of them are prophesying out of their own spirit. Though they love Me, they have not taken the time to stand in My council, sit before Me and hear what I am truly saying.
Jeremiah 23: 18-24
18 For who hath stood in the counsel of the Lord, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?
19 Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.
20 The anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.
21 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
22 But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
23 Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off?
24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.
They are easily succumbing to the spirit that says:
“Speak to us smooth things”
10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: KJV
10 Who say to the seers, “You must not see visions”;
And to the prophets, “You must not prophesy to us what is right,
Speak to us [a]pleasant words,
Prophesy illusions. NASB
And they are afraid to hear the truth or things difficult to speak for fear of persecution or not being liked by men, and they are giving in to a man-pleasing spirit instead of a God pleasing spirit. They need to trust in Me.
10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. (KJV)
10 For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ. (NASB)
Therefore they stay in the encouragement realm, and they speak in shallow waters, out of their own spirit. They don’t want to have to hear difficult things and they are almost like the children of Israel in the camp after the law was given, they saw the cloud, thundering, lightening, saw smoke (from the mountain), heard the noise of the trumpet but they wanted Moses to hear for them. (Exo. 20, Deut. 5). They have the capacity to hear, but they don’t always exercise courage to step out and speak (what I want to instruct them). They rely on “old manna”, past words, borrowed words, and lean upon their reputation for being able to hear so they assume it must be right.
22 These words the Lord spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.
23 And it came to pass, when ye heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders;
24 And ye said, Behold, the Lord our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth.
25 Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of the Lord our God any more, then we shall die.
26 For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?
27 Go thou near, and hear all that the Lord our God shall say: and speak thou unto us all that the Lord our God shall speak unto thee; and we will hear it, and do it.
Regarding current events: Older prophets should have seen the current events, and should have heard but their ears were closed and eyes blinded, otherwise they would have no choice but to share because of the gravity of the word and what is forthcoming. This is much like Elisha wondering why he didn’t perceive the Shunammite woman’s disfortune regarding her son dying. (2 Kings 4).
2 Kings 4:27
27 And when she came to the man of God to the hill, she caught him by the feet: but Gehazi came near to thrust her away. And the man of God said, Let her alone; for her soul is vexed within her: and the Lord hath hid it from me, and hath not told me.
They must repent and come back to Me. Repent and return as a child and be not afraid. Stop being men-pleasers. Prophets don’t always have a word “all of the time” and many are succumbing to that pressure to keep up with their comrades and are prophesying presumptuously and out of their own spirit. Many are teaching and they should call it teaching instead of prophesying! That is fine. It is okay to teach.
THE NEW CROP
Therefore, I am raising up a new group of prophets, along with evangelists who will speak bolding in My name. They will be unafraid to speak the truth, whether it relates to prosperity or adversity and being pleasant or uncomfortable. The new crop I’m raising up will be knowledgeable, likable, trustworthy, while hearing from Me. They will be persecuted, but respected for telling the truth. Stand by as they come.
This new crop will have the John the Baptist anointing. They will be rough around the edges, not easily accepted in typical church settings. They will be out of the loop, but in God’s loop. They will be from all walks of life, and be all types of people, not readily accepted in traditional church society. They will be store workers, next door neighbors, doctors, lawyers, teachers, stay-at-home moms, social media influencers….they will be undetectable. Meaning you won’t be able to look at them and know they are prophets/evangelists.
Jesus said, What therefore did you go out to see? A man in soft raiment? Men in soft raiment live in kings houses….What wherefore did you go out to see? (Matthew 11: 7-12)
(He asked this question THREE TIMES)
.....for he was more than a prophet.
Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart.
OK, So these prophets will be like "special ops" prophets, set aside for specific assignments, hiding, as though it were, in plain sight. (Ex. Moses, Esther, David)
These will be John the Baptist-type prophets and Samuel-type prophets, and the Lord is raising up Evangelists in this hour! The anointing for callings are dropping down for Evangelists in this hour….everyone will want to be an evangelist, as He bestows abundant honor on that part which lacketh. (1 Cor. 12)
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.
Just like it was the pastors in the 80’s and prophets in the 90’s and 2000’s, the call of the evangelist is coming back again STRONG and they will hit the streets with their bold word and calling for repentance.
So, these men and women of God will have the ability to do HARD THINGS. They will be out in the wilderness, down by the river, performing baptisms both water and spirit. They will have the ability to ENDURE HARD THINGS AND DO HARD THINGS. This will be a tough calling, but God is pouring out His grace for it. They will cut off heads and have their heads cut off (figuratively).
They will be somewhat eccentric and perceived as eccentric and won’t appear to “have it all together”. They will not care about titles, getting a seat at the table (so-to-speak), speaking at a meeting, getting money upfront. Some may never get behind a microphone or a pulpit. They will live on little and some will have much. Meaning whatever they have their sustenance and sufficiency is from the Lord, not in what they have (material things).
They will have a different diet and be fed by unlikely sources. For example, the widow of Zarephath (1 Kings 17) provided Elijah with one little cake, and prior to that he was fed by the ravens bread and flesh. He drank of the brook Cherith.
- Elijah ate a little cake, drank from brook, fed by ravens
- John the Baptist ate locust and wild honey
- Ezekiel ate the scroll
- Samson was not to drink wine and lived by the Nazarite vow.
So, they will not eat what everyone else is eating or go where everyone else goes. They will receive their glory from God, not by man. The Holy Spirit may redirect them in their travels, like Paul and Barnabus on their way in Acts 16. They wanted to preach in Asia, but were forbidden to speak in Asia. Then the call from Macedonia came.
Acts 16: 6-9
6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,
7 After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.
8 And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.
9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.
PART OF THEIR ASSIGNMENT
Part of their assignment will be cleaning up other peoples’ messes. They will have to clean up other people’s messes and deliver hard words. For example, Samuel cleaned up Saul’s mess in (1 Sam. 15: 1-35). Saul didn’t kill or utterly destroy the Amalekites, so Samuel had to kill Agag in the end.
They will have to deliver hard words, like when Nathan said to David in 2 Samuel 12:7 Thou art the man!
Samuel spoke against Eli and Eli’s house. His first word was a tough word.
After days of being followed by the woman with a spirit of divination (python spirit), and VEXED, Paul turned and said to the spirit….. (Acts 16: 16-18) “I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour”.
And they may have to rebuke publicly (or privately) which may affect the life of the people around them, including their life. Whether positively or negatively.
They will teach, evangelize and prophesy to the multitudes whom many will turn a deaf ear to, but a portion will break through. A portion will hear them. The results of their word delivered will be the seed that grows secretly, and watering and reaping the harvest.
There will be some with evangelistic mantles who plow like the ox and some will manifest miracles. There will also be a revivalist in this day among them. A big revivalist.
There will be those that gather prophets together, as it were in caves, like Obadiah, seeking to facilitate divine connections and protection in numbers. Obadiah set the prophets in camps of 50 and fed them.
A WORD AGAIN ABOUT THEIR DIET
What they eat and consume will be different. Where they go will be different. What that looks like in the natural is: they may watch different things than the average person, eat differently, go places not often frequented. They won’t do the typical things, or what we regard as typical in today’s society. Their hearts will be pure. They will hold no motives for the gain of money (not to say they won’t have money, but it is not their final objective, it’s not their goal in life) Jesus said My meat is to do the Will of Him who sent me. I only do what I see my father do and say what I see my father say. But even in this, Jesus did have money, as we know, because Judas was in charge of the money they collected. But once again, they are not looking for vainglory or recognition, for they know their reward is in heaven. The servants the prophets main consumption is feeding on the Word of God in obscure places.
They will endure a heavier form of persecution and suffering for My namesake. They hold a heavier word and therefore a heavier persecution. They will speak out against sin and other things, bring correction, call for repentance. Like John the Baptist. They will be as the voice of one crying in the wilderness (Matt. 3:3). They will encounter more demonic activity and spiritual warfare because of their calling. (Jezebels and Herodias wife after them with cunning ways to trap them)
Their attitude is like,.... I’m running to the battle! Who is this uncircumcised Philistine who’s come to taunt the armies of God. They will be very, very bold and zealous for the Lord. Totally sold out to Him. They won’t shrink back in a corner, they themselves will enlist and call for a challenge….like the Elijah and the 450 prophets of Baal (he called for the challenge and mocked their gods) and later when he was challenged,
he said “If I be a man of God, then let fire fall from heaven and consume this sacrifice”
2 Kings 1:10
10 And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
These are some bold individuals! A whole different breed! They didn’t come to play nice or play patty-cake with the devil. They aren’t part of the seeker church mentality! They are coming with bold faith, to show forth the power of God. The kingdom of God isn’t in eloquent speech but in power! They will be perceived as a “troubler of Israel” (1 Kings 18:17) or a “troubler to the church” because they will challenge the church's lackadaisical, complacent attitude, challenge the lukewarm spirit and cause them to CHOOSE whether they’ll serve God or idols.
One may just shut up the rain toward an audience of one and another may call fire down from heaven amongst an audience.
Some will be like Abraham and exhibit great faith amongst families. And provide family counseling. They will inadvertently end up places and facilitate healing in households from curses, plagues, and household salvation. (Genesis 12: 17-19 and Gen. 20)
Two anointings may not look exactly alike. They have different calls, though both equally powerful
Some of their outward appearance, may be distinctive, and may not blend in with the typical things you see in the church. Ex. Elijah wore a hairy coat, and leather girdle, possibly sheep/goatskin (2 Kings 1:8). John the Baptist wore a raiment of camel’s hair and leather girdle and ate locusts and wild honey.
THE CALL & DIVINE PROTECTION
Regarding their heavy call, they will be divinely protected by God
Because of the level of warfare, these ministers will have stricter directions not to deviate, so as to pollute their anointing or have it taken from them.
They’ll have to pay attention to the directives they receive from the Lord, because of the call on their lives. Ex. Samson lost his anointing, right in the midst of the Philistines, being lulled to sleep. The prophet/man of God at Bethel who cried against the altar was deceived by an old prophet, though he was given strict orders from God on how to come and go. He was to go up one way and come back another way, and not speak to anyone, not stop along the way, but he resisted at first and then did anyway. Meaning he ended up stopping anyways, to eat at the old prophets house who envied him and sought to destroy his anointing. These prophets and evangelists will have to be careful about associates, familial-like spirits that made him feel safe (such as in the body of Christ in church we may feel safe, or meeting a new potential mate, etc). They will be chased by Jezebel spirits, Python Spirits, Spirits of Envy/Old prophet….
They must stir up the gifts and keep themselves among people of like-mind. (1 Tim. 4:14). The church at Antioch, they gathered and prayed and fasted and let the Holy Ghost direct their steps. (Acts 13) The may be divinely directed by God and pay attention to closed doors and locked doors, they are closed for a reason. Ex. Paul forbade to preach the word in Asia. Jesus crossed through Samaria and met the woman at the well and ministered to her when it seemed strange for Him to do. (St. John 4).
So in summary, these are ministers after my own heart and this new crop of ministers will be emerging and as they arise we must be praying and interceding for them and their protection. We need not judge at first appearance.
