KEEP YOUR VESSEL PURE
The Lord says to be careful to keep your vessel pure, keep your ear gates and eyegates pure and to keep your vessel pure. (2 Timothy 2:20-23 KJV) (He says, Be ye holy for I am holy, keep yourself unstained from the world, keep yourself unmuddied by the things of this age which cause vexation of spirit). All in all, to be careful monitoring or surveying other prophets' words and allow the pure, engrafted Word of God to come to you. Do not borrow or steal another prophet’s word. (Jeremiah 23:30) Be careful to not let another prophets’ prophecy influence the Word that God has given to you. To wait on God for the full unveiling of that Word unique to you. Yours is given to you for a specific time and season. Though there may be some overlap, or confirmation, you must be faithful to deliver the Word in the manner in which it was issued to you. When you receive God’s word, you receive His heart, and it must be delivered with His heart at the time of delivery.
(Titus 1:15-16 NKJV)
To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled.
(2 Timothy 2: 20-26 NASB)
20 Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor. 21 Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work. 22Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. 23 But refuse foolish and ignorant speculations, knowing that they produce quarrels. 24 The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, 25 with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.
VISION OF A BLANKET
When you receive similar Words and revelations from God on the same topic, for instance prophecies for the UK, or China, and the Word is delivered in like manner, when the body of Christ hears it, they hear each Word complimenting the other, weaving together, with God’s heart at the center of it all. (Colossians 2:2, Ephesians 4:15-16)
What I see is a blanket. It’s a knitting together like a blanket, woven together, each woven on top of the other line upon line. Your heart must be kept pure, so be careful not to partake of another’s Word at the same time. Once you sense from the Lord that there is a pause, and its waning, and you sense a peace, that God may be finished sharing with you all that He wants to share, then you can start listening to other prophets. And now their Word can bear witness to yours. As the scripture says, “the spirits of prophets are subject to (the control) of prophets and Jesus is the spirit of prophecy”. (1 Corinthians 14:29-33) He wants your ear gates pure, so you can hear clearly what He’s saying to you. And your eyes cleared with eye salve. Every single detail is important, no manner how inconsequential it appears to be.
As God does not impart to you revelations about, for example, the weather, dreams and visions of animals and how it relates to a message to the body of Christ, then by all means go ahead and listen to these prophetic words and be edified, but if you’re in a season where you're hearing the same or similar words as another prophet, take time to refrain from listening, as tempting as it can be, it is important that you refrain so that you receive the Word exactly how God wants to speak it to you, with the symbols and patterns alike/in turn.
DO NOT LET CRITICISM DERAIL YOU
Next, do not be influenced by the criticisms that may come from your Word, because of the word, so to speak. Jesus too, was challenged on a daily basis in this manner. As criticizers and mockers come your way to challenge you with questions like, “When will this be? Or Where is this in the bible? Or How are you receiving these words anyway?”, though you may want to take a separate video or broadcast to address this, (as the Word of God says, we must be apt to teach) do not allow yourself to be sucked down the rabbit hole of responding to criticism with video after video. Do not be detoured or derailed from delivering the Word of the Lord.
God said, “Don’t come off that wall!” Whatever you do, Don’t come off that wall! Stay on your watchtower, standing in His council and continue to receive from Him. You’ll always have those Sanballats and Geshoms to try to distract you to get you off your mark, but it’s important to remain on the wall to watch and pray and see what the Lord will say to me. (Nehemiah 6:2-3, Isaiah 21:5-8, Habakkuk 2:1)
If you fall subject to criticism and distraction, the Word of the Lord will never be delivered. That which God originally intended for you to deliver this season will fall by the wasteside and it will never be delivered. (Matthew 7:6) It will never reach the hearts of good ground that it is to reach, so it can bring forth fruit. (Isaiah 55:11) That’s what the enemy wants, to the endgame of making sure the word never goes forth, and if it does, it doesn’t go forth in the intensity in which it was brought to you in the first place. So God says keep your armor on. (Ephesians 6:11) Wear all your spiritual armor.
He will reward your faithfulness, as you are partaking in the sufferings of Christ. So there is a reward waiting for you.
THE UNIQUENESS OF THE SILENT SEASON
Those I see in their silent season that haven’t gone forth yet, but they are in the cue, in training to one day go forth in delivering the word. God is giving you pictures, words, impartations and revelatory words to one day share or keep private until you meet the Lord. Don’t get discouraged in your silent season, because God is forming you. You are on the potter’s wheel so He can make you into the vessel He wants you to be. (Jeremiah 18:1-6) He’s allowing you to receive word after word to increase your confidence and be prepared to fully go forth in His time. The reason you receive a certain type of word is to emphasize which genre (dreams & visions prophet, end-time prophet, prophet to the nations, times and seasons prophets, governmental prophet, prophet to the marketplace, (local church) house prophet, judgment prophets) you’ll be in. Continue to stay faithful in keeping a good record of these things until you are prompted to share. The fact that you keep hearing words coming to you, is very, very good, because it means your hearing is on point, you’re attentive to Him and you are positioned properly to hear from Him. So stay faithful indeed! (Hebrews 10:35–36)
So the Lord has a unique Word for each prophet/prophetess and He wants His heart shared at the center of it. Though you may be a contemporary of other prophets in this season and we may be echoing similar things, the Word He has for you is given for you to deliver with His character tailor-made for the audience He previously had in mind for you. So if it’s altered at all due to your own presumption, it will not be received in the integrity with which it was originally gone forth. So continue to remain in his council and at your watchtower. For He watches over His Word and is faithful to His Word to perform it! Selah!
