Description

Explain a prophet word

We model it in order to display what it looks like.

When people learn to recognize, test and receive the words, they begin to learn the operations of it.

This model actually equips the saints to have the ability of activation in prophecy.

  1. This word about restoration actually began a new season!

 

The Body of Christ is in the beginning stages of restoration.

Joel 2:25 AMP And I will restore or replace (NAS - make up to you) for you the years that the locust has eaten — the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you.

 

Restoration comes after heart change & repentance

Joel 2:12-13 AMP 12 Therefore also now, says the Lord, turn and keep on coming to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning [until every hindrance is removed and the broken fellowship is restored]. 13 Rend your hearts and not your garments and return to the Lord, your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness; and He revokes His sentence of evil [when His conditions are met].

Some have felt that hell has hit your life since coming to LFMC

  • This ministry is on an apostolic time table.

 

Restoration comes before His Spirit is poured out.

·         Joel 2:28 AMP And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.

  • His Spirit being poured out signifies power as in the book of Acts.
  • Holy Spirit told me not to leave Jerusalem until the power comes (1992).
  • Leaving Jerusalem is harvesting/evangelizing (go into all the world)...releasing who you are.

 

When the conditions are met.

Step 1 - * In the fall of 2014 we were going through another wave of trials, and out of my mouth I said, “My life is pain.”  The Lord stopped me and showed me that is all I had in my expectation and that I didn’t really trust in His promise to us.

 

Step 2 - *Right before I received this word of restoration on August 9th, I was feeling like something was very agitating in my spirit and knew there had to be a change coming.

He showed me the pain of the journey we had been on for these 24 years of rejection, betrayal, and then the onslaught of the broken but their demons attacking me and my family. I had felt overrun in many seasons...almost like one season would overlap the next one. This created wounds and pain in our personal lives as a whole in our family.  It felt in many areas that we had been ravaged by the enemy army.

Restoration Examples:

  • Peter – when you recover
  • Rich Ruler – Peter “We’ve left all”

Mark 10:28-31 NAS 28 Peter began to say to Him, "Behold, we have left everything and followed You." 29 Jesus said, "Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel's sake,  30 but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life.  31 "But many who are first will be last, and the last, first.

Cindy Jacobs word on restoration

Chuck Pierce word on restoration

  • "This is a time that I am ready to deal with your night terrors. For you are crying out through night terrors, even in your sleep.But this is going to be a time that I deliver you from the fear of the darkness that is around you. There is a deliverance coming out of night terrors this week, and that which has terrified you in the night – even in your subconscious – I am going to reveal it to you in the light.

"Many of you are saying that you can't hear Me, but that is because you are rehearsing in your own ear all your problems and all your ills. Listen to Me! I have something to say to you, and if you'd just listen to Me then I can put you on the right path.

"Focus on My horizon line so you know the destination that you're going to, and you know what I am painting around you. Focus on the horizon line so you're not surprised by the darkness that is in your frame, and you don't lose sight of the uncovering of the treasure that is already there. SEE differently! HEAR differently! Change your frame of reference so at the moment of your change a new event has been created for your future."

 

We can’t receive restoration in the future looking at our pasts.

  • Let go of the pain of the past
  • Let go of the loss of the past
  • Let go of the failure of the past
  • Let go of the lack of harvest in the previous time of sowing and growing

 

You have to completely disassociate yourself with your past pain.

  • We receive what we see
    • If all you see if pain you will never receive restoration.
