Taken from The Trumpet Call Bulletin
by Doug Fortune
A drastic change in the spiritual climate is about to occur. All that has been stored up is about to overflow… the heavens shall pour forth! The prayers, the intercession, the supplication that has risen before Me as incense, shall overflow. The wrath of My justice and righteous holiness shall overflow. All that which has held back this overflow shall be brought down. For this is My day… I am coming as LORD of hosts and I shall see My will accomplished.
For a time I have held back and stayed My hand… now I shall cry out as a woman in travail, and this cry shall topple kingdoms and hew down those thought to be mighty. The great and terrible Day of the Lord is at hand! And what is the trumpet sounding in the land, it is the shout of “Prepare ye the way of the Lord!” For those whose eyes are lifted and looking, and whose hearts are prepared with repentance and humility, it shall be the culmination and outpouring of the prayers of the ages, resulting in the greatest spiritual outpouring known to man. These shall be the days the prophets of old longed for and prophesied of.
There shall also be a great outpouring of My wrath upon those who have rebelled against Me, for I shall harden their hearts and turn them over to their reprobate minds. Did I not say that “Darkness will cover the earth, and gross darkness the people?” I will allow a spiritual darkness that is so pervasive and intense that the efforts of man will have no effect upon it. However, My glory shall also be rising upon a people who have humbled themselves in prayers, fastings, repentance and humility. These shall walk in a spiritual authority that has not been known to man because the unanswered prayers of the ages and injustices suffered for ages shall suddenly overflow in recompense.
Lift up your eyes for the day is coming and the bride must make herself ready! I ask you, will you be ready or will you be found wanting? Will you be among those upon which My glory is rising as a covering of authority and power?… or will you be among those to whom My glory is a burning inferno of judgment? Search your heart… search your ways… search your words… remove the leaven while there is time, for the day is approaching when I shall shut the door that no man can open… and woe unto those who are unprepared!
What Is Prophecy?
By Betty Miller
As some may not be familiar with prophecy in the church, we want to share this short explanation of Biblical prophecy before we share an actual prophecy from God.
First, what is godly prophecy? It can be summed up as words that are spoken on behalf of God. A prophet or prophetess is one who is a spokesman for God. It is a divine utterance that comes from the Holy Spirit. (Note: Just as there are prophetic words from God, there are also false prophecies that the Lord warned us about in the Bible. In Matthew 7:15-16 Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits–.” We must prove the source of prophecy before accepting it as coming from the Lord). God is raising up many prophetic voices in the earth today. His gifts of prophecy are basically of two types. One is the “simple gift of prophecy” which every believer can express under the unction or direction of the Holy Spirit after they have been filled with the Holy Ghost.
The other is the “office gift” of the spirit which is given to a prophet or prophetess who is called to the “five-fold” ministry office as outlined in 1 Corinthians 12:28 which says “And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.” Also Ephesians 4:11-12 which says” 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.”
The basic difference between these two types is, the simple gift of prophecy is given to all spirit filled believers as spoken of in 1 Corinthians 14:31, “For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.” It is for the purpose of edification, exhortation and comfort as spoken of in 1 Corinthians 14:3, “But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.”
The “office gift” of a prophet or prophetess is given to speak to the body of Christ at large. The ministers who are called to the office of a prophet or prophetess will deliver messages also which include edification, exhortation and comfort but their messages can also be directive in nature and futuristic in content as well (Ephesians 4:11-15).
Presently God is leading His people with prophetic preaching and teaching. A prophetic movement is taking place in the world.
