Your Sons and Daughters Shall Prophesy: Prophesy on Commitment
By Betty Miller
The following prophetic words were given to Betty Miller by the Holy Spirit on December 23, 1989 which was shared with the local church. It was also printed in tract form and has been distributed for a number of years. We want our bible answers webpage to be a ministry to God’s people so we are including this word to help prepare for the remaining days ahead.
CHANGE – The 1990′s hold many changes. Change must come to the Body of Christ in order for revival to come in the earth. As changes are wrought within, changes shall be perceived without. The Church is going to take on a new look and the world will no longer mock her. They will either love and respect her or hate and fear her. This, however, will only come about after the Lord has done the work in His Bride, the church.
INCREASED PRAYER NEEDED – The Lord is calling and warning His people to heed His Word, His prophets and His ministers because the final call is coming soon and it will be too late for many who thought they could continue in their carnal life styles and just “add on Jesus.” God is emphasizing prayer, both personal and corporate. The Lord will be requiring of us to correct any faulty prayer habits. We must have regular, disciplined prayer lives. The “nickel-and-dime” prayers will no longer be accepted or sufficient to shield us from Satan’s onslaught. We must all partake in personal, family, and church prayer times. The Lord will lead us into spiritual warfare so that we may begin taking our promised land. Spiritual warfare is not to be considered an option, but a necessity.
TOTAL COMMITMENT – Christians who show up once on Sunday to pay their respects to God will be the first to suffer immense problems. Right behind them will be Christians who have been “lone rangers” and are not a part of any body. Those Christians who have depended on “TV Christianity” to replace the local church will find themselves in deep trouble also.
The Lord’s pattern for His church will be the only acceptable means of worship that He will bless. All substitutes for personal commitment to Christ and His local church will become apparent in people’s lives as they will suffer much loss without the support of other committed believers and God’s anointed five-fold ministers to guide and direct them.
Only those truly called of God will be in this five-fold ministry company as they must be obedient, true servants of His. The Lord will reject all others. All true servants of God will have the mark of humility and servant hood apparent in their lives. God’s true ministers will recognize one another’s callings and begin to link together to fulfill the great commission.
True unity will exist, as their focal point will be righteousness in Christ and His Word as the final authority on all issues. The Lord will give clarity and revelation to His true ministers and the Word of God will be understood in the light of this new revelation.
Many who are prideful will have a hard time laying down their own understanding of the Scriptures to accept the true doctrine of Christ, just as they did when the truth of speaking in tongues was revealed in the past move of God. The new revelation will not be extra-Biblical, but rather light upon Scripture not fully understood before.
And I heard but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Daniel 12:8-9
Ephesians 1:17-23 will be fulfilled in the Lord’s end-time church: “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened: that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of his glory of the inheritance of his saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.”
The Lord plans to loose His fulness of glory upon His body as they have come into maturity and purity. This will be a glorious hour for many, while others will suffer much.
OBEDIENCE and ACCOUNTABILITY – In the body of Christ, obedience and accountability will be stressed in the coming years, as the Lord continues to purge His Body. All that is not of God will become apparent to others, as sin will continue to be exposed. Failure to keep the Lord’s commands in our personal lives, homes, finances, etc. will be evidenced by the fruit and work coming forth in that area. The following scripture, 1 Corinthians 3:10-17, will come to pass in the coming years of Christian’s lives, as the 90′s will be the decade of judgement in our land:
According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he can build thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid which is Jesus Christ. Now is any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay & stubble; every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 1 Corinthians 3:10-17
