Sometimes a prophetic word has to die. Every hope of that word coming to pass, every hint of possibility must be exhausted before its season can dawn. Every seed I’ve planted in my garden soil this month, was dead. As every farmer and gardener does, I purchased dead seeds in faith, believing. Likewise, you have “purchased” or bought into a word of promise. Upon hearing the word, faith arose in your heart, allowing you to purchase it for future manifestation. At that point, the word is nothing more than a seed of potential. It must endure the process of death and burial before it can become a living word in you.
At the time of sowing, a seed is not even worth eating. Seemingly worthless to the naked eye, this seed holds innumerable, unleashed possibilities. When it’s fully dead, that’s precisely the moment to plant a seed, by burying it in the soil of the heart. That divine idea you’ve bought into, must now be hidden in your heart. Most divine seeds never make it this far. They lie on the shelf in the garage, or in the kitchen catch-all drawer, never reaching their destination. Believe in your dead seeds, enough to sow them back into your own heart. Revisit those packets of seed (journals, notebooks, cd’s, etc…). Cast your seeds by rehearsing them aloud and they will sink deep into your heart of hearts. Since your seed is of a supernatural nature, it will take supernatural stimulus to awaken it. There’s nothing more supernatural than the Word of God and spirit-induced worship. The more you read the supernatural stories recorded in scripture, the more active your worship life will become. These two very simple but supernatural practices will water and fertilize your seed, hastening the sprouts! Remember, the things of the Kingdom must be simple in practice and practical in application. You can do this. You can. Your supernatural seed does not respond to soulish stimulus. Many have attempted to awaken their seed by willing it to pass, or calling on the arm of flesh. Our best-laid plans and resources are incapable of bringing divine seed to life. Nothing but total devotion and focus on Christ will crack the shell that encases your new life.
Prophetic Words Are Being Resurrected
The Lord spoke clearly to me on Sunday evening, May 6. He said, “I’m resurrecting dead prophetic words!” The words of Christ flooded my thoughts, “I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life,“ John 12:24-25. This He spoke of His very death, burial and resurrection. He is the Word made Flesh, the embodiment of all we believe! Just the same, the word cannot live in your flesh, until you are willing to see it first dead and buried. Be willing to lose first, in order to gain.
Expect the following to happen in the coming days:
- You will be drawn to old prophetic words that have not been fulfilled.
- You will begin hearing other prophets declare things you heard long ago.
- The Lord will begin placing you in assignments reminiscent of a prior season of your life.
- Echoes of past prophetic words will come to you through various outlets (media and print).
- Others will remind you of things you had forgotten.
- There will be new wind on old prophetic imagery that once spoke to you.
- If you are in ministry, the Lord will enliven the promises that birthed your ministry. Visit those early words.
- You will move beyond hope to expectation. Your thoughts will be flooded with confidence of the fulfillment of prior promises.
Resurrection is possible, now, because many things have died in your life. Without waxing morose, let us agree that it has been a season of great loss. This pruning had to happen for the life of your promise! Because of your losses, you are now in position for resurrection! Say goodbye. Mourn no more. Get ready to rejoice as the day of resurrection has now dawned upon your life.
So your prophetic word has died, has it? Congratulations! You can now receive your word in the process you were destined to walk.
