Weighing Shepherd’s Hearts | Prophetic Word |

Over the past month there has been an increase in dreams concerning the very subject Holy Spirit is using me to speak on down below. The dreams have included specific ministries that need to take heed of this word and repent. Here is the dream the Lord is asking me to share with you today: I was in an old red wooden barn, I noticed at the top there was an opening up to heaven. The Holy Spirit then brought my attention to a VERY LARGE scale hanging from the rafters. I then asked Him “how will this survive the storms that are coming?” After praying asking what all this meant, wisdom when to speak and who to speak it to, this is what he spoke to me to share with the Corporate Body of Christ, today.

The Lord is weighing the hearts of many churches that are acting as storehouse for their own greed rather than truly feeding and caring for His sheep. Many will not be able to withstand the storms that are on the horizon. This is a call for those to LEAVE the quick fix mentality in ministry and what is not doctrinally sound.

+Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel. Prophesy, and say to them, ‘This is what the Lord God says to the shepherds: Woe to the shepherds of Israel, who have been feeding themselves! Shouldn’t the shepherds feed their flock? You eat the fat, wear the wool, and butcher the fattened animals, but you do not tend the flock. You have not strengthened the weak, healed the sick, bandaged the injured, brought back the strays, or sought the lost. Instead, you have ruled them with violence and cruelty. They were scattered for lack of a shepherd; they became food for all the wild animals when they were scattered. My flock went astray on all the mountains and every high hill. My flock was scattered over the whole face of the earth, and there was no one searching or seeking for them. “‘Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord. As I live—this is the declaration of the Lord God—because my flock, lacking a shepherd, has become prey and food for every wild animal, and because my shepherds do not search for my flock, and because the shepherds feed themselves rather than my flock, therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord! “‘This is what the Lord God says: Look, I am against the shepherds. I will demand my flock from them and prevent them from shepherding the flock. The shepherds will no longer feed themselves, for I will rescue my flock from their mouths so that they will not be food for them. -Ezekiel 34:2-10 CSB

+All you animals of the field and forest, come and eat! Israel’s watchmen are blind, all of them, they know nothing; all of them are mute dogs, they cannot bark; they dream, lie down, and love to sleep. These dogs have fierce appetites; they never have enough. And they are shepherds who have no discernment; all of them turn to their own way, every last one for his own profit. “Come, let me get some wine, let’s guzzle some beer; and tomorrow will be like today, only far better! -Isaiah 56:9-12 CSB

+Shepherd God’s flock among you, not overseeing out of compulsion but willingly, as God would have you; not out of greed for money but eagerly; -1 Peter 5:2 CSB

+For we do not market the word of God for profit like so many. On the contrary, we speak with sincerity in Christ, as from God and before God. -2 Corinthians 2:17 CSB

Sadly Mistaken: The Truth About God’s Love Despite Our Mess

We make mistakes, every single one of us. Sometimes, we even chose to do the wrong thing and feel regret later. I’ve done the wrong thing more than I am happy to say. What does God have to say about these mistakes?

Oftentimes, we feel the pain of our decisions later. It could be instant, hours, days, or even years. But no matter the mistake or decisions that I have made, Jesus met me with his grace.

“Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.”
Psalms 37:24 NLT

We serve a God who loves unconditionally because that is who he is, love. He does not base his love upon how many times we have missed the mark or how many times we have done something amazing for the Kingdom. He just loves us because he is love.

One of the biggest truths that has been revealed to me is that nothing is too big for grace or mercy. No mistake or chosen wrongful action can outweigh the decision he made for us over 2000 years ago on that cross. When we had nothing to give, he still chose us. He loves us that much.

Do not hold yourself to contempt when Jesus calls you forgiven. The enemy loves to try to keep us tied down in the lies of failure, fear, and condemnation. But the beautiful thing is that everytime the devil feeds us a lie, Jesus died to reveal the truth and set us free.

Today, you and I stand together not wound up in past regret and condemnation or worry about the time we have missed the mark. We kneel together before the cross thankful for Jesus who has set us free and is working everything out for our good. We praise together his Holy Name in thankfulness that his love is not based upon performance but based upon who he is, love. Nothing can separate us from his love. Nothing.
