Very striking for over a year has been the SILENCE OF THE LORD speaking through His prophets. It is not that He has little say, His Word is freely available to us through Holy Scripture. As well by His Spirit He kindly and continually accompanies us, freely speaking to our hearts,
But public utterance at His behest has been rare this past year. I BELIEVE HE IS NOT SPEAKING MUCH PUBLICLY IN PART BECAUSE HE HAS ALREADY SAID SO MUCH. IT IS TIME FOR PEOPLE TO READ AND CHEW ON WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN SPOKEN.
Nevertheless, it is not as if people now will actually review His past words. They aren't typically valued enough that people hold on to them to ponder. Also, so much verbiage is put forth in His Name, that the WORDS THAT QUICKEN AND PIERCE AS A SWORD may be overlooked and the prophet messenger valued above the LORD'S TRUE MESSAGE. So famous "prophets" are "heard;" the now silent ones who spouted His words -- as it were to empty stadiums -- now have about the same degree of reception! (hah!)
As well, the prophets themselves have been going through major overhaul at His behest. As they come out the other end of these rigors, a new crop of thriving plants -- a new fleet of high tech vessels -- a new brand of soaring rockets -- will emerge declaring "You haven't seen anything yet!" "Therefore with joy you shall draw water from the wells of salvation, and in that day shall you say, 'Praise the LORD...."
It has abeen a WONDERFUL SILENCE. And it jolts me a bit that the LORD of HOSTS would speak even now: but I do sense to share the following caution:
A WORD OF CAUTION
"Many prophets do not KNOW what they are speaking. I quicken My Word to them or speak some words to their hearts and they interpret it wrongly with their natural minds and then speak it forth or interpret it to others wrongly."
I [Dr. Carol] notice this is a pretty common occcurence. People hear something from the LORD, and them assume it means what they think it does, -- and it doesn't.
In the days ahead, ask the prophets to share with you WHAT GOD ACTUALLY SAID TO THEM. Then prayerfully consider WHAT HE IS TELLING YOU through His messenger.
