Prayer Shield: Your Prophetic Rod of Promise will Bloom
I heard the Lord say in prayer that His anointing is coming alive to the faithful in this season, those who have dedicated themselves continually to the ministry of the Word and prayer will come into full blossom, it’s the Season of the Supernatural Bloom. I was shown in my spirit a rod with almond blossoms in full bloom. This spoke to me of the prophetic promises of God coming alive for those who have been faithful to the Word and worship. The almond tree is often referred to as the wakeful tree, it gets that name because it begins to blossom in January. It is the first of all the trees to wake up and touch the promise of Spring time. In the Bible, the almond tree is seen as a sign of God awakening His Word to perform it. Jeremiah the Prophet was shown in a vision an almond tree in full bloom. This is what the Lord spoke to him, “Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.” (Jeremiah 1:12) The Lord spoke to Jeremiah and said, you have seen correctly now watch me perform my Word! There is a rod of authority that is being handed to the faithful overcomer and a fresh anointing to govern nations coming upon those who have stayed true to the secret place of prayer and have refused to compromise the promise of God's Word. (Rev. 2:26-27) I heard the Lord say, "I am awakening their prophetic promises with a fragrance and watching over their words to perform them for the faithful. The prayers of the righteous will come in full bloom!" I see the authority and anointing will blossom and bloom as He brews a special fragrance in the Holy Place just for them. It is called The Atonement.
“And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant; And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercy seat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.” Hebrews 9:3-5.
The Lord told me to decree and declare over the Body of Christ that January and February will be months that God's prophetic promises will come into full bloom for them and the anointing of favor will be double upon them. The Lord says that there will be a sign of this word coming to pass. The Almond trees will bloom earlier then expected this year, watch and see. What we must understand is that God often uses broken things to release blessing. Do you feel like you were broken in this last season? It takes broken soil to produce a crop, broken clouds to give rain, broken grain to give bread, broken bread to give strength. It is the broken alabaster box that gives forth perfume. You are about to receive a DOUBLE blessing for the season of frustration, sorrow, brokenness and shame you have faced! The almond trees will bloom earlier then expected this year, watch and see.
I can hear the bees buzzing in the trees. The Lord says the bees will come early as well, as a sign that He is releasing angels on assignment to carry the fulfillment of the prayers of the saints. A scripture from Psalms leaped in my spirit as a now word for God's faithful servants, “You love justice and hate evil. Therefore, God, your God, has anointed you, pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.” Psalms 45:7
This word is for the entire Body of Christ, but for a moment I want to specifically speak over faithful Pastors of Churches across the land. I have been in prayer for many of you that I know personally and my heart is full for each and every one of you. God will make this word alive in your spirit as you watch it come to pass. I declare over Pastors and Leaders this is a season that your rod will blossom and the almonds will bloom (Numbers 17). Your house will be a house of prayer and praise. There is a visitation of glory that will become a habitation in your churches.
I see the Lord will weed out rebellion and witchcraft from among you and your testimony of faithfulness to the Kingdom will remain in the tabernacle of praise. I see the Lord adding to you fresh revelation and new miracle manifestations will spring up in your congregations. I see every negative word that has been spoken or written against you and your family is rendered powerless now. Every negative report issued against your health, wealth and home, I speak in Jesus mighty name will have no affect on your future. God placed the anointing to prosper on you long before your enemies tried to place a curse on you. I see you blessed in every area of your life in 2017, this will be your sweetest year yet! Ministers, don't let your mind lie to you, there is no expiration date on the prophetic promise over your life. Just let the Spirit lead you through the open door in this season. Your spirit has a memory of your future that your mind just can't comprehend.
