Walls of Protection and Restoration
“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.” (1 Corinthians 12:7-11, NKJV)
Giving thanks to the Lord is a good thing, as it brings us into His presence. This helps us to acknowledge that all that we receive, all the good that flows from His heart, is out of His love, daily demonstrated through His grace and mercy continually extended to us.
The gifts of the Holy Spirit are part of that expression of His love, given to His people, believers in Jesus (Yeshua). These supernatural acts, shared among those who have accepted and walk in these gifts, are to build up, edify, and give growth to His Body here on earth.
One specific gift is that of prophecy. As Paul wrote to the Corinthians, quoted above, this is one of those manifestations of the Spirit given for the profit of all. Having myself received and given prophetic words, I truly appreciate this wonderful gift the Lord has for us who believe.
Those with this gift, sharing it among individuals and congregations, bring the Rhema word of the Lord among us today. Coupled with that already written in the Scriptures, not adding or subtracting to the eternal Word but further explaining the current move and actions of God Almighty, through Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit, we indeed are built up, encouraged, and given strength to pursue the Lord and His kingdom further.
We can be truly grateful for the men and women whom the Lord has raised up, through years of training and discipline, as they express that gift within them. Among the congregation of Antioch International Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina, Chuck Smith is a seasoned prophet and speaks the Word of the Lord with accurate and inspiring confidence.
On Sunday, March 24, 2019, he brought forth this word, which I thankfully share with you now, paraphrased. You can hear the exact recording below.
“Jesus wants us to know the season that we are in. He is building the right wall and tearing down the wrong wall. He is removing walls that have been erected. We have got to allow those walls to come down. Walls of unforgiveness, anger, and despair. Let them fall.
He is building around us walls of protection so we can grow into the call of God that He has for you. But you have got to come into the protective wall to be safe from outside harm.
Walls have been built by people who have left, and they carried something in their heart that shouldn’t be there. The Lord says there is going to be reunion in the coming days as He comes against those walls that don’t belong, that shouldn’t be erected. He is taking those down.
Forgiveness will bring about the reunion and a reuniting because the Lord says He has to have the right people together in the right for such a time as this, for there is going to be breakthrough in the heavenly realm, there is going to be supernatural ministry released out of this area.
The Lord says I have to bring back together a specific group of people. Watch as the Lord brings down these walls, in Jesus’ Name, and sets up the right wall.”
In one of my previous Now Think On This messages, which I wrote on March 9, 2019, entitled Pieces of the Puzzle, the Lord was also expressing His desire to bring back people together, to put in place each and every one of us, for His end-time purposes.
Listen to this recording of Chuck’s word, and be encouraged. Read also the words of Pieces of the Puzzle, and ask the Lord how He wants you to respond. You will be glad you do.
