PROPHETIC MOTION  by Bill Burns

 

In order to fully understand God’s works in these days, we must examine the progression of God’s highest purposes.  The Lord is establishing His divine rule over those who had a desire to live more fully in His kingdom, and He will bring His people into divine order.

 

God’s order established in our lives will bring us into prophetic alignment.  The Spirit of the Lord has positioned us for prophetic motion, which will move us and reveal the pathway that will lead us into the fulfillment of our destiny.

 

The Trumpet I hear the Lord saying, "What do you see? Do you see the door that is before you? Have you positioned yourself by faith to access what I am providing? Walk the path before you, and you will find what I have prepared for you. You will not miss it for it is your greatest desire to go on with Me. I will walk the path of life with you and I will reveal to you the greatness of your destiny. I encourage you to go higher than you have been before. I will be the breath beneath your wings that will lift you into spiritual places that you have not yet seen. Come, and enjoy the journey."

 

The Pathway

 

God's path will lead to spiritual understanding of His purposes for each of us.  There will be designated places on this path that will become flash points of the glory of the Lord that will transform and enlighten the spirit of man.

 

Proverbs 20:27   The spirit of a man is the lamp of the LORD, searching all the inner depths of his heart.

 

This path will produce spiritual life to those who follow the Holy Spirit, who will lead us along the path.  And, He will reveal hidden mysteries as we go.

 

Psalm 16:11  You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

 

Isaiah 45:3   I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.

 

Prophetic Motion

 

The term, “prophetic motion”, was defined in a vision as being a time of spiritual movement, activity, advancement and acceleration.  In the vision I saw a giant wave coming towards us.  At first, I thought it was a wave of water, but as it came closer, I could see that it was not.  I saw what looked like a cloud of electrical impulses—lights that flashed back and forth through the cloud bringing colors of the rainbow into play.

 

I then understood that this was the glory of God coming to His people as described in Habakkuk 3:3-4:  “God came from Teman, The Holy One from Mount Paran. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise.  His brightness was like the light; He had rays flashing from His hand, and there His power was hidden.”

 

As I watched this cloud of glory come to the people who had been aligned with the spiritual doors prepared for them.  They were patiently waiting to enter, but were unsure of themselves.  Then, the glory of God came upon them and provided the “prophetic motion” that was required for movement through the door and onto the path that provided spiritual life.

 

Thus, the spiritual journey begins.  The path leads us up the mountain of God.  We will go higher than ever before.  It will be a time of spiritual elevation for those who follow the path of life. 

 

Psalm 145:11  They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, and talk of Your power. 

 

We will be enabled by the Holy Spirit to go higher into realms of the Spirit.  If we are to know God more completely, then we must go higher.

 

Isaiah 55:9  "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”

 

The cry of our hearts will be:

 

Psalm 25:4-5   Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.  Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.

 

Wings symbolize spiritual elevation:

 

1.  God’s Wings—His Covering

Psalm 61:4  I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.

 

2.  The Eagle—represents prophetic vision, identified in Revelation 4:7 as a flying eagle.

 

3.  The Dove—power of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 3:16   When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.

 

Acts 1:8  "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."

 

4.      Angels—angelic help and protection.

Ezekiel 1:24  When they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of many waters, like the voice of the Almighty, a tumult like the noise of an army; and when they stood still, they let down their wings.

 

5.      God’s People—going higher.

Isaiah 40:31  But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

 

Mount up; purpose to go higher than you ever have before.  It is time for elevation.

 

Small Straws:  This is the beginning of a time of elevation when you will need to set your sights on higher ground.  If you will activate your faith in this direction your access to spiritual revelation and growth will be amazing.  You must, however, make a deliberate decision to receive the greatest benefit of this season, says the Lord.  Isaiah 49:11 I will make each of My mountains a road, and My highways shall be elevated.

 

Maintain Momentum:  The glory of God will give us a spiritual push into this season, but it will be up to us to maintain momentum.  Momentum is defined as the strength or force that something has when it is moving.  It allows something to continue or grow stronger or faster as time passes.

 

The Trumpet:  And, the Lord says, "If you will do that which is written in My Word, then you will indeed receive the benefits of the kingdom of God that I have in store for you.  My goodness is about to come in unique and powerful ways. But, let it be known to your spirit that I can give to you abundantly and exceedingly above all that you can imagine, think or believe. Expect My goodness to come. Embrace it today and receive it."

 

If we will do the work of maintaining spiritual momentum, God will bless us.

 

Ephesians 3:20-21  Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.

 

Spiritual Vitality

 

Many of God’s people will learn in this season how to access spiritual vitality that will strengthen their bodies.  Divine health will become a new reality to those who learn to abide in the presence of the Holy Spirit.

 

Romans 8:11  But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

 

The Holy Spirit will give spiritual life by quickening your body with spiritual power that will invigorate you so that divine healing will flow.  Spending time in the presence of the One who has the gift of healing (1 Corinthians 12:9) will bring the “times of refreshing” that is needed by the body of Christ.
