Prophecy: How You Can Begin Hearing Sound Bites from Heaven

Posted by

Recently the Lord has had me in a rest season. It’s a season where I’ve been developing less content for things like full length articles, but where I’m getting more of what I think of as “heavenly sound bites.”

It’s almost like I’m eavesdropping or overhearing parts of conversations from heaven about aspects of everyday life, as well as how God views human existence in general.

One definition of a sound bite I found explains that a sound bite is a short clip of audio extracted from a larger file that’s used to summarize a longer piece—often used to entice the listener to learn more. That’s true for the examples of heavenly sound bites I want to share with you.

Some Examples

Here are four examples of sound bites I’ve heard recently to give you an idea of what I’m talking about.

1. The first one I heard was in the first person. I don’t know if you ever hear the Lord like this, but I sometimes do. In other words, it’s like I’m saying something, but I know it’s not me—it’s a divine thought, or a thought inspired by the Lord. I was simply standing at the sink in my bathroom early one morning, and a clear thought suddenly ran through my mind. It was: “Every day is precious, because it brings me one day closer to going home to be with Jesus.”

I literally went, “Whoa, what was that again?” That is absolutely profound. I thought of checking days off on a large calendar with an “x” or something, and yet also contained in that thought is that despite our longing for heaven, we should regard each day on earth as precious because He has given it to us.

2. The second one came when I had an Elijah day. Like when he ran from Jezebel and hid and complained to the Lord that he was the only prophet left that hadn’t bowed down to Baal (1 Kings 19). As I was lying in bed that night before going to sleep, I asked the Lord if He was going to keep using me, or if for some reason I wouldn’t be continuing to do His work anymore.

I’m being really transparent here—I was having kind of a low moment, in that it’s not easy for me to rest or not write, podcast or minister as much. I am still doing stuff, just not maybe as much as in the previous season. I was recently invited to speak at a conference in a neighboring state, for example, that went really well—stuff like that—but you know, we all have those days.

Towards morning I had a dream. I saw some people who were working (ministering) for the Lord. It’s like there were three groups. The first group was made up of people who only ministered for a very short time. Then they just fell away and were done, or gone.

The second group of people ministered and worked for the Lord for approximately six years. Then they were just done, or gone.

The third group of people work for Him forever. Then there was a pause, and even within the dream I was kind of holding my breath, thinking, “Which group am I?” Then I heard, “Doing His work forever.” I can’t tell you how much hearing that blessed me, for so many reasons.
