Prophetic Revivalist Reveals How to Properly Align Yourself with the Father

We must be in one accord, in unity and begin to speak life to dead places. The prosperity realm comes through the portal of life and is made possible by Jesus’s death, resurrection, and ascension. That’s the truth.

We as the body are called to lead the earth in the direction the Lord desires for His return. We do have hope. We are not cut off from our Savior, Jesus. He does rule. He does reign. We are part of the kingdom. We do have a responsibility to prophesy and to pray to all dead environments in Jesus’ name.

In Ezekiel 37:12 the Word says, “Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.” Today this means that God brought us back to Him when Jesus died, resurrected, and ascended. We can go to a deeper understanding of this as we actively tap into portals of life that bring the heart of the Father into our hearts, homes, neighborhoods, and nations through repentance and confession. These blessings are already ours because of the resurrection and ascension, but we must activate what is ours by faith, by seeing things as Jesus does. Kingdom structure is about tapping into heavenly portals to release God’s glory on earth.

Then the Lord told Ezekiel: “The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand” (Ezek. 37:15-17).

In other words, God is saying, “Whatever has been divided will now become one.” When the body of Christ is not in alignment, it causes division, which creates confusion. Whatever is dry creates confusion and division, but whatever is brought together as one family can stand.

In verses 21–27, God tells Ezekiel (and I’m paraphrasing): “I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one King over all of them, and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms. They will no longer defile themselves with their idols and vile images or with any of their offenses for, I will save them from all their sinful backsliding, and I will cleanse them. They will be my people, and I will be their God. Jesus is from the line of King David, so this is God calling all nations unto Himself in Jesus under the one true living God.” Two scriptures that share this truth are:

“The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne” (Ps. 132:11).

“I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah” (Ps. 89:3-4).

It’s interesting how the Lord tells Ezekiel the two nations will become one: when they get rid of all their graven images, their sin, and the various things representing death that they think are okay. The Bible says, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isa. 5:20). When people think that evil is good, it’s dangerous. Some things are wrong because they don’t match up with the Father and who He is. We can’t redefine them as good just because that’s the way our culture wants us to see them.

We are created in the image of God. Therefore we should only do what our Father is doing and see what our Father is seeing. God is life, and our image is life. It is hard to prophesy if we see evil as good because that means we see with earthly eyes. Yet, we are called to prophesy from eternal life, a sacred space in heavenly places. You don’t prophesy what you see from an earth perspective because that has no power. You are just telling what is going on in the natural, present moment, which is dead anyway. It’s not what God sees.

Ask God right now to purify you so that you can see as He sees, which will be a view from holiness, righteousness, and life. Repent of any known areas of sin and ask Him for forgiveness. Ask Him to show you from a heavenly perspective what He sees about your situation. We often can’t see as He sees until we cleanse ourselves of impurities and sin. {eoa}
