Prophetic Insight BEFORE the Prophetic Word: What does Father’s Scribal Order look like? It looks like an APOSTOLIC REALIGNMENT!
In the first part of this prophetic word, the Lord rebuked his scribes for becoming lone rangers in their ministry and stepping away from His scribal order which is to serve in the body - undergirding the ministry of God sent leaders in the church and strengthening the ministry of the Gospel outside the church according to Numbers 11 and 1 Peter 4:10 . Before reading this part of the prophecy, please take a few minutes to review the first part of this prophecy either above or to your left if you have not read it.
In this, the Lord began speaking to me about the realigning of the scribe with the Apostle and Prophet in this season at a greater level. Father said that the scribes HE has raised up are integral in recording and publishing the continued acts of the Apostles; and carrying forth the Word of His Prophets during this current move. In fact, He is RESTORING the order of the scribe as it existed in the time of the APOSTLES – where they walked side-by-side recording every word spoken, and every move of the Spirit. For example, the scribes made sure: (1) the miracles and message of Jesus was recorded, published and preserved; (2) the acts and words of the apostles were recorded, published and preserved; (3) the work of the early church was documented; (4) the moves of Holy Spirit in the people and in the earth was documented; and (5) that the moves and work of the Spirit through to organize the church was recorded, published and preserved. Somehow, the ministry of the scribe has gotten “off task” and “world focused.”
By world-focused, Father began showing me some of these things that needed correcting. He pointed out that:
- Scribes are focusing on book publishing from a completely carnal perspective;
- Scribes are focusing on marketing and promoting books and messages to men;
- Scribes are looking to profit from their books and the launching of their ministries;
- Scribes are focusing on self-indulgence, success and fame verse body collaboration, true brotherhood and fellowship;
- Scribes are focusing excessively on recording and publishing their own journey verses the journey of the church, and that of the martyrs and pioneers;
- Scribes have abandoned documenting the work of the church in their own congregations;
- Scribes have abandoned documenting the move of the spirit in their own communities;
- Scribes have abandoned documenting the moves of Holy Spirit in the earth in their communities, cities, counties and states;
- Scribes have abandoned their service to the church in the ministry of administration;
- Scribes have abandoned the collective message of the gospel to pursue causes, and other projects of self interest and self promotion; and
- Scribes have abandoned godly apprenticeship and the gathering of Holy scribal councils to hear direction from the Lord; instead, they’ve taken up residence with compromising Christians in communal groups pushing worldly concepts for self glory.
It’s as if everything and everyone in the lives of some scribes have become greater than God. This is tough to say! Lord knows I didn’t want to write this message – or teach on it. Yes, there are some positive things scribes are doing, but THIS SPECIFIC WORD is targeting the need for apostolic realignment with the church. It is a press as the APOSTOLIC THRUST is realigned with the body in this season. If apostolic reformation is to take place then transformation must begin on all levels of governmental administration in God’s house on earth.
This is a difficult teaching for those who believe they KNOW what God has called them to do. The remnant is being awakened, and the offices in the House of the Lord that have lured away from the sanctuary by idolatry are being restored. The army is being re-assimilated. (For more revelation on the scribal army, please review the 2009 & 2010 Prophetic Word: God’s Uncompromising Army & The Flying Scroll Moving Across the Earth. It was difficult for me to write this when I first received it. Not because of fear, but because of the conviction in my soul; but I tell you, WE CANNOT COLLECTIVELY OR INDIVIDUALLY MISS THIS PRESENT MOVE OF THE SPIRIT! Scribes! Please hear this cry!
The bottom line to everything we do will always end with the answers to these questions: “Am I fulfilling Matthew 28:18-20 through every element of my service to the Kingdom? Am I an AMBASSADOR of Jesus Christ above all else and a minister of RECONCILIATION in all my doing? Are my motives RIGHT?”
Now, I know I said a mouthful in this list. But on the VOC IMMERSION Mentoring Calls we will be walking through these areas for clarity and understanding strictly from the Word and with Father’s original purpose and intent for Scribes of the King in mind. In this list, I am not saying that all of these things are not of God. I am prophesying that WE NEED PERSPECTIVE. I am prophesying that this reordering must take place so that we can get PERSPECTIVE. I am prophesying that the focus of what Father intended has been perverted, and God’s ministry for His scribe has turned into a commercialized industry in which Jesus is no longer the focus. I am prophesying that he is RESTORING the remnant FORWARD into a place of order. He is RESTORING the Order of Scribes in the earth.
Father is moving scribes of the King (especially his prophetic scribes) AWAY from the world system, and back into fellowship with His vision for reconciliation through the message of Jesus Christ. As you read through this prophetic word, please note that the Lord spoke to me directly through the scriptures. Instead of saying, “Thus saith the Lord,” I am literally walking you through the revelation Father released as I dug into the scriptures he directed me to. Father, I pray that understanding comes by Holy Spirit into the hearts of those assigned to this message in Jesus Name.
THE PROPHECY: Jeremiah 36 : 1 In the fourth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, this word came to Jeremiah from the LORD: 2 "Take a scroll and write on it all the words I have spoken to you concerning Israel, Judah and all the other nations from the time I began speaking to you in the reign of Josiah till now.
Prophetic Word: The Lord is calling His scribes to take their scroll and write on it all the Words spoken by His TRUE Apostles and Prophets whom they are assigned to in this season. The Lord is requiring his scribes to attune their ears to the move Holy Spirit in the earth – capturing those nuggets from Heaven that will propel the ministry of the Gospel, and leave an EDIBLE legacy in the earth for the generations to come. They will take their scrolls and write on them all the words the Lord has spoken; and all the works that have been done by Him in and for their families, neighborhoods, cities, counties, states and nation. Get ready to declare the future and write history! Prophet! I tell you they will preserve and secure the things of Heaven in the earth; and release the things of earth that are already bound in Heaven! This restructuring or reordering will restore the scribe to his/her foundations in congregations and cities around the world. Like the scribes of old, they will walk closely with Father’s Apostles and Prophets as this restoration takes place.
3Perhaps when the people of Judah hear about every disaster I plan to inflict on them, each of them will turn from his wicked way; then I will forgive their wickedness and their sin."
This scribal cry at the hand of the APOSTLE & PROPHET will prove God. These pens will speak of Father’s justice and righteousness in the earth. The pens will cry for repentance; and for people to turn from their wicked ways and return to the Father. These pens will serve as a witness to the counsel, power and might of the Lord!
4 So Jeremiah called Baruch son of Neriah, and while Jeremiah dictated all the words the LORD had spoken to him, Baruch wrote them on the scroll. 5 Then Jeremiah told Baruch, "I am restricted; I cannot go to the LORD's temple. 6 So you go to the house of the LORD on a day of fasting and read to the people from the scroll the words of the LORD that you wrote as I dictated.
I saw three things taking place here. I saw many APOSTLES & PROPHETS writing at their own hand in one instance, and in another I saw some APOSTLES & PROPHETS calling forth scribes to write for them. These called scribes served in the same capacity as Baruch. They were called to sit at the feet of the Apostles and Prophets as Father unveiled his battle plans, orders of restructuring and plans for reconciling the nations.
I heard this audibly: I am raising the mantle of some PROPHETS who are also scribes among my people to sound an alarm and awaken the people. I am placing specific directives before them to write and then sending them forth with their pens AND their mouths. I also saw Apostles writing. Father showed me that many of them would begin giving prophetic directives to the prophet and to scribe concerning what to record and what to leave out.
Father also tuned my ears to the move of scribal order inside churches. He said he would raise up scribes to record miracles, signs, wonders and prophetic demonstrations taking place in their congregations. They will serve as heralds, drenched in my spirit, on behalf of these pastoral spokesmen. They will stand with the order of the house in my Kingdom, and do all that is commanded of them. Father said: I am RESTORING MY ORDER to scribal ministry.
7Read them to all the people of Judah who come in from their towns. 7Perhaps they will bring their petition before the LORD, and each will turn from his wicked ways, for the anger and wrath pronounced against this people by the LORD are great."
Father is charging scribes in this season to PUBLISH His word – not just the word they hear, but the words they record, the acts they’ve recorded, the things they’ve made notes of at the hands of those who’ve sent them in the name of the Lord. No longer will writing be enough. The scribes themselves will serve as carriers of that word wherever they go urging those listening to hear the voice of the Lord, and if necessary to repent. Father said: I will send you into cities and towns to read all the things I have commanded you to write. They have risen! I have called them forth! You will know them when they come! You will recognize the call.
8Baruch son of Neriah did everything Jeremiah the prophet told him to do; at the LORD's temple he read the words of the LORD from the scroll. 9 In the ninth month of the fifth year of Jehoiakim son of Josiah king of Judah, a time of fasting before the LORD was proclaimed for all the people in Jerusalem and those who had come from the towns of Judah. 10 From the room of Gemariah son of Shaphan the secretary, which was in the upper courtyard at the entrance of the New Gate of the temple, Baruch read to all the people at the LORD's temple the words of Jeremiah from the scroll.
Father began revealing that there are obedient scribes in this remnant. They will do everything that He has commanded of them. They will serve as catalysts in this season to GATHER THE SCRIBES and meet in HIS CHAMBER to discuss Kingdom affairs. I kept hearing Father say, “The Chamber of the Scribe.... I am restoring the Chamber of the Scribe…”
I began seeing APOSTLES, PROPHETS & SCRIBES gathering in pockets world-wide discussing Kingdom affairs from an APOSTOLIC perspective. I saw APOSTLES & PROPHETS, some scribal, leading these groups, encouraging, directing and imparting into them. They were literally engrossed in understanding how to publish Heaven’s mysteries and secrets. Even typing this, I am overwhelmed by His presence…
11When Micaiah son of Gemariah, the son of Shaphan, heard all the words of the LORD from the scroll, 12 he went down to the secretary's room (also called the Chamber of the Scribe) in the royal palace, where all the officials were sitting: Elishama the secretary, Delaiah son of Shemaiah, Elnathan son of Acbor, Gemariah son of Shaphan, Zedekiah son of Hananiah, and all the other officials.
In this, Father was showing me how his scribes would connect with one another. I was seeing them coming together for the “Word’s sake” and not just for their own sake. They were gathering in the Chamber of the Scribe with key officials like above.
I heard Father say: “When my people gather to HEAR “MY” words and LISTEN, I will give them increased understanding, counsel, revelation and strategy. Yes, they will gather to understand these words that I, the Lord your God have spoken, and will swiftly bring them to pass.”
13 After Micaiah told them everything he had heard Baruch read to the people from the scroll, 14 all the officials sent Jehudi son of Nethaniah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Cushi, to say to Baruch, "Bring the scroll from which you have read to the people and come." So Baruch son of Neriah went to them with the scroll in his hand. 15 They said to him, "Sit down, please, and read it to us." So Baruch read it to them. 16 When they heard all these words, they looked at each other in fear and said to Baruch, "We must report all these words to the king."
We must take HEED to what we write and what we release like never before. These words WILL BE REPEATED. Father, however, wants us to REPEAT HIS WORDS to HIS PEOPLE. We must be in a position to have ANSWERS when those assigned to us come SEARCHING for a word from the Lord! WHEN WE ALLOW FATHER to re-order us, the FEAR OF THE LORD WILL BE RESTORED.
You see, Father was showing me that this restructuring, this re-ordering will bring necessary alignment and confirmation to the body. He was showing me that we WILL BE A CATALYST FOR RESTORING HIS FEAR! As the Word goes forth and people begin to see these things that have been recorded and repeated come to pass, many WILL BELIEVE. Many will have their faith restored, their belief restored and their FEAR restored in the Lord. I saw how the DIVISION that currently exists among scribes has caused great confusion much like it did in the days of Moses and Jesus; but I also saw the power that will RISE when the order is restored under the hand of God. Father said this to me: This alignment will take place in PRAYER. It will take place when the scribes seek my will concerning their directives where they are planted.
The last thing I heard from Father on this particular Word was this: It’s time to arise to the purpose and intent to which we were called. The FIRST ministry of the scribe is that of a teacher – an interpreter of the word. The SECOND ministry of the scribe is that of PROTECTOR – guarding the Word of God from corruption.
