The Roar of Revolution – By Bobby Conner – September 12, 2016
What’s That Sound Coming Down! I’m not speaking about a song in the sixties! There is a rumble in the heavens releasing a sound! The sound you hear is the roar of revolution! The sound of an unsheathing of God’s Sword is vibrating throughout heaven and causing trembling in the earth.
A Fiery Fusion
There is coming a fiery fusion, joining of the generations, young and old! In a prophetic encounter I was shown God forging a yoke for the end-time harvest He was joining zeal (the youth) and wisdom (the senior saints) together as a yoke. They will be unstoppable.
Revolution of Unction For Function
A radical revolution that in many ways will redefine the way the modern day church has been defining Christianity. This coming move will be about action (see Mark 16:20). It was never the plan of God to establish the kingdom of God with mere words but with Christ’s centered works. Not just mere doctrine but God inspired deeds (see 1 Cor. 4:20).
There can be no revolution with contented people. So God has been busy fanning the flame of discontentment within the hearts of His people so we will not settle for less than He has for us. So what you feel brooding within your spirit is a Divine dissatisfaction. The seed bed for true revolution is dissatisfied people, reaching a place of radical reaction, responding to the lack of action. It’s high time to awake and arise (see Romans 13:11-14).
4 TRAITS OF HEALTHY PROPHETS & PROPHETIC MINISTRY-
Healthy prophetic ministry is vital for the advancement of the ekklesia in this hour. Prophets are first and foremost laid down lovers of King Jesus who find their validation in the presence of the King. They are ministers of prayer and intimacy. They are also highly gifted in the realm of revelation and must have some deep roots to avoid error. As prophets and prophetic people arise it is key that we teach and equip for success and longevity. The ability of the Prophet or prophetic minister to hear or see must be matched by these four traits:
1.Proven character & longevity: Matt. 7:20- “So then, you will know them by their fruits.
A prophetic mantle, or any mantle for that matter, is given freely as a gift. The character and maturity of the vessel will determine how effective that gift functions. There is a training and proving process that unfolds to prepare the person to carry all that God has called them to carry. We must not measure a prophetic ministry by accuracy or revelation alone as those things are part of a gift and not part of character. Paul admonished Timothy not to select a novice and exalt them into a place of ministry too quickly- (1 Tim. 3:6).
2.Love for the bride: Every gift must flow from a place of love for Jesus’ bride. Prophetic ministry often finds itself in a place of having to warn or rebuke but it should come from a deep well of love. Jesus corrects those whom He loves (Heb. 12:6). Prophetic correction is vital but it should never be done with a wrong attitude or heart. In fact, authentic prophetic ministry will often flow through tears as prophets feel the heart of The Lord for His people and grieve over them.
3.Humility—always putting focus back on Jesus. Prophets must have strong relationships with Apostles who are empowered to govern, guide and correct. The prophetic heart has to be rooted deep in humility. Pride and self exaltation are enemies of the prophetic. People will be quick to exalt a prophet who releases accurate words but he or she must contend for a mantle of servanthood and to put all eyes back on Jesus. Revelations 19:10- For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
4.Sound belief system: Prophets must be rooted in the word of God! They can not build a ministry on experiences alone. The Prophetic ministry is one of supernatural encounter, revelation and experience. It is vital that prophetic people become students of the word and align any prophetic revelation with the written word! 2 Peter 1:19- So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts.

6 POWER KEYS UNLOCKED BY PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT-
One of the great catalysts of transformation and progress in the life of a believer is praying in other tongues. When this is done consistently it kick starts our spiritual lives! Praying in The Spirit opens up deep wells of power and revelation. Here are the six power keys-
1)Builds a deep reservoir of abiding peace (Isaiah 28:11-12)
2)Releases The Master Teacher—the word is unfolded and revelation bursts forth (John 14:26)
3)Creates an inner guard against deception (1 John 2:26-27)
4)Builds faith (Jude 20)
5)Unravels spiritual mysteries (1 Cor. 14:2)
6)Releases inner rivers of refreshing, healing, strength & glory (John 7:37-38)
Rom. 8:26-27 AMP- So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance. And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God’s will. [Ps. 139:1, 2.]
“I want to talk with the utmost frankness and say to you, that tongues have been the making of my ministry. It is that peculiar communication with God when God reveals to my soul the truth I utter to you day by day in the ministry. Many times, I climb out of bed, take my pencil and pad, and jot down the beautiful things of God, the wonderful things of God that He talks out in my spirit and reveals to my heart.”
