Just wrote this fresh revelation - Fresh Bread. Keep praying for us. We've been through some things and have seen some miracles. Believing for many more on the way. Praying also that God would hugely bless each person who has chosen to join us in any way in this ministry for His Kingdom.
I saw many angels scurrying around, excitedly building a new platform. They were building it out in the public square, where people came daily to do business and meet other people. This platform had a high sign at the back of it that read, “JESUS IS LORD.” The platform was being built for a new wave of Christian leaders that loved God passionately, and were not into ministry for personal gain or favor. They were the young and the old, including former rebels and misfits, who had found purpose and belonging in the family of God.
Right now, I hear the Holy Spirit saying, “Do not despise the testimony of former drug addicts, sexual perverts and entertainers. Do not discount political enemies who have come to know My love and power. I have promised that I would show you things that you’ve never known before, if you called on Me. I am about to release a wave of new things and your hearts will be overwhelmed with the changes that are coming. I will not stop with changes and new things, however.
“I will double down on exposing wickedness wherever it exists, whether in government, business, entertainment or even in the church. Be ready to cooperate with Me and listen to My voice, for I will surprise even some of my most faithful friends with my wisdom and direction. I have not turned a deaf ear to any of your prayers. I have delayed some answers, in order to create a greater tidal wave of My glory that will come on the land, both in the United States of America, and in every other country, where people have been calling on My name for My intervention and mercy.”
THE HOUSE OF BREAD
In reading the Book of Ruth again, the Holy Spirit highlighted the fact that Naomi and her family left Bethlehem because of famine. Bethlehem simply means the House of Bread. They left the House of Bread because the supply of bread had ceased there. Their stomachs were empty. They had to go elsewhere to survive.
The church has always been called on to provide the Bread of Life to the members of the body of Christ. Sadly, many churches, movements and denominations have forsaken the Bread of Life and offered nothing but artificial religious ingredients, or “Fake Bread.” As a result, there has been an exodus from the church of millions of people, especially among our younger generations.
The consequences of leaving the House of Bread have been devastating. As in the story of Naomi and Ruth, there has been a huge attack on the family and happy wives have become lonely widows, without husbands or sons to help them. From single parents to pregnant teens and abortion, to drug dependency and suicide, our social problems have multiplied exponentially since we took prayer and the Bible (the revelation of the Bread of Life) out of our schools and other public institutions.
Naomi arose to return to Bethlehem, “For she had heard in the country of Moab, that the LORD had visited His people by giving them bread.” Ruth 1:6.
Hallelujah!!! The church will be increasingly offering the true “Bread of Life” to those who come to His table, because God is sovereignly visiting His people, many of whom have been desperately calling on His name in so many places, churches and houses of prayer. And now, I can see in the Spirit, and do declare and decree that massive multitudes are heading back to the House of Bread after spending time in a spiritually foreign country. They will taste again the Bread of Life and realize what they have been missing. I have a few relatives that I believe are part of that huge crowd.
This crowd will gather wherever the angels have built a platform for the voices of the redeemed and all of God’s ministers of His grace, His love and His power to transform. These platforms will be built on every mountain of society – Family, Religion, Government, Education, Media, Entertainment and Business. Perhaps you are called to cooperate behind the scenes to help place someone on that platform. Some of you may be called to be the voice on the platform, but don’t covet that position, unless you have a spiritually strong backbone of steel, because attacks will come, although God will take care of His people.
RUTH, THE MOABITESS
While Naomi is prophetic of former believers and partakers of the Bread of Life, Ruth is prophetic of those who have never tasted of it before. I believe God is going to move on the people of many nations, who have worshiped many other gods and have found their lives empty. When they see Christians coming back to that place of intimacy with the Bread of Life, they will be overwhelmed by the Holy Spirit with the need to come along with them, and taste of that Bread as well. Unlike Naomi, who couldn’t envision it being such a blessing for Ruth, spiritual foreigners will be encouraged to come along and taste of the fresh bread prepared in the House of Bread.
Because of Ruth’s love and devotion to Naomi, and her willingness to leave her homeland and her religious faith, God bestowed a huge blessing on her through a wonderful man named Boaz. Ruth not only ended up with a book in the Bible named after her, but she also became the great grandmother to David, Israel’s greatest king, which put her in the lineage of Jesus. I believe this too is prophetic. God is going to greatly honor some of those who have come to the House of Bread to partake of the Bread of Life, who grew up not knowing or loving Him. Some, like Paul, will have persecuted Him, even some of those who have served ISIS or other terrorist groups. God will give church leaders the wisdom and grace to empower these, like Barnabas did for Paul, and they will accomplish great things for God.
I want to challenge you to ask God to show you how to cooperate in the building of platforms for His chosen voices to speak to the people of the Land, who personally have tasted of the Bread of Life
Ask Him also to visit His people by bringing this Living Bread to them again. Remember that the natural bread, that people ate in Jesus time, had many necessary nutrients to sustain life. It wasn’t filled with artificial ingredients. It wasn’t “Fake Bread.” Pray for the Body of Christ to actually function with incredible sacrificial love, and awesome displays of supernatural power, as He did in His earthly body, and as the early church did as well. Then we ourselves, as His body, can also be transformed into Living Bread for a hungry generation.
So if you happen to see a lot of angels scurrying around with building materials, you know what they’re up to. Ask God to hasten this word to come to pass, for it surely will come to pass.
