With each Generation, it seems that God is doing something fresh in the prophetic to prepare His Bride by way of adornment. There has been tremendous movement all over the earth as it pertains to His love and grace being poured out on all flesh. Prophetic voices, for the most part, have been in agreement that Father is unveiling His heart in amazing ways for what He is preparing for eternity. And that involves a call to intimacy like we’ve never seen in our lifetime. Looking back over the last 20 years of ministry in my own life I can tell you with certainty that Papa God has taken many of His Prophets through what I call “Special Forces” training in the Spirit. A lot of which was and is meant to develop our character, but also to open our hearts to become one with Him in every way. I remember as a young Prophet in training, there was little better than feeling the fire in delivering a strong word to someone, anyone, who I thought needed to hear it strong. I thought that way because it was what I believed I was supposed to do, and really, it was mixed with a lot of zeal that would cause me to become the Spitfire in prophetic delivery. I am not saying this is necessarily wrong, it’s just that we learn some things from growth and experience.
A couple of years ago I remember Papa speaking clearly to me that He was shifting how the prophetic would operate in and through me for what was to come. I could literally feel my heart longing for His Bride in such a way that would cause me to weep deeply. It wasn’t a grieving from a “sin consciousness” necessarily, but more of a longing, like a Groom would for His Bride on their wedding day. It was spiritual passion and intimacy for a greater level of adornment for His Bride, is the only way I can describe it. This, in turn, caused me to enter into the Fruit of The Spirit Consciousness like I had never known before. It was no longer the mindset of having to shout or strive to deliver a word to someone. It was more of a weighted conversation with an even tone in my delivery of the word. It was as if I could feel Jesus stepping through me in such a tangible way that I could feel His breath and hear His heart beating for His Bride, each time I would prophesy or prophetically minister to someone. It was awesome!
A couple of years ago I was at a home meeting getting ready to prophetically minister, and I heard Him whisper in my spirit saying, “It’s time to suit up”. I immediately thought of the movie Iron Man, and then began to feel the cloaking of Christ come on me like the suit did with Robert Downey Jr. It was an awesome experience because as soon as I felt His cloaking, I could feel His breath, see through His eyes, and hear His words coming through me. After the meeting was over and we left for the night I began to ponder what had happened and asked the Lord about it. He said, “I can’t help myself any longer, I want to be close to My Bride. I desire for her to hear me clearly and I want her to feel my heartbeat as if I was standing right there with her in the flesh.” He went on to tell me that He is transforming His Prophets in such a way that they will be seen and even thought of as “tailors” in the Spirit who were preparing the wedding dress of a bride before her wedding day. What does a tailor do exactly, you may ask? The job or work of a tailor is to make ready a bride in such a way that drops jaws and causes loud gasps to be heard in the crowd as she walks towards her groom on her special day. The job of a tailor is to fine tune through impartation what has already been prepared in the heart through love. In other words, it’s the anointing that has already brought instruction to her spirit, now it’s the confirmation of that beauty and love coming through a gentle hand of adjustment to her garments.
In the same way, Father has been gently guiding, instructing, disciplining and developing His Prophets in this hour to become the heartbeat of his love to prepare a Bride that needs to reflect the joy she is experiencing for the event of a lifetime. This is why Prophets everywhere are being challenged to love and receive grace like they never have before. Some have received the new suit of the new nature gladly, while others have struggled to leave the old wineskin of harsh and even angry judgment behind. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that New Testament Prophets never bring a word of correction, because sometimes they do. However, what I am saying is that Papa is raising up and bringing forth His “Bridal Prophets” to prepare them for an exciting, joyous and passionate marriage to a Passionate, Loving, All-Consuming Love of a Bride-Groom King that will last forever.
Note: It wasn’t long after the home meeting, that I began to see Owls and hear about Owls everywhere. The Lord then began revealing to me that the Prophets and the Prophetic Movement, in general, was being changed into oracles that could see treasures in the night, and they would be dropped onto the scene stealthfully, and quietly, striking with precision rather than screams that drew attention to themselves. He was also changing the scream of the eagle to sound like the wisdom and beauty of an O.w.l…O.ne W.ith L.ove.
So who are these “OWL Prophets?”
OWL(One With Love) Prophets are chosen and appointed by God, then acknowledged by man. They speak forth oracles from the heart of Christ. They understand that their commissioning doesn’t stop with the mere appointing and title of Prophet. They have allowed the development of maturity to reach the point of becoming love in the earth. They know that without an intertwining with love in every way, the gift becomes nothing.
OWL Prophets have heard the cry of the Son and have surrendered to the fullness of the union of The Trinity. This, in turn, causes the intimacy of The Godhead to be seen, heard and felt in all they are and all they release to The Body of Christ. This is the new wineskin.
John 17: 20-23 AMP “I do not pray for these alone [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for [all] those who [will ever] believe and trust in Me through their message, that they all may be one; just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe [without any doubt] that You sent Me. I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected and completed into one, so that the world may know [without any doubt] that You sent Me, and [that You] have loved them, just as You have loved Me.
1 Corinthians 6:17 But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him.
1 Cor. 12: 28-31 AMP So God has appointed and placed in the church [for His own use]: first apostles [chosen by Christ], second prophets [those who foretell the future, those who speak a new message from God to the people], third teachers, then those who work miracles, then those with the gifts of healings, the helpers, the administrators, and speakers in various kinds of [unknown] tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? But earnestly desire and strive for the greater gifts [if acquiring them is going to be your goal]. And yet I will show you a still more excellent way [one of the choicest graces and the highest of them all: unselfish love].
1 Cor. 13 AMP If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love [for others growing out of God’s love for me], then I have become only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal [just an annoying distraction]. And if I have the gift of prophecy [and speak a new message from God to the people], and understand all mysteries, and [possess] all knowledge; and if I have all [sufficient] faith so that I can remove mountains, but do not have love [reaching out to others], I am nothing.
OWL Prophets have moved beyond the mere gifting to embrace to the totality of the Gift Giver. They are not focused on the gift as much as they are becoming one with the fullness of Christ in the earth. When a OWL Prophet understands that it’s all about LOVE and UNION as a believer, then their attention remains on Christ and bringing forth the oracles that help others to do the same. Their message is to prepare The Bride to meet the Groom without spot and wrinkle through the lens of love and the new nature in Christ. They understand what it means to decree things from a “Bride & Groom” mindset rather than a “Doom & Gloom” mentality because of the enormity of what Christ has finished on the cross of Calvary.
Romans 8: 9-16 (Liv.) But you are not like that. You are controlled by your new nature if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that if anyone doesn’t have the Spirit of Christ living in him, he is not a Christian at all.) 10 Yet, even though Christ lives within you, your body will die because of sin; but your spirit will live, for Christ has pardoned it. 11 And if the Spirit of God, who raised up Jesus from the dead, lives in you, he will make your dying bodies live again after you die, by means of this same Holy Spirit living within you. 12 So, dear brothers, you have no obligations whatever to your old sinful nature to do what it begs you to do. 13 For if you keep on following it you are lost and will perish, but if through the power of the Holy Spirit you crush it and its evil deeds, you shall live. 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 And so we should not be like cringing, fearful slaves, but we should behave like God’s very own children, adopted into the bosom of his family, and calling to him, “Father, Father.” 16 For his Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts and tells us that we really are God’s children.
OWL Prophets are:
-Those who live out of Romans 8 and equip others to do the same.
-Those who operate out of a place of rest rather than striving because of where they have been seated in Christ.
-Those who love deeply and help others to overcome through grace, and their new nature in Christ.
-Those who help prepare the Bride of Christ to become the most beautiful version of herself, for the wedding of all weddings.
-Those who lead by example, from among
-Those who see the treasure in people; causing them to rise to who they really are in the eyes of Heaven.
-Those who are filled with the Fruit of the Spirit rather than anger and wrath.
-Those who expose religious spirits and their behaviors, through love.
-Those who honor all men, regardless of their shortcomings.
-Those who do not compromise their faith by succumbing to pharisaical rants and directives.
-Those who honor authority, and have deep relationships with others.
-Those who love the church and want to see her become radiant in every way through the new nature only found in Christ Jesus.
-Those who have gone through the processing of awakening and revelation in order to develop Godly character and non-religious language.
-Those who do not focus on seeing demons in every doorknob and evil in every corner, making the enemy bigger than God. They are not ignorant. They rule in their authority, subjecting the enemy.
-Those who believe the best, see the best, and think the best, about everyone they encounter.
-Those who go into dark places and see with the Fathers love before casting knee-jerk judgments.
-Those who call others back to the heart of The Word and into oneness with the Bride-Groom King.
For we truly have become One With Love, and The Father is preparing an extravagant wedding for His Son, Christ Jesus like we have never seen. It’s time to be prepared and adorned with beauty and majesty for The One who deserves it all.
Rev. 21: 1-3 AMP Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away (vanished), and there is no longer any [a]sea. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, arrayed like a bride adorned for her husband; 3 and then I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “See! The tabernacle of God is among men, and He will live among them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them [as their God]
