Prophesy From the Depths of Christ in You

Sound Waves From MouthWords that are prophetically sounding out in the shallow waters travel quickly and often penetrate the individual in the emotions, whereby they quickly react to the word but it does not go deep. Words that are prophetically sounding out in the deep waters travel slowly down, down, down into the spirit where truth impacts and causes inner transformation of the individual. The deep waters – that’s our focus. Here’s the first post in this journey – Prophets in the Deep.

Here’s a bit of science? In the natural, sound travels faster in water than air because the atoms are closer together so it can jump from atom to atom quicker. The distance that sound waves travel through water is dependent on ocean temperature and pressure. The speed of sound decreases with increasing depth. At some point, they reach the bottom and the speed of sound increases and the waves refract back up.

Spiritually speaking, prophetic words spoken in the shallows travel fast. Prophetic words in the deep travel much slower until they reach a point of deep contact within an individual and then are refracted back up. Those words resounding in the depths of a person impact at a much greater level but they take time to meditate on in times of intimacy with the Lord.

Ladder to skyIt’s a great analogy for us who are called to speak through prophetic call on our lives. We desire to see life change not just a constant stream of words going out. It’s important to sound out from the deep, to raise up a mature prophetic people. Remember, the deep is our union with and in Christ Jesus. We speak from that depth of our living, moving and having our being in Christ to those whom God sends to us – words of spirit, life, and truth.

But, look around. There are not many people out here with us but there should be. What should that tell us? It’s time for the prophetic to rise up and mature. In our maturity, we speak out to others from our abiding place of union in Christ. This imparts words of the spirit to change people from within the depths of their being.

I am tired and weary of hearing the same remix of words over and over and over. I looked online to see how prophetic words have evolved over the past few years. Well, they really haven’t. The same things were being said one year ago, two years ago that are being said today. God is looking for quality and depth today. This is a sound of maturity flowing from within a prophetic community.

It seems that the current stream of prophetic words keep many anchored to the shallow waters rather than calling them out deeper. Why? There could be a lot of various reasons. Many seem to want to make a name for themselves and the quickest way to do that is to post a prophetic word that promises everything but the kitchen sink, capturing the emotions but doing little in the way of Holy Spirit. Others want to play it safe to keep the people dependent on their word or ministry, not Jesus, the living Word. There are a lot of reasons but anything that takes our focus off of Christ is idolatry.

Jesus was a man of enigma, mystery and truth. He spoke to the spirit not the mind of the individual. He did not appeal to the emotions. He spoke within the resonance of heaven’s directional call. As the words sounded out, He called a people into deep union with Him. He did not aim for shallow understanding but inner transformation. He spoke from His own union with the Father. Without a revelation of our union in Christ, we speak from the shallows, not the depths of our being. There are no short cuts to this. It is about intimacy with Christ.

I and My Father are one. (John 10:30 NKJV)

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. (John 6:63 NKJV)

  1. Thank you for you response! I really appreciate you spending time to communicate with me (us) on this blog! You are not another gimmic! I don’t mean to sound bitter, I don’t feel that way; just real! What you are saying in your latest blogs resonates so deep in me! I heard recently someone say that he had to give up praying, worshipping, interceding, warring, etc. because the Lord was disconnecting him from “these works” so he could reconnect to “Christ.” Simply Christ in his, the hope of glory! Thanks again for your courage and boldness to speak the truth in love! It is received and is bringing life in our hearts because it is confirmation!!!

    • You don’t sound bitter……..like me in times past…….frustrated but let that turn to passion which I know you will. Thank you because your comments are filled with life.

  2. My friend and I recently looked over words from the last 8-10 or more years. Each year we were so excited, but have experienced loss after loss and heartache after heartache. We have wondered “where did we miss all of this!” “What’s wrong with us?” However, we have not stopped wanting God, but we did lose some of the ways we sought after God. The only thing I can say is that we have never stopped loving God or wanting God, but, I told her the other day, “I really don’t want to hear any more words until these come to pass because either the words have all been wrong, or, something is wrong with us, and if it is us, I want it to change.” I have lived in expectancy, hope, faith, but lost a lot of “religious activity” because it was works that didn’t have any return. I am not trying to be negative, just truthful! I think there is more to “oneness with God” than obtaining a destiny, inheritance, prosperty, gifts, and things than we have been taught or caught! I cannot take another carrot dangling and hang on to it anymore! I need the reality of Christ in my life…nothing more and nothing less! What does that mean?

    • Donita…thanks for your comment. I have been offline for a few days and just got back to read this. Oneness….that is key. Christ in me, the hope of glory. Christ in you – that is revelation of the deep waters. The person of Jesus Christ. Some of the prophecies given to me over the years? I have gone back through my journals and simply released some of them as they were in the flesh in the prophetic hey day. I looked through the eyes of the Spirit and asked which to keep and which to leave behind. We have not missed it. We have missed Christ as our focus. As Frank Viola says: If you read Scripture in a way that doesn’t point to Christ, you don’t have Christianity, you have religion. Jesus is God’s language. When God wants to communicate, He does so through His son. God wants to communicate through prophetic declarations in and through the revelation of His Son.
