PROPHETIC ACUITY

Acuity - sharpness or keenness of thought; vision or hearing; ability to discern fine detail


Amos 9:13-15 The Message (MSG)
13-15 “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree.

“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel:

“They’ll rebuild their ruined cities.

They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine.

They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables.

And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land.

They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.”

God, your God, says so.

Isaiah 58:11-12 KJV
[11] And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. [12] And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

We are now on the threshold of a new season. The old season is past and done, and the next leg of our journey is BEGINNING! The new season will be one of revelation and relevance. Our environment and experiences will take on unusual importance and significance.

You are at the end of an era, a period of time marked by a greater level of discernment and the ability to express what you discern with clarity. You will not lose the spiritual prophetic acuity that you've gained. Instead, you will build on that foundation of precision and have opportunities to expand spiritually and apply that new level of discernment to every area of your existence.

You will need to look deeply into the details of every situation without fear of recrimination. The more honest and accountable you are, the better able you will be to see and accept the truth. The keys to discovery are flexibility and transparency, says the Lord.

It is important that we stay present with God—right here; right now. We must not dread or fear what’s coming or make presumptions with regard to what lies ahead. Nor should we live in regret of what is already done or try to go back to old places.

The LORD is preparing us as the Church, and there is much service to render!!!

Ephesians 5:26-27 states; “that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.

In this season many will realize they aren’t where they are supposed to be and will want to return or get back on track. Their absence will be excused by the Lord through God’s forgiveness. “Now” there will be a revival of the souls of those who have lost hope and given up. Their attention will be drawn away from their suffering as they once again look to the LORD and live. Our work is to demonstrate the kingdom and apply the Word in all things – to do what we’ve been taught.

James 1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

The number one priority for us in this season is unity with God. Our relationship with Him needs to be like a laser beam so that when that connection is disturbed or broken an alarm will go off in our spirit man.

If we will stay spiritually connected, revelation will be really crisp, and there will be greater clarity in discernment, and sensitivity in awareness. There will be razor-sharp prophetic acuity. We must set our desire on higher spiritual trajectory.

Prepare your heart through submission to come boldly into the LORD’S presence. Refuse to allow anything at all to come between your intimacy with the Lord. Now is the time to clear the spiritual air so that you can stand righteously before God in positional truth. Accept forgiveness and get ready to express the excellence of God’s kingdom in your mortal existence by living free from guilt and shame. Release all things that have held you in bondage, and be/live free.

Become first responders in the realm of the Spirit, so that your actions in response to the enemy's attacks are immediate and effective. Be aware that the longer you wait to resist and bind the powers of darkness, the more damage can be done. Your spiritual actions are vital to your freedom.

First responders are taught, trained, and equipped to respond to crisis situations. They are in a constant state of readiness--alert and selfless. They know that their routine could be interrupted at any moment. They do not allow any interference or distraction to keep them from their duty to contain the damage and bring restoration.

Our duty is to use the tools that God has given to us as we respond, exercising our faith by the Word of God and trusting Him in the face of adversity.

Practice discernment and exercise your faith. Your awareness is like a muscle that can be developed with use. Don't be afraid to activate your spiritual acuity in everyday situations and circumstances. This is a season when you can operate in spiritual gifts at a higher level than you ever thought possible. Prepare yourself by faith to hear God’s voice, to see visions, to dream dreams, and to have a heightened sense of your atmosphere and environment. Set yourself to receive all that God has made available to you and the LORD will be with you.

The external circumstances that have seemed to take you down in the past will now seem insignificant compared to the strength you have gained through endurance. Your experiences have established character and a level of maturity otherwise unattainable. Rejoice in your survival!

In the coming season simplicity will lead to the profound. Refuse to allow complications to take you off course. Your task is to eliminate distractions in order to gain spiritual depth. That will mean a shift in focus from satisfying fleshly desire to developing a spiritual desire to be one with the spirit of the Lord. This shift in desire will require discipline and self-control, but the outcome will be worth your effort. For, you will certainly see the manifestation of God’s glory as you continue to seek first the kingdom of God.

Maximize every opportunity to be in the LORD’S presence. Don’t be afraid to exercise your faith. The Spirit will make a very clear distinction between presumption and a faith, which cannot be shaken or dissuaded. You will know exactly where you stand and what to do.

If you will put your trust completely in the LORD, you will experience true unity. This is a season when you will no longer stretch up as on your tiptoes to try to understand revelation or to see and discern as an external exercise. Rather, you will become one with the Lord as he is one with the Father, and you will know spiritual reality—not as something to be received or attained, but as a result of being joined to the LORD’S heart. It will be the overflow of intimacy.

Take advantage of every moment available to seek God’s face, hear His voice, and obey His leading. Plant the seed of a spiritual desire to yield completely and instantly to the moving of Holy Spirit. Demonstrate the kingdom. Do your job with excellence and confidence. You will not be disappointed, says the Lord God Almighty!

And, we say yes and amen; let it be according to Your Word, Lord!
