We have shared many prophetic words with you. John shares a prophetic night vision that he had about what is going to take place concerning revival. In this night vision, John was in a large conference room with people all around. A very important man was sitting on one side of the desk and seated on the other side was Pastor John Kilpatrick. In front of Pastor Kilpatrick was a blank sheet of paper with a series of pens, neatly aligned and placed, like when the President signs an Executive Order. As John was taking all of this in, his attention turned to a man speaking calmly from another table in the room, who then said, “What you are about to witness is historic, it’s the signing of a proclamation of a 7-Year Thorn and Thistle Revival.”
This sounds like this time of revival will be the best of times and the worst of times. In revival you see spiritual confrontations and because of this you must understand that it is a time for you and for others to get free from the things that need to be burned out of your life. We see that when revival comes difficulty comes too. We must remember the times we are in now so that when we are in the middle of revival we don’t get tempted to think things were better before revival. Because the enemy will try to tell you that.
Being that the prophecy is about a thorn and thistle revival it brings up the parable of Jesus, The Parable of the Sower.
“That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.” Matthew 13:1-9
In this parable Jesus gives the meaning: “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” Matthew 13:18-23
Therefore, it is important for believers to be discipled so that they can thrive in their relationship with Jesus and can also have the tools they need to lead others to Jesus and disciple others too. You can find a discipleship path on Emmaus Road and start on your journey of becoming a disciple of Jesus! Also, it is important to honor God with the first fruits meaning that we give Him the first 10% of our income! This shows Him that we put Him first in our lives and that we are acknowledging that He is our provider.
