The Lord is restoring the biblical apostolic and prophetic to the house of the Lord to rebuild His house. A cursory look at the house of God and it is obviously in disarray in many ways. We experienced a wave of the apostolic and prophetic, but it, for the most part, went to self-serving interests, rather than biblical assignment. When Paul says, first apostles, he is using an analogy of building a house, you first lay the foundation, so if you are apostolic you are the foundation, the first thing laid down. Second prophets, because prophets are the infrastructure of the house. They set things in order, they frame the house, they bring alignment and correction. Then Paul says, third teachers. Teachers bring content like insulation to make the house retain what it gains. Therefore, when I say the Lord is bring the biblical apostolic and prophetic to the house of the Lord, this is what I mean.
This is why the Lord has been speaking to me about the prophetic, because we have experienced the candy coated prophetic, but we have not experienced to a great measure, the building prophetic. Biblical prophets are builders of God’s house and God’s people. 2 Chronicles 24 speaks about the rebuilding of the house of God and says this about the prophets, “He sent prophets to them to bring them back to the Lord; though they testified against them, they would not listen. Then the spirit of God came upon Zechariah; and he stood above the people and said to them, Thus God has said, why do you transgress the commandments of the Lord and do not prosper? Because you have forsaken the Lord.” Biblical prophets are going to call Christians to repentance, back to God. Watch for the Lord is sending us biblical prophets for the Lord has entered the rebuilding stage of His house.
