Prophetic word 2016 by David Balestri
Below is a word that I believe God gave to me for the nation presently:
"There is a demonic assignment to frustrate my purposes in the nation of Australia amongst my key apostles in the land, it is an assignment of containment and also disillusionment.
Some of my ministers vacillate from confident to discouraged almost week to week. Others go from clarity to confusion just as quickly. They will have to fight this challenge and breakthrough in prayer, partnership and repositioning!
- Prayer remains the first steps in humbling hearts and releasing of my grace.
James 4:6 NIV – “But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
A fresh commitment and rediscovery of the place of prayer will need to be reestablished in the hearts and calendars of my leaders.
Colossians 4:2 NIV – “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.”
- Partnership and activation of the saints in kingdom communities I have placed them over.
The apostolic must filter into greater activation of the saints in their midst. Some of their sons must rise up as champions in the marketplace and congregational expressions of ministry.
It cannot remain that leaders stand at the forefront of kingdom activity and a great chasm is between them and the kingdom churches they serve into in the out working of this apostolic dimension in the life of the saints
Ephesians 4:11-12 NIV – “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up”
- Repositioning speaks to the stripping away of inaccurate positions
Jeremiah 1:10 NIV – “See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.””
Within their own hearts (ambitions, modes of leadership expression, spiritual understanding of how I want to relate to them in this season)
Within their leadership teams (secondary leaders must be recalibrated and some need to be reassigned)
Within the life expression of their kingdom communities (apostolic doctrine and sound, culture and engagement with their cities and assigned territories must become redefined and actioned)
The retooling of the prophetic will be a master key for these ministries, as they learn to embrace and engage with it they will discover an acceleration of ministry like they had hoped for and to date but as yet have not fully experienced.
This will have to come as a growing revelation to them and will not be forced upon them as their natures would cause them to resist it.
