The Future of the Church – Honouring His Word…

In The Future of the Church & The Future of the Church – Indigenous Leadership I believe the Lord has been building a picture of what the Church will undergo to prepare Her for the great end-time harvest and His ultimate coming…

In this post, I believe the Lord wants me to share what He showed me with respect to Honouring His Word…

There was a Prophetic Conference held recently in Christchurch, New Zealand…

My wife attended this conference…

I didn’t feel from the Lord to attend but one morning during the conference as I lay in bed the Lord gave me a vision…

This vision was New Zealand specific but I believe it has ramifications for the Church in all localities as the Lord brings Revival…

I saw a Church, it was as if I was seeing the heart of the Church, they were a Church who honoured the Lord’s Word (what He has said in scripture) – this means that they trembled at and respected His Word – they held what He said in scripture in honour…

They wanted to protect His Name, to honour His character…

They didn’t have all the gifts, they didn’t have all the frills, but they did – on the inside – in their hearts – honour His Word…

I saw the Holy Spirit fill and consume every Church in New Zealand who were standing in honour of His Word (as revealed in scripture)…

I literally saw them consumed – set on fire – and all of sudden – they were in Revival…

This will occur…

Then I saw other ‘churches’ who didn’t honour His Word – they may have had a lot on, they may have had hype and frills and excitement – but they didn’t honour His Word…

In an instant, I saw these ‘churches’ completely reduced to ashes…

All that was left was the black soot of the remainder of their foundation and the smoke rising from their ashes…

I saw the entire superstructure burnt to the ground in an instant of time, incinerated…

This was quite a sobering picture or vision for me…

I knew what the Lord was saying…

He will take those who have been faithful in their hearts with what they’ve been given and who have honoured Him in their lives – may not have been flashy or impressive – may not have been popular but they’ve been faithful and stayed true to Him – He will Baptise them with the Holy Spirit and with Fire and they will come to life and burn in this nation…

The others, who have an appearance of being alive but have strayed from their honour of His Word and sought experiences and feelings in place of allowing Him to bring them into submission to His Word – who have compromised His Word – these ‘churches’ will be removed by the Lord – He will spew them out of His Mouth…

He will not have their testimony blighting His Name…

Immediately I started seeing this vision or picture I was reminded of the word which the Lord gave Smith Wigglesworth which I quoted in full previously in Speak the Vision – I re-quote a part of that word again below…

When the new church phase is on the wane, there will be evidenced in the churches something that has not been seen before: a coming together of those with an emphasis on the Word and those with an emphasis on the Spirit.

When the word and the Spirit come together, there will be the biggest movement of the Holy Spirit that the nation, indeed, the world has ever seen. It will mark the beginning of a revival that will eclipse anything that has been witnessed within these shores, even the Wesleyan and the Welsh revivals of former years. The out pouring of God’s Spirit will flow over from the United Kingdom to the mainland of Europe, and from there will begin a missionary move to the ends of the earth.

(Smith Wigglesworth, 1947)

This word was for Great Britain and what I saw was for New Zealand…

What this says to me is that this is what the Lord will do worldwide…

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my late-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
