By Tim Taylor December 27, 2022 - I heard someone the other day highlight the difference between an evangelist and a prophet this way. The gift of evangelist is sent to the lost. The gift of prophet is sent to the church and I would also add to kings, governments, and rulers in authority. It was in the late 80s that other ministers began to recognize the prophetic office at work in my life. That was accompanied by our launch into the ministry wherein our LORD called it Watchman Ministries International. We operated as such for 20 years until the LORD gave me an apostolic commission in late 2008. That is an amazing story for another time.
The watchman's job is to cry out what he sees to the kings and elders who sit in the gates. Even though the name changed, the gift in my life still works. In fact, our personal call can be summed up in this phrase, "declare and prepare."
Hence, the warnings I often give. For decades I've warned of the tactics of the adversary in politics and in the culture war. I've warned, we've warned of the need to prepare for disaster, warned of political party platforms and a demonic agenda. I've heard, proclaimed and pioneered the building of the wall of prayer, the role of the watchmen on the wall, the proliferation of house churches, and much more. Why at the start of the pandemic we even began to act upon the word we heard putting our faith into action in the community.
Many of our ministers heard similar things and acted as well. It is why I've included this interview with Chris Reed, Charlie Stamp and Michael Fiskless. They have a much larger audience than myself or any of our ministers. Around the 18 minute mark they began to proclaim what I've been, what many of our ministers have been proclaiming for sometime. Click here. I urge you to hear the word of the LORD and act accordingly.
The Opportunity & Encouragement
I've discovered over the years, the LORD shows me things and I speak and then also act. It is not unusual for many not to hear nor understand until years later. As the time draws near, more and more begin to hear and proclaim the same thing. Chris, Charlie and Michael have a much larger audience. When those begin to hear and proclaim I've often found the time is very near.
I share this to encourage several of our ministers who've been hearing and preparing, in some cases, for decades. My friends, for such a time as this. It's time for house churches to engage their neighborhoods. It's time for these house churches to be connected together. A net for the harvest. It's time for discipleship and for apostolic doctrine.
I pray we hit the mark. I pray you fulfill your purpose in these days. For those ministers of ours who don't have the audience reach like these other guys do, don't be discouraged but be encouraged. You've heard well. Now, continue you on with the work our Father has assigned you and let us choose to demonstrate God's love and character as we continue to advance the kingdom together.
Warning for the WhiteHouse
I've shared this message from Jonathan Cahn here, because I've heard something similar. Over the years many of you have heard the warnings I've given with the call to repent. You know we've fought in this culture war for more than two decades and for the last 5 years we've led the Call to Pray for our Nation on Thursdays. One of the last things we addressed was the so called "Respect for Marriage Act" which is anything but that. Jonathan eloquently and accurately addresses the president and calls him to repent.
