Prophets are like living mortar in the foundation, like concrete flowing and filling in the gaps and crevices; strengthening and molding the pieces together into one fortified wall. Without the prophet, the foundations become weakened and unstable.
In the New Covenant, a prophet’s ultimate mission is the same as everyone else’s: we are all ministers of reconciliation. Because of that, it’s sometimes difficult to allow yourself to be pulled out and allow things to fall apart. But sometimes as a prophet, you must be willing to stop holding up that which God has decided shall fall.
Nehemiah listened to the word of the Lord and restored the wall that was fallen; but don’t forget, those walls first fell at the word of the Lord. Prophets may see beyond time, but they must operate within time. You release now what God says is to be released now. If today the wall falls, tomorrow it rises. Speak true to what God says today so tomorrow may come.
Jeremy Caris is the founder and president of Caris Ministries. Since he is called as a prophet and gifted as a teacher, much of his focus involves equipping believers to hear, know, and follow God in their own daily experience. He teaches the foundational truth of the Word with simple clarity, while revealing deep things of the spirit in practical ways. He has the unique ability to demystify the supernatural side of real relationship with a living God and make it an embraceable and accessible reality for all believers. Jeremy has been married to his best friend, Mandy Caris, for twenty years, and is the proud father of two boys.
