In a state of being half awake and half asleep, I had a vision of a splinter being removed out of my “pointing” finger…. and then a short while later as I worshiped in tongues, the English words “true life,” came and then, “a true life is coming.” I believe the Spirit is revealing that a new life will begin when the splinter is removed. So what does an index finger represent, eh? It’s etymology is: “one who points out, discloser, informer…. literally “anything which points out.” The word “discloser” was like “a four-leaf clover find” with the message: “You’ve got it!”
Over the last few months I have listened to someone tell me of some serious trouble in her marriage and I came to know some things that her husband had done that were far from good. During the time that I was on the phone talking to Ann (not her real name), her husband was listening to our conversation and I found myself preaching “at him,” while talking to her… That was not good either, but thankfully, the Holy Spirit corrected me… He’a a nudger, you know, and I got that uneasy feeling that something wasn’t right, and while still on the phone with her, I expressed that I was sensing conviction in my heart. I think she may have thought I was scolding her, but I was scolding the men in my past who had done some of the hurtful things her husband had done.
Afterwards, what happened came back to my mind and I realized I needed to pray for more understanding to be given to me from the Lord. I thought I had forgiven all the men who had ever hurt me, even felt the anointing when I blessed them, so I had no clue about what was in operation until this vision came. One of the dictionary’s meanings of the word “splinter is “a group or fraction broken away from a “parent” body.
I’m doing an “Aha! Aha! Aha!” dance now on heaven’s “Revelation Cloud.” Oh yes, a new day is coming because the curse has come to light, and will no longer have a place in me. Here’s what my eyes have been opened up to see: The curse came upon Noah’s son Ham, because he didn’t cover his father’s nakedness…. He looked at it and talked about it, and when we look at other people’s nakedness and talk about them, a curse comes with great contamination involving others. What we’ve done is we’ve eaten the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. When we listen to the wrongs done by others, it’s in our nature to judge and not like whoever we’re judging. Then you know what happens next: JUDGMENT comes on US!
I had no business listening to Ann talk about her husband, and I have no business listening to anybody else’s talk about others unless it’s for the purpose of obeying Matthew 18 in order to have resolution and reconciliation. Prior to getting the splinter vision, I asked the lord to reveal what the “virus” was a type and shadow of, and lo and behold: It’s this very thing. Has there been more talk, rock-throwing, shaming words and dishonor put on everyone and everything than we see today? People of God, it’s time to wash our mouths out with the soap of God’s Word and put the ear plugs of the Holy Spirit’s restraint in our ears. The world and the Body of Christ are splintered because we’re listening and talking about what we shouldn’t, and then “pointing our fingers.”
Philippians 4:8 states: “ Brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are a good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
It’s not possible to obey this scripture if we’re listening to negative reports. Are we not told to mind our own business? Just what IS that business?: Isn’t it to preach the Word, heal the sick and cast out demons? Aren’t we citizens of ANOTHER world? I ask you: The news broadcasted by the world: From WHAT tree does that knowledge come? It most definitely does not come from the tree of life (wisdom), so what are we doing eating its fruit? The Bible says that the cares of this world CHOKE OUT the Word and we wonder why we don’t have peace.
Paul said: “Follow me as I follow Christ!” Never did I ever think monkeys would have more sense than we do, but I say if we want to prosper, be in health and be free from the curse, we’ve gotta’ follow not only Paul, but the monkeys, too, and “Hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil”…. Don’t you know?: THESE three monkeys aren’t monkeying around:
They’re following CHRIST!
