Prophetic Words

CCR has been long blessed by the charism of prophecy, with many members receiving words and pictures from the Holy Spirit to edify, exhort and comfort individuals and groups.

Below Jenny Osterfield shares a prophecy she believes the Lord is giving us.

Alignment, Prayer & Praise

"My children, pay attention to my word and listen carefully for I will instruct you in the way that you should go. In the season that is approaching pray that your ears and eyes will be opened so that not a single word will escape your attention, for revelation, understanding and wisdom will fall upon you like rain. I am calling you to live in agreement with my heart and be united together as my body for this will be an extraordinary season when nations will continue to be shaken. I am calling you into a deeper level of trust in me. As the world continues to shake, I will be your refuge and safe harbour. Anchor yourselves firmly in me and do not be afraid of anything. Pray that you will more clearly hear my voice and see my works unfolding. I long to hear your hearts beating in tune with mine so that I may bring you into a deeper level of revelation, understanding and agreement with the plans I have for you and for the whole world."

"Mankind has turned its back on me preferring to worship gods of their own desiring. So now for a time, I will leave them with their arrogance and give them what they desire. This is not a time of judgement but a time of mercy. Whilst man prays for vaccines, clamours for climate change, and cries out for peace, his heart has become hardened and the peace he desires is beyond his grasp. What needs mending is beyond the power of men whose eyes are dimmed to the truth of the spiritual vacuum into which they are plunging. So out of my love and mercy I am allowing them to go down this path, as did the prodigal son, so that they may wake up to the truth, turn around and come back to me. I am their Father, who waits for their return with a heart bursting with love."

Align Yourselves With My Heart

"In this time of mercy, the world will shiver and shake with many trials and diffculties. There will be confusion and chaos in the world and in the Church but align yourselves with my heart and you will have nothing to fear. Do not be discouraged, stand firm, for this shaking will bring the fruit that has been ripening on the trees falling to the ground. See how I will align and position you to bring in this harvest, or else it will lie on the ground and spoil. Watch and see what I will do, for you can be sure that I have chosen you and will equip you for this time. I do not want you to be ignorant of the enemy’s tactics, for his lies and twisted truths will throw a smoke screen over the earth seducing many through fear, doubt, false prophecy and uncertainty. But not you, for you must look to the heavens where deliverance lies. You will see cohorts of angels alongside you and the Holy Spirit will give you peace in the knowledge that this battle that is raging belongs to me. More than that, the victory has already been won in Christ."

Pray For Those Who Are Asleep

"My children, is my Church ready for the harvest? Pray with repentance, in spirit and truth, for unity in my body; pray for those who are asleep to wake up and make ready for the harvest.

Encourage one another with songs of joy and deliverance. When you make your homes and communities places of healing, refuge, and peace, be certain in the knowledge that I am with you always."

Proverbs 18:20 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.   

Proverbs 4:20:  My son pay attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings, do not lose sight of them keep them within your heart.

Ps 32:8  I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

2 Chron 20:15 This is what the LORD says to you: `Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's. ... You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

Pay Attention To My Word

When I received this prophecy, I felt a strong emphasis on our need to “Pay attention to my Word” in order to stay in agreement with our Father’s heart and align ourselves with his plans. I sense there will be a lot going on in the heavenlies in the coming year, but we have nothing to fear. He will keep us absolutely safe in his heart. I had a picture of many little boats sheltering close together in a harbour. There was a thick fog rolling in, but the little boats were all lit up against the darkening sky and there was the sound of music, prayers, and joyful praise.

The second thing he showed me was a basket of ripe fruit. I wondered at first if this was referring to Amos’ prophecy over Jerusalem but then I had a sense that he was referring to a ripening harvest of souls. I do also wonder if we are called to pray for the peace of Jerusalem in these days.

The third picture was of a heavenly army of angels in armour both on horseback and on foot. The fire of the Lord’s radiance was reflecting on their shields and armour so that it was a dazzling sight. Then I heard these words: “Take up your positions” and saw the army form into lines in front, behind and in the middle as they were commanded.

An amusing afterthought: over breakfast recently the Lord showed me the Words: “Alignment, Prayer, Praise” as an acronym APP and said, Jenny “when you are seeking answers, revelation or guidance, I am the only APP you need!”. 

Follow the way of love and eagerly desire the gifts of the Spirit-especially prophecy.

-1 Corinthians 14:1

St Paul places strongest emphasis on prophecy as the charism that is especially efficacious in building up the Church. Prophecy is speech inspired by the Spirit, communicating a message that is not one's own but comes from God.
