Prayers Made Flesh – Manifestation
John Barker 2017
Early Monday morning 10.30.2017, I prayed, pondered and sought the Lord regarding these questions:
Where is the manifestation of our/my prayers?
Why aren’t things manifesting according to your Word and our expectation?
He then began to put this theme in my Spirit: The Word Made Flesh
Of course, that’s all there was. It was now my job and focus to mine this out and go deeper. Initially it was about Him becoming flesh to dwell among us.
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…”
But that is a general theme, provision and premise in scripture. I knew there was more…much more.
“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the glory of kings to search it out.”
The desire/prayer of YHVH was to reveal Himself to His creation…mankind. He desired to walk with man and commune with His prized possession. When this prayer/plan was altered by that very creation, YHVH continued with His plan. He would take on flesh and be that ‘living prayer/manifestation’! He would dwell
within man and tabernacle with him forever. Then, in the fullness of time and His prayer/plan, He would come to Earth forever and dwell in and among His creation.
Ezekiel 37 has so much prophetic premises and promises. They are central to the Son of Man and the prayer/plan of YHVH to unite His Royal House. It also contains a hidden secret exchange in light of the ‘Manifestation of the Word Becoming Flesh’ message.
THE Son of Man (Yeshua) speaks to the Son of man (Ezekiel) and asks him a very important question:
“Son of man, can these bones live?”
He was asking: “Can they manifest flesh, live and assemble as a mighty army again?” Then he emphatically directs Ezekiel to pray/prophesy/declare and decree:
“Dry bones, listen to the Word of the Lord! Look, I am going to breathe into you
and make you live again. I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with
skin. I will put breath into you, and you will live and come to life. Then you will
know that I am the Lord.”
Then the Lord tells him to speak to the activator of the Word to make it happen; the Spirit of the Living God!
“Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so that
they may live again.”
Then, if that wasn’t enough, YHVH wasn’t finished. He has Ezekiel do the final prophetic action:
“Son of man, take a stick and carve on it these Words: “This stick represents
Judah and its allied tribes.” Then take another stick and carve these words on it:
“This stick represents the northern tribes of Israel.” ”
More explanation is given about what YHVH will do in the future and we see the 2 sticks/Houses/Tribes coming together as One. That will be the prophetic fulfillment of YHVH’s prayer/plan.
Ezekiel 37 shows us YHVH’s 5 Step Restoration Plan:
Tabernacle of David
Return of the Remnant
Return to the Torah
Return to the Land
Why is this important to share? Because it helps us understand the Manifestation Plan of God and the pattern in which our prayers receive fulfillment.
Starts with a Question/Need: “God, I have need of this or can I pray for this?”
Next comes the Spiritual Action Step: Speak it forth.
Then comes the Physical Action Step: Write it down or do something.
Manifestation in the future: Timing up to God.
God spoke and Yeshua was sown as a seed by Him into woman. It was manifested 9mo later. Mary received the Word. She cooperated with God and nurtured and spoke life over Him and even knew His Name. She knew the Promise would come.
When we pray, the scripture conditionally states that we must ‘believe what we are asking for will come to pass’. Believe and receive, right? Not that easy.
Flippant, non-detailed, insincere, routinized, phone-it-in prayers rarely receive a response or a manifestation. Why? God knows our heart, mind, will, emotion, flesh and intention are not in it. Why should He act if we don’t???
We are to mix our prayers with faith, fervor, fasting, effectiveness, boiling-over, detailed agreement and works that line up with His Word & Will. Then we are to breathe on them with the power of the Spirit of God. Then we are to write it down and mark the day/hour/minute so that all Glory goes to Him when it manifests.
We are to visibly see our prayers/needs start to move, put on flesh and eventually manifest fully and live, so we can dwell with it and succeed!
Our prayers are really legal decrees, declarations and dictates. You see, YHVH needed a legal being on Earth, Zeke, to work through to bring His Word & Will to pass ‘on Earth, as it is already done, in Heaven.’
It is a legal transaction on Earth. “If two or more agree on Earth pertaining to anything they ask, it will be done by My Father/Source/Creator in Heaven!” YHVH came to Ezekiel, showed him a vision, then told him what He needed to get done. Ezekiel had to perceive it and get it in his ‘knower/Spirit’. Then, he could activate and take proper action.
In essence, the Word/need of YHVH, became flesh/life to him internally first. The process. This had to take the form of a question to Ezekiel. Then, once the Lord…and Ezekiel, were on the same page proverbially, the next step could occur.
Receive. Believe. Conceive. Receive. Relieved!
He has put His Torah, His Spirit on our hearts and minds according to Jeremiah 33:31-33 and Hebrews 8:8-12. It is a covenant and promise that cannot be revoked. But it must be activated.
What things need flesh, skin, breath and a Spirit-direction, so they can rise up and manifest as an army in your life to produce promised outcomes???
You are endowed with precious premises and pregnant with promises! I encourage you to go back over your prayers and list of needs, and apply this process to see the manifestation that you, others and most of all God, are expecting!
