After prayerfully asking the Lord for guidance on a recent subject, three consecutive visions were shown. In one: Praying hands. In the other: A Bible. And in the third: A Hammer. When the visions were clearly understood, the following Word of Knowledge was then spoken: “Declare”.
Declaring the Visions
The Hammer represents GOD’S powerful, unadulterated and unbreakable Word! It deeply shatters all wrongful doctrine, all arrogance and defiance against HIM including all that is prophetically false. (Jeremiah 23:29) With that in mind, the visions are explained in HIS unbreakable Word:
Paul’s Teachings to Timothy
On the subject of Prayer, which has been a relevant topic in recent months, I was reminded of Apostle Paul’s instructions to Timothy:
Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time, for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle—I am speaking the truth in Christ and not lying—a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. (1 Tim. 2:1-7)
On the subject of Scriptures (Bible), I was also reminded of Apostle Paul’s instructions to Timothy:
I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all long suffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. (2 Tim. 4:1-5)
Every faithful Believer, regardless of the office or title he/she occupies, has the responsibility not only to pray for ‘everyone’ but also to share the unadulterated Word when the opportunity arises. Doing so will help advance GOD’S Kingdom and make for a healthier growing body of Believers on earth – and it is a big, big, world! During these latter days, Laborers are needed on many different fronts. But I can testify that in our small, crime-riddled, drugged, drunken and immorally- infested northern Canadian city alone, they are very, very few. For this reason and more, it is incumbent on the Believer to never miss the occasion to pray and witness when opportunity comes knocking! It bears noting that different ranks form one army: privates, privates second class, privates first class, specialists, corporals, sergeants, staff sergeants, sergeants first class, master sergeants, first sergeants, sergeant majors, command sergeants major and sergeants major. Likewise, there are many moving parts to the Church but we are still only one Body. And it belongs to the Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Handle it with care and truth! Praise and glory be to GOD!

Timothy – Meaning of Name: One Who Honors GOD.
As always, keep the Faith. And may the Peace of GOD keep you.
