"The Platform Without Power" - A Prophetic Dream

EZEKIEL 33:32-33"And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not. 33) And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them."

The Word of the LORD as it came to me on August 14, 2013 at 5:28pm Eastern Standard Time:

"Son of man those in the spotlight have taken the platform without power. They are only a sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal, but they have no real connection to the source of the sound and are merely imitating what they have heard and seen. They are unable to produce a genuine sound from Heaven because I AM not backing them nor do they speak for me. They are fraudulent peddlers of themselves that have not entered into or been invited into my council/counsel. They have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof. They arrange meetings and calls to draw a following to themselves, and not to do ministry for the benefit of others and to expand my Kingdom in the earth. Do not join yourself to them nor fellowship with them, or you will be a partaker in their evil deeds and an accomplice in their corruption, says your Lord God Yeshua HaMashiyach."

JEREMIAH 5:13-14"And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them. 14) Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them." 

The LORD also said to me, "What you are doing in your ministry is producing a "genuine sound" from the Holy Ghost that the LORD is pleased with unlike many others." I believe that this was not only said to me for my benefit but also for others to whom this message is also intended. This is why I am sharing it now as I feel led of the Spirit of God. These words may also be personal for you who are reading this. Now my dream I had a while back makes more sense. The mention of names and places in the dream is not an indictment of those mentioned, but they are symbols which represent something that can be easily identified for the purpose of clearly communicating the message by the LORD. Neither is it an attempt to compare one's self to others as some may wrongly think. God doesn't see things the way we do, nor is he in admiration or caught up in the personalities of others like many of us are. What appears to be success in the eyes of mankind can also be epic failure in the eyes of the Most High. To think that persons or places are of such lofty esteem that they can't be used by God as he so desires in a dream to communicate his divine will is to indict one's own self in the judgment of another by having respect of persons based on perceived status or advantage. JUDE 1:16; "These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage." Here is the dream below:

"Early on the morning of June 12, 2013 I had a quite memorable dream. I was in Dallas, Texas at the "Potter’s House" Church pastored by Bishop T.D. Jakes, and was called up on the platform with other ministers before what appeared to be a full crowd. I was the first to walk up and across the platform and then the other ministers followed in procession. As we stood there I began to notice that the other ministers began to shift positions as if they were fighting for position among themselves, but it was done ever so subtly as if they were simply sliding one person out of place and the next person moved over into their place while the other minister was shifted behind them to the back. Before I knew it I was shifted into the back of the other ministers and was being blocked from view where I could neither see or be seen while the others stood in front of me like a wall. Just then a boy was brought to the stage like platform who wanted to receive the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as in the Holy Scriptures. He was being escorted by another minister and led almost as if he needed help. By this time Bishop Jakes was also coming upon the platform, and was following the boy and the escorting minister at a rapid pace as if being left behind and trying to catch up to them. They made a beeline towards me and the small crowd of ministers that were blocking me from being seen out front suddenly parted, and the minister brought the boy directly to me for me to pray for him to receive the Holy Ghost with Bishop Jakes in close pursuit. The escorting minister left the boy with me and went and took his place among the other ministers on the platform, and I didn’t see him again.

I had the young boy raise his hands towards heaven and began to pray with him. As I was praying with him Bishop Jakes was standing behind and off to the side of the boy also trying to pray with him, almost as if trying to run slight interference while everyone else just watched on. It wasn’t long before Bishop Jakes gave up and said, "You continue with him." He then went and sat down in his chair on the platform with sweat coming down his face as if he was exhausted and couldn’t do anything more. I continued to pray with the boy and give him instructions to praise the Lord and encourage him in his faith. As I did this I noticed the boy seemed as if he had miraculously grown into a strong young man and was wearing a blue two piece suit. He had his hands raised up and tears were streaming down out of his eyes and down his face as he called out to God, and then he began to speak in other tongues very fluently as the Holy Ghost fell upon him. I was the only one who could hear him over all the noise that was being made around us and because of my close proximity to him. As he was speaking I gently directed him over by Bishop Jakes so that he could also hear him speak for a witness. Bishop said that he heard him and then surprisingly told me to announce to everyone what had just transpired rather than doing it himself. 

The crowd was already seemingly on edge and began to shout even before I made the announcement of what the Lord had just done in the life of the young man; so I had to announce it twice, and the second announcement didn’t seem to get the same reaction as the 1st from certain people once I clearly told them what had happened. Most folks still rejoiced except for the ministers who looked quite unemotional and stoic. As I went back to where the ministers were standing I was again standing in the front but all of a sudden they tried to push me to the back again and this time it was more violent and less subtle than before. However, this time I felt prompted of the Holy Ghost and didn’t allow them to push me to the back. I forcefully pushed the ministers out of the way who were trying to move me out of my place and told them to their faces to move out of the way and not to push me again. They looked halfway between puzzled and frightened but they moved and seemingly went to the back behind me as I stood my ground and stayed in place; the end. Shalom." 

As I contemplated on this dream for quite a while the Lord began to give me the interpretation. Many who have been in the spotlight of men for quite some time have drawn closer to the world as they have become more popular, and have gotten further away from God then they or those following them are truly aware of because they are deceived by their own vain glory. They are no longer a threat of note to Satan, or of real benefit to the Kingdom of God like they once were spiritually. They have prostituted themselves and compromised both their salvation and God's standards. The crowds may still follow them because of their gift, which still works to some degree, but is diminished in it's effectiveness against the enemy because the Devil now controls it and them. 1st JOHN 2:19; "They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us." Many ambitious ministers desire to attain the same status as them and feel privileged to be in their company. They too are becoming more ineffective against the works of darkness for the Kingdom of God by these associations, and so much so to the point of being spiritually impotent in being unable to help others be saved and step into their God ordained destiny. This can be hard to discern for the emotional, immature, vain, selfishly ambitious, and superficial regardless of position or time in a church, but the difference can be seen by those truly walking in the Spirit who know the Word of God. God has made me a true & authentic voice with a genuine sound able to minister grace to those who receive it, and with real power in the Holy Spirit through the prophetic process he has taken me through in my own life so that I may help others grow and develop to their full potential in GOD. I'm not the only one, and he is doing the same to others also. Let the LORD mold you into the instrument of his desire for his glory and you will reap the eternal reward for your service.

ISAIAH 41:15"Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff."  

There is a changing of the guard in which the greatest among us will come from the least among us who are relatively unknown just as the Lord said. They don't desire fame, nor the platform but the LORD will position them in such a way that who they are in him can't be denied. Neither Elijah the prophet or John the Baptist sought the spotlight or the platform, but they brought the nation of Israel and all of Jerusalem to the wilderness and away from the places that seemed more convenient like today's "mega churches" and auditoriums so that the true power of God could be witnessed and that the unadulterated Word of the LORD might be heard (Read: 1st KINGS 18 & MATTHEW 3). YAH (GOD) will do so again before all because his true messengers will not seek to take glory for themselves but glorify HIM alone for the wondrous and mighty works he performs through them and the word he speaks by them. Many of them are already in ministry and working for the LORD but are not known to the masses because they don't run in the same circles or make the same compromises others in the spotlight have made to get there. Many will hear them but will not truly receive or perceive them because they are not like the others who have sold out to Satan and the world. The LORD has molded them through many trials and great pressure to prove them in secret as if working on top secret weapons. These genuine & authentic messengers of his which he is bringing forth will operate supernaturally in this present age as in the days of the first church during the time of the original apostles of Christ. They will minister with a tangible manifestation of the power & word of God that will be clearly seen to make the distinction between the true servants of the Almighty and the false; of whom many were once genuine but have gone astray from the truth to serve their own agendas and not the Lord's as did the prophet Balaam.

2nd PETER 2:15-16"Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16) But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet."

After I had written the above dream down I then noticed the word "council" and that it is different from the word"counsel", so I asked the LORD what did he mean exactly, just in case I wrote it wrong, and he said he means them both. I was then instructed to make the correction to "council/counsel". Those who desire and seem to have the platform are not appointed by Him, nor have been given access to his "secret place of the Most High" to know His mind in "Spirit and in Truth". The LORD said they have never "dwelt" in his secret place but have only been visitors & strangers as if they were tourists or spies who have only gleaned from the things which they could pick up from the outside trying to look in by their own intellectual gifts, and from others. PSALM 91:1; "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." To "dwelleth" as the scripture states means to constantly live before and be in the face of the Lord God in his secret "counsel" and on his appointed "council" as a privilege of true covenant relationship and right standing with YAH himself through Yeshua HaMashiyach (Jesus the Messiah/Christ). If these false messengers manifest any power at all it is not of the LORD, and is intended to deceive others into believing them. The Lord can bless "in spite of" as well as "because of" for the sake of the people who are misled by these "wolves in sheepskins". God Almighty has declared them "frauds" and not the genuine article as they may appear. DON'T BE DECEIVED! 2nd CORINTHIANS 11:14-15"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." GOD will have the final say, and he will also severely judge them for their "apostasy" (a departure from truth which leads other astray into damnation, and is done knowingly so with indifference to the truth). A "true worshipper" always seeks to put the LORD on display and not themselves. ~ I.J. West

JOHN 4:23-24; "But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24) God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."

  1. You speak forth an important Word, here, Dr. West. Yes! Yes! Yes! "the greatest will come from the least" ~ "they don't desire fame nor the platform" ~ "his true messengers will not seek to take glory for themselves but glorify Him alone" ~ "the Lord will position them" ~ You mention the "mega" churches, such as have coffee bars, huge sanctuaries, the most modern technology and video equipment. And, dear sir, how many homeless and hungry children could have been assisted with the money spent on such? Your word truly speaks to the times we are in. Bless you, Brother!
