Prophetic Word: Listen to the Rat-a-Tat-Tat of Progress!

Do you know the Lord is calling you to something, but you aren’t sure if, how, or when to proceed? If so, the Lord gave me a very encouraging prophetic word for you today!

In the Spirit, I heard the rat-a-tat-tat of drums.

They were not heavy drums, but snare drums: the drums used to assemble troops in parades. I thought this was odd, as I would typically hear heavy war drums in the Spirit.

So I asked the Lord why I heard these particular drums, and this is what He said:

“I am calling people out with huge destinies, but I am calling them in a different way than I used to. In these end times, people will have to decide to follow Me and My call on their lives with more stick-to-it-iveness than ever before. Warfare against them will be stronger than it has ever been in the history of the earth. So, each person will need to know beyond a shadow of a doubt what I have called them to do–and they will have to chase that call.

I am calling forth My sent ones, but I am not calling them loudly. Each person has to listen. Each person has to decide to pursue everything I have for them with all their heart.

It is going to take effort.

You will have to use creativity to arrive at the open doors I have for you. You will need to seek Me diligently AND FIRST every day. You will need to be brave and do things that no one has ever done before.

Doors are not going to open for these sent ones without effort.

The strongest callings require the biggest foundations. I am requiring effort from My sent ones with the most influential callings because I am teaching them to flex their muscles. No one can do it for them. Just like a butterfly must exercise his wings in order to escape his cocoon, each of these sent ones must flex their spiritual, physical, relational, and motivational muscles in order to fly.

The key is that I will be with each of My sent ones.

My Word is still true that, unless I build the house, they labor in vain that build it. So I will build the house through each of My sent ones. However, I will be using them as My hands and feet. Things will work–they know not how; they simply will know that it must be Me.

But it will still take effort. Without effort, people give up too easily. My sent ones cannot give up in this hour. Instead, each one must tune his or her ear into My frequency. You must listen for My still, small voice and follow My leading.

Push Me.

I want to do more on the earth, but I need you to push Me and give me permission to do what I want to do through your life. So rattle the gates of Heaven. Rattle the pillars of My temple with your prayers and fasting. Contend in the Spirit realm for more destiny, more calling, more opportunity, and more fruit from your work than you ever imagined.

It’s time to make progress toward your destiny, but you will have to choose.

If I pull you, you will be too weak. You will not be able to sustain what I want to do in and through you. So YOU will have to choose to push Me, and you will have to persevere. The biggest callings are the hardest to obtain in manifestation.

I will give you all you need, bit by bit.

Little by little I will drive them out before you. Little by little your destiny will come. Again, it’s all about the strength of the foundation. I need My strongest warriors right now–those who have been hidden away in My secret place the longest. Those who have become strong will do great exploits.

I am ready to perform those great exploits. Contend for them.

But part of contending is action, so pursue My high call on your life with all your heart. Fight through the turmoil. Press into everything you know I want you to do.

As you do so, you will find My hand was pushing you forward all along.

Remember My Word: ‘Choose ye this day whom ye will serve … But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord’ (Joshua 24:15).”

Wow! Does this word speak strongly to your heart? It sure speaks to me! If this message resonates with you, please leave a comment below!

  9. Wow! That surely touches my heart. At prayer meeting last week I clearly heard the Lord say He was calling people to a higher place in Him, to a deeper relationship with Him. He said some are heeding the call. Then He said, Heed My voice. This message is confirmation!

  15. Dear Jamie,
    I have never sent in comments to any of the words you have posted but I really felt that I needed to thank you and encourage you for this word!
    For me, This word was the most powerful word that I can remember receiving!

    This was like someone hit me with a baseball bat between the eyes.
    So many questions and confusion and seemed like never ending years of wilderness experience…of hearing God but not hearing him the way I wanted too…it was so hard to hear God clearly in the way I was used to….but now I see why…

    I cannot do justice in this note to express how ABBA just put all the pieces of my life puzzle together.

    Wow, thank you so much for posting this word!

  16. D. Graham says:

    Very encouraging word, it brings understanding to the intensity of the warefare I’m experiencing.

    Praise the Lord!!!!!

  19. Thank you, Jamie, for your prayer for unjust situations. I prayed it last night and I recieved a two week break from the problem. I had been telling God that I wanted to disobey Him. I don’t want to. I’ve read the consequences in His word, but I can’t continue with this situation. Now I have time to gather more strength and keep praying your prayer.

  20. Morning Jamie, this is an awesome word! Last night Father God confirmed it through the worship song, Spirit Break Out, by Kim Walker Smith. Just listen to it wearing headphones… Much love, Lee

  21. David Tetteh Dameh says:

    This prophetic message has come at the right, personal for me .once it was from the one who want us to go,I accept it. Oh God Almighty help me to accomblish these tasks. Amen

  22. 100% accurate Jamie! Very blessed to hear from God through you. Thank you and endless blessings and favour to you and your family. x

  23. elvina chetty says:

    AMEN, Bless you today for this Revelation, i have been praying earnestly for God to use me, make be HIS battle Axe, HIS been so Quiet, but the the spiritual attacks are flooding in, i Identified this with Gods Training, HE is preparing and equiping me for Greatness, you cant be used by GOD without first being tested by FIRE, So this confirms so much, and is in line with what i am currently meditating on. What screams out is seeking HIM FIRST THING EVERY MORNING. I fail terribly in this area, HE has been waking me up for almost a year now, the choice is mine, sleep and lose out, or rise up and be an Ambassador for CHRIST.

  24. Wow, this resonates with where I have been, but also with what I am facing. God is faithful. Thank you for this strong, encouraging word.

  25. Linda Davies says:

    Thank you so much Jamie 🙂

  26. Thanks Jammie , just saw awesome and it has touched me so much. … its not easy to be at the position of ” being Sent ” But God! !!!

  27. Yes Oh Wow!! Yesterday the lady at the bank & I were talking about Birthdays and she said her best years was in her 40’s & asked me when my best were. I said none in the past but right here and right now with God. She quoted “This is the Day This is the Day that the Lord has made We will rejoice and be glad in it!” I said “You were born for such a time as this!” She said ah Queen Esther. She also said that she needed to hear what I said about being in the present with God.This was a Divine appointment with God & Julie & I at the bank on my birthday. God gives such precious words and I do not usually say anything! God is building a foundation and I surely need to press into Him, He really does have a plan for my life. May I honor Him and Glorify & Exult Him in ALL the earth!

    1. Brenda, thank you so much for sharing your testimony! As I was reading your words “This is the Day, This is the Day” just leaped out at me! I forwarded this prophetic word of Jaime’s to my husband because it resonated so loudly with where we are at in God right now and as a I was typing that email I typed out “living out living out Day by Day”, referring to our callings. I hadn’t typed living out twice and when I tried to change the D’s in day to lowercase it wouldn’t let me change it! I knew that was the Holy Spirit saying double anointing and double portion will be given as we obey and submit to His leading everyday! God will honor our faith if we just press into Him even more during this time! It may feel difficult at times, but remember that God is giving us a double anointing during this time to persevere! He definitely has a plan for your life and during this time of growing and stretching our faith God will reveal to you and me, and all of His children who are seeking His face what He needs us to do to be His hands and feet for His Kingdom! This is the Day to start seeking Him and we shall seek Him Day by Day, little by little, and He shall reveal His plan and make His mysteries known to us! God will honor your faithfulness Brenda, just keep pressing on! I’m praying for you and everyone as we are in this journey of discovering more about God everyday. …and by the way Brenda, I’m in my early 40’s and this is the best time of my life with God! I’m learning and growing in Him like never before and seeing things manifest that He promised years ago – and I got saved in my teen years! We were indeed born for such a time as this!

      I also want to say “Thank you” to Jaime for sharing this on time prophetic word. It really gives perspective to the spiritual and natural shifts that are happening right now and gives us wisdom on how to react to these changes and also serves as confirmation to the utterance of the Holy Spirit. It is so encouraging to know that there are anointed vessels like you who obey God and share His words with His people and who are doing the work that you’ve been called to do. You are such an inspiration and I thank God for you and your ministry, and your transparency!

  28. Elizabeth Tuinidau says:

  38. Emma obeng- Tuudah says:

    What a powerful word from the Throne Room. I felt the fathers love as I read through. It felt like God was talking to me face to face, telling me what’s on my mind and giving me answers. Ancient words ever true.
    God bless you Jammie

  39. The message above strongly relates to me. I am ambitious to fully trust in God for his future plans for me financially and otherwise, but my faith sometimes dwindle, I am praying that God will build my trust and faith in him and for his guidance, and protection over my life, my daughter’s life and my family on the whole.

  40. Dierdre Price says:

    Amen. I believe GOD.

  41. Yes Jamie,
    Thanks for sharing. I have been on backsliding bench which I’m working hard to run away from, i think that’s my message.
    I’m captivated by laziness to pray, i hope this will strengthen me.
    Father, may your Holy spirit strengthen me for i know i can’t do this on my own.

  42. Sandra wood says:

    Jamie this is absolutely TRUE and pertains to me.Just the other day I had a word with my Pastor about my thoughts of dedication to the Lord for the past two years and unable to do so I thought may be its not the right time,but He said thats the work of the devil. So he said this is the right time and I need to put my thoughts into action and the rest will fall into place. Please pray for me and my family.Thx alot for your love and guidance.

  43. Many times we feel inadequate or just to small to matter in a world dominated by sin. We forget who we are in messiah and who HE is calling us out to be. We forget we have the same HOLY SPIRIT as joshua, the same atonement as paul, the same mediator as peter and the same GOD as abraham. These were ordinary people like u n me yet the difference is they stepped up and put their faith in action. The question is will we put ours in action?????

  44. This was encouraging and I really like the battle map idea. I believe my promise is already fulfilled and It is in the waiting for my husband to join since it is a joint ministry. I like the way the map can encircle where the enemy has been hood winking things and pull down the barricades to open the field! Good one

  45. Thanks Jamie,
    I believe this is for me.

  46. Thank you, pastor Jamie. FATHER GOD is speaking loud and clear to me through this message. I want to be obedient and do what HE says and HE can use me to HIS Wil and way. May GOD continue to use you as you are a vessel to HIM..may FATHER GOD bless you and everyone connected to you, Amen!

  47. This is so timely and CONFIRMATION!!!!!! I know God is calling me out and I’m telling you, some things I just didn’t understand, like for instance, how great the attacks has been against me and from someone so close to me. God has been giving me little bit by little bit the pieces to the puzzle and this just clarified so much more. Thank you for making your life God’s Assignment and to be the answer so many others need, May God continue to bless you and your household and ministry.

  48. I am struggling with so many things the warfare on my life is just horrific. This article does resonate with me but I am so tired and afraid I won’t have the strength to endure….God help me!!!!

  49. Elizabeth Tuinidau says:

    Praise God. I have a feeling that My God is preparing something for me.I received it Amen!!!Prefect timing and God’s timing..Praise GOD♥️♥️♥️🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  50. Father thank you for this prophetic word. I surrender to your will for my life that you push me into being the woman of God you want me to be in your Kingdom. Thank you God and Jamie 🙏🏾🙌🏾😭
