The dark room where I was practicing to speakliving words of authority and judgments refers topractice prophetic judgment and to exerciseauthority in obscurity of a closet.
But you, when you pray, go into your room
and when youhave shut your door, pray to your Father who is inthe secret place
and your Father who seesin secret will reward you openly
(Romans 2:4-11).It is evident that there will be a people that willspeak and act with supernatural authority.However, the dream suggests that these propheticskills must be practiced that by reason of use wehave our spiritual gifts and senses trained anddeveloped.It will be like in the days of Moses and Aaron whenthey performed judgment and signs and wondersduring Israel’s exodus and like in the days of theElijah when he called down fire from heaven andshut up the heavens that it might not rain.It is not about the development of spiritual skillsonly but also the maturing in our relationship withthe Lord to discern and exercise restraint; not tooverdo judgment but to remember mercy. The whole incident of the two hostile men thatapproached me was a demonstration of what it willbe when we will be able soldiers of the Lord.We will walk in the ministry of judgment.
Do younot know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Do you not knowthat we shall judge angels?
(1 Corinthians 6:2-3a).Paul was walking in this ministry in his time.
For Iindeed, as absent in body but present in spirit,have already judged (as though I were present) himwho has done such a deed
(1 Corinthians 5:3).
