I woke up the other day with a picture burning meaning into my heart. I saw the Bride of Christ lying on an examination table waiting for the "The Great Physician" to come in. Then He came in and methodically and strategically began to give an "adjustment" to the body. I saw the face of the Bride cringe with pain at every forceful impact.
Then the Lord began to speak to me about what this picture meant and what He was doing with the Bride. God HAS BEEN giving an "adjustment" to His bride. Whole churches have been on the table getting blunt force applied to them, individuals have been under pressure, and even regional areas have had realignment.
Now I'll be honest, I have never been to a chiropractor. My spiritual mom from my home town went quite regularly and she would try and explain to me what it was like. She would be in constant pain for some time and then go in for an adjustment. The adjustment would hurt during the process, but after a day or two she felt tons better. So the adjustment wasn't about relieving pain in the current moment, it was a longer term solution.
I then went and read this article on "adjustments" on the internet: "Chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which trained specialists (chiropractors) use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The goal of chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, is to correct structural alignment and improve your body's physical function." (Mayo Clinic)
Perhaps you've been in this season of adjustment, maybe you're coming out of it, maybe you're entering into it. No matter where you are listen to what God is saying. Yes there is some blunt force, yes there is some pressure, yes there is pain, BUT He is "correcting the structural alignment" of His bride and it will "improve the Body's physical function".
God is literally "adjusting" the body. He's having us conquer fears, doubts, unbelief, unforgiveness, past hurts, past disappointments, any character issue that doesn't look like Him.
THE ORPHAN SPIRIT IS BEING ERADICATED. Which means no more inferiority, no insecurity, no jealousy, no judgement, none of the "why me's?", none of the "what if's?", the past is washed away, we'll celebrate each other's victories, we'll have faith for our breakthroughs, we'll know Him as Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Shalom, Jehovah Rapha! Provider, Peace, Healer, Restorer, Redeemer, Lover, Friend.
He's adjusting your placement giving new assignments, new titles, new locations, and placing the body in Family around the globe. He's getting ready to pour out new gifts and greater levels of the gifts we already have.
It's important to note that He is the Specialist. He knows exactly what He's doing. He sees the enemy's attacks as well. Have no fear, our Physician is incredibly skilled! He can heal the pain, He can redeem every wrong situation, He can adjust things we didn't even know needed to be adjusted, He will do this with tenderness and care, but that doesn't mean there won't be some pain.
I'm telling you it may feel EXTREMELY painful right now, but the alignment and improved physical function is coming! It's right around the corner. HOLD FAST! STAND STRONG! If you're already experiencing the breakthrough then lift up the arms of those around you!
IT IS TIME FOR THE BODY TO LOVE EACH OTHER AS THEY LOVE THEMSELVES! Jesus was trying to emphasize the picture, YOU. ARE. ONE.
Be Blessed, J. Tate
Wow friends. What a mighty powerful weekend we had at Jesus Awakening conference. I am not exaggerating when I say that my LIFE WAS ALTERED! I had a powerful encounter and some crazy breakthroughs and it's been testimony after testimony since, I can't wait to share it all with you! We also saw deaf ears open, a lady walk out of the meeting who couldn't walk coming in, a child taken up to heaven, tons more healing, and of course my favorite thing, just an overwhelming saturation of the Presence of God. Thank you again, for supporting me in all that I do. MY COMMUNITY IS THE BEST!
