One of the most unusual ways the Lord speaks to me is
through pantomime gestures. They are like signs that
display His Word. I have received these “Words” in two
ways. The first way is that they are totally involuntary
and instinctual, in other words without thought or
premeditated impulse. They are simply expressed through
me through some gesture or action.
These involuntary movements first found their expression
through me in intercession when I would be at prayer
meetings and suddenly I would burst out with some
unexpected movement. At first I really thought I had
gone bonkers. But soon after I realized His anointing
was so strong on me that I simply could not hold it back
even if I tried.
The first confirmation I received of this was at a
prayer meeting and suddenly I felt warrior expression
through my arms and hands. They did whirling like karate
movements up and down for a couple seconds. I had a
strong urge inside that I was wrestling with some
demonic spirit. As soon as I released this, one of our
pastors said, “Thank you!” I had no idea why she said
that. I was sitting right next to her when this
happened. Evidently she had arrived at prayer meeting
with a terrible migraine headache. The moment I released
the movements it left and did not return. She was
totally free! Of course this was His anointing within
me. I wish I could do that through choice!!!
Ps 144:1 NKJV
Blessed be the LORD my Rock, Who trains my hands for
war , And my fingers for battle -
2 Sam 22:33-35 NKJV
God is my strength and power, and He makes my way
perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and
sets me on my high places. He teaches my hands to make
war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
I received more confirmations to these strange prophetic
gestures through reading some of the visitations that
people have had when under His Spirit. I have read where
people have fallen under His power and are laying on the
floor in a line with their eyes closed. Suddenly the
line or several will all at once act something out as
His Spirit is upon them. They are doing this in unison
without even knowing it.
God used the OT prophets to live and act as signs to
represent His Word to the people. He still uses the
prophetic in the NT. These prophetic signs make
announcements to the spirit world. Demons are literal
and legal. They do not have any creative or
interpretive skills. They can only make a copy of
something that is already created, like a facsimile,
but can not create something brand new. They do not
understand the Words or mysteries of God until we place
meaning upon them.
God gives prophetic signs an authority in the spirit
realm. These signs, especially when mixed with faith and
understanding carry powerful weapons to the spirit
world, since they gain their knowledge and
understanding from us.
1 Cor 2:7-8 NLT
No, the wisdom we speak of is the secret wisdom of
God, which was hidden in former times, though he made it
for our benefit before the world began. 8 But the rulers
of this world have not understood it; if they had, they
would never have crucified our glorious Lord.
Eph 3:9-11 NKJV
…to make all see what is the fellowship of the
mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been
hidden in God who created all things through Jesus
Christ; 10 to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of
God might be made known by the church to the
principalities and powers in the heavenly places.
Rom 4:17 NAS
…as it is written, “A father of many nations have I
made you” in the sight of Him whom he believed, even
God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being
that which does not exist.
Acts 21:10-11 NLT
During our stay of several days, a man named Agabus,
who also had the gift of prophecy, arrived from Judea.
11 When he visited us, he took Paul's belt and bound his
own feet and hands with it. Then he said, “The Holy
Spirit declares, `So shall the owner of this belt be
bound by the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem and turned over
to the Romans.' “
• Samuel & Saul
1 Sam 15:27-28 NLT
27 As Samuel turned to go, Saul grabbed at him to try
to hold him back and tore his robe. 28 And Samuel said
to him, “See? The LORD has torn the kingdom of Israel
from you today and has given it to someone else-one who
is better than you.
1 Kings 11:30-31
Ahijah took the new cloak he was wearing and tore it
into twelve pieces. 31 Then he said to Jeroboam, “Take
ten of these pieces, for this is what the LORD, the God
of Israel, says: `I am about to tear the kingdom from
the hand of Solomon, and I will give ten of the tribes
2 Kings 13:15-18
Elisha told him, “Get a bow and some arrows.” And the
king did as he was told. 16 Then Elisha told the king of
Israel to put his hand on the bow, and Elisha laid his
own hands on the king's hands. 17 Then he commanded,
“Open that eastern window,” and he opened it. Then he
said, “Shoot!” So he did. Then Elisha proclaimed, “This
is the LORD's arrow, full of victory over Aram, for you
will completely conquer the Arameans at Aphek.
Then the LORD gave me another message: 4 “Take the
linen belt you are wearing, and go to the Euphrates
River. Hide it there in a hole in the rocks.” 5 So I
went and hid it at the Euphrates as the LORD had
instructed me. 6 A long time afterward, the LORD said to
me, “Go back to the Euphrates and get the linen belt
that I told you to hide there.” 7 So I went to the
Euphrates and dug it out of the hole where I had hidden
it. But now it was mildewed and falling apart. The belt
was useless. 8 Then I received this message from the
LORD: 9 “The LORD says: This illustrates how I will rot
away the pride of Judah and Jerusalem.
As these men watch, Jeremiah, smash the jar you
brought with you. 11 Then say to them, 'This is what the
LORD Almighty says: As this jar lies shattered, so I
will shatter the people of Judah and Jerusalem beyond
all hope of repair.
I sent my prophets to warn you with many visions and
Then the LORD said, “My servant Isaiah has been
walking around naked and barefoot for the last three
years. This is a sign-a symbol of the terrible troubles
I will bring upon Egypt and Ethiopia.
Son of man, take a sharp sword and use it as a razor
to shave your head and beard. Use a scale to weigh the
hair into three equal parts. 2 Place a third of it at
the center of your map of Jerusalem. After acting out
the siege, burn it there. Scatter another third across
your map and slash at it with a sword. Scatter the last
third to the wind, for I will scatter my people with the
sword. 3 Keep just a bit of the hair and tie it up in
your robe. 4 Then take a few of these
hairs out and throw them into the fire, burning them up.
A fire will then spread from this remnant and destroy
all of Israel.
2 When the LORD first began speaking to Israel
through Hosea, he said to him, “Go and marry a
prostitute, so some of her children will be born to you
from other men. This will illustrate the way my people
have been untrue to me, openly committing adultery
against the LORD by worshipping other gods.”
