South Korea: Purity of the New vs. Pride

In the next few weeks, I’m going to increasingly focus on sharing prophecies instead of prophetic teaching. This prophetic word was written in collaboration with my friends Chris Henstone, Tania Angel, Sue Ormerod, Beverley Williams, and Terri Russell.

The Spirit of the Lord says, “South Korea, I call you persevering and trustworthy. However, so that you can model purity in the national Church, national Church, the Fashion Industry, and the national Military, I am coming to dismantle your pride.”

CHURCH LEADERS: Firstly to the Christian leaders in Seoul and to the leaders in the capital cities of provinces, I am calling you into immediate private repentance for lust for power through platform, financial control, and competition with your neighbors. In the place of pride, I am coming to renew your childlike humility and consecration (Matthew 18:1-5). As part of this process, you will have fresh eyes to discern and dismantle unhealthy power dynamics, false humility, stale traditionalism, and mechanical  structures that do not serve my Kingdom (Revelation 3:18).  Beware of the temptation to paralysis, apathy, hopelessness, and fear of change! The outworking of your private repentance will be public repentance (James 4:10). While this process may initially seem daunting, I have not come to bring you death but life. I will not abandon you; don’t fear public disgrace! I will sow new life and hope through your confession. Repentance will carry ease without condemnation because it is from me and not of this world (Philippians 3:20).  As you speak freely; multiplied freedom, life, supernatural harvest will follow and reform the church and society.  

ALL CHURCH: National South Korean Church, I call you my sharp, precise snipper intercessors. I have given the Korean Church the key fervent intercession. You are like a targeted snipper you hit and don’t miss! I am calling you collectively out of staleness and into daily consecration (Romans 12:1). While your previous prayer intercessory movements have given you a reputation for being awake, you have given yourselves over to slumber! I  have come to wake you up! My grace is coming to you as increased awareness of your declarations, the inconsistency of your travail, a sense of purposelessness, and hunger for innocence. I have not awakened you to antagonize your longing, but I am making you hungry and thirsty so that you will seek me and be satisfied (Matthew 5:6). As you meet me on an individual level, I will purify and consecrate your words so that I can raise up increasingly pure-hearted Nabi prophets within your nation (Matthew 5:8). I was not able to do this before because you have recognized the power of your words and have in specific moments partnered with self-cursing.

As a reward for greater consecration, I will pour out various gifts. Out of the intercessory renewal movement, I will equip your saints for warfare, similar to the work of Lou Engle. Out of increased consecration and hunger, I will equip your body for increased bible teaching anointing, similar to the work of Watchman Nee. Just as perseverance and intimacy with me catalyzed the ministry of these men, so it will be for you. Out of intimacy, your private worship will allow your nation to be in pace with the communal worship movement I send over Asia and globally in the next 10 years. I am also calling for my international body to provide back up and come to the aid of the South Korean intercessors as the nation is shifted. You will see that I will organically align you to keep pace with the Churches of your neighbors. It will come through unity in me and not striving. Finally, I will send a grassroots house church movement led by students (18-25s). As students are led by humility and hunger into leadership, they will model humility in community to the Church. Their friendship carries the breaker anointing for healing imitation and collaboration in your nation (1 Corinthians 11:1). From a place of healthier community relationships, I will be able to send more accuracy in prophesy and words of knowledge, as well as more powerful examples of social service. Across your country, you will see the firstfruits of this movement within 3 years, but expect to see the fullness of it within a decade.

CHURCH IN SOCIETY: I am calling you to be Church outside the traditional church. Your cultural identity is about understanding who I am. Within the next 3 years, watch as I raise up consecrated Christian leaders within the Fashion and Textiles industry to carry this consecration into the marketplace! This will take place in the 3 Southernmost Provinces (Jeollabuk, Jeollanam, and Gyeongsangnam). I have not called you to copy the perverse sexualized styles of Japan (Ezekiel 16:51-52), but out of your insecurity, pride, and lack of identity, you intended to outdo them! If you allow me to restore and renovate your sense of personal and national identity, I will favor you to lead in purity (Matthew 5:14) within East Asian and Southeast Asian fashion. I will raise fashion designers who create designs that carry traditional themes but with new forms and shapes. Based on their significance to your nation’s past, red (deliverance) and white (purity) colors will characterize this move. I will greet Koreans as the pure “People in White”(Ephesians 5:27, Galatians 5:1), and you will wear mantles of deliverance (Isaiah 1:18). Do not be afraid to stand out, and do not cling to stale forms of national tradition. As the Church models true humility, you will experience this humility as a force that purifies and simplifies the hierarchical nature of your country’s fashion employment structure. You will no longer compete in a parallel (peers) or vertical fashion (subordinates, employers), but you will collaborate to share and complexify similar forms. Instead of imitation, you will robustly create together!

As unrelated as it may seem, purity and collaboration in relationships within the fashion industry will influence the structure of the Korean National Military. From a renewed and embodied sense of Korean national identity, I will dismantle pride that feeds the unnecessary, obstructionist bureaucracy in the Korean military. Through these fashions, I will teach you that in my Kingdom, purity of heart and simplicity lead to greater authority.”

Hello! Formerly of Kansas and Washington, D.C., I am an emerging voice in Holy Spirit-led education reform and youth ministry. I present these materials with an explicit focus on the interdenominational, international, charismatic Church. Check out more on my journey with prophetic ministry, doctoral study, and travel through my end-of-month Monthly Summaries. I take Jesus's invitation to welcome children in his name (Luke 9:48) and Jesus's exhortation to become like children (Mathew 18:3) literally! In order to shape the world well for adults, we must serve the youngest among us so that we will truly understand who we are as sons and daughters (2 Corinthians 6:18).]
