June 2018 Prophetic Word: Warning. Wisdom. Work. – A Word by Emily Rose Lewis


The Lord began unveiling His thoughts to me for June 2018 by pointing out ants diligently working in the grass, some were scouting for food and others were carrying massive loads of provision back to their homes, each ant working together in unity to support the needs of the collective colony, somewhat like a ‘superorganism.’

A superorganism is described in Webster’s Dictionary as an organized society (as of a social insect) that functions as an organic whole.

June is the 6th month of the year and God being the clever Creator that He is often synchronizing numbers to make a point, gave me Proverbs 6:6 as a spring board for unwrapping the blessings He has prepared for the coming months.

‘Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!’ -Proverbs 6:6

For those that are willing to forget about themselves and all their of own interests, June will bring a wealth of opportunities for hard work. God wants His body to rise up and be energized to take hold of all of His promises both personally and corporately by working diligently in the specific purposes that have been individually assigned as the eyes, ears, nose, hands or feet of Christ’s body here in the earth.

We are in a season of new beginnings and open doors. New levels of glory are being accessed through the works that are evidence of a living faith. (James 2:26)

Many have already let go of the things that are behind that were hindering their forward progress and gone through the painful but necessary pruning process in order to bear the weight of the massive harvest of fruit that is ripening in its season.

Right now there is an outpouring of abundant provision that has been granted for the Kingdom work God has ordained for Christ’s body on the earth; a transference of all types of wealth is underway. There are no shortages. For those that want to take part in the harvest, to be entrusted with the responsibility of the great reaping of souls in the earth, it is imperative to work together synergistically as one organism moving towards God’s collective purposes.

Scarcity is not from God. Fullness of life is the portion of every follower of Jesus Christ.

Too many of God’s children are disillusioned by the lack they are experiencing in their lives and becoming bitter, even going so far as to blame God or malign His character through a bad attitude that reveals their heart believe’s He’s unjust. A revelation into the accusations that have been leveled against God’s character by unbelief will bring repentance, restoration in relationship, and divine alignment (or realignment) with the purposes of God.

Everything that God allows into the lives of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose are only allowed because He has an overarching plan to turn these things for the good of His beloved children and to bring glory to Himself.

Repentance from self-centered mindsets may be needed to prune away attitudes that will hinder growth and abundant life. God is delivering people from a, ‘What about me?’ mentality that causes people to refuse to be generous with their time, treasure and talent for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom.

If you are struggling with scarcity in your finances, body, soul or relationships read and meditate on these verses from Proverbs 6 this month and adjust your life accordingly. Be mindful of how you are spending your resources and energy. Proverbs 6:9-11 gives this warning against folly:

How long will you lie there, you sluggard?
When will you get up from your sleep?
A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest—
and poverty will come on you like a thief
and scarcity like an armed man.

Excellence comes only by hard work. Do your daily chores and tasks as unto the Lord. Keep what belongs to you clean and organized. Make lists of this months assignments and arrange them in order of kingdom importance, marking off what is most important first before preceding to the next thing. Keep an eternal perspective while considering that you are but one part of the whole. When you are lazy or slack in your part or are focusing your energy on wishing you had a different assignment, the whole body of Christ suffers.

What you DO with your time this month is of the utmost importance.

God is expanding your vision of personal purpose to more fully include the overall plan He has for His body in the earth. As you step into the stream of the Spirit that is moving with all of the working parts in Mind, to accomplish shared goals and purposes, there will be a powerful wind of spiritual and natural energy released to upgrade your power and potential.

As with the ant, God is anointing many with the ability to scout out resources to be used for the collective good. Creative ideas in business, ministry, art and investments are being downloaded into the hearts and minds of God’s children. He is handing out specific blueprints for the work to be done to fully produce what is needed to prepare for Christ’s return.

God is releasing great provision into the diligent hands of those that will give sacrificially when, where, how and how much He directs. He is building ‘Sewing Machines’ to sow into the great harvesting of souls that is now underway.

Do not allow fear of lack to hold you back from having an eternal mentality that refuses to become a reservoir of resources, but instead expend all that you have and all that you are for the glory of God.

You will walk in overflow abundance.

‘The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops.’
2 Timothy 2:6

In order to bring God’s will from heavenly realms (And that place where the Spirit resides on the inside of you) into the earthly realms (That are visible to the natural eyes) where people’s lives can be changed, hard work is required.

Loving feelings and good intentions can not be used as currency in the Kingdom of God.

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.
Matthew 11:12

Do you want to see the Kingdom of heaven manifest in your life and in the world? Be in earnest in your desire for heaven and the things of God. Press into your purpose. Deny self. Set your affections on things not of this world. Without zeal and fervency you will not be able to lay hold of and seize the Kingdom.

‘Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed…’
2 Timothy 2:15a

Like with the ants that are enabled by their Creator to carry more than 100 times their own body weight to bring food to the colony, God is pouring supernatural strength over His people to carry the great measure of provision that is needed for Kingdom purposes to be accomplished.

Prepare for the outpouring of spiritual and natural resources that God is releasing to those that are running the race to win the prize of an imperishable crown by adding works to your faith. June is a month not just to be what you were created to be but to do what you were created to do for the glory of God and the love of your fellow man.
