The Sound of Righteousness symbolizes the power and majesty of those functioning in the anointing of God, and the wisdom and strength they move in.
- 1 Kings 3:8-9 (NKJV) And Your servant is in the midst of Your people whom You have chosen, a great people, too numerous to be numbered or counted. Therefore give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?
- Hebrews 4:12 (CJB) See, the Word of God is alive! It is at work and is sharper than any double-edged sword — it cuts right through to where soul meets spirit and joints meet marrow, and it is quick to judge the inner reflections and attitudes of the heart.
- Revelation 19:11, 15 (NKJV) Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. …Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
A Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “I AM the Righteous Judge.”
Hebrews 10:30 (AMPC) For we know Him Who said, Vengeance is Mine [retribution and the meting out of full justice rest with Me]; I will repay [I will exact the compensation], says the Lord. And again, The Lord will judge and determine and solve and settle the cause and the cases of His people.
Beloved, I AM the righteous judge. I AM Elohim Mishpat (God of Judgment/Justice). Leave exercising judgment in My capable hands and simply focus your attentions on Me. Trust Me to know your causes and see the injustices done and to address them rightly. I see fullness of every situation and the intentions of each heart. I understand why each choice and action is made. I know when to extend grace and when to bring correction (and how to do so most effectively), trust My judgment.
Yielding to My judgment in no way gives a pass to those perpetrating injustice, it simply indicates your understanding that only I know how best to address it and that you trust Me to do so. Simply taking that stand is powerful warfare, for in doing so you declare I AM trustworthy and righteous, and you acknowledge My sovereignty. This both leads others by example and sends a powerful message to the kingdom of darkness making you a warrior of light – beautiful and trusting your King.
Another Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Harnessed Power.”
Colossians 4:6 (VOICE) When you speak the word, speak it gracefully (as if seasoned with salt), so you will know how to respond to everyone rightly.
Beloved, as you live your faith, let your life speak for itself. Resist the urge to “help” Me further the Kingdom by acting “on My behalf” without the unction of My Spirit. Passion for Me is vital, but passion alone isn’t enough. Cultivate wisdom, discernment, and understanding.
Then use that character to temper your zeal. A sawed off shot gun and a sniper rifle both have power, but only one is harnessed and has singular accuracy, which is power under control. So lay down your own agenda, yield to My leading, and allow My Spirit to guard your tongue, in doing so you become a powerful force for Me.
A Word called “Be My Covenant Defender” from Elisa Eaton of Waiting in the Wings is connected to this.
Psalm 69:9 (TPT) My love for you has my heart on fire! My passion consumes me for your house! Nothing will turn me away, even though I endure all the insults of those who insult you.
Beloved, attune your ear to My heart. Be so consumed with My Word and My standard of righteousness that our desires meld into one. Allow My passion to burn as a fire in your veins, and rise up as My covenant defender.
As you walk in My zeal and choose to remain united with Me, you will be moved to speak and act on My behalf. I have stirred a desire in your heart to hold up My Word as a standard and proudly lift it high no matter the opposition you might encounter. Yet true godly passion is balanced in its outworking. While zeal drives you to care for My heart and the advancement of My Kingdom, I urge you not to lose sight of yourself or your fellow man in the process. I call you to love yourself and your neighbor with the same fiery love you have for Me.
Ultimately, the fabric of My covenant is love and the foundation of righteousness is love. Love is what covers all sin, making a way for My children to be knit as one into the Body of Christ. Beloved, yield to My heart and the all-consuming passion of My nature. Be zealous with My zeal and allow My love, through you, to burn away the works of darkness.
Indeed, I have anointed you for this holy work. Just as a surgeon has skilled hands capable of removing disease while preserving life, so I have anointed and trained you for the healing work of My Body. I will give you wisdom and confidence to tear down the works of darkness while also caring for the hearts of My beloved ones. As My love comes to burn in every heart, all that will be left is the pure gold of My Kingdom on earth.
Proverbs 10:12 (AMPC) Hatred stirs up contentions, but love covers all transgressions.
1 Peter 4:8 (TPT) Above all, constantly echo God’s intense love for one another, for love will be a canopy over a multitude of sins.
A series of Prophetic Nuggets from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams are connected to this. They’re based on Wisdom as defined in James 3:
James 3:13-18 (VOICE): Who in your community is understanding and wise? Let his example, which is marked by wisdom and gentleness, blaze a trail for others. If your heart is one that bleeds dark streams of jealousy and selfishness, do not be so proud that you ignore your depraved state. The wisdom of this world should never be mistaken for heavenly wisdom; it originates below in the earthly realms, with the demons. Any place where you find jealousy and selfish ambition, you will discover chaos and evil thriving under its rule. Heavenly wisdom centers on purity, peace, gentleness, deference, mercy, and other good fruits untainted by hypocrisy. The seed that flowers into righteousness will always be planted in peace by those who embrace peace.
The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Demonstrate Godly Wisdom.”
James 3:13 (NLT) If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.
Beloved, lead by example, but do so as one who knows My ways that you may not lead others astray. Walk in righteousness – fully aligned with My Word. Do good and love well. Be a person of humility, and one who walks in honor.
See with My eyes and be lead by My Spirit. Be kind and long suffering. May you extend patience beyond even that which you’d hope to receive. Let all this fruit demonstrate your godly wisdom to choose to walk with Me.
The second Prophetic Nugget is called “Worldly Judgment is Flawed.”
James 3:14 (NLT) But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don’t cover up the truth with boasting and lying.
Beloved, resist the urge to “keep up with the Joneses,” or feel a need to put on a false front. Trust Me to lead you rightly and meet every need. Refuse to covet that which belongs to another. Instead rejoice with them, and be grateful for all you’ve been given.
There is no need to posture or lie to impress, for who would you seek to please above Me? Rather be singular in your focus. Keep your eyes and heart fixed on Me. Know that the world’s judgment is flawed, so refuse to curry its favor or seek its approval. I AM all you need.
The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Be Kingdom Minded.”
James 3:15 (NLT) For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic.
Beloved, love those I have placed in your life – both the lovable and the challenging. Encourage them and build them up. Seek out ways to support that which I have called them to. Trust that there is room for all of you in My plans. Refuse to allow your own needs and interests to be your sole focus.
Be Kingdom minded. Think of what is for the greater good. Walk in humble obedience, and speak words of life. Prophesy, beloved. As you show yourself to be an example of godly wisdom, you bring glory and honor to Me. Allow that to be its own reward.
The fourth Prophetic Nugget is called “Measure By My Standards.”
James 3:16 (NLT) For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.
Beloved, refuse to open the door for the kingdom of darkness. Those who succumb to jealousy and greed are not operating in My flow. Being obsessed with your own interests is counter to the way I move. If you are not working with Me, you’re working against Me. So refuse to take the bait.
Refuse to be drawn in by the world’s system. Refuse to fall prey to comparisons with others. Seek Me. Seek My plans for you. Be content, and overflow with gratitude. Each person has been given their role – their call, so seek to walk in the fullness of that which I’ve called you to.
Refuse to allow petty jealousies to distract you. Whose standard will you measure by? Mine is the only one that matters. So seek to fulfill what I have ordained for you with excellence and fullness of joy. Refuse to be derailed or drawn offtrack.
The fifth Prophetic Nugget is called “Simply Reflect Me.”
James 3:17 (NLT) But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.
Beloved, the fruit of true wisdom is sweet. It is easily recognizable, and tastes of Me. It is pure and cultivates harmony. It builds up and encourages that which is good. It is founded in truth and My Word. It isn’t self-seeking or unkind. It’s merciful, and encourages goodness.
Those who walk in this wisdom, seek to understand. They listen well – to men and to Me. They embrace that which is right, and inspire righteousness and mercy. They refuse to walk in judgment, but rather from a heart of love they seek to bring all into alignment with Me. They are genuine, and walk in sincerity. Their ultimate goal is to simply reflect Me.
The sixth Prophetic Nugget is called “Cultivate an Atmosphere of Peace.”
James 3:18 (NLT) And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.
Beloved, do more than simply walk in godly wisdom – cultivate it in those around you. Encourage them to bear fruit. Work together to walk in unity. Be intentional to inspire one another to pursue righteousness. Allow joy to be your strength, and share one another’s burdens.
For truly the Body of Christ is called to live in peace and love. You are called to strengthen one another and encourage one another towards that which is good. Create an atmosphere of peace. Reflect Me – YHVH Shalom, the Lord your peace. For living in this manner is the greatest testimony you can share and it is achieved without a word.
