In November, I heard the Lord say, "The prophetic movement is facing a Humpty Dumpty moment."

You may think, "What a strange thing to hear." I thought so, too. But upon prayer and exploration of Humpty Dumpty, it's certainly fitting.

Humpty Dumpty is a character in a Mother Goose nursery rhyme first printed in 1810. Lewis Carroll's book, Alice Through the Looking Glass made the rhyme famous. But the rhyme dates further back, as far as the 1600s.

When the Lord showed me in April 2016 the next five years were vital for the prophetic movement, I was overwhelmed. I thought, "What can I possibly do to change this?
