HEARTLAND PROPHETIC COUNCIL HEART STATEMENT
…for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Matthew 12:34 KJV
The responsible brothers and sisters of Heartland Prophetic Council, in response to questions concerning our beliefs and practices are issuing this statement to clarify our ministry model. We are a prophetic servant community who seek to serve and build up all men by living before them a Christ centered example of unconditional love, operating in the Spirit of prophesy, directing all men to Jesus the Saviour of the world, the Son of God and the true Spirit of prophesy (Revelation 19:10 KJV). Our present truth (2nd Peter 1:12 KJV) understanding is that the Spirit of prophecy, is Jesus testimony of what He accomplished on the cross when he was given by God as a Son (Isaiah 9:6a; John 3:16) to take away the sins of the world. Jesus while on the cross took all of God’s judgments and wrath upon Himself for our trespasses and became the propitiation (Romans 3:25-26; 1st John 2:2 & 4:10 KJV) for all of mankind’s sin. That is the testimony of Jesus Christ which is the Spirit of prophecy.
The members of Heartland Prophetic Council as we are moved by that same Spirit of prophecy speak this message. In 2nd Corinthians 5:19 (KJV) the Spirit has revealed that… God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation… that word we now prophesy to individuals, regions and countries!
Our Founder and spiritual father, Walter Waller, was given a vision for a Council of prophetic brothers and sisters who come together for the purpose of hearing and seeing the Heart of our Father. As faith comes by hearing and as we see what the Father is doing, through the Holy Spirit concerning all the families of the earth, we are determined to implement what we have seen and heard. Beginning in the Heartland of the United States, first in Missouri, the Council members individually hear and see what the Spirit is revealing for the purpose of obedience to the faith (Romans 16:26). We believe that Jesus Christ builds His church upon the rock of revelation given to each individual (Matthew 16:18). We obey! He builds!
Heartland Prophetic Council was incorporated in the State of Missouri in the spring of 2010 and from that time we have endeavored …to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of [and produced by] the Spirit in the binding power of peace… (Ephesians 4:3) with those within HPC and those without. We do this by holding monthly Prophetic Encouragement Events and by participating in home groups around the state as we each function in our ministry gifting.
Walter could have searched the scriptures to support why the Heartland Prophetic Council conducts our ministry in the manner that we do but instead he waited upon the direction of the Spirit and he was given several passages of scriptures from the Amplified translation that the Holy Spirit wanted to be used in our statement. (These scripture references given by the Spirit are highlighted in blue.)
Our statement is summed up with the scriptures that the Spirit of wisdom and revelation (Ephesians 1:17 KJV) brought to Walter beginning in Ephesians 4:11-13…
11And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers. 12His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church), 13[That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.
In 2009 the Spirit revealed to Walter that it was time for believers to come into agreement with Romans 12:2, 10 and 16 and he shared that vision wherever and whenever he ministered:
2Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. 10Love one another with brotherly affection [as members of one family], giving precedence and showing honor to one another. 16Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty (snobbish, high-minded, exclusive), but readily adjust yourself to [people, things] and give yourselves to humble tasks. Never overestimate yourself or be wise in your own conceits.
Walter’s vision began to take shape as the truth that the perfecting and full equipping of the saints was only possible through the process of the renewing of the mind as we love each other as the one family of God. This love never fails because… Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. 1st Corinthians 13:7
This process of the renewing of the mind, as revealed to Paul by the Spirit and recorded for our learning in Ephesians 4:22-25, 32 is very practical:
22Strip yourselves of your former nature [put off and discard your old unrenewed self] which characterized your previous manner of life and becomes corrupt through lusts and desires that spring from delusion; 23And be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude], 24And put on the new nature (the regenerate self) created in God’s image, [Godlike] in true righteousness and holiness. 25Therefore, rejecting all falsity and being done now with it, let everyone express the truth with his neighbor, for we are all parts of one body and members one of another.32And become useful and helpful and kind to one another, tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving-hearted), forgiving one another [readily and freely], as God in Christ forgave you.
Only in accepting each person as a member of the Father’s family can produce the loving atmosphere where we may grow into …the measure of the fullness of the stature of the Christ!
This unconditional acceptance is THAT love that never fails as recorded in 1st Corinthians 13:5-8:
5It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. 6It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. 7Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. 8Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]…
As we at HPC believe the words that have gone out over His people through the prophetic words Christ in us has spoken, we continue to believe the very best of every person. As we see them through our Father’s eyes and unconditionally love them they learn to be imitators of their Father as written in Ephesians 5:1-2:
1THEREFORE BE imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father]. 2And walk in love, [esteeming and delighting in one another] as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a slain offering and sacrifice to God [for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance…
Love demands that we judge righteous judgment. Jesus, the Head of the church, defined righteous judgment for us in John 7:24 (KJV);
24Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
The Father also revealed this to the prophet Samuel as it is written in 1st Samuel 16:7 (KJV):
7But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
As we continue to esteem and delight in one another by speaking the truth in love, thereby judging righteous judgment, we grow up into Him. This is allowing mercy to rejoice over the judgments of man (James 1:13 KJV). We hold and honor the Head, believing the spirit of prophecy, which is the testimony of Jesus concerning each person (Revelation 19:10 KJV) …14from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. 15But, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. (Ephesians 4:15-16 KJV)
The above wisdom has come to Heartland Prophetic Council through revelation from the Father into His ways by emphasizing the love relationship, first toward God, then toward our neighbor. (Matthew 22:37-42 KJV) We all have fallen short of this perfect love relationship but we are pressing in daily that we may be continually built up in Him becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith:
3In Him all the treasures of [divine] wisdom ([comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God) and [all the riches of spiritual] knowledge and enlightenment are stored up and lie hidden.4I say this in order that no one may mislead and delude you by plausible and persuasive and attractive arguments and beguiling speech. 5For though I am away from you in body, yet I am with you in spirit, delighted at the sight of your [standing shoulder to shoulder in such] orderly array and the firmness and the solid front and steadfastness of your faith in Christ [that leaning of the entire human personality on Him in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness]. 6As you have therefore received Christ, [even] Jesus the Lord, [so] walk (regulate your lives and conduct yourselves) in union with and conformity to Him. 7Have the roots [of your being] firmly and deeply planted [in Him, fixed and founded in Him], being continually built up in Him, becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and abounding and overflowing in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 2:3-7:
Our faith in Christ and in His people is based on the above scriptures as He leads us to do all things without grumbling and complaining and faultfinding as written in Philippians 2:14-15:
14Do all things without grumbling and faultfinding and complaining [against God] and questioning and doubting [among yourselves], 15That you may show yourselves to be blameless and guiltless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish (faultless, unrebukable) in the midst of a crooked and wicked generation [spiritually perverted and perverse], among whom you are seen as bright lights (stars or beacons shining out clearly) in the [dark] world…
We believe this to be the New Testament church. It is freeing not confining; it is exhilarating and not depressing. It is full of the life of God and creates an expectancy of the Spirits’ leading. We can trust and be transparent, instead of hiding and fearful, of being exposed. Often we have been shut down and allegedly disqualified because we could not measure up to men’s laws. Those who don’t take the time to know us or establish a network of family to disciple us can not father us. We do not believe in sloppy grace which means we can do anything and it’s sanctioned by the leadership. Any behavior that does not please the Father is not acceptable. Why? Because it does not please Him. All who do not rest in the Fathers sovereign position as the living God, who has the ultimate say over all men’s lives, will build pseudo authority structures that use law to control. For the law results in divine wrath. But where there is no law there is no transgression of it either Romans 4:15. It will usually be taken from the Bible but it is used to limit men’s faith and beliefs and not free them to step out in the prophetic life style we are all called to live. A prophetic life style will bring a vibrantly alive personal relationship with our Father God.
Walter asked the Father for confirmation on what he believed Father was speaking to him in HPC’s Heart Statement that you are reading. Walter met a person this week that had this motto tattooed over their heart:
They must find it difficult…
Those who take the authority as the Truth instead of the Truth as the authority
Our Father God is the authority because He is the Truth. As we live in families and intimate accountability relationships we will not be deceived but be led by the Holy Spirit into all His Truths.
Heartland Prophetic Council is a New Testament apostolic covering who awaken the unsaved with unconditional love. As we walk with them they want to be saved. We awaken the saved and disciple those on how to love and be loved based on Fathers heart of love. We awaken them to their gifts and callings and walk with them into home fellowships. We awaken the five fold ministers and disciple them in the foundations of the Fathers Heart. We love them by prophetic revelation into healing and outward celebration of people, Fathers creation. Jesus said, “I do what I see the Father do and I say what I hear the Father say“. We thank God for the logos and the rhema of God; that gives us our lives in Him. We invite you to be part of Heartland Prophetic Council and experience the encompassing love of the Fathers heart that can flow through all believers. We welcome you with Fathers open arms. You will never be expendable, you will never be abandoned.
The Heartland Prophetic Council agrees whole heartily with our papa and founder Walter Waller
