“And by a prophet, the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved.” (Hosea 12:13) Joshua Smith serves this generation as an apostolic and prophetic voice to the Mississippi Gulf Coast region, the United States of America and nations abroad; organizations, government officials and business and ministry leaders. Below are recent [public] prophetic words that have been released with permission of the Holy Spirit.
The emergence of new apostolic voices (July 4th, 2021)
The Holy Spirit uses one word to describe these voices, both male and female: authentic. The word authentic means real or genuine; not copied or false; not imitation; worthy of acceptance.
They have been processed through pain, trauma, grief, abandonment, offenses, and rejection. Many have been made to be a “spectacle” and put on display as Paul described himself and the other apostles [1 Corinthians 4:9]. The beginning of 2021 has found them in volatile circumstances filled with challenges, difficulties, inner conflicts, relational conflicts and transitions, secret battles, silent tears, betrayals, and wounds that only Christ could heal. These processes were necessary.
“We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.” Acts 14:22b
You will know them by their fruit and the weightiness of their voice and walk. In a word, authority. They have truly “waited on their ministry” [Romans 12:7], and endured the process through patience. They have been perfected in love and have kept their heart on the altar of GOD. These are young voices and older voices who have been preserved. The Holy Spirit likens them to the Seer of Seers, Samuel, an apostolic prophet in his own right, who announced a new season and the breaking forth of a new day in Israel simply by being born.
The end of an era [Ichabod]; and the beginning of a new one. [Kabod].
They (young and old) walk in a dimension of maturity and seasoned wisdom that can only come from God.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” -James 1:5
This is the wisdom that is required to lead the Body of Christ through this season of reconstruction in the 20s. These voices must come to the forefront to lead the Body of Christ into this new era of Kingdom, else we return to old paradigms and systems. Time has caught up with eternity as the old era (and error) has ended and a new one has begun.
Toward the end of 2021, going into 2022 will see the emergence of these voices in full strength and in record number though there is a select remnant that God has sanctioned. Make room and make ready. The time is now. They should not be judged by their popularity but rather by their potency.
Beware! With the rise of the authentic, there will also be a rise of the fake. With the rise of the mature, there will also be a rise of the immature.
Yet the LORD Himself has released judgement that will separate the wheat from the tare. This is not a total casting away of the old, but it is a pulling off of the old order and old systems. As the Scriptures declare, “Every man’s work shall be made manifest.” [1 Corinthians 3:13]. Every work that is not true will be tried by fire and burned when it is found to be either untrue or unprepared. Just as Jesus endured a process of 40 days of testing in the wilderness [the number 40 means testing], these voices have been tested behind the curtain. Even the voices that are being raised by them [as Samuel anointed and raised David] are being tested and proven for their own emergence in due time.
The Body of Christ can no longer afford to be led by unseasoned voices with impure hearts and motives. The LORD of the harvest will not suffer it to be so. The days ahead will see a great separation and a dividing line. Those who are spiritual will discern the difference. To be more clear, no one will be able to escape seasons of tests, trials, and measures of accountability to prove legitimacy in this new day.
“Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” -Romans 5:3-5
With the rise of these apostolic voices, there will be arise of apostolic people that will follow the new apostolic voices.
“Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles?” -1 Corinthians 12:29
These people have been processed as well and are being sent forth with Kingdom culture in their heart. As the Scripture declares, “He has made everything beautiful in His time, He also set eternity in their heart.” (Eccl. 3:11) An apostolic people are emerging with apostolic DNA who will take territory. An apostolic people who will operate in dominion in the earth. An apostolic people who will take over the systems of this world, including the economy and educational systems. An apostolic people who will live out of their covenant with God with no mixture. An apostolic people who will know their God and will do great exploits in the earth [Daniel 11:32]. An apostolic people who will operate in authentic signs and wonders.
“And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues.” -Mark 16:17
Jesus, the apostle, is resetting His Bride back into proper order and alignment.
“He who has an ear, let him hear.”

The Word of the LORD to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Region (10/18/2020)
“IF YOU’RE COMING, COME NOW!”
I see industry & infrastructure booming in this region (The Mississippi Gulf Coast) in the coming two years.
I see NEW CONTRACTS for Keesler AFB, the Seabee Base & Northrop Grumman which will bring new jobs in record number. Many will come through via military transplant and be saved, healed & delivered.
The educational system is about to see major improvements and overhaul. The real estate market is about to proliferate and many will move here and settle here saying, “I found a new life here.” “I found GOD here.” Many will find home here, in an unlikely place of prosperity. I heard the word “mecca”.
I see a ship coming in carrying the wealth of the nations! This time, the distribution of wealth will be of equal weight & measure. Those who hold wealth illegally who are in positions of power and authority, the LORD himself will judge. There will be equal distribution!
Age-old principalities of the past, including including racism, oppression, disunity, and the spirit of religion are being disarmed & will not stop this next Flow on Heaven’s schedule. For Behold, God is doing a new thing on our Coast and it will spread throughout the state, the surrounding states will also benefit.
***This is a portion of the Word of the Lord that was released during a prophetic flow Sunday, October 18th at House of Healing Christian Assembly International, Gulfport.
I have prophesied as I was commanded! Intercessors, pray into this Word and war over it according to 1 Timothy 1:18. Continue to break up the ground and plow in this region! As we move forward, GOD will challenge many ministers and ministries to challenge the minds & the mindset of the people of the region through sound Kingdom teaching in order to contain & maintain this outpouring. The ground has now been made fruitful and fertile. 2021 is a year of OPPORTUNITY
The Word of the LORD Concerning the 2020 Election (USA; 10-19-2020)
I will begin this post by saying three things: GOD is neither Democrat nor Republican. Period. You’d be wise to reject any alleged prophetic word that has a “political slant” to it. It is not the heart of the Father. Secondly, the most accurate among our ranks abhor politics of ANY KIND and are usually “independent”, not preferring one party over the other so we can see straight down the middle in order to give you the heart and mind of GOD with NO MIXTURE. Thirdly, the Father is ABSOLUTELY not pleased with what is going on in our Nation’s (USA) governmental system right now, as a collective. We will continue to be judged as a Nation according to the spiritual laws that we break. Right now, IDOLATRY is at the top of the list. Only the remnant who seek the Kingdom will be safe and saved. Repent!
My prayer and prophetic focus has NOT been on the election, however, on the morning of September 24, 2020, I saw in a vision what looked to be map of the United States and then state lines being redrawn. I then heard the word “UPSET”. I sensed in my spirit that this had something to do with the upcoming presidential election. When I woke up and began to pray into this vision, it was confirmed. This is already scheduled to be one of the most contentious elections of our lifetime. It doesn’t take a prophet to see that. But this is what you need to know…
When I submitted the dream to a member of my own personal apostolic prophetic council, Apostle Pam Vinnett, she confirmed that what I saw in the vision was indeed accurate. “While we were sleeping”, gerrymandering has been widely occurring in many key swing states. This has caused for a redistricting that would put one party over another in terms of electoral college votes. These demarcation lines have been changed and adjusted within states (“state lines”) and would surely cause an upset to any election. POLITICS! But I saw it in the Spirit. Exposed! If you do some research, you will see that this is a major concern for the upcoming elections, not just the presidential election.
On the morning of October 7, 2020 on House of Healing’s morning prayer call, I began to focus in on the election as I led prayer. When I began to pray for “peace”, I immediately “hit a wall” in the spirit. And it was a hard wall! Mature Intercessors know that this could mean one of two things: 1. Press harder (and call for backup!) or 2. TURN and go in another direction [in other words, “stay out of this area”; it’s either not your grade or it’s illegal to pray this right now…see Matthew 18:18, amplified]
After our corporate prayer time, I continued to pray into what I sensed on the call because it troubled me that the Holy Spirit was not in agreement with what I was praying. The LORD brought back to my spirit the 2000 election and the confusion and contention that surrounded it. Here is the warning. We can continue to pray FOR peace, justice, complete fairness and AGAINST confusion, chaos, political unrest, heightened voter suppression & intimidation, however, I honestly sense in my spirit that we only have permission to pray that these things be lessened in the coming weeks and not stopped because they are coming! I hate to be the “prophet of doom”, however I’ve never been one to prognosticate for platform and popularity.
Here is how we, The Body of Christ, can pray: 1. That the Kingdom of God on earth [the church worldwide] and its continued reconstruction and that we be postured & positioned to be salt and light. 2. Pray against deception & strong delusion [in the world and the church]. 3. The lessening of strife & contention around election results. 4. A FAIR election with a peaceful transition of power and no cheating! 5. Pray for mercy on our land.
Also, VOTE I don’t have any prophetic intelligence on who will win and I don’t claim to know (nor will I tell you how to vote). GOD knows. I am not a fortuneteller; I speak my portion of what He reveals to me. I’m only sharing what I’ve seen and heard thus far. Pray that His perfect will be done without man made interference, further or idolatry or deception. He is a GOD of equity & justice.
Our best days are still ahead. Trust me, there are so many more other things on God’s mind BESIDE Nov 3 in America; and December looks like sunshine.
Submitting humbly for weighing & praying.
