Last Friday, a friend of mine had a massive dental operation. She had been feeling unwell for some years but could not pinpoint the underlying cause and then finally a specialist dentist discovered that the root canals of her crown teeth had been leaking lead into her whole system. Her jaw was infected and the only pathway to restoration of health was the removal of all 7 crowns, the drilling out of the root canal fillings and the scraping of her jaw bone, followed by six weeks leaving the cavities open and consuming a liquid diet so that the mouth and whole system could heal. Finally, she would receive new crowns without heavy metals in them.
Needless to say, this was an extremely traumatic operation and she is only in the early stages of recovery, not being allowed to be moved or bumped for the first few days. Why am I telling you this? Because the Lord began to speak to me about her being a prophetic sign in the earth of what He has to do to bring about the long term healing and restoration of His Bride. And He has to start by doing massive work upon those who form a part of the group identified as His mouthpieces.
The Hebrew word for ‘tooth’ comes from a root word meaning ‘to teach diligently’ and so the teeth that line the mouth of the Bride represent teachings or even teachers and prophets; those who declare they bring the authentic word they have heard from the mouth of the Lord.
Crown teeth are, of course, counterfeit teeth, inserted to sit upon the foundation and replace a real tooth which has broken or been eaten away by decay. When a root canal has been done (the root of the real tooth being removed), then there is no connection to life or the circulation meant to keep the tooth strong and healthy. In other words, the whole area is dead but it fills the gap in the mouth (it is pleasing aesthetically) and allows the person to keep eating and chewing meat and solid food. What is troubling is that, until recent years, dentists used lead and other heavy metals like mercury which are very poisonous to the human body to fill up the spaces inside the crown.
If we look at the whole scenario which happened with my friend prophetically, we see positioned firmly as part of the oracle, counterfeit teachers and prophets, those who appear to be real imparters of wisdom and truth, yet underneath they are full of poison and foreign substances which are busy slowly poisoning the Body of Christ from a hidden place. I would suggest that these leaking crown teeth represent those who are putting forth doctrines of demons disguised as the meat of the Word, which are being gobbled up by the Bride who is hungry for greater depth of understanding and higher wisdom and revelation. These teachers are disguised as messengers of righteousness just as satan disguised himself as an angel of light. Mercury is also known as quicksilver, looks like molten silver and the lightning bolt symbol is connected to it. We, of course, know who it was that fell like lightning from heaven…
The only way to deal with the hidden destruction they are causing is to remove them completely as being part of His mouthpiece. Not only must they be pulled out of their positions but the poison-filled roots of their teachings which have filled the body with disease and decay must be completely flushed out.
Jer 15:19 Therefore thus says the Lord: If you return, then I will give you again a settled place of quiet and safety, and you will be My minister; and if you separate the precious from the vile, you shall be My mouthpiece.
King James says in this verse ‘you shall be as My mouth’. But the qualification is a separation of the precious from the vile. We are speaking here of separating light from darkness, the tares from the wheat, of weeding out the stumbling blocks in the Kingdom, of the Lord whom we seek coming suddenly to His temple as a Refiner’s fire and a fuller’s soap. Firstly the poisoners, those spreading death and darkness will be exposed and shown to be detrimental to the Body. Then on an appointed day, their complete removal will be executed.
Zec 13:2 And in that day, says the Lord of hosts, I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they shall no more be remembered; and also I will remove from the land the [false] prophets and the unclean spirit.
The whole operation will be both a time of shaking amongst the mouthpiece brigade as He separates sheep from sheep and removes the counterfeit and false apostles, and it will be also a time of trauma for the whole Body as some of those whom they have looked to for wisdom and truth are purged from His mouth! And then there is appointed the strict diet of the pure milk of the Word.
1Pe 2:1 SO BE done with every trace of wickedness (depravity, malignity) and all deceit and insincerity (pretense, hypocrisy) and grudges (envy, jealousy) and slander and evil speaking of every kind. 1Pe 2:2 Like newborn babies you should crave (thirst for, earnestly desire) the pure (unadulterated) spiritual milk, that by it you may be nurtured and grow unto [completed] salvation…
Heb 5:12 For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others, you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles of God’s Word. You have come to need milk, not solid food.
Notice also that the offending teeth are not replaced immediately. Their seats are left open until full healing has occurred. During this time, the fear of the Lord will be tangible amongst those remaining in the mouthpiece brigade. There will be no eager clamoring to be promoted to these places of leadership. The fact that there were seven crowns poisoning the body of my friend speaks to us of a complete cleansing work, full removal and expulsion so that no trace is left behind of those of whom Paul speaks so passionately in the following passage:
2Co 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 2Co 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 2Co 11:4 For if he that comes preaches another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if you receive another spirit, which you have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him… 2Co 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2Co 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
I believe that as we stand on the brink of the time of the Lord releasing His messengers as flames of fire, that all who are earmarked to be used by Him ‘as His mouth’ in the season to come will be going through purging and cleansing of their mouths. Not only that but because the mouth speaks from the abundance of the heart, an appointed time of deep cleansing for all false beliefs, bitterness and any vestige of darkness in the heart is at hand. The next feast of the Lord is Rosh Hashanah 5780 and these weeks beforehand will be a time of deep spiritual detoxing, removal of ancient and deeply lodged pockets of poison. Whatever we have been carrying in our mouths has been poisoning us without us being aware. The Lord of His end-time army would have strong, light-filled soldiers with undivided hearts so that we may release a pure sound.
Isa 49:2 And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me, and made Me a polished shaft. He has hidden Me in His quiver, Isa 49:3 and said to Me, You are My servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.
