A while back, we received a prophetic word from a good friend, Michelle Wrigley. This word witnessed with us then, but recently it has come to mind and we believe it’s a word for this season. As we say, “A now word.”

“I had a picture of a stone at the bottom of a well with a string tied to it. The string was being used to measure the depth of the well.  There was a sense that we

[believers] have limited our understanding of the depth of God’s well for healing based on what we can measure – our personal experience. 

 I saw a well being dug, and as soon as water was found, the digging stopped.  But the deeper a person digs, the purer the water and the more minerals to be found.  As one digs through the various levels of limestone, shale, and other rocks, the water gets purer.  I felt that God was going to help us dig through an almost solid level of rock here on the East Coast of America.  

I saw a picture of the US from the side and saw a very deep well on the West Coast reaching toward the earth’s core and felt it was a well for healing like there was in the Azusa Street Revival and John G. Lake’s healing rooms. I saw other wells around the country at varying heights. 

However, the well on the east coast had hit hard rock and been halted. Then I saw the Lord break through the rock and connect the well right at the earth’s core to the well from the west coast. Then the Lord reminded me of his name Jehovah Rapha – ‘The Lord that heals you’.  I felt that the name of the well on the east would be Ber-Rapha, Well of Healing.  I had a strong sense that the healing would not be limited to the physical, but it would be for emotional healing too, in particular, depression.

 Jesus said that in the last days it would be “As in the days of Noah”.  In Noah’s time, the water came from three places: the firmament above, the earth and the deep.  I remember a teaching that in the last days the glory of God would come from the same three places: The firmament above which represents an open heaven, the earth, seen by the believers who carry the glory of God, and the deep.  I felt the Lord say that this well was a beginning of the release of His glory from the deep.

I felt that the minerals from such a deep well would be very important to us in this season.  The topsoil in the US has lost most of its mineral content due to abuse (not allowing the land to lie fallow every seven years.)  I felt the Lord say that the minerals are still there in the deep places.

Then I heard a wordplay for the following scriptures and felt that these would be the benefits of the minerals from the well:

  • “Well-watered” as in “watered from the well”  – Isaiah 58V11: The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Jeremiah 31V12: They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion; they will rejoice in the bounty of the Lord—the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, the young of the flocks and herds. They will be like a well-watered garden, and they will sorrow no more.
  • “Well-spent” lives as in lives spent digging the well – Hebrews 3V17:  And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies perished in the wilderness?
  • “Well-founded” hope. Hope will be renewed – 2 Thessalonians 2V16: May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope…
  • “Well-beloved” a deeper revelation of the Father’s love – Colossians 3V12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
  • “Well-fed”, spiritual sustenance – Philippians 4V12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
  • “Well-being”, the end to torment –  Philippians 4V19: And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”

Let us open our hearts to all God has for us; His wells are deep.
