Prophetic Living

“Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.” Revelation 22:7 NKJV 

The prophecy of the Book is the Word of God—“[f]or the testimony [evidence, record] of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” (Rev. 19:10). So, what God says in His Word is always prophetic, and prophecy provides the hearer with prophetic vision. A prophetic vision is what you see by faith; thus, every spiritual foundation in life must be built with a prophetic foundation; otherwise people are unrestrained and unfocused (Prov. 29:18).

A prophetic vision (chazown, Heb.) is to be “eye-minded”, it is mental sight; it can also be a dream, revelation, oracle, or prophesy, and you as the beholder in vision (chozeh) according to the words of the prophecy of the Book. It is a prophetic vision that conveys the prophetic mind of God (1 Cor. 2:16). Without the prophetic mind of God, you’ll lose your way. For example, much like the Pharisees in Jesus’ day, their vision was blurred and their  understanding was dull with no sense of God’s purpose and plan, His will and direction in life, with respect to marriage; they built their “martial house” on sand (Matt. 7:24-27). They were like the blind leading the blind and had fallen into a ditch (Matt. 15:14).

Prophetic living is living by faith—living according to the prophecy of the Book, with prophetic vision that sees through the eye of faith; where you see it , believe it, and say it (2 Cor. 4:13). You see healing rather than sickness and disease; you see abundance rather than lack; you see opportunity rather than crisis, etc. It is “walking by faith, not by sight” (2 Cor. 5:7). Physical sight looks at appearances, but faith looks to God, and what God said in the prophecy of the Book. Prophetic living helps you to see God and the answer. Calling those things which be not as though they were, being fully persuaded that, what God has promised, He is able also to perform (Rom. 4:17, 21).

Prophecy of the Book  

“Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book” . . . and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Revelation 22: 7, 19 NKJV

Whether it is marriage and family, ministry, job, or career; you need a vision. Every foundation must be built with a prophetic vision. A prophetic vision is what you see by faith, and it answers the questions: What is God saying? What did God say? What thus saith the Lord? A prophetic vision gives you a sense of purpose and a plan, direction, power and authority. To form a prophetic vision, you must start with the Prophecy of the Book (Prov. 29:18).

The definition of vision (chazown, Heb.) means to be “eye-minded”, mental sight, dream, revelation, oracle; but it also means prophesy, i.e., a beholder in vision (chozeh, Heb.). On the other hand, prophecy (propheteia, Gr.), in its most simple noun form means speaking forth of the mind and the counsel of God. And in the verb form, prophesy is to speak or sing by inspiration of God; to see that. More often than not, prophesy in the OT had a predictive element in the message, and an indicative element in the NT.

Prophesy of the Book (Bible) expresses the prophetic mind of God. For example, when the Pharisees tested Jesus with a question about a man lawfully divorcing his wife for any reason, Jesus painted, proved, and provided God’s prophetic vision for marriage (Matt. 19:3-6). Not that marriage was ever to be problem-free, but God created the male and female as “one” in His image and likeness, to have dominion over issues that could possibly lead to divorce.

Prophesy of the Book provided for man to have dominion from the beginning (Gen. 1:26-28). Dominion means to rule, subjugate, dominate, tread down. When God formed the first man, Adam, He formed him with His hands, and prophesied life and dominion into him (Gen. 2:7). Could this be the reason why the “laying on of hands” work? (Mark 16:18). Because of Adam’s disobedience and spiritual death, now through obedience, when you prophesy, you are prophesying life and dominion back into man.

Satan hates prophecy (Mark 14:65; 1 Cor. 14:3). In fact, it was Prophecy of the Book that doomed Satan in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3:14-15). According to that first prophecy of the Book, Jesus dealt a deathblow to Satan’s spiritual “skull” at Golgotha, the place of the skull (Matt. 27:33). With the Prophecy of the Book, you can prophesy life and dominion into any issue that concerns you; even into the church; and, we can also prophesy against Satan to pull down his strongholds (2 Cor. 10:4).

One Loaf

The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread. 1 Corinthians 10:16-17 NKJV

The apostle Paul instructed the church at Corinth that communion was be observed in remembrance of Jesus Christ—His crucifixion and resurrection. In fact, he further said that “for as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes” (1 Cor. 11:24-26). In our text above, Paul further shows that communion is a celebration of oneness—“one bread and one body.” It is first oneness with the Lord and then oneness with one another. It is a time of intimacy with the Lord and His Body around a table sharing bread and wine with one another to express the true union of all believers. Communion (koinonia Greek) is fellowship, partnership, participation, and social intercourse—one believer to another.

Communion is an expression of oneness, “one bread and one body.” A fitting metaphor for communion is “One Loaf”, as in a loaf of bread. The basic ingredients in a loaf of bread are: flour, milk, salt, sugar, butter/oil, yeast, and water. Spiritually speaking, like the ingredients of bread, though we are many, communion reminds us that we are still “One Loaf.” “One Loaf” is union in Christ.

In the Scriptures, God’s first revelation of oneness was the union between Adam and Eve (Gen. 2:21-24). Oneness isn’t just bodily; it is unity of mind, spirit, and purpose (1 Cor. 1:10). The cup and the bread, not only symbolizes our unity in Christ, it also creates it (1 John 1:7). Make no mistake about it, we don’t partake of the one loaf and one cup because we are one, but we become one when we do (Eph. 4:3).  It is absolutely true that in communion, “the cup of blessing which we bless, it is the communion of the blood of Christ. The bread which we break, it is the communion of the body of Christ. “For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one [loaf]” (1 Cor. 10:17).

  God’s Promised Provision

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel. Genesis 3:15 NKJV

Every since Adam and Eve fell in the Garden, God’s priority has been to seek and save the lost. God’s first promise ever made was to send a Savior, i.e., the Seed of the woman, and the Savior would make a way. God’s promised provision was: (1) a woman would have a Son; (2) the Son would destroy Satan; (3) Satan would bruise the heel (body) of the women’s Son. After Jesus’ atoning death and resurrection, God gave the world the His promised provision, the protevangel—the first Gospel!

A provision is a supply for a need or that which is prepared beforehand. The prophet Isaiah foresaw the coming of Jesus proclaiming God’s provision (Isa. 61:1). God’s promised provision is the Gospel (Mark 16:15-16). “And this [promised provision] of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come (Matt. 24:14). God’s promised provision was to leave no lost soul behind.

But, how lost sinners respond to the Gospel makes the difference between salvation and damnation. Some will accept the provision, placing their faith in God; others will reject it to their own peril. “The [provision] is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):  that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation . . . Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame” (Rom. 10:8-11).

It is the responsibility of believers to proclaim, announce, and bear witness to the truth of God’s provision to the lost (Rom. 10:13-15). Believers must see themselves as faithful stewards of the message of the Gospel (1 Cor. 1:1-2), and never be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus’ atoning death and resurrection (Rom. 1:16). “As it is written, how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things” (Isa. 52:7; Rom. 10:15).

  God’s Priority

And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” 10 So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself” . . . Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed them. Genesis 3:8-10, 21 NKJV

Many people are so confused and disorganized, where they are not able to decide what is more important, and what needs attention first in life—but not God. Every since Adam and Eve fell in the Garden, God’s priority has been actively seeking those separated from Him by the consequences of sin. God’s priority is to save the lost sinner. God’s priority for Adam and Eve was to first cloth their sinful nakedness with the skins of animals. The blood of animals was shed to picture how the Lord Jesus, as the Lamb of God, should die for sin, that we might be clothed with righteousness (Rev. 13:3; Heb. 9:22).

Priority means putting first things first in the order of things. Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount that we should seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matt. 6:33). Why? If we are God’s priority, then it’s a small thing for us to make Him our priority. God further demonstrated that sinful man was His priority when He sent Jesus in the fullness of time to be born of a woman to redeem us (Gal. 4:4-5), as the Lamb of God who would take away our sin (John 1:29). God’s priority was to send Jesus and His Gospel for the sole purpose of salvation—not condemnation (John 3:16-17), first to the Jew and then to the Gentile.

For example, Jesus always put first things first. When He entered Jericho and was passing through, Zacchaeus, a chief tax collector and a sinner— because of the crowd—ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see Jesus coming that way. But Jesus saw him first and called to him to come down out of the tree because salvation had come to his house. Why? Zacchaeus, too, was a son of Abraham (Jew). Jesus told him that “the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost” (Luke 19:1-10). Jesus could have first ministered to the sick and even cast out devils, but Zacchaeus’ salvation was God’s priority.

Although is God’s priority to save all, not all will be saved (2 Peter 3:9). Some will reject the atoning blood of the Lamb of God, and refuse to be covered in God’s righteousness. For those who have accepted Jesus Christ, you can “greatly rejoice in the Lord, [your] soul shall be joyful in [your] God; for He has clothed [you] with garments of salvation, He has covered [you] with the robe of righteousness . . .” (Isa. 61:10). Salvation of sinful man is God’s priority!
