“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).
