Prophetic Power

Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, He was hungry. 13 And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He would find something on it. When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 In response Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again” . . . 20 Now in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. 21 And Peter, remembering, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.” 22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.  23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Mark 11:12-14, 20-23 NKJV

Jesus demonstrated and taught His disciples the principle of prophetic power. When faced with a mountain (figurative)—a challenge, some difficulty, or what seems to be an impossible situation; if you have faith in God, then God can do anything, according to the spirit of faith. “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak” (Ps. 116:10; 2 Cor. 4:13).  The spirit of faith is prophetic power.

Jesus operated with words of prophetic power, teaching His disciples the mechanics of navigating the spirit of faith and exercising prophetic power: say it, don’t doubt it, believe it and receive it, and you shall have whatsoever you say (Mark 11:23). The spirit of faith can be exercised with both positive and negative words. Jesus used negative words to curse the barren fig tree (Mark 11:14).

You can bless or curse with the words you speak (prophesy). You can also save your life and lose your life by what you say, i.e., by your own prophetic power (Prov. 18:21). Your words spoken will prophesy grace, favor, and righteousness or prophesy guilt, condemnation, and judgment against you (Matt. 12:37).

So, watch your mouth! You have immense power; you will have what you say (prophesy). There are consequences, outcomes, and results as the direct fruit of the words we prophesy. Words are never lost spoken in the atmosphere. Remember the prophet Samuel—as he grew, “the Lord was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground” (1 Sam. 3:19). Nor will the Lord allow your words to fall to the ground. Again, watch your mouth. “Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles” (Prov. 21:23).

Prophetic Generation

But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. 18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. Acts 2:16-18 NKJV

There are three levels of prophesy: (1) the spirit of prophesy, (2) the gift of prophesy, and (3) the office of the prophet. During the last days, God promised to raise up a new generation of sons, daughters, and servants whose lives would be steeped in prophetic living. They would dream dreams and see visions; they would walk by faith and not by sight. This is what is called the prophetic generation.

Members of the prophetic generation will operate in life by listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit and speaking what they hear. They will listen “prophetically” and act “apostolically”—seeing it; believing it; saying it; and, acting as though it were so (2 Cor. 4:13), according to their measure of faith and prophesying accordingly (Rom. 12:3, 6). They will “also decree a thing, and it shall be established for [them]” (Job 22:28).  

A prototype of a prophetic generation believer today would be the prophet Ezekiel in his day. Ezekiel prophesied breath and life to a valley of “dry bones” and the bones were reconnected, and they lived according to the spoken word of the Lord (See Ezek. 37). The prophetic generation is a people of prophetic vision, committed to prophetic living according to the prophecy of the Book—according to the testimony of Jesus, the spirit of prophecy.

Prophetic Vision

 And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” 16 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:15-17 NKJV 

Physical sight will look at some circumstances and call them bad or ugly, dark or empty, failure or defeat, even hopeless, etc. But faith looks to God and sees the answer according to the prophecy of the Book. Walking by faith and seeing through the eye of faith is prophetic vision. Prophetic vision is to being eye-minded, i.e., seeing by faith through the eye of your mind; seeing the reality of the presence of God and His protection regardless of the circumstances reported to the physical eye (Rom. 4:17); and, choosing not to believe your “lying eyes.” Everything that your physical eyes report to your brain to believe isn’t necessarily the “real truth” in the mind of God.

Case in point—prophetic vision was illustrated in 2 Kings 6:8-23 where Gehazi, Elisha’s servant, saw defeat and demise when they were surrounded by the Syrian army, but Elisha prophetically saw God’s mighty army ensuring victory. A prophetic vision will see through the eye of faith. It will see it, believe it, and say it, according to the spirit of faith (2 Cor. 4:13). Elisha lived by faith and saw God’s answer by faith. The eye of faith reveals that God is doing more for you than you could ever realize through physical sight alone (Rom. 8:31).

When you face difficulties in life that appear to be insurmountable, remember that spiritual answers are always there, even if you can’t see them physically (Prov. 29:18). When you look through the eye of faith, God will show you the answer (2 Cor. 5:7). Now, if you don’t see God working in your life, the problem may be your spiritual eyesight—not God’s power! As in the illustration above, when Elisha prayed “open his eyes”, his servant also saw the angel of the Lord manifested as “horses and chariots of fire” (Ps. 34:7).  After Gehazi’s eyes were opened, he was no longer afraid because, he too saw God’s mighty army of angelic beings (Heb. 12:22; 1:14). My prayer for you is that God would open your eye faith to see prophetically!

 

 

 

 

WORD PO9WER with Dr. Jerry Miah Williams – You Are What You Eat Part 2

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).
