Prophetic statements from scriptures are not some nice collection of "wise sayings" like souvenirs to show off our current spirituality. But precise, powerful, and purposeful utterances from God to navigate us into our due season. God is never a joker. He says what He means and means every Word He says! As it is our responsibility to worship God alone, so it is His responsibility is to bless us, as His children.
It's therefore absurd, ungodly, and improper to wave off God's blessings because we're pious, proud or due to false humility. We need God's blessings, we can't do without God. God desires our worship and plainly commanded and declared "We should worship no other gods". God doesn't want to do without us; He's too much in love! Jn.3:16.
Yet, there are Prophecy Wasters, Prophecy Watchers, and Prophecy warriors! This first category, are stark unbelievers, who believe prophecies are a waste of time, energy and resources. "Seeing is believing" is their watchword and comfort zone! It's a waste of time reaching them, so let's not waste more time talking about them.
The Prophecy Watchers are the most crafty, sleek, and subtle. They sit quietly in their easy chair in a corner, take elaborate notes of all the prophetic declarations, cross their fingers and legs, adjust their spiritual lenses accurately and passively watch out for the outcome of the declared prophecies. If they're fulfilled, then like a flash, you see them with their tambourines join the entire Church in a frenzy of enthusiastic jubilation!
But if not, because of delay, because God's more sure Word can never fall to the ground unfulfilled, only delayed, they're quick to point out three, four or five reasons why such "outrageous utterances" should not continue! They’re like the wave of the sea, tossed to and fro, very unstable!
Finally, the Prophecy Warriors are sold out men and women, who trust the integrity of God's infallibility. They know that prophetic statements from God's throne are precise weapons of warfare and divine secret instructions for effective strategic intercession! 1Tim.1:18, 19. They're prayer warriors, who terrorize the kingdom of darkness terribly. Demons tremble before them, like they tremble before God, -James 2:19. Devils include their names in the list of those marked as terrorists in hell, whenever they cry out "Jesus we know, Paul we know ..." Acts 19:13-20.
We don't wait and passively watch prophecies fulfilled as long as we have Satan out to kill, steal and destroy. Jn.10:10. That's why divine fury is a necessity for wholesome victory! Be spiritually violent, ruthless, and aggressive with the Devil and his cohorts, but be very meek, patient, kind and loving with people. God is crowning this year with abundance of good things for you - take it by force! Remember it's time to pray hard, when it's hard to pray! Pray in the Holy Spirit, add fasting, pray in agreement, attend prayer meetings, move yourself to pray this period at whatever cost!
From now till the end of the year, upgrade your prayer program. Night and day, keep interceding; use relevant, precise, and accurate scriptures as your weapons of warfare. The victory is sure! I'm praying with you.
Matt.11:12; Lk.11:5-22; Isa.62:6, 7; Ps.65:11-13.
Have a victorious week in God's awesome presence.
