Understanding How Praise Facilitates Fulfilment of Prophecy (Part 3)

What is Prophecy?

Prophecy is the unveiling of God’s plan and purpose for a nation, a people or an individual, it is God unfolding or telling us things that will spring forth –Isah. 42:9/ I Kings 8:15/Deut. 18:21-22/ Ezk. 12:25

Sources of Prophecies

Scripturally, there are 2 main sources of prophecy:

  1. First, from scriptures, which is said to be a more sure word of prophecy – 2 Pet. 1:19-21/ Psa. 89:34
  2. Secondly, from prophets sent our way – Luk. 4:25-27/ Mat. 10:41/ Deut. 18:21-22
  3. But we have a responsibility to know what it takes to experience fulfillment of prophecy, and this is what informs our teaching series for the month – Isa. 5:1-13

Characteristics of Prophecies or Prophetic Words?

  • It can never be fulfilled in the energy of the flesh: No human hand can fulfill a divine agenda – Jer. 17:5-8/ 1 Cor. 15:10
  • Only the hand of God can fulfill His word in our lives – 1 Kgs. 8:17-24/ Psa. 127:1-2
  • It revolves around God’s authority and not on man’s inability: Remember God speaks according to His authority, not our inability – Mat. 8:8-13/ Mat. 26:31-35/69-75

When does a Prophetic Word Qualifies to be Fulfilled?

 

    • But until a prophetic Word is received, it never gets fulfilled – 2 Pet. 1:19-21/ Luk. 8:11/15/ Mak. 4:30-32
    • God’s word is like a seed and until the seed is planted in a good soil (a good heart) it does not germinate and bring forth good fruit.
    • It is not enough to receive the word in our heart, we must mix it with faith Heb. 4:2/Luke 8:15/ John 1:12 (You receive and believe)

Proofs that A Prophetic Word is Received

Bold Declaration: Every prophetic word received provokes bold declarations – Mat. 10:27/ 2 Cor. 4:13
