Trust God

Steps to Activating the prophetic gift in you........Gift of God that come with Power!


Brethren, I am delighted to share some truths of the prophetic ministry with you, in the hope that one or two persons will have the question in his/her mind  answered.

Divine revelation and prophesy is so important to our christian living that Moses wished that every child of God could prophesy.

Every prophetic child is known by their parents, especially if such parents are in Christ - How? The angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph, the husband of Mary and told him  "Your wife shall bring forth a son, and thou shall call his name JESUS: for He shall save his people from their sins"

Zacharias was ministering in the temple when an angel of the Lord appeared and told him "Your prayer is heard; and thy wife Elizabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shall call his name John".  Its always been that way for children that God wants to use in the prophetic.

I was studying one early morning and the Lord spoke to me and said "your third child is ready to come, his name shall be called....."  This was before he was conceived and it was so!  

Prophesy is a unique gift that edifies the church and people of God.  It can be defined in a number of ways - hearing from God, messages or word for yourself or other people.  Knowing the mind of God concerning an issue; it is receiving word of knowledge - information about what is going on at that moment somewhere, or information needed to deal with an immediate matter.  

Every child of God delights in hearing His voice because through....... His voice hidden secrets are revealed, and troubles are averted, yokes are broken and uncommon deliverance are brought to bear.

God made a promise to His children who will live in the last days, that He will pour out His Spirit upon all flesh and His servant(Men) and handmaidens(women) shall prophesy  Acts 2:17-18. Today, we’re living in the very last days and one can see the need for the prophetic ministry and prophesy. 

The increase in demonic activities targeting the children of God and the entire human race is alarming.

From the scripture, it is clear that spiritual vision and prophesy will be critical to the survival and success of churches in the End Time. It’s no longer business as usual for the church of Christ. Apostle Paul said his preaching’s were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the spirit and of power (1 Cor 2:4-5).

The era of theology and oratory in the church is over for good. This is because we’re in the biblical era of Prophet Elijah and the prophets of Baal and the battle is becoming fierce within and outside the church.

In Joel 2, God promised to pour out His Spirit in the last days upon all flesh. That means that God is ready to release His Spirit on all His children for both edification and to raise end-time generals who would walk intimately with Him to rescue and deliver millions of people held captive in the camp of Satan.

Whether we like it or not, there is already a great hunger for the prophetic because of the activities of powers of darkness. The devil and his agents are on the rampage, targeting men, women and children to initiate or kill. They’re doing everything possible to undermine the word of God and the truth. See what they have turned the internet into, preaching false doctrines and teaching children abominations to destroy their future. But the truth of God will surely prevail through me and you and through the demonstration of the power of God.

People in the church and outside church are going to seek prophetic instruction and guidance in the face of serious demonic attack at home, office and business places. These attacks coming from unknown sources, enemies and unfriendly friends has made the love of many people to wax cold.  

People are finding it increasingly difficult to trust others, many marriages has remained childless for years,  some business men are unable to sell a single item in weeks due to the effect of demonic curses, spell and enchantments placed on them by powers behind-the-scene.  

At times like this, the Lord will release His Spirit on the church to expose the lies of Satan and bring revival. This is why it is apt for Pastors and Prophets  to continually seek the face of God for fresh revelations that will terminate the failure people are suffering.

Wonders of the Prophetic 
The prophetic brings down the presence and power of God. With His presence comes prophesy, miracles, signs and wonders. From the bible, several men who walked with God and those that God used to fulfill His counsel in the past all prophesied. 

From ENOCH, Joseph to David, they all prophesied, though many of them were not prophets by Calling.  The prophetic grace is always available to men that desire it, especially the desperate ones.  It is such an end-time gift that Evangelists and churches that hope to  defeat the enemy and overturn their numerous evil schemes  need to engage the Lord daily for fresh revelation that will help the people.

The coming of prophetic grace usually heralds the man or woman of God into a new spiritual platform.  It bring with it a new mindset, it opens the man to deep spiritual things and he cannot be a casual Pastor or Evangelist any longer.  It makes you to be sin-conscious as well as love conscious.  

These two issues are indispensable for any servant of God who wish to operate in the prophetic. Once activated, the man of God is able to be a blessing to million that the Lord will direct to him.  Many Pastors and churches has lost their members due to their inability to address the spiritual problems of the people.
The coming of prophetic grace also makes soul winning easier and ministry more fruitful because it pulls the suffering, the oppressed and sick people to the church hoping that Jesus, our Messiah will heal and deliver them.  

It also brings a transformation to the man and his family as spiritual revelation and insight becomes a regular thing.  Nothing happens around your life, family, ministry that the Lord will not reveal to you before time or shortly after.  The Pastor enjoys the benefit of holy living as revelation and open vision reduce your labour in praying for people.  

The Lord also gives you word of knowledge and prophesy as you continue to walk with Him.  He watches over you to ensure that the enemy will not make you cry.  You are His mouthpiece and His ambassador, so He is ever working to support and assist you.  

The prophetic gift and grace is a special gift that God do not release to people in hurry. God has His own criterion, but the man seeking the grace should be one who can show love to all irrespective of barriers.  The anointing starts from you, by setting you free from your own bondage and spiritual entanglement.

When you are free and loosed, then you can help others as the Lord does not allow us to lead people to where we ourselves have not been to. You cannot set people free when you’re in bondage. Also, the Lord opens your spiritual eye to see and know a lot of secrets about life and your family. 

You cannot be seeing vision for people without seeing or knowing what is going on around you. 

We are living witnesses to the upsurge of demonic activities in every area of life. Doctrines of Satan are being taught in public schools and the very word of God is ignored. Today, people commit abomination without remorse.  These are indeed perilous times and one can see the need for the prophetic ministry and prophesy. The increase in demonic activities targeting children of God and the entire human race is alarming.

The prophetic anointing makes the need of the church and its members to come alive in your heart, so that from that time, your prayer changes in every aspect so much so that the transformation will be such that Ten prayer warriors and Ten intercessor cannot match your prayer grace. Your prayer becomes purposeful and effective.
