Prophetic Focus for November 2017
My case is different greetings to you all in Jesus' name. I want to believe that everyone of us is still flowing in the anointing of Operation Prayer for Life. My prayer is that Kingdom Advancement Prayer shall become the life style of every Winner for life and may the 'open' blessings that attend to secret investment in prayer continue to be the portion of everyone of us for life.
We must recognize that, while every Prophetic Word from the Lord is forever valid, also valid is the fact that every Prophetic Word shall continue to be contended with by the wicked one and his agents (Isaiah 24:14, 1 Corinthians 16:9).
This is why Paul wrote to Timothy saying,
"This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;"- I Timothy 1:18
We understand from scriptures that the Word of God is absolutely prophetic, because it never returns void, but goes forth to accomplish it purpose in the lives of those who receive and believe such Prophetic Word (Isaiah 55:11, Luke 1:55).
Remember, every Prophetic Word is a seed with guaranteed harvest in the lives of those who receive such in a good and honest heart (Genesis 8:22, Luke 8:11, 15).
But according to scriptures, every seed delivers on praise,
"Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; ...God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him" – Psalm 67:5-7 (see also Habbakuk 3:17-19)
This is why no prophetic word will ever see the light of day without engaging the weapon of thanksgiving and praise, because when joy ceases, every harvest of the field perishes (Joel 1:11-12).
Hannah, on receiving the Prophetic Word from Eli, rose up, took bread and her countenance was no more sad, that is, she was celebrating the reality of that Prophetic Word, which provoked divine visitation that led to the birth of her Samuel (1 Samuel 1:13-19).
Concerning Abraham, the Bible says, "he staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strong in faith, giving glory to God", that is, provoking fulfillment of prophecy, which led to the birth of Isaac (Romans 4:19-21).
We also saw how Jehoshaphat and the army of Judah had to sing and praise to see prophecy fulfilled (2 Chronicles 20:14-24).
Furthermore, Jesus had to give thanks to see this prophecy fulfilled as He called Lazarus out of the grave (John 11:40-44, John 5:25)
In conclusion, we must understand that only the hand of God has capacity to fulfill the plan and purpose of God and we have to engage in praise warfare among others to see Prophetic Words come to pass in our lives.
Therefore, the prophetic focus for November 2017 is:
“PRAISE TRIGGERS FULFILLMENT OF PROPHECY”– 2chronicles.20:14-24
Recommended books for the month authored by me include:
- Understanding the Power of Praise
- Wonders of Praise
Remain ever blessed.
Jesus is Lord!!!
