Prophecy is truly astonishing and intrigues me. I’ve been wanting to study and meditate on prophecy more than I have been in the past year.
I was led to a 6-day excerpt that is based from a book called “The Prophetic Advantage” by Michelle McClain-Walters.
In The Prophetic Advantage Michelle McClain delivers a practical, comprehensive, and balanced look at the role of the prophetic ministry in today’s world. Using the lion as an example, she encourages believers to rise up in boldness, power, and strength, as she…
· Provides a clear understanding of the biblical mandates and mission of the prophetic
· Outlines the function and focus that prophets should exhibit
· Tackles the issues of prophetic operation and balance
· Gives one hundred advantages that come to those who receive a revelation from God through the voice of the prophetic.
Walk with me as I take on this daily excerpt during this new upcoming week. 😃 feel free to share you thoughts on the passages!!
Day 1 🌹:
We are living in days of tremendous crisis and turmoil. The Lord has set the stage where no one with a carnal mind can discern what is happening in our society socially, economically, or militarily. If there was ever a time when God’s people needed an advantage, it is now. The Lord in His mercy is releasing revelation knowledge through His prophets that will empower the people of God with wisdom, direction, and insight into the council of His will.
The world is in desperate need of the voice of God. If the church is to be a force in the world. If Christians are to be a transformative voice to the next generation. We need to be tuned in to what God wants to tell us.
Israel had an advantage over the other nations because they possessed the oracles of God. The prophetic Scriptures gave Israel an advantage in preparing them for the coming Messiah.
The Lord is empowering the church with an anointing to communicate His heart and mind accurately. The church will speak as an oracle of God.
When we speak prophetically, we are speaking as the oracles of God. This will give us an advantage in all things pertaining to our lives. We have an advantage, just as Israel had an advantage. This is called the prophetic advantage.
“Whoever speaks [to the congregation], is to do so as one who speaks the oracles (utterances, the very words) of God. Whoever serves [the congregation] is to do so as one who serves by the strength which God [abundantly] supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified [honored and magnified] through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”
1 PETER 4:11 AMP
“Then what is the advantage of the Jew? Or what is the benefit of circumcision? Great in every respect. To begin with, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God [His very words].”
ROMANS 3:1-2 AMP
