Every prophecy deals with people, places, events. Anytime you receive a prophetic word whole prophecy.
Isaiah 14:25-27 says
"That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall hsi yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. 26) This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretch out upon all the nations. 27) For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall tuurn it back?"
This is the key to understanding prophecy. There's what we call promise, the Lord said Abraham I will bless you and bless your seed and all those that bless you I'll bless and all those that curse you, I'll curse. And through you all nations in the Earth shall be blessed.
What God says to me is promise. What God does through me is prophetic. I have power to pronounce a blessing not just on myself and my family, but others as well. That's very important because once God speaks to me he releases his spirit upon me which enables me to pronounce a blessing on others. The anointing of God. (The empowerment of God; God empowers me by his Spirit to do things that deal with my assignment prophetically).
The next thing God does when it comes to prophecy is there's a certain thought pattern that God wants you to have. Remember one word of prophecy contains patterns of program thinking. It deals with patterns of thoughts, patterns of speech, and people assigned to receive. These are three major keys of every prophecy.
So if God says he's going to bless me there are other people involved. God uses the resources that he had made available here in the Earth that's in other people's hands.
Jeremiah 29:11 says
"So when God speaks to me prophetically he's telling me the ending. Now so that you can better understand this whenever God speaks to me prophetically. There's always divine assistance. That means there's angels assigned to me to assist me concerning what God just told me prophetically. (Angels assigned to work with me; they will respond when I speak the right things).''
With every prophecy there's always key people that's involved. Once again I specify people, places, and events. Exodus 3 God told Moses to go to Egypt. His purpose was to bring the children of Israel out of bondage. Degrees of difficulty with the assignment was the God that Moses knew Pharaoh didn't know. And the people that were in bondage had been in bondage for so long what they had been told about God was different than actually seeing God. Remember these were Abraham's decedents.
It's key that when you receive a prophetic word that you get to know God in a greater way. I need people that can hear from God better than me. I need people that's going to where I'm trying to get to. I need people that know more than me about what I'm doing. Not to take over what God's giving me, but to assist me as I go. There's safety in a multitude of counsel. This is very important when people are going through experiences which many people call trials is to help you to know God in a greater way. Tribulations works patience, patience experience, and experience hope that you may not be made ashamed.
The trying of your faith or a trial is for promotion. A test is for knowledge. With every prophecy there's always preparation. God spoke to Moses at the burning bush, but Moses didn't know God.
(Exodus 31; Where Moses actually meets God)
Many times concerning the prophetic word God will use dreams and visions to communicate with you. This depends on your level of spirituality. The first part is the call for the assignment (invitation from God). The second part is preparation for the anointing that must be applied to your life for the assignment. The third thing is the actual assignment itself. God told Moses to go to Egypt, speak to Pharaoh, work miracles of judgment to convince Pharaoh to let the people go. In coming out of Egypt God favored Moses and Israel and Egyptians gave him great spoils (silver, gold, new clothes, etc).
Exodus 12:30-41 says
"And Pharoah rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. 31) And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people both ye and the children of Israel; and go serve the Lord, as ye have said. 32) Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also. 33) And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, we be all dead men. 34) And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their knedingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders. 35) And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and rainment: 36) And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians. 37) And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succorth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children. 38) And a mix multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle. 39) And they baked unleaved cakes of the dough which they brought fourth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victual. 40) Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years. 41) And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, event he selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt."
And here lies another major key when every major prophecy there is always resources. This means to you with every prophetic word God has already assigned a certain amount of wealth. Genesis 12 God spoke prophetically to Abraham. Genesis 13 God gave him the money to get started with. Genesis 14 He gave him somebody to help him with his assignment to better understand. Genesis 15, 16, & 17, he explained the times table of the prophetic word. So every prophecy has a time table it's important that you get that. There's resources and a time table. God will give you the help, people to help you concerning the prophecy.
Numbers 11:24-25 says
"And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the Lord, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the tabernacle. 25) And the Lord came down in a cloud and sapek unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease."
This is in great detail but it's really very simple and these are the issues that need to be addressed to help you better understand the prophetic. I call the ABC's of prophecy. When God gives you prophecy you know it comes from God because you know there's no way you can do it without him. Usually when God gives you a prophetic word you'll meet the people you need to help you go. So prophecy and vision is one in the same. Prophecy is just a different form of vision. Many times God will speak in vision but it's a prophetic vision.
Genesis 15:1 says
"After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward."
I'm trying to break this down and make it simple for any person who reads it. Because this is how prophecy actually works, it's in parts. So God tells you the same thing more than once it's because you had difficulties. It's not confirmation it's revelation. So this is another part to the prophetic. The preparatory process is key God put moss in the Nile River and allowed Pharaohs daughter to find him before he called him to be a prophet (Exodus 2).
I hope that this segment of the teaching on the prophecy is truly helping you and opening your eyes always remember every person is not called to prophecy to you. Jesus said to Peter I'm going to give you some keys to my kingdom. The revelation to keys here is very important a person that speaks in your life must have the power to speak to make a deposit in your spirit. To release an anointing upon your life to download patterns of program thinking and release over you which is called a prophetic declaration.
The bible says God watches over his word to perform it. What it should say that when a prophet speaks that prophet becomes responsible for his words. It's called prophetic respsonsibility. So God bless you and know that this calls upon your life you're entering into a greater realm of understanding. Remember the Lord said in wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. With understand comes success, you will have skill and a tongue of learn. Prepare yourself to make giant steps in God from now on. God's blessings will be upon you.
