Working With the Prophetic Word

Wednesday June 18, 2014

1 Timothy 1:18-20 says that some people reject faith and good conscience and become shipwrecked. If you are sitting on a prophetic word, do what you need to do. Know God and rightly divide the Word so you can discern what the prophetic word is. There is a birthing process. Fight with the Word. Resist fear, because it takes you out of the place of faith. Know who your enemy is. Hang onto your faith and keep a clear conscience. Flee some things and pursue and fight for your faith (1 Timothy 6:11; 2 Timothy 4:7), pull down strongholds daily (2 Corinthians 10:4-5), and endure hardships (2 Timothy 2:3-4). Receive the word you’ve been given and operate like it’s true. Love from a pure heart and good conscience (1 Timothy 1:5). Don’t put more stock in “a word” than the Word of God. War with the Word of God. You have the Holy Spirit (1 John 2:20, 27). As you yield to God, He can download to you. The Holy Spirit will teach you if you abide in Him. Live in a relationship with Him. What is the proper response to prophecy? #1 Discern so you can reject or receive the word. #2 Faith. #3 Obedience. #4 Patience. #5 Humility (Submission to God’s Spirit). #6 Meekness. #7 Submission to His lordship.
