Opportunities, Timing and Connections

The prophetic lifestyle opens opportunities, timing, and connections.  Opportunities: having the ears to hear to be at the right place at the right time for yourself and others. Timing: none of us understand the timing of God because He is working on so many levels.  It takes a prophetic lifestyle to see beyond the limited vision of our normal dimensions. It can keep you sane where timing is concerned. Connection: Brings lives together for God team-ups, projects, events, etc.  We were never meant to do life alone (1 Corinthians 12:20-21).  In this day and age, this way of life is a total necessity for the body of Christ.  (Fourth excerpt from Melissa’s article “Prophetic Lifestyle”.)



Assembling and Admonishing

As the people of God assemble today, may they habitually admonish and encourage one another concerning the faithfulness of God in these days and may they have a heart to habitually assemble so that others may be edified.  “Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together [as believers], as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching.” (Heb.10:25, Amp)

What Shall Be

A prophetic mindset doesn’t merely consider present circumstances but looks into the future to see what shall be. When Isaiah prophesied the birth of JESUS, he did not say, “For unto us a child shall be born.” He said, “For unto us a child IS born.” (Isa.9:6) He spoke in the prophetic perfect tense which declares an action already completed. His prophetic mindset was deep within him and came out of his mouth declaring that what Jehovah intended would, indeed, come to pass (Rom.4:21). The prophet got into agreement with God in spite of present circumstances (Rom.10:16; 2K.6:15-17). Only in agreement with God (the mindset of the One Who stands above it all), and His purposes for the advancing of His Kingdom, is there hope that overcomes the impossibility of the challenges of a generation. All those who are born again of THE Prophet have some degree of THE Prophet in them and so, are prophetic.


Representative of Heaven

You are a representative of heaven during your lifetime. “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a [special] people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9, Amplified)  (Third excerpt from Melissa’s article “Prophetic Lifestyle”.)


Awaken to True Concerns

May the Lord awaken people to true concerns about life and our nation. (Amos 6:3-6, Msg)  “Woe to you who are rushing headlong to disaster! Catastrophe is just around the corner!…  Woe to those who live only for today, indifferent to the fate of others! Woe to the playboys, the playgirls, who think life is a party held just for them! Woe to those addicted to feeling good—life without pain! those obsessed with looking good—life without wrinkles! They could not care less about their country going to ruin.” May people awaken and embrace biblical values, and think and act righteously so that our families and our nation not go to ruin. We are praying you discover daily that you are awake to biblical values and righteousness for the sake of others.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)


What is a Prophetic Lifestyle?

What is a prophetic lifestyle? It is hearing and seeing God’s intention about the here and now, and what is to come on a regular basis.  Or as my Mom puts it, “PROPHETIC” is God revealing Himself, His thoughts, His will, His insights, His plans, His wisdom or instructions or warnings or the plans of hell.  Why is a prophetic lifestyle important? A prophetic lifestyle starts with a hearing ear. The statement  “He who has ears to hear let him hear” is made in all of the following passages: Matthew 11:15; 13:9; Mark 4:9; Luke 8:8; Revelation 2:7; 3:6.  To be said this many times must mean it’s rather important. This lifestyle lives in agreement with the intentions of God and stops enemy assignments from manifesting on the earth. (Second excerpt from Melissa’s article “Prophetic Lifestyle”.)
