Prophesy! (The Verb, Not the Noun)

PROPHESY! We must declare the prophetic truth of God at every opportunity. Most people view prophecy in its noun form referring to a study that compares the Bible and history. But I challenge you to consider the verb “to prophesy” as a mandate and calling of God. It is a command. We must do more than study it, we must say it! Speak to the dirt, prophesy to the land, prophesy to the bones!

A prophecy, as a noun, refers a past tense message that was given. To prophesy is to speak now the promises of God, in the present tense. I hope you hear me. It is a call to action. It is time to let our voices be heard. We study prophecies to learn God’s voice and purpose. But now is the time to say it, speak it, and declare it. Yehovah’s promises are often left in the past, or even relegated to some distant future. But we must engage with the present tense God. He is the eternally existent One.

For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. 2 Corinthians 1:20

As you find your voice, it must be with confidence, a definite certainty. This comes not from practice or getting louder, it comes from the inner witness of the Holy Spirit of Truth. When Moses had called all the seventy elders together, two of them didn’t make it to the meeting, but the anointing was so strong they started to prophesy right in the midst of the people. When some, including Joshua, asked Moses to forbid them, his response was:

“Are you zealous for my sake? Oh, that all Yehovah’s people were prophets and that Yehovah would put His Spirit upon them!” Numbers 11:29

My prayer for all of us is that we would prophesy the Kingdom of God. How do we do this? We simply follow Jesus’ and Paul’s example:

And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people. Matthew 4:23

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:14

Or the things I plan, do I plan according to the flesh, that with me there should be Yes, Yes, and No, No? But as God is faithful, our word to you was not Yes and No. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us—by me, Silvanus, and Timothy—was not Yes and No, but in Him was Yes. For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. 2 Corinthians 1:17-22

Pray for and declare the peace of Jerusalem and rain in season!
