The gift of prophesy entails being told or shown future events by God.
What are the implications of such revelation gifts? It is to enable you
see the invisible and to hear the inaudible. Believe it or not, when we
gather in God's presence, there are big, angelic beings in our midst and
around us. One reason God may not want to show them to us is so that we
do not become frightened or distracted. Because angels are usually of
great size, if your eyes are open to see them, the first thing they will
say to you is, Fear not. This season, the Lord will open your eyes to
see angels and they will minister effectively to you.
All around us, we are surrounded and bombarded with messages in the air
waves from local, national and international radio and television
stations as well as the internet. If you look at the sky, you will see
nothing because these broadcasts are invisible, but if you have the
appropriate equipment, and begin to tune to the different stations, you
will be amazed at the number of information that is passing through the
airwaves that the fellow who lacks such equipment may be completely
oblivious of. In the same way, there is so much information being
transmitted from the heavenly 'radio and television stations'. God is
constantly speaking: He can be saying so much yet you may be unable to
hear a single word because you lack the right equipment. It takes
possessing one or more of the revelational gifts to enable you hear the
inaudible and see the invisible. In 1 Kings 18:41, Elijah told Ahab to
go and eat and stop worrying because he has heard the sound of the
abundance of rain. Nobody else could hear that sound because they did
not have the gift. The truth is, when a major earth-shaking event is
about to take place, the heavens will be pregnant with this information.
If you can key into the spirit, you can spiritually sense what is
coming. Do you know you can sense your turnaround? You can sense your
breakthrough with the help of these gifts. Ask God for the revelational
Prayer point: Father, make me sensitive to heaven's communications. Henceforth, let events no longer take me by surprise.
