Memorise: Surely, the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. Amos 3:7
Read: 1 Corinthians 12:10-12
Bible in one year: Isaiah 31-33
Another part of the revelational gifts is the gift prophecy. Without any
doubt, God knows everything about everyone He has created, and he knows
the end of a thing right from the beginning. Act 15:18 says,
"Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world."
You are one of the works of God's hands and He knows exactly how you
will end ever before He created you. May you end well in Jesus name.
Revelation 1:8 says God is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the
Ending. The gift of prophecy is therefore said to be in operation when
God tells His servant things that will happen ahead of time. This
involves having a pre-knowledge of events - which is just a bit of God's
inexhaustible sea of knowledge. God likes to give away such
information, only that He has too few friends He can give them to. Amos
"Surely, the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets."
It is sometimes good to know ahead of time about events, the plans of
God concerning them and that of the enemies. This will help you respond
to them appropriately - either to prepare for their arrival if they are
good, or to counter them and possibly prevent their occurrence if they
are negative. On the other hand, knowing everything before hand may
elicit negative responses such as sadness, depression, etc., especially
if it is a negative event that cannot be reversed. But generally, if you
know of crucial, destiny-evoking events before hand, it will give you
the opportunity to change them if they are unpleasant. For instance, on
the 31st of December of a recent year, I told the church some things
that God said would happen. He said there would be civil unrest and
civil war. Within one week of the release of that information, we began
to see its fulfillment in places like Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, etc. If not
for the prayers of the saints in and outside Nigeria for Nigeria, going
by Satan's plan for Nigeria, we will not be able to gather together as
we did that same year. Every negative prophecy against your life shall
not stand in Jesus name. Ask God for grace to be trusted by God to the
point of sharing His secrets with you before they manifest. On your
part, if you can obey God, love Him, worship Him and be discreet with
divine information, He will begin to tell you things before their time.
Action point: There are people God must inform of future events before
they happen. Ask God to make you one of them promising to pay the price.
