Praying for God’s Revelation
In this time of the Internet age, it is understandable if people would doubt a prophetic revelation if they still exist. That is considering that everything is now quick and easy with advanced technology. With all the communication tools from social media such as HTML, Java, CSS, web Apps and many others, it is so easy to send and receive messages. Anything seems possible that is why it continues to draw people away from their prayer lives.Bishop E. Bernard Jordan believes that this is part of the enemy’s plan to snatch people away from God.
Prophetic prayer, however, should not be regarded lightly because it is just as commanding today as it was 2,000 years ago. The 21st century may have achieved advancements in so many things, but all these are going to pass. This is exactly why mobile phones are considered outdated after only three months after its purchase.God’s prophetic word is not like technology that easily becomes obsolete. In fact, it is in prophetic revelation where believers can draw power as it battles with stressful events of modern times.
It is not easy to pray, let alone prophetic prayer. The gift to prophesy is not for everyone, but for people who seek and desire for it, Bishop E. Bernard Jordan can help discover one’s prophetic gift. In the school of prophets, there are training tools that need to be mastered to equip a believer with prophetic revelations.
There are several types of prayer, but prophetic praying is the highest form for it draws people closer to God, so He can reveal His promises, instructions and admonitions. With this type of praying, there are two ways where prophecies are revealed and understood.
Two Ways to Know Prophetic Prayer
Praying the Scriptures – This is the basic foundation for every prophetic message, and one of the best means to confirm a prophecy. It does not end, however, with prayer for a prophet must pray about its application at the present time. There will be times when the scripture will not agree with one’s desires. Bishop E. Bernard Jordan says that believers simply need to pray to God for strength, so they can accept the will of the Father as their own.
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD (Malachi 4:5-6).
This is an example of a difficult prophecy where tragedy was predicted. It may cause fear and trembling, but written prophecies are not dependent on anything. The believer’s role is simply to believe and to trust the Lord until the prophecy is fulfilled. The only requirement that God has when He reveals His message is to find someone who has the will to agree with His Word and to prophesy about it.
Praying Revelation – This method of understanding prophetic messages is different from the first one because it acts in accordance to the Holy Spirit’s revelation of the Rhema Word from God. A Rhema Word is a special gift that responds with utmost sensitivity to the Spirit’s urge. Revelations are usually manifested during special situations or events. These prophetic circumstances serve as a warning, encouragement or rebuke for a specific person. This method of prayer goes beyond one’s needs; instead, prophetic praying is used to help other believers find instructions from God. The skill of prophetic revelation requires reading of the Word consistently and be familiar with bible scriptures, until the Logos Word becomes a Rhema Word. This will nourish the gift of prophecy while it equips a prophet with courage and authority.
So then, faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God (Romans 10:17).
Every believer should desire and seek the gift of prophetic prayer for it has the power to change every area of one’s life. Whether it comes from the Logos Word or a Rhema Word, they are both powerful tools to receive power and prosperity.
“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy your young men will see visions your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy” (Acts 2:17-18).
