Hearing And Understanding Our Destiny
1. We must have spiritual hearing.
Jesus spoke to His disciples many times and told them they needed to hear certain things. They needed to hear the spiritual overtones of the simple parables He was speaking. It is the same with us here today. If you have spiritual ears, hear what God is speaking to us.
Matthew 11:15 NKJV - "He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
Matthew 13:9 NKJV
Matthew 13:43 NKJV
Mark 4:9 NKJV
Mark 4:23 NKJV
Mark 7:16 NKJV
Luke 8:8 NKJV
Luke 14:35 NKJV
2. We must have vision.
Proverbs 29:18 KJV - Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Proverbs 29:18 NKJV - Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law.
3. We must declare the steps of our destiny.
Romans 4:17b NKJV - God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;
4. We must understand why the Prophetic Word is relevant to us.
1 Corinthians 14
v1 - Desire Spiritual Gifts, but especially that you may prophecy.
v3 - he who prophecies speaks edification, exhortation, and comfort to men.
v4 - he who prophecies edifies the church.
v22 - prophesying is not for unbelievers but for those who believe.
v31 - all can prophecy so all can learn and be encouraged
v39 - desire earnestly to prophecy
