If this is true, and it is, the only questions that remain are, “What is God saying?" "Why is He revealing the things He is saying to us' and "How should we pray and respond?" The bible is filled with answers about prophetic events. Amos 3:7 tells us, “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.”
The late great bible expositors, Jamieson, Fausset and Brown explain this passage by writing, “The secrets of God's purposes, that have been hidden from all are revealed to His prophets first. So that those who love Him, Especially His servants can obey their Lord in setting forth His purpose in the earth.
The Spirit of God speaks to us in a number of ways. He does so through the Logos or His written WORD. Which only carries power through the assistance of the Holy Spirit. I think believers sometimes forget that without His assistance the written word carries no real personal meaning. My father used to say, “The Bible is like a good steak. “You will never fully savor its goodness until you learn how to season it with prayer.” He was right. The bible becomes a supernatural book the moment we invite the Holy Spirit into our time studying its truths. Without Him, it’s simply another piece of religious literature. With Him, God's power is revealed in every part of our lives past, present and future. SECONDLY, God reveals His will to us through prayer. Which is far more than a page of contrived sentences composed of grammatically correct words and phrases.
Authentic prayer is communion. It's an intimate exchange. Meaning, we hear from God when we shut the world around us out long enough to give Him our full attention. So we can understand and receive what He is saying. THE THIRD WAY, God speaks to us is through life. Sometimes we see Him in the most unusual places. For example; God can reveal Himself through circumstance, challenges tests trials and events, that are occurring in and around our lives. And, while He may not be the cause of all that we face, He reserves the right to use them to speak to us through the unfolding events around us.
Which brings us full circle. God also chooses to reveal Himself through yielded vessels called prophets. Who operate in what is sometimes referred to as the Spirit Of Prophecy. He does this to prepare position and empower His people for the future! The Spirit Of Prophecy is the ability to capture carry and interpret spiritual insights concerning what God is doing and at times, what He is about to do in our lives. With that said, let me encourage you. Before you read any further, take a moment to pause and pray. Ask the Holy Spirit to anoint your mind and spirit. To give you divine discernment so you can see and hear what He wants to reveal to you concerning this new year and beyond! As you do I believe you will begin to catch glimpses of His glory in all that you see and hear moving forward into this fresh exciting season we are moving into!
