SECOND RIVER: ESTABLISHED LEADERSHIP

The second river of prophecy flows through established leadership, or a position of authority in the Body of Christ. This person is placed in an office that gives him access to a different level in the prophetic realm. He taps into it correctly, and unintentionally, like a high priest, similar to what we see in John 11. Caiaphas uttered a prophetic word, not because he believed in Jesus, but because he was in a position of authority. Caiaphas was not a man who was filled with the Holy Spirit. He did not understand or believe in Jesus. However, he was in a position that Jesus and God recognized when it comes to the nation of Israel.

 

Even though the organized Jews did not accept Jesus Christ, Jesus did not oppose them. When the lepers were healed, Jesus even instructed them to go and show themselves to the priest. Jesus respected the authority of the office of the temple in his time. Being a high priest, by virtue, allowed him to tap into a river of prophecy.

 

You do not understand that it is better for you

to have one man die for the people than to have

the whole nation destroyed.” He did not say this

on his own, but being high priest that year he

prophesied that Jesus was about to die for the

nation, and not for the nation only, but to gather

 into one the dispersed children of God. (John 11:50-52, emphasis added)

 

 

As the high priest, he was anointed for that moment to speak out what was going to unfold. He may not have intended it the way God intended it to happen; for Jesus to die for the salvation of the entire nation and humanity, and that Jesus would resurrect from the dead. From his perspective, it was either Jesus goes, or the Jewish nation would go. Nevertheless, John recorded his statement and recognized a prophetic flow, coming from the position of the high priest as noted in the emphasis given in the passage above. Caiaphas prophesied about the death of Jesus on the cross. His motivation and purpose for uttering the prophecy was different from what it was supposed to be; nevertheless, this prophecy came forth, and it flew from the river of established leadership.

 

When you are in a particular church and you are given authority, you are in a position to receive a prophetic word regarding your church. This is true regardless of what others think of you or whether others agree with your word. You are actually obligated to follow this prophetic flow, along with other people in the church, whether you like it or not.

 

If you are not a member of church leadership, do no prophesy in public. First, write down your prophetic word and submit it under church authority. Let them do what they want with it. Your duty as a prophet and as a member of the Body of Christ is done.

Your responsibility is not to overtake your leaders. Apostles and prophetic leaders establish leaders in the local church for a reason. A position of leadership is not established overnight. It takes years for a person to be in an established position of leadership for a reason—access to this level of the prophetic realm.

What is your area of leadership? Where has God positioned you to lead?

FIRST RIVER: EXPERIENCE OF JOY

The first channel or river is the spiritual experience of joy. A prophetic word, more often than not, in the New Testament church bring joy to the hearer of the prophecy. Whether it is a corporate prophecy or a personal prophecy, most prophetic words give joy to the believer. It lifts up their spirits, and their inner core are touched. In the same way, the experience of joy can also move a person to prophesy. The Spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus, and so the prophet can move into this prophetic element. In the Bible, Hannah experienced great joy that her prayers were answered (1 Sam. 2). She is filled with joy and gratitude to the Lord, after all her years of crying before the Lord to have a baby. God heard her cry and gave her a son named Samuel. Hannah is filled with the joy of the Lord (1 Sam 2:1). When Hannah was praying to God, she moved into a prophetic space, because of this great joy. Her prophetic word came from the first river—the experience of joy.

“My heart exults in the Lord; my strength is exalted in my God.My mouth derides my enemies, because I rejoice in my victory. (1 Samuel 2:1)

 

Hannah was not a prophet. She was a godly mother. A person does not need to be a prophet to move into the Spirit of prophecy, as we’ve covered in the chapter dedicated to this level of prophecy. As a prophet, one could move into the levels that are stronger. Since Hannah was not a prophet, she can only move into the lower levels of prophecy, but she was able to tap into one of the channels of the rivers of prophecy because of her joy in the Lord.

In the first verse, Hannah said that her joy in the Lord allows her to smile at her enemies, which is not something a person can normally do. In the chapter before this, Hannah was crying because she was so sad with her case. However, God turned her mourning into joy. In this moment, her heart was overflowing with joy for the Lord’s grace upon her life. She says she can smile at her enemies because she has experienced the goodness of God. In the same way, believers can prophesy in the Spirit of prophecy when God answers their prayers or when they become a recipient of God’s mercy and grace. In great joy, mouths can open up in prophecy.

 

The Lord! His adversaries shall be shattered;

 the Most High will thunder in heaven.

The Lord will judge the ends of the earth;

 he will give strength to his king,

 and exalt the power of his anointed.” (1 Samuel 2:10)

 

 

In verse 10, Hannah moved into the height of prophecy. She is prophesying how God will give strength to His king and exalt the horn of His anointed. How do you think Hannah knew that a king was going to come? During her time, there were no kings, only judges. She moved into the river of prophecy in her experience of joy in God. She prophesied what her son would do, anoint the first king of Israel, Saul. Hannah was able to flow in the first river of prophecy, and out of her lips she declared things that probably did not even make sense ever to her.

 

Hannah prophesied of a coming king and how her son, Samuel would anoint the first one. Samuel was the last judge in Israel. Through him, Israel transitioned from having judges to having kings. Hannah did not hold any spiritual office, but she spoke a prophetic utterance because she worshipped God.

 

In Luke 1:46, we see another example of a person flowing in the river of joy in the prophetic realm. Mary, the mother of Jesus, was filled with joy and filled with the Spirit. Mary was not a prophet, yet she loved God. She worshipped God with this song. She prophesied something about herself when she said, “for he has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant. Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed” (Lk. 1:48).

 

In Luke 1, we see another example of someone flowing in the river of joy—Zechariah. He was filled with the Holy Spirit and was able to prophesy. An angel prophesied to him about the coming of John the Baptist. However, because he doubted the prophetic word of the Angel Gabriel, he has become mute until the time the prophecy has been fulfilled (Lk. 1:20).

 

 

After being mute for months, Zechariah’s heart was filled with joy when he was able to finally speak. He praised God, and the prophecies started to come out of his mouth.

 

And you, child, will be called the prophet of the

Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,

to give knowledge of salvation to his people

 by the forgiveness of their sins.

By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon

to give light to those who sit in darkness and in

the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” 

(Lk. 1:76-79)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Experience the Power of Prophecy as a gift to open your mind to receive the Mind of Christ.

 

Have you ever experienced being unable to prophesy? Are you feeling prophetically mute like Zechariah? Break this “stuckness” by beginning to praise God for everything good in your life. What prophetic utterances came out of this praise experience?

Introducing the Rivers of Prophecy

The rivers of the prophetic realm refer to the flow, the channel, and how the prophetic move of God would flow through our lives. The channeling of prophecy involves the methodology. By degrees, we are referring to the heights by which the “spirit of prophecy” can move into.

 

When it comes to levels, we are pertaining to the strength. For example, when you’re playing a game with different levels, the higher the level the more skilled you need to get. These levels talk about the degrees of strength, by which the “spirit of prophecy” can come upon a person. There are different intensities for different levels. The Spirit, who gives all the spiritual gifts and whom Jesus called the Helper, is the same one whom we call the “Spirit of prophecy.”

In the Book of Revelations, John called Jesus as the “Spirit of prophecy.” The word “testimony” comes from the Greek word maturios and that is the same word where we get the word “witness.” John is saying the testimony of Jesus is the evidence of Jesus Christ. The prophetic word we speak testifies or witnesses to Jesus; it serves as evidence of the power of Jesus. We see a prophetic stream flow from the Book of Genesis to the Book of Revelation. God’s people are considered a prophetic people because the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy.

 

A prophetic word does not necessarily mean it’s a prediction. Prophecy is the Word of God, as God gave it. Looking at the levels and degrees of prophecy allows you to understand that you can move into the ability to make a prediction in your spiritual growth. In Scriptures, the usage of the word prophecy has also been used in its predictive sense.

 

In Luke 22, the guards blindfolded Jesus, slapped and beat him. All the while, they were asking him, “Prophesy! Who hit you?” They were asking Jesus to give a word of knowledge of who did that—a show of omniscience. There is no doubt there is an element of prediction in the prophetic word. There are different degrees of prediction in different degrees of prophecy.

 

Jeremiah and Isaiah delivered the most difficult prophecies in the Old Testament because they spoke about the destruction of Israel, along with a message of comfort. They were also tasked to tell the people to repent. Jeremiah, who was one of the last prophets at the time of the destruction of Jerusalem, was known

as a weeping prophet.

 

Think about it, God carefully and specifically chose a man who was a compassionate tenderhearted man to deliver a message of doom and destruction. Jeremiah’s message in the Book of Lamentations was that his head was in waters and that rivers of tears were flowing from his eyes. The foundation of the Spirit of prophecy was comfort, not condemnation, regardless of the message. The Spirit of prophecy is grounded on edification and exhortation.

 

There is a predictive element in the revelation nature of prophecy. However, the Apostle Paul established in 1 Corinthians 13 that the foundation of each gift and its full development is love. Without love, each gift is incomplete, and can potentially be dangerous to the one who has it and to others. These spiritual gifts may be powerful, but they become nothing if they are not used out of love.

 

Prophecies unfold the mysteries of God before man. The foundation for the gift of prophecy, as well as every other spiritual gift is love. Love always seeks to comfort, to exhort, and to edify others. The seven rivers of prophecies can be understood according to the ways the Spirit of prophecy move. Rivers are available to every person. Understanding the nature of the rivers of prophecy helps you to move easily with the Spirit of God when it comes to prophetic activity, because these are the ways in which the Spirit of prophecy flows.

Recognizing the Prophetic Realm

The prophetic realm is a dimension we can access through the Holy Spirit. We are given access to this realm as believers to help us get to know this big and holy God more personally. The Scriptures tell us that every one of the fivefold ministry gifts of God is designed to equip us for the work of the ministry. Moreover, these gifts are meant to edify us as the Body of Christ. These gifts are also meant to bring us into the unity of faith. These spiritual gifts are supposed to bring us into the knowledge of the Son of God. What’s even more wonderful is they’re designed to make us perfect—which means, to be more like Jesus.

We are to grow up into the fullness of Christ. This process means a lot of immaturity, selfishness, and instability need to be taken out of our system. We also need to speak the truth in love. People in the fivefold ministry ensure that every part of the body does its share and that the body is feeding itself properly.

The prophetic realmis not meant to be mystical, spooky, dangerous, or even unbiblical. These are misconceptions that pushed a lot of believers away from the works of the Holy Spirit. The prophetic realm is an integral part of our growth process as Christians, as are the other four dimensions. The scriptures also imply that we can’t become all that God wants us to be in Christ without the ministry all of us have.

The Key of Prophecy

Jesus Christ is ultimately the grand theme of the Bible. Jesus said, “If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me” (Jn. 5:46). Jesus was promised to Adam and Eve, as the Seed who would crush the serpent’s head (Gen. 3:15). The closing words of the Bible declared that the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy (Rev. 19:10). Prophecy is about Jesus and Jesus is declared through a prophetic word. Jesus IS prophecy—He is God’s main message to humanity. Jesus is the reason why we

prophesy. Jesus is the “key” to prophecy. Even in a personal prophecy, where blessing and purpose is being declared upon an individual, the prophet is still directing this person to Jesus. The prophet is still saying, “This is your destiny in Christ. This is your story, as a part of God’s story.” Personal prophecies are still Jesus-centered prophecies.

 

Jesus’ name is the Word of God (Rev. 19:13). God is a God of order, and the spirit of the Word is not that of confusion, but rather of harmony and unity. All points to the Person and work of Jesus Christ. All of the prophecies in the bible point to Jesus Christ. All of these prophetic words were foundational for discovering who God is. All these biblical prophecies, biblical analogies, bible types are so rooted in Jesus Christ that his existence is the only thing that allow all of these things to make sense.

How is your story God’s story?

We Test Prophetic Words with Scripture

Jesus’ name is the Word of God (Rev. 19:13). God is a God of order, and the spirit of the Word is not that of confusion, but rather of harmony and unity. All points to the Person and work of Jesus Christ. All of the prophecies in the bible point to Jesus Christ. All

of these prophetic words were foundational for discovering who God is. All these biblical prophecies, biblical analogies, bible types are so rooted in Jesus Christ that his existence is the only thing that allow all of these things to make sense.

Prophecy must conform to the Word of God. The basic requirement for a prophetic word is for it to be in harmony with the Bible (1 Jn. 4:1); otherwise, it is from a different source (Gal. 1:6-8). As mentioned previously, a prophetic word must testify to Jesus. Scripture is clear that prophecies should reveal Jesus Christ (Rev. 19:10; 1 Jn. 4:2-3). They should glorify Jesus, not any other person. Third, there is also a moral test that the prophet must pass. Is the person giving the prophecy exhibiting moral character that is consistent with his office and ministry? The prophet must be careful to maintain his prophetic integrity (Mt. 7:15-16). The fruit of people with a rotten heart is rotten. However, the fruit of people who exhibit the fruit of reading the Bible and living it out in their lives is something no one can duplicate.

 

Members of the apostolic team and the Office of the Prophet can judge and measure if a prophecy is really God-given. They have a special anointing for discerning the spirit of a person, and they have the authority to do this.

THE ROLE OF PROPHECY IN THE BIBLE PART 2

In another account, the prophet Micah named Bethlehem (a tiny village) as the birthplace of the Messiah (Mic. 5:2); that was in 700 BC. Do you think they conspired to make this happen?There were four centuries before the crucifixion was even invented when both King David (Ps. 22; 34:20) and the prophet Zechariah (Zec. 12:10) described Christ’s death in perfect depiction and according to this mode of execution. Historians and New Testament writers also confirmed this fulfillment. Jesus of Nazareth died on a Roman cross. Moreover, as predicted, not one of his bones broke. A spear would thrust into his side to verify he was dead.

Another interesting fact is how a group of prophets came out with a united prophetic word. According to eye-witness account, Elijah’s supernatural departure from Earth was predicted unanimously by a group of 50 prophets (2 Kgs. 2:3-11).

 

The company of prophets who were in Bethel came

out to Elisha, and said to him, “Do you know that

today the Lord will take your master away from

you?” And he said, “Yes, I know; keep silent.”

Elijah said to him, “Elisha, stay here; for the Lord has sent me to Jericho.” But he said, “As the Lord lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you.” So they came to Jericho. The company of prophets who were at Jericho drew near to Elisha, and said to him, “Do you know that today the Lord will take your master away from you?” And he answered, “Yes, I know; be silent.” (2 Kings 3:3-5)

THE ROLE OF PROPHECY IN THE BIBLE

There is no theologically sound foundation for the principles of  Biblical interpretation that would be complete and sufficient, if prophecy were taken out of the picture. Prophecy makes up a critical part of the Bible. If we neglect it, as some people have mistakenly done, or to speak utter contempt against the subject of prophecy, it is discrediting divine revelation. If prophecies were not in the Bible, what would be left would lack meaning. Prophecy gives the necessary foundation to the Word of God. The beauty and hope in Bible is found in the fulfillment of prophetic word. Fulfilled

prophecy is evidence for the reliability and authenticity of the Bible. No one can conspire to fulfill a prophetic word, millenniums after.In fact, the first ray of hope that ever came into the word after the fall of man was the promise of a Redeemer (Gen. 3:15); it was a

prophetic word. This verse served as the first ever prediction in the world. It is a turning point prophetic word for the entire Word of God and for the entire human race.

Enoch is the seventh generation from Adam. He prophesied about the Lord’s coming and how it would give judgment to the ungodly (Jude 14, 15). The Passover in Exodus 12 was also a prophetic act—a Christological type—which Paul later on pointed out, “For our paschal lamb, Christ, has been sacrificed” (1 Cor. 5:7). He is declaring how Christ’s death was a fulfillment of this prophetic act.

 

Moses also received a great prophetic word from God about the Messiah:

The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet [a] like me from among your own people; you shall heed such a prophet. This is what you requested of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said: “If I hear the voice of the Lord my God any more, or ever again see this great fire, I will die.” Then the Lord replied to me: “They are right in what they have said. I will raise up for them a prophet[c] like you from among their own people; I will put my words in the mouth of the prophet,[d] who shall speak to them everything that I command. (Deuteronomy 18: 15-18)

 

Peter commented on this after Pentecost.Moses said, ‘The Lord your God will raise up for you from your own people a prophet like me. You must listen to whatever he tells you will be that everyone who does not listen to that prophet will be utterly rooted out of the people.’ (Acts 3:22-23)

 

Chapters 28, 29, and 30 are also critical prophetic words in the book of Deuteronomy. Many of the Psalms were also prophetic in nature. In Psalm 16, 22, and 40, the Messiahs’ sufferings are already illustrated. In Psalms 2, 45, 72, and 110, His glory is already portrayed.

 

Put these accounts together with the actual books of prophecy in the Old Testament, and a pattern of prophecy and fulfillment can be seen across Scripture. In 500 BC, Daniel proclaimed that the Messiah would begin his public ministry 483 years after issuing a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem (Dan. 9:25-26). Daniel also protected how Jesus would be killed and how this event would take place before the second destruction of Jerusalem. History showed these prophecies fulfilled to the letter in the life and death of Jesus. The decree for the restoration of Jerusalem was issued by Persia’s King Artaxerxes to the Hebrew priest named Ezra in 458 BC. Jesus’ ministry began in Galilee 483 years later. Four decades after the death of Jesus, Roman legions under Titus and Emperor Vespasian brought about the destruction of Jerusalem.  What is the probability of this taking place? You can do the math.

Prophetic Office or Spiritual Gift

There is a heavy line between having the spiritual gift of prophecy and being called to the office of the prophet. You cannot merely grow into the office of a prophet the way you can grow into a prophetic ministry or receive a portion of the prophetic anointing (mantle). The office of the prophet is a calling. It is a life mission.

 

In short, it is not through the development of a spiritual gift that one becomes called to this office. According to the Apostle Paul, the office of the prophet is a special governmental gift given by Christ (Eph. 4:11-12). It’s a special calling that not all believers receive. The Office of the Prophet means that a believer is under a particular spiritual gift or office that has been recognized by the church and its elders about how a person is authorized to engage in open ministry centered around the prophetic gift.

 

In order to possess this office, a person is required to have a sovereign calling, extensive training, and multiple encounters with the presence of God. Moreover, their credibility is founded on their long track record of accurate prophecies. These people are not infallible, instead their words are to be taken more seriously than those of other prophets. Prophets in the office are able to move in the spirit, the gift, the ministry, and the mantle, and so

much more. They are gifted by God to give personal prophetic words. They see deeply the motives of people’s hearts—the secret things. However, their job is not to humiliate or to judge, but to show and encourage people to do what God wants them to do. A person who is not called to the office of the prophet, but moves in this manner, can be dangerous. Imagine, a scalpel in the hand of a murderer can cut or kill. However, the same scalpel in the hand of a surgeon can heal. The prophetic has great potential for building and destroying, depending on the skill, training, equipment, and motivation of the one prophesying.

 

The office of the prophet is a trans-local ministry, it’s not just confined to the local church. The prophet in the office is usually called to travel all over the world with the same church movement or with another church movement. The Body of Christ is united and the office of the prophet serve the Body of Christ—not just the local church. The office of the prophet expands his influence and activity through relationships, by developing other prophetic ministries, as well as by finding opportunities to share the Word of God on a larger scale (i.e. church planting and world missions).

 

Is there anything in your heart that you need to confess to preserve the integrity of the prophetic ministry and office?

The Office of the New Testament Prophet

In the Old Testament, the Prophet Amos tells us, “Surely the Lord God does nothing, without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets,” (3:7). In the New Testament, we see the importance of the work of the Office of the Prophet:

“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are

citizens with the saints and also members of the household of

God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,

with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone,” (Eph. 2:19-20).

 

In the physical world, it is scientific that the foundation underneath a building is important for the integrity of the structure on top. Apostles and prophets are tasked to lay down the foundations of ministries—evangelists, pastors, and teachers are the structure-building ministries. There is a significant weight in the spiritual realm when the prophet begins to say, “Thus saith the Lord.” The prophet’s work is to bless, to establish, to edify, to confirm, to direct, to correct, to comfort, to root out, to destroy, to plant, and to build. Thus, the believer who is not truly anointed to be in this spiritual office should never attempt to copy this anointing or operate as if he is in this office.

 

In the Office of the Prophet, there are two kinds of prophecy: confirmational and creative prophecy. One is “confirmational prophecy,” when the prophet speaks a word over you that confirms what God already has been telling you prior to this word. The prophet’s word becomes a double witness of God’s leading in your life. It is intended to encourage you and to build your faith to pursue His plans for your life.

 

On the other hand, “creative prophecy” is when the Spirit wants you to do something or to launch something in your life, which you would have otherwise not considered without this word. The “creative prophecy” is an Amos 3:7 type of prophecy, setting in motion God’s plan from scratch. On the other hand, “confirmational prophecy” is an Acts 21:10-11 type of prophecy, confirming what you already know.
