I SHALL PROPHESY


Man’s wisdom cannot be compared to God’s wisdom. Anything that comes out of the natural suffers natural limitations. Prophesying is an idea of God. It is where your tongue receives  divine enabling power.
  
Joel 2:28
 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

God desires that we become a channel through which other people shall receive the word of God. Prophecy is stronger than education ,background,experience and your exposure. Prophecy carries the breath of God. When God speaks ,men listen. Any man who prophesies is operating in the supernatural, because prophecy does not have it source from the natural.
1.Fore telling-Telling ahead of time things in the mind of Christ concerning individuals,nations and places
2.Forth telling –Speaking forth what is in the mind of God.
The gift of prophecy is not for predicting the future.it is limited to exhortation,comfort and edification.I am also a candidate to speak for God and to declare the mind of God. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is the doorway to the prophetic realm.

Numbers 11:29
 And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the Lord'S people were prophets, and that the Lord would put his spirit upon them!
The prophetic ministry is a lifestyle.

WHAT MUST YOU DO TO PROPHESY
Walk in Love
Your love for God and for people. Love will not envy,be jealous or be offended. The bigness of your heart for people and for God will determine the level of the prophetic you can operate in.

Earnestly desire to prophesy
  Your desire must be desperate .The proof of desire is pursuit. The price you pay will determine the depth you will enter. Empty yourself of who you are. Have a desperate desire. Prophesying is a risk. So , prophesy according to the proportion of your faith. But set your heart on prophesying.


Go For Knowledge

Hosea 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Jeremiah 3:15
 I will give you leaders who will be faithful to me. They will lead you with knowledge and insight.

Grow Your Faith
You must grow your faith in order to flow in the prophetic. Without faith you cannot speak for God.Be foolish enough to say what God is showing you.
Romans 12:6
 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith;

12 PROPHETIC LESSONS I HAVE LEARNT


If God wants to teach you a lesson, God will not use evil.God is too good to use evil to teach you a lessons.God only release good and perfect gift. Any time things defies the natural and attract national attention, it needs a prophetic response. Prophets carry the word of God. The prophetic word is the unfolding of God’s report. Every man has his own report. God too has His own report. Prophecy has divine ability to unlock the truth and mystery in the mind of God.
The thoughts of God are higher than the thoughts of men. There is something in the mind of God, but not everyone can unlock what is in the mind of God. The prophet romances divinity and have spiritual intercourse with God. Learn to recognize men and women who carry what you don’t carry. Your fruit will be determined by your root. Your source determine your result.

Lesson 1-Absolute Dependence on The Holy Spirit
Locating your strength in the Holy Spirit ,but not in the arm of flesh. Not depending on intellectual capacity. Your ability to depend on the Holy Spirit is very important. Have a strong relationship with the Holy Spirit
John 16:13
 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. For he will not speak on his own authority, but will speak whatever he hears, and will tell you what is to come.

Lesson 2 –Operating In The Prophetic Is Progressive
A baby of two months must not try to do what a baby of two years is doing. Your level determines what you will enjoy. Allow the spirit to operate progressively. It takes time. everything has a platform for manifestation.

Lesson 3-Right Environment ,Right People
People who believe in the prophetic listens to messages and read a lot of books. If you want to acquire a degree , you don’t go to basic school,you go to the university. That is the environment for acquiring a degree.

Lesson 4-Not Everyone Will Accept The Prophetic Ministry
It is not everybody who will accept the prophetic ministry . so you must be ready to be rejected and criticized. Jesus entered a city and was not accepted by some people. You are not better than Jesus,so it is not everyone who will accept you as a prophet.

Lesson 5- Walking In The Prophetic Is Not Enough
Walking in the prophetic alone is not enough. Go for wisdom,knowledge and ethics. You need to learn how to relate,teach and dress. You need to grow. Prophesying must edify the church. We preach God’s word by revelation,instruction, and by where we want to get to.

Lesson 6-You Need Prophetic Accountability
You cannot be right all the time. Anything that is not under authority cannot have authority.  You need to be under an authority. You need to be accountable to someone higher than you. You must not be a freelancer.

Lesson 7-The Prophetic Anointing Advertises Itself

Lesson 8-When The Prophetic And Music Marries, The Prophet Enters Into Another Level

Lesson 9-Anybody Can Operate in The Prophetic

Lesson 10-Never Be Familiar With The Prophetic

Lesson 11- You Will Be Misunderstood By Many.Others Will Judge You Wrongly

Lesson 12-The Love Dimension Enhances The Flow Of The Prophetic
Greater love equals to greater impact. You need to have a great dimension of love for God and people in order for God to make a lot of things naked to you.

MY THOUGHTS ON MINISTRY


The world is looking for people who has the answers to the questions of life. When you walk around, you would realize  that everything is asking you questions. God has given us the power to provide the answers. When God gives a man a ministry ,God also gives the pattern of the ministry.

Demonstration of The Love Of God
Ministry is about the demonstration of the love of God. Love to yourselves and love to your neighbor. Asking yourself what Jesus would have done in every situation. You can be anointed and gifted but if you don’t genuinely care about the people God has given you,you cannot serve God.

Think More About Longevity Than Speed
In ministry, think more about longevity than speed.Be very careful of your manners. The position of a pastor is a position of trust and integrity. Do not have an attitude that shows that you are an ingrate. If you want to go far build strong relationship with God.

Be Simple But Create A Level Of Mystery About Yourself
In ministry , you have to be simple but create a certain level of mystery and uniqueness about yourself and what you do. Whatever that is often seen is always despised. People get familiar with what is common and usual. Every object of mystery attracts human curiosity.  When something valuable comes so cheap suspect it. Don’t give to people who don’t value what you carry

Ministry Is A Divine Assignment
Ministry is not a natural assignment but a divine assignment. You cannot use the tools of the mechanic at the hospital. You cannot carry out ministry in the energy of the flesh.
Without unction,your Christian life is nothing. Never judge the unction on a man of God by the grammar he speaks,or his height or colour. 
 Acts 10:38  
  ''..how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

The unction is the difference maker. An anointing on a man of God will affect you depending on the value you place on it. There is nothing like the anointing.

Take The  Work Of God  Serious
You cannot have outstanding success in ministry when you approach the work of God with a casual approach. Nothing works on itself. Everything that is working is made to work. Someone must work it. The seriousness with which you approach ministry will determine the results you will receive. Nothing is free. Anybody who has become what he/she is today,is because that person has paid the price.

Dedication,Commitment And Faithfulness
Ministry is about dedication, commitment and faithfulness.

Helping People Get To Heaven
Ministry is about helping people get to heaven. The main vision and target of any ministry is to win souls for the kingdom of God. So any ministration that does not win souls for God is not of God.

The Right People
One of the greatest resources God can give any ministry is the right people. Your level of success is determined by the people around you. Wrong people will delay you. They will take you to prison. Jesus Christ took 12 right people to begin His ministry. Right people are people who will treasure your words even in your absence. Pretenders are people who cannot value your words. Even your wife or husband can determine how people value your words.


WHAT TO DO TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE GOD GIVES YOU IN MINISTRY
1.Empower them Through Training-indoctrinate them and help them to grow and be better people. Don’t grow and leave them behind. Don’t grow as your wife or husband is not growing
2.Protect Their Focus From Evil Voices- Every statement is intended to accomplish a set objective. So be concern about the voices they listen to. Apart from God’s voice , your voice must be key to them.
3.Give Them A Future- Give them a future and let them buy into the vision God has given to you.Show trust in them, rebuke them,correct and embrace them. Let them make your vision their vision.
4.The Voice Of The Holy Spirit-Teach them how to make the voice of the Holy Spirit the strongest voice in their lives. Everything must settle down to what the scripture is saying . The Holy Spirit can never lead you astray , so His voice must be the strongest voice. It is dangerous to marry a man or woman who is not listening to the voice you are listening to.
5.Teach Them How To Recognize Your Voice- Teach them how to make your voice the strongest in their lives. Look out for people who are quick to carry out your words, not those who are quick to explain your words. A man who respects you is a man who respects your words,put them into action,and personalize your words. Sons carry out the instructions of their father

GETTING PERSONAL WITH GOD

Our establishment as believers lies in having a personal relationship with God. If you want to be established, then you need to have a personal relationship with God. The reason why many people sit under this great covering but nothing covers their lives, businesses and marriages is that their personal or individual relationships with God is weak. I want to encourage you to develop a personal relationship with God. Personally I don’t need any one to motivate me to serve God and serve Him well, neither do I need any one to encourage me to win souls nor any one to motivate me to come to church.

Desire A Closer Relationship With God
You need to have a genuine desire to know God more. It is good when someone talks to you about your father but there is another level of relationship when you know your father by yourself. Every father wants to communicate with the children personally. In like manner, God want to communicate with us on a personal level. You need to yearn for that personal relationship with God. The kind of relationship where your private confessions and behaviors are not different from what you put out in public.
The depth of your relationship with God determines the level of communication He will have with you. Sometimes it is possible that God could be speaking to us, but we wouldn’t hear Him because we do not have that kind of relationship to understand or identify what He is communicating to us. You can only know someone’s voice when you relate and become close to the person over time. For some ,they are not matured enough to comprehend what God is saying. When someone is not matured, the person cannot handle certain levels of communication. The same way God can only speak deep things to us when we mature. It is your level of maturity that determines what God will speak to you about.

21 TYPES OF DANGEROUS CHURCH MEMBERS

In the kingdom of God many things will be entrusted to us by God. But if we cannot be trusted or counted faithful, we may lose the opportunity to do many things for God. God is not looking for talented and gifted people. It is your availability and commitment that will cause God to entrust great things into your hands. People or church members who cannot be trusted with little things will never be given great things . If God cannot trust you with little anointing ,then don’t expect great anointing. Many people cannot be trusted with true riches because they are not faithful with the unrighteous mammon. For you to handle great things in the kingdom of God,you must prepare your mind,heart,and body to a certain level of trustworthiness in order to handle it. My desire as a pastor is to see my church members live a higher standard of life; holy, excellent and loyal to the course of the kingdom of God. I want to pastor people who are so passionate about the things of God and ready to die for the course of God and the vision of the church. I want to see my church members preach and prophesy like I do. I want to see people who are financial and prayer bulldozers. I want to see church members who are doing well both spiritually and physically. But it all depends on our loyalty and commitment to the things of the house of God. People who are not loyal and committed in the things of God are dangerous personalities in the house of God. They are liabilities in the kingdom not assets. There are many characteristics of church members in the house of God which make them effectively dangerous in the kingdom. 


Mr. No Interaction (John 10;12-13)
This is someone who doesn’t stay around to interact with other church members after service or church activities.  They are the type of church members who are not willing to marry from the church. They are not in any department and even when they join a department they don’t interact with people from other department. Even as husband and wife you need to interact with each other for your marriage to do well. We want to see people in the church who interact with each other and try to know the problem of others and share in their concern. The simplest way to interact with people is to ask for their name, where they live, their occupation or where they are schooling and their marital status. You can then go further and exchange contacts.

Mr. and Mrs. Late Comers (John 20;24)
At any point in time in every service, there are Angels released to carry out specific assignments. When the service start with prayers, there are certain Angels released to carry the prayer of the saints to heaven. There are different Angels who are released  during praise and worship, likewise during the preaching. These Angels are released for different blessings; they come to bless the people of God but if you miss some part of the service you miss your blessings. These late comers think that some part of the service are not important. The reason why  believers are serving God yet they are struggling in their lives is because of their attitude in the house of God. Late comers are people who struggle in multiple areas of their lives. They only hear news. They don’t partake of the news.

Mr. Just Arrived (Matthew 2;14)
 This is someone who has just joined the church. It is time that can prove their commitment; they can only be trusted over time. It is time that can reveal many things about us and our character .it is in difficult time that our loyalty can be proven. A novice’s commitment can only be proven with time. 1Timothy 3;6

Mr. Not There Yet
These are the type of church members who are not ready to be birthed into the vision, custom, culture and philosophy of the church. Every church has its way of doing things. In SPIRITLIFE, we believe in giving our best to God. We believe in honoring men of God and fathers in ministry. We believe in dressing well, dancing new dances and singing new songs that glorify God. We are different from other churches. Therefore we expect you to adopt the procedure of the house.

Mrs. Slander(1Timothy3;7)
“Even so [must their] wives (be) grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things “
These are the gossips in the church. They receive every evil news and spread it around.

Mrs. Take It Easy
 These are the type of church members who are not ready to do anything they themselves have not planned to do. They are allergic to changes and introduction of new things. They are always stuck to the old format or old ways of doing things. They say things like “this is how we have been doing it”. I am not ready for anything new. But one thing we must know is that changes in life are inevitable.

Mr. Evil Approver (2samuel 13;1-5)
These are people who approve of evil things among the members.  They know people in the church who are fornicating and proposing to many ladies but they will never report them to the pastor. They know of people who are committing abortion and adultery but will never report them to the pastor. These people condone sinful acts. “ And Jonadab said unto him,lay the thou on thy bed,and make thyself seek;and when thy father come to see thee,say unto him, I pray thee,let my sister Tamar come,and give me meat,and dress the meat in my sight,that I may see[it],and eat [it] at her hand. 2 Samuel 13;5”
Jonadab approved of Annon’s evil intention to rape his half-sister Tamar. Like many church members they support evil in the church and encourage people to rebel against leadership. They say things like” the way the pastor was looking at your direction when he was preaching, he was preaching against you.”” Why would he want to disgrace you in public?” 
Our loyalty to our assignment is one of the basis on which we will be rewarded in heaven. Be loyal and remain faithful

Mr. & Mrs. Armed Robbers
These are church members who do not pay tithe, they rob God.” Will a man rob God?, Yet  ye have robbed me.But ye say wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings “ Malachi 3:8

Unfaithful Personality
 This is the church member who is not faithful in another man’s business. He or she goes to work late and leaves very early. He or she steals from the organization and from the employer. Such people manipulate figures in the office to illegally get money into their pocket. “ If ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s ,who shall give you that which is your own.?”Luke 16:12

Mr. Know it All
”…write: For these words are true and faithful” Revelations 21;5 “ I wrote unto the church  
This is a church member who does not take note when the pastor is preaching. He behaves as if he know everything

Mr. Zipped Mouth
This type of church member never response to the preaching . He never say Amen!! Hallelujah !!!or Praise the Lord!!! Whenever the man of God is preaching. When the mouth of the people is unzipped when they come to church , the church come alive.

Mr. Unknown Factor
Any new church member may be a dangerous and disloyal person until he is tried and tested.  “Therefore it is necessary to choose one of the men who have been with us the whole time the Lord Jesus was living among us, 22 beginning from John’s baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his resurrection.Acts 1;21-22. We must appoint people we know. We cannot appoint new people into leadership position. We can only appoint people who are tried and tested into leadership position.
Mr. Promise Breaker
This is a church member who does not keep his promise. if you stand before the congregation and vow to your wife or husband  you must endeavor to keep your vows. If you don’t keep your marriage vow you are a very dangerous person in the church. Be careful of people who break their relationships. They are people who pledge in church and never pay

Mr. Irritated
These are people who get irritated any time you correct them. “ Better[is] a poor and wise child  than an old and foolish king,who will no more be admonished “ Ecclesiastes  4:13

Mr. Big Shot
 This is a position conscious person ;he want reserved seat and special chair in the church. He doesn’t want to do anything for God and never desires to serve in any department and can also not be sent. Such a member hold himself in high esteem but has nothing to boast of. Such  a member has a big mouth but a small heart. He talks big but acts small. Mark such people and avoid them.

Mr. No Training
These are people who don’t want to be trained  or retrianed . they don’t come for conferences  or attend any training  programmes organized by the church.

Wounded People
These are people who have not recovered from their hurts. Their pastors,church members  an friends have hurt them and they have never recovered from their wounds. They say things like  “as for these people that’s how they are”; “who does he think he is?” “we have married before” be careful as you want to marry. Your situation of divore cannot change the marriage stethoscope.  Marriage is very good. The fact that you have had an unsuccessful marriage does not mean marriage is not good. Ask god to heal your wounds so that you can use your experience to help others.

Attackers of fathers
Be careful of people who attack their fathers. If you are a mother never destroy our husband before your children. Even if your husband is irresponsible never turn your children against him. As a child do your part to honor your father even if he is irresponsible.

Mr. Demas
This is a church member who is worldly. He love worldly things , he sings worldly songs. He or she is in a relationship with an unbeliever and unbelievers are his role model.

A Gift From Demas
One day one of my church members gave me a hand set as a gift. As I scrolled through the phone you wouldn’t believe what I saw, pornographic pictures and videos. I was surprised because this was someone I knew to be very spiritual, unknown to me, he was a Demas in disguise. Another time someone gave me a laptop, when I tried playing some of the songs on the laptop I realized they were all worldly. Demas has all the latest worldly songs and movies on his device but he doesn’t have his pastor’s messages and videos on his device.

Mr. M.F.W
 This is someone who has moral and financial weakness.

Mr. Season of Crisis
This is a church member who leaves the church in times of crisis. Whenever they hear any scandal about their church or the pastor they will be the first to leave. They are shallow and unpredictable people. These church members will never analyze any issue before taking a stand.  They don’t have an investigative mentality.

DEVELOPING AND OPERATING IN THE PROPHETIC GIFT

Walking In Love
One of the greatest ways of developing the prophetic gift is by walking in love. The only thing that define God is love . God is love. Prophecy is meant to direct people to Jesus.Any man who is bitter,offended or wounded cannot operate in the prophetic. Every word from God takes or assumes the shape of the man who delivered it.
 But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,Nor have entered into the heart of man.The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
                                                                                                             1 Corinthians 2:9
                                                                                                 
What the eye cannot see, ear cannot hear ,God reveals it to the one who has devoted himself to love God and people. The greater your love for God, the more easily you can prophesy. The depth of the prophetic is rooted in the depth of your love. Love is the greatest.

Prophetic Atmosphere And Environment
A university atmosphere produces a university graduate. A law atmosphere produces a lawyer. So, the environment plays a great role when it comes to the prophetic. The prophetic is enriched and sharpened by being in the atmosphere of the prophetic. Spend time with people who are stronger in their gift than you.

Stay In The Word
In order to grow in the prophetic, one must keep saturated in the written word of God.This is the river out of which the flow of the spirit shall increase.

Stay In His Presence
Fellowship and spending time with God and in His presence can cause you to grow in the prophetic. God is the giver of every good and perfect gift. Developing a strong relationship with God is the surest way to develop the prophetic.
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
                                                                                                                    Isaiah 40:31
Pursue The Prophetic-Strong Desire
The measure of the prophetic you are able to experience and walk in is determined by your hunger.Covet to prophesy.
Pursue love and be eager for the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy.
                                                                                                     1 Corinthians 14 :1
 So then, brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid anyone from speaking in tongues.  And do everything in a decent and orderly manner.
                                                                                                     1 Corinthians 14 :39 -40

Impartation and sensitivity 
Exercise your gift in faith

THE PASTOR,THE PASTOR'S WIFE,AND THE CONGREGATION

As a pastor, never give your church the first place in your life over your family or your wife.
Your wife should be your first priority after God. When you look at every successful ministry, you will see a good marriage attached
GOD- WIFE(FAMILY) – CHURCH
The only reason why you have a right to lead or take care of a church is because you have been able to take care of your wife (family).
The level of respect people give to your wife is largely dependent on the image you create about your wife as a pastor. It is the responsibility of the man of God to project his wife
As a pastor or as a married man, nobody in your family must have the right to rebuke your wife. In this life God will bring a lot of people your way but one person you must not take for granted is your wife.
You are the direct picture of your wife. Your wife is the reflection of your wisdom.
Many pastor’s wife and children do not want to have anything to do with the church or ministry because some men of God neglects their wife or children for the church. They rank their church over their family.

THE PASTOR’S WIFE
The pastor’s wife must not give more attention to the children over the husband (the pastor)
The pastor’s wife is a wife to the pastor and a mother to her children and not a wife to the children. The attention the pastor’s wife pay to the pastor (husband) should not reduce because of the children.
The pastor’s wife has become the personal counsellor to the pastor (husband) ,and therefore easily influence the decision of the pastor. Many pastors who breakaway from ministries or churches usually do so because of what their wives have been telling them.
The image of the pastor is the wife. When you see the pastor’s wife you have seen the pastor.

HOW SHOULD THE CONGREGATION TREAT THE PASTOR’S WIFE
The wife of your pastor is not your friend. She is your spiritual mother. She is the mother of the church.
1.See your pastor’s wife as your pastor. Treat her in the same way you will treat your pastor
2.Honour your pastor’s wife, and respect her in the same way you respect and honour the man of God.  The sacrifice your pastor’s wife go through you cannot go through.
3.Protect the image of your pastor’s wife. Don’t give anybody the opportunity to tell you something bad about your pastor’s wife. Do not tolerate or entertain any gossip about your pastor’s wife.
4.Treat her with protocol. The pastor’s wife has equal authority just like the pastor. She must be treated with the same protocol and protection given to the pastor
5.Shower her with praises. Praise her, celebrate her and talk good about her.

EMBRACING AND STIRRING THE GRACE ON A PROPHET OF GOD

In 2Chronicles 20:20 Jehoshaphat said…’’believe in His prophets and you shall prosper….’’  Your prosperity lies in your ability to embrace the prophet God sends your way. So if a man lacks prosperity in his finances, business, career or any aspect of his life, it could mean that his belief in the prophet is shaky. It is very sad to be around a prophet and not profit from his anointing. A prophet is a prophet at any point in his life, but his anointing become more effective, sharper and more powerful when he is in operation in his office as a prophet.When you embrace a prophet. It means you are ready to embrace the gift of the prophet. When you become too need conscious, you cannot profit from the prophetic anointing. 



Connect to the Prophet Not only to Collect, But To Contribute To His Vision
Not all people who followed Jesus received the anointing. Peter carried the grace that was on Jesus because Peter was just not around Jesus to draw; but  Peter was around Jesus as a supporter of His(Jesus) vision and ministry. Any time you connect to a man of God not only to collect but to contribute to his vision, you provoke what the man of God carries. Do not be around a prophet only for what you will gain without being concerned about his welfare. You need to be connected not only to receive but to give as well. There is a dimension of the prophetic you will never experience until you have stirred up the grace upon the man of God.

Avoid Wrong Attitude-Mark 6:5-6
Jesus operated in all the fivefold ministries. But Jesus got to  places  where He could not do many miracles; not because He was not anointed but because of the unbelief of the people. A man may be graced  but wrong attitude shown by the people around him can cut the flow. You need to be careful how you relate with prophets. If you relate to prophets on the level of friendship, you will receive a friendship reward. But he that receives a prophet in the name of a prophet receives a prophet’s reward. When the Shunamite woman saw and received Prophet Elisha as a prophet, she received her miracle baby. Many people do not have the ability to receive because they treat the prophet with disdain. If you believe in the prophet, you will receive a prophet reward.

Obey and Act on your Prophetic word
Having a prophetic word is not enough to give you what you must receive; you need to have a prophetic direction. Prophetic directions demand absolute obedience to deliver to you your prophetic word.

Prophecy Rewrote The History Of My Life
Many years ago, my dream was to become a professor not a prophet but one prophetic word changed my life. A prophet prophesied to me that I would be a prophet and for that matter I would have nothing to do with the corporate world. Without that word, I would have jeopardized my purpose. If you have a vision which is not in line with God’s vision, it leads to destruction. When a man speaks, he speaks out of the strength of his office. So when a prophet speaks from his office, it carries power.

THE INFLUENCE AND POWER OF THE PROPHETIC WORD

Everyone’s life can be fast forwarded by the prophetic word.  With a prophetic word, God can go into your future and bring the future into the now. In the realm of the spirit there are things that belong to you; and by the power and influence of a prophetic word you can take what belongs to you in the future now. Saul was a donkey chaser, when he came into contact with the prophet Samuel, the prophet revealed to him the mind of God concerning his life. Samuel made Saul aware that the mind of God concerning his life was not to be a donkey chaser but to be king of Israel. Many people are walking in life without knowing the purpose of God concerning their lives. Some may never discover the purpose of God concerning their lives until a prophet comes.


What is the anointing?
The anointing is the presence of God that lifts a man from the realm of the ordinary into the realm of the extraordinary. It is about divinity having a spiritual interaction with humanity, in order to introduce the principles and the power of God that makes a man walk and talk like God. When a man is anointed, that man carries the grace of God that disgraces the spirit of disgrace an releases anew unction for the next race.
The anointing is the hand of God that comes upon a man and causes him to do things that he cannot naturally do. The anointing upon a man is neither in his height,the grammer he speaks, his education nor the car he drives. You cannot tell form the face of a man whether he is anointed or not, but the effects are undeniable and can be seen. That is why an anointed man need not tell people that he is anointed since the anointing advertises itself
When Elisha was walking with Elijah,he saw the grace upon Elijah and he desired a double portion of that grace. Immediately Elisha received the anointing on his life,he began doing humanly impossible things and things that Elijah did. It is dangerous to mock and fight an anointing on a man of God, because the anointing has a protective mechanism that reacts to any offensive.

Operation of the prophet is different
Among the five fold ministry the operation of the prophet is different .Prophets are neither pastors nor evangelists; they declare the word of God as it is and it comes to pass. As a prophet of God, I have a word from god that has the power and the influence to give you what you desire. This word will change everything about your life. In 2014 you must desire to hear the word of God. It was one word from a prophet of God that made me what I am and gave birth to SPIRITLIFE.One wor can turn your life around..it can make the barren woman bear children. Desire for the word of God in 2014 and cleave to it.

What is a prophetic word?
The prophetic word is a divinely inspired word of God, anointed and charged by the Holy Spirit which carries the power of God that can change lives and situations. Every genuine prophetic word has its root from God. In Genesis 1:1 and God spoke the word “and God said”. This means God prophesied, declared and issued a command. Anytime a prophetic word comes into your life, you must know that it is the divinely inspired word of God which has the power to move you into the future and change your present. The prophetic word is all about hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit and speaking it to affect nations, a community, a group of people and a situation around. A prophetic word is the declaration of the voice of the Holy Spirit that reveals the mind and the purpose of God concerning the church, an individual, a community ,a nation or a situation.
The prophetic word brings correction, instruction, encouragement and reprove to the body of Christ. Joseph released one prophetic word into the life of King Pharaoh  and turned things around in Egypt. The prophetic word is also the word that is established by God as a channel of blessings and a voice of revelation which reveals the mind of Christ concerning His body(church) any agenda on the face of the earth is first communicated to the men called prophets . When God communicates His purposes to the prophets, then He can execute His plan.

Prophetic Directions and Instructions
Any man God has called into the office of the prophet moves around with directions and instructions. Jesus met a man who was born blind and He gave him a direction and an instruction which brought about his healing(John 9;1-8). Elisha also gave a prophetic direction and instruction to Naaman the Syrian to go  and wash in the river Jordan and he received his healing(2 Kings5;1-7) . Prophetic words are as powerful as prophetic instructions and prophetic directions. There was a time God sent Elisha to the widow who was preparing to eat her last meal and afterwards die. When Elisha met the woman in the time of famine, he gave her an instruction and a direction which made her survive the famine.
You readiness to follow prophetic directions
Many people are not ready to follow prophetic directions but they want a prophetic word. There is power in the prophetic direction and instruction. Prophets are called and anointed with supernatural ability to discern the mind of God. They are able to walk into times and seasons and perceive the timings of God as it relates to a specific situation. When a prophet walks into your life,he enters with the totality of his office and the grace upon his life to turn situations around.

REASONS WHY YOU MUST WIN SOULS

If you are a Christian and you don’t win souls its a sin just like lying, getting drunk, hatred, murder or adultery.it is a wicked and terrible sin. Every preacher and every Christian ought to win souls. Any Christian who does not win souls is sinning. Here are some reasons why we must win souls.


Because it is the great commission (Matthew 28;18-20)
“And Jesus came and spake unto them ,saying, All power is given unto me in Heaven and in earth.Go ye therefore ,and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father,and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost;teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you;and ,lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen”
We call this the great commission and it contains three teachings. First, go and teach all nations the word-that means make disciples of men in all nations by teaching them how to be saved. Secondly, baptize them. Third, teach them to observe all things that Jesus commanded us. Soul winning is the main thing with God. If it isn’t first with the preacher, then the preacher isn’t right. If souls winning isn’t the first thing with the church, the church isn’t right . When we fail to win souls we commit the sin of disobedience to the main command that Jesus Christ ever gave. We have an all-inclusive command for every Christian in the Great Commission. Not to obey that is not to obey Jesus on the one thing He died for, the main thing He gave instruction about.

To Avoid Being Held Responsible For The Blood Of Others(Ezekiel 3;17-19)
 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[a] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.
This passage is perhaps one of the clearest of all scriptures on the continuous command to evangelize and reach out to the lost souls. Ezekiel is told that  he is the watchman for the house of Israel  and he need to warn unbelievers  of their evil ways  in order to save them from God’s judgment . God told Ezekiel that He will hold him accountable for those that he has not evangelized to who die in their sins. Sadly , there are many Christians who do not care about the warning to the wicked  for them to turn from  their evil ways and telling them about the good news of Jesus. Consequently many Christians will have bloody hands when they get to heaven and would be judged for their failed efforts to evangelize. Some claim that unbelievers generally do not repent after reading tract, or having sermon preached to them as many rather argue the existence of God, the authority of the Bible and make other  attacks against Christian faith ,therefore there is no need to evangelize. I am convinced and believe that the best way to evangelize is clearly to “preach the word” and let the Holy Spirit take care of the rest. You are expected to keep watch over your cell members, your family,your household, your colleagues at work, your church members etc. This is because if any of these miss heaven you will answer for their blood.

Soul Winners Are Wise(Proverbs11;30)
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he that winneth souls is wise”
The Bible describes a soul winner as a wise person . what does it mean if we do not win souls? Let us answer this for ourselves.

To Deliver Souls From Destruction (1 Timothy 2;4, 2Peter3;9)
It is not in the plan of God that any soul should get lost. That is why He gave His only begotten son Jesus Christ  to die in our place so that we shall inherit eternal life. Soul winning should be the focus of every believer. There should be urgency to reach out to others. Someone once said,if we really believe in the horror and pain of the fiery devils in hell, then we will crawl across broken glass to tell one poor,lost soul about Jesus—who(Jesus) is the only way to escape an eternity in the awful place called hell.

Because It Glorified God(John 15;8)
“ herein is my father glorified ,that ye bear much fruit;so shall ye be my disciples.”
There are those who say that our prime motivation is not to win people to Christ but to glorify God. I do not disagree with them, but I must remind them that the Bible clearly says God is glorified when we bring forth much fruit and one of the fruits we bear is souls. How many souls have you won since you became born again? Be fruitful. Win a soul today.

CREATING A PROPHETIC ATMOSPHERE

Atmosphere is very important when it comes to the prophetic. The prophetic must not be approached casually.The right prophetic atmosphere and attitude compels the release of a prophetic word.Until we know your source we will doubt your result. Atmosphere determines creativity. A man can be gifted but when he finds himself in the wrong atmosphere, his gift cannot function.  There is an atmosphere that ensure that your prophetic word comes to pass. God has released the prophetic as the answer to the impossible situations on earth. Therefore , an encounter with the prophet is supposed to make you be able account for something. 
Nobody meets a prophet and remain the same. Every man of God carries unction and oil that cannot be seen. A man of God is a man of God everywhere.However , your sense of value will determine the dimension of virtue you will draw. Atmosphere determines what happens. You either profit by encountering  a prophet or you fall into the pit by encountering a  prophet.
The difference between your presence and your future is the word introduced into your life. When God approves of who you are ,the earth will listen to you without question. You must create an atmosphere that can cost your destiny

The Prophetic Atmosphere You Need To Create 
Create an atmosphere that place value on the man of God. Changing your plan to accommodate the plan of Jesus. Your value for the man of God and the things of God will determine the things you will sacrifice to meet the man of God. Your life might be the way it is because of lack of value.

Create an atmosphere of expectation.  Enter the presence of God everyday with expectation
.
Create an atmosphere of obedience . We are not where we are supposed to be because of disobedience . prophecy is stronger than decision. What obedience must do, prayer will never do it. Obedience  will justify you at the end of the day.

Create an atmosphere of sensitivity . Be alert and sensitive to the things of the spirit

Create an atmosphere of prayer and sowing of seeds

Exhibit and put up an uncommon attitude . Attitude of faith and expectation
