The Need For The Prophetic-Part 3

Posted By on Monday, June 27, 2016

The need for such a voice in our day is urgent. We can be encouraged by the fact that the Lord is calling apart many to become a part of this “corporate voice.” This time of preparation requires that we establish a “set apart place,” where we can meet with the Lord - an atmosphere in which we can quickly respond to His voice to come up hither, to sup with Him, and He with us.

The preparation of this atmosphere cannot be accomplished instantly, nor spoken into being. This spiritual sensitivity can only be developed through a continual seeking of the Lord’s presence.

Much value should be placed on the cultivation of an “abiding, anointed atmosphere” in which this impartation can take place. Most of us remember little of the messages we have heard, but if it was anointed and the spirit of impartation was present, our lives were greatly impacted.

The value is not in the words spoken, but in the level of anointing and the spirit of impartation that was present. The Lord has chosen the “foolishness” of preaching to convey His word.

“For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” I Corinthians 1:21

This preaching is as “foolishness,” because the value is not evident. Each word can be compared to a dump truck, which carries a cargo of “Spirit and Life.” The “anointing” is the fuel that moves the “cargo” into us. The “spirit of impartation” causes it to become a vital part of our prophetic enabling.
