Loving God

Loving God

{ Day 293 }

However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"—but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. —1 Corinthians 2:9-10

Occasionally, the Lord may give directions to a church that would be difficult to act on without a strong prophetic confirmation. One such event is recorded by Eusebius, the third-century church historian. According to Eusebius, the entire body of believers in the city of Jerusalem picked up and left the city because of a prophetic revelation, and, consequently, their lives were spared. Immediately after their departure, Jerusalem was put under siege by Titus, the Roman general, and was destroyed in a.d. 70. Surely God established the credibility of these prophetic messengers in the eyes of the church before the coming crisis. It must have been a strong enough confirmation to be believed. I believe that there is a quality of prophetic ministry emerging in the body of Christ in our day that will achieve a similar kind of credibility in the eyes of both the church and, to a degree, even secular leaders and society. Many may scoff at this idea, but someday God might use prophetic ministry to actually save them from disaster!

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Father, I thank You that You will raise up a credible prophetic ministry in these last days that will help the world to know Your specific plans and purpose. Father, may we look to Your revelation to guide our lives and protect us from disaster.

What exciting times lie ahead
for the body of Christ!
