The Force of the Prophetic Voice | Dr. James Tan | November 27, 2022

God built something in us over the past week. Dr. James Tan was with us Wednesday, over the weekend, and Monday night during Healing School, and the messages built upon each other. He dove into a topic that not many people cover: the prophetic word. Too many people focus on reading the Word, hearing the Word, and doing the Word. They don’t realize that they also need to invest in the Spirit and His work in their lives, which includes prophecy.

Dive Deeper:
God wants you to be discipled in both His Word and His Spirit. One way you will grow in His Spirit is through becoming more and more aware of prophecy. The more you tune your heart to the Spirit, the more you will see prophetic words coming through you and to you.

Learn to be sensitive to the anointing; one way you can do this is through following peace. The anointing is for your life. It equips you, specific to what you need to follow God’s direction on your life.

Honor and respect those who are generals in God’s army. By honor and respecting their gift, you’re making room for the anointing. Anointing requires recognition and cooperation, but they must follow each other. You can’t cooperate with what you don’t recognize. As you honor the anointing in others, anointing can splash on you!

God’s Spirit is a well on the inside of you, but He also wants to become a river. God’s Spirit isn’t just for you. It is for you to pour out upon others. Speak truth! Prophecy isn’t just about predicting things that will happen. It’s about proclaiming truth as well.

Keep your heart tuned to heaven. Activate God’s Spirit on the inside of you through treasuring it and being aware of His Spirit at work. Give His Spirit the proper place and respect.

Read About It:
2 Corinthians 1:21–22 KJV
Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

John 4:14 KJV
But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

John 7:37 KJV
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

Discussion Questions:
1. Have you ever prophesied over someone?
2. How does the fruit of someone’s life tell us about their connection with God’s Spirit?
3. What can you do today to prepare your heart to receive from God?
