A word given to me by my Lord

  1. 1. •Receiving a “Word” From the Bible.
  2. 2. CG Learning to Prophesy August 25, 2013
  3. 3. Let your spirit lead you • This time I’m sharing with you the way I analyze Words; most of the time a word from the bible will bring other scriptures to reinforce the given word or idea, this in turn causes that the Rivers of Living water within us may freely flow bringing in revelation.
  4. 4. The Holy Spirit helps us • John in his Gospel says that the Comforter will remind us from things that Jesus has thought us. • Paul says that the Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit, helping us to understand the mysteries of God. • The more bible you have in you, the easier to flow revelation will flow out of you.
  5. 5. A word given to me by my Lord. Revelation 3:8
  6. 6. Ready to go • On Tuesday July 30th as I was seating in the Airport waiting for my flight to Quito via Miami, I took my bible and asked the Lord to give me a passage from the bible that be suitable for the moment. • Immediately in my spirit I heard: Revelation 3:8
  7. 7. Surprise… surprise… • At first I thought I had received that passage before, but after reading it, I realized it was the first time that I have received that scripture as a “word” for my personal benefit. • It took me all the day to digest it, to accept it and to finally declare it and proclaimed its benefit for me.
  8. 8. Receiving a word from the Bible • Every prophetic word reveals the goodness of the Lord, and bring us closer to Him. • The main point of a prophesy is not to highlight our qualities or gifting, but to make us realize how much our Father loves us and how great and constant His favor is upon us.
  9. 9. First, Pursue HIS love • 1 Corinthians 14:1 (NKJV) • 1 Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.
  10. 10. Then we can edify, exhort and comfort. • 1 Corinthians 14:3 (NKJV) • 3 But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men.
  11. 11. Here is the Word: • Revelation 3:8 (NKJV) • 8 “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.
  12. 12. Analyzing the Word. • I’m taking this passage just as one unit, not relating it with the whole chapter; but as if would be completely on its own. • Its not to the church of Philadelphia, but it is for my personal benefit. • Some may say you are taking it out of contest, it could be; but that is how I felt in my spirit when receiving it.
  13. 13. I know your works. • An impartial expression of judgment. • Based on intimate personal relationship, He knows all of my works, the good and the bad ones. • He knows the motives and reason of my works which will be tested through fire. • Invitation to reflect, to correct, to amend. • To come back to the right trajectory, to come back to the right path.
  14. 14. 1 Corinthians 3:13-15 (NKJV) • All of my works will be tried by fire. • 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
  15. 15. Luke 12:48 (NKJV) • I will be required in the proportion I have received • 48 But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.

  17. 17. I have set before you an open door • 2 Corinthians 1:20 (NKJV) • 20 For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. • The door is already open, the important think is not to know where the door will take me, but to take the step and enter through it
  18. 18. James 1:17(NKJV) • 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. • If He has open a door for me, surely it will be according with His best plan for me, so I will enter through the door and them find out what is at the other side

An open door • Could be to come closer to Him, to learn to trust more in Him, to “see” as He sees. • Could be an uncommon opportunity to preach the Gospel. • To enter into that place of blessings that has been hard to get into. • To enter into my promised land… • To enter into the realm of revelation.
  20. 20. and no one can shut it; • Romans 8:31(NIV) • 31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? • Man does not have the authority to change the will of God on any subject. • No friend or foe can shut that open door!
  21. 21. He has the Key of David • Revelation 3:7 (NKJV) • … “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens” • May Savior, My King has open a door of opportunity for me and no one can shut it, now, what about that?
  22. 22. for you have a little strength, • At first this saddened me… • I thought, I’m strong, • I’m well fit, • I’m anointed, • I'm… • Pride can rise up from where you though there is none. Humbleness to repent and say teach me Lord will allow the flow of HS
  23. 23. 2 Corinthians 12:10 (NKJV) • Then, the Holy Spirit put in my memory this scripture: • 2 Corinthians 12:10 (NKJV) • 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
  24. 24. Psalm 18:1-2 (NKJV) • One of my favorite Psalms comforted me reminding me that HE is my strength. • 18 I will love You, O LORD, my strength. 2 The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
  25. 25. 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NKJV) • 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” • So little strength qualifies me to have His strength in me, and He becomes the horn of my salvation and my stronghold.

All Honor and Glory to Him.
