  2. 2. Using scriptures to prophesy  We will use the power of the Word of God to speak in our own lives and in the lives of others.  The Power of the Word of God is active and alive.  We can use any scripture to activate the power of God for our benefit, and for the benefit of others and the Church!

  7. 7. For Strength  2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NKJV)  16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

  11. 11. For Peace  John 14:27 (NKJV)  27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.   John 16:33 (NKJV)  33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
  12. 12. For Peace  Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV)  6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Ephesians 2:14  Isaiah 9:6

  16. 16. For Encouragement  2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NKJV)  16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
  17. 17.  Use the reach deposit of the word of God that is within you.  Biblical passages as the selected ones in this unit will pop out from you, as the Holy Spirit will remind you of what the lord has taught.  The Holy Scriptures will naturally come out of your innermost being.  Let the river of Living Waters freely run out from you.
  19. 19. Isaiah 55:10-11 (NKJV)  “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, 11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. 10  There is irresistible supernatural power in God's word; it will not return to Him empty.  God’s Word will accomplish His desires and purposes.  The Word of God has heaven-backed power!  When you speak the Word of God, you are tapping into limitless power!
  20. 20. Jeremiah 23:28-29 (NKJV) “The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream; And he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat?” says the LORD. 29 “Is not My word like a fire?” says the LORD, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?  28        Think of the Word of God as a hammer. Picture it. You can see the hammer. A hammer can drive home a nail = positive results. A hammer can break down obstacles = overcoming negatives. “SPEAK [God's Word] faithfully” and (1) all kinds of positive things will begin to happen, and 2) all kinds of obstacles and opposition will begin to be broken. Three times Jesus spoke to Satan: “It is WRITTEN!”, and Satan’s schemes were defeated.  There is great power in the spoken word of God.
  21. 21. John 11:43-44 (NKJV) Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!”44 And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.” In Genesis “God said, ‘Let there be...’ ” and light; sun, moon, and stars; animals, birds, and fish; and more came into being from God's spoken word.  43    Speak out God’s Word to your "Lazarus": Something you thing is dead. “Devil, come out, because you are overcome by the blood of the Lamb.” “Cancer, leave my body, because by the wounds of Jesus this child of God was healed.” “Finances, come into line, because my God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory.” 
  22. 22. John 8:51 (NKJV)       Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death.” 51 Talk about the mighty power in the word of God! Keep His Word, and you will “never see death.” Not just “know” His Word, but “KEEP” it. That word says, “I will raise him up.” That word says, “Whosoever lives and believes in me will never die.”  That word says we shall reign with Him forever.
  23. 23. John 8:31-32 (NKJV)  31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”  His Word will set you FREE!  “Drugs/alcohol, I don’t need you, because the Son of God has set me free!”  That addictive behavior — “You have no more control over me, because Jesus has set me free.”  An uncontrollable habit? — “I am more than a conqueror through Him that loved me.”
  24. 24. John 17:17 (NKJV) Psalm 119:11 (NKJV)    17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You. 11  The Word of God in our hearts is a powerful antidote to sin.  Temptation comes through the eyes? — “I made a covenant with my eyes.”  Temptation to pride? — “God exalts the humble.”  Temptation to the flesh? — “God will with the temptation make a way of escape.”  Temptation to dishonesty? — Psalm 51:6 Surely you desire truth in the inner parts.
  25. 25. Acts 10:44, 46 (NKJV) The Holy Spirit Falls on the Gentiles While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word.  44  46 For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Speak the Word of God to people to open for them new dimensions in the Holy Spirit.  Tell people what God’s Word says about the mighty baptism with the Holy Spirit. Tell people what the Word of God says about divine healings, prophecy, miracles... Tell people from God’s Word to pray for and expect the demonstration of the Holy Ghost and power.  
  26. 26. Romans 10:8 (NKJV)  But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 8   That centurion in the bible understood this. He asked Jesus to     speak that word of faith, and his servant would be healed. Peter understood this. He spoke out: “Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you” Paul understood the importance of the spoken Word of God: “Timothy, preach the Word!” The all-powerful Word of God — “the word of faith” — “is in YOUR MOUTH” to be spoken. SPEAK God’s Word, and expect the infinite power of that Word to bring forth astounding results.
  27. 27. Use the scriptures in the slides to speak into your life, the life of your friend PROPHETIC ACTIVATION #2
  28. 28. The spirit of the Lord God is upon me…
  29. 29.  Read the scripture or thought,  Let the Holy Spirit stir up in you an idea,  Once you have it, speak it out.  Let it come naturally, don’t try to adorn it.  Use it to speak into your own life or into the life of your family members, friends, coworkers, etc.
  30. 30.  I’m encouraging you to first use the Word of God to start declaring things into the lives of those whom you are ministering to.  Remember this: every single redeemed person has a ministry!  This is a common ministry, and it is the Ministry of Reconciliation.  So speak with love and compassion.
  31. 31. The scripture… example
  32. 32. The application… example  Because God possesses everything, He is supplying you with all you need. Get ready to receive your blessing.  God is a natural giver; He will continue giving me provision for me and my family; He is interested in my prosperity.
  33. 33.  Prophecy is not about fancy words, but about speaking the truth of the Word of God.  Prophecy is about showing people who God really is and helping them to know the promises and desires of God for His people.  When we prophesy, we are called to speak in the name of God, we are His ambassadors and as such we have delegated authority.
  34. 34. The scripture… example
  35. 35. The application… example  Prophesying for a person that you have never seen before, you don’t know if that person is a believer or not; but you know that is Love.  God has an everlasting love for you, He is rising up your faith in Him, so that you can see and understand His plans for you, then your hope is going to bring you into his presence and start to receive the greatness of His love, His love will never leave you.
  36. 36.  Now is your turn.  Not just think of the phrase, but speak it aloud.  Better still, repeat it many times, for as you repeat it, the truth of His word will take effect in your spirit and you will start to believe that what the scripture is saying is truth for your life.  You are on your way to a better future.
