What Prayer Does (Pt 5)

It Enforces Prophecies

Every word of prophecy is God’s plan unfolded through a human vessel.

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
2 Peter 1:19-21

So whatever God says to you through the Scriptures or through a human vessel (in prophecy) is His plan for you, and as far as He is concerned, it is settled. But what many Christians don’t understand is that most prophecies don’t get fulfilled without the application of certain kingdom forces.

This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
1 Timothy 1:18

You don’t watch prophecies, you war with them, until they come into reality. In fact, a prophecy may look like falsehood or mockery, if you don’t know what it takes to make it happen. There are oppositions that have set themselves to block your access into your promise land, so you must do something to make that prophecy a reality.

But to war with prophecies you go to God in prayers with the Word (or the prophecy), reminding Him of His commitment to perform what He has spoken. Then you turn to the enemy and declare what is written concerning you which forbids his activities around you.

It takes warring a good warfare to see prophecies fulfilled. God is faithful and He cannot deny Himself. He is committed to do anything He has said.

In Deuteronomy 2:24, God said to the children of Israel:

Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle.

God had given the children of Israel the land, but a devil somewhere is saying, “No, you can’t have it.” God’s instruction to them was, “Rise up! Don’t sit there expecting it to drop into your laps! Begin to possess what is yours. Contend with the opposition in battle, until you possess your possessions.” This tells you that you don’t wait for things to happen, you make them happen. The Bible says:

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
Matthew 11:12

Most people wait almost lifelong to see God’s Word fulfilled in their lives. They keep wondering, “Could that word be true?” Yes, it is true. You only need to war with it to bring it to pass.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Jeremiah 29:11

God has good thoughts and plans of a glorious future for us all, but He shows us how to bring them to pass:

Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:12-13

That means, “When you wait and you don’t see the things I told you of, come and ask Me of them in prayers.” It takes intercession and seeking the face of God to see the fulfilment of the great plans and visions He has told you about. God has set an expected end before you, but you must call upon Him and seek Him with all your heart, if you want to enjoy it.

Any Word of God or prophecy that you have received and believed will surely bring forth when you apply the relevant force of prayer to it. That Word is a seed (Lk. 8:11); but no matter how precious any seed may be, without rain it will die in the ground. What do you do to bring down the rain? You ask.

Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain; so the Lord shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.
Zechariah 10:1

When you ask in prayers, the rain will come and the word will bring forth fruit in your life. Maybe you have been going through some drought as far as fulfilment is concerned. You don’t wait for the rain to come, you pray it down!

You have sat down with that word for too long. You can’t keep on saying, “It will come to pass one day.” Rise up now and do what it takes to make it come to pass.

Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.
Isaiah 43:26

Yes there are prophets today…You will have to be the one to Locate them personally and follow them… They are chosen and elected into that office by God himself. Its not a title and you don’t grow into it because you are holy. A prophet might not have white beards as illustrated in bible stories… but they are still real. (Jer. 3:15). Thanks Caddy.
