Prophetic Blessings... everyone wants to be blessed
The year is 2018 and everyone wants to be blessed. I do not know anyone who has vocally said, "I want to enter the New Year cursed, beat down, broke financially and emotionally bankrupt". But for far too many people around the world that is exactly what will happen. We must understand our confessions alone will not change things. Yes, confession is good for the soul but we also have our body and spirit to deal with. Confession is likened to cleaning the outside of a cup but the inside is not yet been touched. True prophetic blessings come from inside us outward,not the reverse. Matthew 15:1-20
Many people will seek Prophets for blessings but not just prophets. In 2018 many people will seek out any person who they believe has the ability to confer such blessings upon them. Sadly many will perform their rituals thus doing their duty to God. Their obligations to man will be the laying on of hands and the use of many words. They will prophesy and proclaim blessings all the while ignoring the true condition of the receiver.
There is quite a difference between being a receiver and a believer. On the outward appearances all looks the same but God judges the heart not our outward desire.
Prophetic blessings can be attained but they are conditional such as many other things in life. Prophetic blessings are free to proclaim. They are the very words of life from God imparted to mankind. But beloved please understand life cannot coexist where death rules and reigns. Only one is the truth. In the end only one can remain.
We cannot violate scripture and expect a blessing. The blessings of God come to those who obey Him not just follow Him. Following Christ around alone does not obligate Him to bless you as some have prophesied to you in the past. John 6:1-71 God will have mercy on you for a moment but it will not last.
In 2018 God desires to bless you. It is His highest honor to do so. He delights in blessing you in the midst of the storm, in front of your enemies and yes even in front of satan himself.
By this time you must be thinking, How do we get this blessing?
In order to receive the blessings of the prophetic you must believe in the one who is blessing you. Jesus said the same thing many times over to those who were His disciples and yet they missed it just as people have missed it in this day.
Beloved prophetic blessings come not from seeking prophetic blessings but seeking God who gives them. His servants the Prophets are ambassadors from heaven who stand in your midst. Do you recognize that although imperfect in form and speech His Prophets are trained by Him and sent by Him? It is God who issues these proclamations you seek but they rejected Him who God sent, His only Son Jesus. If they rejected the gift then they also reject the giver who sent the gift. They do not recognize Him who sends His prophets. So it is today. In this world, in this life.
Prophetic Blessings can be received when we honor Him, the one true God. Prophetic Blessings can be received when we embrace the ones He sent to be among you because they come from Him. To honor them is to honor Him. To dishonor them is to dishonor Him.
No person can dishonor a man or woman of God in any way shape or form and then expect another minister whom you like to bless you from Gods hand.
Would this not make you a thief, a robber, a liar? Would you now implicate a naive innocent minister to do what you could not do yourself and this is to take the prophetic blessings of God instead of receiving them. Beloved the heart and mind of an unbeliever cannot receive Prophetic Blessings they can only take them.
In 2018 God is not looking for people who are wishing but need to receive Prophetic Blessings from Him. In 2018 He has instructed us not to lay hands on any man suddenly nor prophesy just because we can. For many are the deceptions of man.
It is the desire of God and our desire to speak prophetically into your life but in doing so the soil of the heart must be right in order for the seeds of truth to be planted. Psalm 24:3-5; Psalm 101:1-8;
If God can discern the heart and its intention so can His prophets. Remember, we are sent from Him to speak for Him. Receive His Prophets, Receive their Reward... Romans 13:7;1 Samuel 2:12-36
A word of caution...In this next season starting in 2018 it would not be advisable to stand before a Prophet unless you're willing to have your heart read for what is really in there.
If you welcome a Prophet as one who speaks for God, you will receive the same reward a Prophet gets. And if you welcome good and godly people because of their godliness, you will be given a reward like theirs. And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded." Matthew 10:41-42
