I want us to talk about seeing into the future. I managed to share some inspired words with you on Day 8 that I had written in 2018. Many of which we have since seen manifesting. It is what happens when the spirit of God touches our imagination. I believe every Christian can do it. It is very easy to perceive from such experiences how the bible came into being. God inspired men to write it by His spirit. In fact, 2 Timothy 3:16 says “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”
As the church it was the spirit that gave us the book, it was not the book that gave us the spirit. That is why I said, we should not let the letters (vocabulary, theological customs, etc.) prevent us from fully catching on to what the spirit of the Lord is saying to us in this season. God wants His church, now more than ever, to be able to hear Him, even regarding the future.
Prophecy is not about the prediction of future events, it is about understanding and sharing the mind of God regarding a particular situation. It can be a past, present, or future event. God can share His mind to us about the past so that we understand what to do in the present and how to walk into the future that He has destined for us. He can share His mind regarding the present, in order to assist us in navigating the terrain of the now. And He may share His mind with us regarding the future in order to impart hope in us.
The body is limited in that it can only operate in the now, the spirit, and the soul, on the other hand, have the ability to travel back and forth through time. In God’s original plan however, the body was not constrained by time. And in God’s appointed time we will assume our immortal bodies again, but for the time being, you are able to access all the dimensions of time through your spirit and soul, although they would not be able to comprehend the time they are in without the assistance of the body.
If I asked you what you ate yesterday, who you were with, and where you got the food from, you will be able to travel back in time and begin to see what you saw yesterday and give me those details. This is because your spirit and soul have no time limitations. On Day 9 of this series, I want you to do an exercise with me. I want you to use your imagination and travel into the Month of December 2020. What do you see there? Do you like what you see and does it give you peace? How will your Christmas Day look like? What will you be doing on the 31st of December 2020?
If you are happy with where you are in December 2020 in that vision, I want you to try and live your present moment from that pleasant future. You should be able to lead from there, pray from there, and praise God from that future full of hope! If you cannot see anything or you do not like what you are seeing, then we need to do further exercise.
Why is your future looking so sombre and dreadful? Are you reading, listening to, and watching bad news and sad prophecies from doctors, economists, and business scientists the whole day? If you can only imagine doom and gloom you need to change the prophet you are currently listening to. You cannot expect News Reports and Market analysts to be prophets over your life! Time is not one dimensional. Listen to what a wise man says about the duality of time in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
During this period in South Africa, where Covid19 infections are reaching their peak. A lot of people are losing their loved ones, companies are closing down, and dreams are being shattered. It is very understandable why someone might look at time in one dimension. Focusing on the time to weep, time to mourn, time to tear down, and a time for war. But that is not all there is to time. There is also another dimension of time. Where it is time to laugh, dance, gather stones, mend broken things, and enjoy the peace of God. I want you to project yourself into this dimension of time and live from there!
I want you to go back to my Facebook status for Day 9 and share with us what the Lord is showing you about your December 2020. You should start by being the prophet of your own life. The bible says “For as he thinketh in his heart [soul], so is he.”Proverbs 23:7. Think godly! My December 2020 will be full of great testimonies about the goodness of God! I will have a reason to dance, despite what is happening globally. I will be healthy and serving God freely! Begin to declare and see into the future!
