Demystifying The Prophetic

Mention the word ‘prophetic’ and what often comes to mind are the miracles that are performed – gold dust, manna from heaven, instantaneous weight-loss and visiting angels, just to name a few.  To skeptics, it’s probably all a bunch of hocus-pocus, or even worse, a scam orchestrated by ‘weirdos’ from the West.  But is that what the prophetic movement is all about?  Or is there more to it than meets the eye?

WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?

What is the prophetic all about?  On the most obvious level, the prophetic movement allows God’s people to experience supernatural demonstrations of His power.  These demonstrations could include anything from “soaking” or resting in God’s presence, to miraculous healings.  Others paint, sing or dance as directed by God to minister to others, and some receive visions and words of wisdom from Him.

SLICE OF HEAVEN OR MERE HYPE?

However, the basis of the prophetic really isn’t about signs and wonders, but about something much more fundamental than that – it’s about worship.

It is through worship that God’s glory is revealed. In other words, if we wanted to create a place where people would experience God’s awesome healing and miracles, what we would need is to worship God with everything that we have.

HEALING AND VISIONS I CAN UNDERSTAND, BUT PROPHETIC PAINTING AND DANCING TOO?

“Sing unto Him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise.” – Psalm 33:3

But worshipping God with everything that we have means we don’t put boundaries on our expressions of creativity.

Indeed, it is the arts that allow us to be at our most creative and expressive. And it is the power of the arts – through painting, dancing and releasing new songs – that radically transforms the emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives in a way that no other tool can.

Art, used in thoughtfully and prayerfully, can be used to enhance and deepen our worship.  The transforming power of the arts should not just be for the people of the church but should be practiced with the ultimate purpose of going out beyond the walls of the church, to touch the hears of people who do not yet know Him.

AND SO?

It is only with an intimate relationship with God that His power can manifest though us.

When Elijah was tasked to prove that God exists to a pagan-worshipping and disobedient generation, God sent down fire from heaven, and they fell on their faces in worship and repentance (1 Kings 18:39).  Perhaps that is what God is doing now.  In a me-first generation where people are their own gods and where cynicism abounds, God could be using tangible, awesome and unexpected ways to reach out to His people – believers and pre-believers alike.  Let the fire fall!
