Prophecy—Your War Strategy – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 13th

(Weaponise Prophecies In Your Fight Of Faith)

TO THE BIBLE: 1 Timothy 1:18 NIV
“Timothy, my son, I give you this instruction in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by following them you may fight the good fight.”

“Stella, I know you said we should prophesy whenever we pray, but I’m still not sure why. Is it really that important?” Rhoda inquired of her older sister.
“Yes, Rhoda, it is! When you prophesy, you’re wielding a powerful weapon in the realm of the spirit, and satan can’t withstand you!” was Stella’s reply.

I love the Passion Translation of the above verse: “…Use your prophecies as weapons….” This means weaponising the prophecies that have been spoken concerning you.

Use the prophetic word concerning your life, future, ministry, schoolwork, etc. as a weapon in prosecuting the good fight of faith.

Ephesians 6:17 sheds more light on this; it says, “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” The sword of the spirit refers to the spoken word, and the spoken word is the prophetic word. It’s an offensive weapon.

There’re two things here about prophecies: There’s the prophecy that’s spoken over your life as an individual, and there’s also the Word of God that’s already been written, which the Bible refers to as “…a more sure word of prophecy…” (2 Peter 1:19 KJV).

When you take that word that’s been written about you and utter it in faith, that’s prophecy; you’re speaking forth “Rhema” which the Bible describes as the sword of the Spirit in Ephesians 6:17.

For example, the Bible says, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). That’s the written word (Greek=Logos).

But when Satan comes out against you or you want to launch an offensive against him, you say, “Devil, I’m born of God, and I’ve overcome you because it’s written: Greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world.”

Instantly, you’ve weaponised that scripture! When you utter those words as “Rhema,” they become the Word of God in your mouth. And the Word of God in your mouth is God talking.

That’s what we do in prayer; we speak forth the “Rhema” of God in supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks in line with 1 Timothy 2:1.

Thank you, Father, for the power of your Word and for making salvation available to all men. Every soul is yours because they were purchased at a cost. I pray today that many people around the world will hear and receive the message of your love and saving power, that it will penetrate their hearts and impart righteousness to them, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
