PROPHETIC RECOVERY

TEXT: Judges 6:11
Every man on the face of the earth has a prophecy behind him. The best thing that can happen to someone is to discover the prophecy concerning himself. You cannot become what is said until you discover what is said. There is something spoken concerning you. It does not matter who does not like you or what has been spoken against you. What GOD has said about you will come to pass.
Prophecy is the power that controls the future. The Bible said that the angel prophesied to Gideon, “You are a mighty man of valour”. Gideon looked at himself and wondered how he could be so with his present poor and pathetic condition. There are a lot of people that get a prophetic word and after a while , when it doesn’t come to pass, they doubt the prophecy. Many of you have had that experience before. You wait for so long and nothing happens after a word has been spoken of you. THE REASON is because there is a principle or condition attached to it.

A prophecy without a condition is an incantation.
Prophecy is not divine if it is devoid of conditions.

Many of us quote the Bible that we shall be the head and not the tail- even at that, the Bible gave conditions….if thou shalt hearken diligently. (Deuteronomy 28:1-) Until you know what will make your prophecy come to pass, your prophecy may be hanging in the air. The reason is because prophecy cannot break principles. If you follow the principles of prophecy, it will work with ease for you. (Genesis 17:1-9)
At Gideon’s time, Israel was experiencing a recession period. They had all kinds of economic, political and financial challenge. Everything was hard, then the prophecy cane to Gideon. Unfortunately they did not enjoy the prophecy because there were principles that will make the prophecy come to pass.( Judges 6:25)
EXAMPLES

  1. God may say you will marry a very rich man yet you will end up marrying a very poor man.
  2. By His stripes you are healed and yet you struggle with staying healthy.
    3.You will have a car and yet you still trek.
  3. This will happen so so and so year. The year comes and passes without the fulfillment of the prophecy.
    People wait and watch for the fulfillment of the various prophecies of GOD without understanding how these prophecies are fulfilled. A prophecy does not happen unless certain conditions apply. A prophecy happens if certain conditions occur.
    ILLUSTRATIONS FROM SCRIPTURE
  4. In Genesis 15:13 GOD told Abraham that his descendants, the Israelites would be in captivity for 400 years. However, we find in Exodus 12: 40-41 that the Israelites exceeded that time by 30 years. They left their prophesied captivity 30 years later. This was not the will of God as revealed in Genesis 15:13.
  5. Luke 1:26-28
  6. 2 Kings 3:1-19 and 2 Kings 3:27
    In spite of the glorious prophecy given to the children of Israel by Elisha the prophet that they would have victory over Moab, we see that as soon as the king of Moab sacrificed his eldest son, there was great indignation against Israel. In other words, that prophecy did not come to pass.
  7. In Ezekiel 33:10-16, God reveals the conditions for a prophecy to be overturned even when the prophecy proceeded from the very mouth of GOD.
  8. Jonah 1:1-2 and Jonah 3:1-10 is a depiction of a prophecy not being fulfilled because certain conditions were fulfilled that altered the performance of that prophecy. The conditions are contained in Ezekiel 33:14 which says, ” Again, when I say to the wicked you shall surely die, if he turns from his sin and does what is lawful and right”.
    There is a condition and method for how GOD handles judgemental prophecies and whether they will be fulfilled or not. Not all judgements of GOD are carried out. There are always conditions even if it is not expressly stated . If a man or a nation repents , the judgements that GOD has proclaimed against them will not be carried out. This is an important revelation of how fair GOD is . In this same vein, we should know that if certain conditions are not met for our prophetic blessing, it will not come to pass. (Ezekiel 33:13)
    God sees things from an entirely different view. He sometimes deliberately holds back information so that we do not have all the facts in order to make us live by faith and depend on daily direction from the Holy Spirit rather than living according to our mental capabilities and trying to figure out things by our fleshly mind. That will land us in trouble but GOD’s direction will always be right and peaceful.
