Prophecies | Part Eight | How Prophecy Comes | Part One.

We continue with our meditations in The Book of Daniel, as we continue to dig into verse 14 of Chapter 10. It reads,

"Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.”"
So, how does prophecy come? How do we hear from the Holy? An easy place to start is God's direct word on this. We see this in Numbers 12:6-8. It reads,

"Then He said, “Hear now My words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the Lord, make Myself known to him in a vision; I speak to him in a dream. Not so with My servant Moses; he is faithful in all My house. I speak with him face to face, even plainly, and not in dark sayings; and he sees the form of the Lord. Why then were you not afraid to speak against My servant Moses?”"

So, God speaks or makes His mind known in prophecies by speaking directly. We have examples of this both in the Old and New Testament. It can be a physical audible voice, or one heard only in one's spirit, an impression. An impression is one open to all believers, but a physical audible voice is rare, and ONLY occurs in special dispensations. "God does not use a hammer on everything."

The impression in our spirit is popularly known as the still small voice. In secular terms, it can also be known as intuition. These are the ways Words of Knowledge, Wisdom, and Prophecy come. [1 Corinthians 12:8] In a sense, all are words of prophecy. The demarcations just describe the specificity of the operation. They are all an infusion and or incursion of the invisible and supernatural into our everyday, visible, and natural way of living. 

Impressions and or intuitions are available to all. We can develop our spirit and or senses to mature this part of our being. [Hebrews 5:14] Guidance is available to all through this medium. Like little Samuel, we have to learn to discern what is being said. In addition, we need to judge what is being said to ascertain the source. The Spirit and the Word agree. God will NEVER tell us what is not in agreement with His Word.

The Saint.
