The Origin Of Prophecy

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: 2 Peter 1:21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. O-bservation: The Apostle Peter made it very clear concerning “The Origin of Prophecy.” He said that humans didn’t make prophetic utterances up; rather, the words were given to them by God, and the Holy Spirit strengthened them to give them. A-pplication: Don’t make the mistake of thinking that humans aren’t involved in the gifts of the Spirit. The fact is, we are God’s vessels to deliver the gifts to...

A Unique Day Indeed

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!   S-cripture: Zechariah 14:7 It will be a unique day—a day known only to the Lord—with no distinction between day and night. When evening comes, there will be light. O-bservation: Many theologians believe this prophecy given is speaking of the initial going out of the gospel. Jesus came to earth.

Jesus, God’s Anointed One

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Habakkuk 3:13 You came out to deliver your people, to save your anointed one. You crushed the leader of the land of wickedness, you stripped him from head to foot. O-bservation: This prophecy by Habakkuk is looked upon by theologians as a prophecy of not just one occasion but for many occasions where God stepped in over the centuries of time to intervene on his peoples’ behalf. Judah was the object of his love, and over and over, his people failed him. But time and time again, God delivered his people to save his anointed...

Prophecy

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Isaiah 21:3 At this my body is racked with pain, pangs seize me, like those of a woman in labor; I am staggered by what I hear, I am bewildered by what I see. O-bservation: This prophecy was given by the great prophet Isaiah 200 years before the fall of Babylon. As you keep reading, he was literally in a state of shock as he witnessed King Belshazzar setting the tables in the giant ballroom for a raucous party in Babylon to end all parties. The actual event that Isaiah looked into the future lens...
