3 Steps to Claiming God's Promises & Sermon Below
Step 1: God created each one of us for His glory. Therefore, you can move from a place of desolation into prophetic fulfillment of His destiny for you.
Have you ever waited so long for a promise to manifest that you lost hope? The Bible clearly tells us that we don't live down here on Earth with our sights set only on what is temporal, but we are to have a view of eternity and operate from that perspective. Even in our greatest hour here on Earth, our best is still ahead.
God will give us grace to endure what is going on in our temporal world until we come into the fullness of our eternal destiny. But God has a wonderful plan for our temporal existence that will flow into our eternal communion with Him. The prophet Jeremiah wrote, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope" (Jer. 29:11, NKJV).
Step 2. God revives unfulfilled prophetic destiny.
Jeremiah had prophesied that Israel would go into captivity and serve the king of Babylon for 70 years. As Daniel received the prayer burden from God, he was able to understand this word that Jeremiah the prophet had spoken and know that it was now time for the power of desolation to be broken and restoration to begin.
Some of our grandparents and great-grandparents had incredible destinies that were never realized. We need to know how their prophetic inheritance became captive to the enemy. We also need to see how the generational blessings of God have not been fulfilled in our families.
Step 3: Declare Your Future
Throughout the Bible, we see examples of God's people making prophetic declarations into their situations in order to see His will come about. Such was the case in Ezekiel 36 and 37.
The Lord told Ezekiel that even though Israel (signified by the bones in Ezekiel 37) had been scattered, He was going to bring them back together. Then God gave Ezekiel an understanding of Israel's prophetic destiny that he was to declare into the earth. Ezekiel 37 contains four levels of prophetic declaration that can help us to understand the process of prophetic fulfillment. In each level, there comes a place where prophetic fulfillment can stall. Understanding how the process can stall will help us proceed into the next dimension of prophetic fulfillment.
