In the Kingdom of God, His Word reigns supreme. Isn’t it then of utmost importance that we position ourselves in unbroken communion to hear what He is saying and then record it? Throughout history scribes were always present when kings spoke to their subjects and so particularly in the Old Testament, so let us ask ourselves how much attention we pay when our King is communicating to us.
So often we receive a prophetic Word, or downloads from heaven when revelation is poured out to us through the Holy Spirit or when reading the Scriptures, which bring great joy in God’s presence. If, however, we do not take heed to what we hear by recording and meditating on the Word or revelation received (even in dreams and visions), and then walk it out, we will lose what we hear. (Mark 4:23 “If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.”)
Then He said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear. By your own standard of measurement [that is, to the extent that you study spiritual truth and apply godly wisdom] it will be measured to you [and you will be given even greater ability to respond]—and more will be given to you besides. (Mark 4:24 Amp.)
23 If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.”“Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more. 25 Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.” (Mark 4:23-24 KJV)
In order not to break the flow of revelation when the Lord communicates with me during intimate worship, or when receiving a Prophetic Word, dream or vision, I have come to use the recorder on my phone. This is of great help not to lose anything He communicates; then afterwards to listen to the recording again to meditate on it and absorb it in my spirit. The next step is to transcribe it and put it in a journal, while still meditating on it, asking the Holy Spirit to give us the light of understanding and lead us to relevant scriptures. Studying out the Word with the help of commentaries and a Concordance while praying in the Holy Ghost brings increase in our understanding with the wisdom to apply truth.
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”
These are four great promises, which need meditation in themselves and an expectancy to walk in the fulfillment of it as we take time to meditate on God’s Word day and night, tapping into the river of life and bringing forth fruit accordingly. Prosperity in all things will follow, since the Word will cause our souls to prosper, having our mind, emotions and will submitted to and saturated in the Word. (3 John v.2)
On top of this the Prophetic river will flow unhindered through us, bringing grace to the hearer and shifting people, cities, regions and even countries into their destiny.
Ps. 138:2 “I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.”
