What is a “Prophetic Perspective”?
What does “Perspective” mean?
A perspective is a viewpoint. The way someone perceives something as. It also means having an opinion.
What does “Prophetic” mean?
Prophetic means to receive a Revelation from God. It is the express will, heart and mind of The Father revealed in vocal or visual communication by His Spirit to humanity on earth.
A prophetic perspective therefore is God’s viewpoint and His Will made known to man as touching all things.
It is the discovery of the authentic mind of The Father regarding all things and it is the revelation of his true intent regarding the things we have been speculating about, assuming that our viewpoint was indeed what he intended for us to see.
It is the Revelation by His Spirit of what is ultimately true.
It is seeing from God’s point of view, which results in rich revelation – the unveiling of things previously unknown from the secret place of his heart.
Another definition would be that it is God gracefully coming to correct what we have been taught about Him, that has never been fully known or understood, or correctly communicated in a way that we could fully grasp the depth of his love and the beauty of his intent for us, that he has purposed and foreordained for us to walk in, before the foundations of the world were ever lain!
It simply means that God is going to blow your socks off when He shows you what you did not know, and reveals His true secrets to you regarding things you previously thought you understood!
You are in for a journey into the depths of The Father’s Heart and it is going to renew your mind, change your heart, and bring real, relevant and life transformational truth into your life.
“This message was kept secret for centuries and generations past, but now it has been revealed to god’s people…” Colossians 1:26.
“But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of god, which he destined for our glory before time began,”1 Corinthians 2:7.
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven,”Ecclesiastes 3:1.
Get Revelation First!
Be careful not to preach before you do not have the Revelation of what you are about to Preach!
Too many grab the first thing that sounds good and powerful and run off with it to preach it far and wide and high and low, on Facebook and on platforms – without having any experiential knowledge of what they are throwing around as “Soundbites” of wisdom.
Make sure God’s Word is deeply rooted and has completed his process in you, before you share with others, what you still have to come to know in experience yourself!
The Word is transformational. It’s not there to sound good or to serve us in looking good – its there to change lives – ours first and then others through us!
