However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. John 16:13
One of the Holy Spirit’s major responsibility is to speak to us about the future.
You wouldn’t know that by hearing many Sunday and mid-week sermon topics. Why? Well, you can’t teach what you don’t know. It’s quite sad because when you know the future, you can better prepare for it.
Imagine walking in such an anointing that the element of surprise is no longer a factor for you.
You can live in a new state of spiritual preparedness that is always one step ahead of the enemy.
The prophetic gives you awareness of something before it occurs.
The Spirit of Truth comes to equip you with what was true, is true and will be true. Yes, this is a prophetic edge that no true disciple of the Lord should live without.
Ask God to reveal the future to you. We don’t need crystal balls and tarot cards. We have the Holy Spirit.
There are more books about speaking in tongues than books of how the Holy Spirit speaks. This creates spiritual deafness.
Decisions in finance, family issues or business endeavours go better when you have the inside scoop of what’s going to happen next.
I remember my husband I spent months and saw dozens of houses for sale. It wasn’t until one night that I dreamt I was in a church and someone gave me a cellphone digital chip shaped like a moving truck. When I put the chip in my phone I saw two huge moving trucks driving really fast.
When I woke up I instinctively knew the house we were ready to see that day would be our home. We looked at three homes in the same neighbourhood and the third house is the one we choose. On our second visit to the house to get a better look, our broker found mail on top of the fireplace mantle for the previous tenants with the last name Lugo. Look at God.
The Spirit of Truth spoke to me about “things to come.” Prophecy spoke to me about where I should be. What if I had not listened or understood the dream? What if my neighbours were difficult and troublesome? What if the house had hidden problems? The prophetic kept me out of the dark.
We have the nicest, most generous, helpful and humble neighbours anyone can want. And, no major problems with the house.
I call my neighbours friends and we love each other like family. I could go on and on but God pointed to this house specifically and I thank God that we were obedient.
The life of the Spirit is not bound by time. You should know the future. Everything? No, just the needful and the Holy Spirit will communicate to you accordingly.
Do you need “advance knowledge”? We all do.
If you ask and keep on asking, the Lord will reveal it.
His sheep know his voice. John 10:27
Incline your ears and ready your heart for “the voice” that wants to speak of things to come.
