TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – 10/23
“All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful: all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify.”– 1 Corinthians 10:23
God wants you to prosper in all things. However, He didn’t give you a right to prosper at the cost of others. God’s law is love. Love God with everything and love your neighbor as yourself. When you follow God’s law, you will find yourself in a place of prosperity serving others.
Declaration: I will love the Lord my God with all my heart, all my soul and all my mind. I will love my neighbor as myself so we can both spend eternity in heaven.
The promise is this: When we seek God, we will find Him. So, how do we seek Him? Where do we look? Glad you asked. You know I love calendars. I love timelines. The Bible is filled with them. I even believe it makes Father God happy to set dates and make appointments with us.
He wants to meet with you, as well. His word tells us that He set apart times for these appointments.
“And on the fourth day, God created the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and he placed them in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.” – Genesis 1:14
“Seasons” here means a prophetic appointment–a set time. Prophetic appointments are found in the Word. As a matter of fact, words “at the appointed time” are recorded 21 times in the New King James. That number is 3×7–fullness of time.
Many of these prophetic times and seasons are the Hebrew feasts. “But Pastor Troy, I’m not a Jew. Why should I keep their calendar and their feasts if I’m a bacon-loving Gentile?” Because they are not the Jew’s feasts; they are the Lord’s (Leviticus 23:4). Thankfully, our Jewish and Israeli friends have been the keepers and stewards of the biblical feasts throughout the centuries. I praise God for them because these are special appointments the Lord offers to all His children who seek Him.
Acknowledging God during these biblical feasts demonstrates you are His. You know His word and are eagerly expecting a divine appointment with Him on these Holy days.
At other times, I may hear the Lord call me into other appointments. He may say, “I want you to fast during this time. I want you to pray on this date. I want you to seek me on this certain day.” These appointments are personal times the Lord sets apart to reveal new secrets, hidden mysteries, or plans for my destiny in His Kingdom. I can tell you they rock my face off!
Like I always say, still and small is not just a description of the voice of God, it’s a description of the heart that can hear the voice of God. Many have been too big and too busy with worldly appointments to hear the voice of God calling them into an appointment–a prophetic time that can change everything.
God Almighty is inviting you to be part of this new thing He is doing on planet earth right now. Will you miss His timing because you were focused on something else? Set an appointment with the Lord. He’ll show up and show off.
