Walking in Prophetic Fulfillment

 

by Frederick Drummond, Sr.

All the promises of God in the Holy Scriptures have a big yes attached to them (2 Corinthians 1:20). They are there to add value to our lives. In a very real sense they are a prophetic glimpse of what God has made available to believers. And whether it is salvation or healing, deliverance or victory, success in life or the opportunity to rise above and beyond yourself, the Holy Scriptures have addressed the subject and offer every one of God’s children the opportunity to see them fulfilled in their lives—these are all promises made by God who cannot lie.

 

Some of them are unconditional, and some are not. We should all pay careful attention to their context so that we will know how to apply them to ourselves and get the maximum benefits out of them. In a very real sense they are prophetic—they speak to our future, God’s best for every one of us. The Bible isn’t just an inspiring book to read. It is also the sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17) that God wants His children to take up and use as a weapon to carve out their future in Jesus’ name. There is nothing passive about the promises. They are full of life, waiting for believers to act upon and receive their inheritance.

 

The story of Abraham lays out the basic formula that we need to apply to receive the promises: grace, faith, and the truth (promise). In Romans 4:16-5:5 you have a beautiful outline of how to walk in prophetic fulfillment and see them come to pass in your life.

 

* Mandate:

 

. . . it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all . . .

Romans 4:16

 

Key: “. . . of the faith of Abraham . . .” (his kind of faith)

 

* The promise is made sure by grace through faith.

God

. . . God, (1) who gives life to the dead (2) and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; (v. 17)

 

   

1

Man

who, contrary to hope, (1) in hope believed, so that (2) he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, . . . (v. 18)

 

   

2

And (1) not being weak in faith, (2) he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. (v. 19)

 

   

3

He did (1) not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but (2) was strengthened in faith, (3) giving glory to God,

(4) and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. (vv. 20,21)

   

4

. . . therefore (1) “it was accounted to him for righteousness.”

(2) Now it was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him,

(3) but also for us. . . . (vv. 22-24a)

   

5

Therefore, having been justified by faith, (1) we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,

through whom also (2) we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and (3) rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

And not only that, but (4) we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces (5) perseverance;

. . . (6) character; . . . (7) hope . . .

[that] does not disappoint, because (8) the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit . . . . (5:1-5)

Keywords: testimony / authority / words / love of the truth

Do your words come out just as another reasonable or interesting point of view, or are your words carried along by the authority of God? It doesn’t take a seminary education; it takes a relationship with Jesus based upon the love of the truth.
