Prophetic Words Introduction
Over the years, God has given His people in Maine messages through ministers with the spiritual gift of prophecy. Many of the most recent prophetic words have been saved and collected for several purposes. One reason is to understand Maine’s prophetic destiny, in other words, His vision for our future.
God says in His word,
I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper You and not to harm you; to give you a future and a hope.
- Jeremiah 29:11
That Scripture was originally sent in a letter to the exiles in Babylon, to the whole Jewish community there. God gives prophetic words to whole communities and to nations. In our case, He has given words to the people of Maine for us to understand His plans for us as a state, a region of the United States. Another reason for prophetic words is to encourage His people in contending for the kingdom of God, fighting the good fight against evil, and for spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. Prophetic words give His people a united strategy for prayer and action. We all get on the same page, so to speak, having the same mind and heart. One more very important reason is this: when we pray authentic prophetic words to the Lord, we are sending His word back to Him.
He says in Scripture, that
“His word does not come back to Him void.” He always accomplishes that which His word was sent to do.
- Isaiah 55:11
God’s word always succeeds and prospers. His word never fails. We have the awesome privilege of being a part of God’s word succeeding and His accomplishment of His plans when we know and pray the Scripture and His true prophetic words.
