Writing is one of the most powerful forms of communication. To be able to translate one’s thoughts into written form in a manner that conveys emotion and perspective with clarity so that others understand is a singular talent. The beauty of writing is that it enables the writer to give outward expression to the deepest thoughts and passions of the heart. The human race communicates through many different dialects and languages. David the psalmist likens his writing to speech when he says in relation to the Father, “My tongue is the pen of a ready writer” (Ps. 45:1 NKJV). However, allowing the Father and His language to guide us calls for an ability that surpasses the natural order.
We have the Bible, which is a special book given to us by God that possesses and proclaims TRUTH—Jesus Christ. I believe that apart from a personal relationship with Christ, no one can make much sense out of the Bible. They find it boring or meaningless, and the powerful truths it contains remain hidden to them. It is different for the sons of God. As we begin to grow in God, we realize that we are joined together with Him. We are not just written about; we are ourselves also living “epistles.” The sad part is that there are many believers who don’t understand this.
When King Josiah heard the prophetic word over his life that was read to him, a passion awoke in him to bring his nation before the Father. His reformation was part of the quickening work of the Spirit of the Lord in him, bringing him to awareness of who he was and what he was destined to do. The Scriptures are filled with prophetic promises the Father has given to us. All the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are about Christ. But because they are about Christ, they speak also to a people who are in Christ—His sons.
Prophecy does not fail but will come to pass with the generation that gets a firm hold on the Word of the Lord. Searching out what the Father has said requires insight and illumination. When what He says becomes a revelation to us, it will also become an anchor for us. We become a generation that is unmoved by the natural sway of man’s beliefs. We will possess a cry within our hearts that inspires a cause to see that the name of the Father is established in truth, justice, and righteousness. When we are truly awakened by the Spirit, there will be no way that we can return to a life that does not produce His works.
