Prophetic Destiny - About His Business | DVD

It is highly improbable to fulfill God’s purposes for our lives while ignorant of His prophetic word. We need an open heart and a willingness to believe, and Pastor Allen submits there are three significant perspectives - prophecy insulators – that can help us grasp prophecy and its importance: Time and Eternity – a hope in eternity shapes our decisions in time - God’s prophetic word opens our hearts to His eternal purposes; Life Objectives – our objective is not meant to be this world but another Kingdom and maintaining this perspective will inform our life-responses; Protecting Our Assets – more than good stewards of our assets in time, but investing in enduring wealth - our choices in time will influence our experience in eternity. We want to make life-choices that enable us to be invested in eternity – “to be about His business” – and we need the prophetic word of God to do that well. That said, there are two central focuses of prophetic Scripture: Jesus’ first arrival to mankind and His return. The Bible says that no one knows the day or the hour that Jesus will return, but that we can know the unique season. Scripture has given us a wealth of information toward recognizing the season we are in because God does not want His people to be taken caught off-guard. They are prophetic markers leading up to Jesus’ return to the earth – pervasive skepticism, preoccupation and unawareness, evil and ungodliness; the Jewish people’s acceptance of Messiah; the revelation of Antichrist and his false prophet; the rapture of the true Church and those who turn away from the faith. We live in a generation of privilege to see and hear God’s prophetic word to His people.
