24th July 2014, 2 pm, Thursday
The first session of the Prophetic Conference started at 2 pm with beautiful Praise and Worship at the Christ Church, Little India.
After praise and worship, Dr. Paul Dhinakaran gave an overview of the Prophetic Realm.
3 And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” 4 They are “the two olive trees” and the two lampstands, and “they stand before the Lord of the earth.”[a] 5 If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die. 6 They have power to shut up the heavens so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.
Revelation 19:10 The testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.
Prophetic Anointing brings boldness to prepare the world for the second coming of Christ.
Acts 4:13 When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus
The Disciples spoke with boldness. They were bearing the testimony of Jesus. That gave them the authority to witness.
The first phase of coming of Jesus was through prophecy. Before Jesus came, Ana prophesied. Similarly before the second coming of Jesus, God’s people will prophecy. When you prophecy, you will have Jesus. You need to pray also. You have to pray for the prophecy to come into being. Holy Spirit leads us to pray. We cannot pray ourselves but Holy Spirit prays.
John 14:26 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
You can bring Jesus into the hearts of man through the Holy Spirit. Jesus is not going to come back as a lamb, but as a righteous judge.
Genesis 5:24 Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.
2 Corinthians 3:18 And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate[a] the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
The prophetic realm is different from wisdom and knowledge. Jesus says, My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest.
Enoch’s spirit is the spirit of sanctification. You and Lord will be united as one. You will experience His love. There is no fear in love. God needs obedience. Touch no unclean thing. Obedience is greater than sacrifice. That’s the height of sanctification. Jesus obeyed His Father. The Holy Spirit transforms us into the image of Christ to obey. When we obey, we will receive the authority. That’s the power of obedience.
David was a man who obeyed God. Prophetic Anointing gives you the power to obey God. God needs obedience. When a person obeys God, that person will honor, respect, and obey His parents and Spouse too.
In the second session, sister Evangeline Paul shared the Word of God. She mentioned we are God’s vessel. How can we be used as God’s vessel?
John 15:16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
1 Corinthians 1:20 20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
He chooses lowly people, despised people, so that we cannot boast anything of ourselves. Paul boasts about his weakness.
Why does the Lord calls us? For us to be useful in His hand. We have to go through multitude of experiences that are meant for us to be useful to Him.
1 John 5:14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us
We need to say, Lord fill my heart with your thoughts. Let me not think thoughts of mine but give me your thoughts.
Jesus prayed everyday. He was very prayerful. God wants us to pray, bear fruit and obey.
John 11:41-42 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying.[a] And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. 42 And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.”
Whenever you are discouraged, lets be prayerful. Let’s have dependence on God. Jesus says, if you abide in me, you will bear much fruit. You can do nothing without me. The Lord has called us to be fruitful. A tree is known by its fruit.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
How can we have the fruit of Holy Spirit? These are produced by Holy Spirit. We grow only by faith given by Holy Spirit. The more we are used, the more we bear His fruit. People will come to know the fruit of the Holy Spirit through us. Let us allow the Holy Spirit to work in us.
After the session by sister Evangeline Paul, Dr Paul Dhinakaran shared about the second aspect of Prophetic Anointing. In the first phase, sanctification comes through obedience, which comes through praying and listening to the voice of God.
The other phase of Prophetic Anointing is prophecy to Nations, Kings, and People. If you see the life of Elijah, prophecy came to kings.
1 Kings 19:15-16
15 Then the Lord said to him: “Go, return on your way to the Wilderness of Damascus; and when you arrive, anoint Hazael as king over Syria. 16 Also you shall anoint Jehu the son of Nimshi as king over Israel. And Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel Meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place.
Genesis 41:38 And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom is the Spirit of God?
Haggai 2: 6 “For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; 7 and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations,[a] and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts. 8 ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts.
2 Chronicles 31:10 And Azariah the chief priest, from the house of Zadok, answered him and said, “Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had enough to eat and have plenty left, for the Lord has blessed His people; and what is left is this great abundance.”
Psalm 16:3 As for the saints who are on the earth, “They are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight.”
‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.
Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Acts 2:41 Then those who gladly[a] received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.
Zephaniah 3:9 “For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, That they all may call on the name of the Lord, To serve Him with one accord.
Ezekiel 37:12-14 12 Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. 13 Then you shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. 14 I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken it and performed it,” says the Lord.’”
Revelation 8:3-5 3 Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand. 5 Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake.
Hebrews 12:24 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel
Hebrews 7:25 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
Romans 8:34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.
Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord God does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
Daniel 9:23 At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision:
Revelation 12:10-11 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
Psalm 68:8 The earth shook; The heavens also dropped rain at the presence of God;
Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
The Prophecy will always point to Jesus. Pray for God’s plan. Do what God wants you to do. After the sermon, brother Paul Dhinakran, led the people into prayers. It was an awesome God anointed session. Praise God for a wonderful time.
