Prophetic Activations: When God speaks His truth in revelatory ways through songs, music, visual arts, simple objects, and dramatic presentations. Proverbs 16:22 encourages us to train up a child in the way they are “bent” they way He uniquely fashioned and created them to learn. Strengths, weaknesses, personality types, passions, interests, and learning modalities all play a part in how you are bent.
It is commonly taught that God speaks in four primary ways:
1. Hearing – words either written or heard in the mind, songs and melodies may be included (Auditory learners and verbal processors)
2. Visions/Seeing – pictures, images seen within the mind or expressed through drawing/artwork. (Visual learners, learn beat from word pictures and object lessons)
3. Feeling/Sensory discernment – Can be sensations experienced through the five senses or emotional feelings in the body. (Kinesthetic learners who learn best through hands on application)
4. Knowing – things untaught and unlearned that you could not know apart from God. (Intuitive learners who seem to instinctively arrive at answers quickly or deliberately)
God speaks to us the way we learn! We test what He is speaking in (Rhema, right now applicable revelation that is consistent with both God’s character & nature as well as the truth as revealed through Scripture.)
Holy Spirit is given to us to teach us, correct us, to guide us, to reprove us, to remind us of everything Jesus taught and reveal truth to us. What is Holy Spirit saying to you today?
God.Speaks.Creatively! How is he speaking to you through the images in this post?
“Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd. “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”
Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me. But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.””
