The Holy Spirit speaks to us prophetically (foretelling) about our destiny, calling, building, but the Holy Spirit speaks to us instantly when we need prophetic encouragement, exhortation, or comfort. The Holy Spirit is always prophesying to us, but not instantly when it comes to destiny. Knowing prophetically what you are hearing is critical for the marathon we are running. If you hear words about your destiny, yes, they are extremely encouraging, but they have a time element attached to them, henceforth why we hear the Holy Spirit speak prophetically (instantly) with encouragment, comfort and exhortation.
With that said, we have been hearing a lot about “suddenlies” and if you have been waiting a long time, what does “suddenly” actually mean. Isaiah 48:3 helps us with this, “I declared the former things long ago And they went forth from My mouth, and I proclaimed them. Suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.” We are suddenly going to see what we have heard about our destiny long ago. We are about to experience a suddenly!
We may wonder, why does the Holy Spirit speak prophetically about our destiny, then release a suddenly? Isaiah 48:5 answers this for us, “I declared them to you long ago, Before they took place I proclaimed them to you, So that you would not say, ‘My idol has done them, And my graven image and my molten image have commanded them.” I know we do not worship idols, but we do think our great marketing, our gifting, our anointing, our whatever made this happen for us. God prophesies to us, so we never forget who did this for us.
Deuteronomy 8:18 “But you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” When you have the suddenly, don’t forget the prophesy, for everything you are about to experience and manifest was God’s idea long ago. Suddenly it is going to manifest, enjoy it, but don’t ever forget who spoke it, who did it, who is God!
