Prophetic Perspective is the most important perspective to have. It allows those who understand both the times and seasons to see what others either cannot see or perhaps even refuse to see. It also makes sure that the context is based on a prophetic promise rooted in the Word of God.
Regardless of what we as humans see in the natural unfolding upon the world, the real issues cannot be observed with mere eyesight or reasoned with intellect alone, it has to be discerned in the Spirit so as to extract the real issues surrounding events taking place moment by moment within the world, in our nation and even in our lives.
To begin with, before we can exercise prophetic perspective on the things taking place around us, we must ascertain what is taking place within ourselves. Failure to do so makes it impossible to do so otherwise. In fact it is because we can clearly see what is happening in our own lives that we are able to then see what is happening in the lives of those around us. Failure to do so, can only project a perspective that is as flawed as our own on a personal level.
It is here that I want to clearly establish that unless God reveals truth -- there will be no prophetic perspective. God reveals truth to those who walk in truth. Those who walk in truth are those who have submitted to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom. Truth is not to be confused with philosophical discussions or opinionated view points. Nor is it subject to “my” interpretation of how “I see it.” Truth is either absolute or it is not truth.
Gravity is either gravity or it is not.Up is either up or its not. Why is that we can justify our version of the truth by saying, “that's how I see it,” but not use the same argument countering gravity and up? Because we do not believe, like gravity, if we jump we can break some bones or even loose a life. However, if one observes foolish rationale regarding peoples opinion long enough, you will see some broken lives and even lost of lives for attempting to personalize the truth to fit their own preferences and hold on to their pride.
The prevailing reason why our nation and the world has become severely divided is because there is a rise of nations preparing for conflict as foretold in the Bible. There will be events that take place between nations and even nature that prophetically warned God's people of these activities to precede the end of the age.
Matthew 24:7 (King James Version) reads: “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.”
