The Prophetic Breaks Through

John the Baptist went through his own prison of doubt.  He sent two disciples to ask Jesus, "Are You the Coming One, or should we look for another?"  This was amazing, considering all that John had been through with Jesus.  John the Baptist and Jesus were cousins, and they grew up together,  John baptized Jesus, and proclaimed, "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world."  But John had become offended while waiting in the prison.  Jesus sent a message to him saying. "And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me."  Then Jesus spoke the prophetic word about who John was.  The prophetic word breaks through our prison and hardness of heart.  Jesus said about John, "What did you go out into the wilderness to see?  A reed shaken by the wind?  But what did you go out to see?  A man clothed in soft garments?  Indeed, those who wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.  But what did you go out to see?  A prophet?  Yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet.  For this is he of whom it is written..."  Jesus spoke the prophetic word over John.  Jesus spoke the word that was the destiny of God in John's life.  This word told who John was, why he came, and what his role in the kingdom was.  This confirmed to John and to all who heard exactly why John had come, and this word dispelled the doubts that were lingering about what was happening in John's life.  We need the prophetic word in our lives.  The prophetic word breaks through our doubts, and confirms to us that God is still with us, and that His destiny is being accomplished in our lives.  My wife had a dream of herself driving a big semi truck, plowing through snowbanks and obstacles.  I said to her, "That is the prophetic word that breaks through the obstacles in our hearts, and sets us on the path of destiny for our lives."  This is the Word of God that changes our lives and brings breakthrough.  We receive this word when we, like Mary, sit at His feet and hear His Word.  God will give you the prophetic word for your life as you wait on Him, and this word will change your life, and bring breakthrough for you into the destiny God has for your life.
