2 WHAT THE PROPHETIC TEACHING COURSE IS ABOUT.

October 12, 2012 at 08:36 Leave a comment

We have New Age prophets, We have economists who predict the future. We have scenario planners. We have perhaps 100,000 people in Africa, dressed in white robes who claim to be prophets. We have preachers who preach prosperity, using the Bible and using the name of Jesus who preach greed and materialism that Jesus neither lived by, nor preached. Prophets and prophecy is a quagmire of confusion.This course will teach on prophecy, prophets and managing the future. 

How do we know which ones are fake? How do we know that all of these pseudo prophets are false prophets? Simply by knowing what true prophets taught and how the Old Testament prophetic ministry worked. Then how new Testament prophecy works, and why Jesus is the final prophet.

This course will start by giving you a thorough insight into Old testament prophets and new testament prophets.

I will reveal false prophets

Then it will show you How Jesus is the climax of prophecy

Then I will show you New testament prophecy

Then it will show you how to study the prophets

Finally I will show you that prophecy is highly relevant today and can be used for scenario planning and business management. Here is a summary of the course.

1. THE FOUNDATION OF OLD TESTAMENT PROPHECY- MOSES AND THE COVENANT

The ministry of Moses. Note that the laws of Moses have kept the Jewish nation alive for 3000 years, so his laws are proven. Jews are, and always have been, leaders in banking, arts, media, research, invention, business, so Moses is proven. I will go into these laws and explain why they are still working for us today. Yet Jesus said that John the Baptist was a better prophet than Moses- because he not only prophesied that Messiah would come, he actually said behold the man. John said this man over there, the one I have just baptised is Messiah. He is your sacrificial lamb and he is your king.  He is the only recognised prophet to say ‘there he is in the flesh’.He has come.

A. UNDERSTANDING THE PRESENT AND PREDICTING THE FUTURE

Moses was used by the prophets of the Old testament to understand the present by looking at the spiritual, moral, community harmony and secular aspects of the past. They then explained the present- why it was in a period of blessing or decline and disaster. Moses gave definition as what is truly spiritual, moral, community harmony and secular excellent.

Moses was used by the prophets of the Old Testament to predict the future. By looking at the spirituality, morality, community harmony and secular excellence of the present, the prophets clearly understood where that nation was heading, and they saw it simply and clearly.

B. THE LAW OF MOSES WAS THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE COVENANT WITH GOD

If the nation was obeying God by practicing their laws, they they were obeying the covenant that God made with Moses and Israel. God promised that if they obeyed his covenant, he would bless them[Deut 28, Jer 18]. So if Israel was obeying the covenant the prophets would predict blessing.

If on the other hand Israel was not obeying the covenant laws, they were breaking the covenant, and if they broke the covenant, curses [punishment] would rain down on Israel [Deut 28, jer 18]

C. OBEDIENCE/DISOBEDIENCE TO THE LAW BRINGS NATURAL NATION BUILDING OR DESTROYING 

To put this in practical terms, the laws were nation building laws. They were good for people, for families, for communities and for the nation. So if the nation was following them, the nation would naturally be built up. However, if they did not obey them, the nation would break down. It would self destruct.

So God gave moses laws that if they were obeyed, the nation would naturally build itself. Cause and effect. Sowing and reaping. Actions consequences.

On the other hand, if Israel was disobeying the laws of Moses that were the terms of the covenant God/Israel, then they would NOT be practicing nation building laws and the nation would self destruct.

D. GOD FEELS, GOD JUDGES, GOD BLESSES AND GOD PUNISHES

God sees and God feels. When God feels he acts according to his wisdom. he is judge and king. Judges and kings intervene to change the destiny of those they rule over. So does God. He is there. He is not a force or a distant being. He is there, ruling and judging right now as he has been doing throughout history.

So If Israel obeyed the laws of God, God would love it. He would be blessed.The nation would be doing good nation building laws. and therefore would be naturally strengthening. Yet God would also intervene personally in history. He would miraculously work his miracles to enforce blessing. We see that in the miraculous destruction of the army of Sennacherib in the period of the prophesying of Isaiah under king Hezekiah. Also in the liberation of Israel from the Greeks by the Maccabees just before the birth of Christ.

Now if Israel does not obey God, the nation is self destructing according to natural laws. God looks but he does not feel blessed. He is angry. As King and judge, he is going to act by punishing. He will intervene miraculously- but not to bless, but to punish. He will rain curses on Israel. Therefore Northern Israel was not supernaturally rescued. Nor was Judah at the invasion of Nebuchadnezzar. Nor was Judah at the destruction of the temple.

I will go into this deeper in this course.

2. ECSTATIC PROPHETS BALAAM, SAUL.

Balaam was lain in the spirit, yet he was a false prophet although he was called a prophet. Some people use this mode of ministry. Why is it weak? Why does it fail? Yet why is it so popular? Why does it feel good?

3. THE MEN OF GOD MODEL OF MINISTRY Elijah, Elisha. 

I will go into the ‘men of God’ of the Old testament. any modern pastors who claim to be prophets use this model as their model of ministry

4. PSALMIC PROPHETIC MINISTRY LIKE THAT OF DAVID, Asaph

After that I will start the next set of posts about How by following Jesus, and by having faith in him, we fulfill the law in legal terms and also progressively in actual obedience in daily life to the living God. How Jesus is the final prophet. How New Testament prophetic ministry works.
