As I’ve been praying through how to follow my series on Prophetic Names, I’ve been drawn to another place where my heart finds its passion: the nations of the world.
Many of you who read this blog share this passion. The nations of the world are a mysterious, magical place. The canvas of this earth is covered with every shade of melanin and personality imaginable. The canvas is ripped in some places, taped together in others, some lines have been erased and redrawn more times than can be counted, and the piece itself is in a constant state of being colored and shaded into the masterpiece it was always intended to be.
I’ve done some research that I want to unpack with you all on how we should be prophesying over the nations and continents on this earth.
Psalms 2:8 has been an inspiring verse for me as of late. “Ask of me and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.”
If we’re to inherit the earth, the nations and people, the earth in all its beauty and splendor, my recommendation is that we examine what we have coming.
In my next several posts, I want to examine the prophetic names given to the continents on this planet. How did they get these labels? What do they mean? How do we interpret these meanings in light of our present-day reality
I believe in two fundamental truths:
1) This world is full of UNACCEPTABLE REALITIES and we as the body of Christ must accept this fact and the responsibility that comes with it.
2) This world is WORTH FIGHTING FOR and eventually INHERITING. God has always believed this and has promised it to us. He wants us to join in the stewardship of it because He intends for us to participate in the creation of that which we’ll one day inherit…just like he did with Adam in the garden.
Let’s look at the places that are close to our heart. I think you’ll like what we see.
