Prophecy makes a way
Prophecy is so powerful! Are you operating in the gift of prophecy/words of knowledge?
Cornelius received just one word of knowledge from an angel regarding Simon (called Peter) and it completely made a way for the gospel to be preached and received.
God had also prepared Peter through a vision in advance to visit the gentiles and he also acted in obedience.
Because of the accuracy of these words, this large gathering of people (v.27), who heard Peter’s message, all experienced the Holy Spirit coming upon them (v.44).
Wow! What an incredible outpouring of the gift of the Holy Spirit (v.45). Not only that, they received water baptism too!(v.47-48).
But what if Cornelius and Peter had not obeyed?
God is looking for those who will obey His voice to prophecy and make a way for hearts to be opened by giving weight to the message.
Your prophetic word may just be the catalyst for the gospel to be received causing an outpouring of the Holy Spirit!
