SID: So Hakeem was late for work and he is rushing to get to work, and not thinking that much about God, but God speaks to him. What does he say?
HAKEEM: Yes. I was just on my way to work. My whole priority was really to just be on time. And so I was trying to get breakfast and I was going through my regular day, and the Lord interrupted my day. He said, “Son, do you want to know what Heaven declares over you today?” He wanted to give me a blueprint of my day, not just go casually, not be focused on just getting to work. But he wanted me to have a heavenly alignment to focus on what he desires for my day. And so when he said that to me, I’m like, “Well Lord, you surely picked a fine time to talk and so you’re going to make me late.” So he interrupted my time. But it was so important because now he wanted me to understand that I can command my day, that I can begin to cause things to shift and to change by what I speak. There is a right now word that God wants to release. There is a word in us that he wants us to release and understand. And so he said, “Do you want to know what Heaven has declared over you?” Heaven has already declared some things already, but we have to align, Sid, with the Word of God and bring Heaven to Earth, and we can bring it to Earth by what we speak prophetically. That is the power of the spoken word. God has given us purpose. He’s given us understanding and destiny, but he allows us to discover it once we discover it what his blueprint is.
SID: What is happening in the invisible world when you speak God’s Word? You talk about it being hovering over us. Explain.
HAKEEM: Right. Even as the Word, even as God’s spirit hovered over the deep in Genesis, Chapter 1, the deep of the waters, and so his Spirit, to me, by revelation is he’s hovering over us. Even the Bible says in Jeremiah that, “He watches over his Word to see that it is performed.” There is words that are hovering over people. There is prophetic destinies that are hovering over people. There are promises of the Lord in Heaven that are hovering over people. And so God had likened it as his Word hovering over us. He watches over it just like an eagle or a mother hen that broods over her eggs and see it hatched, see it come to pass, see it to come to manifestation. That’s what God’s Word does. He hovers over. He watches over his Word and he protects us. Our prophecy protects us. Our promise and our destiny, even mantles protect us.
SID: Hakeem, pray for the activation of the gifts of prophecy, etc.
HAKEEM: Father, we just thank you right now. You have given us this biblical truth, this biblical principle. Father, it’s not just for the prophets. But Father, you desire for the prophetic senses, our senses to be open. Father, right now, even those who are watching, I just open their spiritual senses. I prophesy and I declare that their senses that have been locked, those gifts that have been dormant, those things that have kept them bound, I unlock it right now by the Spirit of God. I prophesy to those gifts and those senses that are there. Father, it is not just for the prophet, but you’re raising up a prophetic generation. You’re raising up a prophetic people. Father, these are the days where you’re pouring out your Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy. I release right now, let there be such prophetic will that will be activated in your people. Let their eyes be open. Let their ears be open. Let their taste be open. Let their sight be open. Let their sense of touch be open. You have given us natural senses. Father, I release right now that their spiritual senses will be open. I activate it. I unlock it right now. Those who are listening, you will feel the presence of God. His Spirit is coming upon you, the Spirit of prophecy is coming upon you right now in a new way. Just receive it. It is your inheritance. It is the desire of the Father to give you the Kingdom. And so this is the hour that you will begin to tap into a dimension that you have never known before. Get ready, for your spiritual senses have been open. You’re going to prophesy. You’re going to speak for God because you were born to speak for him.
SID: Prophecy is the doorway to the supernatural. Signs and wonders are God’s method of reaching those that don’t know the Messiah. It’s so easy. I was eating with Hakeem last night and he reads the waitress’ mail, tells her things. She starts crying right in the restaurant, telling her about the trauma she just went through, telling her she’s moving to another state. I mean, very specific things. And then I just said a simple prayer of salvation with her. It was easy. Prophecy makes the Kingdom of God demonstrate it. Easy. You were born to prophesy.
