Do you want to hear God’s voice and prophesy but don’t know where to begin? If you desire greater intimacy with Jesus and encounters with Him you will learn a lot from my friend, Kathy DeGraw. I had the honor of having her on my podcast, ‘Adventures in the Spirit’ recently as we talked about the prophetic. And it was an honor for me to endorse her new book, “Prophetic Spiritual Warfare.”
During a two-year period she spent time in God’s presence. Then she started sharing details on how people can conquer and overcome spiritual warfare. I asked her how God led her into the prophetic and she said, “At first I ran from [my prophetic calling] it because I had seen it distorted so many times. But when I repented and embraced it, it really activated the prophetic and spiritual warfare to see breakthrough happen in less than five minutes.”
She continued saying, “I would see into the spiritual realm and pray into it. I started partnering with the Holy Spirit. I’d ask, ‘What do you want me to do from what I am seeing.’ Then He would tell you and you must be faithful and obedient to what He was leading.”
Face to Face with Jesus
When Kathy shared about a face to face encounter with Jesus I knew I had to ask for details. I understand that a face to face encounter with Jesus is life changing as I’d shared about my encounter before. I told her that I would love to hear her Jesus encounter.
She responded saying, “During a two year period I just sought Him, dialoguing with Him back and forth. I was prostrate on the floor seeing Him face to face. I’d had times where I felt like I was at the location of the cross. There were times where the anointing oil was supernaturally on my hands when I saw His face. I just wanted Jesus! I’d had a 45 minute encounter in Heaven with the Lord…it all came out of purity of wanting to know the greatest team of three we can know, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
Having a Warrior’s Heart
Kathy shared principles of having a warrior’s heart to move in the prophetic.
- Know who Father God is, having a heart of love. 1 John 4:8 – ‘But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.’
- Receive God’s love. 1st John 3:1 says, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.”
- Get into a position of inner healing and deliverance. Psalm 51:10 says, “Create in me a clean heart of God.”
Not only did she share these principles, but she gave insight on you can see in the Spirit and she activates you to prophesy! It was a power-packed episode with my friend Kathy.
