GOD HEALS DEAFNESS BY PROPHETIC ACTION
This lady came forward for prayer for her hearing. When Kevin starts praying for her, the unclean spirits within her starts to manifest as her hands shake almost uncontrollably.
In the spirit, Kevin saw corks stuck in her ears, stopping her from hearing. He pulled the corks out prophetically and her hands stop shaking. Kevin knew that the corks were out and so he then clicked his fingers to test her hearing. Almost immediately, she realises that she is now able to hear! Praise God! Glory to God!
What Kevin did, lead by the Holy Spirit, was to carry out a prophetic action. A prophetic action is a seemingly senseless but symbolic movement that brings forth an outcome that corresponds with the movement. Pulling out the corks in the spirit symbolically unplugged her ears, enabling her to hear in reality.
When Elisha told the King of Israel to shoot an arrow out of the window, the act of shooting the arrow served no actual purpose but it prophesied symbolically that the King of Israel would conquer Syria in Aphek (2 Kings 13:17).
When Jesus saw the man blind from birth, he made clay with his spit and pasted it on the man’s eyes (John 9:6). He then told the blind man to go wash his eyes. When he did, he was able to see! The water that washed the eyes did not contain any special powers, it was what the prophetic actions represented in the spiritual realm and manifested in reality that enabled his sight to be restored.
When Moses parted the red sea, he was told to lift up the rod that God gave him and make like he was dividing the sea with the rod (Exodus 14:16). This caused the sea to part. Imagine how silly and comical Moses must have looked waving a rod in the air to make a parting motion!
This is where God uses the foolish to confound the wise (1 Corinthians 1:27) and where child-like faith and humility comes in (Mark 10:15). Unless we are willing to be as children who believe easily, we will struggle to enter and experience the kingdom of God.
Jesus said ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent and believe the gospel’ (Mark 1:15)
