Derek Prince – Bible teacher
Ruth and I, when I’m ministering, we always begin this way. God has taught us this, and we’ve discovered that proclaiming the word just in faith at the beginning of a meeting makes a tremendous difference to the atmosphere in the meeting, and to the anointing on the speaker.
THE TREMENDOUS POWER OF PROCLAMATION
We’re going to proclaim Isaiah 55:10-11, which is one of our favorite proclamations. We use it frequently in connection with our radio ministry and its outreach through the earth.
So here we are: ‘For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater. So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.’ Amen.
Now let me say a little bit about the word ‘proclamation’ or the verb ‘to proclaim’. It comes actually from a Latin word, which means to ‘shout forth’. It’s a strong word.
There are two related words in the language of the New Testament: ‘confession’, or ‘to confess’, and ‘proclamation’, or ‘to proclaim’.
