|Understanding The Prophetic by Missyajoke(f): 11:39pm On May 20, 2020|
Many Christians think prophecy only pertains to the telling of the future.But that's not what the Bible says: " But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification and exhortation, and comfort" (1 Cor. 14:3 ).The purpose of prophesy is to build up, encourage (exhort) and comfort the church and individual believers.If you think prophecy is just telling of futuristic events, you are missing it. The number one difficulty with personal prophecy is wrong interpretation of God's speaking. Many times the person delivering the prophecy tries to interpret it instead of just delivering it. Don't speak any more than what God gives you, and don't try to speculate after it is over. Some things are not be said publicly. Some things are to be said privately because they are nobody's else's business. Sometimes when you speak prophetically you don't know what you are talking about. You just know it is the Holy Spirit and people act like you know their whole life history. This is where people get soulishly addicted to the prophetic and to those who operate easily in this gift. If the prophecy you've you've received is not in line with the Character of God and the Scriptures don't heed it. So many people go beyond the Holy spirit. Some times a prophecy is short or lengthy. You can discern with your spiritual ears when a person goes into the realm of their own human spirit. There is that difference in the realm of the spirit too. You cannot always judge by the length of a tongue how long the interpretation will be. If you're a leader, you should develop your spirit and fine - tune your sensitivity to the point that you know what is going on in your church. At times gifts get out of Control
May God bless us all
