Prophecy is a gift of the Holy Spirit. Prophecy involves divinely inspired spoken words that edify, encourage, and comfort. It can declare what will happen in the future but does not necessarily have to. The priority in Prophecy is to communicate God’s words and God’s heart, as He reveals them to us.
The Bible encourages all believers to earnestly desire spiritual gifts, especially that they may prophecy (1 Corinthians 14:1). The Apostle Paul says be eager to prophecy and the one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them.
For those new to the Christian faith the thought that God could speak to humans through a dream, vision, thoughts, or a voice is a foreign concept. But Jesus said that His sheep (all believers) know His voice. It is God’s desire that every believer would have a relationship with Him. Through this relationship, God helps and directs us through life. Some people think it sounds weird that God would speak to people. We know God as a loving father and think it would be weird if He did not speak to us. The Bible is actually a whole book of God speaking to His people and is one of the most important ways He speaks to us. Throughout scripture we see countless examples of God speaking to His people and the ways that we can recognise His voice as believers.
Learn How To Prophesy
As stated earlier the Bible encourages all believers to eagerly desire the spiritual gifts especially the gift of prophecy. We encourage you to ask the Holy Spirit for the gift.
The Bible gives a warning about false prophecy, and it is important to take these warnings seriously. The goal of our prophecy is not to draw attention to ourselves, but rather to operate in obedience to God, that comes from a place of knowing God. The fact that the Bible warns us to avoid the false prophecy makes it clear that the Bible encourages the practice of true prophecy.
