The Gift Of Prophecy VS The Office Of The Prophet

Almost every time I teach on Prophecy, Prophets or Prophetic Gifting; I usually make this statement somewhere as a foundational truth: “Every Prophet will Prophesy, but not everyone who Prophesies is a Prophet!” I recently posted this statement on Facebook and got a slew of “Likes” and comments stating things like: “Too many do not understand the difference, and the difference is vast!” “If the Church taught it properly we would not have this confusion.” Getting this kind of feedback lets me know that there is, in spite of all the excellent teaching and books that are out there, still a tremendous amount of ignorance in the Body of Christ when it comes to this subject matter. First of all th

How Attitudes & Actions Affect The Prophetic

Quite often churches and groups of people get frustrated because they long to see a Prophetic Move of God in their midst but don’t see it. Sometimes we are told in Scripture as much what not to do as we are told what to do.

Not just my own but also those of other national and local Prophets that I respect or am in relationship with. This does a couple of things: It gives you a sense of what God is speaking all over as you compare prophetic words. I liken this to some of the principles of Hermeneutics. One Principle is called the complete mention principle – where you take all the Scriptures that deal with a particular subject as a whole to get the full implication of what the Bible says on that subject. Another Principle is called the comparative mention principle

The Whole Counsel Of God

We are living in a day when I dare say many a Preacher and many a Believer have no clue what the whole counsel of God is. The Apostle Paul was clear that in his ministry it was something that he preached. “For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.” Acts 20:27 NKJV “For I never shrank or kept back or fell short from declaring to you the whole purpose and plan and counsel of God.” Acts 20:27 Amplified Bible Before Paul stated the above he also said to those he was ministering to in Ephesus after spending three years with them and knowing that his physical assignment with them was concluded: “And indeed, now I know that you all, among whom I have gone preaching the king
