1 Thess. 5:20, Do not scoff at prophecies,
1 Tim. 1:18, Timothy, my son, here are my instructions for you, based on the prophetic words spoken about you earlier. May they help you fight well in the Lord’s battles.
PROPHECY IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!
What is it?
PROPHESY IS THE VERBAL CONVEYOR BELT OF JESUS SPEAKING TO THE CORPORATE BODY OR INDIVIDUAL.
Word of Knowledge, Word of Wisdom and the other gifts are expressed verbally through the prophetic and are to encourage, build, and strengthen.
THE THREE LEVELS OF PROPHECY.
1) Flower Prophecy – This is when a person speaking prophecy shares the heart of God with great encouragement. Nice and sweet. “The Lord wants you to know that He loves you and is thinking of you today.” Sharing a verse that the Lord impressed on your heart for someone.
2) Specific Group or Person – Personal prophecy or a word for a group or people is more directive. This level is usually a bit more detailed from the Lord so the person knows it is not a shotgun effect. How you have been feeling, thinking, experiencing, and including small details to show that He knows you personally.
3) Extreme Details – The gifts work together, so prophecy can encompass the Word of Knowledge, Wisdom, Discerning of Spirits, Gifts of Healing, Working of Miracles, and become energized by the Gift of Faith. Evangelist Ted Shuttlesworth flows very strongly in this level of prophecy. Under the direction of the Spirit, prophesy can tell you where you are sick in your body, where things are in your house, your address, where and what you have prayed.
- My wife and I were called out by a minister in a congregation of about 500 people. He told us in detail what we went through the last 5 years. He told us what we were talking about in private (almost word for word), and then he told us what we were going through at that moment, and that we would not be at that church much longer. He then gave details of what we would be doing for the next 5 years. Very detailed.
1 Cor. 14:1, Let love be your highest goal! But you should also desire the special abilities the Spirit gives–especially the ability to prophesy.
