LET THE SPIRIT OF PROPHECY COME FORTH

March 20, 2021

Last year August, I took a workshop titled “PROPHESY THE GOLD IN PEOPLE,” and the presenter Matt Sorger said something that made me rethink what I knew about the Spirit of Prophecy. Until that workshop, I viewed the Spirit of Prophecy as one of the spiritual gifts that God gave selected individuals. After taking this workshop, I believe I’ve been enlightened, and my understanding expanded.

In the Bible, Paul the Apostle wrote the most on the Spirit of Prophecy. First and foremost, he revealed spiritual gifts were given as a means of helping the entire church. In other words, spiritual gifts were not to be bestowed on solely one person but the masses. Additionally, in 1 Corinthians 14:3, he states, “But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.” To edify means to build up, to instruct or benefit, and to uplift. To exhort means to urge, advise, caution earnestly, admonish, and strongly encourage. Lastly, comfort means to soothe, console, reassure, bring cheer, and ease grief and stress

We all must admit in the times in which we are living with the numerous reports of people suffering from depression, suicidal ideations, economic issues, family breakups, health crisis, unemployment, addictions, and isolation; people need a word of encouragement, instructions, and a word of comfort. Think about that, as believers, isn’t that what we are called to do.

The good news is, it’s not hard to do if you follow these few suggestions: 

  1. Don’t look at people with your natural eyes but look at them through your spiritual lenses.
  2. Ask God to help you see individuals as He sees them. God looks beyond our faults and failures and sees our potentials. God wants us all to be successful as we follow his kingdom principles
  3. As you perceive who they are in the spirit, speak to their true identity and purpose. Meet them where they are at and bring them up and out.
  4. Offer encouragement, instructions, and consolation based on the Word. You will never go wrong when you speak the creative, saving, redeeming Word of God.
  5. Please don’t limit your prophecy (edification, exhortation, and comfort) to believers; speak to the lost they need to hear the Word the most.
  6. Finally, do as Paul advised, “Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy.” Don’t just long to do this. Do it, start today; someone needs to hear the Word.
