“If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what He reveals, they are most blessed!” (Proverbs 29:18 The Message).
God desires to communicate His heart, vision, and direction to His people. How? Through the anointing of His Word, and the gifts of His Holy Spirit – especially the gift of prophecy.
“Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy!”(1Cor 14:1 NASB)
Why is prophesy so important? Because, “The testimony of Jesus, is the spirit of prophesy” (Rev 19:10). And, it is Jesus who leads His church on the earth. He builds His church, through His presence in and through His people.
Prophesy is the gift of “eyes” to God’s people. Prophesy is vision and insight to the work of service God has called us to. Individually, and corporately.
ALL are to prophesy in order to edify, encourage and comfort God’s people. And bring forth God’s Kingdom here on the earth.
