I recently saw on FACEBOOK a post about some one giving a defintion of a Prophet / Prophetess.
It was good. then the person began to say that they have the “gift”
of a Prophetess etc. (again all good).
BUT what got to me was this:
there is a very Distictive and CLEAR difference between someone
who walks in the Authority and carried the MANTLE of the Prophet
and some one who has a gift TO prophesy. Gifts can be “stirred up”
and you are not necessarily a Prophet… Case in point you can be
around Prophets and that inate gift will come up
Here is what 1 Cor 14:31 says in the God’s Word Translation:
All of you can take your turns speaking what God has revealed.
In that way, everyone will learn and be encouraged.
Okay that’s good right there…NOW… let’s take this further:
This is not contraversal what I am about to say but BIBLE:
If placed in the RIGHT settings and around the RIGHT People,
i.e. a company of Prophets
ANYONE can prophesy (if the Spirit of the Lord is upon them…
Don’t Beleive that..? Here is the Word of God to back it up:
1 Samuel 10:10
When they arrived at Gibeah, a procession of prophets met him (saul);
the Spirit of God came UOPN HIM IN POWER,
and HE JOINED in their prophesying.
SAUL WAS neither A PRIEST OR A PROPHET!
Need further truth..?
1 Samuel 19:23
But on the way to Naioth in Ramah the Spirit of God
came even upon Saul, and he, too,
began to prophesy all the way to Naioth!
I came from a Church where the Prelate is a MAJOR Prophet
who walks HEAVILY in the Spirit. It is very Much a Prophetic House…
however are all there Prophets? No,
Can all Prophesy? Of that I am sure given the correct circumstances.
I remember from the age of 8 being in a Prophetic house and under the tutelage of Apostles & Prophets…seeing the ACTUAL SIGNS WONDERS & MIRACLES that the Bible talks about!
What is the difference between one who has the GIFT of Prophecy
VS On who walks in the authority and MANTLE in the OFFICE of the Prophet?
I saw this while I was doing my research and it makes for very interesting
reading…so instead of me reinventing the wheel check out what I read.
here is the website:
So after Prayerful reading this (and have your BIBLE open and
prove everything by the WORD OF GOD!)
I hope that it will give you a clearer picture about this subject.
Oh, and I know that there will be some who will say but what about Acts 2:17 “…and your Sons and Daughters shall prophesy..” YES, it is ALL true nevertheless not all will walk in that OFFICE.
if you ever want a wonderful “job description of a Prophet” check out Jer.1:4-10 I won’t type it all out here, it is my prayer that you will pick up the WORD and read it for yourself.
*May the Lord add a BLESSING to the READING of HIS Word*
Many people are making a mistake in thinking that because they have a gift of Prophesy, that they are a Prophet.
Beloved, it has been my sole intention for us as a Body to have a clear understanding of this subject. Because in these days EVERYBODY wants to be a Prophet! With all the “Superstar” status & trappings that they see. So sorry, but the people have really been DUPED in that area.
I said all of that to say this:
Be sure & be clear when you say that you have a gift of Prophecy.
make sure that you have an understanding of what you are saying.
be careful, because you know NOT what you are calling unto yourself in the demonic Spirit Realm when you say I am a Prophet (or have a gift) of Prophesy!
I can feel by the Spirit of the Lord that this is only the beginning of a series of teachings on this subject. However, please note that I will ONLY write and publish about this topic ONLY as the Spirit of GOD allows me to do so.
And I have an unction from the Holy One that I will place this on the internet via different media opportunities as the Father opens the doors to do so. Keep us in your prayers as we go forward for as the scripture says in
John 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
Until the next time this is Prophetess Mary Thomas aka the Kingdom DIVA signing off! We remain:
