About Prophecy

Broadly and simply, prophecy means “truth from God spoken through another person”. It is an invitation to a conversation with God about what’s on His heart for you.

In 1 Corinthians 14, we see that prophecy is for strengthening, encouragement, comfort and edification of the believer and to help the unbelievers encounter God. It might be about the future, but many times it isn’t. You may receive a “word of knowledge” which is information you already know but encourages your faith.

A prophetic word will not contradict what God is communicating in the Bible or be considered God’s word in the way the Bible is.  The Bible stands alone and is greater than any prophetic word and is properly used to judge them.
