Give the prophets a chance to talk a few, and let the other judge. On the off chance that anything be uncovered to another that sitteth by, let the main hold his tranquility. For ye may all prediction individually, that all may learn, and all might be helped. What’s more, the spirits of the prophets are dependent upon the prophets. For God isn’t the creator of perplexity, however of harmony, as in all houses of worship of the holy people. (1 Cor. 14:29-33)
The subject of prediction, forecasting, and prophets has grabbed the eye of numerous devotees today, so I figured I would set aside the effort to say something regarding this significant yet dubious territory.
It gives the idea that some reject the possibility of New Testament prophets in the congregation today. Some accept that since the canonization of the sacred texts the endowment of prescience just as the workplace of the prophet has stopped and they are never again required today.
By and by, I think there is an absence of crucial learning and comprehension in the Body of Christ with regards to the whole field of prescience, forecasting, and prophets.
Exacerbate the issue with the abuse and maltreatment of the endowments and reasons for living of some who speak to these things and you end up with disarray, deception, and doubt of anything prophetic in nature. Along these lines, let us start by characterizing what prescience is.
What Is Prophecy?
Prescience is basically blessed discourse. To prediction is to talk under the blessing and motivation of the Holy Spirit. Along these lines anybody moved by the Spirit of God can forecast. Having this comprehension at the top of the priority list, as I would see it:
There are three levels or circles in which one may forecast. They are:
1) The soul of prescience (Rev. 19:10)
2) The endowment of prescience (Rom. 12:6; 1 Cor. 12:10, 14:3,6)
3) The workplace of the prophet (Acts 11:27, 13:1; Eph. 4:11)
An individual who predictions may do as such from both of three levels or circles. Notwithstanding, each level or circle of prediction has an alternate reason or capacity and conveys with it an alternate measure (Gk. metron).
A measure is a circle of power and impact of service, and speaks to at times either a natural or authority (2 Cor. 10:13-16).
One who predictions may work prophetically in one, two, or every one of the three circles or levels of prescience relying upon their endowments and calling.
All prophets (and all who forecast) don’t have the equivalent prophetic measure. Some have a measure that just stretches out to a particular topographical or social setting, for example, to the nearby church, some to their city, some to a specific country, some to different countries of the world (2 Cor. 10:13-16).
A) The soul of Prophecy:
At whatever point an individual talks under the blessing while at the same time giving declaration about Jesus Christ they are talking by the soul of prediction (Rev. 19:10).
Because an individual has, can, or will prediction doesn’t mean the person is a prophet or has the endowment of prescience. It essentially implies they are talking under the blessing or motivation of God in a specific time and spot.
The word prophet is a general term applied to one who is known and perceived by the Body of Christ as one who forecasts, regardless of whether it is fore-telling or forward telling. In any case, Request a prophetic word this doesn’t liken to or suggest that one is called to the workplace of a prophet.
Regularly, forecasting (talking under the motivation and blessing of the Holy Spirit) happens in a setting where the speaker and additionally the listeners are not by any means mindful that the soul or endowment of prediction is in activity by any means.
All adherents may forecast by excellence of the soul of prediction, while some may forecast through the endowment of prescience and others from the workplace of the prophet. This can happen in any setting where the object is to impart Christ to each other (1 Cor. 14:31).
