Spirit of Prophecy

Levels of the spirit of prophecy: 

Men do not accept their prophets and slay them, but they love their martyrs and worship those whom they have tortured to death, 

– Fyodor Dostoevsky

38 When Elisha returned to Gilgal, there was a famine in the land. As the company of prophets was sitting before him, he said to his servant, “Put the large pot on, and make some stew for the company of prophets.”

2 Kings 4:38 NRSV

The levels of the spirit of prophecy can be likened to a pool. The water gets deeper as they go further into the pool. The farthest and deepest end of the pool can be the prophetic level with the greatest intensity and accuracy.

Just because a person can prophesy, it does not mean he is called to be a prophet or to the Office of the Prophet.

Any divine communication, illumination, and divine inspiration is the work of the Holy Spirit. A prophetic spirit — and is therefore prophetic in nature. Let’s begin with the first level of prophecy.

Prayer in the Spirit 


By prayer in the Spirit, i.e. glossolalia or praying in tongues, you can find prophecy flowing more naturally (Acts 19:6).

By Prayer in the Spirit, the prophet also experiences edification or being personally built up (1 Cor. 14; Jude 1:20). You are filled so that you can also be a blessing to others.

Moreover, prayer in the spirit allows you to get involved in spiritual warfare (Eph. 6:18).  Through this practice of glossolalia, you can also give control of your tongue to the Holy Spirit (Jas. 3:2-5), thus facilitating prophecy.

The apostle Paul was able to thank God for being able to speak in tongues, even more than the Corinthians (1 Cor 14:18), so he evidently thought it a powerful exercise.

Through this practice of glossolalia, you can also give control of your tongue to the Holy Spirit (Jas. 3:2-5), thus facilitating prophecy.

Praying in the Spirit

Fasting in the Bible

Fasting in the Bible is that:

The Bible consistently records how in seasons of fasting and prayer, the Holy Spirit speaks (Acts 13:2).

Every effective prophetic ministry from experience has been established from people who fasted and prayed. By fasting, one’s spiritual discernment opens up more readily. Fasting has a powerful impact in the spiritual realm (Dan. 10; Mt. 4:1-2).

Most importantly by fasting, one’s spiritual discernment opens up more readily.

The Kingdom of God

The Kingdom of God

What is the Kingdom of God:

James tells us about the kingdom of God, the body without the spirit is dead, and so is faith without deeds (Jas. 2:26). When one is doing the works of the Father, this practice increases the deeds you do. Moreover, this also increases your faith to facilitate increased prophetic work.

There is, of course, a balance between doing good deeds and developing a relationship with the Lord. Your gift flows out of the grace of the Holy Spirit; so do your deeds. However, the scriptural pattern shows us that the more you are willing to be used for the Kingdom of God, the more your gifting will intensify.

What are the current good deeds that you have participated in as a fruit of your relationship with Jesus?

Keep praising God in the dry season

Keep praising God in the dry season, because soon the rain will come, and you will be filled anew.

Like any other season, dry seasons don’t last forever. Seasons will change. You need to keep the faith and keep trusting God in the dryness. Keep praising God in the dry season, because soon the rain will come, and you will be filled anew.

The Waiting Season

Waiting is not easy. Sometimes, facing a closed door is easier than waiting for an answer from God. If you’re in a season of waiting, you know that it is testing your patience and your faith. You may be waiting for a prophetic word to be fulfilled, but the situation is showing you the opposite. You may be waiting for a Word of Knowledge from God for a decision you need to make, and God seems silent.

Whether you’re waiting on your godly husband, waiting for circumstances to change, waiting on something to be completed or waiting on your purpose, waiting is challenging. Hold on to God’s promises and trust in God’s nature. You can get through this season. God has not forgotten you.

If you’re in a season of waiting, you know that it is testing your patience and your faith.

God is faithful and wise. He is planning something. In fact, in this season of waiting, He’s pruning you. God can be chiseling away what’s not needed for the next level. God is preparing you and making you ready for what is to come. So, let Him work. And however long it takes, go with His flow and grow, because Father knows what’s best (and whose best).

Since this season is still just a season, soon it will be over. A time will come when God will say, “It’s time.” Keep the faith. Do not doubt and wait with an expectant heart, just like King David when he cried out, “Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly” (Ps. 5:3). God is listening and knows exactly where you are. Just hold onto your faith.

The Dry Season

The Dry Season is no doubt a tough season. You have probably gone through different moments in your life that have been characterized by a lack — whether it be a lack of motivation, a lack of resources, or a lack of confidence. It’s a season where you feel lack.

For believers, it’s usually called a spiritual dryness or a dry season. We cannot bring ourselves to speak a prophetic word, much alone a word of encouragement.

For believers, it’s usually called spiritual dryness or a dry season. We cannot bring ourselves to speak a prophetic word, much alone a word of encouragement. We feel that we cannot minister to others because we ourselves need to be encouraged. It’s when God is quiet — or we feel we cannot hear His voice or sense His presence as we once did — that we feel emptiness. There are seasons when God seems very distant.

One of the keys to getting through this challenging season is realizing that you are in the dry season and press through it. Know that despite the experience of lack and the feeling of distance between you and God, you are destined for abundance and that Christ is still in you. As you recognize that you are in this season, you must draw closer to Him. Do not wither up. Continue reading His Word. Speak to God even though He is quiet.

Check your heart when you find yourself in a dry season.

God is still on the throne. According to Psalm 37:7,

“Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act.”

Check your heart when you find yourself in the dry season.

Pride in your own capabilities

Do you believe your ability to hear from God is infallible or fail-proof? Do you give perfect prophecies all the time? It is a mistake to believe we are infallible in our gift to hear from God. The Bible even teaches us to weigh prophecies (1 Cor. 14:29, 1 Thess. 5:19-21) because sometimes God’s prophets can err. Discernment does not happen overnight, but it’s something we mature in over time (Heb. 5:14).

When we’re in the process of learning and growing in our spiritual gifts and we see the insight we receive from God to be a definite and fixed Word from God, then we won’t be able to receive honest feedback. Others will perceive that we are closed to any other viewpoint. Pride is a sin and it is the downfall in any ministry.

Pride is a sin and it is the downfall in any ministry.

Dear Lord,

Thank You for this journey You have taken me on. I pray that I will seek Your Presence in this ministry and that I would always desire to know more of You.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

GROWING YOUR PROPHETIC GIFT

In every area of life, feedback from others is fundamentally needed to help us grow and develop our gifts and skills. There is a saying that goes, “Feedback is the breakfast of champions!” This is also true concerning our spiritual gifts of prophecy and discernment. At the end of the day, if we don’t know how to improve and sharpen our spiritual gifts — and the manner in which we use them — we will not reach our truest potential. It’s not that we are the source of these gifts, but it is that we’re the stewards of these gifts that we seek to grow them.

It’s not that we are the source of these gifts, but it is that we’re the stewards of these gifts that we seek to grow them.

Feedback is important because when we recognize and acknowledge our blind spots, we are able to address them. We can never identify our own blind spots. Moreover, we also learn from the wisdom of others who are already ahead of us on the journey. Our ability to communicate clearly to others what God has spoken to us is sharpened when we receive feedback from elder prophets. Moreover, Godly feedback provides confirmation of our prophetic insight, which benefits us and those to whom we are ministering.

Through feedback, we can assess the degree to which the ministry is helpful. You can also ensure that there is no gap — or misunderstanding — between what you have heard from God (regarding His heart and purposes for a person or for a situation), and what the person has actually received and understood through your prophetic word.

Ministry feedback can come from the following people:

  • A person you share a prophetic insight with;
  • A leader, pastor, or spiritual overseer in the situation you are ministering in;
  • A mentor or fellow team member.

What are the benefits of ministry feedback you’ve personally experienced and how did it help you grow?

Do you have fears or anxieties with regards to receiving feedback or constructive criticism from prophetic leaders, senior pastors, or fellow prophets? What are they?

THE PROPHETIC ANOINTING DISTINGUISHED

This anointing is a gift. It’s not something you deserve or qualify for. The part that requires effort is learning to identify and to practice it so that you can flow in it with accuracy and authenticity.

The first thing you must get clear with yourself is that you already have the prophetic anointing. If God has called you to the prophetic ministry, then you already have within your access the anointing to get the job done. Many people are confused as they hop from one conference to another to get the prophetic anointing when they already have it. They just need to be trained how to use it. This anointing is a gift.  It’s not something you deserve or qualify for. The part that requires effort is learning to identify and to practice it so that you can flow in it with accuracy and authenticity.

What Does Anointing Mean?

John said, “and let the one who believes in me drink. As the scripture has said, ‘Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water.’” Prophetic anointing is like a bubbling brook that brings peace, joy, and rest. It is not like a mighty waterfall that comes splashing, picking you up and tossing you around —although this is what we commonly expect it to be. The “waterfall” kind of anointing is an external anointing and it comes by the will of God alone. The prophetic anointing is something different. It originates from deep within you. If you would just stop for a moment, you’d recognize that you’ve been experiencing this for some time now. Maybe you’ve been comparing yourself to other ministers and feeling insecure. You need to recognize that the Holy Spirit’s work is already present within you.

The power of the blood of Jesus Christ in relation to the anointing of God

When you recognize the power of the blood of Jesus Christ in relation to the anointing of God, then you will not ask God again to anoint you. Instead, you will ask Him to increase your anointing. You will also ask Him for wisdom to use what is already in your spirit. As the Scripture above says, this very anointing will teach you what you need to do to fulfill your purpose. Thus, it’s safe to say that the anointing that Old Testament prophets received was different from that of New Testament prophets. Since we live in the New Testament prophecy church, we can be sure that we won’t lose our anointing.

Unlike the Old Testament prophets, when God calls and anoints you, He deposits the anointing inside your spirit.

Unlike the Old Testament prophets, when God calls and anoints you, He deposits the anointing inside your spirit. You carry it everywhere you go. It is not “your anointing,” but it means you have a power reserve in your spirit that the Holy Spirit can use as he pleases. Moreover, the Holy Spirit does not need to wait until you are “righteous” according to the flesh, but he just needs to wait until you are ready and willing to fulfill your purpose.

A righteous God can dwell in a sinful man

27 As for you, the anointing that you received from him abides in you, and so you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, abide in him. (1 John 2:27)

In the passage above, John tells us here that the anointing that they received did not leave! It did not “come upon” and then “leave” from them again and again. Instead of pushing through with their own pure will power, they had a Helper in their corner — the Holy Spirit. For the first time ever, a righteous God can dwell in a sinful man, because he was cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ, who takes away man’s sin.
