SEVENTH RIVER: BODY OF CHRIST
The seventh and last river in which the Spirit of prophecy flows is of course, the Body of Christ, the church of Jesus Christ. Being a member of the church of God allows you to flow in the prophetic. In the church, there are apostles and prophets who hold a special office and a more intense anointing in the prophetic realm. It is the Body of Christ, the believers, who can truly access the prophetic realm because the Spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus. The testimony of Jesus is the only reason why the church exists.
The body of Christ, if it moves corporately, can powerfully move into that seventh powerful river of the river of prophecy. The last two rivers were not available in the Old Testament. The seventh river is reserved for the family of God on earth, the church of Jesus Christ.
So if the whole church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and inquirers or unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are out of your mind?
But if an unbeliever or an inquirer comes in
while everyone is prophesying, they are convicted
of sin and are brought under judgment by all, as
the secrets of their hearts are laid bare. So they will
fall down and worship God, exclaiming, “God is
really among you!” (1 Corinthians 14:24-25)
The whole church can move into the river of prophecy. Paul was talking about the rivers of prophecy, flowing as a church, is corporately united together. All would be sensitive to God and to each other. When each member of the body is doing whatever God wants him or her to flow in the things of God, there can be such a strong prophetic element that when an unbelieving person comes, his heart is revealed, and he is convicted to give his life to Jesus.In the local church, there are usually prophetic presbyteries that allow this river of the body of Christ to flow. It is not about a single person’s ministry; it is about a corporate prophetic ministry (1 Tim. 4:14) that we want to establish in the church.
Experience the Power of Prophecy as a gift to open your mind to receive the Mind of Christ.
How can the church keep the prophetic river of the Body of Christ flowing?
