INTRODUCTION Many Christian believers think that the prophetic is only for the Apostles, the Prophets, the Teachers, the Evangelists, the Pastors and some “special” anointed people; sadly, they are not able to think of themselves as being able to flow in this precious gift of the Holy Spirit. However the Bible teaches us differently:
1 CORINTHIANS 12:7-11 (NKJV) 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: 8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.
HOW CAN WE START THEN? We must desire to prophesy. We need to become thirsty and hungry for the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Ask Him to stir up in you a longing for the highest gifts.
IN OLD TESTAMENT TIMES Moses Desire was that every one be a prophet and that the Spirit of the Lord be upon them. Remember, at that time the Spirit was given only to Prophets, Kings and a few people.
NUMBERS 11:29 (NKJV) 29 Then Moses said to him, “Are you zealous for my sake? Oh, that all the LORD’s people were prophets and that the LORD would put His Spirit upon them!”
IN THE NEW TESTAMENT Paul as well encourages us to seek the spiritual gifts, but especially that we may prophesy. Because prophesying brings benefit to the person prophesying and to the person or persons to whom the prophecy goes. It benefits the whole church!
1 CORINTHIANS 14:1-5 (NKJV) 14 Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. 2 For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries. 3 But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. 4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. 5 I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied; for he who prophesies is greater than he who speaks with tongues, unless indeed he interprets, that the church may receive edification.
THE HOLY SPIRIT EMPOWERS YOU! Once the Holy Spirit is poured out in a person, This person can prophesy. Prophecy is one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
HOLY SPIRIT POURED OUT IN THE OT Following we have examples of the Holy Spirit being pour out on a person, as a consequence of that they prophesy. Numbers 11:27 (NKJV) And a young man ran and told Moses, and said, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.”
IN THE SCRIPTURES BELOW WE SEE THE PROPHETSAMUEL SPEAKING TO SAUL BEFORE THE SPIRITCOMING UPON HIM. 1 Samuel 10:5 (NKJV) After that you shall come to the hill of God where the Philistine garrison is. And it will happen, when you have come there to the city, that you will meet a group of prophets coming down from the high place with a stringed instrument, a tambourine, a flute, and a harp before them; and they will be prophesying.
HOLY SPIRIT POURED OUT IN THE OT1 Samuel 10:6 (NKJV) Then the Spirit of the LORD will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. Proximity to people with anointing will bring it upon you; god will see your desire and will grant you the precious anointing. Important as well is the fact that when the Spirit of the Lord comes upon you, you will be transformed into a new person!
FULFILLMENT OF GOD’S PROMISE. In the New Testament everyone could prophecy. Why? Because the Holy Spirit is poured out on every believer. The prophetic gift is inserted in us.
COMING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT Acts 2:1-4 (NKJV) 2 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
PETER’S SERMON Acts 2:14-19 (NKJV) 14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words. 15 For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. 16 But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
