Abundant Life Includes Prophecy

This week I’ll be speaking on the subject of new covenant prophecy. The Bible says in 1 Cor. 14:1 “Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.” Prophecy is a spiritual gift that builds up the local church. Prophecy is speaking forth the mind and counsel of God by declaring that which cannot be known by natural means. This is an awesome gift of God!!

To be able to speak forth God’s mind and counsel to a specific circumstance in someone’s life is powerful. The New Testament says more about this spiritual gift than any other listed in 1st Corinthians because the gift is designed for common use in the life of a Christian. To live a Christian life without prophecy is to live less than the abundance God desires for you. The Word says we should eagerly desire this gift. Why? Because it is vital to the life and liberty of the believer.
