This week I’m speaking on the subject of new covenant prophecy. Prophecy is a gift given by the Holy Spirit. 1 Cor. 14:3 says that "he who prophesies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort."

I recently spoke a word of prophecy to a new person in our local church. God gave me a word of encouragement for her with specific information about which I had no natural knowledge. This person was greatly affected. Her faith increased. She was encouraged, strengthened and desired more in her relationship with Jesus as a result. It’s spiritual but it’s not mystical. We are used by the Holy Spirit to speak into someone’s life in a way that only God Himself can. We get to be the mouthpiece. What a deal! It is powerful and wonderful.
