1 Timothy 4:14 Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you, which was bestowed on you through prophetic utterance with the laying on of hands by the presbytery.

1 Peter 4:10 - As each has received a gift, employ it for one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.

The Two Steps

We receive the gift (impartation), and we employ the gift (activation).

Judging a Prophetic Word

  • Is the word in agreement with scriptural principles?
  • Does the word contain the love of God?
  • Do the words bear witness with the Holy Spirit in you?
  • Have you heard it before? (confirmation)
  • Is it something that Christ would say or do?
  • Does your local church leadership agree?
  • Does the word cause confusion?
  • Do you have peace within your heart?

If you are unsure about a prophetic word, put it on the shelf and wait for confirmation. Be patient.

Personal desire can cloud the giving and receiving of prophetic words.

Obedience and timing are essential.

Have initial courage, and the Lord will give you continuing courage.

"Fear is a reaction. Courage is a decision." - Sir Winston Churchill

Record or write any prophetic word you receive.

1 Timothy 1:18 This command I entrust to you, Timothy, my son, in accordance with the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you fight the good fight,
