I wanted to welcome the new year with a look at prophecy. I thought it might be appropriate since prophecy is about the future. The prophetic gift is one of the most controversial ministries in the church today. Kris Valloton is on staff at Bethel church in Redding, California. He has a great deal of experience in the prophetic ministry and has written several books on the subject including Basic Training for the Prophetic Ministry. In the first video below he discusses what the gift of prophecy is. In the second, he discusses common misunderstandings about it.
Anyone can heal the sick. But the prophetic gift gives us an edge. Through it, God communicates to the healer specific things that can be helpful. Through words of knowledge, we can be given the nature and history of an injury or illness before the patient says a word. Prophecy can reveal God's future plans for them. I hope you find these videos helpful.
