Spiritual Gift of Prophecy
“To another the working of miracles; to another discerning of spirits; to another diverse kind of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues.” (1 Corinthians 12:10)
Prophecy is prediction, or something that is foretold that is still to come. When someone is given a prophecy, it usually begins with a word of knowledge, or when “God reads your mail”. And maybe even a word of wisdom, where God is giving someone direction and help in accomplishing their destiny. The purpose of this is to get your attention that the minister is hearing from God.
But a true word of prophecy takes time to come to pass. It may make no sense to you when you receive that word, but that is because many things need to happen before it can manifest in your life. Allow God to bring it about, and you will see that the prediction, or prophecy, really did come from Him.
