We all know that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ prophesied. He prophesied of His death and resurrection, of wars and rumors of wars, of famines and of other world-changing events. However, few notice that Jesus also ministered in personal prophecy, giving individuals words of knowledge, wisdom, and prophecy.
Jesus Gave Personal Prophesies
Word of the Week
Then he (Peter) began to curse and swear, saying, “I do not know the Man!” Immediately a rooster crowed. And Peter remembered the word of Jesus who had said to him, “Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” So he went out and wept bitterly.
The all too familiar prophecy Jesus gave Peter solidifies the fact that Jesus did give personal prophecies. As we study the Holy Scriptures, we discover there are many times personal prophecy was administered, Nathanael under the fig tree (ref. John 1:48-51), the Thief on the Cross at Calvary (ref. Luke 23:39-43), the Woman at the well (ref. John 4:5-26), the scriptural list continues.
It is very clear that giving a prophetic word in this day and time is of the Bible. Apostle Paul goes as far as to say that out of all the spiritual gifts we should seek the gift of prophecy.
Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.
I still find it amazing that after all these years of ministering in personal prophecy, rejection from the church is still an obstacle of the prophetic message. In fact, the reason I preach this message is because I was told that prophesying to people was not in the Bible. I thank God for this erroneous statement being made. It helps me to be stronger and more determined to see that everyone receives the gift of prophecy.
Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies.
Comments and Testimonies
For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. ~ Rev. 19:10b
Prophecy is the testimony that Jesus is not dead but Alive and Speaking to you and I.
Hi Bro Kent,
I wanted to write and thank you for the prophecy you sent to me back on 31st March. I thought you would also appreciate some feedback as well. In one part you spoke of travelling, going various places. Many years ago I received similar words about speaking to nations and reaching far in many places. You said you are one who likes to dabble in different things. I sometimes jokingly say to my friends that I have served in every church department except the Ladies meetings. I have also been involved in community and political things as well over the years.
You also said you wonder how can it be that I could be in such a situation that I can be taken care of by simply doing the things I love. At the end of last year I found myself in 3 part time jobs, all things that I had dreamed of doing or had an interest in over the years. I can’t support my family from these jobs (my wife works full time and her job pays well) but again I was saying to my friends who would have thought I would end up doing the things I have often thought about? And who would have thought it would work out the way that it did?
So thank you again, I appreciate your time and input.
