PROPHECY: What Exactly Is This Gift?

Released January 12, 2021 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


2020 was, for many, the year where an ugly spotlight fell on prophetic ministry. So many voices in the Charismatic Church boldly declared that Donald Trump would win the election and have another four years in the Oval Office. Obviously, that did not come to pass. Because of this, and also many other less notable prophetic words that never come to pass, many are asking if there is validity to the gift of prophecy, the answer remains YES! Yet, we believe that there is a great need for reformation to prophetic ministry in the Church. In our next focus in our current series on The Gifts of the Holy Spirit, we open up a discussion about the gift of prophecy. In this episode, Jeff begins to explain three essential components of how the gift of prophecy is exercised: Revelation, Interpretation & Application. He also addresses the failure of the Church to prioritize the gift of prophecy as he removes the idea that prophecy is no longer a valid gift. In fact, Jeff shows why prophecy is seen in Scripture as the most important gift. For those new to this gift, and for those who are comfortable in prophetic environments, there is much we need to learn in order to ensure that we honor Christ as we pursue and use this vital gift of the Spirit.
