Prophecy is a gift of the Holy Spirit according to 1 Corinthians 12:10. The Greek word prophēteuō means to “foretell, tell forth, prophesy.” A simple definition of prophecy is to hear and communicate the heart of God for a person.
The ability to hear God is a gift for all believers (see John 10:27 NLT). We believe the prophetic is a spiritual gift for all believers according to 1 Corinthians 14:31: For you can all prophesy one by one, that all may learn and all may be encouraged.
Additionally, the Bible strongly urges us to pursue the gift of prophesy. The prophetic ministry of the local church has the purpose outlined in 1 Corinthians 14:3–4 NLT, which is to strengthen, encourage and comfort others resulting in strengthening or edifying of the entire church.
At River of Life Church, we train and equip teams of believers to recognize and understand the voice of God. We then provide a safe, accountable environment to use this gift to build up others. The prophetic ministry is led and organized so to be in order and to ensure accountability. This is done so following the direction of 1 Corinthians 14:26–33.
Throughout the year, we offer prophetic ministry during Prophetic Saturday events. This ministry is first come, first serve and is sure to be a blessing to you!
