The Gift of Prophecy: Part One

January 11, 2022

Excerpt from "The Holy Spirit and His Gifts Study Course" by Kenneth E. Hagin:

"Prophecy is supernatural utterance in a known tongue. The Hebrew meaning of the phrase, “to prophesy” is to flow forth. It also carries with it the thought: to bubble forth like a fountain, to let drop, to lift up, to tumble forth, and to spring forth.

"The Greek word that is translated “prophesy” means to speak for another. So “prophesy” can mean to speak for God or to be His spokesman...

"In First Corinthians 14:1 we read, 'Follow after charity [love], and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may PROPHESY.'

"We are told to desire spiritual gifts, but especially that we might prophesy. That doesn’t mean we are not to desire the other gifts, but we are to especially desire to prophesy.

"Again, at the end of First Corinthians chapter 14, Paul repeated, “Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy . . .

"Paul was writing by the inspiration of God. We could say it this way: God through Paul spoke to the Church at Corinth (and it applies to the Church everywhere) to desire spiritual gifts..."

Thank You, Father, for You written word for out of it flows the words that lead us to life and peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. I want to learn more about what You consider to be more important for us while living on this side of Heaven. Thank You for our daily bread. In Jesus's name, Amen.

Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
