The Gift of Prophecy

By Dr. Charles Stanley

Prophecy means much more than to foretell the future. It also means "to speak the truth" or "to proclaim." Very seldom does the Lord God reveal a future event to us. The motivational gift of prophecy is primarily concerned with speaking forth the truth. The Word of God helps us to understand characteristics and avoid misunderstandings associated with the gift of prophecy, and it shows us how we use that gift when we walk in the Spirit.

    Until now, I didn't realize that this is my spiritual gift. I had assumed that prophecy meant foretelling future events., so I didn't concentrate on this one when I took a class on the gifts at church. I am so happy I just decided to check out what Dr. Stanley had to say about each one. It certainly cleared up a lot of things for me about myself, as I come off too harsh and turn my friends and loved ones off. I too use Dr. Stanley"s tapes because I am not good in expressing myself, and when I try, I sound critical . I am going to try to be more knowledgeable about where to find certain scripture in the Bible , and better yet, to remember it! Thank you Dr. Stanley! Once again you have changed my life! God Bless you and your ministry.

    Thank you for the encouragement on Prophecy as that is one of my gifts. This been pointed out to me several times but I hadn't recognized this gift even as a Christian I just quoted scripture to point out truth-that is me in #7 wanting others to understand in #8 I been harsh and frank I believe I didn't know how else to come across so words just came forward-I try to maintain that humble spirit and God is my witness as I speak He is remarkable in discerning the heart so I ask speak with Your words because I get awkward-thanks for these uplifting pointers I only want to buiuld lives in the character of Jesus-Anita
