The Role of the Prophetic in the Church

THE ROLE OF THE PROPHETIC MINISTRY IN THE CHURCH – God speaks today using the voices of Godly men and women, choosing whom He wills to speak through. This is often referred to as Rhema words, meaning God’s Word in His Now Season. This can occur even through the means of preaching, teaching, or exhortation. However, it is recognized that prophecy is the usual means of speaking forth God’s mind and counsel for this moment of time. There are at least five channels of prophecy by which God speaks to His people today. They are: the office of the prophet, prophetic preaching, prophetic presbytery, the gift of prophecy, and the spirit of prophecy. Hearing from God, both individually as members and corporately as a church, through prophecy or any other Biblical means chosen by God to communicate, is essential to faith and walk with God. Prophecy is only one method of discerning God’s will and direction. It is recognized that none of the methods or channels or prophecy will always be 100 percent accurate and actions should not be taken on the basis of prophetic words alone without other confirmation. The prophetic presbytery serves the purpose in the Body of Christ in activating establishing, releasing, commissioning, and ordaining gifts to their office, function, and place of relationship and/or leadership ( 1Cor 14:3; Eph 4:11; Eph 2:20; 1Tim 4:14; Acts 13:1-3; Titus 1:5; Rom 12:6; 1Pet 4:10; 1Cor 14:39; 1Cor 14:1; 1Thes 5:19-21; 1Tim 5:22; 2Tim 1:6).
