The Prophetic Church

    A prophetic church brings the heart of the Father to the believer and unbeliever.

    The Prophetic Church

    14:1 Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. 2 For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries. 3 But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men.

    A prophetic atmosphere invites the manifest presence of God, worships freely and anticipates the moving of the Holy Spirit. Acts 13:2 One day as these men were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Dedicate Barnabas and Saul for the special work to which I have called them.

    Acts 2:17 In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. 18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

    Ephesians 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,

     Having our spiritual lens' changed due to the entrance of His word and the working of His Spirit. The clearer our lens the more we see God for who He truly is and the better we will understand who we are in Christ! It is a habit of mankind to impose their traditional, cultural lens to the scriptures, to fashion a god after their own image and likeness.
