Prophecy God's Inspired Word
By Larry and Audrey Eddings
ExcerptThe gift of Prophecy is a manifestation of God's Holy Spirit. It is a message inspired by God, spoken by a person to edify the Church. The Hebrew word for "prophet", means one who is inspired by God. It is a person who "tells forth" the word of God.
The Prophetic office had an awesome aura around it for it laid a great responsibility upon the shoulder of the one called to it. Prophetic utterances were to be only those given by God, and carried grave consequences if they were not.
