Prophecy is a word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord. It is God’s spoken word revealing His will, and carries His authority and power. Prophecy is infallible and cannot fail. In Scripture we’re urged to desire spiritual gifts, but especially that we may prophesy (1 Corinthians 14:1). This is because prophecy edifies, exhorts and comforts the church. When you find yourself in a dry spiritual state, you need a word from GOD – prophecy.

Do not scorn God’s prophets and prophecies, thereby restraining the Spirit. Test all spirits if they are from GOD or not, so don’t just believe any prophet or receive any prophecy. We need discerning of spirits. Paul exhorted Timothy not to neglect prophecy and to wage a good warfare according to the prophecies he received in line with his ministry and calling. Prophecy is that powerful, that holding on tight to it in faith we can fight and resist the devil successfully.

Love is the basis for the New Testament prophecy. If we prophesy not by love, it is all in vain and amounts to nothing. We prophesy in part, and we know in part – yet the Lord knows all things. If we’re careful to pay attention to the prophecies we receive, we’ll soon realize that they add up to a whole. Prophecy does not come by the will of man, but by the will of the Spirit. Like with all spiritual gifts, we must prophesy as and when prompted and carried along by the Holy Spirit.

Holy Spirit is the Spirit of prophecy. The prophets of GOD should have the same Spirit. A prophet hears from GOD in order to speak. Before there is a performance of miracles, there is first the word from the Lord. Prophecy brings miracles. Prophets must prophesy as they are commanded. If a prophet hears from GOD and prophesies faithfully, GOD will accomplish that word. If you are a faithful recipient of the word from GOD, GOD will bless you with more.
