Good morning people who believe that God still speaks today
I feel saddened when I hear people say that the gifts of the Spirit are not for today.
Firstly, I know that wonderful people are missing out on being a part of what God wants to do on the earth.
These are days when people need an encounter with God. Spiritual gifts, including prophecy, are part of God’s way of getting people’s attention.
In a time when destiny is being destroyed and purpose is being pushed aside, we need prophetic people releasing God’s prophetic intention over people, revealing the Father’s heart for them.
It is absolutely true that the Bible is God’s infallible Word, and as such, it is our highest authority. No individual “prophetic word” that contradicts God’s written word is from God. And this is why knowing what God’s Word says is imperative for people giving and receiving prophetic words.
But, God does still speak to people and through people, for the good of people and for the glory of God. Of this I am convinced.
God spoke prophetically through people in the Old Testament. Jesus spoke prophetically when He walked the earth. The early apostles and disciples spoke prophetically after Jesus ascended.
And here is the Bible’s encouragement for every believer today:
1 Corinthians 14:1 NIV Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy.
