To another prophecy. I Corinthians 12:10
Normally prophecy is reserved for prophets and prophesying is in essence saying what God says or speaking out God's word! But according to scripture everyone can prophesy and Paul the apostle said, "Desire earnestly to prophesy."
There are many prophets in the world today, many of whom are false as Jesus warned, so beware and test all prophecy! The actual gifting of a prophet is listed in the five-fold ministry and is a valid position of authority to train and equip other prophets to use their gift appropriately in the body!
True prophetic ministry is very much needed in the church for direction, correction and conviction of the saints and like the rudder of a sailing ship it steers the body through the seas of adversity and guides her to safe harbors.
Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge. But if anything is revealed to another who sits by, let the first keep silent. For you can all prophesy one by one, that all may learn and all may be encouraged. And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. I Corinthians 14:29-33
