Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. I Corinthians 14:1
There are many self-proclaimed prophets in the world today, many of whom missed it on Trump winning the election! Now I know what you will say, he won but the election was stolen, maybe so, but the fact remains, he is not going to be in the White House for four more years!
Before you say, "Thus says the Lord!" You had better know without a doubt that God said it! Jesus warned that there would be many false prophets in the last days and so there are, so, does that mean we throw out the gift of prophecy? No, but we need to use the gift the way it was intended to be used!
I truly believe that prophecy should be practiced in the body within the assembly because it is the rudder of the gospel ship, without which the church would sail in circles and go off course! In other words God uses the prophets to speak to His body for direction, correction and edification! This is why there has to be other prophets to judge what is said and if it is not truth, correct it!
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
