How do you define prophecy?
Prophecy is one aspect of the prophetic and is understood as an inspired communication from God. It is taking something out of the Spirit Realm with permission from God and speaking it into existence here on Earth. Doing this causes a shift to take place on Earth so that whatever has been spoken can come into fulfilment.
Much of prophecy is understood as knowing or seeing something revealed about the future, but that is not always true. Revealing things from the future plays an important part, but much of prophecy is what The Lord is doing on the Earth at the moment. This means understanding the times and seasons; although some would say that this is something very different. However, when we look at the words that are being prophesied today about what God is doing on the Earth, we then begin to see where we are on God’s timetable and the individual season we are in, and that helps bring the Kingdom into fullness.
Prophecy happens when the Holy Spirit moves within a person, and the anointing then stirs them to begin to walk in the utterance of prophecy. This takes place because the word of God is outside of time but when spoken is brought into time, which then brings about the shift. This is the cause and effect that draws one into the fullness of the word of God.
With all prophecy, there is some element of change that needs to happen and is why many feel uncomfortable with prophecy.
