Prophecy — When The Holy Spirit Testifies — 4 Comments

  1. This is true and indeed what I have been experiencing in my life. Every time a prophet would come and talk to me, the Spirit of the Lord comes first and the prophet would only be confirming what the Lord has already told me.

  2. Dear Brother I need to address your statement:

    New Testament prophecy is a means used by God to confirm what the Holy Spirit has already spoken into your own heart — not to inform you of what you know nothing about.
    The Greek for Prophet is Strong’s G4396 Prophetes (Pro>4253 + Fame>5346) means foreteller.
    Part of Thayer’s definition is:
    2. a foreteller, soothsayer, seer.
    II. In the N. T.
    1. one who, moved by the Spirit of God and hence, his organ or spokesman, solemnly declares to men what he has received by inspiration, especially future events, and in particular such as relate to the cause and kingdom of God and to human salvation.

    Also in 1Cor 14:

    1Co 14:31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.

    The Greek for Learn is G3129 Manthano. Part of Thayer’s definition is: μανθάνω; 2 aorist ἔμαθον; perfect participle μεμαθηκώς; the Sept. for לָמַד; (from Homer down); to learn, be apprised;
    a. universally: absolutely, to increase one’s knowledge, 1 Timothy 2:11;

    In order to learn and increase in knowledge one must be unlearned, unknowing, and ignorant.The common definition of Learn is to get knowledge.

    In His Love,
