I’m posting this to help the Body of Christ become Mature about what a Prophetic Word is today. There is a teaching circulating by some prophets that its not a real prophecy from the Father unless it contains a ‘Word of Knowledge” . In context we read in I Corinthians 14: 3 But the person who prophesies speaks to people for edification, encouragement, and consolation. Holman Christian Standard Bible. The Context of what Paul teaches is this:”Therefore if the whole church assembles together and all speak in tongues, and ungifted men or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are mad? 24But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an ungifted man enters, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all; 25the secrets of his heart are disclosed; and so he will fall on his face and worship God, declaring that God is certainly among you”.1 Corinthians 14:23-25 Notice ungifted and or a unbeliever. Are you an unbeliever? Are you ungifted? Would you put a condition on what, how, or when the Father speaks to you? I like what Prophets Russ and Kitty Walden say” He’s God and He can do anything He wants to ( or say) anytime He wants to and He does not have to check with anybody about it”. I have been blessed to receive many anointed, accurate words that do not contain a ” word of knowledge” at all. I have received them and war with them all the time. My prayer is that the Spirit of God will find people that will receive His Word without preconceived standards that do not measure up to men’s erroneous teachings based upon a fear of man, or a entertainment value word. ( I was first called out by a prophet from Idaho and told you are a prophetic confirmer, with a Gift of Knowledge that restores JOY). Prophet Dick Williams. Many Words of Knowledge are spoken concering healing. Amen Bring them on, because that’s what the Father does every day for His Children, He Heals us. So if the Father says to you from someone a accurate word that Edifies, Exhorts or Comforts you and it has a Word of Knowledge is mixed into it receive it with gratitude. If a W.O.K is not included in your prophecy, know that The Father is STILL speaking to you in Love from a vessel who stepped up with courage to release the Word of the Lord to you!
