An Introduction to Prophecy

Prophecy is the mind and counsel of God speaking through man. It is proclaiming by faith the mind and counsel of God where He uses mankind to express his thoughts. It is the declaration of that which cannot be known by natural means. It is the forth telling of the will of God, whether in reference to the past, the present or the future. It is the result of a cooperative effort, a joint venture between the Holy Spirit and mankind. Prophecy is speaking what God has spontaneously brought to mind. It is simply God communicating His thoughts to man.

A Prophet is one on whom the Spirit of God rests and is, therefore, a proclaimer of a divine message. The Greek Old Testament has it roeh, ‘a seer’, indicating that the person had immediate spiritual communication with God. This communication can be not only auditory but also by means of visions in dreams, or when wide awake as ‘open visions’. Another person may be aware of a similar thought from the Lord and thus confirm what is uttered and the word is then accepted according on the principle, “By the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established” (Deuteronomy 19:15) Therefore, a word spoken as from the Lord will find witness within the hearer’s spirit.

Prophetic Ministry

In Exodus 6:2 in the Torah and bible, YHWH states to Moses that He appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as El Shaddai (God Almighty) but did not reveal His Name YHWH to them. In addition, in Exodus 33:19, YHWH answered Moses' request by stating that He would make all His goodness pass before Moses and in doing so that He would call out His name YHWH.
