Who is a Prophet

A PROPHET – One ordained by God and inspired by the Holy Spirit to speak or proclaim the heart of God to a people/nation/situation.

A Prophet does not just speak for God, a prophet speaks as God

A Prophet is one who brings clarity, direction and order to a person’s life or situation through words inspired by the Holy Spirit

A Prophet is one who empowers the church with the anointing of prophecy

A Prophet is one who is brave enough to capture the future and freeze it in time for the building of God’s purpose

A Prophet is one who reaches for heaven’s desire and brings it into the earth

A Prophet reveals that which is hidden (secrets)

A Prophet is one who is yielded to the Holy Spirit

A Prophet is one who testifies of the Christ

What will be the strategy for conquering?

The prophetic is more effective when God does the speaking and not when you go with a preconceived word

The prophetic is effective when you are working & walking with God and not just working for God

The prophetic is effective when you are intimate and have knowledge of the nature of God before you represent Him to a people – it is first for you

Disciplines of the Prophetic

  • Intimacy/Friendship with God

John 15:15

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you”

Friends of God listen to Him, know and share His burdens and partner with Him to fulfil His heart.

What are you sacrificing?

Friendship is sacrifice.

Let Him tell me of His own Heart.

A friend knows the business of God. As a friend of God He makes His business known to You.

Lord, what is in Your heart today? 

It’s friendship with God that make you drop your own to-do list for God’s list.

Faith and Righteousness qualifies you for friendship with God

James 2:23

“And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend.”

Exodus 33:11 

‘The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend.’

There is an anointing upon You and we must live by faith.

When I interact with God’s Word and His Light, I begin to sound like Him.

When You Spend Time with God, You will start sounding like Him.

You can be an embodiment of light that things about You begin to pour into your environment.

God wants to speak to us face to face.

Every time God wants to appear He must shake you, until you are able to carry.

Walking in Love

1 Corinthians 13:2

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

Love is the foundation of the Prophetic expression and functionality.

Love must also drive the prophetic.

You must be driven by Love.

You must be able to see people how God sees them and situations how God sees them.

When you are driven by love you can literally be a prophetic person.


Numbers 12:3 

Now Moses was a very humble man, more so than any man on the face of the earth

The humility of a prophet elevates the Prophet to the place of honour

God graces the humble. 

Where Love is the foundation for our prophetic expression, Humility is the pillar that makes the house stand

God also wants to produce humility through you.

The destiny of God for men is too heavy to put it in the hands of an immature man.

Walking in Purity

Matthew 5:8

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God

Purity gives you ascension access

Hebrews 12:14

Pursue peace with everyone, as well as holiness, without which no one will see the Lord”.

Seek to Know and Be Known by God

Matthew 7:22-23

On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness

John 10:27

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me

We must seek to not just know God and to know His heart but to be known by God.

The way to be known by God is to follow.

The voice of God is movement. The voice of God reverberate because it is like sound.

How must I posture myself, how must I position myself?

What is this voice breaking out of me and in me?

It requires movement and pursuit. Am I willing to follow?

Diligent in Seeking and Following His Voice

John 10:27

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me

-Where is it leading me to go?

-What is it leading me to do? 

-Who is it leading me to reach?

The Prophetic requires movement and pursuit

A true Prophetic Person is a diligent follower of Christ.
