Importance of sharing prophetic words, warnings, dreams, visions, etc
Sep 7, 2019, 1:19 PM
Shalom brothers and sister in Christ.
This morning, Saturday, September 7, 2019, the Lord began speaking in my spirit about the importance of those in the Body of Christ to share the prophetic words, warnings, dreams, visions, etc that has been made known to them. The Lord stressed that it was vital that each person share these messages with and within their community of family and friends and with others that they interact with daily; even chance meetings and with strangers.
The Lord said, “Tell them not to worry about what or how to share with others, for the Holy Spirit will guide you and the Lord will give you His Peace. Tell them to pray that My Father will prepare the hearts and minds of those whom the Lord would have you share with. The Lord then said to tell them not be shy about it. Tell them I will pave the way and prepare the people to hear; though they may not seem to believe, yet the seed has been sown.” The Lord said to remember to base the message upon His Word for His Word is the foundation of all prophetic messages.
Then the Lord spoke to me about the significance and importance of prophecy and prophecying. First, the Lord does not do a thing, lest He tell His prophets, watchmen and messengers (Amos 3:7). Though He may act suddenly, it is not without prior warning or making known His intent. He impressed upon my spirit the importance of the prophetic messages; especially at this time (then He led me to 1 Corinthians 14 [I have included to versions). Then the Lord said, “Pray without ceasing; pray for guidance.”
***PLEASE NOTE my use of [[[around the scriptures 1 Corinthians 14:34-35]]]. I have parenthesized these scriptures deliberately because I desire that people not be offended by them; but see them as scripture; seek GOD on it if needed, but please do not let them become a stumbling block to yourself. I am a woman and I am speaking; as are many woman in the Body of Christ. I am a member of the Bride of Christ; the Lord therefore is my Husband.
AMOS 3:7 (NKJV)
“Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.”
2 CHRONICLES 29:36 (NKJV)
“Then Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced that God had prepared the people, since the events took place so suddenly.”
1CORINTHIANS 14 (NCV – New Century Version)
DESIRE SPIRITUAL GIFTS You should seek after love, and you should truly want to have the
spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. 2 I will explain why. Those who have the gift of speaking in different languages are not speaking to people; they are speaking to God. No one understands them; they are speaking secret things through the Spirit. 3 But those who prophesy are speaking to people to give them strength, encouragement, and
comfort. 4 The ones who speak in different languages are helping only themselves, but those who prophesy are helping the whole church. 5 I wish all of you had the gift of speaking in different kinds of languages, but
more, I wish you would prophesy. Those who prophesy are greater than those who can only speak in different languages—unless someone is there who can explain what is said so that the whole church can be helped. 6 Brothers and sisters, will it help you if I come to you speaking in different languages? No! It will help you only if I bring you a new truth or some new knowledge, or prophecy, or teaching. 7 It is the same as with lifeless things that make sounds—like a flute or a harp. If they do not make clear musical notes, you will not know what is being played. 8 And in a war, if the trumpet does not give a clear sound, who will prepare for battle? 9 It is the same with you. Unless you speak clearly with your tongue, no one can understand what you are saying. You will be talking into the air! 10 It may be true that there are all kinds of sounds in the world, and none is without meaning. 11 But unless I understand the meaning of what someone says to me, we will be like foreigners to each other. 12 It is the same with you. Since you want spiritual gifts very much, seek most of all to have the gifts that help the church grow stronger.
13 The one who has the gift of speaking in a different language should pray for the gift to interpret what is spoken. 14 If I pray in a different language, my spirit is praying, but my mind does nothing. 15 So what should I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my mind. I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my mind. 16 If
you praise God with your spirit, those persons there without understanding cannot say amen to your prayer of thanks, because they do not know what you are saying. 17 You may be thanking God in a good way, but the other
person is not helped. 18 I thank God that I speak in different kinds of languages more than all of you. 19 But in the church meetings I would rather speak five words I understand in order to teach others than thousands of words in a different language. 20 Brothers and sisters, do not think like children. In evil things be like babies, but in your thinking you should be like adults. 21 It is
written in the Scriptures:
“With people who use strange words and foreign languages I will speak to these people.
But even then they will not listen to me,” says the Lord. (Isaiah
22 So the gift of speaking in different kinds of languages is a sign for those who do not believe, not for those who do believe. And prophecy is for people who believe, not for those who do not believe. 23 Suppose the
whole church meets together and everyone speaks in different languages. If some people come in who do not understand or do not believe, they will say you are crazy. 24 But suppose everyone is prophesying and some people come in who do not believe or do not understand. If everyone is prophesying,
their sin will be shown to them, and they will be judged by all that they hear. 25 The secret things in their hearts will be made known. So they will bow down and worship God saying, “Truly, God is with you.”
MEETINGS SHOULD HELP THE CHURCH
26 So, brothers and sisters, what should you do? When you meet together, one person has a song, and another has a teaching. Another has a new truth from God. Another speaks in a different language, and another person
interprets that language. The purpose of all these things should be to help the church grow strong. 27 When you meet together, if anyone speaks in a different language, it should be only two, or not more than three, who speak. They should speak one after the other, and someone should interpret. 28 But if there is no interpreter, then those who speak in a
different language should be quiet in the church meeting. They should speak only to themselves and to God.
29 Only two or three prophets should speak, and the others should judge what they say. 30 If a message from God comes to another person who is sitting, the first speaker should stop. 31 You can all prophesy one after the other. In this way all the people can be taught and encouraged. 32 The spirits of prophets are under the control of the prophets themselves. 33 God is not a God of confusion but a God of peace.
[[[As is true in all the churches of God’s people, 34 women should keep quiet in the church meetings. They are not allowed to speak, but they must yield to this rule as the law says. 35 If they want to learn something,
they should ask their own husbands at home. It is shameful for a woman to speak in the church meeting.]]] 36 Did God’s teaching come from you? Or are you the only ones to whom it has come?
37 Those who think they are prophets or spiritual persons should understand that what I am writing to you is the Lord’s command. 38 Those who ignore this will be ignored by God.
39 So my brothers and sisters, you should truly want to prophesy. But do not stop people from using the gift of speaking in different kinds of languages. 40 But let everything be done in a right and orderly way.
1 CORINTHIANS 14 (KJV)
Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.
2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but
unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh
3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and
exhortation, and comfort.
4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that
prophesieth edifieth the church.
5 I would that ye all spake with tongues but rather that ye prophesied:
for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues,
except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.
6 Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I
profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by
knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?
7 And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except
they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped
8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to
9 So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be
understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into
10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of
them is without signification.
11 Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him
that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh shall be a barbarian unto
12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that
ye may excel to the edifying of the church.
13 Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may
14 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my
understanding is unfruitful.
15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the
understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the
16 Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth
the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he
understandeth not what thou sayest?
17 For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified.
18 I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:
19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding,
that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an
20 Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye
children, but in understanding be men.
21 In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will
I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me,
saith the Lord.
22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them
that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not,
but for them which believe.
23 If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all
speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or
unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?
24 But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one
unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all:
25 And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling
down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a
26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath
a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an
interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.
27 If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most
by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.
28 But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and
let him speak to himself, and to God.
29 Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
30 If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold
31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be
32 And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.
33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all
churches of the saints.
[[[34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted
unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also
saith the law.
35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home:
for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.]]]
36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?
37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him
acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of
38 But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.
39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with
40 Let all things be done decently and in order.
