Stirring Up the Prophetic Within You

People often ask me how to step into the prophetic. Here are some things I have learned:
Any true child of God that is baptized in the Holy Spirit can prophesy. Consider the following:
• “Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy” (1 Corinthians 14:1).
• “For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all May be exhorted” (1 Corinthians 14:31).
• “And it shall be in the last days,” God says, “That I will pour forth of my Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my bondslaves, both men and women, I will in those days pour forth of My Spirit and they shall prophesy” (Acts 2:17-18).
“For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands” 2 timothy 1:6 NAS
Here are some practical steps you can take to stir up the Gift of God within you:
1. Edification: Study what the Word of God says about prophets and the prophetic. Pray in the Spirit often! Build up your faith! Fan into flame the gift of God within you! See 2 Timothy 1:6.
2. Impartation: The most common way to receive spiritual gifts is by having someone who is already gifted lay hands on you and pray for an impartation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
• “For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established” (Romans 1:11).
• “And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied” (Acts 19:6).
• “Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership” (1 Tim 4:14).
3. Association: Seek out and begin to associate with proven prophetic people. You will find that the anointing of God in them will “rub off” on you!
“Then Saul sent messengers to take David. And when they saw the group of prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as leader over them, the Spirit of God came upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied. And when Saul was told, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise” (1 Samuel 19:20-21).
