|THE GENUINE MATURED
|Mature prophets don’t
force their way, rather,
their words pave a way for God’s people.
Their word are not meant to oppress but to rescue.
A true mature prophet is
not an intruder oppressor,
but one who pulls people
out of their
deception way to the light
of Jesus Christ. He does
not just speak to impress
or confuse people, the
true mature prophet are
His servants. These are
genuine mature vessel
unto honor today, men
and women anointed
and sent by God for
rescue of their generation.

Sometimes judgmental but teachable. They

water from the throne of God.
|Middle in ministry and in view issues prophetically. Lacks balance,

“I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’
“How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart,
“who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, as their fathers forgot My name for Baal.
“The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream; And he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat?” says the LORD.
“Is not My word like a fire?” says the LORD, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?

LEARNING TO PROPHECY
All though often there is a tendency in our churches to criticize one who stumbles in some way while prophesying. But it is not easy to learn to speak prophetically in front of others. It takes much prayer and spiritual maturity to move with confidence in the prophetic realm. After all, it is no easy thing to speak forth in front of others, knowing that they will be judging your words. I know of no short cuts or easy methods in this learning process. The more we understand this difficulty, the more understanding and supportive we will be of those who prophesy.
Making the leaders to know how it’s not easily personality to prophesy as a man, than as Holy Spirit help and use us as His vessel to minister to His people. Let me use this illustration; usually I have a table in front of me, if I may ask you to use your imagination for a few minutes. Now, imagine that I have two men bringing a large plank into the room and lay it on the table. Then I tell you to imagine a small boy, six or seven years old, standing next to me. I reach into an imagination toolbox, get a saw and hand it to the boy. I tell him, “son, take this saw and cut this plank into two please!” then I leave the room. I gave him no instruction—not even as much as how to hold the saw!
“Now, how long is it going to take this child to cut the plank?”
“A very long time of cause!” I now have 27 years old man carpenter next to me. I give him the saw and say, “sir, please cut the plank into two pieces” and I leave the room. How long is it going to take him to cut the plank?” “Yes,” “very quickly!” Why was the 27 years old professional carpenter able to cut the plank easily or more quickly than the six years old boy? The answer is obvious. First, the carpenter was trained in the proper use of the saw and second, he had superior strength by virtue of the age, exercise and maturity.
If we don’t expect a small boy to be proficient with a saw, why should we expect a Christian to prophesy expertly the first time he or she prophesies? One must learn to use the gift of the Holy Spirit. Yes, the gifts are supernatural, but the learning to use them is a process which takes time and patience on every one’s part.
SEPARATING THE GIFT AND THE MINISTER
This is a carpenter with all his tools in the toolbox. He has a saw, a hammer, a wood plank, a level and so on. It is the matured craftsman who can best use the proper tools to accomplish the task at hand. The carpenter is the “minister” and the tools in his toolbox are the “gift” of the Holy Spirit.
God uses people who are called and prepared by the Spirit to accomplish His work on earth. They serve the church, the body of Christ. I believe that every believer has a ministry call for, Apostle Paul tells us, “now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” (1 cor. 12:27).
MINISTRIES IN THE BODY OF CHRIST
Apostles Prophets Pastors
Teachers Evangelists Miracle workers
Healers Administrators Those Gifted to Bring
Servers Encouragers Messages in Tongues
Leaders Showers of Mercy Givers
The above list was taken from 1 cor.12:28, Eph. 4:11 and Rom.12:6-8. I believe every member of the body of Christ has a ministry call of at least one of the above ministers.
For simplicity of illustration, I have divided the nine gift of the Holy Spirit into three categories in the toolbox illustrated above; they are the ministers “tools”
REVELATION GIFTS POWER GIFTS VERBALGIFTS
Word of knowledge Faith (Different) Kinds of Tongues
Word of wisdom Gifts of Healing The interpretation of Tongues
Discerning of Spirits working of Miracles Prophecy
Each minister has the tools in his toolbox that are necessary to perform his or her ministry purposed. To go back to our analogy of the carpenter, an auto mechanic has different tools in his toolbox than a carpenter. So also each of the ministers in the body of Christ will have different gifts of the Spirit in order to be able to fulfill his or her ministry.
THE “TOOLS” GIFTS OF THE PROPHET
The prophetic ministry is a public speaking ministry. Thus, the prophet often operates all the verbal gifts: different kinds of tongues, the interpretation of tongues, and the gift of prophecy. The prophet also operates the revelation gifts: the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge and the discerning of the spirits.
Furthermore, on a limited basis, some prophets will operate the power gifts: Faith, the gifts of healing and the working of miracles. The one who operates in the gift of prophecy, but is not a called prophesy, may also have another ministry call as well.
Once you come to understand the difficulties for those just learning to prophesy, you can be more patient and encouraging. As church leaders you can also be somewhat directive in your teaching and advice so as to help shorten the maturing process. After all, all of us are still, to some degree, learning to use the “tools”
