God’s Word is prophetic in nature. We are studying the book of Revelation and the entire book is a prophecy. Prophecy speaks about things to come. God prophecies to us to give us direction and guidance. It is the will of God for Christians to always be moving forward in God’s will, prophecy helps us continue to move forward. Believers are to seek the gift of prophecy so they can encourage, exhort, strengthen and comfort the church. Many times you can simply speak the promises of God’s Word over people and that is the purest and best way to encourage them because God’s promises are all prophetic.
