Prophetic people

Prophetic people shouldn’t make people more critical or fearful of the prophetic, or worse - pretend they are the only ones that God can speak to (or much worse - pretend they are prophetic when they are not); the key is to be not enamoured with a certain tradition or with what God has done in the past, but rather be in tune with what the Spirit is doing NOW.

They should EQUIP them to hear God for themselves more, while continually pointing to Jesus, to the bible and to redemption

1 Thess. 5:20-21
Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good.

1 Cor. 14:1
Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy. 

1 Cor. 14:39
…desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and in order.
