Prophetic Giftings

1 Corinthians 12:8-10  for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,  to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. (NKJV)

Below is a list of the gifts that are associated with the prophetic ministry.  When the Lord blesses us with gifts, remember it’s for the edifying of His Bride, His Church, and not for own edification.

We are vessels used for God to send out His word into the earth.

Vocal gifts– gifts of speaking in tongues, gift of prophecy and the gift of interpretation.  These three gifts are manifested through the person vocally.

Tongues: The word says that we can speak in divers tongues, or different prayer languages.  Many do not believe in this gift, but for me it is part and parcel of who I am, and for many others as well.

Prophecy:  Speaking Gods word into the earth and into peoples’  lives.  Prophecy is meant to edify and encourage the believer, to draw them closer to the Lord.  Prophecy gives the believer faith and hope to go on.

Interpretation of Tongues: I have been in  meetings where a word will go out in tongues, and the interpretation follows in the native language.  This is another gift which the prophet operates in, interpretation of tongues.

Gifts of Revelation- word of knowledge, word of wisdom and discerning of spirits.

The word of Knowledge:  I remember years back, a person was coming to preach at the church.  The flyer said, “so and so flows in the word of knowledge.”  I asked what that meant, and no one could give me an answer.  The word of knowledge deals with the present or past situation in your life.

The word of wisdom- This has to do with a future orientation.  It tells you what to do in the future, it does not relate to the past at all.

Discerning of spirits:  This gift relates specifically to spirits, which means you have the ability to detect the presence or existence of spirits.  It has nothing to do with the Lord showing you the other person’s sin, that is the gift of the word of knowledge.

Power Gifts-gift of faith, healings and miracles.

Gift of faith:  What is the gift of faith? It is a spontaneous supernatural impartation, which gives a person the ability to believe without a doubt.

Gift of healings:  Here the word healings is plural, it has to do with several healings, such as sickness, fever, headaches and emotional healings. 

Gift of miracles: The gift of miracles in the ability to supercede the natural laws. It is what Jesus used when He turned the water into wine. The gift of miracles is going beyond the natural, not using the natural, but going beyond the natural. Creative miracles, a limb being created out of nothing.  Creative acts – this is the gift of miracles.

Once again, these are the gifts the prophet or any other believer can flow in, but mainly the prophet.  

Be blessed as you continue your growth in Him.

  1. A prophet is a person that speaks the word of God into the earth or to His people.
    A prophet does go through a time of training and preparation. This period last years, and it is not an easy road.
