“The prophetic” is terminology used in the church to talk about the active gift of prophecy. When someone says, “I don’t believe in ‘the prophetic'”, they mean that they don’t believe that the prophetic gift is for use today. They are wrong.
All the gifts of the Spirit are alive and well, thank you very much. And the prophetic gift is as important today as it was when the Holy Spirit released Himself to us. The prophetic gift is all about hearing God. It may be communicated in an idea, a picture, colors, a feeling, or a physical sensation. Usually, the person receiving the prophetic word will understand the message because it will usually confirm what that person already knows.
The prophetic gift is wonderful to practice and receive. Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. (1Cor 14:1) Why? Because God is so encouraging. Even when we need to be reprimanded, He is kind. But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. (1Cor 14:3)
We all want to hear from God and know what He wants to do in our lives. Receiving a prophetic word is amazingly comforting, and it draws the giver and receiver together in a spiritual bond like nothing else. Pursue the prophetic and let God speak to you. You will love it.
