Been praying through a few thoughts on this lately.
I have received clear prophetic words 3 times in my life.
I don’t necesariy want to share the details of what was said here…in this public forum, but I will say this.
Three different ministers, conservative types all of them, shared with me points about myself that they believe God was sharing with them.
Their was no arrogance on their part, or dogmatism…just a sincere humble belief that God still speaks.
Coming as I have from a very conservative biblical education, emphasising a cessationalist form of ministry, this has been a huge area of growth and change for me.
One line that keeps convicting me….so often we speak from our lack of experience, and impose that upon the biblical text…rather than seeking the biblical experience that is plainly written in front of us. In other words…seeking that which is written in the Bible, rather than trying to ratiolalise it away.
