Prophecy – What is it?

Prophecy – What is it?

Tweet If you watched my Vlog, What is Prophecy? this week, here is the teaching I promised.  Sorry it is a little late, after the She Speaks Conference, I took a little vacation and rest time. The word ‘Prophecy’ and ‘Prophet’ seem to be buzz words right now.   Also, the word ‘prophecy,’ is one of the things, which people get really funny about.  However, it doesn’t need to be that way.   Jesus lived His life in such a way that He modeled for us how we are to live our life.   Jesus showed us what real relationship with the Father looks like, which is a two way conversation.  He modeled listening to God the Father and then doing or speaking what God showed Him to do – this is the Spiritual Gift of Prophecy in action. One last thing before I move on to what prophecy is…. Prophecy always has the Heart of God behind it, which is LOVE ! I Cor 13:41-7 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.  (1 Corinthians 13:1-3). Below is an excerpt from Chapter 8 of my book  Milk, Eggs, Prophecy: A Healthy New Take on the Radically Ordinary Nature...

What is Prophecy? (Vlog) Lessons from the Lake #8

Tweet What exactly is prophecy? Is it even Biblical? and if it is, is it for today? Yes, it is Biblical.  (1 Corinthians 14 plus many others) Yes it is for today. (Hebrews 13:8) To learn exactly what prophecy is listen in, and join me for today’s video on Lessons from the Lake. In this Thursday’s upcoming post, Prophecy – What is it?  I will expand more on what is prophecy? from my teaching found in my training manual, “Releasing God’s Heart, Through Hearing His Voice.”  You can find it on Amazon if you would like to check it out.   Prophecy is the ability to release God’s heart through #encouragement, #strengthening, and #comfort.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This ­ **Update:  Thank you to everyone who notified me that my website went down last week.  As soon as I tried to schedule Thursday’s blog post “Not Against Flesh and Blood,” on Wednesday of last week,  the server with all my content when down and was down for 3+ days.  Bad enough right?  But then after She Speaks, I was off to a writing retreat with a group of blogging friends and the wifi – mysteriously goes out!?!?  Can’t even get connected with me cell phone.

Not Against Flesh and Blood …

Not Against Flesh and Blood …

Tweet This week, I am attending the She Speaks Conference in North Carolina.  I am so excited to be attending this event for the first time.  First I am excited because it is part of my #ONEWORD for the year, which is… Advance. A part of my word “Advance,” I will be meeting with a few publishers while I am at She Speaks, so your prayers are greatly appreciated.  Second, I am so looking forward to meeting some of you, my blogging friends, face to face.  YAY!!! **Update:  As soon as I tried to post this message the server with all my content when down and was down for 3+ days.  Bad enough right?  But then I head to a writing retreat with a group of blogging friends and the wifi – mysteriously goes out!?!?  Can’t even get connected with me cell phone.

What is Dare 2 Hear? (Vlog) Lessons from the Lake #7

What is Dare 2 Hear? (Vlog) Lessons from the Lake #7

Tweet A lot of new people visiting my Blog and Vlog  have been curious about  what Dare 2 Hear is? and what it’s it all about? – so I thought I would take a minute or two and share with you on the Vlog this week. Dare 2 Hear the Voice of God is a Non-Profit 501(c)3 organization that was started in 2007 to teach and equip believers how to hear the voice of God in their own lives. God is after real, authentic relationship with you and I. We were created for relationship with Him, and in real relationships there is a two way conversation that happens.  God longs for you and I to talk to Him, but also to listen/hear, see, and obey Him as well! Dare 2 Hear the voice of God in your life today.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This     I believe God is Real and He speaks today! Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” I believe when God speaks, it will never, ever contradict Scripture. I believe Scripture is our compass for life and it points us to True North, which always leads us towards God! John 10:27 says.  “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” There are a lot of voices vying for out our attention in today’s world, what we need to do, is learn to turn in to the Voice of Truth and tune out all the rest.  I am very passionate about teaching others that God is very real, alive and wants relationship with them....

this post contains affiliate links Tweet Last week,in my post Climb Every Mountain, I shared, how sometimes God will take a simple movie and connect it to a spiritual principle or message for me. Even as I was writing the post last week, I knew God wanted to speak more about the phrase ‘the mountain makes its own weather.’  I love how God speaks something and then continues to build upon it as we wait and listen.   God is so good at fitting things together, even if we don’t know He’s doing it.  The Vlog Post for this week Build Your Kingdom Here was recorded before July 4th, and yet, when I sat down to write last weeks blog post on July 6th, I still didn’t connect the dots. God was already brewing the “something more” in regards to His spiritual message about climbing mountains.  He was already moving and breathing in my spirit something that His Spirit was already stirring in my heart. Don’t you just love How God orchestrates all things together, even while we are unaware?!   As I kept thinking and meditating on the phrase ‘the mountain makes its own weather,’ I was struck by the reason the mountain makes its own weather.  I researched it and in fact, because Everest and other mountains have such high elevations, they basically have their very own atmosphere and their own weather, well sort of. Now, I am not a scientist, nor am I a meteorologist, but the gist of what I understand in nontechnical terms, is that because of the elevation at different places on the...
