The Greek word for the gift of prophecy is propheteia which is the ability to receive a divinely inspired message and deliver it to others in the church.
1 Corinthians 14:1 to “Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy.” To prophesy is a spiritual gift. It is to reveal divine revelation, knowledge given by God, to others. It is not complicated. It comes in varying forms, from words of knowledge & encouragement, to detailed visions and dreams. I am sharing this video of a 2 year old child prophesying the coming of Christ. She has knowledge outside her understanding. Using the words “Abba Up” pointing towards heaven. And she bows 3 times. The number three is a symbol of confirmation. I believe this is what the true spiritual gift of prophecy looks like. We know for a fact that her prophesy is true. No man knows the day or the hour, he will come like a thief in the night, so we must always be ready! This is still prophetic in many ways, she speaks truth of an event she has no knowledge of. Later in the video the mother explains the details of what happened prior to this video being made. It’s very beautiful, the Lord is coming…are you ready to meet your King?
