Prophetic Ministry

Prophetic Ministry (non-miraculous type)--Those gifted in prophetic ministry feel compelled to call people back to God, providing correction and upholding right and wrong, often in regards to social justice.  It is not foretelling the future, but speaking the words of God.  Historically, these lonely voices have been marginalized by God’s people and need to be affirmed in their role.  An example of leading through prophetic ministry would be calling the church out because of its neglect of the poor (Amos 5:11-13).

Testimony/Example of How People Have Used This Gift: 

Ric, youth counselor, single--“Can a gift be frustrating?  Is discontentment a gift? I do know that a man/woman can sense when things aren’t or are the way they are intended to be . . . . I believe that I have that knack. I believe that it’s a gift and a burden that I have been blessed with. The intuitive feeling, or 6th sense almost, that you sense when things are misguided, watered down, or gotten stuck in rituals . . . I am not afraid to speak up in these circumstances. Whether it be having a conversation with a minister, elder, friend, teaching a class on what needs to change, speaking out for the mistreated, raising money to help give the less fortunate a fighting chance, encouraging people to seek authentic worship, or picking up and moving 600 miles to tell ‘at-risk’ kids what life should really be about . . . It’s tough being perceived as ‘Mr. Negative,’ or being accused of being too blunt. But God is good and has equipped me with the personality traits and support system to press on in our overall mission of turning the world back to Him."

Dr. James Nored, Author, Minister
