What is prophecy?
At Glasgow Vineyard, we believe that God speaks to us today.
1 Corinthians 14:1 "Follow the way of love and eagerly desire the gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy" and 1 Corinthians 14: 3 states that "But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to all men." Prophecy reveals God's heart or mind on a given subject, but must always be weighed and tested against what God says in the Bible.
We believe that the gift of prophecy is to be nurtured and developed within the context of the body of Christ, the local church. To that end we have developed a training programme that encourages those who have or desire the gift of prophecy, to be trained in recognising the voice of God and to develop their gifting. Once an initial, foundation training has been completed, individuals may be invited to join the Prophecy Team. The Prophecy Team is lead by Linda Watters, one of our Senior Pastors and the team meet regularly to hone and develop their gifting.
What is a Prophecy Appointment?
A prophecy appointment happens before church with three/ four people, who have been trained in prophecy, pray for you and hear what God says to encourage you, strengthen you or comfort you. We then send you a recording of the session, to allow you to test and weigh the prophecy and to help you remember what had been said. The sessions usually last around 20-30 minutes.
