The Gift of Prophecy

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Now ‘the gift of prophecy’ is the first of the three ‘utterance gifts’ as I’ve discussed previously, with the others being ‘divers tongues’ and ‘interpretation.’ Of the three utterance gifts, prophecy is the best gift and I will prove it with scripture. Paul said, “I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues” (1 Cor 14:5). The Apostle reveals that to speak with tongues and interpret; is equivalent to prophecy and without interpretation in a public setting; tongues can cause confusion to the people present. Therefore, prophecy is really the most important of the three ‘gifts of inspiration’ or ‘utterance’ because it does not require another gift to complete it. Therefore by definition, prophecy is, ‘supernatural utterance in a known tongue.’ In contrast, ‘Divers tongues’ is a ‘supernatural utterance in an unknown tongue’ and ‘interpretation of tongues,’ ‘is a supernatural showing forth of that which has been said in an unknown tongue.'” – Pastor Carl
