Wow, what a discussion, I really have only had the chance to read only a few things, but I have the gift of prophesy and the Lord has had me personally in a wilderness season, but most who are called in the prophetic go through that season! The Lord himself did, kepp me in your prayers for I will overcome, not by might nor by power but by His Spirit.
I agree 100% the prophetic is awesome but at the same time, we need to have discernment! I love the prophetic and go to a very awesome church! We are and have been trained in the prophetic as well as evangelism! This is going to be a great here at this site blessing to you all
