Overview

Prophetic Ministry: A Biblical Look at Seeing by David M Arns

Scripture tells us to "eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy" (I Corinthians 14:1, NIV). Why "especially" the gift of prophecy? The Bible seems to emphasize prophecy as the highest gift, so there must be a good reason. And indeed, there is; in fact, there are many. This book examines Scriptures that tell us about how prophecy works: Who is authorized to pursue this gift, how people can perceive messages from God, what forms they can take, how to deliver them to the intended recipients, the necessary attitude and demeanor when doing so, common pitfalls, and more. If you have been hungering to hear the voice of God, rest assured that you can, because Jesus said, "My sheep hear my voice" (John 10:27). You do hear His voice. That is wonderful in itself. But when you have the privilege of speaking into someone else's life God's own words for that specific person and moment and situation, that is even more wonderful. Yes, eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. You'll be glad you did.

About the Author

Dave Arns was raised in church, but didn't start actually serving the Lord until his sophomore year of high school, in 1972. Being of a rather analytical turn of mind, he was delighted to see that there is a Biblical mandate for all Christians to be analytical: I Thessalonians 5:21 (NIV) says "Test everything. Hold on to the good." That, coupled with Paul's exhortation to teach what "the Holy Ghost teaches," not depending on man's wisdom (I Corinthians 2:11-14), and the commendation of the Bereans, who "searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so" (Acts 17:11), pretty much define Dave's life, in the spiritual realm, as well as the natural realm. In the mid-1970s, Dave heard a sermon in which he was exhorted to "know what you believe and why you believe it," and he has been putting that into practice ever since. He has been known to abandon long-held beliefs when someone showed him that they were incompatible with Scripture; that attitude seems to be necessary if we want to continue to grow in the Lord.
