Personal prophecy can and should be a great blessing from the Lord to His Church. It can also be an effective evangelism tool, when used rightly. But, as with any of the gifts of the Spirit, it must be cherished and guarded carefully. Those of us who are releasing prophecy to others must watch over the attitudes of our own hearts, so that our words are genuine and pure. And those of us who are on the receiving end of a prophetic word must use wisdom in discerning whether it is truly from the Lord or not, as well as maturity in how we respond to it.
The Spirit-Filled Guide to Personal Prophecy explains how to discern personal prophetic words which you receive from others and what to do with those words once you've got them. It also gives practical guidelines for how to keep out of trouble when you are prophesying personal words to others.

For anyone who desires to know more about prophecy - both giving and receiving words - I highly recommend this guidebook. Teaching from Scripture, Rubsam explains how prophecy is meant to be used and what its purposes are, and offers helpful criteria in discerning words received from others as well as administering prophecy in church and in the marketplace. I especially appreciated the warning flags given that appeal to ego or that come from personal observation, as I believe "soulish prophecy" is an easy trap for many of us. The contrast of more "humble prophecies" that are seldom given particularly struck me. From my personal experience, many of us are exposed to the gifts of the Spirit without foundational Biblical teaching on them, and this usually produces two reactions: we either flee in fear, or we embrace everything that's served up as prophetic without testing it, and thereby open ourselves up to that which might not be the Holy Spirit. This book is a powerful and constructive tool to instruct and build up the church in prophecy in a way that is healthy and wise
