Prophecy is a grossly misunderstood spiritual gift that often gets maligned or abused. In this episode, Kenny explains what the Old Testament office of “prophet” actually consisted of and how that changed in the New Testament, being imputed to every believer because we now all have access to the fullness of the Holy Spirit.
Kenny highlights spiritual gifts as they are related to prophecy (1 Corinthians 12:8-10), explains how prophecy ought to be used today in the church, and why it is important for us to understand the difference the gift of prophecy and the gift of utterance of knowledge.
