So Said the Prophet

Hopefully, not gone are the days when we speak over the lives of our loved ones! Those of us who grew up in the South can recall the phrase “put mouth on you”. Whenever this phrase came into play it was almost always associated with something bad. Typically an older person would get fed up with the action/s of a younger person am say something like, “Boy you are going to miss out on a lot in life because you don’t listen” . Often times this would be associated with pointed fingers and beaded eyes. This would get your attention because it seemed as if the atmosphere changed for that moment while they spoke.

1 Corinthians 14:4-6

4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.

5 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, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.

Why would the apostle Paul request that those associated with the church desire to prophesy? It is simple, when we prophesy we speak to nations and generations. People have a little hesitancy to believe the interpretation of a tongue language because they are depending on the interpreter to get it right and not to add/miss anything.

However, when a word is spoken in prophesy it has a specific landing spot. Once it takes root it grows from generation to generations, nation to nations, and it never dies. Your grandparents spoke into your lives the same things that was spoken over their lives. We just need to make sure that the speaking into does not stop with us.

So what did the prophet say today?

Reminder: Antioch is still praying as a church between the hour of 12:00 – 1:00pm!
