In the beginning, God spoke and there was light. Light and revelation come from anointed utterances. The prophetic word releases, activates, initiates, exhorts, comforts, and confirms. Prophetic utterances activate and release the plans and purposes of God. The prophetic word is creative. Prophecy not only informs us of what God is doing, but it actually triggers the move (Psalm 105:31, 34). Prophecy does more than confirm, it releases. This is true concerning both personal prophecy and corporate prophecy.
We know that everyone is not a prophet (1 Corinthians 12:29). Prophets prophesy with more authority and revelation because they speak from the strength and position of their office. The simple gift of prophecy, however, is speaking unto men to edification, exhortation, and comfort (1 Corinthians 14:3). Prophecy is a building gift. To edify means to build. We get our word edifice from this word, which means a building or a structure. Prophecy is an integral part of building the Church. When we build people, we build the Church.
They help the church break through into new realms of spiritual power and revelation. We define building apostolically as the grace and ability to root out, pull down, destroy, throw down, build and plant (Jeremiah 1:10). Apostles and apostolic teams have the authority to pull down and build up. They pull down the strongholds of darkness and build up the saints. When a team comes into a region, there will be breakthroughs and impartations released that will add momentum to the work. There are conferences being held throughout the world emphasizing the restoration of the apostolic ministry.
