Prophetic Culture Challenge, Part 2: Prophets Versus Prophesy - Jeremy Caris

Believers who function in the gift of prophecy are not necessarily prophets. Prophets are called by Christ to a greater level of service and responsibility within the body of Christ. There is a fundamental distinction between prophets versus prophecy. Let me state it unequivocally: the gift of prophecy available to all Spirit-filled believers does…(Read More)

Real Unity In The Body Of Christ

I have many strong passions and opinions. They may focus my life and ministry, but they should never become the limiting topic of my personal connection and conversation with God. If I center my life with God on my most important issues instead of on Christ himself, then I will eventually begin to uphold agreement…(Read More)

Prophets are like living mortar in the foundation, like concrete flowing and filling in the gaps and crevices; strengthening and molding the pieces together into one fortified wall. Without the prophet, the foundations become weakened and unstable. In the New Covenant, a prophet’s ultimate mission is the same as everyone else’s: we are…(Read More)

It’s no secret there’s a mentality that has invaded the Church that intentionally marginalizes the supernatural to attract people and grow without needing to rely on the demonstration of the Spirit and power of God. But biblically, there is no such thing as the harvest versus the supernatural. Separating the two is an…(Read More)

When John the Baptist wanted to know if Jesus was the Messiah who was to come, Jesus presented this evidence: “people are healed of many diseases and plagues, people are delivered from evil spirits, the blind see, the dead are brought to life, and good news is freely preached to those who have nothing to…(Read More)
