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.

Rooted In Identity — Jeremy Cairs

You’re not a prophet because of what you do. You are a prophet because it’s who God says you are. It’s identity first and function later.
