Prophecy Have You Heard
When we read the Bible, all through the Bible we read and see Prophecy truths and them coming to pass. We see God sending His Prophets to speak to certain people (individuals or groups) for Him just as He did in Judges 6:8.
There are many Prophetic Ministries today who are in operation and are a True God Inspired Ministry, which can encourage and strengthen us and comfort us for the person it's meant for. You can read more here 1 Corinthians 14:3 for more on this subject.
There is a difference between the person with the prophecy and with the one who is appointed to office of the prophet in the Body of Christ. A prophet has a stronger word for the church at large, then someone who is operating in the gift of prophecy to simply strengthen and to encourage believers.
Prophecy must be consistent with the Word of God, and as a personal word of prophecy should confirm something that is already in your heart. If a word is truly from God, He will make it happen in His own timing, just Hold on to that Prophecy in your heart and wait and see if God brings it to pass.
He does still speak today through Prophecy, and God will confirm prophetic words to you when they truly represent His Heart!
