Exploring the teachings found in the Holy Scripture (The Bible) will help you gain a profound understanding of the world and its complexities. It will also help you find meaning, purpose, and direction in your life. Accessing the wisdom and clarity that can only be found in God’s Word is not an option; it is a necessity. Countless individuals throughout history have relied on this invaluable resource as their guiding light, and so should you. Don’t hesitate to seek the truths that will transform your life.

Introduction:

In our blog series, we have been exploring the intricacies of delivering a prophetic word. In the previous installment, we delved into the critical role of prayer and preparation in this process. Building on that, we will now focus on another crucial aspect: the importance of substantiating the prophetic word with the relevant Scriptural references. By doing so, we establish the validity and authenticity of His Word and help the recipients understand how it aligns with the teachings of Jesus in the Bible.

Section 2: Confirming with Scripture

As individuals tasked with delivering a prophetic word, we are responsible for ensuring that the words we speak are from The Holy Spirit and in complete alignment with the timeless truths enshrined in God’s Word. 1 Thessalonians 5:20–21 instructs us to scrutinize and evaluate every word that is spoken and to hold fast to what is good. This command emphasizes the importance of validating prophetic words by comparing them to the unchanging and reliable benchmark of Scripture.

Scriptural Support:

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21 (NLT): “Do not scoff at prophecies, but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.”
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21 (ESV): “Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good.”

Practical Tips:

  1. By making it part of your daily life and regularly studying the Bible, you will gain a profound understanding of God’s principles and teachings. This will help strengthen your faith and deepen your relationship with God. So, take the time to read, meditate, and reflect on the scriptures, and let His Divine Wisdom guide you on your spiritual journey.
  2. When you receive prophetic insights, it’s essential to make sure that they align with The Word of God. One way to do this is by looking at relevant passages of Scripture to support your message. This will help you gain a deeper understanding of the insights and ensure that they align with the teachings of Jesus. By consulting the Scriptures, you can ensure that The Holy Spirit guides your decisions and will lead you on the right path. So, don’t hesitate to seek out the wisdom of the Scriptures and use them as a foundation for your decision-making process.
  3. Suppose you have received prophetic words and feel uncertain about their biblical accuracy. In that case, it’s highly recommended to seek counsel from trusted spiritual leaders or mentors who deeply understand the Word of God. They can guide you and help you discern the truthfulness of these words, ensuring that you’re on the right path and following God’s will for your life.
  4. It is essential to be open and willing to make adjustments or refinements to your message, especially if it contradicts the teachings of Scripture or lacks sufficient Biblical support. Ensure your message aligns with the teachings of the Bible and its authority.

Conclusion:

It is crucial to validate prophetic words by cross-checking them with Scripture to prevent the spread of incorrect doctrines and guarantee that our messages are anchored in His Divine Truth. As bearers of prophetic messages, we must maintain the reliability of God’s Word and communicate His messages honestly and accurately. In the concluding installment of our series, we will delve into practical strategies for conveying prophetic words with empathy and sincerity.
