Prophetic Training

My Prophetic Training

What is prophetic training? I wanted to know the same thing. I wondered if it meant that I would start seeing into the future or seeing someone’s life. I especially wanted to know how God would use this gift in my church home. I was surprised to find that there was so much that had to be done in me before I did anything for Him with respect to the prophetic.

As I sought God for His purpose, what I found is that I had to first understand who I was. Before the foundation of the world God created me and He had a purpose in mind. Through the years, I have altered God’s creation, without realizing it, for various reasons. Some of those reasons I truly believed were good ones; well they were not.

My initial time in training was spent, undoing the damage I have done to God’s creation. It was necessary so I could come to a place where I saw myself as God intended. It was only then that God could really use this gift.

The process I took had a couple of steps.
1.  I journaled every day, I wrote my thoughts, ideas, decisions that I make etc. I have to mention this was not two-way journaling that I discovered when I stated my doctoral training. 
2.  I used the Prophet’s Handbook and the Prophet’s Dictionary by Paula A. Price PhD for intellectual training.
3.  My class sessions were spent going over the weekly journal and the class work from the handbook.

If you are seeking God to discover what He has called you to do, you can follow this same process or any variation that God leads you to do. You can either start reading from the recent links or you can start at the beginning of my journey click here.
