Prophesying??

Tomorrow (Saturday) night is another Ignite Service! 
Join us at 6:30pm (or whenever you can come) for some worship, fellowship, and learning.

The teaching will be on prophesying. If you're around, you really don't wanna miss this! Check out 1 Corinthians 12-14. Do you find it somewhat ironic that one of the most quoted/preached on/memorized chapters in the Bible (The Love chapter) is squished between two chapters about prophesying and other spiritual gifts? Why do we miss this??

Possibly because the word prophesying in itself is a bit...weird. The root-word reminds me a prophet which makes me think of the Old Testament and the prophecies written in there. Many of those prophets were speaking of the future and definitely not all good things. Which logically, you would think prophesying is about fortune-telling with a spiritual twist or something, yes? It's a lot easier to talk about or preach on love than it is about fortune-telling!

But Paul puts it pretty plainly for us in 1 Corinthians 14:3. "But one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them." 

Sounds pretty great, huh? I mean, who doesn't want to be strengthened and encouraged and comforted? No matter where we are in our walk with God--mountain, valley, or somewhere in between--I believe everyone appreciates it.  
I know I do! 

Even if this word "prophesying" still makes you feel a little uncomfortable, I invite you to come to HOME tomorrow night anyway. Believe the Truth that God wants to help YOU in your walk with Him. He wants to provide you with strength and encouragement and comfort. See you tomorrow night!! It's gonna be a good time! :) 

If you can't make it Saturday night, check out the HOME website & sign up for prophecy on the 1st-3rd Monday nights. Here!
