Re: Prophets in the church...Ephesians 4
A man who claimed to have a gift of prophecy visited a Church not far from my home about four months ago. I went to hear him with serious doubts in my mind. I prayed for a spirit of discernment on my way into the building. He got up to the pulpit and his first Powerpoint slide came on the screen. He began to speak, stopped in mid-sentence, pointed at me in a crowd of two hundred and prophesied over me. I was not a member of the Church, and this man knew things I had never told anyone. He knew about my illness, and that I was planning to quit seminary after my diagnosis. I felt like running. I was sobbing uncontrollably and everyone was staring at me. I'll never forget it, it really changed my life and the direction I was going. I went in that room a scoffer, and I honestly believe that not only did God put me in my place, but I still see it as the turning point in my faith in his supernatural power. Whoever says signs and wonders aren't for today should have been there.
