Hi....IF your reply is to my post.....no offense was intended. Let me just say that I don't have any group, nor is my motive to silence or censor anyone, but to offer wisdom gleaned from the fire to whosoever will.
There is a great misunderstanding of what prophecy is and is not among the church, and it is the counterfeit that I am speaking of, one which is so subtle yet bordering on a spirit of divination in it's manifestation.
Prophecy is not someone telling you what's going to happen next Tuesday (future), or what you had for lunch yesterday (past); both the thieves on the cross had the same testimonies, but the spirit of prophecy is the Lord's testimony and by definition it is declaring (making a declaration, the right of a king) those things that are not as though they were, and is forever in the NOW mode. He speaks and it becomes part of the Christ being formed in us, part of the QUICKENED body. We have a tendency to call it "revelation", but really it's no different that the Spirit hovering above the waters, and we're the waters/spirits He's hovering above, declaring something that was not as though it was (NOW).
We see it at work first in Genesis 1 where the Spirit of God is hovering above the waters. In the current dispensation, prophesying is a speaking gift assigned to the office of the prophets, and it is used in conjunction with two of the other speaking gifts, word of knowledge and word of wisdom.
One of the most awesome examples of this is where God has the prophet to prophesy over the dry bones, ie. speaking those things that are not as though they were (realm of absolute authority). A king speaks in His kingdom, and there is no one to speak against it. His word is absolute, to be carried out immediately.
This action "puts meat on the bones", ie. the law (not a bone of His was broken) is clothed in the spiritual flesh of Christ, a many-membered body set to appear. So I offer this guideline again.....does it "put meat on the bones", ie. add to the spiritual wisdom/flesh of Christ?
The first line of Revelation sums it all up, the revelation of Jesus Christ. He is being revealed in a people that are called by His name/formed into His nature. Where is Jesus Christ NOW? Is He not in us? Where did Paul say in Romans the glory was going to be revealed, and was it not in us? What is that glory, is it not the only begotten son of the Father and didn't He say in Colossians that Christ is the hope of glory?
So my point is; why are we looking to a natural, literal everything, when we have a spiritual covenant, PARTICULARLY when it comes to prophecy? There needs to be balance both ways. Just my
