We Test Prophetic Words with Scripture

Jesus’ name is the Word of God (Rev. 19:13). God is a God of order, and the spirit of the Word is not that of confusion, but rather of harmony and unity. All points to the Person and work of Jesus Christ. All of the prophecies in the bible point to Jesus Christ.

All of these prophetic words were foundational for discovering who God is. All these biblical prophecies, biblical analogies, bible types are so rooted in Jesus Christ that his existence is the only thing that allow all of these things to make sense.

Prophecy must conform to the Word of God. The basic requirement for a prophetic word is for it to be in harmony with the Bible (1 Jn. 4:1); otherwise, it is from a different source (Gal. 1:6-8). As mentioned previously, a prophetic word must testify to Jesus. Scripture is clear that prophecies should reveal Jesus Christ (Rev. 19:10; 1 Jn. 4:2-3). They should glorify Jesus, not any other person. Third, there is also a moral test that the prophet must pass. Is the person giving the prophecy exhibiting moral character that is consistent with his office and ministry? The prophet must be careful to maintain his prophetic integrity (Mt. 7:15-16). The fruit of people with a rotten heart is rotten. However, the fruit of people who exhibit the fruit of reading the Bible and living it out in their lives is something no one can duplicate.


Members of the apostolic team and the Office of the Prophet can judge and measure if a prophecy is really God-given. They have a special anointing for discerning the spirit of a person, and they have the authority to do this.
