Three of the most misunderstood members of the body of Christ are often linked together in their application therefor mistaken for one another. Perhaps this is because of these can be hard to fully understand individually without knowing about the others. The Church has ignored those who operate in the gift of prophecy, the ministry of a spiritual seer, and the actions of those who are called as a prophet due to this confusion and the misunderstanding. What is the difference between these vital members of the body?
The gift of seeing into the spirit realm often causes individuals to be labeled as a prophet when they are really a seer. The title itself is misleading, for information received from the spiritual realm isn’t limited to just seeing. This gift, often given at birth, allows someone to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel things that are happening in the spirit realm. For them, the veil between this world and heaven is very thin and they can peer into it.
Psychics, witch doctors, shaman, and mystics are often born with this gift. The difference is from whom they receive things. Without Jesus making a bridge for us, seers hear from demons instead of the Holy Spirit. For this reason, it is imperative to know how to “test the spirits.”
