After receiving my calling as a prophet in a very specific, unusual way, I have decided to look into what this may mean. One thing has become readily apparent: there is much confusion between the spiritual gift of a prophecy and being a prophet. Among the gifts given by the Holy Spirit, the Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 12:10 (Amp), "and to another prophecy [foretelling the future, speaking a new message from God to the people]” When anointed ministers of God use this gift prolifically, people often begin to call them a prophet. This is inaccurate. They are not prophets, they are merely using the gift of the Spirit called prophecy. A prophet is a person that God actually moves upon, calling them into the office of a prophet, anointing them to be His mouthpiece to a country, a people, or even the nations.
