THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPHETIC DEVELOPMENT
If God didn’t say it, we must reject it. If the Bible does not verify our prophetic words, we are false prophets. In the prophetic ministry, we rely on the sufficiency of the written Word and the Word made flesh, Jesus Christ. We must be careful that we are not simply declaring our will, but God’s will through our prophetic

It is God’s word, because He speaks to us in its sacred pages. Whatever the inspired writers declare to be true and binding upon us, God declares to be true and binding. The Bible is our ultimate standard; the Bible is the highest form of prophetic word we can access.The Word of God is infallible. What does that mean for the prophetic ministry?

Thus, any prophetic declaration that comes afterward must support and be aligned with biblical truth.
