The Difference between the Prophet and The Gift of Prophecy.
Shalom Brothers & Sisters, Myself I think the difference is that a Prophet is a man who is born in a different way, he hears from God according to Amos 3:7. A prophet foresees way off than a person who is having a gift of prophecy. The prophet said in a spoken word “God Doesn’t Call Man to a Judgment Without First Warning Him which was preached in 1963-0724”
108. The prophet is a special man. A prophet is a man of whom the Word of the Lord comes to, because the prophet is so designed (life) that his subconscious and his first conscious is so close together that he doesn’t go to sleep to dream his dream, he sees it when he’s wide awake. See? Now, that’s something God has to do. See, he sees what’s going.
109. A prophet foresees way off, see, the things that is coming. He sees the cup of God’s wrath, full, before it is filled. He can say, “THUS SAITH THE LORD! God will destroy this city except you repent.” Why? He’s an eagle. He rides way in yonder. See? And he looks way off there and he sees that cup of wrath poured out. That’s what the prophet’s looking at. He ain’t looking what’s going on here, he’s looking yonder! He’s saying, “It’s coming!” He can go so high till he can see that shade. He said, “The world will be dark—darkness and gross darkness.” He’s up high enough, the sun’s shining now, but he sees that shade coming, and he’s—he’s—he’s saying what he’s looking at. It ain’t here yet, but it’ll sure be here! That’s right. It’s going to be here, gross darkness upon the people. He knows it’s coming, years away, yet he sees it.
The Prophet also said in in the spoken word “Expectations which was preached in 1953-0810”. 11 (Second Paragraph) Now, those are the nine spiritual gifts that’s in the body now. They work through the body. But then there is gifts and callings without repentance. That’s an a vindicated prophet sent from God, from… You don’t receive that. That’s a gift sent from God, that’s born in your birth, come down through, and been set you down through. And that… A prophet, not a gift of prophecy…
The Gift of prophecy can move from one person to another and it must be judged before it is said before the people (Church) according to the Spoken word Demonology, Religious which was preached in 1953-0609, the prophet said in paragraph:
70 “God, in sundry times and divers manners spoke to the fathers through the prophets, in this last days through His Son, Christ Jesus.” And the Body of Christ has nine spiritual gifts operating in it. And it might be on this woman tonight, prophecy, may never be the rest of her life. It may be on this woman the next night. May be on this man the next time. May be on that one back there, the next time. That doesn’t make her a prophet, doesn’t make no one a prophet. It’s a gift of prophecy in you.
71 And before that man or that prophecy can be given to the church, it has to be judged before two or three spiritual judges. Is that right? According, now, Paul said, “You all may prophesy, one by one.” If something be revealed to this one, let that one hold his peace. Well, that would make the whole bunch prophets then, according to the teaching of today. No, Pentecostal church, we’ve got things all scrupled up. And that’s the reason God can’t come in, till we get the thing straightened out and on the Bible. That’s right. You got to get the right path. How you going to build a house without looking at the blueprint? See? You got to start right.
God bless you
