The Origin Of Prophecy

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


2 Peter 1:21

For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.


The Apostle Peter made it very clear concerning “The Origin of Prophecy.” He said that humans didn’t make prophetic utterances up; rather, the words were given to them by God, and the Holy Spirit strengthened them to give them.


Don’t make the mistake of thinking that humans aren’t involved in the gifts of the Spirit. The fact is, we are God’s vessels to deliver the gifts to His people. But He is the one orchestrating the content. There is the possibility of fabricating these gifts. That is a real concern. However, phonies are always discovered in time. The normal workings of the gift of Prophecy or any other gift originates in heaven. God gives the words, the Holy Spirit empowers His vessel (i.e. you and me), and the gift is presented to one or more people. If you’ve ever wondered, that comprises “The Origin Of Prophecy.”


Dear Jesus,

This AM I’m so happy that You are the originator of all the Gifts of The Spirit. Today it is my desire to be used as Your vessel. Amen
