Who can prophesy?
“Surely the Lord YHVH does nothing unless He reveals His secret to His servants, the prophets. A lion has roared! Who will not fear! The Lord YHVH has spoken! Who can but prophesy?” (Amos 3:7-8)
Yeshua is the Anointed One (Psa. 2:2): He is the Prophet, High Priest, and King. We who are born-again by the Holy Spirit are in Messiah, in Christ, in the Anointed One, and have an anointing from the Holy God. (1 John 2:20-29)
God reveals what He is doing to His servants, the prophets. Yet, He also says through Amos that He has spoken, and that all can prophesy! In other words, if we believe what God says, and understand it in our times, then we can all be ‘prophetic’, with the anointing that we have each received. The spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Yeshua/Jesus. We do not need to be caught unprepared for the things prophesied to come, as Israel was because of not believing what YHVH spoke to them.
Let us all be on guard against deception by abiding in the truth of what the Lord has said, and that is written for us in the whole of Scripture.
