Difference between a Prophetic gift and a Prophet ministry

Difference between a Prophetic gift and a Prophet ministry - study
ministergospel2

Greetings,
Praise the Lord! I would like to share message received that is God's Word of wisdom in due season: The Book of Acts Chapter 13 (pt 7 of 27) by Nickolas Hiemstra August 24 message to members of Doulos Studies in Facebook:
Yesterday we talked about the difference between a Prophetic gift and a Prophet ministry. What they are and how they differ. We saw that for someone to be a prophet, he stands in the office and uses that "ministry gift." Other spiritual gifts besides prophecy must operate in his ministry. I also mentioned that the simple gift of prophecy is for speaking to someone to strengthen, encourage or comfort themthere's no foretelling, no prediction whatsoever.
The reason I covered as much as I have is because I want you to realize that spiritual things can be misused just as natural things can be misused. Some people think that just because it's spiritual, it has to be perfect, that it can't be misused. People have lost fortunes following the guidance of a "prophet." Ministries have fallen because of people following the guidance of a "prophet." Marriages have been arrangedthen fell apart because they were guided by a "prophet."
First, judge prophecies by the Word of God. If it's not in line with the Word of God, it's not right. Secondly, you must judge personal prophecies by what you already have in your spirit. It should confirm what is already there. If you don't have it in your own spirit, don't accept it! You can listen to it, judge it and maybe save it for another day. But if it doesn't "ring" a bell inside your spirit, don't build your life on it. Don't guide your life by prophecies. Build your life on the Word of God! Let those other things be secondary. Put the Word of God first!
I've heard people say, "Well, if God is doing it, it has to be all right . . ." You have to realize that it isn't exactly God doing it. It is men doing it "by the inspiration" of the Spirit of God. Anything that has man involved isn't perfectthe Spirit of God is perfectthe gifts of the Spirit are perfectbut they aren't always perfect in manifestations, because they are manifested through imperfect vessels.
So let two or three prophets speak [those inspired to preach or teach], while the rest pay attention and weigh and discern what is said. But if an inspired revelation comes to another who is sitting by, then let the first one be silent.
"Let the prophets speak . . ." He's talking about "ministry office" of prophets herenot just everybody prophesying. Don't accept it just because a prophet said it. It is to be judged according to the Bible. We are not judging people; we are judging what was said.
If interested, you can download the entire study of The Book of Acts:

I will continue to study and maybe share it in Celebrate Jesus! Ministries group and websites as the Lord guide me.
