Spiritual Gifts: Prophecy.
1 Corinthians 14:1 says, Be eager to have the gifts that come from the Holy Spirit, especially the gift of prophecy. The gift of prophecy is when God reveals a message directly to someone so they can relay it to an individual or group of believers. We usually associate prophecy with telling the future, however, the Spiritual gift of prophecy is different to this.
I have seen the gift of prophecy in action at prayer and worship nights when someone gets a message of encouragement, instruction or comfort. The message is from God, not from the person speaking.
In 1 Corinthians Paul tells us that we should want to have the gift of prophecy more than the other spiritual gifts. Here's what else 1 Corinthians 14 says about prophecy:
1 Corinthians 14:3 But one who prophesies is speaking to people. He gives people strength, encouragement, and comfort.
1 Corinthians 14:4b But the one who prophesies is helping the whole church.
1 Corinthians 14:22b Prophecy is for people who believe, not for those who do not believe.
1 Corinthians 14:29 And only two or three prophets should speak. The others should judge what they say.
