SPONTANEOUS AND PROPHETIC WORSHIP

The word "prophetic" is a very loaded word for many people. Like a lot of other topics in "church" it has been abused and misused. But we can't let others misuse of the resources of heaven cause us to dismiss God's intention and purpose for them in advancing the Kingdom through our lives. The truth is, as worshipers, we are prophetic people by nature. Some have argued that the modern day worship leader plays such a large role that a new office should be created along with the other 5 fold offices in the church: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. I think that is a symptom of misunderstanding and misapplication. Music and worship are prophetic and creative in nature, and fit better in the "prophet" category. The truth is, worship leading goes far beyond our set list on Sunday morning. As worshipers and prophetic people, we are blazing a trail in the transformation of peoples lives. We have the ability to capture the heart of God and release it into the earth with such a redemptive power that it can change the atmosphere over entire cities and regions.

Music and worship are prophetic and creative in nature, and fit better in the "prophet" category.
