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.
