Prophetic Integrity: Maintaining Integrity in Today's Prophetic Ministry
by Eddie and Alice Smith
Prophetic ministry is one of the most controversial and confusing, yet one of the most crucial ministries in the body of Christ. In 1 Corinthians 14:1, the Apostle Paul told the Corinthian Christians to "... eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy." Prophecy is one of the seven primary motivational gifts listed in Romans 12; and one of the five ministry gifts listed in Ephesians 4. Since God began to highlight the prophetic gifts in the 1980s, many methods and models have emerged. Some of those are biblical, others are not.
In this book, Eddie and Alice draw from their personal experiences with the prophetic, as well as from what they've encountered in their worldwide ministry. They transparently share their journey, story after story, and pull no punches when it comes to identifying and examining problems that many are bringing into the prophetic arena.
