      Troy Day sorry was coaching a state tournament game. Prophetic preaching is preaching that lifts issues of the marginalized by preaching empowerment to the oppress and speaking truth to power. That pretty much sums it up, however I Pentecostal circles we have made it about telling the future and dancing afterwards πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      Revelation 19:10 KJV β€” And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

    “Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.
    Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.”

    I would say also prophetic preaching clearly defines sin and it’s judgment with a portion of promise and comfort for the broken and contrite. Christ himself being the remedy.

    Prophetic preaching speaks to the present condition of souls seeking reconciliation and restoration in and with God. It has both unction and urgency. It also speaks to the future challenges and opportunities which the church need pursue.

      Ha,that actually is a good question, even though I susbect you are tongue in cheek. I don’t equate preaching directly with prophesy, but it can and should be prophetic. Personally, I think there should be some interchange, within reason. After all, that was the New Testament pattern: “How is it then, brothers? When you come together, every one of you has a psalm, a teaching, a tongue, a revelation, and an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification” (1 Cor. 14:26). If one is supposed to come prepared, how is what they have used if it is only the preacher preaching.

      You are always sober minded Link.
      OT vs NT approach to the throne seems unchanged: we have to wait for the high priest to bring us a ” revelation; a message from the Most High God…”
      It was a one man responsibilty to relay Gods sms to rest(congregation)..
      The ” seater” had no business but to wait…and get it from the horses mouth..ALL.
      But what you have raised up challenges the norm but the practitioners of the art of preaching won’t listen….they would rather have the ” seater” LISTEN TO THEM and won’t hold their peace if another sitting by receives a revelation..
      In 2Chron 20 King Jehoshapat was praying to God infront of the whole Judah when ” another sitting by” received a revelation and Jehoshaphathad to hold his peace..
      ” This is what the Lord says…” came from the congregation not from the one who was interceding for his nation…
      Link I think our modern day preaching(call it prophetic..or apostolic whatever) is a system whereby the Holy Spirit is “patented.”..” copy righted”…A property of the one who speaks…such that if they don’t speak you, who sits by, cannot hear from God..

      Ray E Horton not really tongue in xheek, actually. If prophesying is listed before teaching then should teaching yield for someone getting prophetic revelation like prophesying is supposed to?

      Has anyone ever seen Pentecostal prophesying follow the ‘let the first hold his peace’ verse?

      Isara Mo there are house churches that seek to followI Corinthians 14:26. Also the Plymouth Brethren Movement and the groups that were associated woth Watchman Nee’s ministry. Historically there was also Azusa Street. Philip Williams coukd tell us abouran Ariamn Pentecostal group that gad a ‘threshing floor’.

      There was a revival that tripled the number of evangelicals in England in the late 70s and early 80s. One Englishman descrived the harvest then and said he had someone he did not know knock on his door and ask him how to become a Christian. Another one I know described how meetings popped up in homes throughput London of people meeting and exercising spiritual gifts. They called it the house church movement there for a while. But eventually they followed cultural institutions, hired ‘the pastor’ and settled in church buildings to hear sermons.

      there is NO house churches in the Greek NT – the term is the church in your home referring to believers family, slaves and his home community in particular – all 3 times it occurs in the BIBLE The modern mainly Western but also US mantra of home-church is no where in the BIBLE

    The word for “preach, ” “proclaim” in the Greek New Testament is kerysso [khruvssw]. It is used thirty-two times in the Gospels, but about half of these are parallel occurrences within the Synoptic Gospels. “Proclaim” is complementary to the more specific term “evangelize” (euangelizomai) or the phrase “announce the good news, ” which contains within its meaning the object that is announced or proclaimed β€” the good news thus being prophetic in the sense of fulfilling the goals of the Gospel vial its audible proclamation

    However, usually when “proclaim” (kerysso [khruvssw]) is used the context includes its object, which in the majority of instances is the gospel or Jesus. The noun proclaimer, herald (keryx), refers to one who proclaims news publicly usually toward an audience of people. Proclaiming the Good News in their hearts is a prophetic fulfillment of the eschatological hope of the OT prophets. But is is also hope from an already-not-yet Kingdom reality to the listeners which makes it a prophecy

      Troy Day would ypu say associating ‘preaching’ woth what we do behind a pulpit is not always accurate? Much of ‘preaching’ is teaching or exhortation rather than evangelistic per se. Some people seem to think preaching means ‘loud teaching’ or ‘loud exhortation’.

      Paul was addressing a disorderly service but he gave them how to do an orderly service, pulpit no pulpit….and mentions things that should happen in a real spirit and truth worship….I think the problem with Corinth was lack of leadership.. but as to the “CONTENTS”of a real worship I think the church had them.
      If you read about stories of revivals, like Azusa and others, pulpit service was not the focus but the Spirit will move on people and gave utterances as He willed, healed and delivered without using Troy Days anointed “hands(A joke..take it)..
      About twelve years ago there was such a church in the city I am living…people would gather together for fellowship and there would be a move of the Spirit and the gifts would be manifest through those present….regardless of office(ie pastor or apostle or prophet…) but the fire is gone now and the church is now a story of ” it used to be…we saw gifts..”
      I believe we kind of ” stifle or strangle” gifts within people with this pulpit systematic preaching(my views..not Biblical though..)

    And several times it says when you speak in tongues you are speaking to God and the the interpretation is necessary in the church so they will be able to say amen at the giving of thanks. Read it verse by verse.

    A man either speaks as a spirit being or a carnal being: his utterance is either God moved(inspired) or own mind activated.
    When the utterance is spirit activated it is ” prophetic”( sounds big but is a small word)
    When Peter preached and 3000 got saved was it prophetic or apostolic since he,Peter was an apostle not a prophet.
    His utterance was spirit fired and the Bible said people were ” pierced ” to the heart..
    Isaiah ” prophesied”….uttering things not yet in…(foretelling the future) and we call his utterance ” prophecies”….
    John in the book of Revelation saw a vision and penned it…past, present and future…and the words are called ” words of this prophesy”……
    A preacher (not necessarily a prophet or apostle) would be preaching and in the midst of his preaching or teaching will pause and say ” I can see someone being healed of cancer..eg or God shows me or tells me this and that (you know all the stuff)…etc .This is also called prophecy…(Word of knowledge and Word of Wisdom?)
    I personally don’t see a precise definition of the so called ” prophetic preaching”
    When someone proclaims scriptures in whatever situation in the spirit wouldn’t they be ” prophesying”?
    We coin things to suit our styles…or to fit our tux…
    Call it ” prophetic preaching ” or whatever catchy phrase you give it, if preaching is mind propelled not spirit propelled it is utter empty utterance..sweet to the speaker…only.
    It might even sound like “SOUND DOCTRINE” where human logic and reason.and intelligence is used……sometimes ” prophetically”
