Prophetic Activations: Things We Should Consider

Prophetic activations are something that I have become accustomed with over the years. I have participated in prophetic activations and I have also used them when training others in prophetic ministry. Training people in the prophetic is very effective when done correctly including the use of prophetic activations. But over the years I have become a little more cautious as it relates to prophetic activations.

The prophetic is powerful when it is pure and truly from God and I am a firm believer that everyone can and should prophesy (reference: 1 Corinthians 14:31). Sadly, many have a greater desire to prophesy than to have a relationship with God. Below are a few things to consider as it relates to prophetic activations.

1. Who are we activating?: Prophetic activations that are open to the public means that anyone can have access to it. There needs to be more accountability in place to ensure we are not activating people that are witches, unsaved, or that are not filled with the Holy Spirit. It is becoming dangerous to allow any and everybody to be trained in the prophetic with no clue about the individual.

Teachings on prophets, prophesy, dreams, and dream interpretation will always draw people operating in the occult. They crave the supernatural and are always looking for new ways to master their "craft'. So we need to be mindful that public prophetic trainings will draw a variety of people.

2. Do they know Jesus?: Many want to use activations and impartation as a replacement for intimacy and a true relationship with God. Although activations assist people to grow in the prophetic many are wanting to grow in the prophetic while being disconnected from God. I am a firm believer that if you get close to God you will hear His voice. Prophetic training should be like a catalyst but your intimate relationship with God should be igniting you and putting you in a place to hear the voice of the Lord.
