Q&A on the Prophetic | #BeEquipped

Four12 Global Andrew Selley, ARTICLES, Mervis van der Merwe, Shaun Brauteseth


As an apostolic and prophetic movement, we have high regard for the gift of prophecy. With this in mind, we believe that the prophetic is for today, is valuable and necessary for the modern church, and should not be avoided but used correctly.

Andrew Selley recently addressed the issue of prophecy, the role of the prophetic and how God has been disciplining His people through the prophetic in, False Prophecies & Trump, What Now? As a follow-up to this clip, Shaun Brauteseth, Andrew Selley, and Mervis van der Merwe come together to address some questions around the topic of the prophetic and its application in the church.

They take a closer look at what prophecy is, the distinction between someone prophetically gifted and a prophet, practicalities around how to give, receive and deliver a prophecy, and what makes a false prophet.


This clip forms part of the #BeEquipped series – conversations around contemporary issues facing the church. You can find other videos from the series here.
