Cindy started off the session by saying that those who are interested and supportive of prophets are either prophetic intercessors, prophets themselves, or are on their way.

For those who are just learning about the prophetic, Cindy mentioned that she wishes someone would have helped her in her early days. She feels like she would have made fewer mistakes. Early on in her ministry, she thinks she could have done a better job in her delivery. This is often the case with prophets when they are starting out, and that’s. That’s one of the reasons she wrote some of her books.

We can learn to be skillful at giving prophetic words, or how we apply or pray about them.

The gift of prophecy is very important. To emphasize this, Cindy mentioned 1 Corinthians 14, which talks about the importance of the prophetic gift. She pointed out that in verse one, the Bible says that we should eagerly desire the gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy. We should fervently and passionately desire the prophetic.

Cindy went on to mention how much easier it is to find correlating Bible verses and information now. When she first started preaching 45 years ago, she had a room full of study books. It used to take her hours.

 She shared some memories of one of their first prophetic conferences when Dutch Sheets gave a word about “setting a trumpet to your mouth.” This helped Cindy as she was really pursuing the prophetic at the time. She was just launching into the deep. Back then, she also met Bishop Bill Hammond, who she considers to be the father of the modern-day prophetic movement.

 Cindy mentioned that she first prophesied when she was four years old. She prophesied the birth of her little sister … She just knew things! 

There’s a lot of discussion about whether you are born with a prophetic gift or if you can develop it. When Cindy wrote her book, The Voice of God, she interviewed many different prophets to try to get to the bottom of this question. There’s natural wisdom then there’s wisdom given by God.

Cindy emphasized that it’s so important to develop prophetic gifts. We need all the gifts to manifest!  She said that it’s wonderful to see all the gifts of the Holy Spirit and all the offices functioning together.

Cindy thinks that we need to go back and teach on the offices (some of the basics). In the 1980s, these were taught a lot … In the 1990s, there was more of a focus on the prophets and prophecy … Many people don’t have the proper foundations and it would be good to go back and lay those foundations again.
