"This course deepened my understanding of the prophetic and the office of the prophet. I was able to gain clarity on the different types of prophets and how they function. Also, I learned that there is a difference between prophesying based on picking up someone’s soulish desires and prophesying according to the Spirit of God. A major takeaway of this course for me was that prophecy is to be taken seriously and the words prophets, or those prophesying, give need to be judged. Those releasing prophecy need to be held accountable for what they say. Personally, this made me pause. Even more than before, I want to think twice prior to prophesying because I now realize that I am accountable for every prophecy I speak, and I should be. Proper teaching like this can keep the body of Christ in check and reduce the many abuses of the prophetic."
