Joey at Car Wash West. I had been teaching on the gifts of the Holy Spirit and
was excited about the things that were going on. I began to talk to him about
the Lord, the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the gift of prophecy. I told him that
I was teaching on this gift and imparting to others the gift of prophecy. In his
mind he was objecting to what I was saying. He equated it as telling the future;
but when I mentioned that it was edification, exhortation and comfort he was
taken back and had never heard this. Then he told me that he was an Assembly
of God preacher. I can hardly believe what he was telling me. So today he calls
and says that he has been studying the subject and that I was right. He wanted
to know where I found the definition of prophecy, so I read to him first Corinthians
14:1-4. I invited him to my next teaching session.
I thought that this was quite unusual that some one going to a Baptist Church
would be instructing an Assembly of God pastor on the gift of prophesy!
