Lesson 11: Prophetic Ministry Versus Prophetic Office

Lecturer: Apostle Colette Toach

Based on Chapter 09 of Prophetic Boot Camp by Apostle Colette Toach

Study Note:

Last time I told you a little bit about what prophetic training is about. It is MORE than just...

  • Being prophesied over
  • Having a desire to be a prophet
  • Needing to be a prophet
  • HOPING to be a prophet
  • Looking or even acting like a prophet

It involves a clear cut time of preparation and training. You can see very clearly when someone is in prophetic office.

If you have read the Practical Prophetic Ministry book, then complete the following statement for me:

"
A Ministry is what you DO, being in office is what you ____?"

Anyone having read the book or having studied with us should know the answer to that. It really defines the difference so perfectly!

So what is being in prophetic office all about then? how does it differ to just functioning in prophetic ministry. Obviously I cannot give you all the details without re-writing my book, so you will have to refer to the text of PPM for that. Let me give you just a few points here that should solidify what you have already read!

Facts 1 - 5

Fact 1: Appointment

You are not in prophetic office until you have been appointed by the laying on of hands by a prophet or apostle.

Fact 2: It Is About Authority.

There is a distinct authority that a prophet who stands in office holds. The authority to build up and tear down, to plant and to root up. This is why we take such care in instructing and training our prophets - what an awesome responsibility!

Fact 3: Less Prophecy, More Decree

It is easy to spot those still in prophetic ministry - they are the ones giving the prophetic words in church and to individuals. When you stand in office, you will find that you prophecy less and decree more.

Fact 4: Steady As A Rock.

Pendulum swingers are still in prophetic ministry. A prophet in office is dependable, a strong leader and is not swayed by emotion (a result of many deaths and template smashing chisel strokes to the flesh!)

Fact 5: Ministry To Church Universal.

A prophet in office is not restricted to the local church but ministers to the church universal.

If you have read the Prophetic Key book as advertised in a previous lesson, fill in the gaps of this sentence:

What makes the troops obey a commander and not that little private (who might even have a better idea)? The answer is quite simple... it is __________________.

I Want to End With a Key Point

Whether someone is in prophetic ministry or prophetic office is not about how much they flow in the gifts.

Any believer can do that. When I train the prophets I assess by the authority they carry and by revelation from the Holy Spirit. NEVER forget that the prophetic office is a placement by the Holy Spirit and not something that you walk into without knowing it.

Understanding this gives you a goal to head towards and a hope to hold on to!
