Let's say that someone gives you a prophetic word that has to do with your life, calling and mission. How long should you wait on that prophetic word? How long should you wait on any prophetic word for that matter? Truth is a prophetic word could be a now word, a tomorrow word or a next season word. It could also be for 5, 10, or 20 years down the road. Ouch!
Even so, test the words that you receive. Make sure that they line up with the word of God and most importantly that the spirit is on those words. You see, the spirit will bear witness to a prophetic word. God will confirm it, and God will not leave you confused, for God is not the author of confusion.
Blessings in the Spirit Of Christ, which is prophecy
