God is currently putting His finger on a prophetic thread in our church. By that I don;t mean there are a bunch of people seeing into the future. A prophetic work of God in a church is a work in which God begins to give a community a Divine direction and those same people begin to obey and carry out the plans of God for their community. That is what is happening at Cornerstone right now, a prophetic move. there is a price to pay for this wonderful adventure we are on and we as a church community are currently in the process of considering if the call is worth answering. My answer is “Yes”! Others though are on the fence.
Here are some things I gleaned from our lead pastor’s sermon this last Sunday.
Accuracy in the prophetic requires a purification of the secret life. It requires a strengthening of integrity.
Accuracy in the prophetic requires a love for the Word of God, the Bible.
Accuracy in the prophetic requires a non-judgmental spirit.

Accuracy in the prophetic requires us to love like Jesus loved.
Accuracy in the prophetic requires that we not be ashamed of our faith.
Accuracy in the prophetic requires that we stop insisting on comfort. We have to give up our carnal ways and pleasures. We have to be willing to be inconvenienced.
