Normalization of the Apostolic
Just thirty-forty years ago, the term “prophetic” was only used to describe those things foretold in the books of Revelation and Daniel or the events leading up to Armageddon. There were a few prophetic conferences but nearly all of them were about end-time events and emphasized the rapture or mark of the Beast.
At that time the concept that “you may all prophesy” was gaining acceptance but only in a few small group settings. Public prophecy was relegated to a few bold enough to blurt out something (usually loudly) in the quiet between songs during worship and mainly of the “my children, my children” variety. Every charismatic church had one. Prophets were seen as odd, mystical types and the prophetic ministry limited to only a few. Based on an Old Testament model, prophets were seen as mystical and eccentric.
Unoffendable by Francis Frangipane“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh” (Ezek. 36:26).God has a new heart for us that cannot be offended, an “unoffendable” heart. Beloved, possessing an unoffendable heart is not an option or a luxury; it’s not a little thing. An offended heart is endanger of becoming a “heart of stone.”
