Practical Training for Cultivating a Prophetic Spirit
In his book “Prophetic Like Jesus – Releasing God’s Heart to Your World.”
Jeff Eggers presents a progressive plan for developing the basic principles of a prophetic heart and ministry
The book is divided into four sections. Section One defines the gift of prophecy, its simplicity, and the awe and wonder of the prophetic word. Section Two introduces foundational basics on how to cultivate a prophetic spirit and how to prophecy. Section Three explores “the gift of prophecy” from the perspective of building the church with a servant’s heart using the teachings of 1 Corinthians, chapters 12, 13, and 14 as for the key points in his instruction. Section Four addresses the pastor’s role in leading a prophetic people in a five-fold ministry; while developing a prophetic culture.
“Prophetic Like Jesus – Releasing God’s Heart to Your World” is more than a book for casual reading. The pages are filled with Biblical principles, Scriptural reference, and practical pointers for allowing the Lord to work out His Word in and through His followers. The “Getting Plugged In” questions and exercises are readily adaptable for interactive small groups, Bible study classes, or for individual study, contemplation application, and implementation.
This is a book for every Christian who is “thirsting” for a deeper revelation of the heart of God; desirous of growing into a mature usage of their prophetic gifting.
