In this stage, there are visible signs that we are operating in the spiritual gift of prophecy — we received the anointing of God. In this stage, we are also seeing fruit — this results in honoring God, helping people, and building the church. Spiritual oversight is now about acknowledging the gift (Acts 19:6). This phase is when your prophetic gift begins to manifest for the first time. Some signs you are in the emerging stage are:
- You may have a season of heightened awareness of God’s presence
- You find you are praying prophetically
- You are receiving supernatural insights that could only come from God
- The exercise or your prophetic gift may be accompanied by unusual manifestations
You may experience a ‘honeymoon stage,’ during which you frequently use the gift. On the other hand, there may be very few manifestations and your prophetic gift develops slowly over a period of time. Remember, there is no “one-size-fits-all” in the Kingdom of God. We are all unique and different and the development and manifestations of our spiritual gifts will be unique to us (1 Cor 12:4-6). It is important that you don’t ever believe that just because you’ve seen miracles happen through prophecies you have given, that you have “got it all together.” The spirit of pride is the downfall of every prophet.
