It has been said that all of the ministries in the church are at their core, pastoral. By that it could be assumed that all of the ministries are people oriented and not task oriented.
That may be true for many, but not necessarily the experience of all! The prophetic person has a care and desire for the well being of the Church and individuals that will manifest itself clearly by the expressions of what they share with people in terms of ministry.
God cares very much about His creation. It is more than care. God loves us and it is reflected in what He has done for us and what He is doing. More than that, it is revealed in one of His dazzling attributes; God IS love.
So, in reporting God’s heart, love, plan and agenda for the individual or the Church there is the express desire to see God’s people turn to Him in warm-hearted, enthusiastic response. Where people have turned aside because of difficult situations or circumstance the encouragement of the prophetic is to turn the heart back to God, not to give up hope!

Only truth, God’s truth, not the philosophies of men, changes men’s hearts. Our passion for the truth has also to be tempered by our God-given love for one another. The truth shall make people free, not lay heavy burdens on them. That is where things move from liberating truth to the oppression of legalism.
Authentic prophetic ministry has a real passion for seeing people of every age, set free from the tyranny and oppression of the Pharaoh of life, but the starting place is in the battle ground of turning hearts and captive minds to God in faith, and expectation.
This is the call of the day in our churches across the United Kingdom.
God is looking for us to have real faith in Him, looking to Him, Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith. It is time that we wholeheartedly turned to God again. That was wholeheartedness is significant of every revival. The Living Christ and His eternal Word was the magnificent obsession of the Church.
It is our personal conviction that there is a huge, huge outpouring of the Holy Spirit coming, much of it starts with hearts turning afresh to God, away from the false wisdom and ‘management speak’ of this world.
Never give up on God – He is faithful to His Word forever.
Back to the Bible, back to faith in the omnipotent God.
God is good.
