There is a difference in being a prophet and being able to prophesy. Paul says, not all are prophets, but I would that you all prophesy. NEW Testament prophesy is giving out a good word or words that come out of your spirit that you have heard from the Holy spirit. In a sense you speak “for God.” Prophesy should edify, build up, encourage and usually is for the future not always for this moment.
OLD Testament Prophets were often angry and disturbed by their world at large, and the local sins of the people. They usually foretold of punishment and doom that would come unless the people repented and served the True God.
We must prophesy from the NEW Covenant where God desires that our words bring peace, comfort and not turmoil. We know in part and prophesy in part. Although God does reveal his knowing, by other gifts; “words of knowledge” about the past and/or future, or “words of wisdom,” for the present of future, simple prophesy is different.
NEW Testament prophesy is to build up the body and to also gently encourage those persons with out Jesus to turn to the knowledge of Christ as Lord.
I spent five days under anointed teachers who expounded the Word of God and also shared many of their personal experiences. Kris Vallotton was the main speaker and you might be interested in subscribing to his blog to hear direct from him. http://krisvallotton.com/blog/

Our registration fee included several books, and 5 days of ministry, including practice using your gifts and connecting with others. The thrust was to develop a Kingdom Culture with the Spiritual gifts in evidence.
Naturally, I came away with other books, and a DVD by Daniel McCollam from
