Many people do not understand revelatory giftings and callings. In fact, the majority would mock a person claiming to have a revelatory calling. Not for any good reason, mind you. But mostly because we fear what we do not understand. And we fear what we cannot control.
Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
2/3 of the Bible involves revelatory giftings, callings, or events. God speaks to men, angels appear to men, burning bushes that speak, dreams of destiny, dreams of world events, God speaking to men, visions, prophecies, more dreams, more prophecies, talking donkies, more of God speaking to men, armies of angels, more angels, more dreams, more visions, more prophecies, knowing the impossible, etc. It goes on and on.
Amazing, how some Christians can read a Bible full of revelatory gifted people and God speaking to men and people experiencing divine revelation, and yet they have chosen to believe that all manners of divine revelation ceased when the last apostle died.
I am writing to the wrong audience. I realize that. If you are reading this, there’s an 80% chance it’s because we’re friends on Twitter. And if so, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about. I get that. Good thing this is my blog and I don’t have to play by any rules.
If, however, you’d like to read more about revelatory giftings and callings, I recommend the following books:
Jack Deere, Surprised By the Voice of God
Gary Wiens, Come to Papa
R Loren Sandford, Understanding Prophetic People
Jim Goll, The Seer
These are three books written by men who strongly adhere to the Bible as the foundation and standard by which all revelatory messages/insights should be measured against. Read those books in that order, as that will probably help you to understand the flow of information.
