" . . . for the testimony of YahShua is the spirit of prophecy." Revelation 19:10. Everything YahShua testifies can be also called the spirit of prophecy. Prophecy is often wrongly limited to foretelling future events. But the prophets in the Old Testament did far more than predict events. Often their ministries were far more filled with open air preaching, rebuking nations, exposing sin and reproving Yah's people. So, too, YahShua's testimony is the spirit of prophecy.
YahShua spoke of many things. He testified of His Father, His will, the Torah, Heaven, Hell, repentance, and end-time events. The entire book of Revelation is the testimony of YahShua to John. Ensuring a blessing to those who read and understand Revelation, Yahshua lays out the events which will occur in the final days of Yah's dealings with sinful mankind and the rebel angels.
The spirit of prophecy or anything remotely tied to prophecy is often shunned or ignored in many modern churches. This ought not to be. We are admonished to despise not prophesying. To do so is to despise YahShua's testimony! Do we desire to know YahShua more and more? Do we desire to be close to Him? If so, we ought to study and immerse ourselves in His testimony which is the spirit of prophecy.
I created this section on prophecy because it is a subject either ignored or completely abused. On the one hand we have churches who never bother studying prophetic things (even though roughly 2/3 of the Bible is commited to prophecy) and on the other hand we have "prophecy zealots" who are convinced and committed to assuring us that the rapture will whisk us all away from harm and we will never see a moment of persecution. Each are equally unscriptural and each are equally silly.
My hope is that this section will serve as a Scriptural starting point in helping believers explore the spirit of prophecy. All we are doing is examining the testimony of YahShua. We need not be sensational. I won't be offering any personal prophecies or any dates or even any speculations of what might happen. I simply want to deal with the testimony written down for us to help us better understand the spirit of prophecy.
