To another prophecy; 1 Corinthians 12:10
The gift of prophecy functions as an anointing to edify, exhort, and comfort the church. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort (I Corinthians 14:3). This is different from the office of the prophet established by Jesus in the fivefold ministry of the church as shown in Ephesians 4:11- (And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;).
The believer may be given this gift by the Spirit to bring forth a message that would edify and comfort the body of Christ and yet may not function in the office of a prophet. For example, King Saul functioned in this gift – in the company of prophets, he prophesied, although he wasn’t a prophet (I Samuel 10: 10-11).
In 1 Corinthians 14:3, Paul tells us the importance of this gift (But I would rather have you prophesy. He who prophesies is greater than one who speaks in tongues,) therefore desire the gift of prophecy.
