Stacey Campbell believed that supernatural experiences had ceased with the early Church. Yet several years ago, she found herself at a prayer meetng shaking, speaking in tongues and giving prophecy. She was overcome by the Holy Spirit. Since that time she has been on a journey to understand and use her gifts well. In Ecstatic Prophecy she shares what she's learned about this unusual gift--it's roots in the Bible and Church History, how to discern true from false prophecy, and more. You'll grow in your faith as you learn how God wishes to bless His people with His presence today.
Ecstatic prophecy is a form of prophecy in which the prophet is completely overtaken by the Holy Spirit--body, soul, and spirit--and prophesies almost as an oracle. In Ecstatic Prophecy, Stacey Campbell, a respected teacher and regular and high-profile recipient of this gift, explains the ins and outs of this remarkable mode of prophecy. She takes readers through biblical and early church examples of ecstatic prophecy and uncovers the history of its occurrence until modern times. She also examines how those with this gift can mature in it, avoid deception by testing spirits, and use this method of prophesying to grow closer to God and to reveal Jesus.
This unique book will be compelling to anyone who follows prophetic literature and movements, as well as to those who may be experiencing ecstatic prophecy without understanding it.
