New Testament prophecy is for the purpose of edification, exhortation and comfort. It is a wonderful Spiritual gift. It is not for the purpose of fortune-telling or promoting someone's personal agenda, though. New Testament prophecy is from the loving heart of God and seeks to inspire people to walk in his will and ways. Don't be duped by the false visions and fantastic claims of charlatans and self-appointed prophets who presume to speak for God but do not have his Spirit. I have recently encountered some who have promoted all kinds of foolishness in the name of prophecy. However, to prophesy is to speak the mind of God with the heart of God. Anything other than this goal is fleshly at best and demonic at worst. Ask God for discernment and confirmation before receiving questionable prophetic words into your spirit, and certainly dismiss anything that is inconsistent with the written Word of God!
