Prophecy is to be spoken over God’s people, while God’s word is to be sowed as a seed into their heart. Prophecy is like the rising of the clouds and the falling of rain subsequently… But without proper tilling of the ground of the people’s heart and the breaking up of the fallow ground of their heart, via the word of God (thorough and continual teachings of God’s word), there shall be no particular harvest of that spoken prophecy, nor any positively tangible manifestation to that effect.
As a matter of truth, you can only expect more wild weeds to grow in their hearts rather, just as rain will do to an uncultivated farmable ground. Meaning, deterioration may even set in instead.
Please, do not just prophesy over God’s people, you need to also sit them down and thoroughly teach them God’s word, that the prophecy may abundantly produce results. Teach God’s people how to war a good warfare with God’s word on their own, for every prophecy to have an absolute fruition in them. More time should be dedicated to teaching and explaining God’s word to God’s people, for greater and ever increasing harvests. Prophecy without teachings of God’s word is like a car without engine. It won’t do much, won’t make much difference in the people’s life. Understanding God’s word helps a man to properly war a good warfare with the given prophecies of God to that man.
