Prophesy is the supernatural enabling by the Spirit of God to hear His voice and deliver to someone else, or act on what He is saying.
The difference between psychics and prophets is their source. Prophets get their information and revelation directly from the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. Biblical prophecy is speaking the words of God by the unction of the Holy Spirit.
Prophecy Is Needed On The Mission Field
First, in order to know where you are going and what you need to do, you must hear God's direction. It may be an impression on your heart and/or a word given by other Brothers and Sisters in Christ.
Second, having an understanding on what it means to be prophetic, versus being a prophet must also be understood.
Third, there might be people on your team who are more seasoned in hearing God's voice, but they should not be the only one that the team depends on when knowing what God is saying.
Yes, We All Can Hear God's Voice
There are even those in Christian circles who find it incredulous to think that we can hear the voice of God speaking to us outside of reading the scriptures. It is often forgotten that a person cannot enter a relationship with God without responding to his call for repentance from our sins and accepting his requirement for lordship in our lives. Romans 10:17 clearly states that faith comes by hearing the message spoken by Christ. The word used here is the Greek term "rhema", which literally describes it as something spoken!
