Q2. Class 5:
Prophetic Activations Pt.2 & Words of Knowledge Pt. 1

Session 1 Video: Prophetic Activations Pt. 2

Session 2 Video: Words of Knowledge Pt. 1

Go after words of knowledge this week with people that you come into contact with (waitress, barber, cashier, stranger, etc) and go through your prophetic process in regard to words of knowledge. The goal is to get measurable data on how well you're hearing God's voice for words of knowledge and growing in your faith to hear without taking too big of risks. This will also help us connect and invest in people! Direction: Ask God to give you three details about family, education/work background, or dreams. Once you have them, ask open questions to confirm like:
- Tell me about your family. Are you married, have any kids?
- What did you study in college? What jobs have you done before this?
- What dreams or desires do you have for your life?
If your revelation is accurate, take the opportunity to prophesy into their life (without being weird) and
bless them.
Journal your experience and be ready to share.

From what you've learned in the words of knowledge sessions, take a further step this week and step out in faith to minister to someone through words of knowledge.

Q2. Class 7:
Prophetic Declarations & Corporate Prophecy

Session 1 Video: Increased Risk Taking

Session 2 Video: Prophetic Refinement

God’s wisdom is evident throughout scripture. Looking at the life of heroes in the Bible, it is clear that God provides coaching to those that seek him. Spend time this week and ask God to reveal new wisdom from Scripture for you or for someone in your life who has a heart for God but is unsure what their next step is. Journal your experience of how you came to know God’s presence on the passage, what the passage itself was, who you shared it with, and how it was received.
