What Is Prophetic Worship?

What Is Prophetic Worship

What Is Prophetic Worship? Prophetic worship is a popular and highly practiced spiritual activity within the Charismatic movement. It combines spontaneous music, dance, and other art forms to present a Divinely inspired word(s), and/or message(s). The word prophetic in this context means hearing God in your heart and communicating what He says. To prophesy is to speak (or sing) by inspiration. The music and lyrics during a prophetic worship service are often referred to as the song of the Lord because it’s understood that the musicians and song leaders are under Divine inspiration to speak God’s word. The spontaneity in prophetic worship is prominent. There are no fixed programs to follow, no lyrics on the screen, and no rehearsals ahead of time. Words to the song just come to the singer, and he/she sings as led by the Holy Spirit, and the musicians play along. Whatever the Holy Spirit wants to sing is sung.

Prophetic worship services often include other Charismatic elements such as speaking in tongues, healing, deliverance, prophecies, and ecstatic utterances. Biblically, is there anything wrong with spontaneity in worship? Absolutely not. Biblically, can the Holy Spirit use our artistic ability for the glory of God? Absolutely yes. When we yield to the leadership of the Holy Spirit, He empowers us and uses us for the glory of the Lord God Almighty. Is music an important tool for the communication of God’s Word? Absolutely yes. In fact, Spirit-filled believers will be characterized by song (Ephesians 5:18–19). A link between music and the prophetic is observed in the song of Prophet Habakkuk that is included at the end of his prophecy (Habakkuk 3:1–19). Likewise, David was a prophet and a musician who even did a spontaneous dance “before the Lord” (2 Samuel 6:14).

Bible Verses About Prophetic Worship

John 4:23-24 says, “But a time is coming and is already here when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit [from the heart, the inner self] and in truth; for the Father seeks such people to be His worshipers. God is spirit [the Source of life, yet invisible to mankind], and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.
John 16:13 says, “But when He, the Spirit of Truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth [full and complete truth]. For He will not speak on His own initiative, but He will speak whatever He hears [from the Father—the message regarding the Son], and He will disclose to you what is to come [in the future].”
1 Corinthians 14:1 says, “Pursue [this] love [with eagerness, make it your goal], yet earnestly desire and cultivate the spiritual gifts [to be used by believers for the benefit of the church], but especially that you may prophesy [to foretell the future, to speak a new message from God to the people].
Revelation 19:10 says, “Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he [stopped me and] said to me, “You must not do that; I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers and sisters who have and hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God [alone]. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy [His life and teaching are the heart of prophecy].

When we worship the Lord God Almighty in Spirit and Truth through Jesus Christ, we come into His supernatural and glorious presence where all things are possible with Him.
John 14:21 says, “The person who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him [I will make Myself real to him].”
John 14:14-16 says, If you ask Me anything in My name [as My representative], I will do it. “If you [really] love Me, you will keep and obey My commandments. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you forever— 
Romans 8:26 says, “In the same way the Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groanings too deep for words.”

Biblical Facts About Prophetic Worship

When we pursue the Lord God Almighty with all our heart, soul, and strength, we’ll always discover deeper beauties about Him.
Jeremiah 33:3 says, “‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and tell you [and even show you] great and mighty things, [things which have been confined and hidden], which you do not know and understand and cannot distinguish.’” Holding to the absolute Spirit of Truth (John 16:13) and absolute Word of Truth (John 17:17), prophetic worship becomes a powerful tool to come to know and experience the Lord God in a higher spiritual dimension. As a result of the large and diverse nature of the church, there are many people who have not experienced nor even heard of prophetic worship before. On the other hand, we have people who have heard of prophetic worship but don’t believe it is Biblical while some are still having doubts even though it is a Biblical form of worship mentioned in various places throughout the Word of God.

Prophetic Worship also referred to as “Free Worship,” “Spontaneous Worship,” or “David Worship,” is a very broad loose term with a deep meaning in Christianity. Prophetic worship can be regarded as a particular strain of Holy Spirit-led, Holy Spirit-filled, Holy Spirit-prompted worship (John 4:23-24; Romans 8:26). Thus, prophetic worship is being sensitive to what the Holy Spirit is saying or doing in a precise moment and then giving voice to it. Concerning prophetic worship, the Scriptures present it as a normal part of worship that David instituted at the Temple in Israel: “Moreover, David and the commanders of the army selected for the [temple] service some of the sons of Asaph, Heman, and Jeduthun, who were to prophesy with lyres, harps, and cymbals. The list of the musicians who performed their service was as follows: …Of Jeduthun, the sons of Jeduthun: Gedaliah, Zeri, Jeshaiah, Shimei, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the direction of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with the lyre in thanksgiving and praise to the Lord”(1 Chronicles 25:1,3).
Notice that even before David’s time, the Scriptures tell us that there were bands of prophetic worshipers: “After that you will come to the hill of God where the garrison of the Philistines is; and when you come there to the city, you will meet a group of prophets coming down from the high place [of worship] with harp, tambourine, flute, and lyre before them, and they will be prophesying. Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you mightily, and you will prophesy with them, and you will be changed into another man” (1 Samuel 10:5-6). Scriptures also teach us that the prophets Elisha (2 Kings 3:11-19) and Ezekiel (Ezekiel 33:30-32) incorporated music into their prophetic ministries.

More Biblical Facts About Prophetic Worship

Philippians 3:3 says, “for we [who are born-again have been reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, set apart for His purpose and] are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory and take pride and exult in Christ Jesus and place no confidence [in what we have or who we are] in the flesh—
The Holy Spirit is the One in (or by) whom we genuinely worship the Lord God Almighty. In other words, the Holy Spirit is the One who enables and moves us to worship the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:26). Likewise, the Holy Spirit communicates the words of God (John 16:13-15) and reveals the will of God to us (1 Corinthians 2:6-16). Notice that these are elements of the prophetic. And as such, the Holy Spirit is the one who enables us to prophesy.

Today, many churches pre-select a set of worship songs for each worship service and they equally fix the number of times that they will sing through them beforehand. This creates a rigid, structured framework for worship services with the hope that participants will be able to project heartfelt meaning into the lyrics which are presented to them. In contrast, “Free Worship” (out of which prophetic worship occasionally arises) has no rigid framework; rather, music becomes a backdrop for the people to sing their own, new songs which arise out of their hearts unto the Lord God. The Scriptures exhort us to: “Sing to the LORD a new song…” (Psalm 96:1). In simple terms, Free Worship is singing “a new song” unto the Lord God spontaneously.
In Matthew 12:34, Jesus says, “For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.” In essence, while the “traditional” style of worship seeks to project the heart into what the mouth is already speaking (singing), free worship permeates the heart to overflow with its own song and words. Ephesians 5:19-20 says, “Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The Pitfall and how to Escape

In Christianity, one potential pitfall to the “traditional” style of worship is that if the lyrics fail to engage the hearts of the worshipers, all the words they sing become vain babbling. Matthew 6:7 says, “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words.” When the hearts of the worshipers are not engaged, worship becomes an empty religious ritual in which the Lord God is not present and in which He is not pleased. Isaiah 29:13 says, “Then the Lord said, “Because this nation approaches [Me only] with their words And honors Me [only] with their lip service, But they remove their hearts far from Me, And their reverence for Me is a tradition that is learned by rote [without any regard for its meaning],
When David established worship ministry in Israel, he incorporated both the “traditional” style of worship by singing set songs (1 Chronicles 16) as well as prophetic worship (1 Chronicles 25). As a matter of fact, in addition to being Prophetic, Jesus Christ Himself also sang set hymns (Matthew 26:30).

In the Old Testament, many of the Psalms are prophetic in nature and most likely arose out of times of free, prophetic worship. David is popularly regarded as the most prominent Biblical example of a “free worshiper” and a “prophetic worshiper.” In Psalm 144:9-10, David sang a “new song” which overflowed from a grateful heart over what the Lord God was personally accomplishing in his life at that time: I will sing a new song to You, O God; “Upon a harp of ten strings I will sing praises to You, Who gives salvation to kings, Who sets David His servant free from the evil sword.” This portrays the idea of “free worship.
Generally, during prayers, we just pour out our hearts to God instead of exclusively praying set prayers. If we’ve embraced this approach in prayer then why not make use of the same approach in worship? Take note that it’s not about the outward form of our worship; it’s about the heart for, “The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7).

A Brief Presentation of the Prophetic

1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 says, “Do not quench [subdue, or be unresponsive to the working and guidance of] the [Holy] Spirit. Do not scorn or reject gifts of prophecy or prophecies [spoken revelations—words of instruction or exhortation or warning]. But test all things carefully [so you can recognize what is good]. Hold firmly to that which is good. Abstain from every form of evil [withdraw and keep away from it].
The Hebrew word for “prophesying” is “naba” which has the following meaning and definition: “נָבָא nâbâʼ, naw-baw’; a primitive root; to prophesy, i.e. speak (or sing) by inspiration (in prediction or simple discourse):—prophesy(-ing), make self a prophet(Strong’s H5012). In the context of prophetic worship, this Hebrew word is seen in 1 Chronicles 25:1. It means, “…to cause to bubble up, hence to pour forth words abundantly, as is done with those who speak with ardour or divine emotion of mind”. Notice that this goes in line with prophetic worship viewed as Holy Spirit-led and inspired worship. That’s, the Holy Spirit causes praise and worship to bubble up and overflow out of our hearts and from our lips unto the Lord God.

Prophetic words usually come forth within the setting of prophetic worship. As prophecy comes forth it is not always ‘worship” by the strictest definition. Rather, in a surrounding of “prophetic worship,” worship can be the overall backdrop while the gift of prophecy begins to operate mightily. These prophecies are “threads” which are spoken or sung into the overall tapestry of worship, which may include praise, adoration, thanksgiving, exaltation, and proclamation. Most often, prophetic words during prophetic worship are either direct quotations of Scripture, paraphrased Scripture, or small phrases which allude to Scripture. Although genuine prophecy may not always be a direct quotation of Scripture, it will never contradict Scripture.

More Prophetic Facts

Genuine prophetic words are spoken as specific “words in season” and as such carry the dynamic, life-giving power of the quickened word of God.
Likewise, the living and active word of God (such as spoken in prophecy) never fails to transform people (Isaiah 55:10-11). Wherever the Holy Spirit is present, so is His fruit (Galatians 5:22-23) as well as His ministry to glorify Jesus Christ (John 16:14), to actively guide us into all truth (John 16:13), and to transform our characters to be Christlike (Romans 8:29). In the same way genuine prophecy carries the living and active power of the Word of God, so also the genuine works of the Holy Spirit (who distributes prophetic words) will be clearly evidenced by the fruit it bears in us. The Bible is the standard for Christian living. The Christian standard has a two-fold nature: the Written Word (the Bible) and the Living Word, Jesus Christ (John 1:1-14; Revelation 19:10).

The Word of God is our “Field Guide” which helps us identify different spirits by their fruits. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are fruits of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). We know that one of the fruits of the Spirit is self-control and that Scripture says “…the spirits of prophets are subject to the control of prophets. For God is not a God of disorder but of peace” (1 Corinthians 14:31-32). And as such, when the Holy Spirit brings forth prophetic words through His people, though they may be spoken with “ardour or divine emotion of mind,” they will never be uncontrollable or cause the speaker or the listeners to lose control. Note that if it’s a genuine prophecy specifically meant for you, although not always instantaneously, it will lead to the following effects:
1 Corinthians 14:3 – “But [on the other hand] the one who prophesies speaks to people for edification [to promote their spiritual growth] and [speaks words of] encouragement [to uphold and advise them concerning the matters of God] and [speaks words of] consolation [to compassionately comfort them].”
1 Corinthians 14:24-25 – “But if all prophesy [foretelling the future, speaking a new message from God to the people], and an unbeliever or outsider comes in, he is convicted [of his sins] by all, and he is called to account by all [because he can understand what is being said]; the secrets of his heart are laid bare. And so, falling on his face, he will worship God, declaring that God is really among you.
Hebrews 4:12-13 – “For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart. And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, and revealed to the eyes of Him with whom we have to give account.
Jeremiah 23:29 – “Is not My word like fire [that consumes all that cannot endure the test]?” says the Lord, “and like a hammer that breaks the [most stubborn] rock [in pieces]?
