Q&A on New Covenant Prophets and Personal Prophecy

Fortunetelling and Prophecy

Is receiving a prophetic word fortunetelling?

Certainly not. The ministry of the prophet is both Old Testament and New Testament. Prophets in the New and Old Testaments were not fortunetellers and neither are today’s New Covenant prophets. God continues to speak through prophets as He has always done. Christian prophets are not telling fortunes. They are speaking the word of the Lord as it is given to them by the Holy Spirit in the same way that New Covenant prophets did in the New Testament. The Apostle Peter says this of prophecy:

For no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. (2 Peter 1:21)

Prophecy and New Covenant prophets are God’s ideas. We didn’t invent prophets, God did. Christian people who believe in New Covenant prophets are in a strong harmony with the New Testament. We also take it seriously that Christ taught that prophets would be judged by their fruit not their gifts. Christ said:

"Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit; but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will know them by their fruits." (Matthew 7:15-20)

We understand “fruit” to mean “character” and the related “outcome of their character.” The prophets that we associate with are all very focused on Christ, the Bible and preach the Good News. They are “born again” believers of good Christian character and beliefs. We would never invite someone who had “bad fruit.” We do know that this will not satisfy those who are being used of the devil to accuse.

Christ Himself was criticized by the Pharisees as doing supernatural deeds by the power of the devil. His response was:

"And if a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but he is finished!" (Mark 3:24-26)

We make a similar response. If prophecy encourages, exhorts, comforts and directs believers in a godly way but is coming from the devil, then the devil has lost his mind and is destroying his own kingdom. If prophecy is coming from “born again” people who believe that Christ is the light of the world, love the Scriptures and are committed to the Church and yet is coming from the devil, it does appear that the devil has risen up against himself. No! This is the good word of God coming through New Covenant prophets to encourage, exhort and comfort His children.

How does prophecy differ from fortunetelling? Prophecy comes through committed and gifted believers. True prophecy does not contradict the New Testament. Christian prophets are committed to Christ and the Good News. They would be against witchcraft in all its forms. Christian prophets speak as the Spirit gives them utterance.

Fortunetelling does not come from committed and gifted believers. Fortunetelling will contradict the New Testament. Fortunetellers “read” people. They give “readings.” They are not ministering prophecy through the Holy Spirit but getting things likely from demonic activity. They are not likely to be against witchcraft.

Finally, what is the true nature of fortunetelling? The fortuneteller is obviously a demonic counterfeit of the Christian prophet that is designed to confuse people about the Christian prophet and discredit this amazingly wonderful ministry. Don’t fall for the counterfeit. Don’t fall for a false accusation. Hold fast to what the New Testament teaches. Stay open to prophecy coming from godly Christian prophets and other believers.

Is Personal Prophecy Biblical?

Are personal prophecies from a modern Christian prophet biblical? Can a prophet prophesy “on demand?”

We recognize that there are those Christians who do not believe that God speaks through prophets today despite what the New Testament says. We can only point out that they believe a doctrine that keeps them from believing the New Testament entirely. So, we write this answer from the Scriptures for those who believe that all the New Testament is entirely for today.

The Old Testament prophets spoke prophecy to individuals, families, tribes and the nation of Israel and even the foreign nations and foreign individuals. We would expect the New Covenant prophet to do all that and more. It was common among the Jews in the Old Testament to seek a personal prophecy from a prophet. So obviously, the prophets ministered to individuals as they came expecting to hear the Lord speak through the prophet. For instance, the prophet Gad spoke personal prophecy to King David often as did other prophets:

When David arose in the morning, the word of the LORD came to the prophet Gad, David's seer, saying, "Go and speak to David, 'Thus the LORD says, "I am offering you three things; choose for yourself one of them, which I may do to you."'" (2 Samuel 24:11-12)

Anyone could seek out a prophet and receive a word from the Lord. For instance, this passage tells us that “when a man went to inquire of God” that he would “go to the seer (prophet).” The book of First Samuel says:

(Formerly in Israel, when a man went to inquire of God, he used to say, "Come, and let us go to the seer"; for he who is called a prophet now was formerly called a seer.) Then Saul said to his servant, "Well said; come, let us go." So they went to the city where the man of God was. (1 Samuel 9:9-10)

The story continues beyond these verses but these two verses make it clear that seeking a prophet/seer for personal prophecy was very common in ancient Israel. We provide a way to do that online. We have Christian people coming to a Christian prophet online for a personal prophecy.

The Lord Jesus also gave personal prophecies to His disciples. Some of them are recorded. He gave both Peter and Judas specific prophetic words about their particular futures that came to pass. He gave His disciple Nathanael a very personal prophetic word when He first met him. Christ had already seen him by revelation. Christ told him in this word that he would see greater things. Here it is:

Jesus saw Nathanael coming to Him, and said of him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!" Nathanael said to Him, "How do You know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you." Nathanael answered Him, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel. "Jesus answered and said to him, "Because I said to you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these." (John 1:47-50)

The Apostle Paul in one of his writings to Timothy reminded Timothy twice that he had received important personal prophecies.

This command I entrust to you, Timothy, my son, in accordance with the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may fight the good fight, (1Timothy 1:18)

…and in the same letter…

Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you, which was bestowed upon you through prophetic utterance with the laying on of hands by the presbytery. (1Timothy 4:14)

Paul told Timothy that he could “fight the good fight” on the basis on these prophecies. Paul told Timothy that he had also received a spiritual gift through prophecy. Any reasonable believer should see that personal prophecy is highly valuable and desirable.

Prophecy on Demand

There are some older Pentecostal groups that may be under the false impression that a prophet cannot prophesy to everyone. These folks are generally under the impression that they have to wait for a prophecy to come before speaking. If you believe that, then it will happen that way. However, any prophet can prophesy to everyone if they believe that they can. They can open their mouths in faith and will be able to speak the word of the Lord to anyone. They can prophesy according to the proportion of their faith. They, like the Old Testament prophet, can speak prophecy "on demand."

In Second Kings chapter 3, three kings found themselves in a difficult situation and sought out the prophet Elisha for guidance. It is clear from this passage, that they believed that Elisha could speak prophecy "on demand."

But Jehoshaphat asked, “Is there no prophet of the Lord here, that we may inquire of the Lord through him?” An officer of the king of Israel answered, “Elisha son of Shaphat is here. He used to pour water on the hands of Elijah.” Jehoshaphat said, “The word of the Lord is with him.” So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him. ...Elisha said, “As surely as the Lord Almighty lives, whom I serve, if I did not have respect for the presence of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you or even notice you.” (2 Kings 3:11-12,14)

Despite Elisha's disrespect for the King of Israel, he did give them a prophetic word and it was "on demand." Elisha did not have the word of the Lord until after they had asked him. In other words, he prophesied to them “on demand.”

The Apostle Paul writes:

And since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let each exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; (Romans 12:6)

A Christian prophet can speak prophecy "on demand" just like the Old Testament prophets. He does it according to the proportion of his faith. He can prophesy "on demand" if he believes that he can.

If there are examples of a personal prophecy recorded in the New Testament then that means that there were other prophets giving personal prophecy that were not recorded. Thankfully, there are examples of prophets and others in ministry giving personal prophetic words to individuals in the New Testament.

A Personal Prophecy to the Apostle Paul through the New Covenant Prophet Agabus.

Luke wrote about New Covenant prophets interacting with other believers. He writes about the interaction of the New Covenant Prophet Agabus and the Apostle Paul. Paul receives a personal prophecy from Agabus:

And as we were staying there for some days, a certain prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. And coming to us, he took Paul's belt and bound his own feet and hands, and said, "This is what the Holy Spirit says: 'In this way the Jews at Jerusalem will bind the man who owns this belt and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.'" (Acts 21:10-11)

This is clearly a personal prophecy to Paul. There had to be many other personal prophecies that were not recorded. Prophets and personal prophecy were common in the Early Church. This passage mentions that among the leaders at Antioch that some of them were prophets.

Now there were at Antioch, in the church that was there, prophets and teachers: Barnabas, and Simeon who was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. And while they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them." (Acts 13:1-2)

A very personal word about the ministries of Barnabus and Saul came to them and was likely spoken from one of the prophets present in this group of leaders.

Not only did the Apostle Paul receive personal prophetic utterance but he also spoke prophecies. This is a corrective personal prophecy to a false prophet from the Apostle Paul: Luke writes:

But Saul, who was also known as Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, fixed his gaze upon him, and said, "You who are full of all deceit and fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to make crooked the straight ways of the Lord? And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind and not see the sun for a time." And immediately a mist and a darkness fell upon him, and he went about seeking those who would lead him by the hand. (Acts 13:9-11)

In Paul’s instruction to the Church concerning spiritual gifts, he describes the effect of personal prophecies on an unbeliever as the secrets of his heart are revealed. Paul writes:

But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an ungifted man enters, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all; the secrets of his heart are disclosed; and so he will fall on his face and worship God, declaring that God is certainly among you. (1 Corinthians 14:24-25)

Two or three prophets were expected to speak at every Christian meeting according to Paul. This was likely to be personal prophecy. (Where does the Bible say that it can’t be personal prophecy to other Christians?)

Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said (1Corinthians 14:29; see also 14:32, 37).

Paul also relates the expected characteristics of personal prophecy to other Christians.

But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation. (1 Corinthians 14:3)

In general, we would expect that prophecy to other believers would build them up, encourage and comfort them. This is exactly what we see when mature Christian prophets minister among us.


What is a New Covenant prophet?

There are many within the Church who have not understood that there is a New Testament expression of this Old Testament ministry. The Old Testament ministry is clearly revealed, as explained previously, and therefore the New Testament does very little to expound this ministry to us as we would otherwise expect. However, the Christian prophet is revealed in passages like those found in the Book of Acts. For example, prophets associated with the church at Jerusalem visited and ministered at the church at Antioch.

During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch (Acts 11:27).

This was the time that Paul and Barnabas were in Antioch. The passage tells us that one of these prophets, Agabus, predicted a famine that took place during the reign of Caesar Claudius. It is certain that Paul and Barnabas knew Agabus personally. We will relate more about Agabus later. These prophets were not the only ones known to the church at Antioch. In Acts 13, a possible listing of the elders of the church of Antioch, we learn that there were also prophets there. Because of the way this verse is constructed, it is impossible to say which persons were prophets and which were teachers. There must have been at least two of each if we are going to take the plural forms of each word seriously.

In the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen (who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch) and Saul (Acts 13:1).

We also learn of two more prophets, Judas and Silas, who were involved in ministry along with Paul and Barnabas. These men were sent with Paul and Barnabas as representatives of the apostles and elders at Jerusalem to be witnesses of the decision of this Council addressing the controversy over the relationship of the Law of Moses and the Gentile believers. Again, Paul is interacting with those who have prophetic calls on their lives.

Judas and Silas, who themselves were prophets said much to encourage and strengthen the brothers. (Acts 15:32)

If we assume there were at least two prophets present in each of the passages above where the plural is used, then we can count a minimum of six prophets from these passages alone. However, we must acknowledge that there must have been many more from the following passages found in Paul’s writings. From the testimony of Scripture we can determine that the ministry of the Christian prophet was not rare for the early Church, and that it was considered as second only to the apostolic ministry. Paul writes:

And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? (1 Corinthians 12:28-29)

Paul also lists this ministry gift as second to apostles in the Book of Ephesians:

It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers (Ephesians 4:11).

Paul indicates that he expected there would be more than one prophet in any gathering of God’s people. In this case, two or three prophets were to speak and other prophets were to judge what was spoken. If we do some math from this passage, adding the prophets speaking (“two or three”) to the “others” judging (meaning at least two), we find the sum to be at least four or five prophets in each local church.

Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said (1Corinthians 14:29; see also 14:32,37).

Paul in these passages also tells us that the Christian prophet is second to the apostle. The indication of “second” does not reveal the relationship between these first and second ministries; however, the Word of God is not silent concerning this relationship. In Ephesians Paul places these ministries together as the foundation of the Church. There is no question that he is referring to the Christian prophet rather than the Old Testament prophet because he says that both apostle and prophet are the foundation with Christ Jesus as Cornerstone.

If Paul were referring to the Old Testament prophet rather than the New Testament prophet, then he could not tell us that Jesus Christ was the cornerstone of this foundation. The Church is built upon the foundation of Christ. The Old Testament prophet is not part of the Church and therefore is not built upon the cornerstone of Christ.

[God’s household is] built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the chief cornerstone (Ephesians 2:20).

Paul places these ministries together again as those that are revelational by the Holy Spirit. Paul tells us that God is now revealing His mysteries to prophets, clearly indicating that he is speaking about Christian prophets.

...the mystery of Christ, which was not made known to men in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God’s holy apostles and prophets (Ephesians 3:4-5).

Trusting that these passages are enough to establish that the New Testament reveals the Christian prophet to be an expected and welcomed function of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, we will now review what the Old Testament reveals about the actual functions of this important ministry.

Functions of the Prophet

Contrary to popular belief, there were generally many prophets living in Israel at the same time. Of course, there were always considerably fewer than the thousands of priests. Not all of God’s prophets were reliable or faithful to God, despite their calling. For the most part, the Old Testament concentrates on the faithful prophets of the Lord, but it does not neglect to tell us of those who were less than pleasing to God. In passages where God speaks correction to His prophets, there is much to be learned about the prophetic role. We will look at some of these corrections. The following are the ministry functions of the prophets.

The Ministry of Revelation

Probably the most essential ministry function of the prophet is to stand in the council of the Lord. This is a ministry of revelation that hears and sees what the Lord is saying for a particular situation, nation, city, person, or persons. All other prophetic ministry functions are related to and flow from this one. This is the characteristic that makes a prophet a prophet. Jeremiah wrote:

But which of them has stood in the council of the Lord to see or to hear His word? Who has listened and heard His word? See, the storm of the Lord will burst out in wrath, a whirlwind swirling down on the heads of the wicked. The anger of the Lord will not turn back until He fully accomplishes the purposes of His heart. In days to come you will understand it clearly. I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied. But if they had stood in My council, they would have proclaimed My words to My people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds (Jeremiah 23:18-22).

This is clearly correction from God to those who are prophets, but were not sent by God with a message. However, within this passage we learn much about the role of the true prophet. He stands in the council of the Lord and proclaims God’s word to His people. In saying this, there are those who would confuse the issue by improperly substituting preaching for prophecy.

Prophecy Is Not Preaching

There are some who have mistranslated and misunderstood this as referring to the preaching ministry. Most mature prophets are also preachers, but not all modern Christian prophets preach. Some may only function in the ministry of revelation and prophecy. Not all preachers are prophets, nor do they all stand in the council of the Lord as a regular part of their ministry. Preaching is not necessarily prophetic. It can instruct, encourage, and exhort without ever moving into a prophetic flow and gifting. The prophet will bring to the circumstance the specific word of God for the moment, for the individual, for the local church. This is what sets him apart from the ordinary preacher of God’s word.

Prophetic Revelation from Dreams and Visions

This prophetic revelation can come in the form of a vision or dream. Although God may speak to all His servants through dreams and visions from time to time, this is an ongoing experience with the prophet.

He said, “Listen to My words: ‘When a prophet of the Lord is among you, I reveal Myself to him in visions, I speak to him in dreams’” (Numbers 12:6).

Revelation also may come often to the prophet in the form of words. The prophet of Gad regularly ministered to David in this manner. Apparently during the night or early morning, God would speak His word into the prophet’s spirit for him to deliver to King David in the morning.

Before David got up the next morning, the word of the Lord had come to Gad the prophet, David’s seer. (2 Samuel 24:11)

Other passages show this revelational ministry of the prophet. In Second Kings chapter 3, three kings found themselves in a difficult situation and sought out the prophet Elisha for guidance.

But Jehoshaphat asked, “Is there no prophet of the Lord here, that we may inquire of the Lord through him?” An officer of the king of Israel answered, “Elisha son of Shaphat is here. He used to pour water on the hands of Elijah.” Jehoshaphat said, “The word of the Lord is with him.” So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him. ...Elisha said, “As surely as the Lord Almighty lives, whom I serve, if I did not have respect for the presence of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you or even notice you.” (2 Kings 3:11-12,14)

This passage illustrates that the ministry of the prophet is primarily revelational. The three kings believed they would determine the particular will of God for their situation by consulting with the prophet Elisha. They knew the word of God was with him in a revelational sense. Elisha also gives us a description of himself in the passage in the last verse. “Whom I serve” states his relationship with God. Modern translation has obscured this passage, as well as many others. The New American Standard version translates this phrase as “before whom I stand,” which reiterates the relationship of the prophet to God. The prophet stands in the council of the Lord.

God spoke to the prophet Jeremiah about his role as a prophet. Unfortunately, the meaning of this passage is also a somewhat obscured translation of the New International Version. It says this:

Therefore this is what the Lord says: “If you repent, I will restore you that you may serve me; if you utter worthy, not worthless, words, you will be My spokesman. Let this people turn to you, but you must not turn to them. I will make you a wall to this people, a fortified wall of bronze; they will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you to rescue and save you,” declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 15:19-20)

The phrase that you may serve Me is translated, “before Me you will stand” in the New American Standard Version, which tries to approximate the most literal translation. Again, the ministry of the prophet is to stand in the council of the Lord and to utter worthy words of revelation by the Spirit.

It is possible, of course, that a person appearing to be a prophet could mislead God’s people. The passage below speaks to that problem. This is one of those passages that is instructive through the corrections that God speaks; the Lord tells us what a proper prophet should be doing in the context of His correction. The proper prophet must speak visions from the mouth of the Lord and not from his own mind.

This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord.” (Jeremiah 23:16)

It is clear that dreams and visions come from the mouth of the Lord; however, His revealed word is a higher form of revelation and is compared with dreams as grain is compared with straw. In other words, grain is of more value. Lest we think that God is condemning all prophetic utterance, visions, and dreams, a few verses later the Lord encourages those who are prophets to faithfully speak the revelational word that comes from God.

“Let the prophet who has a dream tell his dream, but let the one who has My word speak it faithfully. For what has straw to do with grain?” declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 23:28)

Prophets can also proclaim a message that the Lord has spoken and expect fulfillment of that word. Messages that predict events in a certain time or season that go unfulfilled by God become a way to measure the prophetic utterance and the prophet. However, it may not always be that simple. There were some positive prophecies that did not seem to be conditional as they were stated in the Old Testament that God did not fulfill because of the sin of the persons involved. On the other hand, there were some prophecies that were negative that God did not fulfill or delayed because of the humility and repentance of the persons involved. So the issue of fulfilled prophecy is not quite so simple, but it still remains a way to test the prophet. Nevertheless, Moses tells us to measure the prophet by measuring the fulfillment of his prophecies.

If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him. (Deuteronomy 18:22)

Prophets Reveal Other Ministries

Prophets also have a function of revealing and anointing other ministries and calling them to their ministry functions, often revealing much of their future ministry. Our earlier discussion on the anointing has already shown much of this function.

Jehu got up and went into the house. Then the prophet poured the oil on Jehu’s head and declared, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘I anoint you king over the Lord’s people Israel. You are to destroy the house of Ahab your master, and I will avenge the blood of My servants the prophets and the blood of all the Lord’s servants shed by Jezebel’” (2 Kings 9:6-7).

Prophets Issue Guidance and Warnings From God

Prophets also can issue guidance and warnings to God’s people and His other anointed servants, to wicked individuals, to cities, and to nations. Often the warning will encourage repentance and returning to the Lord.

The Lord warned Israel and Judah through all His prophets and seers: “Turn from your evil ways. Observe My commands and decrees, in accordance with the entire Law that I commanded your fathers to obey and that I delivered to you through My servants the prophets. ...until the Lord removed them from His presence, as He had warned through all His servants the prophets. So the people of Israel were taken from their homeland into exile in Assyria, and they are still there. (2 Kings 17:13,23)

Prophets often have a message of repentance, of returning to God. Sometimes they are successful in producing repentance, sometimes not.

Although the Lord sent prophets to the people to bring them back to Him, and though they testified against them, they would not listen. (2 Chronicles 24:19)

The New Testament Prophet Agabus

The prophet Agabus is the only Christian prophet described by the New Testament in any detail. The two reference to him in the Book of Acts are ten chapters apart. This implies that he had an ongoing ministry within the first-century Church. We see the ministry of revelation working in him. He clearly stood in the council of the Lord.

During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) (Acts 11:27-28)

In the second passage, ten chapters later, Agabus offers a very specific personal prophetic word of warning to Paul about future difficulties. His prophecy revealing a portion of Paul’s future was very accurate, as the rest of the Book of Acts records.

After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. Coming over to us, he took Paul’s belt, tied his own hands and feet with it and said, “The Holy Spirit says, ‘In this way the Jews of Jerusalem will bind the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.’” (Acts 21:10-11)

Two Old Testament prophetic functions of revelation and warning are found in the New Testament prophet Agabus. It is logical to conclude that all the functions of the Old Testament prophet will be found in the New Testament prophet.

There are more references in the New Testament to the New Testament prophet’s ministry that there are to the pastor, evangelist, or teacher. Paul places it in secondary importance only to the apostle, yet a high degree of confusion and ignorance remains regarding this ministry in the modern Church. This must change quickly for the sake of the Kingdom of God.

Once you've found the folder, you must extract the mp3 file. To do this, double click on the folder to open it. Inside, it should look similar to the example below, where the file named John will be named your name. The file with your name on it is the mp3 file that you need to extract.

inside the zip file

To extract the file, drag it either onto your desktop, or into any folder of your choosing. You should, then, be able to double click on that file and your default music player will play the file. You can also burn it to a disk or load it onto an mp3 player or smartphone.

How To Join A Session

Smart phones are banned from prophecy sessions. Because they only run on third party software, they are very difficult for us to troubleshoot and have very often been the cause of disruption during the sessions. Please use either a Windows or Mac OSX computer.

Download and install the client program that is appropriate to your computer. You will not need the server program, just the client program. The website where you can find these programs is http://www.ventrilo.com/download.php

After the client program has been installed you can use these quick step-by-step instructions for getting the program configured and connected into a server.

BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO SKIP ANY STEPS.
STEPS 3 AND 6 ARE CRITICAL!
MOST PROBLEMS HAPPEN WHEN SOMEONE SKIPS A STEP BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT.


  1. Start the ventrilo program. (You should have already installed it.)
  2. Click on the -> button (arrow button) that is next to the first pulldown window called User Name.
  3. Click the New button. This will open a small window where you can enter the logon name which is your REAL first name. If you don`t use your real name, there will be confusion and you may not be able to download your recording. Please don't type in anything but your first name here. Last names are not needed. Married couples may type in both first names with an & symbol between (i.e. Bob & Jane).
  4. Click the OK button.
  5. Now that you are back to the main window click on the -> button that is next to the pull-down window called Server.
  6. Click the "New" button. This will open a small window where you can enter a name that will describe the new server definition. Type in All Nations Ministries.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Click on the Hostname or IP input box and type in vent3.gameservers.com (Don't forget the two periods.)
  9. Click on the Port number input box. The program will automatically display the default port number of 3784 but change this to 4329
  10. Click on the Password input box and enter the password which is everlasting
  11. Click OK to return to the Ventrilo main window.
  12. Click Connect to establish a connection between you and the All Nations Ministries server. Do this in advance of the meeting a few days to make sure that you are set up properly. Don't wait to the last minute because we may not be available then to help you.
  13. If you hear tones in your headset or speaker and see a message that starts with "This is the All Nations..." you are logging on properly. Read that message and then close that screen. You should see your name below All Nations Ministries.
  14. To talk, press the Left Ctrl key. Let go of it when you are done talking. If you are the only one on line, you should hear some tones when you press the Left Ctrl key but there will be no one to answer you. (We have noted that for some people using a Macintosh computer, the Left Ctrl key doesn't work. You can click on Setup and change the key to something else.)
  15. You should also click on the Setup button and configure all of the different options that control Ventrilo. This is very important when it comes to controlling the microphone or input source. Once in the Setup dialog click on the Help button. Be sure to read what all of the options are and what they mean. (Don't change anything if you are unsure.) If you are having trouble, then send an email to contact@allnationsmin.org, otherwise, we'll see you online! Maranatha!
