When I first wrote my book, The Voice of God in 1998, there were only a few books in print that could be considered a teaching guide for emerging prophets. John and Paula Sandford had written their cutting-edge one, The Elijah Task, and Bishop Bill Hamon came out with his Prophets and Personal Prophecy in 1987.
While we have come a long way in both the raising up of many people who prophesy, it is still difficult today to find what can be called the prophets to the nation. For years, I have made it a regular practice to ask the leaders of the nations where I preach—and I have been to more than 100 of them—"Who do the leaders of this nation recognize to give a credible, national word?" I have rarely had any of them even able to think of a name. Of course, this is not to say that they are not there, but most of them are not very visible.
With this in mind, for the last year, I have been scouring the world, trying to find any prophetic voice to gather together for a consultation. Many leaders are helping many here in the U.S. because there are a number of credible voices. Other nations such as Canada, England and Australia as well as Latin America have started roundtables of their own and, as a result, are beginning to issue prophetic words.
In 2015, at the U.S. gathering of prophets called the Apostolic Prophetic Council of Prophets Elders, which was formed in 1999 under Dr. Peter Wagner, I was given a prophetic word by James Goll that I was to host an international gathering of prophets in 2017 at Trinity Church in Cedar Hill, Texas.
We have obeyed that word as our ministry, Generals International, and 36 of the most respected prophets in the nation will gather together in an invitation-only consultation.
After this consultation, we will have an open event called the "Global Prophetic Summit" in which these leaders will share on the most cutting-edge prophetic teaching. Subjects include dream interpretation, the seer gift and more. There will be a room for the attendees to have their dreams interpreted as well as receive personal words of the Lord.
This is the first of its kind. It will be a watershed moment for the prophetic movement worldwide.
This hinge-of-history moment will open the door for prophetic revelation on a level that has not been known in a collective way.
