Your IQ can change over time. The older you are, the more stable your test score will be. The most volatility in IQ scores is in childhood, mostly in adolescence.
Why do you need to raise your prophetic IQ?
Your prophetic IQ is critical to your ability to be successful in various spheres of influence. It is the will of the God for prophets to be able to function in more than just the church.
The church is the equipping center for developing prophets and prophetic people, but it is not the only place that their gift will function effectively.
We saw examples in Joseph, Moses and Daniel of those who were prophetic but their gift and office functioned in spheres outside of the local church.
The following reasons are WHY we need to raise our prophetic IQ:
- Prophets are needed in GOVERNMENT
- Prophets are needed in BUSINESS
- Prophets are needed in EDUCATION
- Prophets are needed in ENTERTAINMENT
However, if our training in the prophetic is only understanding how to say “THUS, saith the LORD” then the other spheres of influence will not be OPENED to us.
How do we raise our prophetic IQ?
- Determining your METRON or sphere of influence. (Ephesians 4:1-11, 2 Cor 10:12-16)
2 Corinthians 10:12-16 (NKJV)
12 For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. 13 We, however, will not boast beyond measure, but within the limits of the sphere which God appointed us—a sphere which especially includes you. 14 For we are not overextending ourselves (as though our authority did not extend to you), for it was to you that we came with the gospel of Christ; 15 not boasting of things beyond measure, that is,in other men’s labors, but having hope, that as your faith is increased, we shall be greatly enlarged by you in our sphere, 16 to preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man’s sphere of accomplishment.
We can only become sharper in the areas that we focus on developing. It is not only for us to develop our prophetic senses but we must also develop our professional skills.
- Being connected to a prophetic COMMUNITY
- Continuing our development through proven TRAINING and TRAINERS
- Being open to seasoned prophets for MENTORSHIP
- Reading and subscribing to material and content both in the prophetic AND in your
- Spending adequate time in WORSHIP and PRAYER for the heart of GOD concerning your INDUSTRY and place of INFLUENCE.
When we understand that we need to be effective in the systems of the world then we can focus in on developing what God has given us to advance His kingdom on earth.
