There were some crazy ideas of “the prophetic” when I was growing up and then when I was early in ministry. There are still some wild ideas about what it means to be “prophetic” even today. Some things just keep recycling. Here is what I have concluded as I keep walking through Jeremiah and Daniel in my work on “Living in Babylon”:
To be prophetic is to walk with a weeping heart. It is a walk that is done in obscurity, only seen by the eyes of God, but that is all that is needed to make the difference.
