Prophecy is one of the powerful manifestations of the gift of holy spirit, and is evidenced throughout Scripture, beginning in Genesis. Although prophecies have been spoken and written for years, this vital manifestation is often misunderstood. Many Christians do not know that most prophecies are conditional in nature, even if they are not spoken as such. Though spoken as if a future event will absolutely happen, prophecy is often a warning, pointing to what will happen if people do not change. We see these truths as this teaching examines the record in Jeremiah 18, in which God sends Jeremiah to a potter’s house with a word from God to Israel. It then gives examples from Scripture that show the conditional nature of prophecy.
