Through this latest season of political entertainment, I am learning the word prophetic has a different meaning for those outside of the charismatic (usually right-wing) church. Prophetic for us is getting personal words about a person's destiny, or getting a dream from the Third Heaven, or ushering in revival. Prophetic for the left is Martin Luther King. Prophetic for the left is taking up the cause of economic justice, and speaking to political powers-that-be to get that justice. It's Ghandi, it's Farrakhan, it's the old testament prophetic stance.
Before my Regent University conservative republican-contract with america "democrats are devilcrats" days, I was a left wing liberal. I dug Cuomo before I dug Jesus. Not that I am a left winger now, I'd never vote for Hillary or Kerry, but I do thing Obama is the man of the hour and can make historic choices for the betterment of the USA as president.
Check out this video-- I like the part where he speaks about the Pope calling Iraq an immoral war.
I wonder if God would bring the left-wing and right-wing prophets into one camp, what would happen?
