1. Simple Prophecy-Speaking the general Word of God-Any Believer who speaks something God has brought to mind. Acts 2:17 "All men & womn, old and young alike are to speak forth words from God." ..."Yet not all are prophets " 1. Cor. 12:29. "He who prophesies speaks edificaton and exhortation and comfort to men." -1 Cor. 14:3 = We are all called to speak the words of God-using the Bible, simple impressions from God/ visions/ or an idea God brought to mind --> General Prophecy.
2. Prophetic Gifting/ Ministry-Believers who's gifting has been recognized for regular ministry in the (local) church. They receive words and dreams on a regular basis, and on occasion-angelic visitation, audible voices. They sometimes received detailed information-names, faces, dates, future events. They occasionally operate in healings, miracles, deliverance. They may (in private) expose unconfessed sin (2 Sam. 12:1-7). They give simple prophecies + direction & correction.
3. Office of Prophet: Believers who ministry is like the prophets of the Old Testament. They give correction, direction, and bring new ideas/ emphasies to the Church body. They minister in signs and wonders and regularly prophesy with great accuracy. (Samuel, Elijah). They provide direction and correction to those in gov't in the church, marketplace, & political arenas. Their fruits are mature character & wisdom-understanding of God's corporate purpose and ways.
