I was in a meeting yesterday and we were talking about prophecy and someone asked, "Is prophecy supposed to bring division sometimes?"
Now most of use who believe in this sort of thing believe that prophesy today is used for the edification and building up which makes it a positive thing (see 1Cor12 and 14), even if it's directional or correctional - and we can get into all that at another time. I was curious about how you would answer this question.
In certain cases, is the intention of a prophetic word supposed to bring division? Which begs the question, is division a bad thing?
