Burn With Zeal To Prophesy


Paul’s strongest statement about prophecy comes in 1 Cor 14:39, where he instructs us to “covet to prophesy.” This word is not just permission to allow prophecy; it describes it as an objective to be earnestly pursued. The word covet–ZELOO in the Greek–means “to burn with zeal!” We are not to simply be open to prophecy or passively wait for it, or even to use it as an exciting additive in our Christian walk. Rather we are to burn with zeal for recognizing God’s voice here on earth and speaking it forth.

1) to burn with zeal
a) to be heated or to boil with envy, hatred, anger
1) in a good sense, to be zealous in the pursuit of good
b) to desire earnestly, pursue
1) to desire one earnestly, to strive after, busy one’s self about him
2) to exert one’s self for one (that he may not be torn from me)
3) to be the object of the zeal of others, to be zealously sought after
c) to envy
