TruthTalks: Prophecy


I recently presented an overview of the ‘gift’ of prophecy and I am sharing it here on Truth is The Word.

Part One is just under an hour long and covers seven common questions:
  1. What is prophecy?
  2. What forms does it take?
  3. How is it different to Old Testament prophecy?
  4. Why is it important to us?
  5. How are we to prophesy?
  6. How do we test prophecy?
  7. How should we respond to genuine prophecy?

The key scriptures I reference are 1 Corinthians 14:1-5, 29-33  1 Corinthians 13:9-12  Acts 11:28  21:10-11

In Part Two, I give just over half an hour to taking questions from the audience, but if you would like to listen to this you will need to click HERE. Below you will find the audio of the teaching itself.

Have a listen, and if you have any questions you don’t feel I addressed, please feel free to post to my Facebook Page or email me at

Thank you for listening, here is the audio:

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
