Criteria For Levels of Prophecy

Criteria For Levels of Prophecy

The site format is divided into two primary sections: lower level or lower prioritized general prophetic links under Week Of, and higher level or higher prioritized prophetic statements or declarations under Editor’s Choice. 

The dileneation of levels of prophecy – which CS believes is consistent with Biblical truth (see, Evaluating Prophets and Prophecy) – is an attempt to prioritize and organize prophetic voices and messages. That said, that certain voices or prophecies are designated as a lower level of prophecy does not necessarily mean that they are lower level prophecies or prophets.

Primary Criterion

Our primary criterion for determining where to place an entry is how the prophecy or revelation is received – if this can be determined. But, due to various methods of explanation by those receiving prophecy this may not be possible to ascertain.

Secondary Criteria

Therefore, classification under Week Of or Editor’s Choice also has to do with priority and importance of the word, familiarity with the prophetic voice, history, observed prophesies, and what Common Sense knows first-hand about the voices involved. CS is more familiar with some than others; we will seek to progressively rectify that fact.

CS also evaluates prophecies Spirit to spirit, not person to person. That is, even a soulish person may genuinely prophesy occasionally or on a one-time basis, if the Holy Spirit wills (remember Saul?). But placement may also just reflect a week’s feelings or priorities, or how an entry relates to current events.


Common Sense receives no financial benefit from any of the persons or sites mentioned. Though this site also has no formal relationship with or endorsement from the prophetic voices highlighted on the site, Common Sense Prophecy recommends the following two links as a further general introduction to the entries:
