This Book Will Launch You Into Prophetic Training

This is your Prophetic Mentor in a Book

Wouldn't it be incredible if someone could have walked you through your prophetic calling and pointed out all the potholes BEFORE you fell into them?

Unfolded step by step, you will have someone along the way telling you what to avoid, what to embrace and most importantly...what to do next along your prophetic journey.

From Worm to Butterfly: The Making of a Prophet

The Prophet is one who knows all about rejection and going against the grain. He rocks the boat and just doesn't fit in. Nevertheless, God plucks this "black sheep" and transforms him into a mighty warrior. Follow along, mark where you are at, and see what is up ahead for you on this journey.

Apostle Colette covers everything from dealing with stumbling blocks that keep the prophet from rising up, to learning how to flow in the gifts. Not only will you learn how to hear His voice, you can track where you are in your prophetic journey. Are you in the preparation phase? Or have you entered into the last leg of the race that will usher you into standing in the fullness of Prophetic Office?

Move through the stages mapped out in this book quickly as you learn to:

  • Identify your prophetic call and preparation clearly
  • Flow in the prophetic gifts without getting into deception!
  • Find out what your mandate is, face-to-face with Jesus
  • Move from "baby prophet" to being anointed and appointed as one in Prophetic Office... and avoid being squashed as an ugly worm before you become that butterfly!

Practical Prophetic Ministry is your guide along this journey. Taking you through training and pointing out the way you need to go, it is a must if you have a prophetic calling.

Excerpt: Practical Prophetic Ministry

Excerpt from: Chapter 02 - A Lesson On: Identifying the Prophet

Prophet: What's That?

When I was a little girl I sneaked into my mother's bedroom and went to her dresser where she kept her cosmetics. Then one by one I pulled out all the powders, lipsticks and lotions. I had a plan and a purpose... I wanted to look like a lady! I thought that I looked rather pretty with that smear of red lipstick and smudge of mascara, but I came to a startling reality when my mother entered the room - less than amused that I had demolished most of her beauty cabinet!

I felt that if I could try and put on make-up like I saw her do every morning that I would look like a lady and that everyone would think I was big. But it took a few years to learn that it takes more to being a lady than just wearing cosmetics. I had to grow up a bit first. I had to face the pains of adolescence and only then did I begin shaping into the lady I had dreamed of as a child.

Now before you discount this as some personal tip on the art of cosmetics, let me show you something. When the Lord first calls you to be a prophet you will likely have a picture in your mind of what a prophet is and that picture will be based on what you have seen in others and the picture you get from the Old Testament prophets and John the Baptist. And so as you form these pictures you feel that in order to become the prophet the Lord has called you to be, you need to clothe yourself in the camel's hair, eat locusts and look and act like a wild man!

And so you find something like this taking place...

Beady little eyes, hair wild in the wind, wearing sack cloth and ashes, stick waving in hand, volatile and wild eyed...the prophet burst into the church to deliver the message that God had to give to him. He could not however understand why the word was not received and why found himself being thrust out of the church as quickly as he had entered it!

Now if you were not a prophet you might even find that picture amusing. But if you have walked along the road called prophetic preparation that image might bring back a few memories of your own!

So what went wrong? You knew you were called; you had a true word from God. Why was it not received? Well your presentation was as well received as mine was when my mother saw the mess I had made with her cosmetics! You needed to grow up a little first. You tried acting out a role and tried to fit into shoes that were not yours to wear. You tried to put on a mask of what you thought you should be instead of being what the Lord had called you to be.

It is Time to Grow Up! It is around this time that the Lord will take you through training to deal with all those things. As He brings to death all your ideas about what you think a prophet is, He can begin maturing you. But while you are still trying to match yourself up to your preconceived ideas, you will be nothing but that little girl playing with cosmetics and thinking she is doing great, or that little boy pretending to shave just like daddy and emptying out his bottle of aftershave! If you did not get the hint the first time, then you will not get it until you finally realize, "You do not look so good! You are messing up! It is time to grow up."

So if you are putting aside all these preconceived ideas, then what does a prophet really look like? How should you be acting? Well you are about to find out that you have had the signs of the prophet all along and that all you have needed to do is grow into them! You see, I was a little girl and I had all the 'equipment' that would make me a lady one day but I just had to grow into it! And you may have been a little boy with the potential to shave - you just needed to experience a phase called adolescence first!

You do not need to try and put on the camel's hair and be wild and hairy to be a prophet! You are already a prophet; now just learn to grow into what was ordained for you since the womb. Look, if you did not show the signs from the womb, you are not about to suddenly show them now! A prophet is called from the moment conception takes place. So take a load off yourself and as I take you through each of these signs rest in the knowledge that you are called and anointed for this office and then as we progress through these teachings you will come to use and mature in what the Holy Spirit has given you!

What a Prophet Looks Like

Let me paint a picture for you of what a prophet looks like and then I will give you a list of ten of the most common signs to watch out for in someone called to be a prophet.

So far I have told you what a prophet is NOT. So what DOES a prophet look like? I know you are dying to know, so I want to share a couple of principles here that we have learned from experience as we have trained the fivefold ministry. What I am going to share with you here is based on personal experience and what we have come to learn in the Word and in the spirit.

Okay, let's see what a prophet looks like...

"Take, my brothers, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience." James 5:10

Patience? ...I Think Not! I am sure that you know the suffering affliction part, but many have to work on the 'and of patience' part? I think that Paul put that in just to be sarcastic. Because I have yet got to see the "patience" he speaks of here in a prophet!

A prophet sees in black or white. It is either yes or it is no, black or white, night or day. You are a sinner or you're not. It is either right or it's wrong. The program is either correct or it is incorrect. That prophecy was either anointed or it was not anointed. It was either of God or not of God. That is just the way it is. There is no middle line with the prophet.

Prophets can be very frustrating to be around when you are trying to find your way sometimes, because you are still feeling your way around and they are saying, "No, that's not good enough. You're either here or there. You're either committed or you're not committed. You're either on fire or you are not on fire. Make up your mind. We don't have time to mess around here. You decide now." They see in black and white.

Your Middle Name... Rejection!

A prophet has the desire to set the captives free. We have a question that goes:

"What burns in you for ministry?"

Everybody answers that question with something like, "I have a desire to set the captives free, to see the hurting healed. To see those who have been broken restored, and to see the people who have been abused get healing."

Do you know people like that? That is the motivation of a prophet. He wants to set the captives free. He wants to see those in bondage set free. He wants to see the broken healed. He wants to see those who have been hurt by the church restored. He wants to go out on the highways and byways and find all the sheep that have fallen along the wayside. He wants to get the rejects, the little nobodies, and he wants to bring them in to mend and heal them. This is a very strong passion and desire in the heart of a prophet.

Rejection is the middle name of the prophet. Call me Colette Rejection Toach. That is the prophet. They know rejection better than they know anything else in this world. From the day that they were born rejection is something that they have faced all their lives. They couldn't fit in here, they couldn't fit in there. You would think that growing up in a Christian home I would have found it comfortable in Christian circles. But you know I didn't fit neither here nor there. I did not fit in the world because I was one of those Christian people, you know with my dad being the preacher and all, so I had that stigma to carry around.

They said to me, "So what does your dad do?"

"Well, he's a preacher."

You are labeled! "That's the preacher's kid!"

As a result I didn't fit in with the world. And yet when it came to church I thought, "Well here is where I should fit in. Here is where I should be comfortable." No. I didn't fit in there either. I did not seem to have a place. I was just kind of tossed here and there. Does it sound familiar? It is the prophet and rejection. He does not fit in anywhere, and even when he should fit in he doesn't fit in. He has likely been kicked out of, or left the church for a season. That is just such a trademark of the prophet. People think I have revelation when I say to them, "You've been kicked out of your church haven't you?"

"How did you know that?"

If you are a prophet, the chances are you have left the church system for a while. You have either rebelled against the system, or you have been thrown out of the system. In fact it has happened, probably a couple of times, depending on how many times it took you to learn the lesson the first time. If you are hard headed it has probably happened a good many times. The prophet has had conflict with the local church and needs to have it because it is part of the training. And then the Lord brings them back changed.

This is powerful in depth teaching and revelation with what a prophet is and deals with from birth. It deals with the causes of rejections and conflicts. Also the none fading inner burning desires to minister and release what prophets receive.. I\'m so elated and relived to know that I\'m not the only one who has been put out of a church and who\'s natural mother left him to be raised byhis grandfather not knowing his biological father. I am now embracing my calling and people with more love and understanding. My God bless You all for I have long searched for my Elijah and have found him. Many of my wounds are beginning to heal since I can now learn who I am and what all this Holy Ghost does inside of me. At the the age of 24 spiritual direction has never sounded much good! Thankyou!!! Lord Bless.

Greetings to you in the Lord Jesus Christ. I I am currently reading two of your books, and let me tell you, that they're very interesting and even fascinating.

It has not only expanded my knowledge about the the 7 different ways on hear the voice of God, and about the Apostolic and prophetic ministries. In return, all I can say at this moment, is " May the Lord Bless you, and May He keep you." I will start the Prophetic course with you very shortly, as I called by God to develop that gift.

Now I believe that this is where your ministry comes into play. However, I would like to point out something that will help the book "Practical Prophetic Ministry" to be more effective and understandable.

As I'm reading this amazing book, I have come across quite a bit of spelling errors and irregular spaces between letters of a word. I would say that it maybe through this amazing book. Why I call it amazing, is because this hits the very core of what God has called me to be. I believe, that if you went back and corrected these errors, it will be more effective, and that more of the Prophets will be released for the Lords work by this book.

God Bless you

I am really feeling since I started reading the Practical Prophetic book that this is the start of something that Ive just felt God whisper into my heart and now I can step out into a realm of faith with Him.

It is so simple that sometimes a person misses it, I love the practical examples Apostle Colette uses and its like a picture has been coloured in for me. I feel more mature already as I realise what is expected of a prophet and what this walk really is, and I feel God has called me back to basics, to just sitting at His feet and to let go of my own ideas that have hindered Him.

You need a mentor and with this book, you have one!

I can still remember the first day I stepped foot into my old church. I had just realized that the Lord had called me to be a prophet, and I hungered to know more, to experience more of the Lord Jesus in any way I could. I was going to church 3 times a week, going to prayer meetings, got involved in the youth worship team, and it was a great time.

The Lord was there, ministry was happening, but still I knew that there was more. I sensed that God had called me to do more than just pray with a prayer list and bring a prophetic word. I hungered for more. And God, like He always does, gave me the desire of my heart.

He enabled me at a young age, to become a student in the first AMI (GMR back then) Prophetic Training School and in time to recieve personal mentorship from Apostle Colette. It was through her that the Lord enabled me to rise up much quicker that I ever thought, into prophetic office and start to fulfill His calling on my life.

You need a mentor in your life. Because while God can teach you the lessons on your own, there are a lot of hard knocks and it takes much longer. You could spend 40 years wandering through the desert until you arrive, or you have a short, intense time of training, and start your new journey.

This book will mentor, challenge, convict, but most of all, change you. Get this book and you will not be dissapointed!

This book has been such a blessing in my life as to where the Lord has me and where He is currently taking me. This book made me laugh, cry,upset and convicted. It cause me to repent and celebrate all at the same time. I praise God, for Apostle Toach, her straight forwardness and no hold back approach is very refreshing in this End Times. Her experience in school regarding sports was very funny , because I had the same exp. with running track. I'm looking forward to further discovering the great treasures of God's word and wisdom that flows through GMR publishing. God bless you all in our Lord Jesus Name.

The title says it all. This is the first complete book I've ever read that not only teaches you how to stir up the gift of prophecy but how to actually practice prophesying. Other books/teachings for the most part only deal with why we should prophesy, who in the bible were prophets and seers, etc... Now don't get me wrong, books that lay down a good foundation about what the prophetic is all about is a necessity. But we also need books that get down to the practicality of the matter as well. This book does just that! You don't have to read 30 pages before you find exercises that you can actually use. I highly recommend this book.

* If your'e anything like me , you grew up in home and wondered why you never fit in even with the other siblings * You were always the odd one out* Down through the years you may have thought Why me, GOD. You could make friends but never kept them,you own family hardly ever wanted to be around because for some reason you were different, even though you were not trying.
The moment you can see yourself in any of the above situations, the Practical Prophet book will answer all these questions and more * As I began to read this book questions were answered that I lived in my early years up until now, I am telling you, you do not want to be without this book. You may not want to operate in the Prophetic but this book will change your life forever as it did mine. The anointing will jump off the pages as you and read and cause you to understand the channel that GOD has bought you through & why* So if you want some deliverance from you past as well as you present this is a book you want to purchase, and experience that anointing that destroys yoke, removes burdens & lets the oppressed go free *

This book has really played a big part in my prophetic walk with God.This book helps you to understand things that you have questioned the lord about,and the things that is going on in your life that will help keep you from giving up on your calling.This book really go underground on things of the prophets,and can help many that the lord is calling in these last and evil days.So prepare your hearts for some real understanding of the prophetic ministry from the lord anointed author.

When I was first led by the holy spirit to this website (five-fold training center) I was directed to purchase this book, to be released in the call on my life.
When I started the beginning of this book, I began to see how so many prophets have had a quark wedged in them to keep them from being released into their call as a prophet(their destiny) I was one of them. This book has given me such revelation and confirmation of what the lord has been speaking to me, and this book has caused a foundation to be laid down in the call on my life, and after reading the entire book, I started to build ontop of that foundation, as the holy spirit begin to help me birth and travial more in the spirit, to take me to deeper depths with the lord, and higher heights from level to level, and glory to glory. I thank the lord for using Colleen Toach as a vessel to release and set free many of those all over the nations to their destiny, their call into the office of a prophet. God bless you,
