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 wild­eyed...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. Apostle Les D. Crause covers this extensively in his book "Identifying the Fivefold Ministry." If you want additional Word-based answers then just pick up that book and read it. 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.

You asked in an email recently if I survived the “Practical Prophetic Ministry” book. I more than survived! As I read the first parts, it put so much of my past into perspective. As I moved through the book, more and more rang true to me. I had already signed up for the Prophet’s course. Before I could start the course, I just had to finish this book.

It is as if the book has allowed me to be put back into the starting blocks again.

Two things: I look forward to starting the Dreams course now, and also to meeting you in person this April, 2012 at the seminar!

I feel lost, like Im in quicksand. I enjoy your teachings, but I feel like I am not making any progress.

The first several pracitical projects went well but now I'm stuck.I feel like I am at a standstill or there is an obsticle in my way.

I don't want to give up! I don't know how to get back on track. Please help me tear down the barriers that seem to be in my way.

First and foremost, I thank God for your obedience in Christ. This book has been a blessing from the very day I picked it up and began reading it. I was skeptical at first on buying because I like to review books physically for content before I buy but after struggling with the "buy" button for a few days, I finally said yes and gave up the fight. I have to admit that I couldn't put it down from the day I received it and finished it in 3 days. I now go back and revisit chapters as I go through things. As I read this book I felt my life story unfolding; it was as if the book was telling my life. I would literally go through something, pick up the book and was amazed on how it would speak into the very situation I was going through at ghe moment. Not only this book, but also the email newsletters. Your writings have been such a blessing to me and have encouraged me in times when I felt alone with Jesus. Its wonderful to know that I am not alone and that there is someone out there who understands and can relate. I love this book and I also look forward to the daily blessings and prophetic newsletters in addition to my daily Bible readings. May God continue to use you and bless you AMI. I am looking forward to God's blessing and meeting you all at the seminar in April.

I have been trying to figure out where I belong in the body of Christ. The Holy Spirit inspired me to write poems about caterpillars and butterflies and now I feel like I found where I belong and this book is most definitely the greatest book of changes to my life that I have ever read, next to the Bible. Its a book that transforms us and teaches us how to get our boat in the water! There are important keys filled of wisdom and understanding of the prophetic ministry in this book. Its like reading the book of Revelation and it comes to life on the inside of you. If you purchase this book, and apply it to your life, you will be transformed. I just completed it, applied it to my life and my life is changed forever! Thank you Colette, I am so grateful for your impartation and this book of transformation. I think its a must read for every prophetic person in the body of Christ. Every Pastor should get this book to help their prophetic ministry. Thank you Lord for answer to my prayer and thank you Holy Spirit for leading me to this awesome ministry so I can get my wings to fly! Bless this ministry Lord and use them mightily to raise up your Prophets. Amen.

Praise God.I remember going to this church and they were lying on hands and prophecing. This lady layed hands on me and said before the church.I hear just like Jeremial fire shut up in my bone.Sometimes I feel this great power in me.I have find myself cying because I wanted someone to just ask me to pray for them. I do not make myself known,because God said pray in the closet and I will reward thy openly. Aint God good. I just finished reading Practical Prophetic Ministry book. It was a blessing to me.I can relate to everything in this book.I would like to tell you alittle about me. God called from the womb.I remember as a little girl sitting in the church every time the preacher say Jesus I feel something in me raising the hair on my body like I do now.I would watch the preacher how he come in the church sit his wife down on the front seat then he goes to the back and get ready to preach.I had to be less than seven or eight. I remember saying I don't see how people can go to clubs,drink and come to church and it not borther them.I just could not do that. That's playing with God. I would be scared how can they do that.I said it then and is still saying it now.I was baptised at twelve years old.Holy Ghost filled at twenty-eight years old. I remember reading this book called American in Prophecy. This book seemed so real to me. It was just like I was in this book when I read it.I was in my early twenties. I say to this day I stepped on the devil toes. I went through so much. This is when God started using me.Tell them what thou says the Lord and so on....I went through so much I throught I was going to die. But God said he would not put more on you than you can bare.I told God once tell them to leave me alone. He said you tell them. Every since then I been telling them.I got mad at the Amercian in Prophecy book and threw it away.You mentioned something about a book in Practical Prophetic Ministry book. I mentioned about birth of ministry.I had something strange happen to me back in march of 2010.I was going out to tend to the dog and I had on high heels it had just turned dark.My son had putted the wire fence down and I forgot and fell face down really hard. I was scared pretty bad. I went back in the house.I had dirt on me so i took off my cloths to get in the shower.I saw a embyro in a sac.This was a vision.Then I heard a baby crying.I even felt my heart beat different.I just received my ordained minister license. This must have been my ministry birthing.This was also in your book.Thanks again.......COLETTE TOACH. You have been a blessing to me. I enjoy LES D. CLAUSE daily inspirations.

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

Now i understand why i have to go through what i went through.It makes the puzzle to fit so nicely. I bless God for making to find your site on the internet while searching information about Prophets.Although, sometimes i just struggle but i understand that i am still a baby Prophet. I sometimes sense in my spirit that i want to prophecy but it doesnt come through.Recently, i had a dream and i am still figuring out what it meant.I was about to be interviewed to be a TV presenter and was in line and as i was waiting i was talking to some who were there for the auditions for acting.We talked about the ATM that i went to which was not working and they told me that ATM is useless.Afterwards, i saw myself not in the interview anymore but in the same machine withdrawing R500 but as it come out i realised it is R5000 so i hid it in my breast because at the back of my mind i knew the place was not safe and i was not driving but walking.After i drew the money i was scared i went to one of the houses i found one woman and ask her which road to use and she told me downtown and she said do not be afraid the Lord is always on your side.Then i left but on the way one young man came running to me i thought he wanted the money only to find out that he wanted to rape me.As i was fighting that he shouldnt pull me dress up i shouted the name of Jesus and suddenly i woke up. It was indeed a frightening dream. The other day i dreamed vomiting worms they were not so many but they were stuck in my chest.One women dreamt me and her fighting this big man with red hair and eventually at 00h00am we conqured him and tye him with a rope and throw him in a big whole

Our Lord knows exactly what we need! When I began reading this book, I knew that it had been sent directly from the Lord's Hand to me. There is no way that anyone could have know exactly what I have been going through unless they lived through it, as well.

I have had no one to mentor me, or explain why I am so different - why I cry when the church is rejoicing or why I rejoice when the church body is crying. I have had no one to explain why I can hear God's Heart weeping, have night visions, or get bored with programmed services. But after reading this book, I understand me; and now I am free to love my uniqueness and my calling!

Colette Toach wrote of things that identified me down to the minutest details. How would she know that I asked God for a keyboard when I had no idea how to play it? He has blessed me to be able to play during private times of worship, but only God could have revealed that to her by way of first-hand experience. I have been set free to enter the preparation stages of my calling (though I feel that I have been being prepared my entire life!).

This book is divinely inspired and will change your life forever! I have been telling everyone about it.
