Dry Bones
Ezekiel 37:1–10 NKJV
1 The hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones. 2 Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry. 3 And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.” 4 Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5 Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 6 I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.” ’ ” 7 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8 Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them. 9 Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” ’ ” 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.

signifies “the speaking forth of the mind and counsel of God”

In We read about the appointing of the first King of Isreal named Saul.
Saul was informed by a Prophet to go to the school of Prophets and that the Spirit of God would come over him and cause him to prophesy and that he would become a new man as a result of the encounter.
in King David was hanging out at the school of prophets where Samuel the Prophet was training others to prophesy and Saul who wanted to kill David sent messengers to capture David they all began to prophesy. Three times Saul sent his messengers and all three times they would get to the school of prophets, see Samuel standing as their leader and the Spirit of God would come over them and they would all start to prophesy.
Finally Saul himself went to capture David and he too falling with his face toward the ground took off his garments and began to prophesy.
We know in part
1 Corinthians 13:9 NKJV
9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
Prophesying edifies the church
1 Corinthians 14:3 NKJV
3 But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men.
1 Corinthians 12:28–31 NKJV
28 And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles? 30 Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? 31 But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way.
