The end purpose of all true prophecy is to build up, to admonish, and to encourage the people of Cod. Anything, that is not directed to this end is not true prophecy.

Wherever the Holy Spirit says "Yes" in the scripture, he says "Yes" also through prophecy. And wherever he says "No" in the scripture, he says "No" also through prophecy. True prophecy never contradicts the scripture.

"The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy" (Rev 19:10). A true prophet will be known by the fruit of the holy spirit in his/her character and conduct (Matt 7:16)
