The Prophets Table Scripture: Then Samuel brought Saul and his servant into the hall and seated them at the head of those who were invited--about thirty in number. 23 Samuel said to the cook, "Bring the piece of meat I gave you, the one I told you to lay aside." 24 So the cook took up the leg with what was on it and set it in front of Saul. Samuel said, "Here is what has been kept for you. Eat, because it was set aside for you for this occasion, from the time I said, 'I have invited guests.' " And Saul dined with Samuel that day. (1 Samuel 9:22-24)
The Prophets Table is where feasting at the Lord's table for the spiritual nourishment of the good Word of God. Every member of the Body of Christ will have the opportunity to grow and express themselves in the Five-Fold Ministry of the Lord. I believe once we have spiritually nourish ourselves with the good Word of Lord and feasted personally at His table so that our testimony is strong, vibrant, and the maturing of every part of the body of Christ must be a priority if we are ever to accomplish the Lord's instructions. Reaching the stature of the fullness of Christ must be a collective effort.
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. (Ephesians 4:13-16)
