In the last days sons and daughter will prophecy—they may not all be prophets but just moving in the gifts. Prophecy will not only move in us but our children and prophets will emerge as well.
1. You will see signs and wonders. You will move in gifts.

"In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophecy,
Your young men will see visions,
Your old men with dream dreams."
2. You will prosper and be successful.
II Chronicles 20:20 NIV
Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa. As they set out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, "Listen to me, Judah and the people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful."
3. You will receive their reward:
Receive the prophet and you will receive their reward.
Receive a person of righteousness and you will receive their righteousness.
Matthew 10:41 NIV
"Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet's reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person's reward."
4. You will receive cutting edge revelation, God consults with his prophets.
Amos 3:7 NIV
"Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing
without revealing his plan
to his servants the prophets."
5. You will be able to walk circumspectly within wisdom.
Proverbs 29:18 NIV
"Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint;
but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom's instructions."
6. Gifts often come through prophecy and the laying on of hands by the prophets who are equipping and empowering you.
I Timothy 4:14-15 NIV
"Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the elders laid their hands on you.
Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress."
7. Empower and equip you for victorious warfare. The blessings of the prophets keeps you firm in faith so you can fight strongly, accurately and victoriously.
I Timothy 1:18-19 NIV
Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, holding onto faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck in regard to their faith.
8. The blessings of the prophets restores families and protects in times of destruction.
Malachi 4:5-6 NIV
"See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction,"
Your will and obedience are vehicles for the spirit.
