Jacob Prasch answers my question, after all!

email: The question
Hi Tim, Wasn’t sure if this is where questions are taken; but I really didn’t want to ask it in the facebook group. Many times questions are viewed as attacks against or about the speaker or topic. Facebook’s a tough place to learn sometimes.
Anyway my question is;
If a woman can be a prophetess to whom then is she prophesying to? Is she to prophesy to just women? Or men also? After all the junk of “personal prophesies” that I came out of I tend to lean toward a prophetic word being spoken more to the corporate body than individuals or just one group. Jacob speaks about this around the six-minute mark. Thanks and if this isn’t the proper place to ask this question I apologize and if you would let me know where to send it that would be great.
To foretell or predict, by divine inspiration. To speak as a mediator between God and humankind or in God’s stead.
Archaic. To teach religious subjects.
“We see there are prophetesses, we see there are places where women did prophesy. The daughters of Philip were prophetesses, OBVIOUSLY they spoke in the congregation”
So this just adds more questions concerning Jacob Prasch’s teachings. As he refused to address my questions and after the recent video “A Woman’s Covering” he never again, not once, mentions the fact that women prophesy (in the later 3 videos that he did on women). He dances all around it but won’t say it. He says women under certain conditions can give exhortations and on and on he goes but he won’t say a women can prophesy to the congregation. So it’s obvious that women prophesying and operating in one of the gifts, apparently goes against his doctrine that he teaches on women teachings men doctrine.
BUT he can say it when he is making the distinction of women keeping silent in the church in chapter 14, as he is in this video. So Jacob which is it? You simply can’t have it both ways. You’re literally speaking out of both sides of your mouth. You are wreaking havoc in the body of Christ and His Word.
