The Call of a Prophet

In the times we live in and with so many claiming to be prophets or having a word from the Lord. I came across this blog entry and decided to re-blog it. I by no means want to minimize nor marginalize the genuine prophetic. What I hope to accomplish by re-posting this blog is to make people take words  supposedly from the Lord to Him for confirmation no matter who the prophet or person is that had a word from God posted on their blog or one that they may hear elsewhere. Some prophecies that I have seen lately have scripture mixed with venom from people who have been wounded and allowed the wound to fester and the word they post, while using scripture, is full of venom and so the word that they post becomes more their word than the Lords.

He has you

The nearer we get to the end of the age, the greater the outpouring of the Holy Spirit there will be. “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions” (Joel 2:28).

We need to teach people to prophesy rightly, or to not prophesy at all. The outpouring will come, but will we be ready? The words below came during a prayer session recently, and I added the verses as foundation afterwards. I am hoping to do one blog on each of the five-fold ministries.

Prophesying has little to do with telling the future, and more to do with exposing the present.

A prophet must rely upon the resources of God, or sit down.

A prophet should not seek a prophecy for themselves.

  1. Very good words there Tony, thank you!
    I have now and then been misled in the past, reading some of those really long-winded ‘thus saith the Lord’ prophets, and then realising it was basically a stream of what was in their own subconscious. I got very annoyed by all the false prophets out there. (Often totally contradicting each other!)
    🙂
    Then I came to realise they do us a favour. Someone once wrote a good analogy: suppose I hold up a banknote and tell you it’s Albanian currency, and you believe me. But let’s say it’s counterfeit. How could you tell? – you’ve never seen any real Albanian money, so you’re unable to tell the difference! You aren’t stupid, just unaware of it.
    How will we notice it? By trying to spend it. We’d quickly learn it’s fake money, because it buys nothing. (Translation: it gives no fruits in our lives).
    So if we listen for the Lord first, we come to know His voice, and then the prophecies-that-aren’t get immediately recognisable, you know: ‘The Lord doesn’t talk like that. He doesn’t use archaic language, or drone on for hours, or spew venom. That is not His voice. I know His voice, and it’s just not like that.’
    I mean, if someone called pretending to be your wife, you’d know instantly it wasn’t her, wouldn’t you? You know her voice so well. What the impostor said might sound reasonable and believable, but that’d be irrelevant, because you *know* it’s not her.
    Your real wife, on the other hand, could call you with some astounding, incredible news, and you’d believe her, because you know it is her voice.
    So my take is that the slow way is finding out that counterfeit ‘currency’ never seems to advance anyone on their path; the quicker, better way is to try to learn to hear the Lord yourself. You then have an inbuilt forgery-detector! 🙂

  2. “Prophesying has little to do with telling the future, and more to do with exposing the present.” So many have prophesy all wrong. You’re spot on “…exposing the present.” God bless!
