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.
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.
