“This is what the Lord says:
‘Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord. He will be like a bush in the wastelands; he will not see prosperity when it comes. He will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives. But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit,’” Jeremiah 17:5-8.
We have levels of hearing and we have levels of speaking what has been heard.
Before I go any deeper, I suggest Prophets or any other within five-fold ministries, need to read this!
We often want to speak and hear Big things of God. We see this as a proof of being close with God and so for this reason, many have acquired for themselves mantles and titles that don’t meet God’s approval.
But I have also learnt that these people have either missed on crucial stages of growth, or at some point allowed error to enter them.
A prophet is made from somewhere, in those stages when God becomes so personal to the Prophet. At that time He will speak to you on matters of and about you, sometimes on such issues that really will expose your unwanted nature. You see who you are, and you embrace whom He drives you to be.
Here, many rebel and shall miss Prophet’s mantle.
For those who cooperate with Him, He establishes obedience and humility as tools for future ministry, but this is a painful process. A prophet learns how to totally obey God’s voice.
The weight of his future ministry is hinged upon how he/she was able to obey God’s personal messages to him, on all that pertains to Holiness. If you did not obey personal prophetic messages calling you to separation, holiness and God’s sanctification, then forget about being his voice on matters about his church or globe.
A prophet is more about his character and willingness to obey.
