“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.” Psalm 46:1-3.
“Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” John 14:17.
To begin, I will share the article I wrote yesterday, because many questions are coming in from the article: “False Prophets are an Open Sepulcher of Dead Men’s Bones“
So now here I will attempt to clarify and give you my personal position here. We all have to be very careful that we keep a balance in these matters.
No one is infallible but God. I admire and respect many that speak a “thus saith The LORD” Word ,if it is true.
Still, I am not just chasing a Word all over the place, but trying to humble my heart daily and hear The LORD myself.
Jesus Christ is the mediator for us to pray to The Father through. He loves you as much as He loves me or anyone else. He definitely will speak to you personally, and clearly! I am no one special, but just a 69 year old lady from S.C.
When you and I get still in His Presence and seek Him with our whole heart then we will find Him. To me personally, I hear Him speak mostly in that ‘still small voice. ‘ It is not audible but very clear in my spirit man.
“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10.
(Other scriptures at the bottom.)
I will throw this in here, part of what has made me personally so hungry for God. The first pastor I ever sat under as a small child, till a young mother with a child myself, influenced me greatly.
I saw Jesus in him and loved him with all my heart. I took notes as he preached.
One statement really stood out to me, he spoke:
“Jesus Christ speaks loud enough to be heard and clear enough to be understood.”
You know why this grabbed hold in my own life? Preacher Joe got up every morning and got in a prayer closet at 4:am to pray. He was different and the glory even showed on his face. I got hungry for more of God.
We must get hungry for The LORD and truly seek Him! There is no time to fear, but to come alive and dwell in The Holy Place.
If you would like to read ‘Part 1’ of my early years testimony here it is: “Testimony and The Wait on The LORD is Weighty (Parts 1 & 2)“
Getting back on track here: we can’t go too far one way, and say no one is true who gives a Prophetic Word!
Some even throw it all out the door, and falsely say all that was done away with in the New Testament. I beg to differ.
There is still a ‘Five Fold Ministry’ operating in the true Church. Still I believe it is being corrected so we can all flow together well in these end times. We are to love one another and work in Unity in The Body of Christ.
“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-12.
Now, on the other hand, unless we are truly led, we do not need to go too far in the other direction to expose false prophets!!
Some may do that, (it may be ‘their’ assignment) but it is not my purpose here on this site! I don’t then want you following me, but The LORD, Who will give you the answers!
Only follow me, as I follow Christ.
“Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 11:1.
We are definitely in the last days. Look up to the one true God who can keep us and give us hope! He is an ever present help in the time of trouble. I love you all. God bless you.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith The LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:11-13.
“And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of The LORD came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah? And he said, I have been very jealous for The LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before The LORD. And, behold, The LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before The LORD; but The LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but The LORD was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but The LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.” 1 Kings 19: 9-12.
“And he answering said, Thou shalt love The LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” Luke 10:27.
