Early in the morning I saw a quick flash sign in bright yellow.
It said SEER, but the word was upside down and backward on the sign.
I heard the LORD say, “The prophets are not doing their job. They are turned around and upside down.
I have gifted many in prophecy, EXTRA REVALATORY POWERS.
I need them all in place for what I AM about to do. I AM doing a new thing.
I need prophets to carry out My plans, they must be available to Me first and then carry out My wishes.”
Jesus is a prophet:
“And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the Kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people,” Matthew 9:35 (KJV)
Paul was a foundational prophet because he wrote a large part of the New Testament:
“Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity,” 1 Timothy 2:7 (KJV).
John the Baptist was a prophet:
“For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he,” Luke 7:28 (KJV).
“In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, and saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” Matthew 3:1-2 (KJV).
The Prophet doesn’t go around giving personal prophecies to everyone, or who will give a word or prophesy for money.
He is first and foremost a preacher or a teacher of the Word of God.
This person giving personal words to people, will get into error and wreak havoc in the Body of Christ.
A prophet often speaks by inspiration, and in that sense, his preaching can be prophesying in its simplest form-inspired utterance to edify, exhort, and comfort, (1 Corinthians 14:3).
“The prophet prepares himself in the Word, but more by praying and seeking God.
Actually it’s a preparation of the heart because the prophet has to prophesy according to the proportion of his faith, (Romans 12:6).
Therefore his faith has to be kept strong by spending much time with the LORD and in His Word.
Then, he speaks more from inspiration, under the prophetic unction, not from something he necessarily knows mentally.
In fact, they study the Word and wait before God in prayer, but they seldom prepare a message… the Holy Spirit gives it to them on the spur of the moment.
That is the prophets office in demonstration,” Kenneth E. Hagin.
God Bless You, you are in my prayers
