For those of you who are Prophets who warn, bring woe, or confront, know that as you release those Words, especially of warning, you will often be labeled as a witch or speaking curses when what you speak comes to pass.
Throughout the years YAH has given me warnings and sometimes Words of Judgment and Correction that stir up warfare and persecution against me, because for some reason, people don’t believe that YAH will speak to the people like that.
They don’t believe that He will show someone the very acts which they are doing contrary to His will, or that He will tell them about danger coming upon them.
Often as Prophets, when we speak a Word that comes to pass and it’s concerning warfare and death, or some destruction or calamity, we are referred to as doomsday prophets or false prophets who are speaking divination against people, and because of the warfare and persecution, many have withheld information that was crucial to a persons’ life.
Sometime we will be shown things and won’t release, because we know the person won’t receive it.
Often, the persons whom a Prophet is sent to help, will often reject or rebel against what that prophet is saying, and become hostile toward that Prophet.
I often think about how many Prophets were despised because they didn’t speak what the people wanted to hear, but released what “thus saith The LORD.”
As Prophets, we must understand that we don’t prophesy for people to like us, or for accolades, or monetary gain, but we speak because The LORD has given us a Word for the person or a nation or a congregation.
You should never be more concerned about whether you are going to be received, rather than if you are being obedient to YAH!
Some your Words will seem harsh, cold and unfeeling. You will be accused of being negative, a liar, a witch or warlock, false, and not hearing from YAH.
But you must speak what you hear exactly as you hear it.
So know you will be accused, gossiped about, and persecuted for what you say, but say what YAH has given you and keep moving on!
