The reason I said “despise not prophecies,” 1 Thessalonians 5:20, is in the latter days, there would be plenty of reason to despise them.
Already today there are thousands of would-be self-proclaimed prophets flooding the land with a “thus saith the Lord,” speaking words that I never said. They call themselves prophetic, spewing out words that I never said, with no one qualified or appointed to judge their words, 1 Corinthians 14:29.
Eventually you will be tempted to say, I don’t want to hear one more “thus saith the lord!” This happens when you realize that anyone with two eyes and half a brain can say, “God is pleased with you!” “He has a plan for your life!” These are words that can never be tested, judged or challenged. Yet when these words are spoken over one who is living in adultery and when there are people standing by who know it to be the case, it’s pathetic, that this is allowed to continue with no one speaking up.
Why will no one challenges the prophet or his, ‘make everyone feel good,’ words?
My Spirit would never say I AM pleased with one living in adultery, or one who is living a lie. The church is so carnal and asleep, no one screamed out FALSE PROPHET, when millions of books were sold, prophesying the end at Y2K, or that the aligning of the planets would bring great destruction on the planet, and nothing happened.
Instead, the carnal church waits to buy the next prophetic book from the same false prophets. “These fleshly looks like it prophecies, profit no one except the book seller: But the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life and life changing,” John 6:63.
You must understand that a life changing word is not always nice! “Mam, you have had five husbands, and the man you are now living with is not your husband. In this you have spoken truly. When I spoke these words The woman said to Me, Sir, I see and understand that You are a real prophet,” John 4:18-19.
When you hear detailed prophetic words like these coming forth, you know the real deal prophetic has arrived. Get some backbone and protect My church from false prophets and start to vigorously challenge any word that is vague or just plain wrong.
“BELOVED, from now on, DO not put faith in every spirit, but prove (test) the spirits to discover whether they proceed from Me or someone’s flesh; for many false prophets have gone forth into the world and the church needs to call them out,” 1 John 4:1.
Kingdom citizens are wise as serpents and harmless as doves, but not gullible!
