A prophet does not have a ministry — he or she is a ministry — God is their ministry — the rest follows: “As The LORD wills!”
Never invite an authentic prophet if you are not ready to invite God into your church, house or life.
The authentic prophet will serve to be instrumental for God to expose all you have chosen to hide, no matter how deeply you have buried what you hope never to be found.
The truth is always exposed and known where a prophet is present, even when you think they do not know — they know! Because they walk in the Spirit where they see the invisible, hear what is whispered in secret, and discern what has been hidden behind a cloak of mere pretense.
Some may think that the silence of a prophet is the sign of their masquerading act remaining undetected, and their secrets being secured. When in reality, it only speaks of the integrity of a man or a woman unwilling to bring to the light what God has not yet commanded for them to expose!
Authentic prophets will always honor God in following as He leads, and obey as He commands. They walk in harmony with the rhythms of The Father’s Heart.
