The contamination of the prophetic is so widespread, because many were introduced to the prophetic by a corrupt prophet or somebody who was not called to be a prophet.
The methods they were taught and the example they saw were never the proper way of how to operate prophetically. They were given false and misleading teachings that led them to be contaminated also.
I’m finding out that many who are in error, came through the ranks connected to someone that was out of order themselves. Some have been taught to charge for prophesies, to use their gifting, with acts of divination.
They were never introduced to how to walk, live or operate as a prophet, or prophetically, so they just assumed that what they were doing was correct and everybody else was in error.
The grooming of a person who will be used as a prophet or who has the gift of prophecy, takes more than a six month course. From the womb, God begins the process of teaching a prophet about character, integrity, having a relationship, how to hear and know His voice, through first allowing the parents to know that their child is special unto him.
There have been many who were chosen as God’s mouthpieces who came forth through parents who didn’t understand and weren’t in a spiritual condition to understand who they gave birth to.
These children often suffer, because they are on satan’s direct hit list, because of the assignment attached to their lives. Naturally and spiritually, parents who don’t understand the call on someone’s life, can cause them more harm than good.
Prophets who are connected to persons who don’t know their identity, suffer a lot of emotional and mental abuse, because people don’t understand them. They are often falsely accused of working witchcraft, especially when they see bad things and reveal them, and then they come to pass.
I have warned people many times of things and have been attacked verbally and called every name they could when the words come to pass, especially those judgmental words that can’t be reversed by prayer, because they are God established.
The contamination stems from those who have mishandled the prophetic by using it in ungodly and unrighteous ways. No prophet who is truly real, will every allow you to think you can pay for a Word, or that every Word issued from their mouth will be smooth. They will never let you make them a god or an idol or point you to them personally, but they will direct you into forming a relationship with God.
The LORD is now allowing those who have been properly groomed as prophets to come forth and confront and correct the errors that have been established as prophetic protocols in the Body of Christ.
There’s great warfare going on now because of the widespread corruption that is being revealed and destroyed by chosen and proven voices which are sent forth to challenge the false, lying and corrupt prophets.
Those called to correct these wrongs, are hand picked by God and they come bold and fearless, but they possess wisdom and understanding of how to correct the errors and to get those that have walked in error, onto the right course.
You have to know how to help them, without destroying them because of the years of being taught wrong. Knowing how to tear down and rebuild, is not for everyone. Some of you who are saying God has called you to expose false prophets, are nothing more than people on vendettas against prophets, because you was hurt by one.
Even when it comes to correcting, confronting and disciplining, God does that decently and in order.
Remember, He is always concerned about the person’s soul and He will always give you the best way to confront challenge and bring deliverance, without destroying their soul.
Some of you are having a personal war against people, when it is never about you, period.
And prophets, get this, if you become offended because you are rejected and not received, then you are yet in your flesh and carnally, because a true prophet of God knows to just speak the Word, and that a rejection is not a personal attack against them, but it’s a refusal of the person in receiving the Word of the LORD from the vessel sent by God to deliver it.
Some people are not going to receive what comes out your mouth, because they have personal issues with you! Speak and move, that’s my motto!
