My heart is exceedingly sorrowful this morning concerning the gross misuse of the calling of a Prophet.
I am grieved, because it is getting so out of hand, the careless ways people are operating and calling themselves Prophets.
They are taking a gift that was established by YESHUA and making a mockery and a shame out of it, by carelessly trying to operate in an area they are not called to, or have not be trained and disciplined for.
When your character is distorted with sin and iniquity, or you have unresolved issues, especially if you have been hurt and wounded, you have to be careful that those things don’t intermingle with the things of God.
There are far too many renegade Prophets running around without the supervision of the Holy Spirit, prophesying out of their own vain imaginations and making a lying spectacle of themselves.
How is God talking so much to you, but He has not corrected your untamed, undisciplined spirit?
What voice are you hearing, that has not corrected your errors, nor shown you that your spirit is wild and unruly?
We are throwing the name “Prophet” around and yet we have not been taught or trained in the ways of God. Neither have we sat and listened to the wisdom of those more mature in the ways of a Prophet.
Many are saying they need no accountability concerning their calling and are running around causing chaos and confusion, because their words are spoken from a fleshly place.
Some of you are running around until you find some Prophet who operates in the same unruly uncontrolled spirit like your own, to validate you in your wrong doings.
Some trawl the internet until they find something that will agreed with their imaginations, then they use it to justify their own errors.
Some are operating out of zeal; some out of pride; some out of their flesh; some out of carnality. Some are speaking out of bitterness; some out of anger; some out of their own imaginings.
True Prophets don’t just release Words when they want to and they definitely don’t walk around all day, seven days a week, just prophesying.
When God sends a Prophet or releases them to speak a Word, it is because there’s a reason for it and it has nothing to do with trying to make people bow, or be afraid of you.
Some of you who say you are Prophets, are operating in a form of divination and practicing witchcraft.
When you use the gift of God to attempt to control or intimidate people, or to speak revenge against people, then you are operating in another spirit.
Some of you try to justify your evil intents by taking certain scriptures out of the Word to validate your wickedness, but God sees your heart and the spirit in which you speak.
My greatest irritation (on Facebook) are all these wild “Prophets” who are running here there and everywhere, saying God is sending them, or speaking to them, and all their “Prophetic Words” are full of rage against the Body of Christ, because they say people are against them.
I have asked God to deal with the Prophets of Baal and Jezebel who are causing havoc and trouble in the Body of Christ.
I see so much damage that has occurred because of wayward, uncontested, out of order persons who say God has called them to be a Prophet, yet they operate outside the Word of God!
Listen, if you come within the congregation with what you say is a Word from the Lord, we have a right to judge the Word.
Too many are listening to persons who are out of control themselves and they are prophesying others into deception, giving them the assumption that what they are doing is of God.
Are all prophets? That is the major question of the day!
I told God last night, I am tired BOSS, of having to clean up the mess that other people are creating by walking around here calling themselves Prophets, when they are speaking from another spirit, and hearing another voice, and won’t listen to sound reasoning, or accept words of correction from those more mature who don’t want them to be damaged.
Listen people, not everybody is trying to hurt you, but there are truly some good leaders who want to help you! We confront the issues, because we don’t want you to damage or destroy somebody else’s life.
The greatest anointing upon my life is the anointing to listen and learn! If I lose that anointing, then I lose the ability to sit and be taught in a more excellent way, in how to walk in what I’m called to do.
Yes, we have God, but YESHUA also gave gifts to the Body of Christ in the form of leaders who are to help us to grow and be whom He has made us to be!
I sat at the feet and served a Prophet who was mature, full of wisdom, and spiritually skillful in walking as a Prophet!
