Accurate predictions are extremely entertaining, like game shows concerning the future, who can guess most accurately what going to happen in September/October of 2014-15 or 16 or after the forth blood moon.
Great earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, are all listed as evidence of LOOKS LIKE IT, fulfilled prophecies. Thousands of so called modern day prophets watch Israel as if it were under a microscope, they are determined to get to be the first to make prophetic headlines.
My kingdom has no problem with people’s fleshly games of chance at predicting the upcoming events, as long as you keep My name out of it! The purpose for these fleshly predictions is to entertain those who will listen, but most people will not listen seriously so My name is added in with a, THUS SAYS THE LORD.
To misquote Me is serious. These fleshly predictions are all based on a (looks like it) approach to My word, not on an actual word from Me. Any remarks from politicians, Kings, dictators, educators, or changes in weather, or natural disasters, or civil disobedience, or wars including horrible attacks against believers, are all miniature platforms for the predictors to proclaim from.
Who and what determines the the list of who’s who’s in the prophetic world. My word is definitely not the determining factor. If My word were used, the majority of so called modern prophets would be labeled false. People who speak in unprovable broad general terms, are not prophets.
No one questioned Peter’s word of knowledge and prophetic word when he said: Ananias, “Why hath Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?” Acts 5:3.
Today’s false prophets make a living from the offerings you give, in hopes that I will come through with what ever the false prophet promises. Year in and year out, gambling believers place their money on what they hope is the winning prophecy. Thousands of believers fall for sayings like, “I keep hearing the number 36. Everyone that gives $36 in the next 36 minutes will receive a hundred fold return.” It is the enemies plan to make a sham of My gifts, hiding the end time truth from the world. There are multitudes of carnal believers who promote these charismatic game shows, and cause the world to mock the true prophets.
Prophecy is real, and a definite gift of My Holy Spirit, but it and the healing gifts have been hijacked by those seeking popularity and money. Why is speaking in tongues and the gift of wisdom, not as popular?
True prophecy is designed to do one thing, PREPARE MY PEOPLE! It is not to wow people, or make money, or build a ministry or a tv show. If it does not prepare you for the end times, by causing you to draw close to Me and “assemble yourselves together, as a body; where you can exhort one another: as you see the end approaching,” it’s not a true prophecy from My Spirit, Hebrews 10:25.
Remember the words may be true and yet not the prophet, so because someone hits it right one time, don’t set him up as a prophet with a TV show. Protect the body by questioning all things openly. If such and such were predicted in My name, and it fails to transpire, call the predictor out on it, ask him or her to repent! “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1.
Instead of letting these sharks continue to steal money from ignorant believers. “preach the word to them; don’t let up, be instant in season, out of season; reprove them, rebuke them, exhort them with all longsuffering, using My word.  For the time will come when many former believers will no longer endure sound doctrine; but continue in their own lusts heaping to themselves teachers, and false prophets, because they have itching ears, and love the game show atmosphere;  They will eventually turn away their ears from the truth all together, and shall believe fables, 2 Timothy 4:2-4.
However in the midst of all this confusion and deception, “do not quench My Spirit.  do not despise prophesying.  But instead prove all things; and hold fast to only that which is accurate,” 1 Thessalonians 5:19-21.
Continue with prophecies, but be sure it’s Me before you say, THUS SAITH THE LORD, and if you are not sure just say: this is not the Lord but I feel like…..
