The Prophetic Movement, once again, is currently going through a shift as The LORD raises Prophets who are less afraid of man’s opinions — than they are of Gods opinion!
We have seen Words that highlight many prophetic voices hesitating to release Words for fear of ‘getting it wrong’ in man’s eyes.
I include myself in this — not often — but yes, I’ve held back on the odd occasion — although with age . . . 😃
Perhaps one of the best pieces of advice I was ever given was this —
- If you’re not certain of a Word, then sit on it for a few days.
- If it fades from memory it’s probably not ready for release (yet), but if it stays near the top of your memory, then ask The Holy Spirit about the timing of release.
- When He says “Now!”, then release it without fear of man but with a reverential fear of God!
Either way, The Holy Spirit gave you the Word, and The Holy Spirit will likewise let you know when and where to release it.
Yes, I test Words with trusted Prophet friends — but at the end of the day — I only really listen to The Holy Spirit’s still small leading voice.
We hear Him to receive The Word and we must hear Him when it comes to releasing it.
Without His say so, a Word is just a Word. With His say so, a Word is a Prophecy to be given as, where, and when He says.
