For the Testimony of Jesus (what he has spoken on the inside of you: confirmation) Is the Spirit of Prophecy, (Revelation 19:10).
Many times God has a Word for the people, but because their minds have not been renewed, they cannot receive what Holy Spirit is saying!
From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that He must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, (disapproval, correction and or criticism) saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
I believe that the reason some folks can not receive the prophetic word of God is because they have their own preconceived goals and ideas of what they think your life should be; instead of speaking from the heart of God!
When a person speaks from the heart of the Father it will be a life changing experience. One that person will never forget.
Peter was not speaking from the heart of the Father; but instead it was from his desires to see Christ continue His role in his life and the lives of the disciples!
That was all good and dandy what Jesus was saying He was going away but Peter was not having it! So, he rebuked the Lord telling him no this couldn’t be not knowing what he was saying or doing by hindering the work of Christ!
Peter has just put himself as an enemy of the Lord. But, Jesus having more experience and insight than Peter turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
God wants to renew our minds, motives and our hearts to receive the things of God in this season!
No more walking after the flesh and speaking things out of the flesh realm but surrendering to the plans and the assignments of the Lord!
Jesus refused the words that came from Peter’s flesh that was warring against what God had called Jesus to do!
Jesus refused to listen to false prophetic words of the devil that Peter spoke over his life and his destiny!
Sometimes people, you just have to look the devil in the eyes and say, “No, excuse me, but that is not the plan and the assignment that God has sent me to do in this season!”
Jesus rebuked Peter and His so called prophesy that it was not in his future to go up into Jerusalem to die for the sins of the world!
In this season, you must be like Jesus and say thank you but no thank you devil, because I know the plans that God has for my life plans to prosper me and not to harm me, plans to give me hope and a future with good success! (Jeremiah 29:11)
How would it have been good if Jesus would have listened to Peter and not obey God to go up to Jerusalem and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
People, Satan has many folks he has sent not to help you birth but to kill what God has birthed on the inside of you!
Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand,” (John 10: 27-28).
“21 From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.
22 Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!”
23 But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men,” Matthew 16:21-23.
