Touch Not God’s Anointed or His Prophets
We read many times throughout The Bible that The LORD’s People were oppressed, controlled or manipulated by the enemy.
Their adversaries continually pursued them and tried to destroy their character and their anointing. In some instances they even wanted to kill them.
History is repeating itself, as there are people who want to silence believers’ voices and shut down their ministries. There are spirits of jealousy, envy and hatred that are rampant throughout our land.
In The Book of Genesis, we see Joseph’s father who favored him and gave him a coat of many colors. This was a metaphor of The LORD placing His favor as well as a prophetic mantle upon his life.
His brothers hated him because he was highly favored, and when he shared his dreams with them, they hated him all the more.
They threw him into a ditch, took his coat of my many colors, put the blood of goats on it, and took it to the father so that the father would think that ferocious animals devoured and killed him. They then sold him as a slave to the Midianites.
During his time in Egypt, Potiphar’s wife accused him of molesting her and she took his robe to try to prove this. This was the second time a garment was taken from Joseph.
Potiphar knew in his heart that Joseph would not do such a thing, but he put him in prison to honor his wife.
While in prison, The LORD used Joseph to interpret the dreams of those in the prison, as well as Pharoah’s dreams.
Some of you have also been despised, or falsely accused, and the enemy is trying to make you retaliate against those who have wronged you.
If you stay faithful to The LORD, you will receive honor and favor with God and man just as Joseph did.
The LORD will bring justice to those who tried to harm you. Joseph was eventually made the Vizier which is the highest official in Ancient Egypt to serve the king.
Pharaoh gave him authority over everything and gave him the name Zaphnath-Paaneah which means “Revealer of Mysteries.”
If you’ve been persecuted, as Joseph was, trust Jesus to bring justice to the situation.
In The Book of Daniel, Chapter 3, Daniel’s friends, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, refused to bow down to King Nebuchadnezzar’s image of gold. and thus he commanded that they be thrown into the fiery furnace and ordered the guards to turn the furnace up seven times hotter.
As they were in the fire, a fourth man was seen with them whom the guards said looked like the son of God.
The fire was so hot that it actually killed the men who threw them in, but miraculously it didn’t harm Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego.
The LORD says, “Trust Me when you are in the fiery furnace, because I AM in there with you.”
The LORD says, “Don’t bend or bow when the Nebechenezars try to dominate and control you. Refuse to submit to anything that is contrary to My Word.
I AM the God who liberates and sets you free from all chaos in your life. You will be vindicated from anything that was falsely spoken against you.
Be careful not to criticize or belittle ministries who you don’t understand.”
Last night I had a dream, and int it I had a huge broken mirror. There were two people alongside of me and I asked them if they knew who broke the mirror.
I knew that it was they who did it, but they wouldn’t admit it. In the morning when I looked up the interpretation in a dream dictionary, I found that the mirror represented an image and reflection of ourselves.
I knew that the interpretation was, that those two people had fractured souls (emotions), and they were trying to destroy my image.
In The Book of John, we read about Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. In the very next chapter, we see that the religious people wanted to kill him again.
Be careful who you allow in your inner circle. There are people who are jealous and envious of you and want to see you destroyed.
They have become lukewarm and are listening to the whispers of the evil one. The enemy wants to kill you and he will use people to destroy the anointing on your life.
He will do anything to keep you from prospering and growing spiritually. Be careful not to criticize the prophets or belittle ministers because you don’t understand them.
“Touch not God’s anointed, and do His prophets no harm,” says The LORD.
“Do not touch My anointed ones, and do My prophets no harm.” 1 Chronicles 16:22.
“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne, mercy and truth go before Your face.” Psalm 89:14.
“Bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.” Luke 6:28.
“Beloved, don’t be obsessed with taking revenge, but leave that to God’s righteous justice. For the Scriptures say: “Vengeance is mine, and I will repay,” says The LORD.” Romans 12:19 TPT.

Just yesterday morning, before i even saw this post, I got talking with a colleague & I told her all those lying against me to destroy my personality will be greatly punished by my God as vengeance belongs to God. Also, that God said touch not my anointed ones & do my prophets no harm. This is just the confirmation. Thank you Holy spirit! Thank you God’s vessel; ELAINE!
3 times the Lord sent this message to me in one day. This post was last confirmation. I have prayed for my enemies and put them in God’s hands
While we should not touch God’s anointed and prophets, we should not overlook the old Testament context of this scripture, where the “anointed” was a synonym for kings and Levitical priests, who were literally anointed as with oil, and where the prophets had a special role in communicating the word of the Lord before the later outpouring of the Holy Spirit enabled all God’s people to hear from Him and to prophesy. [This is not to deny the New Testament calling of the prophet, which also has its own context.]
We should be also aware of another scripture that
“.. many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.” [Matthew 24:11]
They will be the first to misuse the first scripture, when called out.
