For the prophet, many times what they are going through is a sign of what God is doing in the earth. It is also a sign that He is about to bring breakthrough in that area. Not that God does these things to them but that the enemy challenges whatever God is going to do in the earth and they are the first one to proclaim it!
When you think about this, you have to see why the enemy is trying to destroy a whole generation of possible prophets with the spirit of witchcraft The Greek word for sorcery is (Strong’s G5331 φαρμακεία pharmakeía (from pharmakeuō, to”administer drugs”) – Witchcraft is just the opposite of true prophecy.
It looks similar at times but is from another spirit. It is manipulation to bring about an expected end that results ultimately in death You can laugh if you want to but we have Harry Potter to thank for much of what we are seeing right now in young adults.
God has called this generation to prophesy to the institutions of this world! He has called them for such a time as this! Let’s start showing them what the true power of God is and stop being afraid of it in our gatherings, before the powers of darkness fill that void in them, that hunger for the deeper things of God.
The reason they hunger for this is, because they were created for this destiny that God has created them for and this power of God and these gifts are needed for what they are about to do! Let’s point them to the right source of power! The Power of the Holy Spirit!
It is time to STOP BEING ASHAMED OF HIM AND HIS GIFTS!
We look like fools anyway, we may as well be fools for Christ!
