I’ve held this post in draft status for several months, waiting for the correct timing to release this. I felt this morning, it was fine to go ahead.
Everyone, please remember to keep all those with the gift of prophecy in your prayers. We are to show the characteristics of Christ to all of God’s children. Never ever turn against them in anger or judgment. God knows their hearts and he is the only one that knows the truth.
We have been told many prophecies that never came true. This does not mean that they were trying to deceive anyone. Many truly love the Lord, but they did not have correct interpretation, timing or audience.
Please pray that all who sent out false prophecies repent. The important thing to remember is that we need to be ready for eternity at all times. In an instant, we will either be at peace or torment for ever and ever.
Some with the gift or prophecy will try to ‘back peddle’ or tell us that prayer changed the outcome. Any prophecy that doesn’t happen, never came from the Lord. This does not mean that the prophecy came from demons either! Sometimes emotions can get in the way of the truth. God never changes, he is Holy and he never lies. He also never tells someone to Sin for the purpose of accomplishing his work.
9 “When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not imitate the detestable customs of those nations.
10 No one among you is to make his son or daughter pass through the fire, practice divination, tell fortunes, interpret omens, practice sorcery,
11 cast spells, consult a medium or a familiar spirit, or inquire of the dead.
12 Everyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord, and the Lord your God is driving out the nations before you because of these detestable things.
13 You must be blameless before the Lord your God.
14 Though these nations you are about to drive out listen to fortune-tellers and diviners, the Lord your God has not permitted you to do this.
15 “The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to him.
16 This is what you requested from the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said, ‘Let us not continue to hear the voice of the Lord our God or see this great fire any longer, so that we will not die!’
17 Then the Lord said to me, ‘They have spoken well.
18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. I will put My words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him.
19 I will hold accountable whoever does not listen to My words that he speaks in My name.
20 But the prophet who dares to speak a message in My name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods—that prophet must die.’
21 You may say to yourself, ‘How can we recognize a message the Lord has not spoken?’
22 When a prophet speaks in the Lord’s name, and the message does not come true or is not fulfilled, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.
1 John 4:1-6 The Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of Error
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
2 This is how you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit who confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God.
3 But every spirit who does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist; you have heard that he is coming, and he is already in the world now.
4 You are from God, little children, and you have conquered them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
5 They are from the world. Therefore what they say is from the world, and the world listens to them.
6 We are from God. Anyone who knows God listens to us; anyone who is not from God does not listen to us. From this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of deception.
1 Thessalonians 5:20-21
Don’t despise prophecies, 21 but test all things. Hold on to what is good.
