This post is about deciphering prophetic words. I believe this is important in this season as we move forward as a church into the new church era. I pray after reading this you will learn something new about the prophetic.
Definition of Decipher – verb succeed in understanding, interpreting, or identifying (something).
People are confused
The church is obsessed with the gift of prophesy. I don’t get emails or comments from people wanting to be intercessors or an evangelist to win souls for the Lord. No, pretty much 99.9% want to be a prophet. They want a prophetic school . After speaking with them I’ve drawn some conclusions so I thought I would share it here so that you know too.
(1) Most people who say they want the gift of prophesy don’t actually want the gift of prophesy what they want is to hear God speak to them.
(2) Hearing God speak is NOT a spiritual gift. It is your right as a child of God. Once you have the Holy Spirit, you can hear God. Perhaps that’s the training you really need? I’ve done 2 classes already and now there is a series that has already begun. If you want to join in, you need to go over here and subscribe to the mailing list and you’ll get all the teaching on that Hearing God Speak
(3) People believe that if they have dreams and visions and can see in the spirit realm that means they are a prophet. That is incorrect. Those are gifts of the spirit, prophets have these gifts but that doesn’t mean you are a prophet. The prophet Samuel wasn’t a dreamer and didn’t really have visions, God just spoke directly to Him.
(4) I’m a prophet because another prophet told me so. No, just because God speaks to you doesn’t mean you are a prophet. Most people mislabel other people’s gifting (read #3). God needs to tell you that Himself, then someone else confirms it. This isn’t the type of calling you play with because there’s a lot of persecution with this. I’m not talking about the gift but the office.
(5) I know people who I would rank as a level 10 seer in the spirit that are not prophets. Remember prophesy talks of future events, not present or past event. Present or past events is another gift (Word of knowledge), prophesy is future. Just because you can read someone’s phone number and address to them doesn’t mean you are a prophet. That would be present information not future. You need to see the future events PLUS they need to be accurate.
(6) I’m sure you’ve heard the term new level, new devil. Well, there’s a lot of spiritual attacks associated with this. It comes with the territory which is why I would caution anyone in taking on a title of “Prophet or Prophetess” until you are 100% sure. The attacks come with the job. If you were a criminal and afraid of getting caught would you kill the person who the school administrator or the police officer? Being a cop is a dangerous job. It comes with the territory. This is the same thing. That’s the only reason I am letting you know the minute you take that title on, get ready!
(7) The true prophets usually had a pretty rough life. The enemy usually knows who you are in the spirit before you even know who you are. So they’ve had it rough since birth. That’s why when the prophet steps into the office and the calling they can handle the attacks because they’ve been fighting their whole life.
Now let’s dive into deciphering prophetic words:
Is the prophecy biblical?
This is the entry level test. What are the scriptures being used in the prophetic word. You need to read them and you need to know if what was said is in fact biblical. If not, then you have to pass on it. (2 Timothy 3:16)
Discern the spirit behind the word
1 John 4:1 “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
There are 3 different “spirit sources” meaning type of spirit that would produce a prophetic word. One is the Spirit of God, the other is the enemy/devil (2 Corinthians 11:13-15, John 10:10) and the third is the human spirit (Ezekiel 13:3). Sometimes it is very difficult to tell the source immediately but the bible tells us how to identify when a spirit is from the Lord. Revelation 19:10 says the spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus Christ. That means that if a prophet/prophetic intercessor/or anyone who gives the prophetic word does not lead you back to the Lord then it’s not from God. It has to point back to Jesus Christ and developing your relationship with Him. If the prophetic word you are receiving from the same prophet is always about your flesh – your money, your business, your car, your marriage, your kids, you, you, you, while it may feel good in the moment you have to always ask yourself the question “Is this leading me closer to the Lord?” Fleshly messages that only feed the flesh, every time and all the time are not from the spirit of God. It’s not that God doesn’t want to bless you but if all you hear from the same person is the same type of message there is a high possibility they are not prophesying from the Spirit of God.
Many will say test the spirit of the word, the best time to do that is before you read, watch or listen to the word. It’s a simple prayer:
Holy Spirit, put a filter over my eyes and my ears, show me if this word is for me, show me the spirit behind this word if it is from you, the enemy or this person’s flesh or spirit, allow me to flow in discerning of spirits right now so that I will not be deceived, in Jesus name, Amen.
That’s it. You don’t do it after, you do it before. When you are drinking water do you filter it after you drink it or before? You shouldn’t be consuming any prophetic word before you pray on the Holy Ghost filter. And then when you are done watching that video you will clearly know where that word came from. Do not be surprised if you can’t even click play, you just look at the persons picture and immediately know “No, thank you!”
The Prophetic Specialty
Did you know that within the calling or prophetic gifting people have “specialties” or paths that God has given them a great desire to prophesy in that area. The same thing happens with prophetic intercession. Let me explain…inevitably if you have a prayer group that meets weekly and it is not targeted or directed at a specific subject you will notice that the intercessors will come in with the same type of prayers or burden’s each week. So there’s going to be one that always wants to pray for the government, one will always want to pray for the church in general, one is always praying for families. This is what I mean when I say specialty. They don’t even know why they are always called to praying for the same thing but they feel this deep calling and burden to always pray for that. The prophetic gifting works the same. This doesn’t mean that they can’t switch and prophecy about something different but you’ll notice they mostly stick with the same area.
Why you need to know this? It is highly unlikely that someone who is a prophet called to the government will start offering personal prophetic words to individuals on their website. That is not the track God has them on. So, if you want to know what God is saying to a specific area the best prophet to get the information from is one called to that arena. How will you know this? Just read 5-10 of their prophetic words or watch their videos and ask yourself who are they speaking to? Who is the audience? That is how you know. There are prophets that only prophecy in their church, some to their country, some in their community, some are worldwide, some are government, others are to the church in general. It you pay attention to what they are writing and saying you can see where God has called them . Jeremiah 1:5, God specifically tells him he is called to be a prophet to the nations. Micah prophesied to Israel and Judah. John in the new testament wrote the Revelation and that is to the nations. Judges 18 you see the story of a priest who worked for only one person and then went to work with the tribe of Dan. So the same thing happens today, people are generally given an area where God calls them to prophesy. It’s not that they cannot prophesy other things but you will see them being more effective and used mightily by God when they stick with the area where He has called them. Besides, we can’t all the doing the same thing.
The Gift vs the Office
There is a very big difference and you can tell when you meet someone who walks in the office immediately. They are generally bold and super accurate. You can take courses to teach you how to prophesy and they throw you out of the nest and force you to prophecy over people until you are comfortable enough to do it. I’m not even sure if that is a gift but then again the word says we can all prophecy (1 Corinthians 14:31) so I guess there is nothing wrong with that. I wouldn’t want to be making a life altering decision though on the word of someone who had to go to school to learn how to operate in a gift. When someone has the true gift of prophecy they don’t need to go to school to learn it, it’s already a part of who they are. It is organic and you can tell. They generally have a close relationship with the Lord and that’s how they know what they know. You can have a gift of prophecy, but that doesn’t mean you are called to the office of the prophet. Having the office of the prophet means this is your main calling and that is what you do. You travel around and prophecy. You can be a prophetic intercessor but the main gift is intercession and not prophecy. However, you can’t be a prophet without intercession. If you have the gift or the office you will know… By their fruit you shall know them. When you walk in the office of a prophet you are basically saying I’m God’s mouthpiece in the earth. That is a very tall order! Therefore, this means that you must have encounters with Jesus, The Father and the Holy Spirit. How can you say you are the mouthpiece of God if you never had an encounter with the one you are speaking for? This is not possible. If someone is walking in the office, listen for “the encounter” in how they receive prophetic words. Yes, they can still get it through dreams, visions and other ways but there MUST be encounters somewhere along the line. When you say you are walking in the office of the prophet then expect to have spiritual attacks associated with that. God will enable you to handle it because you will special grace given to you in warfare for that office. Notice Jeremiah had an encounter and was specifically called to the office; however, John was caught up in a vision (Revelation 1) but was never called to the office of the prophet. They both prophesied but one is a prophet and the other one is not.
Asking for Money to give you a prophesy
I’ve already written about this and you can find it here. Prophetic Words, Sowing Seed & Giving Money
Gloom and Doom vs Cotton Candy
If you look at any of the prophets in the bible, especially Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Isaiah, you will see that there was a lot of gloom and doom but there were also many blessings spoken as well. You can’t be a true prophet of God and never have a word of correction to the church or an individual. It’s hard to do and not pleasant because every one wants to deliver the good word and not the bad. But there is no way you can be truly hearing from God if you only give “cotton candy prophecies”. God chastens those He loves so at some point there is going to be a rebuke. The flip side is just as true, the judgment prophets and that is all they talk about….bad stuff, bad stuff and more bad stuff. It’s almost like they take joy out of hearing people will suffer. I’ve never understood that and it makes me question just as much if they are hearing from God or not. There has to be some balance there. Even though Jeremiah prophesies some terrible things we still have so many scriptures in that book that was hopeful and uplifting. Any true prophet will have both.
The Public Rebuke vs the Private Rebuke
One of the joys of sharing what God is saying in this forum is that I can openly speak because you don’t know me and I don’t know you. I’m not calling you out and the word speaks for itself. If you get offended then you should stop and examine why it bothers you since we don’t even know each other. Is it condemnation or is it conviction? Only you will know the truth to the question if you are guilty of what the post says. However, in a public setting when I am face to face with someone if God shows me something bad I will pull them to the side and tell them in private. I don’t think God wants us to humiliate people in public. I always think of that woman caught in adultery that He told everyone if you are sinless cast the first stone (John 8:3-11). He never condoned what she did because He told her to go and sin no more but He also is not into publicly embarrassing and humiliating people. Except for the money changers table, yeah that time! LOL It was a whole group of people and they were all doing it and He was angry. If some prophet calls you out a public embarrasses you by telling your personal business to a room full of people, that is not God!
Can your prophetic word get stolen?
Yes. Here’s what you need to know when prophecy is spoken over you this is what God wants for you. But there is a looooooong road between when you receive it and when it is fulfilled, especially if it’s a big prophecy regarding your destiny. If the word is spoken in public and those around have demonic or familiar spirits attached to them then they will attack that word. You go through a very difficult time to see if fulfilled. Road blocks, traffic jams, distractions, financial lack, sickness, oppression, delays, counterfeits, false prophetic words spoken against it. Many many things and if you are not careful you end up forfeiting the prophetic word. You start thinking that it will never happen so you give up on it. What do you call that? Stolen. My general rule of thumb is that if it is a really big word I pull people aside and tell them because I don’t want to just let something like that out in the atmosphere.
I’ll share a personal testimony. I went to a prayer breakfast once for Haiti because I did a lot of mission work in that country. At the breakfast I had to share some testimonies/God stories of what God was doing through the ministry there, this is why I was invited. Then the emcee for the event a little later on said that God showed him that someone in the room was about to receive a new spiritual gift. He began to describe the gift because he said he had never seen anything like it before. There were about 300 people in the room but I felt like it was me. I never said “I receive it Lord or I claim it in Jesus name” or anything like that but I just felt in my spirit it was me. He never said who was getting the gift. Well, I said nothing and the event continued. Near to the end of the event we all had to get up and intercede for the nation all in one voice so as I close my eyes ready to intercede I see slithering across the room around the tables me a giant snake! This is in the spirit now. And I thought to myself “Oh great here we go!” So while everyone else was praying for the nation there I was in warfare against this spirit. The head of it was bigger and taller than me! It was that large. And it was just there for me and I knew this had to do with that prophecy. So there I was battling this thing. Then the prayer ended and we were all getting ready to leave at least 4 different people came up to me and said “I think you are the one getting the spiritual gift”. I was thinking in my mind no kidding ! I’d like to know which one of you sent the giant snake! Then this little girl came over and handed me a book and then pointed to her mom over on the opposite end of the room and she said her mom wanted me to have the book. It’s about a voodoo high priestess turned Christian.
So I get home and this wave of tiredness comes over me and I go take a nap and God gives me a dream (that’s why He put me to sleep) I have my handbag over my shoulder and it has double straps. Then this woman comes up to me and points to one of the straps on the handbag and I see that it is tearing away from the handbag. Like it had been cut with a knife and the threads were showing that were barely holding the strap in place. Luckily there were 2 straps so it didn’t fall to the ground and then she says to me “I did that” and then I wake up. I knew instantly that this was the attempt to steal the gift. But in my conservative Presbyterian mind (at the time) I’m thinking to myself there is no way that is possible. Where is that in scripture? How do you steal someone’s spiritual gift? But I was sure that it was possible because I just went into warfare hours earlier because of this. Immediately, I pick up the book the little girl handed to me at the event and I just felt compelled to read it. I began reading and didn’t put it down until I finished the entire book all the way into the wee hours of the next morning.
What was interesting is that in one chapter the author had a paragraph where she describes how witches and warlocks love going to conferences and churches, especially when there is a prophet present, and they STEAL things in the spirit. My mouth fell open. I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t know that was even possible until this occurred. So even though I didn’t have a scripture to support this thing, I experienced it and now here is an ex voodoo priestess confirming that they can actually do this and God gave me a dream that they were trying to do this but failed because I went into warfare immediately.
I’m telling you this story so that you understand where you are when you receive the prophetic word and who is around is key. There are many people that run to and fro to conferences “to get a word from the prophet” and then they see absolutely nothing happen. This could be the reason.
I’m sensitive in the spirit so I can pick up things easily and I went into warfare over it immediately. Don’t be so quick to ask for prophetic words in public. These people are quoting bible verses, praying in tongues and have their hands raised as if they are worshiping God but they have a completely different agenda. You cannot know based on their action you have to discern it by the spirit. There are several witches on YouTube prophesying over people and they have huge followings. Be careful. If you get a check in your spirit, stop watching them. Shortly after you will find others will call them out and that will be your confirmation.
I did get the gift about 2 years after that happened but I also was not friends with any of these people or had them around me constantly where I had to keep battling. They didn’t know me or even where to find me. I was just a random person at a prayer breakfast. Plus I’m not the type to walk around telling people what has been prophesied over me. That’s between me and God.
I’ve already written an entire post on his subject and I will link it here. These are dangerous. These are people that have the prophetic gifting that are just picking up on people’s desires and repeating it to them. Thereby causing the person to think this is a word from the Lord except it’s actually their own desires being repeated to them. Unless you have your desires completely aligned with those of Christ, I wouldn’t trust that if I were you. How will you know if you received one of these? The prophesy won’t happen.
Prophesying from Desires
This one is even more dangerous than the soulish prophecy. This is when the prophet is actually prophesying their own desires (Jeremiah 23:16). God never told them anything. They are just telling you what they want to happen. The terrible thing with this one is that they may truly have the gift of prophecy but they have allowed their desire to over take them and they believe they are hearing from God but it is actually their desire they are prophesying to you. Let me ask you a question, how many of those people prophesying about marriages in the kingdom of God are actually married? hmmm If you discern the spirit from the beginning, by praying the prayer at the beginning of the post, you will pick it up. Same thing with the ones prophesying about money constantly, they need your money! They are actually prophesying from their own desire and lack! You have to pay attention to this because these people will lead you astray. These “desire prophets” are generally coming with the same message, centered around the same thing….what they desire.
Over a decade ago I had a group of friends I would hang out with regularly, 5 singles. They asked me one day to pray for them to get married. After all, I am the one with the prophetic intercession gift so for sure it’s going to happen. I told them I’m already praying but what I tell them may not be from the Lord because we were all so very close, I love them and I want for them, what they want for themselves. They were shocked at my response. But I tell you the truth from way back then I knew, your desires can cloud what you hear from God.
Once you start to choose sides, and have desires for a specific outcome, it can drown out the authentic voice of the Lord. You can want something so bad that every dream, every vision, every word from the Lord says Yes and it still isn’t God! It is best to remain neutral. If you don’t care either way with the outcome you have a better chance at hearing clearly. The minute your desire takes over…watch out!
Yes! It’s not their word, they got it from someone else and it sounded really good so they went ahead and rewrote it or recorded it as if it was their word and presented it as “God told me”. How will you know? Well, it will completely lack anointing. When the one who has been in the presence of God gives a message you can tell. There is a certain anointing that comes with the message and you know it is authentic, original. When it is a regurgitated message (1) they’ll publish it after the authentic original word (Youtube Algorithm will tell on them) and you know what it sounds like? (2) take a glass, fill it with juice then drink it till a 1/4 is left, then fill the glass with water then drink it. How does it taste? Does it taste like the original juice? That’s how those prophetic words sound! Watered down. No anointing. Because it was never their word from God. They saw it somewhere and repeated it.
30-31 “I’ve had it with the ‘prophets’ who get all their sermons secondhand from each other. Yes, I’ve had it with them. They make up stuff and then pretend it’s a real sermon.
32 “Oh yes, I’ve had it with the prophets who preach the lies they dream up, spreading them all over the country, ruining the lives of my people with their cheap and reckless lies.
“I never sent these prophets, never authorized a single one of them. They do nothing for this people—nothing!” God’s Decree.
Many times I will see other prophetic words and they are from the Lord, I can tell. But I can’t take their word and present it as God said when He never said it to me He said it to them. I can share their word and/or make reference to it. But if I take it as my own it will lack the anointing of the Holy Spirit in that person.
Don’t worry, the YouTube algorithm and Google will tell on them. Just check the time and date stamp and then listen for the watered down juice.
God CAN give the same message through two or more people so that there is confirmation BUT you will notice there is a way that He speaks to each person. Tone, the symbolism, the language used will be different, not the same. Same message different symbolism.
When the prophet prophesies a message that was for them only
You can be sure this is going to happen when they are quickly posting words when God just told it to them minutes ago! Listen, when you are in a relationship with the Lord some of the things He’ll tell you is for you. It’s not for everyone, just you! Again, if God just gave them the information they didn’t take the time to pray, process the word, ASK GOD if the message is for them or for others too before they start sharing it. They end up revealing to a whole bunch of people what God is actually only doing for and in them. Remember when the prophet Nathan went to tell David about his sin and David thought Nathan was talking about someone else? Nathan had to tell him “I’m talking about you!” (2 Samuel 12) Same with God. Sometimes the word is for the prophet only. When God gives me a word of rebuke, correction or judgement, I have to stand before that word first. I have to examine myself first before I can bring that to anyone else. The key is to always ask the Lord if the word is to be shared with others before you share it. Why the rush???
The one who over shares. Tells everything God is saying to them. Let me ask you, if you had a best friend and everything you told them got published in the daily mail, national enquirer, would you keep talking to them? Sometimes God just wants to share something with you just because you are close to each other. It’s not to be shared. Sometimes the Lord will tell me something just to make me aware of a situation but it is not to be shared with anyone. Yes we keep secrets! The Lord has to know He can trust you with information. Sometimes prophets and prophetic intercessors alike share things that really should just be prayed about. They start revealing private things about people. Giving away strategies to the enemy based on what God showed them. When Moses went up the mountain for the 10 commandments do you think it took 40 days to carve them? No! I don’t think so. It was probably on the final day God just gave Him the tablets and said “give them this” LOL These old prophets knew how to keep secrets. Enoch, walked with God and God took him. Enoch went straight into heaven and never said a word to any of us! LOL Seriously, he must know tons of stuff in order to be translated to heaven. Come on, think about it! Did he share any of it? Nope. Not a word. Secrets.
We’ve taken on this whole worldly social media spirit that says we should share everything! This is the problem.
I wrote a post once based on an encounter I had with the Lord. It wasn’t for me personally it was for the body of Christ. Spent 4 hours writing looking up scriptures and the day I was to publish it, as I always do, I asked the Lord if He was happy with it. He said that He showed me that just so that I would know. I had to delete the whole thing. But that taught me a lesson, now I don’t even start writing until I find out “can I share this with everyone?” Otherwise, it is not getting written – it is between me and God.
Prophesy not in season, for you.
Some words are from the Spirit of God and will come to pass but we are not all in the same season. You need to know the season you are in. Every prophetic word has timing associated with it. If it’s not your season it won’t happen for you but it may happen for others (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8). And, you will know the word was from the Lord because people generally will come back and testify concerning a word. It was just not your season to get that even though you wanted it.
The Prophet that used to be a psychic or a practicing witch
Hmmm. I want to make it very clear that Jesus is in the business of healing, delivering and overturning what the enemy has done and using it for good. Yes, He specializes in this.
However, if you are receiving the prophetic word from someone who used to be a practicing witch or a psychic it means that they are accustomed to using familiar spirits and divination to get information. Yes, they were working with evil spirits before they got saved. Therefore, there has to be some process of healing and deliverance that happened prior to them tapping into the prophetic with the Holy Spirit. There has to be a process. You don’t become a Christian today and jump into giving prophetic words to people WITHOUT deliverance. Where did the spirits go that they used to get the information from? Do you think they just packed up and left town? No. That person has to be able to tell you clearly how they got delivered from those spirits. Yes. If they don’t recall or they think the spirits went away the minute they got save, they may very well be operating under the same spirits. You can easily pick them up too. If they were charging money for their psychic business these are the same ones that are there charging you for prophetic words. Then they will try to convince you that it is now the Holy Spirit. No sir. No ma’am. Something has to look different. You can’t be operating the same way and then label it differently. What change?
I cannot tell you how many of them are on YouTube prophesying over people and I am still picking up their “witchcraft static” I don’t know what else to call it other than I still pick up that spirit on them before they even say they used to practice that. It’s still on them. They may be well-intentioned but they need to be delivered from familiar spirits and a diving spirit before they can prophesy over anyone. The minute you find out they used to be involved and practicing any level of witchcraft you need to hear the full deliverance story. How did they get rid of those spirits?
Remember not because they give accurate information means the source is God. I remember once I was watching someone live and I had seen her videos twice, she started to recommend this website for people to get information on numbers if they keep seeing numbers. I had never heard of this site before so while she is on her live I start looking up the site. The site belonged to a psychic. I went into the live chat and gave her the benefit of the doubt thinking maybe she didn’t realize it. Only to have her tell me that she knew but she found the information very useful so here she was sending all these thousands of followers over to a psychic. Yes, she did! And even after I told her she kept doing it. So then I had to be the one telling people in the chat that this was not a Christian site and the bible clearly states we should not be consulting these people. These people that sit under that ministry will now pick up familiar spirits because she is getting her information from a familiar spirit. Very dangerous.
Daily Prophetic Words
Sigh. Let me start by saying this, I followed 2 people that share daily prophetic words because I was curious. What could they possibly have to share with others that God was telling them everyday? The truth is both of these people didn’t share anything bad, it was really good, solid because it was biblical. For those of you who think there is no way God is speaking that much, that’s not true He speaks everyday, several times a day depending on how much you are listening… the Bible.
So, what’s wrong with it? I’m only speaking about the 2 that I followed for a little while
(1) It’s a general word so some days may be for you some days may not. So everyday you have to decipher if this is for you or not. Why waste your time? Just go to God directly and get the sure word that IS for you.
(2) If I need to consult a prophet every single day to tell me what God is saying, that says a lot about my relationship with the Lord. What does it say? I don’t have a relationship with the Lord so I need a mediator (a go between) to tell me what God is saying. Do you know why Jesus Christ came? So that the Israelites (and the rest of the world) would no longer need to go to the priest to enter the Holy of Holies to make sacrifice for them and have contact with God. When He died on the cross it said the veil that separated the people from having access to the Holy of Holies (the most Holy Place and the Presence of God) was torn. (Matthew 27:51) He tore down the barrier thereby giving ALL of us access. So if God came to earth as a man (Jesus), sacrificed His life so that we would no longer need a middle man to reach Him, why on earth would I go find myself a middle man on a daily basis?
Let’s look at what this would look like in a real world situation. Jesus is your Husband (the bridegroom), whether you are a man or a woman. (Revelation 21:2, 2 Corinthians 11:2) So every day you get up and you go to the next door neighbor to find out what your Husband is saying. I thought you lived with your Husband? Why do you need the next door neighbor to tell you daily what your Husband is saying? Ask Him yourself. He’s right there in your house with you. Unless, you are in an estranged relationship with your Husband or you’re not actually married to Him. He doesn’t live there with you.
Something is wrong. The hardest people to get saved are the people who already think they are saved. <—read it again.
How do I know this? I was one of them. It’s like a fish in the fish bowl, do you think the fish thinks he’s in the bowl or does he think you’re the one in the bowl? You’re on the inside but you’re still on the outside.
There are many in the church right now that are not saved. Many and just imagine if you thought you were saved and someone walked up to you and said you were not. You’d probably get super offended, right? Yes! After all, you go to church, you read your bible, you pray, you sing on the worship team. What are they talking about? How offensive! The great thing about how God is running this ministry is that you don’t know me and I don’t know you. So you don’t need to get offended. All you have to do is read the questions below, answer the questions honestly and this is just between you and God. So how would you know if you’re really not saved?
If you answer YES to these questions:
(1) I read the bible but I don’t really understand it like others. I don’t seem to have any kind of revelations as other do from reading the bible.
(2) I don’t have the kind of relationship with God that others do.
(3) I’m still trying to figure out why God speaks to other people but never speaks to me.
(4) I’m not 100% sure that I am going to heaven when I die
(5) I’ve prayed many prayers and never seem to win in any battles
If you answered YES to more than 3 of these 5 questions you may not actually be saved. I’m just trying to help you connect the dots. So where did you miss it? What I have found with people who are in this place is that they have the Father and they have the Son but they still don’t know the Holy Spirit. Something is missing. You are missing the Holy Spirit. Please read this
Then after that you can go here, watch the video, say the prayer and now you have the Holy Spirit.
You won’t need to be listening to anyone’s daily prophetic word you can ask your Husband yourself.
Prophets only know what God shows them
The bible says we see in part and we prophesy in part (1 Corinthians 13:9). People with the prophetic gift or the office of the prophet do not know everything. They only know what the Lord shows them. If you read the story of Samuel anointing David, why didn’t God just tell him to go to Jesse’s house, to the son named David and anoint him? No, He told him where to go and not until David was standing in front of him did he know this was the son that should be anointed (1 Samuel 16). When you have a huge destiny in the Lord, things are kept secret till the last minute. Think of Elijah and the story of Jezebel and Ahab. Elijah didn’t know that 100 prophets were in hiding and even after meeting the person who hid them, Obadiah, he still didn’t know. Obadiah had to tell him (1 Kings 18). So, the prophet doesn’t know everything.
God keeps a lot of things secret because He doesn’t want the enemy to ruin it. Many things He will only reveal at the very last minute when nothing can stop it.
I have met many people with huge destinies and I get very excited for them only to see them never get to it. Let me be clear, the devil cannot stop God’s plan for your life. He cannot. What he does is he frustrates you to the point where you give it up. He puts things in your path and make you go off track. If you decide in your mind that you are going for the highest prize, you will win. Every time. But is will require sacrifice. Dedication. Discipline. Perseverance. You will need to lose some people’s phone number. Cut off many. Crucify your flesh. Closing your mouth. Many things will be required and this is usually where people miss it. They are not willing to pay the price to get there.
God ONLY has great plans for you so if your life doesn’t look the way you believe it should, then He is not finished with you yet. There is more.
I pray this has helped you to decipher some of the things you’re seeing in the prophetic camps. Is there anything that was missed? Do you have a question concerning prophesies? Ask below in the comments.
