CAN I PROPHECY TO ANYONE AT ANYTIME?

AM I A PROPHET IF I CAN PROPHESY?

IS THERE BIBLE EVIDENCE THAT PROPHETS ARE STILL IN THE CHURCH TODAY?

HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM A PROPHET?

I RECEIVED A PERSONAL PROPHECY THAT CONFUSES ME. WHAT DO I DO?

 

WHAT ARE FAMILIAR SPIRITS?

 

NEED A WORD FROM GOD? CHECK THIS OUT:

 

 

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD?

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT IS PROPHECY?

 

THE SIMPLE GIFT OF PROPHECY IS GOD SPEAKING TO MAN. THERE ARE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF PROPHECY. SOMETIMES GOD CAN USE A MAN OR WOMAN TO SPEAK TO INDIVIDUAL LIVES CONCERNING PAST, PRESENT, OR FUTURE EVENTS. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A PROPHET TO SPEAK A WORD OF PROPHECY. THE GIFT OF PROPHECY IS ONE OF THE NINE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT FOUND IN 1 CORINTHIANS 12:9-11 AND IN 1 CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 14. YOU CAN BE A CANIDATE TO MOVE IN THE GIFT OF PROPHECY AFTER YOU BECOME BORN AGAIN AND ARE FILLED WITH THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

 

 

 

IS PROPHECY HAVING THE ABILITY TO SEE THE FUTURE?

 

NOT IN IT’S SIMPLEST FORM. THE GIFT OF PROPHECY IS ONE OF THE VOCAL GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT GIVEN TO THE BELIEVER TO SPEAK A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT OR EXHORTATION TO A GROUP OF PEOPLE OR TO AN INDIVIDUAL.

 

1 Corinthians 14:3-4

3But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.

4He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.

 

THERE ARE THOSE WHO CAN SEE PARTS OR GLIMPSES OF THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED IN SOMEONE’S PAST, OR IN THEIR PRESENT CIRCUMSTANCES; THIS IS KNOWN AS THE GIFT OF THE WORD OF KNOWLEDGE.

THOSE WHO ARE ABLE TO SEE GLIMPSES OF FUTURE EVENTS CONCERNING PEOPLE, PLACES OR EVENTS ARE MOVING IN THE GIFT OF THE WORD OF WISDOM. BOTH THE GIFTS OF THE WORD OF KNOWLEDGE AND THE GIFT OF THE WORD OF WISDOM ARE KNOWN AS REVELATION GIFTS AND ARE SUPERNATURAL.

 

 

 

CAN I PROPHECY TO ANYONE AT ANYTIME?

 

 

ALL OF THE NINE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE NOT CONTROLABLE BY A PERSON. THE BIBLE SAYS IN 1 CORINTHIANS 12:11 THAT ALL THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE AS HE WILLS. THE APOSTLE PAUL DOES TELL US TO COVET THE BEST GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. IN OTHER WORDS IT IS GOD’S WILL FOR US TO DESIRE TO MOVE IN THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. THAT IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO EVERY BELIEVER TO GET A WORKING KNOWLEDGE ON THE NINE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

 

1 Corinthians 12:9-11

9To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

 

WE CAN LEARN TO YIELD TO THE HOLY SPIRIT AT ANY GIVEN TIME, BUT, WE CAN’T MAKE THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT OPERATE AT OUR OWN HUMAN WILL. IF THAT BE THE CASE, WE COULD GO INTO HOSPITALS AND HEAL THE SICK THROUGH THE GIFT OF HEALINGS AND THROUGH THE WORKING OF MIRALCES. PLUS, THAT WOULD GIVE US THE ABILITY TO RAISE THE DEAD AT ANYTIME. IT TAKES SPECIAL FAITH, OR, THE GIFT OF FAITH TO RAISE THE DEAD AND TO CONTROL THE WEATHER.

 

AM I A PROPHET IF I CAN PROPHESY?

 

THE OFFICE OF THE PROPHET, OR, MINISTRY GIFT IS NOT THE SAME AS THE GIFT OF PROPHECY. ANY SPIRIT FILLED BELIEVER CAN PROPHESY.

 

THERE IS A SUPERNATURAL CALLING BY THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH TO BE A PROPHET. THE PROPHET’S MINISTRY IS ONE OF THE FIVE MINISTRY GIFTS GIVEN TO THE BODY OF CHRIST TO EQUIP US AND CAUSE US TO GROW UP INTO SPIRITUAL MATURITY.

 

Ephesians 4:11-12

11And he (Jesus) gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

12For the perfecting (equipping) of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

 

 

IS THERE BIBLE EVIDENCE THAT PROPHETS ARE STILL IN THE CHURCH TODAY?

 

 

YES. WE MUST CLARIFY THAT NOT EVERY CHURCH OR DENOMINATION WILL HAVE GOD-CALLED PROPHETS IN THEIR LOCAL CHURCHES. ALSO, NOT EVERYONE THAT CALLS THEMSELVES A PROPHET IS A TRUE PROPHET. KENNETH HAGIN USED TO SAY JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN GO INTO A BARN DOESN’T MAKE YOU A DONKEY!

THERE ARE WHOLE DENOMINATIONS THAT BLELEIVE THERE WERE OLD TESTAMENT PROPHETS RECORDED IN THE BIBLE, BUT, NO LONGER PROPHETS OR APOSTLES IN THE EARTH TODAY. LET US GO TO THE SCRIPTURES TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION:

 

Ephesians 4:13-14

13Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

14That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

 

 

THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY WAS GIVEN TO THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST, INCLUDING THE PROPHET’S MINISTRY, “TILL WE ALL COME INTO THE UNITY OF THE FAITH…”

THAT WON’T HAPPEN UNTIL JESUS COMES BACK FOR THE CHURCH IN THE RAPTURE! WE NEED THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY LISTED IN THE ABOVE SCRIPTURE TO HELP US GROW UP SPIRITUALLY! HOW ARE YOU GOING TO GROW UP WITHOUT THEM? HOW ARE YOU GOING TO LEARN FROMTHEM AND RECEIVE THEIR VITAL MINISTRY IF YOUR DENOMINATION TELLS YOU THEY DON’T EXIST?

 

 

HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM A PROPHET?

 

 

BECAUSE I SAT UNDER KENNETH HAGIN YEARS AGO, AND, KNEW HIM PERSONALLY, I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THE TRAINING AND IMPARTATION HE GAVE ME IN MATTERS SUCH AS KNOWING THE CALL OF GOD AND HOW TO RESPOND TO IT. KENNETH HAGIN MADE THE STATEMENT MANY TIMES IN SCHOOL, “IF YOU ARE CALLED OF GOD, NO ONE CAN TALK YOU INTO IT, AND, NO ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO TALK YOU OUT OF IT!” THERE IS A LOT OF TRUTH IN THOSE WORDS.

 

FIRST OF ALL, IF YOU ARE GOING TO A CHURCH THAT DOES NOT RECEIVE THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THEIR TEACHINGS FROM THE PUPIT, OR, THEY ARE NOT WORKING WITHIN YOUR LOCAL CHURCH, IT WILL BE HARD FOR YOU TO DEVELOP YOUR CALLING AS A PROPHET OR MINISTRY GIFT, IF THEY ARE NOT A WORKING KNOWLEDGE TO YOUR PASTOR. MOST OF THE TIME, THE CARNAL MIND IS AGAINST WHAT IT DOESN’T UNDERSTAND.

14-16The unspiritual self, just as it is by nature, can't receive the gifts of God's Spirit. There's no capacity for them. They seem like so much silliness. Spirit can be known only by spirit—God's Spirit and our spirits in open communion. Spiritually alive, we have access to everything God's Spirit is doing, and can't be judged by unspiritual critics. Isaiah's question, "Is there anyone around who knows God's Spirit, anyone who knows what he is doing?" has been answered: Christ knows, and we have Christ's Spirit.

 

 

 

I BELIEVE THAT TRULY WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS. I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH ABOUT YOUR CALLING, THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL CONTINUE TO LEAD YOU AS HE IS DOING RIGHT NOW IN YOUR QUEST TO UNDERSTAND YOUR CALLING. BIBLE ANSWERS TO LIFE’S QUESTIONS ARE AVAILABLE BY READING AFTER FAITH-FILLED MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD. LISTED BELOW ARE MEN AND WOMEN OF FAITH THAT HAVE WRITTEN BOOKS THAT CAN HELP YOU IN YOUR PERSONALIZED STUDY?

I RECEIVED A PERSONAL PROPHECY THAT CONFUSES ME. WHAT DO I DO?

 

 

FIRST OF ALL, MOST OF THE TIME WHEN WE GET A PERSONAL PROPHECY THAT CONFUSES US IS BECAUSE:

A) THE PERSON GIVING THE PROPHECY MISSES GOD.

B) WE MISUNDERSTOOD WHAT WAS BEING SAID.

C) THE PROPHECY IS FOR A LATER DATE.

 

LET US TAKE THESE 3 SCENARIOS ONE AT A TIME AND DO OUR BEST TO ANSWER THEM.

 

 

A) THE PERSON GIVING THE PROPHECY MISSES GOD.

 

I HAVE BEEN AROUND THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT OPERATING SINCE 1974. I FIRST STARTED OUT IN OUR LADY OF FLORIDA MONASTERY IN JUPITER, FLORIDA AS A TEENAGER INVOLVED IN A CHARISMATIC CATHOLIC PRAYER MEETING. WE MET ON THURSDAY NIGHTS WITH PEOPLE FROM MANY DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS AND BELIEFS. WHAT I GLEAMED FROM THE LIFE IN THE SPIRIT SEMINARS WAS AMAZING INFORMATION. THEY TAUGHT ME TO REVERENCE THE HOLY SPIRIT AND TO RESPECT THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. WE WERE MERELY “INSTRUMENTS” OR “VESSELS” OF THE MASTER’S USE IN ORDER TO HIS THE PEOPLE OF GOD. I NEVER FORGOT THAT. IF YOU HAVE BEEN AROUND THE CHARISMATIC MOVEMENT AT ALL OR A FULL GOSPEL CHURCH THAT MOVES “IN THE SPIRIT,” YOU PROBABLY HAVE RECEIVED A PROPHECY THAT WAS OFF THE WALL, OR, JUST DIDN’T MAKE ANY SENSE TO YOU. I WANT YOU TO ASK YOURSELF THE QUESTION, WHO WAS THE PERSON GIVING YOU THE PROPHECY? WHO WERE THEY IN YOUR LIFE? OVER 20 YEARS AGO WE WERE TOLD TO GUARD OURSELVES FROM WHAT SOME CALLED, “PARKING LOT PROPHECIES.”

 

PROPHECY IS NOT MEANT TO CONTROL YOU INTO DOING SOMETHING. I’VE HEARD OF YOUNG MEN PROPHESYING TO THE YOUNG WOMEN OF THEIR DREAMS, “THUS SAITH THE LORD, YOU ARE TO MARRY ME! “ IT MAY SOUND FOOLISH, BUT IT HAPPENED IN SOME CASES! JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE PROPHECIES FOR YOU TO MOVE TO AFRICA, THAT DOESN’T MEAN YOU HAVE TO. I OFTEN THOUGHT WHAT I WOULD HAVE DONE IF BROTHER HAGIN PROPHESIED TO ME TO MOVE TO CHINA. WOULD I GO? I WOULD HAVE DEFINITELY PRAYED ABOUT IT. BUT, HE NEVER DID. WHY? EVEN THOUGH HE WAS PROPHET HE MIGHT HAVE SEEN THINGS IN MY FUTURE, BUT, IF THE LORD DID NOT MOVE ON HIM TO SPEAK A WORD LIKE THAT TO ME, HE WOULDN’T. AS A PROPHET, KENNETH HAGIN KNEW A LOT OF THINGS BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. HE JUST KNEW HE WAS RESPONSIBLE ONLY FOR WHAT THE LORD WOULD HAVE HIM SAY, NOTHING ELSE.

JUST BECAUSE WE KNOW THINGS BY THE HOLY SPIRIT DOESN’T GIVE US THE LIBERTY TO TELL EVERYONE. THERE ARE SOME THINGS WE HAVE TO WALK OUT BY FAITH. I HAVE HAD PEOPLE TELL ME I WAS CALLED TO DO SOMETHING, AND I WOULD JUST LOOK AT THEM AND TELL THEM, THANKYOU.AS SOON AS THE LORD TELLS ME TO I WILL. IT HAS TO DO WITH THE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PERSON SOMETIMES. I THINK IF GOD WANTED ME TO MOVE TO CHINA HE WOULD TELL ME BEFORE HE WOULD TELL A STRANGER, OR, SOMEBODY I HARDLY KNEW! HOW DO WELL MEANING PEOPLE MISS GOD SO BAD? THEY COULD MEAN WELL AND JUST WANT TO BLESS YOU REAL GOOD WITH A WORD. OR THE PERSON GIVING THE PROPHECY COULD HAVE ULTERIOR MOTIVES.

 

 

B) WE MISUNDERSTOOD WHAT WAS BEING SAID.

 

 

WHEN WE BEGIN TO EXPLORE THE DYNAMICS OF PERSONAL PROPHECY, WE CAN SURE ENCOUNTER WORDS THAT WE THOUGH THE PERSON SAID, OR, THE MANNER IN WHICH THE PROPHETIC WORDS WERE GIVEN. WHAT IS A WARNING? DID WE TAKE IT AS A WARNING? WAS THE PROPHECY WITH NEGATIVE OVERTONES? DID WE HEAR IT WITH NEGATIVE OVERTONES?

DID WE HEAR SOMETHING THAT WASN’T SAID? DID WE READ SOMETHING INTO THE PROPHETIC WORD THAT REALLY WASN’T SAID? IT WAS MORE OF WHAT WE WANTED TO HEAR?

IF THE PROPHECY WAS OF GOD, AND WE ARE HEARING WITH THE RIGHT SPIRIT (ATTITUDE), IT SHOULD NOT BRING CONFUSION.

I REMEMBER YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS MINISTERING IN A CHURCH SERVICE IN VALDOSTA, GEORGIA. THE COUPLE STANDING BEFORE ME REQUESTED PRAYER FOR THEIR BUSINESS THAT GOD WOULD PROSPER IT. I LAYED MY HANDS ON THEM TO PRAY. SUDDENLY I KNEW BY THE WORD OF KNOWLEDGE THAT THEY WEREN’T TITHERS. I HAD NEVER MET THIS COUPLE BEFORE. YET I KNEW SUPERNATURALLY THEY NEEDED A WORD FROM GOD. I TURNED MY MICROPHONE OFF AND WHISPHERED IN THEIR EAR THAT THERE WAS NO SENSE IN ASKING THE LORD TO BLESS THEIR BUSINESS IF THEY WEREN’T WILLING TO DO WHAT GOD’S WORD SAID ABOUT TITHING. THEY WERE FIRST OF ALL SHOCKED AT THE PROPHETIC WORD I HAD GIVEN THE,M BUT THANK THE LORD I BELIEVE THAT SERVICE THEY TOOK TO HER THE WORD THAT THEY HAD RECEIVED FROM ME. THEY COULD HAVE BURLED UP AND SAID THEY DIDN’T RECEIVE, BUT, THEY CHOSE TO TAKE THE CORRECTION AND I BELIEVE THEY REPENTED AND WERE BLESSED.

IF YOU ARE NOT SURE THE PROPHECY WAS OF GOD THEN JUST PUT IT ON THE SHELF AND PRAY AND LISTEN TO THAT STILL SMALL VOICE ON THE INSIDE. THIS BRINGS US TO OUR NEXT POINT:

 

 

C) THE PROPHECY IS FOR A LATER DATE.

 

IF THE PROPHECY WAS TRUE, IT WILL COME TO PASS WITHOUT YOU HAVING TO “HELP THE LORD OUT.”

IF THE WORD OF PROPHECY CAME FROM SOMEONE THAT YOU RESPECT AS A SPIRITUAL MENTOR, SERIOUSLY PRAY AND ASK THE LORD TO CONFIRM THE WORD.

ALWAYS KNOW THAT THERE IS NO PERSONAL PROPHECY THAT WILL EVER CONTRADICT THE BIBLE, THE HOLY WORD OF GOD. FOR AN EXAMPLE, I DON’T HAVE TO PRAY ABOUT A PROPHECY GIVEN THAT TELLS ME TO LEAVE MY SPOUSE AND MARRY SOMEONE ELSE. I DON’T HAVE TO PRAY ABOUT A PROPHECY SOMEONE GIVES ME THAT I HAVE TO GO TO CHINA AS A MISSIONARY OR I WILL DIE IN 3 DAYS… THAT IS CONTRARY TO THE BIBLE. IF GOD WANTS ME TO GO TO CHINA HE CAN TELL ME, AND HE WILL IN THE STILL SMALL VOICE.

 

I DON’T HAVE TO PRAY ABOUT A PROPHECY THAT TELLS ME TO DO ANYTHING THAT IS CONTRARY TO THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD!

IF GOD HAD BLESSED ME WITH SOMEONE WHO IS PROPHETIC IN MY LIFE, I AM TO WEIGH THEIR PROPHECY WORD BY WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

IF GOD HAS BLESSED ME WITH A TRUE PROPHET OF GOD IN MY LIFE, AND I KNOW THEY HAVE A PROVEN TRACK RECORD OF HEARING FROM GOD, I WOULD TAKE WHAT THEY SAID VERY SERIOUSLY, BUT, STILL JUDGE THE PROPHECY BY THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD.

 

WE HEAR OF PROPHECIES GIVEN TO PEOPLE ALL THE TIME THAT BRINGS THEM CONFUSION. PLEASE KNOW THIS IS NOT HOW GOD WANTS TO LEAD YOU. HE CAN USE ANY SPIRIT-FILLED BELIEVER TO SPEAK A PROPHETIC WORD THAT WILL CONFIRM WHAT IS ALREADY INSIDE OF YOU. JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE TELLS YOU THEY HAVE THE GIFT OF PROPHECY DOESN’T MEAN THEY ARE INFALLABLE OR THAT THEY KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU BETTER THAN YOU DO!

 

 

 

1 Thessalonians 5:20-21

20Despise not prophesyings.

21Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

 

WE ARE NOT TO DESPISE PROPHESYING. BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, WE ARE NOT TO BELIEVE EVERYTHING EVERYBODY PROPHESIES TO US EITHER. THE BIBLE TELLS US TO PROVE ALL THINGS, TO SEE IF THEY ARE OF GOD. IF THE PROPHETIC WORD DOESN’T BEAR ANY WITNESS TO YOU, DO NOT PAY ANY ATTENTION TO IT.

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT ARE FAMILIAR SPIRITS

 

 

FAMILIAR SPIRITS ARE EVIL SPIRITS THAT ARE FAMILIAR WITH PEOPLE. THEY KNOW CERTAIN FACTS ABOUT PEOPLE, INCLUDING BELIEVERS, AND MANY TIMES THEY ARE CORRECT! THE DEMON SPIRITS CAN KNOW PEOPLE’S NAMES AND WHERE THEY LIVE. THEY CAN EVEN KNOW THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN SAID OR DONE IN TIMES PAST. THE FAMILIAR SPIRITS CAN TELL WHAT THEY KNOW TO PEOPLE WHO YIELD TO THEM.

FAMILIAR SPIRITS ARE NOT OMNISCIENT OR ALL KNOWING. SO, THEY DO NOT KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT PEOPLE. ONLY GOD IS ALL KNOWING. FAMILIAR SPIRITS CAN KNOW HOW MUCH MONEY YOU HAVE IN THE BANK OR IN YOUR WALLET. THE HOLY SPIRIT KNOWS THOSE THINGS, ALSO. WHY WOULD THE HOLY SPIRIT TELL SOMEONE HOW MUCH MONEY YOU HAD IN YOUR POCKET? THAT IS TYPICALLY THE WORK OF FAMILIAR SPIRITS.

 

IT IS POSSIBLE FOR A PROPHET TO OPEN HIMSELF/HERSELF UP TO A FAMILIAR SPIRIT. IT IS DANGEROUS THING TO TRY TO DIRECT PEOPLE’S LIVES AS A PROPHET, OR FOR ANY CHRISTIAN, FOR THAT MATTER. THE BIBLE TELLS US GOD WILL OPEN UP HIS WILL FOR OUR LIVES BY STUDYING THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD.

Psalm 119:130

New International Version - UK (NIVUK)

Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society

130 The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

WE KNOW THE BIBLE SAYS THE HOLY SPIRIT DESIRES TO LEAD US THROUGH OUR OWN HUMAN SPIRIT. NOTICE THE ABOVE SCRIPTURE CAN OPEN OUR EYES TO DIVINE INFORMATION (LIGHT). AS WE SPEND TIME IN GOD’S WORD, AS WE STUDY THE WORD OF GOD AND NOT JUST READ IT, WE WILL BEGIN TO HEAR CLEAR DIRECTION FOR OUR LIVES. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN OVERNIGHT.

Romans 8:14-16 (New International Version - UK)

New International Version - UK (NIVUK)

Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society

14 because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

15 For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children

 

THE ABOVE SCRIPTURES ALSO AFFIRM THERE IS A LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AVAILABLE TO EVERY BELIEVER. NOTICE IT SAYS THE HOLY SPIRIT BEARS WITNESS WITH OUR SPIRIT. SOMETIMES YOUR SPIRIT KNOWS THINGS YOUR HEAD DOES NOT KNOW! THE NUMBER ONE WAY GOD WANTS TO LEAD YOU IS THROUGH YOUR RECREATED HUMAN SPIRIT!

A TRUE PROPHET IS NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF TRYING TO RUN OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES. WE NEED TO BE CAREFUL IN THE AREA OF PERSONAL PROPHECY.

I REMEMBER MANY YEARS AGO WHILE I WAS ATTENDING RHEMA BIBLE COLLEGE IN BROKEN ARROW, OKLAHOMA, KENNETH HAGIN TOLD A STORY ABOUT A PROPHET THAT HAD WENT OFF INTO ERROR AND WAS LISTENING TO FAMILIAR SPIRITS. HE TOLD US A STORY OF A FRIEND OF HIS WHO HAD A PROPHET COME TO TOWN TO HOLD SOME SPECIAL PROPHETIC MEETINGS. THE BUSINESS MAN HAD TAKEN THE PROPHET OUT TO LUNCH WHEN HE FIRST CAME TO TOWN. THE PROPHET TOLD THE BUSINESS MAN THAT THE MAN HAD AN HEIRLOOM, A SEVEN CARAT DIAMOND RING IN HIS CHEST OF DRAWERS IN HIS BEDROOM. THE PROPHET EVEN TOLD THE BUSINESS MAN THE DIAMOND WAS WRAPPED UP INSIDE A HANDKERCHIEF IN THE BACK RIGHT HAND CORNER, IN THE THIRD DRAWER. THE PROPHET SAID, “ YOU ARE TO GIVE IT TO ME.”

THAT WAS SUPERNATURAL KNOWLEDGE, EVEN SPECTACULAR KNOWLEDGE. THE DEVIL AND FAMILIAR SPIRITS OPERATE IN SUPERNATURAL KNOWLEDGE, TOO. YOU BETTER BE CAREFUL OF PEOPLE THAT PROPHESY RINGS OFF YOUR FINGERS, CARS, AND MONEY FROM YOU!

THE BUSINESS MAN TOLD KENNETH HAGIN THAT THE PROPHETIC WORD MUST HAVE BEEN GOD BECAUSE WHAT THE PROPHET SAID WAS TRUE! HE WENT HOME AND GOT THE RING AND GAVE IT TO THE PROPHET.

IT IS POSSIBLE AS A MINISTER, YOU CAN GET LIFTED UP IN PRIDE WHEN GOD USES YOU, AND WALK AWAY FROM GOD INTO SIN. YPU CAN GET “MONEY HUNGRY” AND LOSE THE ANOINTING OF GOD. MINISTERS WHO PUSH PASS THE HOLY SPIRIT AND TRY TO USE THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT FOR THEIR OWN GAIN, CAN OPEN THEMSELVES TO OCCULT POWERS AND FAMILIAR SPIRITS.

IF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT MOVING AND YOU HAVE A PRAYER LINE WITH 50 PEOPLE WAITING FOR A “WORD FROM THE LORD,” THE MINISTER NEEDS TO STOP! IF THE PROPHET TRIES TO OPERATE SPIRITUAL GIFTS ON HIS OWN TO DIRECT PEOPLE’S LIVES, HE OPENS HIMSELF UP TO THE DEVIL AND FAMILIAR SPIRITS.

A TRUE PROPHET OUGHT TO KNOW THE VOICE OF GOD! JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN HEAR VOICES THAT TELL YOU SUPERNATURAL INFORMATION DOES NOT MEEAN IT IS GOD!

WE MUST RESPECT SACRED THINGS. THIS IS NOT A BIG SPIRITUAL GAME OF PLAYING CHURCH.

THERE IS HOPE FOR THE PROPHET, MINISTER, OR CHRISTIAN THAT WILL CORRECT THEMSELVES. IF WE REFUSE, WE WILL END UP ON THE SPIRITUAL JUNKHEAP LIKE SO MANY DO. IT IS POSSIBLE FOR GOD TO DISREGARD YOUR MINISTRY IF YOU REFUSE TO JUDGE YOURSELF.

Lady Wisdom

20-21 Lady Wisdom goes out in the street and shouts.

At the town center she makes her speech.

In the middle of the traffic she takes her stand.

At the busiest corner she calls out:

 

22-24 "Simpletons! How long will you wallow in ignorance?

Cynics! How long will you feed your cynicism?

Idiots! How long will you refuse to learn?

About face! I can revise your life.

Look, I'm ready to pour out my spirit on you;

I'm ready to tell you all I know.

As it is, I've called, but you've turned a deaf ear;

I've reached out to you, but you've ignored me.

 

25-28 "Since you laugh at my counsel

and make a joke of my advice,

How can I take you seriously?

I'll turn the tables and joke about your troubles!

What if the roof falls in,

and your whole life goes to pieces?

What if catastrophe strikes and there's nothing

to show for your life but rubble and ashes?

You'll need me then. You'll call for me, but don't expect

an answer.

No matter how hard you look, you won't find me.

 

A WORD FROM THE LORD

 

"I HAVE PLANNED AND SOUGHT YOU OUT FOR SUCH AN HOUR AS THIS; THAT YOU WOULD BE A PART OF A GREAT ARMY OF SAINTS THAT WOULD SPEAK A BLESSING FOR THOSE THAT WILL HEAR! I AM ESTABLISHING MY WORD WITHIN YOUR HEARTS AND MINDS THAT YOU WILL NOT BE AFRAID OF IN THE COMING DAYS...

WATCH! LOOK! AND LISTEN! REFUSE TO SLUMBER, BUT, ARISE INTO THE GREATNESS OF THIS HOUR! ARISE AND TAKE YOUR PLACE IN THE EARTH THAT OTHERS MIGHT SEE THE GLORY THAT SHALL BE REVEALED IN THE EARTH.

YES, THERE IS CERTAIN DESTRUCTION AND CALAMNITY THAT IS COMING, FOR THE SHAKING HAS ALREADY BEGUN.EVERYTHING THAT MAN HOLDS TO BE SECURE AND SAFE WILL BE SHAKEN. IN HIS OWN JUDGEMENT AND IN HIS OWN UNDERSTANDING, I WILL SHAKE AND BRING DOWN THE IDOLS THAT HE HAS SET BEFORE ME.

IT IS NOT A TIME FOR YOU TO BE CONSUMED; IT IS A TIME FOR YOUR VICTORY AND THAT THROUGH A BLOOD COVENANT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO STAND AND BE PROTECTED , THAT ALL MEN MIGHT SEE AND KNOW YOUR GOD...ARISE AND TAKE YOUR SEAT OF AUTHORITY IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD?

 

NEWS BEFORE IT HAPPENS

 

PSALM 91 NEEDS TO BE IN THE HEARTS OF GOD'S PEOPLE. THE PLAGUES THAT JESUS TOLD US OF THAT WOULD BE A PART OF THE LAST DAYS IS JUST UPON US. OUT OF THE ORIENT WILL COME A PLAGUE, (WATCH CHINA) MANY WILL FEAR OF THIS PANDEMIC. THERE WILL NOT BE TIME TO FIND A VACCINATION BEFORE MANY WILL DIE. I SEE THE FEAR TRAVELING OVER THE EARTH ALMOST LIKE A WIND. PICTURES OF GHOST TOWNS ACROSS VILLAGES IN ASIA. WE MUST SPIRITUALLY BE PREPARED.

 

WATCH IRAN. THE THREAT OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS WLL INTENSIFY.... WILL THIS BE ISRAEL'S MAJOR OFFENSIVE? GO BACK AND READ JEREMIAH CHAPTER 50. WHAT WILL CAUSE THIS HORRIFIC DEVASTATION? WILL THIS BE AS A FORM OF RETAILIATION FROM ISRAEL OR THE UNITED STATES? IT IS PROPHESIED ABOUT A LAND (IN THE MIDDLE EAST) THAT NO MAN WILL INHABIT EVER AGAIN. JEREMIAH 50 IS THE SAME GEOGRAPHIC AREA AS IRAN...WATCH FOR TENSIONS TO RISE IN 2006 OVER IRAN'S NUCLEAR AGENDA.
