Your Prophecy


Ever had some one prophecy over you?

I did. On quite a few occasions.  It's the "charismatic" thing to do. And sometimes these prophets come from far away ... USA, Africa, or Europe ... makes it even the more powerful. ... only, if you start analyzing, as the Word says we should be doing, you are sometimes perplexed.  In many instances you are told that a certain "prophecy" is God's plan for your life. Or that you should do x, y and z and that a, b or c would only then happen. Let me tell you in no uncertain terms that all this is nothing more than fortune-telling (remember that the Hebrew base word for fortune is demon)!

How can you say this?

Well, first of all the prophecy is all about you or something else instead of all about Jesus.

Charitoo, we are on the other side, the Grace side of the cross.  God's Word says very clearly that "
...the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." Rev 19:10. In my life I've come to accept that any prophecy where Jesus is not the center focus of the prophecy, it is not from God at all! All prophecy should point to Jesus!

Secondly, God's Word (Jesus) says exactly how we can be sure of true prophecy ... and indeed that we have been prophecied upon. Concider 2Pe 1:19 "We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:" Go on and read the whole chapter. It explains how Jesus is our sure Word of prophecy, that He is contained in the written Word of God and that no prophecy aught to be for personal interpretation.

Thirdly, we are in the last days and God tells us how He speaks to us now. Heb 1:1-2 "v 1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

v 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds"
He will speak to you Himself because His Spirit lives right inside of you and you can speak to Him at any given time or moment.

Will He have someone prophecy over you?

Maybe ... and only if you are hard-headed and resistant to His Voice. The focus will always be Jesus!  And it will always be words of love and care.

Surely we have a Rock to stand on!

U r dipped in the fountain of His joy!
