PROPHECY. WHAT ABOUT THE SCRIPTURE.

  Hebrews  1:2      By Rev. Shirley J Cunningham 

 

I have some very serious concerns about what is happening in Christian circles today concerning prophecy and those that say they are prophets.   Please read this and consider it while in the presence of    the Lord.  Bind all unclean and familiar spirits as you take this into his throne room.  May the blood and the name of Jesus cover you. 

 

John 12:32;  Jesus said “and I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.     We need to be drawing people to Jesus, not churches, self or ministries.  Jesus First.

 

Matthew 17:3-7   And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.  Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, one for Moses, and one for Elias.   While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud which said, this is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. And when the disciples heart it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.  And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise and be not afraid.  And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.  (It was not the prophets to be seen, It was Jesus.)

Many persons have received what they call personal prophecy.  I definitely believe in this, but I do not accept the things going on in Christian circles today that people call personal prophecy as coming from the Lord. 

Jesus said and I if I be lifted up.  I find that when the so called prophets speak, they seem to lift up themselves even to the degree of thinking they should receive and offering for the good words that they bring.  Sure doesn’t sound like the Lord is in it to me.  Jesus wants to be lifted up and then He told us he would supply our every need according to his riches in glory.  (Phil 4:19)  Now I really have a problem with the so called prophets asking for an offering if someone liked the word that they gave them.  Ministries like ours struggle to preach the truth and finance pastors in India that lay their lives on the line every day and even go without food and supplies for the sake of others that the Gospel may go forth.  I had a woman give me a personal prophecy years ago, and she said, “I see you taking a bubble bath.”   Well she saw me later and told me to go home a take a bubble bath.  Something wrong with that picture.  What glory did the Lord get out of that?   I had enough sense to take a bubble bath if I wanted to.  I sure did not need a prophet to tell me. 

 

Some things I don’t need a prophet to tell me. 

1.        You are going to come into a lot of money.

2.       You are going to get a new car.

3.       You are going to move or get a new house or a new suit or a new……..whatever.

4.       You are going on a cruise or on a vacation. 

 

Well I hope you get the picture.  This kind of word just draws attention to self, selfish desires and to the prophet themselves. We need to edify the spirit, not the self or fleshly part of us.  If you can’t hear God, then beware of what you hear the prophet say.

I am teaching on the gifts of the Holy Spirit at our church on Wednesday evenings.  I would love to teach the so called prophets to become real in the Word of God and use the gifts correctly.  People are hurting and have many needs.  The first is Jesus being lifted up for them to see.

I pray that you not be taken in by all of this nonsense and that you not allow the deception of the new age to infiltrate you or your church.
