One of the cries I hear today, is the cry to hear the voice of God and not just to hear but to be able to minister that to other people. Let me give you some nuggets.
Thus saith the Lord of hosts: “Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you. They make you vain; they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord.
For who hath stood in the counsel of the Lord, and hath perceived and heard his word? Who hath marked his word, and heard it? ( Jeremiah 23:16, 18)
Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel. (Ezekiel 3:1)
The prophetic is not fortune telling or games. Men’s life depends on it, in order for them to survive. A prophetic person is God’s echo – God in His mercy has chosen to involve man in His work . This is to man’s delight as in the case of exodus 20:19 the people knew how terrible it could be to interact with God Himself.
Prophetic people are people who hear and then they say (Acts 11:27 – Agabus)
SOME MEN DON’T HAVE A PROPHETIC MINISTRY, THEY HAVE A PATHETIC MINISTRY. SOME ARE NOT PROPHET ,THEY ARE PROFIT.
BUILD UP YOURSELF Before you prophesy AND HERE IS HOW TO:
- Studying God’s Word (Ezekiel 3:1) THE LOGOS MUST BE PRIORITIZED.
- Praying in tongues (Jude 1:20)
- Fasting (Daniel 10)
- Humility ( 1 Samuel 3, Isaiah 6:8) If God can talk to a baby and a donkey, He will talk to you.
- Have the right spirit (Ezra 9:3)
- Receive impartations – Prophet Amoako
A prophetic person carries the emotions of God. He or she must be careful to let others around know if a negative incident happened that it was not Christ and then take full responsibility. If not then such a person will enter into prophetic manipulation.
