When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him (Deuteronomy 18:22).
Before the return of Jesus, the Bible has warned the believer there would be many false prophets. False prophets are known in the Bible as those with a familiar spirit. False prophets have ruined many lives by the prophecy they have given individuals and the prophecy didn’t come from God, but by their own spirit and emotions. There is a difference between a prophet of God and a false prophet. A true prophet of God speaks as the Lord gives him or her utterance, the prophecy will always line up with the Word of God; and the prophecy will come to manifestation, it will also be a confirmation of what God has already spoken in your spirit and heart. False prophets are known in the secular world as psyche. A true prophet of God will never give prophecies about receiving cars, money, homes and material items; God has promised, if we seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness, all these things would be given to us. Prophecy is given to encourage the individual in the Lord, confirming what God desires out of their life. Sometimes a prophecy is given about personal concerns, but usually it’s about the kingdom of God
True prophets of God will never ask for money to give you a word from God, they don’t give you a prophecy for $50.00 or $100.00; this is what psychic do, and it shouldn’t be in the body of Christ. God hasn’t changed, what He did through the prophets of old, He is still using them the same way. Prophets of old came to tear down and pickup what the adversary had built, they also rebuked and exhorted the people of God, true prophets of God are still doing it God’s way. Christians shouldn’t be charging someone if God has given them a prophecy to give to someone. Neither should Christians be calling psychic lines, using astrology, numerology, palm reading, or psychometry, all of these are individuals that have a familiar spirit. Many Christians don’t know what a familiar spirit is; a familiar spirit is an evil spirit that becomes familiar with an individual or family. It follows that person or family and knows their weakness-physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In the Christian community, its called generational curse, but its really a familiar spirit, not a curse. A spirit that is familiar with you will communicate knowledge about you to those whom they serve such as the psyche and false prophets. Keep in mind every person who has supernatural knowledge about you is not of God.
Many of God’s people have been destroyed spiritually because of the lack of knowledge. Many Christians don’t take the time to read and study the Bible, our commitment to God’s Word gives us knowledge and God will give us the wisdom how to apply the knowledge He has given us. God knows the past, present, and future; if we place our trust in Him, He will give us the information we’re seeking when we seek Him and not people to give us a word of prophecy. Don’t allow everyone to pray for you and speak into your life because those that have been sent by Satan can speak damnation and other havocs into your life. No them labor among you!
There will be times God will send someone in your life to tell you what He wants from you; or what you should do regarding certain circumstances, and you will know the answer came from God because it will agree with your spirit. It’s one thing about the Spirit of God indwelling our human spirit when someone has the same Spirit there will be an agreement in our spirit. Satan’s time is running out and he is trying to destroy as many lives as he can, be committed to God, His Word; and His Spirit will lead you into all truth.
