There is a pattern I am seeing. It disturbs me.
Much that is personal prophecy is not much more or less than the kinds of affirmations and encouragements one might find at a Tony Robbins self help motivational seminar, a book written by some guru or another in the bookstore.
It's not prophecy. It might be encouraging, but it's not prophetic.
Prophetic speaks specifically to a persons future. Specifically to a persons capacities and authority. It speaks to the need for change or movement.
I don't hear much of that. I hear and read a lot of badly masked positive thinking philosophy.
Even when God sends forth his words by many voices all saying the same thing, the response from the Body of Christ is, "where are the positive words of encouragement?". That's what Jeremiah did that got him thrown in a well.
We are there once again. We no longer have clear voices reaching the masses. We have vapid ethereal prophecies without sound or substance.
Read Ezekiel 36. Pretty Rough if you read it all. God is not pleased, yet He protects his people. He hasn't changed.
Why do the "prophets" of today seem to think God is someone else from who he really IS??
Malachi 3:6 "I am the LORD, and I do not change. That is why you descendants of Jacob are not already destroyed."
It's still true. Speak for the GOD THAT IS...and not what you wish He were.
