Dishonor of 21 Century Prophets - Shirley Carter

No one believes that Apostle John did not accurately portray the visions of the 24-elders, the Throne of God, the Beast arising, The Bowls, Seals, Trumpets, fall of Babylonian system, coming of the Lord. No one says "Who does John think he is revealing such visions & dreams like he can't be wrong?" No one accuses the Prophet Daniel of being prideful when he revealed the last day events of thinking he is special when the others with him did not get the revelation. No one accuses Elijah of thinking he was better than the other prophets when he was caught up in a chariot releasing his mantle to Elisha. No one accuses Ezekiel of being immature because he wrote the vision of the Creatures in a way not many could comprehend.

The way many speak of God's vessels today truly reveals a lack of spiritual insight & honor for not only what vessels are chosen to do with a Biblical foundation, but dishonors the reality of what God can do and who He can raise up. So many don't see themselves as walking like Biblical leaders, so don't truly believe God has such vessels now. Therefore, they respond to God's Servants according to level of their own belief/walk, which is a form of pride. When the standard is raised back to match The GREAT I AM, the responses from His people will too. If someone has problems believing God will pay their bills, they have a hard time believing He will cause time to stand still for them, like Joshua. So they don't believe another knows God like that, yet is is true:

Joshua 10 - Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel:

“Sun, stand still over Gibeon;
And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.”
Till the people had revenge
Upon their enemies.

Proverbs 29:18
18 Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, 13:34 ¶ O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen [doth gather] her brood under [her] wings, and ye would not! Luk 13:35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until [the time] come when ye shall say, Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the Lord. Eph 5:15 ¶ See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Eph 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Eph 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord [is]. Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; (Be ye being Filled) Eph 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Eph 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Eph 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Jhn 15:18 ¶ If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before [it hated] you. Jhn 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.The Blessing of persecution and bearing the Holy Spirit Mar 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Mar 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; Mar 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Mat 10:32 ¶ Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. Mat 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Mat 10:34 ¶ Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. Mat 10:35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. Mat 10:36 And a man's foes [shall be] they of his own household. Mat 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
Mat 10:38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. Mat 10:39 He that finds his life shall lose it: and he that loses his life for my sake shall find it. Mat 10:40 ¶ He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. Mat 10:41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. All Have a gift severally as the Holy Spirit Wills The Lord worked with the new testament beleivers confirming His Word and even in the Church first Corinthians service there hope for us although I TELL YOU WEEPING MANY DESPISE THE CROSS shalom

leonard ravenhills testimony comes to mind.A young man came to Him and said I am called to be a prophet do you have any advice to which He replied it took decades to be trained as the Lords prophet for the ministry that He was called to. Do you have life insurance the young man replied no why would I need that? Because they took His head after 6 months in that ministry. That being said when God does something new or tries to reinstate something old or out of alignment, you will get shot at from both sides and if they don't get you the devil will probably use His human and other resources as well. Be of Good cheer because if you choose to run the race set before you and die in battle you'll still win. That being said God sees everything that goes on and Hears everything that is said even amidst your own brethren be obedient do as God commands He is Just and will deal with it at some point. Although it is written He will not let more come upon you than you can bear only He knows how much you can bear
look at it this way Jesus himself was really not treated much different than His Apostles and Prophets
