Ten considerations any Christian should have when receiving prophecies

Each one who professes to be a Christian is called to not just follow prophecy which comes from God, but also to reject all prophecies which do not come from the Lord God. In the days of darkness, the only thing which gives you light is the Word of God. So do not mistake darkness for the light, for that darkness will be deep and lead to damnation. Be wise that you give God the glory by testing every spirit, if they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. So do not be a victim of false prophets, but be a victor against them in the Lord Jesus Christ.

The following are ten considerations any Christian should have when receiving prophecies from anyone, anywhere and anytime:

  1. Always check if the prophet speaks in the name of the Lord God who is none but the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
  2. Reject all prophets who speak in the names of false gods, false teachers, angels and demons.
  3. Test if the prophet is speaking in his or her own name instead of God alone. For any false prophet never seeks to only glorify the Lord but rather themselves.
  4. If what a prophet says does not come to pass, reject that person as a prophet of God. They surely have not heard from the Lord.
  5. Even if what a prophet says comes to pass, but that prophet then tells you to worship false gods, then reject that prophet outright, for they are not of God.
  6. Keep a careful record of all prophetic words by anyone and check if it is consistent with the written Word of God or if deviating from it. With more technology being available, its best to have video and audio records kept, along with written ones.
  7. Reject all prophets who contradict the Bible in their teachings, messages and actions.
  8. Never pay to receive a prophecy from anyone, because prophecy is a free gift of God. All those who ask for money or things in kind, to impart you prophetic words are false prophets.
  9. Never give heed to a blasphemer if he or she claims to speak from the Holy Spirit but utters blasphemous words.
  10. Reject anyone who claims to be God’s prophet but denies that Jesus is the Christ.

Eloquence is never a substitute for truth

Cowards don’t go to heaven

Cowards don’t go to heaven,
For in them there’s no godly leaven.
In vain the Gospel they process,
But when challenges come they regress.

The one who denies Christ out of fear,
Will find damnation is very near.
Those who claim in God to believe,
Mustn’t with timid thoughts themselves deceive.

Even in the midst of cowards you shine bright,
Hold on to your confession and have no fright.
Be bold for the Lord and do not pretend,
Stay courageous for Him till your very end.

Quick Reminder: Seek the truth in the Bible and not from the lying lips of man

  • But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Do not let your prophets and your diviners who are among you deceive you, and do not listen to the dreams that they dream, for it is a lie that they are prophesying to you in my name; I did not send them, declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 29: 7-9)
  • And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. (Matthew 24:4-5,24-25)
  • Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. (Ephesians 5:1-6)
  • See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. (Colossians 2:8)
  • Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 )

The Wise Prophet

The wise prophet of God is humble,
And about God’s Word he doesn’t grumble.
The wise prophet keeps a record,
So we can discern about divine accord.

The wise prophet doesn’t go by impulses,
But vague and unclear thoughts he repulses.
The wise prophet takes God as his only source,
And unto evil avenues he never takes recourse.

The wise prophetess is not an exception,
For she too must avoid all deception.
The wise prophetess too depends on God’s calling,
And by her faith in the Lord she is kept from falling.

 

Quick Reminder : Guard your mouth from unwise speech

Can you recognize a false friend immediately?

Avoid having a vacant mind

Avoid having a vacant mind,
Lest from heavens path you get left behind.
Blank not your mind even mildly,
Lest your life goes on wildly.

Avoid being away from God’s Word in thought disengaged,
Lest by the dark insidious world you get upstaged.
Never ever hollow your soul,
Lest you miss your heavenly goal.

Avoid blankly using your head,
Lest you don’t discern instead.
Avoid not thinking at all,
Lest you don’t do good either big or small.

Stay away from pride

Stay away from pride,
And in God confide.
Stay away from pride,
Lest mercy from you hide.

Stay away from pride,
And in God’s word abide.
Stay away from pride,
Lest it cause you to backslide.

Stay away from pride,
And in God’s way stride.
Stay away from pride,
Lest your faith gets dried.

Stay away from pride,
And in God’s will, be justified.
Stay away from pride,
Lest your life be unqualified.
