Do God's Work and all Your Needs will be Met
Fri May 23, 2014 12:22 am by Camille
God always provides for our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

As long as we are doing the work of the Lord God will always meet our needs. As long as we are pointing others to God, He will always see that you have plenty.

Do the work of the Lord share what you know from the bible and share your testimony of how you were healed or set free and God …

PostSubject: A Checklist for Judging Prophecy    Sat Dec 13, 2014 2:21 am

A Checklist for Judging Prophecy



"Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith" (Romans 12:6).



Some people have difficulty understanding prophecy. Years ago, there was a lady who attended a denominational church that did not believe in the gifts of the Spirit. But she started seeking the fullness of God. She started reading material that talked about people getting a word from the Lord.



One day I was talking with her and she said that after much prayer, that she had received a word from God. After asking her what the word was, she replied, "The word I received from God was 'pineapple.'" Well, according to God's Word, all prophecy must be judged-"Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge" (1 Corinthians 14:29) - and I judged this "word" a little "fruity."



Even though prophecy differs, it still must be judged. Here are three main criteria for judging prophecy.



1) Does it bring glory to Jesus?



"I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, 'See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy'" (Revelation 19:10).



All prophecy must lift up and exalt Jesus. Any prophecy that lifts up a person or an organization above Jesus is not of God. A false prophecy will always try to divert the glory, the honor, and the attention to another individual or group.



"Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world" (1 John 4:1-3).



Prophecies should never be flatteries or motivated by ulterior motives. The character of a prophet will reflect Jesus. "You will know them by their fruits" (Matthew 7:16).



2) Does it agree with God's Word?



The apostle Peter explained how prophecy is derived. He said, "For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit" (2 Peter 1:21). Deuteronomy 13:1-5 tells us that we should never believe a prophecy because of a sign only. Deuteronomy 18:20-22 tells us that a true prophecy will always come to pass because God does not lie.



3) Does it produce liberty or bondage?



Prophecies are given through the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Ask yourself this question after hearing a prophecy: How does it feel in my spirit? Does it agree with the anointing in me?



"It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil" (Isaiah 10:27).



A prophecy from God will always produce liberty because it is soaked in love.



"Though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing" (1 Corinthians 13:2).
