Jeremiah 29:8–9 NKJV
8 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Do not let your prophets and your diviners who are in your midst deceive you, nor listen to your dreams which you cause to be dreamed. 9 For they prophesy falsely to you in My name; I have not sent them, says the Lord.
Revelation 19:10 NKJV
10 And 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.”
1 Thessalonians 5:20–22 NKJV
20 Do not despise prophecies. 21 Test all things; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil.
1 Timothy 1:18 NKJV
18 This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare,

1. Prophecy is not a replacement for seeking God for yourself.

it’s easy to want to Just wait on the New Testament prophet to come through a say thus sayeth the Lord.
Modern Prophecy is Not equal scripture.
Isaiah 40:8 NKJV
8 The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.”
Hebrews 4:12 NKJV
12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
prophecy in the modern age is no replacement for seeking and hearing God for yourself. all of what we need to know about life is contained in the word of God the bible.

2. The prophetic word should point back to Jesus.

while we have a personal relationship with Jesus, we don’t have a personal Jesus, this little divinity in my pocket that is for me and not anyone else!
if it is a prophetic word then it will point back to Jesus and it will line up with the word of God.
we have to move away from this idea that when it feels good its God when it feels bad its the devil.
when you look at the Old testament The prophet called the people back to obedience to Himself.
I wouldn't worry about someone ‘prophesying to you repent. many times God will give the prophet a vision and conceal the meaning from the prophet and but the person who its for knows what it is.

3. The Modern prophetic word is to encourage you no matter the circumstances are.

that’s what the Apostle Paul meant when He told Timothy to wage war concerning Prophecy.
so many people are asking for deliverance from, when sometimes it’s deliverance through sometimes its just so you can be next to someone who is going through.
when you wage war you believe what God has said more than your current season.

4. Allow the Ministry to be matured before you put your self in prime time.

Acts 12:25–13:3 NKJV
25 And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem when they had fulfilled their ministry, and they also took with them John whose surname was Mark. 1 Now in the church that was at Antioch there were certain prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. 2 As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, “Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” 3 Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away.
see prophet and teachers… People who are already established.
