I think I'm a prophet

Recommended Posts

I think I get words of knowledge about people but I might just be really perceptive. How can you tell?

Prophecy / profess

prophet / professor

Same root... but a world of different meaning poured into essentially the same terms.

Prophecy is not about the prophet but the message (same as a profession and a professor).

And in fact it is more about God who gives the prophecy (which is sometimes about the future, sometimes

about the present, sometimes about the past).

The prophet (the professor / messenger) is not a mystical persona to be wooed over.

Put into this light, that the prophet is nothing... a mouthpiece at best... then ask yourself

Am I a Prophet?

You'd be surprised how few want the job.

I deal with this in my signature below.

They are gifts, "There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.  A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge.The same Spirit gives great faith to another, and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing. 1He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to discern whether a message is from the Spirit of God or from another spirit. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages, while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. 11 It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have," (1 Corinthians 12:4-10), and "Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers." (Ephesians 4:11).

When All Those Wonderful Words Of Knowledge

Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:1-3 (New International Version)

Turn People Toward Jesus

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us. 1 Corinthians 12:4-6 (New Living Translation)

IMO

To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 8For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills. 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 (English Standard Version)

Be Blessed Beloved Of The KING

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them. Numbers 6:24-27 (King James Bible)

Love, Your Brother Joe

~

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever. Psalms 119:160 (King James Bible)

The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.

Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you.

It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword and the Christian’s charter. Here too, Heaven is opened and the gates of Hell disclosed.

Christ is its grand subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently and prayerfully.  It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure.

It is given you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, rewards the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.

It (being a prophet) is God endowed (ie. not man).  

It isn't anything you can ascertain (in yourself)  or work towards.  It is more than just a gift of the holy spirit and no prophets will exist until end of days.

He will bless you with his knowledge according to his plans (again, not man's).

He will request you share (this knowledge).

So again, nothing you can do on your own.  It just shines through you (his light).

You can test it by allowing him to speak to you.  If you never hear his voice (and also can't tell the difference between his voice and another's), then it is not for you.

It is so rare, can only say one other person has that level of authority (credibility) right now (ie. Mark taylor) as everything he has prophesied has come to pass (another test you can use for yourself).

Wouldn't waste time worrying about it (or even asking for such wisdom).

Well I know how I'm supposed to serve God. Hes shown me in dreams and visions. I just don't like calling myself a prophet. It causes problems. Its not something I wanted and it has caused me a lot of trouble. I just want to use whatever gift he's given me to help others.

If God called you to the office of a Prophet, there would be no doubt or confusion.  God only assigns those to an office He knows will fulfill the office with His will.

We are to seek the best gifts, as in 1 Corinthians 12.  Remember, "But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.", not our will.

I thought I was a prophet too, until jesus didn't come back in 88.   Either I turned out to not be a prophet or Jesus is really late.

I Corinthians 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: 8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

Sounds more like this gift to me my friend ;)
