The Spirit of Prophecy

Revelation 19:10, NLT
"...Worship only God. For the essence of prophecy is to give a clear witness for Jesus."

True prophets speak of Christ.  They lead others into true worship... in spirit and in truth.  God's prophets don't waste time speaking about houses and cars... There are plenty of psychics and witches to take care of that foolishness.

The Scriptures say that the essence and purpose of prophecy is to speak of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.  If the "word" doesn't point you back to Christ, examine the source.

Who cares what number is printed on your next check?  God doesn't need to announce your birth city or bra size to impress anyone!  There is too much foolishness in the church!  Many of us are literally following and encouraging warlocks in our midst.  Remember, God doesn't turn tricks to impress us.

We must stop being impressed by the gifts and tricks of people who are not sent by God.  A person can abuse gifts and solicit information from any spirit.  No matter how impressive the gift may be, none of that matters if it brings glory to the messenger, but neglects guidance into true worship and holiness.  Examine the fruit!
