If They Be Prophets

 This book brings clarity to the role of the prophet in the New Testament Church. In addition, it explores the prophetic person and the prophetic anointing. It is our prayer that believers will recognize the operation of the prophetic office and gift in the Church.


Excerpt

Guidelines for Judging Prophecy

One of the major facets of understanding prophecy is to discern when something is not prophecy. Judging prophecy can be a tough task at times. Nevertheless, the scriptures do give guidelines to us to help us as we strive to hear from God through others. We all want to receive from God, but some of us have lost faith in the gift of prophecy.

Many have received erroneous prophecies. Others have followed the directions given to them through prophecy and the results were unfavorable. When judging a prophetic word, we must be careful not to miss God. Conversely, we need to know when God has not spoken. If you are unsure as to how to hear from God through others, there are certain questions you can ask yourself.

We must understand that God does speak to His people through this gift. We do not need to be afraid, but discerning. Even if we have received erroneous prophetic words in the past, we should not allow the enemy to steal a blessing from us. God may send someone with a valid prophetic word.

Does it come to pass? Sometimes this aspect of judging is hard to determine. However, if the person prophesying (prophet or laymen) gives a specific period or date for the word of the Lord to happen, it is easier to determine.

When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. (Deuteronomy 18:22)

Conversely, do not be quick to brand the prophecy false because it did not occur when you expected it. Prayerfully consider the word. It may turn out to be valid, but you did not understand the time in which it was to happen.
