Several years ago a good friend of mine invited me to a service of someone that was known by many to be a "prophet". In all honesty, I really wasn't interested in attending and as a result refused the invitation.
Anyway, my friend was persistent and had told me many stories of this "prophet" declaring things that manifested in my friend's life. Anyway, in order to get my friend off my back I decided to go to one of the services. Unfortunately, had I known what I know today I would never have attended or invested my time in what later pan out to be a trap of the devil.
Long story short the things that this so called "prophet" prophesied over my life and my ignorance of coming in agreement with him, literally changed the course of my life for the worse!! It took years of study to come to the understanding of what I had allowed this prophet to do to me spiritually thus hindering me physically.
In my quest to learn more about these evil people as a result of what was done to me. I discovered a common trend among them and that is these so called prophets are always trying to prove to their victims that they are from God by revealing things from their victim's past or providing history about their victim's life or a family member etc. Well, this is exactly what familiar spirits do also. I mean just think about it for a second, there is absolutely no where in scripture where God through his men and women of God had to make statements or reveal things that were wrong with an individual to prove that they were from God. If a so called prophet describes your bedroom, or provide your street address or telephone number does that make him a prophet? Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't scripture instructs us to try the" spirit" to determine if that person is of God or not, 1 John 4:1? Why isn't anyone testing the spirit of these folks?
A prophet is a person who speaks for God or a deity, or by divine inspiration, thus there are false prophets and true prophets so the question is, which spirit or deity is speaking through this prophet?. When God speaks through a true prophet it is usually on the lines of God's will for that individual's life and whatever it is that God is saying it will for the most part be about God's future plans for that person that he has already established and more importantly their ministry in the earth to advance the kingdom of God while fulfilling the will of God.This is why God said the following, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end" Jeremiah 29:11 . An expected end refers to things concerning the future that God has already declared.
Therefore a false prophet will for the most part take you back in time focusing on past events that will feed and satisfy your flesh in an attempt to convince you that they are real and at the same time bringing glory to themselves, thus decorating themselves with titles such as super prophet, master prophet, chief prophet etc. Did Jesus the greatest prophet of all ever referred to himself or labeled himself as the master or super duper prophet?, Instead he humbly said that he does nothing unless his Father instructs him to. Nevertheless, the false prophet will continue to concentrate on your hurt of the past, describing the interior of your home, speaking about current events such as bad relations with family members, jealousy on the job or revealing your phone number, street address etc.
Imagine Jesus prophetically speaking to someone can you imagine him doing this? These are all demonic tactics calculated by evil spirits, in particular familiar spirits working through these false prophets via divination. Trying the spirit to see if it is of God or not means that your spirit will bear witness if that so called prophet have the spirit of God operating in him in spite of what may seem to be true in what he's saying. If they are not of God then spiritually it just won't add up to you, in other word something just don't seem right even though some of the things the "prophet have said is true". Scripture says, "But the natural man receive not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned" 1 Corinthians 2:14. Did you get that? "The things of God are spiritually discerned" this is why the false prophet stay focused and at the same time keeping you focus on the natural things such as prophesying phone numbers, street addresses etc.such things are not spiritually discern these things are being compared to what your flesh recognize in an effort to trap you.
When I came to the understanding of this I had to now go back and do a review of my life and begin coming against the false prophecies that were spoken over my life that I in my ignorance agreed to by accepting the word of these "prophets". I was confused for many years wondering why things were not happening for me especially since I was doing everything biblical to change my circumstances. What I didn't know was that those false prophecies over my life were the invisible barriers that had set restrictions on my life. Hear me today my friend. God is a God of covenants and he honors covenants and if you've made a covenant with these false prophets knowingly or unknowingly, then this just could be why your life is going absolutely no where if not backwards.
I want to say to someone today, yes I know that some of the things the so called prophet has said maybe true but remember he that is spiritual compare spiritual things with spiritual things, in fact here is what scripture says, "Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God (if the things of God are freely given by God then why is the prophet and his cohorts charging you to sow a seed as a result of what was prophesied? This is a major red flag my friend). Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual, 1 Corinthians 2:12-13. Just think about it, year after year prophecy after prophecy and there has either been zero manifestation, the opposite of what was said has happened or things has gotten worse. When will you wake up and conclude that these circus performers have your life on hold and anchored in a desert place with their lies and deception, not to mention the thousands of dollars you've paid for those lies and web of deceit they've sold you over the years. Please retrieve your spiritual compass and ask God to redirect you to where you should have been at this point in your life while at the same time renouncing and rejecting every false prophecy that has ever been spoken over your life in the name of Jesus the Christ!
"For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit" Romans 8:5
