Firstly I rightfully do not endorse Christians begging or trying to make money of the gospel, asking for money or any of the adds, or the Bibles, books, tapes listed here for sale too..




Prophesy
"Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.  A lion has roared! Who will not fear?  The Lord God has spoken!  Who can but prophesy?"  Amos 3:7,8

(1 Cor 14:39 KJV)  Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. 40  Let all things be done decently and in order.
 
(Rev 19:10 KJV)  And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
 
All Prophecy always exalts the Lord Jesus Christ and not any man, person, denomination..
 
Don't  firstly  even be under the false illusion that Satan no longer opposes or does not try to discredit today  any Christian truth.. he will do so instantly, and even use one of his followers to do it too and they will quote even the Bible to do so too. Check first everything with the word of God, the Bible for  yourself. Don't accept the too often false words of mere men and women rather.
 
(Prov 8:13 KJV)  The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate
 
(Zep 2:10 KJV)  This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the LORD of hosts.
 
(1 Tim 3:6 KJV)  Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
 
(1 John 2:16 KJV)  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
 
(Prov 29:23 KJV)  A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
 
(1 Cor 10:21 KJV)  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils. 22   Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?
 
(Jer 9:2 KJV)   Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men. 3  And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD. 4  Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders. 5  And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity. 6  Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.
 
(Isa 28:7 KJV)  But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
 
(Jer 14:14 KJV)  Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart
 
(Jer 13:17 KJV)  But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the Lord's flock is carried away captive.
 
(Micah 7:2 KJV)  The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. 3  That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up.  4  The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity. 5  Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. 6  For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house. 7  Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.
 
(Hosea 12:7 KJV)  He is a merchant, the balances of deceit are in his hand: he loveth to oppress.
 
I want you also  to remember always  that some persons do still have a false, visible or hidden  agenda, for hopeful personal economic gains, power, and even THE FALSE oppression of others and that is why they do misinterpret the Bible to their now falls inclinations  including the books of  Paul, Revelation and Joel, the bad elders, pastors included. It should be very obvious that many Bible verses do warn, state the reality of a personal negative consequences here one earth next for those who do not follow fully after God, for those who do not care about the good welfare of others, do not help the poor and needy persons, to all those persons who counsel divorce as well, twist the word of God too.... and yes there are real negative personal consequences here on earth as well as in heaven. The issue of gifts often does sirs up controversy, the kind that Satan is behind it.. he wants it all to be still  a secret too. (Rom 14:1 KJV)  Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.
 
(Isa 29:13 KJV)  Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
 
2 Pet 1:19 – 21, 2:1 – 3, “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto you do well that you take heed, as unto a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privately shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying Jesus that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingers not, and their damnation slumbers not.”
 
Clearly one of the unique, great, valid emphasis of the Pentecostals from the other denominations is also their emphasis on personally hearing God speak. even personally and collectively speaking to us, verbally individually or in a collective setting by prophecy.

(1 Cor 14:26 KJV)  How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying. 27  If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. 28  But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God. 29  Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. 30 If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. 31  For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. 32  And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. 33  For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. 34  Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. 35  And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

(1 Cor 14:39 KJV)  Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. 40  Let all things be done decently and in order.

The other Other denominations do wrongfully limit to God speaking to us only in his Words the Bible or through only the preacher.  Now the word of God is generally revealed to us in two different ways. There is written direct Scripture (the Greek word logos), which shows us all  God's general will. There are next also times when the Holy Spirit quickens a particular Scripture or otherwise gives us a direct word (the Greek word rhema) concerning God's specific will in a particular  situation. We have to be open to both ways too. 

1  Corinthians,   12: 1 - 3:  Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant:

Once a person has been personally now accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior, both, they will next be baptized with the Holy Spirit, and clearly he or she will start becoming a different person. This generally will happen in two different ways:

-The Holy Spirit will continually empower the believer with new abilities, called "The Gifts of the Holy Spirit." These gifts enable the believer to do the Lord's work in new and sometimes miraculous ways. Think of them as "birthday gifts" in honor of their new birth but they are also gifts to equip one to service Christ and the body of Christ much better . The gift of the Holy spirit themselves are never an adequate substitute for having the fruit of the Holy spirit now too

- As the believer next also makes daily conscious choices to submit to the gentle leading of the indwelling Holy Spirit, the believer's character is changed. The resulting visible new character traits are called "The Fruit of the Spirit" - . The fruit of the Holy spirit themselves are never an adequate substitute for having the gifts of the Holy spirit now too
 
Note you want to be blessed, do try to keep all of God's laws then.. No matter how much I do still say it many people still do not do it know the Bible or do not follow it.. I have often said spend more time in getting to know God's words directly, read the Bible more.. and do not rather read what the still mostly liars do say about the Bible, and anything else they say. Men's opinions are useless to God's real, whole truth still too! Let God interpret, teach you his word  and not the mostly mere, useless men and women. Stop praising mere men and women, praise God and worship him.. and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
 
(Isa 66:2 KJV)  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.


While the YOUNG, IMMATURE BELIEVERS CAN STILL BE MISLED HERE ABOUT PROPHECYINGS THIS IS A STILL VALID EXPERIENCE.

(John 10:27 KJV)  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

The WHOLE Church is to also encourage the personal development of gifts of the Holy Spirit, especially prophecy, even by a praise and worship service even allowing Emphasis on personal and directive prophecy.. Often what we hear, see instead is messages, semons, books on Unsubtantiated still futrture propEhcy of  future events and thus  For very good reasons still "Beloved" I often do not believe in EVERYTHING I read, hear and ESPECIALLY IN BOOKS, TV, TAPES, AND ESPECIALLY ON THE INTERNET, or everything I want to believe in fact I seem to find many Christian sites where you still have to separate the meat from  the bones.. EVEN cause they are still wrongfully mixed with truths and half truths, lies, facts being presented as the  truth but are still not substantiated Biblically, rather they are an isolated, distorted,  one man's interpretation of the Bible. And just cause a person tells one truth does not indicate now that everything else that they do point out next is the truth still.  Real, live, genuine bait is still the best way to catch even fish, suckers.. so do always watch out.

(2 Pet 1:20 KJV)  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

(2 Pet 2:1 KJV)  But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2  And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3  And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
I was surprised to read it is not just today that some people object to anyone prophesying.
 
(1 Cor 14:39 KJV)  Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.. 40   Let all things be done decently and in order.
 
(Num 11:24 KJV)  And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the LORD, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the tabernacle. 25 And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease. 26  But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp. 27  And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp. 28  And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them. 29  And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the LORD'S people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!
 
(1 Sam 10:10 KJV)  And when they came thither to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him; and the spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them.
 
(1 Sam 10:11 KJV)  And it came to pass, when all that knew him before time saw that, behold, he prophesied among the prophets, then the people said one to another, What is this that is come unto the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?
 
(1 Sam 19:20 KJV)  And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied.21  And when it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise. And Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they prophesied also.22 Then went he also to Ramah, and came to a great well that is in Sechu: and he asked and said, Where are Samuel and David? And one said, Behold, they be at Naioth in Ramah.23  And he went thither to Naioth in Ramah: and the spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied, until he came to Naioth in Ramah.24 And he stripped off his clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Wherefore they say, Is Saul also among the prophets?
 
(1 Chr 25:1 KJV)  Moreover David and the captains of the host separated to the service of the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with harps, with psalteries, and with cymbals: and the number of the workmen according to their service was: 2  Of the sons of Asaph; Zaccur, and Joseph, and Nethaniah, and Asarelah, the sons of Asaph under the hands of Asaph, which prophesied according to the order of the king . 3  Of Jeduthun: the sons of Jeduthun; Gedaliah, and Zeri, and Jeshaiah, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the hands of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with a harp, to give thanks and to praise the LORD.
 
(2 Chr 20:37 KJV)  Then Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, the LORD hath broken thy works. And the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish.
 
(Ezra 5:1 KJV)  Then the prophets, Haggai the prophet, and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied unto the Jews that were in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, even unto them. 2 Then rose up Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and began to build the house of God which is at Jerusalem: and with them were the prophets of God helping them.
 
(Ezek 38:17 KJV)  Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
 
(Ezek 20:3 KJV)  Son of man, speak unto the elders of Israel, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Are ye come to inquire of me? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you.31  For when ye offer your gifts, when ye make your sons to pass through the fire, ye pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this day: and shall I be inquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you.
 
There are also false prophesying.
 
(Jer 2:8 KJV)  The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.
 
(1 Ki 22:10 KJV)  And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah sat each on his throne, having put on their robes, in a void place in the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them.. 11And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron: and he said, Thus saith the LORD, With these shalt thou push the Syrians, until thou have consumed them.12 And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the king's hand.13And the messenger that was gone to call Micaiah spake unto him, saying, Behold now, the words of the prophets declare good unto the king with one mouth: let thy word, I pray thee, be like the word of one of them, and speak that which is good.14  And Micaiah said, As the LORD liveth, what the LORD saith unto me, that will I speak.15  So he came to the king. And the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall we forbear? And he answered him, Go, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the hand of the king.16And the king said unto him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou tell me nothing but that which is true in the name of the LORD? 17  And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace. 18 And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil?
 
(Jer 20:6 KJV)  And thou, Pashur, and all that dwell in thine house shall go into captivity: and thou shalt come to Babylon, and there thou shalt die, and shalt be buried there, thou, and all thy friends, to whom thou hast prophesied lies.
 
(1 Sam 18:10 KJV)  And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul's hand.11 And Saul cast the javelin; for he said, I will smite David even to the wall with it. And David avoided out of his presence twice.
 
(Jer 23:13 KJV)  And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err. 14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land. 16Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD. 17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. 18  For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it? 19  Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. 20The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. 21  I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. 22  But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
 
(Jer 25:13 KJV)  And I will bring upon that land all my words which I have pronounced against it, even all that is written in this book, which Jeremiah hath prophesied against all the nations.
 
(Jer 29:31 KJV)  Send to all them of the captivity, saying, Thus saith the LORD concerning Shemaiah the Nehelamite; Because that Shemaiah hath prophesied unto you, and I sent him not, and he caused you to trust in a lie: 32 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite, and his seed: he shall not have a man to dwell among this people; neither shall he behold the good that I will do for my people, saith the LORD; because he hath taught rebellion against the LORD.
 
(Jer 37:19 KJV)  Where are now your prophets which prophesied unto you, saying, The king of Babylon shall not come against you, nor against this land?
 
but true prophets continue to prophesy God's words to others.
 
(Ezek 11:13 KJV)  And it came to pass, when I prophesied, that Pelatiah the son of Benaiah died. Then fell I down upon my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou make a full end of the remnant of Israel?
 
(Ezek 37:7 KJV)  So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. 8  And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. 9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. 10  So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
 
(Zec 13:1 KJV)  In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.
 
(Zec 13:2 KJV)  And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.3  And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.4 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:5  But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.
 
(Mat 15:7 KJV)  Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
 
(Mat 7:22 KJV)  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
 
(Mat 11:13 KJV)  For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
 
THEN THE APOSTLES, JESUS AND THE NEW TESTAMENT PROPHETS TOOK OVER..
 
(Mark 7:6 KJV)  He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
 
(Luke 1:63 KJV)  And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all....    (Luke 1:67 KJV)  And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, 68  Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, 69  And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; 70  As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: 71  That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; 72  To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant; 73  The oath which he sware to our father Abraham, 74  That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, 75  In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life. 76  And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways; 77  To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins, 78  Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, 79  To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. 80  And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel.
 
(Acts 19:6 KJV)  And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.
 
(1 Cor 14:5 KJV)  I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.
 
(1 Pet 1:10 KJV)  Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
 
(Jude 1:14 KJV)  And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
 
(Acts 2:17 KJV)  And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
 
(Acts 21:9 KJV)  And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy.
 
(Rom 12:6 KJV)  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
 
(1 Cor 13:9 KJV)  For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
 
(1 Cor 14:1 KJV)  Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.
 
(1 Cor 14:24 KJV)  But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all:
 
(1 Cor 14:29 KJV)  Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
 
(1 Cor 14:31 KJV)  For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.
 
(Rev 10:11 KJV)  And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
 
(Rev 11:3 KJV)  And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
 
While I strongly agreed with one person's test of prophecy I rightfully did not agree with his definition of  prohecy or many of his other distorted opinions. This person firstly had said that prophecy today was not the interpretation of tongues, and  this person is misleading you for false reasons still, firstly he is not being consistent with true Bible studies where the used  identical words do not change meanings next  to suit one's point of views..  and where one defines any word by it's usage in the whole Bible, and not in just one verse too.

I still rightfully  do use the scripture first to interpret all of the words in it too, the  scriptures and not any dictionaries or another false persons views, but to do this you have to be in the Word, and be familiar with it too. Wrongfully not many people still are, even pastors.

Now the Word of God clearly says that if you pray in tongues, you should pray that you will also interpret - not only for the benefit of others - but for your own benefit as well.

(1 Cor 14:4 KJV)  He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. 5  I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.
 
Prophecy is expressing the deep inner feelings, voice of the Holy Spirit to this generation.  Prophecy as stated in the New Testament  clearly here, requires next no new redefinitions, it is the "edification" through the interpretations of  the language of the Holy Spirit into English for example for the benefit of others and ourselves too.

(1 Cor 14:13 KJV)  Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret. (And no exceptions now too)

Sadly some people want to wrongfully exalt "speaking in tongues" over prophecy.. too bad for them.. and they thus do try to misinterpret what prophecy still is.. rather know and  read the Word first and not their views...

(Rom 12:6 KJV)  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

(1 Cor 12:10 KJV)  To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

(1 Cor 13:2 KJV)  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

(1 Tim 4:14 KJV)  Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.

(2 Pet 1:19 KJV)  We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

(2 Pet 1:20 KJV)  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy
Ghost.

(Rev 1:3 KJV)  Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time
is at hand.

(Rev 11:6 KJV)  These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

(Rev 19:10 KJV)  And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
A true prophecy exalts Jesus, not man or the anti Christ..

(Rev 22:7 KJV)  Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

(Rev 22:10 KJV)  And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

(Rev 22:18 KJV)  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

(Rev 22:19 KJV)  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

While a prophecy is "an unpredictable  gushing forth still from God, and from His Holy Spirit of God's truths to the body of Christ, and it is not from with in us," for in us there is no good..

" Seven Ways to Judge Prophecy

1. By their fruits you shall know them. (Matthew 7:16-18,20)
2. Does it glorify Christ? (John 16:14; I Corinthians 12:3; I John 4:1-2)
3. Does it agree with the Scriptures? (Isaiah 8:20)
4. Are their prophecies fulfilled? (Deuteronomy 18:22) Some prophecies are
not of God even though they may come to pass. The benchmark remains that all
prophecies should exalt the Lord Jesus.
5. Is the prophecy disjointed or confused? True prophecy is line upon line
and precept upon precept. (Isaiah 28:13)
6. Do the prophecies produce liberty in Christ or false bondage to the
world, the flesh, the devil , men? (Romans 8:15)
7. All believers have an unction (anointing) within them that tells them
when something is wrong. Prophecies should witness with the still small
voice of the Holy Spirit in us too if we are rightfully walking with God
firstly. (I John 2:20,27)"
 
Why Is Prophecy Important? or is it rather maintaining  our continual relationship with Jesus that is more rightfully important still, firstly.

There are at least five reasons why prophecy is so important in the local church? ( if you do believe that this is a true Biblical interpretation of  the verses. and who says it is?) Too many people still do quote inapplicable facts , verses even below..

1. It brings life. Prophecy brought life to the valley of dry bones (Ezekiel 37:1-4).
2. It gives spiritual vision? The Bible says, "Where there is no vision, the people perish.' The Lord gives vision through the prophetic word (Proverbs 29:13,18).
3. It edifies, exhorts, and comforts (I Corinthians 14:3). ( it can rebuke as well..)
4. It brings revival and restoration? True prophecy brings restoration and
revival (Acts 2:16-18). ( but not everyone was revived in the same place too.)
5. It can guide you personally  to your own right position in the Body of Christ?  Prophecy can also be used by God to direct you where you need to go (Acts 13:1-3)
 
(2 Cor 13:1 KJV)  In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

(1 Cor 14:39 KJV)  Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

(1 Cor 14:40 KJV)  Let all things be done decently and in order.

PROPHECY IS PERSONALLY PROCLAIMING DIRECTLY GOD'S WORD SPECIFICALLY FOR A SPECIFIC GROUP.. You do not have to be a Prophet to prophecy, in fact all believers are encouraged to use the gift of prophecy firstly too. (John 17:21 KJV)  That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. (1 Cor 14:31 KJV)  For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.

The Christian People who have learned to use faithfully the gifts of prophecy tend to become God true Prophets. God's prophets ALSO TOO do work two ways. Most of the time, they speak forth God's will in accordance with Scripture. At certain times, they will EVEN foretell future events.  In real life, prophecy works like a combination of the Word of Wisdom and Faith. The prophet operates in the Lord's wisdom, and speaks in faith in obedience to the Holy Spirit.

Some characteristics of the New Testament prophets:

"I never remember, in all my Christian course, a period now (in March 1895) of sixty-nine years and four months, that I ever SINCERELY and PATIENTLY sought to know the will of God by the teaching of the Holy Ghost, through the instrumentality of the word of God, but I have been ALWAYS directed rightly. But if honesty of heart and uprightness before God were lacking, or if I did not patiently wait upon God for instruction, or if I preferred the counsel of my fellow men to the declarations of the word of the living God, I made great mistakes."    --from the classic biography of George Mueller, "George Müller of Bristol,"
 
Some  persons even in Christianity, in the Church, they make little or no sincere effort to seek God  personally and daily even to Him speak to them.
 
But God has commanded everyone to search for Him and to read, but also to know and to apply his word and to seek Him... They also wrongfully, wickedly only  consult  other mere men to tell them what they have already made up their mind that they want to hear.. They merely pretend, make a show as though they hunger  and thirst for the truth of God.

(Psa 119:2 KJV)  Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
 
(Num 12:6 KJV)  And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream. 2  My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.  8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses? 9  And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.

(Rom 12:6 KJV)  6  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; (1 Cor 14:12 KJV)  Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual  gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.(1 Cor 12:1 KJV)  Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not haveyou ignorant.

Many people do not even also know what it means to prophecy.. they have not asked God to tell them, rather only the mere useless men and women

 
(1 Cor 11:1 KJV) 14:1  Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. 2  For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.  3  But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. 4  He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that  prophesieth edifieth the church. 5  I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying. (1 Cor 14:12 KJV)  Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.  13  Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.

(1 Cor 14:31 KJV)  For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.

(Rom 12:6 KJV)  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

Here is one of the basic evidence of false pastors, false teachers, false prophets who say that prophecies do not exist today.. what are they really afraid of ? God speaking and showing forth the reality of their still unrepentant of sins?

When the Apostle Paul said that (1 Cor 14:18 KJV)  I thank my God, I speak  with tongues more than ye all: he clearly was not talking about  speaking in other people's languages to the unbelievers..Paul also said that  (1 Cor 14:5 KJV)  I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.

While there are genuine prophecies from God being uttered in the church, there are also false ones being uttered next  too by persons calling to be true spokesman for God ironically too...

(Rev 19:10 KJV)  And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Think that some prophecy you heard, read about is Biblical too?.. well does it talk about  and uplift Jesus only.. if not it is a false prophecy, a false  diversion..

 Secondly as God directly taught me too, (1 Cor 10:24 KJV)  Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth. and that means caring about their physical well being now as well.. and it also means also  the pastors, elders laying their hands on them and healing them in Jesus name.. I am of the firm, rightful belief that it is always, always God's will to  heal us physically, to deliver us, to save us! To me our basic right to praying for personal physical healing has being provided in the atoning death of the Lord Jesus Christ and it is God's  children's bread, applicable to all of God's people even daily by faith. While some sickness can be associated with unconfessed personal sins, not just the oppression of the devil and demons, next if we confess our sins and pray for healing God heals physically and forgives us spiritually and concurrently.(Isa 53:5 KJV)  But he was wounded  for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Thus healing others by prayer is a tool all Pastors must exercise now as well. Those people who do in ignorance distort the scriptures and say that healing and tongues have been done away with now too and quite out of context Bible verses need to relook at the Bible.. (1 Cor 13:8 KJV)  Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away. 9  For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. 10  But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. 11  When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 13  And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. 14:1  Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

When we all personally see Jesus Christ face to face than the gifts of tongues and healing will be done away with also, for there will be no need for them too.

(Mat 5:19 KJV)  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

(Rev 22:18 KJV)  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

(Ezek 13:1 KJV)  And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2  Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the LORD;3  Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! 4  O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. 5  Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD. 6  They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word. 7  Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken? 8  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD. 9  And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.  10  Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered mortar: 11  Say unto them which daub it with untempered mortar, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it. 12  Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it? 13  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it. 14  So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
15  Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered mortar, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it; 16  To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord GOD. 17  Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou against them, 18  And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you? 19  And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your lies? 20  Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly. 21  Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. 22  Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should  not return from his wicked way, by promising him life: 23  Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

    It seems too many men and women are even these days calling themselves as being God's prophets and prophetess, they are too ready to give advice, views, opinions predictions to others,  and rather they  do too readily claim, in and out the churches, that  they  are speaking God's words supposedly when they have never been even called to the task,, they firstly themselves have not even yet genuinely repented.. and by their own fruits you can really still tell who they are.. adulterers, liars, murders, coveters, thieves, slanders, etc..,

True prophecy and prophets would ask the people, even God's people, believers  to repent, and their words next would  cause conviction even cause some of  them to repent..

While the false prophets abound in contrast the true prophets are not listened to, respected..

(Ezek 33:31 KJV)  And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. 32  And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not. 33  And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.

(Micah 2:6 KJV)  Prophesy ye not, say they to them that prophesy: they shall not prophesy to them, that they shall not take shame.7  O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the LORD straitened? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?

I Jn 4:1-5, 1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. 4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5 They are from the world and therefore speak from the  viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them.

False persons also do  have a hidden agenda, their acquiring more personal glory, honor, wealth for a start.. and thus they try to be men pleasers, not God pleasers.. by the way they also really don't have faith in God to supply their needs.

2 Pet 2:1-3, 1 But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them-- bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3 In their greed these
teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

The Prophets and Teachers tend to go together.. the teacher next expounds what the prophet original had said... and when you hear a false prophet, he or she will also have a false teacher too besides them..

(2 Cor 13:1 KJV)  This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

The False teachers also would have us even today try still to take our eyes of Jesus and look unto Man or women. False persons do often tell you they have Godly truth to share with you too.. from the Bible as well.. They only teach partial truths for a start.. they lie a lot next too.

I was sitting in a church and God spoke to me and said you do not love the Pastor. I said in shock "God what do you mean I am sitting in his Church". God spoke to me and said "you tolerate him. If this was your favorite pastor in  Montreal and he had sinned in 15 minutes you would have been in his office asking him to repent. and this man has been sinning for years as you even know and you did nothing about it". Humbly I said God forgive me and deal with Him. A few days later God said loudly to me "now go and ask him to repent". But God I said I prayed about it and asked you to deal with it and God said to me. "I will use you to answer your prayers". "The policeman has also to do a dirty job, one that he does not always like, and not all the jobs I give to you are pleasant ones"

I was in another  church service for the second week when God spoke to me and said what are you doing here? he repeated that question to me three times. and embaressingly I said I am in your church. God replied these are the rich who persecute the poor, leave them.. but before he let me leave he asked me to stand up in Church, not to my desire for sure.. and denounce openly the pastor's personal unrepentant sins.. lying and a big  pride included. Boy was the Church really embraessed, made ashamed

(Rev 2:16 KJV)  Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

(Rev 2:5 KJV)  Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

(Rev 2:21 KJV)  And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

(Rev 2:22 KJV)  Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

(Rev 3:3 KJV)  Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

(Rev 3:19 KJV)  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

(Jer 18:1 KJV)  The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2  Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. 3  Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. 4  And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. 5  Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 6  O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel. 7  At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; 8  If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. 9  And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; 10  If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.

(Jer 18:11 KJV)  Now therefore go to, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you: return ye now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good. 12  And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart. 13  Therefore thus saith the LORD; Ask ye now among the heathen, who hath heard such things: the virgin of Israel hath done a very horrible thing. 14  Will a man leave the snow of Lebanon which cometh from the rock of the field? or shall the cold flowing waters that come from another place be forsaken? 15  Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;  16  To make their land desolate, and a perpetual hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished, and wag his head. 17  I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will show them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity.
 
(Jer 18:18 KJV)  Then said they, Come, and let us devise devices against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words. 19  Give heed to me, O LORD, and hearken to the voice of them that contend with me. 20  Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a pit for my soul. Remember that I stood before thee to speak good for them, and to turn away thy wrath from them. 21  Therefore deliver up their children to the famine, and pour out their blood by the force of the sword; and let their wives be bereaved of their children, and be widows; and let their men be put to death; let their young men be slain by the sword in battle. 22  Let a cry be heard from their houses, when thou shalt bring a troop suddenly upon them: for they have digged a pit to take me, and hid snares for my feet. 23  Yet, LORD, thou knowest all their counsel against me to slay me: forgive not their iniquity, neither blot out their sin from thy sight, but let them be overthrown before thee; deal thus with them in the time of thine anger.
 
(Jer 26:12 KJV)  Then spake Jeremiah unto all the princes and to all the people, saying, The LORD sent me to prophesy against this house and against this city all the words that ye have heard. 13  Therefore now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the LORD your God; and the LORD will repent him of the evil that he hath pronounced against you.

(Jer 5:14 KJV)  Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them. 15  Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the LORD: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say. 16  Their quiver is as an open sepulchre, they are all mighty men. 17  And they shall eat up thine harvest, and thy bread, which thy sons and thy daughters should eat: they shall eat up thy flocks and thine herds: they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees: they shall impoverish thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst, with the sword. 18 Nevertheless in those days, saith the LORD, I will not make a full end with
you. 19  And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say, Wherefore doeth the LORD our God all these things unto us? then shalt thou answer them, Like as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers in a land that is not yours. 20  Declare this in the house of Jacob, and publish it in Judah, saying, 21  Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not: 22  Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it? 23  But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. 24  Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest. 25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you. 26  For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. 27  As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. 28  They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. 29  Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? 30  A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; 31  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

So where is the real  problem in negative prophecies, in  negatively judging, and disciplining others when it is now done under God's orders and in his love too? The real problem is still the unrepentant ostriches who do not want to hear the truth,  also is the immoral persons, and the cowards who run away from doing God's will, even  like Jonah, THE SAME PEOPLE WHO FALSELY PICK AND CHOSE THE PARTS OF THE BIBLE THEY LIKE AND DISLIKE, WILL OR WILL NOT DO.
 
NOW COMING TO THE SUBJECT OF FUTURE PROPHECY.  My own personal experiences so far has also been that a rightfully interpretation of the book of Revelation starts first with dealing with the believers, the various types of churches.. God seems to always desires that first Christians themselves get their own lives, and their own families, their own cities  in order,  and that they also next do God's work as well elsewhere..
 
(Isa 66:2 KJV)  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.3   He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. 4  I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. 5 Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. 6 A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the LORD that rendereth recompense to his enemies.

"Loud, proud, arrogantly, bold, sensationalized" are the false headings of the many supposedly true, Future Prophetic Books and even some of the SIMILAR internet pages. Now mark even this in direct contrast to how the Apostle John in the book of Revelation received these Revelations and  also how the great old testament saint Daniel in the book of Daniel received and shared them.  And let all of the too often false Darby, Scofield, Moody, Dallas Theological students, professors note this truth now  as well.. Much of what is being presented under the guise of prophetic events is not only distortions of isolated verses of the Bible but it is also being presented in a very wrong manner now too... in a false pride. And like Apostle Paul said only fools do this too.  (2 Cor 12:6 KJV)  For though I would desire to
glory, I shall not be a fool;.

(Rev 1:9 KJV)  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10  I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11  Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and  unto Laodicea. 12  And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13  And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14  His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15  And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16  And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17  And when I
saw him, I fell at his feet as dead.

(Dan 2:1 KJV)  And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him..2  Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to show the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king. 3  And the king said unto them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream....   16  Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would show the king the interpretation. 17  Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions: 18  That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret;

(Dan 2:30 KJV)  But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.

(Dan 7:28 KJV)   Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.

Daniel next here too did not boast about the future prophetic revelations that he had received, or of any of his supposed superior spirituality now as well.

(Dan 8:26 KJV)   And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days. 27  And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but none understood it.

Daniel rather became sick at this revelation... Furthermore more Daniel made these revealed items  items for more  personal prayer, fastings.. and he clearly did not use them to brow beat the  unbelievers or other believers over the head with them now next  too..

(Dan 9:2 KJV)  In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. 3 And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes:

(Dan 9:21 KJV)  Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation.22  And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding.

(Dan 10:1 KJV)  In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, but the time appointed was long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision. 2  In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. 3  I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks

True to his spirituality and humbleness, Daniel fasted, mourned, prayed about the future prophetic events revealed to him firstly too..

Note this verse

(Dan 12:4 KJV)  But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Note this again..

(Dan 12:9 KJV)  And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.10  Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.  11  And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. 12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. 13  But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.

Even prophetic Revelations from God are not always given to be next expounded to all of the others, nor to be used to  beat others over the head with them

Even Apostle paul who may have had possible reasons to boast because  of "the abundant of the Revelations made known to him" did not, he stayed humbled also

.(2 Cor 12:1 KJV)  It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. (2 Cor 12:6 KJV)  For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool;.

(2 Cor 12:7 KJV)  And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.8  For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in
persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. 11  I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very 
chiefest apostles, though I be nothing.

John and Daniel  received and presented the Revelations with a humble mind, and spirit.. and so should we now too..

(Psa 51:17 KJV)  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

(Isa 28:13 KJV)  But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

(2 Cor 4:7 KJV)  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
 
(1 Cor 13:2 KJV)  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.3   And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 4  Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5  Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
 
(John 15:13 KJV)  Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14  Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 15  Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
 
(1 Cor 14:29 KJV)  Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge. 30  If any thing be revealed to another that sitteth by, let the first hold his peace. 31  For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. 32  And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. 33  For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
 
(Gal 1:10 KJV)  For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 11  But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
 
I was still very surprised next when a person even wrote to me to  tell me even what I could and could not write to them in my email .. for they are dreaming..  even since when do people have a choice as to what message of God delivered by the prophets they can select or not select too?
 
I do not write to please any persons and that should have been clearly evident also by now too.I work to please God firstly, not even myself.  So should we all.
 
I also do believe in prophecy which is  the interpretations of tongues into English for example  for the edification of other believers  but I substantiate rightfully all prophecies given still with the word of God still for I  personal have met, dealt with too many false prophecies, false persons too., who gave Prophecies that are emotionally pleasing  to some but are not from God still
 
(2 Tim 3:16 KJV)  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17  That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
 
Even in one local Church I was in an assistant pastor's wife even  gave a prophecy to the whole church and she had at the same time was having an adulterous relationship with another person. She made a mockery of God and his people rather.
 
I do mostly prefer to quote and read the Bible and not rather the too often man made, unwitnessed prophecy.. all you have to do is go on the net and you will find tons of persons claiming to give forth God's prophecies too and they are even contradictory now as well.. but there are genuine valid prophecies as well that we should not neglect.
 
Such is the reality still too.
 
(Rev 22:18 KJV)  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
 
(Rev 22:19 KJV)  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 20  He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
 
" Prophecy is not the mind or words of man. Prophecy is the mind and words of Christ spoken through His Prophets. Prophecy is one of the Gifts that the Holy Spirit gives to us out of love, and our obedience to serve Him.

Joel; 2:28-29 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

Gifts of the Holy Spirit are to be a part of the Christian walk and fellowship with the Lord!

A Prophetic anointing to Prophecy is scriptural and edifies those who believe, in the body of Christ! It is also a call to personal repentances.

Prophecy is also Gods way to comfort us and quiet the fear of the future.

THE LORD IS ALAYS WITH US AND ARE WE WITH HIM?

THUS SAITH THE LORD....... am I not more powerful than man, saith the Lord? Am I not Able to do All Things?

To whom can ye go in the Time of Trouble? Behold I shall help thee, and thou shalt not faint in the way which thou goeth.

Have I not chosen thee to deliver My People, and to confound the enemy? Yea, I have seen thee, as the cross was laid upon thee, and man reviled thee.

I was there at the time of Affliction, when men did not care. I was there when the tears ran down thine eyes, and man Doubted thee and Tormented thee. I was there when Fear Filled Thine Heart, and yet thou hadest no way to go.

Behold, I held the wicked in strong chains when thou wast afraid, and yet thou didst Tremble Within. How long, didst thou say in thine Heart Unto Me? And yet it seemed the Heavens Were Brass within thee. Yet, in all of this, thou didst Trust in Me. Thou didst not Accuse Me, saith the Lord. Thou didst Call Upon Me, and I did answer thee. Man said that I was not with thee, but yea I strengthened thee and Upheld thee with My right hand.

Again and again man reviled thee and made sport of thee, but I was with thee unto this hour.

Yet Gradually Every Storm Did Cease and I was seen in the midst, as I extended My Hand Unto Thee. Yea, thou wouldest surely have been overcome, but I saved thee out it. Now can thou find them? Where are they? Have I not descended upon the, and Bound Them Up? Have I not cast them unto the Uttermost Part, yea far from thee?

Be Fearful No More, for I shall exalt thee in the midst of them. Yea, thy Tormentors shall fall, and he that lieth against thee shall cease.  For I am with thee saith the Lord !

ALWAYS CONTINUE TO LOOK UNTO THE LORD AND NOT UNTO MAN

Would I not call thee forth as a chosen people, saith the Lord? Yet thou looketh unto man for thy help, and he turneth from thee. Behold, this day, the Word of the Lord. Behold, I am thy Champion, and I shall win for thee, and Deliver thee from the Arrow that Flyeth at Noonday, saith the Lord. For now is the time. Now is the day of Deliverance, wherein I shall set thee free.

No more shalt thou be tossed about. No more shalt thou fear, for I have Delighted in thee. Yea, no more shalt thou be Barren, but thou shalt bring forth fruit. Yea, fruit well ripened, even as one that has Endured Hardness as a good soldier of the cross.

Thou shalt Delight in thy God. Thou shalt not fear man, for with God all things are possible. I shall send forth the former and the latter rain in one season, saith the Lord. Yea, thou shalt go forth in Abundance, having no shame upon thee, for I have delighted in thee, to reverse the decision of the enemy. Cry not, but Rejoice, for I have Heard thee, to Spare thee, and to Reward thee in Due season.

Faint not, but know that I am God, saith the Lord. For are not the Times and Seasons Drawing to a Close, saith the Lord? Would I not Work quickly, to Gather in My Harvest, saith the Lord. Walk ye in Faithfulness to My Word. Rejoice exceedingly, for I will turn ye to Peace.

For I am with thee, saith the Lord.

Why do some people wrongfully oppose prophecies.. they do not want you to be comforted, taught directly.. they instead want to have a false  personal control over you

I was surprised to read it is not just today that some people object to anyone prophesying.
 
(1 Cor 14:39 KJV)  Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.. 40   Let all things be done decently and in order.
 
(Num 11:24 KJV)  And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the LORD, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the tabernacle. 25 And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease. 26  But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp. 27  And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp. 28  And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them. 29  And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the LORD'S people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!
 
(1 Sam 10:10 KJV)  And when they came thither to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him; and the spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them.
 
(1 Sam 10:11 KJV)  And it came to pass, when all that knew him before time saw that, behold, he prophesied among the prophets, then the people said one to another, What is this that is come unto the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?
 
(1 Sam 19:20 KJV)  And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied.21  And when it was told Saul, he sent other messengers, and they prophesied likewise. And Saul sent messengers again the third time, and they prophesied also.22 Then went he also to Ramah, and came to a great well that is in Sechu: and he asked and said, Where are Samuel and David? And one said, Behold, they be at Naioth in Ramah.23  And he went thither to Naioth in Ramah: and the spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied, until he came to Naioth in Ramah.24 And he stripped off his clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Wherefore they say, Is Saul also among the prophets?
 
(1 Chr 25:1 KJV)  Moreover David and the captains of the host separated to the service of the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with harps, with psalteries, and with cymbals: and the number of the workmen according to their service was: 2  Of the sons of Asaph; Zaccur, and Joseph, and Nethaniah, and Asarelah, the sons of Asaph under the hands of Asaph, which prophesied according to the order of the king . 3  Of Jeduthun: the sons of Jeduthun; Gedaliah, and Zeri, and Jeshaiah, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the hands of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with a harp, to give thanks and to praise the LORD.
 
(2 Chr 20:37 KJV)  Then Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, the LORD hath broken thy works. And the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish.
 
(Ezra 5:1 KJV)  Then the prophets, Haggai the prophet, and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied unto the Jews that were in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, even unto them. 2 Then rose up Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and began to build the house of God which is at Jerusalem: and with them were the prophets of God helping them.
 
(Ezek 38:17 KJV)  Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?
 
(Ezek 20:3 KJV)  Son of man, speak unto the elders of Israel, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Are ye come to inquire of me? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you.31  For when ye offer your gifts, when ye make your sons to pass through the fire, ye pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this day: and shall I be inquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you.
 
There are also false prophesying.
 
(Jer 2:8 KJV)  The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.
 
(1 Ki 22:10 KJV)  And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah sat each on his throne, having put on their robes, in a void place in the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them.. 11And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron: and he said, Thus saith the LORD, With these shalt thou push the Syrians, until thou have consumed them.12 And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the king's hand.13And the messenger that was gone to call Micaiah spake unto him, saying, Behold now, the words of the prophets declare good unto the king with one mouth: let thy word, I pray thee, be like the word of one of them, and speak that which is good.14  And Micaiah said, As the LORD liveth, what the LORD saith unto me, that will I speak.15  So he came to the king. And the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall we forbear? And he answered him, Go, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the hand of the king.16And the king said unto him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou tell me nothing but that which is true in the name of the LORD? 17  And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace. 18 And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil?
 
(Jer 20:6 KJV)  And thou, Pashur, and all that dwell in thine house shall go into captivity: and thou shalt come to Babylon, and there thou shalt die, and shalt be buried there, thou, and all thy friends, to whom thou hast prophesied lies.
 
(1 Sam 18:10 KJV)  And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul's hand.11 And Saul cast the javelin; for he said, I will smite David even to the wall with it. And David avoided out of his presence twice.
 
(Jer 23:13 KJV)  And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err. 14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land. 16Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD. 17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. 18  For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it? 19  Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. 20The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. 21  I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. 22  But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
 
(Jer 25:13 KJV)  And I will bring upon that land all my words which I have pronounced against it, even all that is written in this book, which Jeremiah hath prophesied against all the nations.
 
(Jer 29:31 KJV)  Send to all them of the captivity, saying, Thus saith the LORD concerning Shemaiah the Nehelamite; Because that Shemaiah hath prophesied unto you, and I sent him not, and he caused you to trust in a lie: 32 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite, and his seed: he shall not have a man to dwell among this people; neither shall he behold the good that I will do for my people, saith the LORD; because he hath taught rebellion against the LORD.
 
(Jer 37:19 KJV)  Where are now your prophets which prophesied unto you, saying, The king of Babylon shall not come against you, nor against this land?
 
but true prophets continue to prophesy God's words to others.
 
(Ezek 11:13 KJV)  And it came to pass, when I prophesied, that Pelatiah the son of Benaiah died. Then fell I down upon my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou make a full end of the remnant of Israel?
 
(Ezek 37:7 KJV)  So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. 8  And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. 9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. 10  So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
 
(Zec 13:1 KJV)  In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.
 
(Zec 13:2 KJV)  And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.3  And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.4 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:5  But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.
 
(Mat 15:7 KJV)  Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
 
(Mat 7:22 KJV)  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
 
(Mat 11:13 KJV)  For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
 
(Mark 7:6 KJV)  He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
 
(Luke 1:63 KJV)  And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all....    (Luke 1:67 KJV)  And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, 68  Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, 69  And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; 70  As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: 71  That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; 72  To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant; 73  The oath which he sware to our father Abraham, 74  That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, 75  In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life. 76  And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways; 77  To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins, 78  Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, 79  To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. 80  And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel.
 
(Acts 19:6 KJV)  And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.
 
(1 Cor 14:5 KJV)  I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.
 
(1 Pet 1:10 KJV)  Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
 
(Jude 1:14 KJV)  And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
 
(Acts 2:17 KJV)  And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
 
(Acts 21:9 KJV)  And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy.
 
(Rom 12:6 KJV)  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
 
(1 Cor 13:9 KJV)  For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
 
(1 Cor 14:1 KJV)  Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

Sample Prophecies..

Warning to the Wicked and Comfort to the Christians

Yea, O ye my people, saith the Lord. Yea, O ye who are called. Yea, ye who have been afflicted, and have no rest, saith the Lord. How long shall the wicked abuse thee? How long shalt thou be put under foot, saith the Lord.

Behold, I have given you understanding. I have given you to know me. I have given you to say, Praise The Lord. Behold thine enemy is filled with fury. For he goeth about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, behold I have spoken, even from the heavens, saith the Lord. Ye shall not touch mine anointed. Ye shall not touch my called. Ye shall not touch mine honored. For I am the chastener, saith the God. I am the deliverer saith the Lord. I shall require of thee saith the Lord.

Now the righteous cry, now they roar. Now they speak, and none listeneth. For did I not speak unto thee, that such a day would come saith God? For did I not forewarn thee? Now that day is nigh at hand, even the time of Jacobs' trouble. But he shall be saved out of it. It is a time of great wrath. A time of great trouble, such as hath not been from this day unto that. The mockers are in the streets and laughing, even as they mocked Elisha, when they said unto him go up ye bald head, go up ye bald head. How long will I restrain myself, saith God? will I hold my peace forever, saith the Lord?

Nay, I will not, saith thy God. For now shall I call from Heaven. For now, shall I plead with men. Now shall I send forth hail and blood, and Brimstone upon the evil thereof, saith God. Yea, upon those of a haughty spirit. Upon those who abuse children, and give them no rest. For the righteous call, and none heareth them, but I hear them, saith God. Yea, I will answer. Yea I will make amends. Yea, the accusers shall fall. Yea, the blind man shall see, for there shall be heard a shout. There shall be heard a cry for there shall be heard a trump. For the coming of the Lord is nigh at hand. Even the Messiah Jesus.

For they have said, I will not come. For they have said that I have forgotten. Even many that know me have turned unto the unclear sound. They have forgotten. They have laughed. They have said, that I no longer speak. That I am weak, because I am long suffering unto men.

But now I shall speak. Now shall I prevail, and show My Power. Who is likened unto me. I will raise up my Prophets. I will raise up a standard. I will raise up a might sound, and the hills and the valleys shall move at my rebuke, saith God. That which man says I will not do, Will I do. For it is a time of deception in the land.

Come ye my children. Enter into your rest, saith the Lord. Come enter into your peace, that I spoken unto you. For it is the time. Ye must enter the place that I have spoken unto you. The place I have prepared for thee, from the foundation of the earth. The place of eternal peace. The place of the redeemed. For the Lord thy God, shall call from the Heavens, also the spirit of truth, who the world of ungodly men cannot receive, and shall carry you upward, saith the Lord. To the eternal city, yea the city with need of lights. The city adorned. The city four square. The city of thy dreams, Ye the city of God, upon the Mt. Zion. The city of thy vision. The city of the redeemed. The city adorned from the foundation of the world. It shall be presented unto thee. It shall be loved by thee, as thine eyes behold, so great a salvation. So great a reward. Yea, ye who have cried, feast thine eyes upon the Lord. Him who died for thine iniquities. Him who is glorious to behold. Fasten thine eye upon his vesture. Does it not say, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, saith God?

Behold, saith God, Where are the wicked? Where are their threatening words and their loud roars. Where is the sound of their bickerings, and their constant complaint? Now, hold thine hand to thy ear and listen louder, can you hear them? Nay, there is no such sound in this place saith God. For it is the mountain of God. The place of eternal rest. Yea, be thou a partaker of it. It is the day of your rest. Oh ye beloved. O ye, children of God. I will come, for I have not reserved ye for wrath. I have not reserved thee for judgement. Yea, I shall keep my promise, saith God. The refreshing shall come. The great I am Shall return. I shall call thy name. Yea, this mortal shall put on mortality, yea, this corruption shall put on incorruption, for I shall come. Yea, that where I am ye might be also. Be not troubled, I will call. The angels of the Lord shall rejoice at thy presence, saith the Lord. The redeemed of the Lord call, and I answer, and deliver, saith God. For it is the time of the Trumpet, saith God.

Hide ye in my pavilion, hide ye in my presence, saith the Lord For there is wrath upon the face of the whole earth. For there is sorrow upon the sons of men, but a rest unto my people. The rich man shall call for his gold and silver, but it shall be unheeded. He shall say, I will buy my way, as I have always done. But none shall hear, but where is his God. The one made of hands. The one he caresses. The one that he painteth and fashioneth it with his hands. For all shall fail, but he that doeth the will of the Father, shall endure forever.

Hideth these words in thine heart, O ye children of God. For behold I come Quickly, saith the Lord !!


Believe in the Lord, do his will, endure forever

Come ye forth and believe, saith the Lord. Am I not the fountain that runneth not dry? Am I not thy God, exceeding great, and mighty, saith the Lord. Behold, thine adversary shall falter, and flee from thee, even many ways, unto the uttermost parts, for I am with thee, saith the Lord. No more shall the trials maneuver thee, and leave thee barren, and cast asunder in the midst of the people, saith the Lord.

For I am fully able, saith the Lord, to uphold thee and to deliver thee each day, saith God. Walk ye in the faithfulness, of which I have shown you. Trusting not in man, nor in principalities, not people, but in the Lord thy God. For I am everlasting, unto everlasting, saith the Lord. Be not tossed about by every wind of doctrine, but believe only, and trust in Me, saith the Lord. Worry not, for the oppressor shall fall, but He that doeth the will of the Father shall endure forever.


The Lord is with you. His love for you, be not weary in well doing

Yea, Am I not with thee, saith the Lord. For I shall establish My Word upon thee, O ye My people. For the world of unbelievers shall not understand thee, but yea, I will minister My Word unto thee, and through thee, saith the Lord. For the trials of this world are not worthy to be compared to the glory that shall be revealed, saith the Lord. For I have established thee, and healed thee, that thou mayest enter into My Rest, saith the Lord.

Be ye not weary in well doing, for in due season thou shalt reap, saith God. For My peace shall overflow thee, and rain upon thee, even from everlasting, unto everlasting, saith the Lord. For that which is burdensome unto thee, shall be lightened for thee, saith God.

For I shall overflow thee with My Love, saith the Lord. Now will I do a great work, and provide for thee, that thou surely mayest enter into My Joy, and Mine everlasting covenant. For, did I not say that I will walk with thee? Did I not say that thou shalt not be overtaken, saith God? Now will I reestablish My Word upon thee, and refresh thee with My Spirit. I am the former rain and the latter rain, saith the Lord.

Fear not, O ye little lamb. O ye child of God, I shall reward thy faithfulness, saith God. And over shadowing rain of My Spirit shall strengthen thee, and shall comfort thee, saith the Lord. Thou shalt never be barren in the things of thy God, neither shalt thou be tempted more that thou art able, saith the Lord. For I am with thee, saith the Lord. All of thine enemies shall falter before thee. Yea, thou shalt look for them, but thou shalt not find them, saith God.

I have not forsaken thee. I have not turned My back upon thee. For yea, I will do the impossible thing. I will do the thing which is right, and lead thee from temptation, saith the Lord. http://www.gea.org/prophecy.htm "


"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart,  be acceptable in thy sight,  O Lord my strength and my redeemer.  "        
 
It is time...  For you to arise and shine. Awake out of your slumber.  For you have been coming to me.. but not abiding in ME
 
You despair of all that besets you.. but have not I spoken unto you that the world will hate you, for how can darkness relate to My light.  In order for you to overcome, in spite of the circumstances, in spite of trials, in spite of the emotional, physical, and or spiritual environment.. you must  abide..in Me.  It is time..
 
  You must dwell in my secret place.. you must abide under my wings.  My wings where I will empower you to mount up as an eagle.
 
But you will not draw nigh...
 
My name speaks of my drawing nigh unto you..
 
Emmanuel.. Emmanuel...
 
Now come.. unto Me..  It is time..
 
  You can no longer continue to do things your own way. It is time that you are fed with the meat of my Word.  For you as long as you search for the answers to your heart outside of Me, you can not grow beyond milk.
 
It is time...
 
  To rise above your own finite wisdom and spiritual intellect.. Come up higher..in Me.  Rise above you self sufficiency..Your righteousness is of Me.  Seek my face..seek me with your whole heart.
Come to me.. but Prepare to Abide.. to Dwell.
 
I  allow nothing to separate you for my all encompassing love for you.. now remove all that separates Me from you .  It is time.    Valette Adams    va659@hotmail.com " 2002    

 
(2 Pet 2:9 KJV)  The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
 
(Heb 10:38 KJV)  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
 
THERE IS ONLY ONE FAITH FOR PERSONAL SALVATION , FAITH  IN JESUS CHRIST ALONE, AND ONE BODY OF CHRIST, GOD, AND ONE TEMPLE,  IT IS THE CHURCH OF CHRIST.
 
A house divided against itself cannot stand (Mark 3:25)  applies to  Churches, and our homes, and our marriages too.
 
God Bless you.
