What is a prophet and prophetic ministry? Prophets pull down, throw down, destroy, build, and plant. As a seer, they are spokesmen, messengers, watchmen, and ambassadors standing in the gap and making up the hedge.
Prophetic ministry and social media. There are a lot of prophets (and others) telling you what the Holy Spirit is saying. With the advent of social media and Facebook networking, you have the opportunity to read hundreds of prophetic decrees. Some of these are offered by terrific Spirit-filled Christians and others by unaccountable flaky Jezebels.
Prophetic ministry.Christians are called to teach each generation the difference between the Holy and the profane (Ezekiel 44:23). Today, all which God calls holy is under attack, and this is not the first time. In the Old Testament, God revealed to Jeremiah that His house was full of wicked prophets, priests, and corrupted ministers.
House of God and mature prophets. Prophets know how to flow with the Holy Spirit in the house of God. Our society is filled with those that come into our churches who have formerly opened themselves up to New Age mysticism, witchcraft, the occult, and spiritualism.To protect the flock from false anointing and familiar spirits, there is a proper order in which the Holy Spirit likes to flow. When you understand this order you will compass biblical prophetic operations.
Spirit of divination in prophetic ministry is one of the top ten pitfalls. Not every prophet makes it. Sexual sin, divination, witchcraft, seduction of power, fame, and fortune, and every evil thing will test the prophet's life and ministry. All prophets must keep their motives right before God.
Balaam was a true prophet that went bad and failed. Not every prophet makes it. Power, money, prestige, honor, promotions, and enticements are demonic assignments designed to pull on common ground in the heart. Prophetic ministers must avoid theses demonic assignments used to corrupt God's true prophets.
Familiar spirits attack prophetic ministry. Prophetic ministry training includes discerning demonic powers and evil spirits. In prophetic ministry, prophets carry a great blessing for the body of Christ. They also have a significant responsibility guarding their ministries against demonic encroachment while avoiding familiar spirits.
Jezebel spirit can get you in serious trouble. Jezebel was the daughter of Ethbal, king of the Sidonians. Her father was the high priest of the goddess Ashtoreth a female deity. She was given to wed Ahab king of Israel to form a covenant between the two nations. Jezebel was a wicked queen. She set out to murder the prophets of Jehovah by the thousands. The few that remained hid themselves in caves. Others compromised their prophetic ministries and gave themselves to her.
