Beware – a Word of Warning

I’m well aware that self-appointed heresy-hunters who exhibit religiosity and legalism sit in judgement on prophets. This is contrary to Jesus’ own commands, including to the ex-Pharisee Paul, His Apostle to the Gentiles. For example, where Jesus’ disciples wanted to prevent others casting out demons (Luke 9:49-50), and when Paul reprimanded Roman believers for standing in judgement (Romans 2.1-2) in line with Jesus’ instruction not to judge, as at Luke 6:37.:

 “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”

As stated in An Introduction to Prophecy, dreams, visions and words delivered in private or public by those with a prophetical gifting, or in a recognised office of prophet, should be checked for alignment with scripture and the Lord, plus weighing in one’s spirit to ensure they ‘sit’ well (1Corinthians 14:29-33).

Some of the nuances of checking out prophetic words are considered scripturally by Melissa Flores in Confirmation, false confirmation and permission to royally mess up!
