They have envisioned futility and false divination, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord!’ But the Lord has not sent them; yet they hope that the word may be confirmed. Have you not seen a futile vision, and have you not spoken false divination? You say, ‘The Lord says,’ but I have not spoken.” Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Because you have spoken nonsense and envisioned lies, therefore I am indeed against you,” says the Lord God. (Ezekiel 13:6-8 NKJV)
The modern day ‘prophets’ take The Lord very lightly in saying their prophecies “don’t need to be 100% correct”. Oh really?!! I’m always amazed when people take our Holy God and make Him to be the same level as man.
“…yet they HOPE the word may be confirmed…” Doesn’t that happen in many various places today and not just at IHOP? Heads up, brothers and sisters! Don’t make light of God’s Word. He plainly says, “Because you have spoken NONSENSE and envisioned LIES, therefore I am indeed AGAINST you.”
Bearing that in mind, do you really want to sit under a leader who tells you that “growing in the prophetic” is good? And prophecies don’t “HAVE to be 100% accurate to be from The Lord”?
Side note: I’ve always wondered where “Growing in the prophetic” is in God’s word..
The next time you hear a prophetic word, ask that person what GOD says about it – the word THEY have said, should it FAIL to come to pass. If they tell you that ‘prophecy’ they’ve given ‘doesn’t need to be 100% accurate’, share Ezekiel 18 with them. If they still say it doesn’t need to be 100% correct, run, don’t walk, away from them. They’ve made themselves ‘bigger than God’ in their own eyes and He really looks down on that…
