Prophetic or Christian Fortune Telling?
Over the last few years, especially over the last year, I've become more and more turned off by so much of what is passed off as "prophecy" by men and women in the Body of Christ. Let me be absolutely clear that I am all for the prophetic and not trying to hinder that in any way, shape or form. However, a true prophetic utterance should not sound like something you'd read in the horoscope section of the newspaper. Nor should the prophet have need for you to tell him all about your situation and then he reveal to you what God is saying. Seriously? Like God really needs to have the man or woman of God interview you, pump you for information and THEN He has something for you. That's not how God works. That's how the so called psychics work and the palm readers... and now we have men and women passing themselves off as prophets of God and they are playing the same mind manipulating games that these other frauds perpetuate on society. Many are going to stand before God and give account for their deceitful manipulation... all for the power of the mighty dollar.
