Questions and Answers
......"But be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind..."
Frequently I get e-mail asking me what I think about certain issues or visions or dreams.
I certainly don't claim to know all there is to know, but I would like to help those that I can. I try to respond to all of my e-mail, but I must tell you, it is on the increase, and I am glad! But I would like to serve more in a general way.
If you have a question that you would like or wouldn't mind seeing publicly answered, e-mail the question to me and I will answer it on this page, as the Lord allows me to do so. Don't make it too long, and put the word "Question" or "Q & A" in the subject box of the e-mail correspondence and I will publicly answer as soon as I can.
Question: "Why does it seem that so many prophets have different words? Some will seem to even contradict. Are they false prophets?"
This is a question that is hard to answer briefly, but I will do the best I can. There are many personalities in the world, many very different. God will work with one person one way and another person another. With some, He uses forceful words, and with others, He will use gentle words to reach them. It is easier to reach a sad person with humor and a more happy person will more likely be won by logic. Some prophets use strong judgment words, while others flow in a honey love. Hopefully, it is all used to glorify Jesus. The Scriptures are the bottom line and final authority. A false prophet will take you to another Jesus or will give license to the contradicting of the Word. This would be a primary example of a false prophet. Prophets are growing and can make mistakes just like their other counter-parts in the five fold ministry (Ephesians 4:11-16). A heavier responsibility is on the ministry but you have to start somewhere in proving your election and call. If you see no change for growth or if you see blatant false doctrine, be kind, but back away from those individuals and pray that they see the real Jesus.
Question: Why does it seem that so many people are giving similar but not exactly the same message? Is God not consistent?
Again, here, we are dealing with the human versus the divine. God has chosen to use frail vessels to display His glory. I think the greatest glory in that is that He can use us in spite of our flaws! I like what I heard Prophet Kim Clement say one time. He said that God in Heaven speaks a word in the Spirit (for God is a Spirit) and His prophetic people pick up the Spirit and translate it into their own language and understanding. The Bible says that we prophesy according to our faith. A person who is deep into the Word and their prayer life can often prophesy more powerfully and poignantly than a baby Christian who is just starting out. But let's not forget that God has spoken through a donkey before, and He wants us to grow up and mature in our faith. The gifts are given as the Spirit wills. (I Corinthians 12:7-11)
