 Re: touch not who????

Quote:
In today's pastoral setting they are generally given almost absolute authority with a mandate not to touch them lest you "touch the Lord's anointed." Is this practice biblical?


It just occurred to me that this is a gross misuse of scripture – pulling a pet phrase out of its context. David said these words regarding King Saul: “I will not lift my hand against my master, because he is the Lord’s anointed.” 1 Sam. 24:10 In other words, “I will not take matters into my own hand regarding the just punishment for this wicked man.”

“Do not repay anyone evil for evil.. Do not take revenge..” Rom. 12:7,9

Anyone trying to claim amnesty based on the words “touch not the Lord’s anointed” is not exactly complimenting himself.

We have discussed this at some length at different times but perhaps it doesn't hurt to say one or two things again.



This is a tremendous help Ron. The brains are leaky vessels as well. Good to hear this and to consider again.

For Ironman this is certainly true. We are on a countdown to Dec 2007 as I remember; then we shall see whether or not he is a prophet.

 Re:

I think the reference Robert was using was: 1Ch 16:22 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm. or Psa 105:15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

I like what has been said because Pastor Bailey is right on when it comes to people operating in giftings as oppossed to being a gift from God to the Body of Christ, i.e. the Five fold ministry listed in Eph. I was in an Assembly's of God church where a man came in who claimed to be a prophet, he really did much harm and used the pulpit to speak cursings rather than warnings and blessings or instruction. That mess took some time to clear up
:-( any way, local accountability is always best. And sound doctrine with in the prophetic utterence is always to be expected. I always watch for the balance of grace and repentance in the midst of judgement and turmoil. If the Word spoken lacks grace and mercy I always (personally speaking) toss it aside and wait patiently on the Lord to hear for myself. We are all His children and are all able to hear His voice :-)

Thanks for setting me straight, Dohzman.

I have been leaning this way too. If I sense that the Spirit of Jesus is absent or quenched, I feel no responsibility to receive the word.

 Re:

Hi everyone.

Mahoney,

Quote:
I believe a true prophet is consumed with Jesus Christ. He/ she are not consumed with coming calamities, and as was stated, anyone can read the signs of the times and predict coming calamities.

But only those who know Jesus can reveal Jesus. In a sense, anyone who knows Christ...anyone who has experienced His Life, has the ability to be a prophet.



This second part especially reminds me of Revelation 19:10. Compare with Revelation 22:9 also.

Chris
