 Re:

Quote:

The best way to "learn" to be a prophet, is to learn to be a disciple. Learn all that Christ said of becoming and being Hid disciple. Be a disciple first and foremost, and if God would have you be a prophet, then you will not be able to help but be one.



Amen and amen and amen! A disciple is somebody committed to following Jesus into the tomb. And the heart of all ministry, including prophetic, is to as somebody said earlier, die a thousand deaths. It's a horrible thing to see somebody performing a ministry who has not died to self. For such they are truly doing then, simply "performing."

Yesterday at church I gave a prophetic word that was less than pleasant to give. The word was something like, "I wasn't playing games 2000 years ago when I died on the cross, yet some of you here are playing games today. Why will you play a game? There is no profit in it..." One has to truly be dead in order to give such a word. For you will get very few amen's and very few pats on the back for such a word. Very few men will be willing to "confirm" your call when you give such a word. But such a word can only be given if you are dead to self and focused on following Christ, and speaking what Christ would say if He were here to say it Himself. For such is the true heart of the prophetic ministry.

For further thoughts, see a recently thread in the Lounge entitled, [url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?forum=35&topic_id=14746]The Spirit of Prophecy[/url]

My point is, the prophetic call is a call to death. Just get busy dying, Brother.

Amen! And I would encourage you to begin pressing into Jesus about obtaining a pure heart. There's a lot of great resources here: [url=www.enterhisrest.org]Enter His Rest[/url].

The question I oftentimes ask myself, am I small enough to be used by God? He is faithful to do the shrinking and it's not pretty or pain-free but Jesus is faithful to do it.
