ccchhhrrriiisss,I agree with everything your saying. I am not sure but I think you might be misunderstanding my post. People can operate in gifts because they are without repentance. No one should want to hear accurate words from someone who is not living a Godly life. The problem is that many indiscriminately recieve words because they affirm what they would like to hear. A bad practice indeed.The boring and humdrum statement was an attempt at a little sarcasm to allude to what many contemporary christians would have felt about that experience. In truth and reality it was anything but boring and humdrum because it was how God was wanting to express Himself at that time. My point was that many are developing a unhealthy bias to sensational experiences with God and thereby predisposing themselves to last days deceptions which will be marked by real supernatural phenomena.Again, I am in total agreement with your post. I think you have misread mine. Yet thats alright. Those things happen from time to time. (^_^)
Here is a link to the Ihop website that explains their prophecy ministry. If you disagree that's fine no skin off of my nose, I wouldn't ride them off though I have many friends that are apart of Ihop and I know from speaking with them they are on fire for the Lord Jesus Christ and want His return and will to be done.http://www.ihop.org/Publisher/Article.aspx?ID=1000059830I hope this helpsGod Bless,Matthew
If it is for encouragement, why not say that? Why call it prophecy when it isn't?
