Jeremiah 23:9-40: Please take time to read this. What we learn from the words of prophecy in the Old Testament is that the only true words of prophecy are found in the word of God. Any other words of prophecy given today must align with the prophetic voices outlined in the Holy Bible. Otherwise, they are false and the Lord’s Judgment is upon them with wrath and fury.
In today’s world, there is a lot of noise. What do I mean? There are a lot of people who portray falsehood as the truth. Thus, since we are not Jesus Christ, the ONE TRUE PROPHET of the LORD, we are all prone to becoming false prophets if we do not rely on the Lord’s power and might found in His Word.
Today, I do believe there are still people that have what I am going to call prophetic gifts. At age 5, I had a vision of the four horseman of the apocalypse. Also, read Revelation 19:11-16: it is a revelation to John about the 5th Horseman of the Apocalypse: Faithful and True, the Heavenly Warrior, Jesus Christ. At age 16, I had a vision of Revelation 6, most specifically verse 4. What I saw was a world in chaos. The predominant colors were red, black, while, and a pale yellow that came from evil spiritual forces trying to overtake their fallen kingdom.
Now, I do not consider myself a prophet. I do not consider myself anything special. Without Christ Jesus, I am worthless. But with Jesus Christ, I am of great value and a finished work before His Throne of Grace. However, the Lord has gifted me with the ability to pray in the Holy Spirit. What I have come to find is that if I search the dreams and visions I have had in the past, there is a lot that has yet to come to pass. However, with the Lord’s Power and Might, you and I can do great things in the name of Jesus.
Let’s address the scripture I have asked you all to read. Jeremiah truly was a fearless Prophet of the Lord. Many things grieved him because the Holy Spirit rested upon him. Those who deny there is evil in the world deny the very word of God. We must continue to fight for the TRUTH, which the evil & powerful forces of this world do not want you to know.
How does Jeremiah’s condemnation of lying prophets and false witnesses apply to today? What does Jesus tell us in regards to our speech? If we are to speak, act as if we were speaking the very words of God. Otherwise, we offend God. Let no impure thing befall you. We are to test all of the spirits of this world. All who acknowledge Jesus as the Christ will be saved. All who deny Jesus as the Christ are of the spirit of the antichrist, which is Satan and has existed to torment and destroy mankind from the very beginning.
Thus, how are we to live as men and women of God? According to His Word. It will deliver all absolute truth for all time. Lastly, at the end of the age, the sheep and goats will be separated. The sheep will enter into everlasting rest. The goats will enter into everlasting torment. Jesus will feed His sheep by the His words which will never pass away. Be counted among the sheep, the righteous and holy children of God.
