Prophecy: ‘God Is Restoring the Dignity of Prophets in Our Time’

by | Aug 16, 2019 | Blogs, God Encounters Today

I was sitting on a plane, and I had about 20 text messages come through, each one a more important testimony or story than the last about how different friends had encountered actual prophets in our day who gave them prophetic words.

These words all had stories attached, and each prophet had brought different people into a place of great authority and connection in their sphere of society. Each one was a testimony of how the prophet had affected their life and how the outcome was forever different because of the word they had received.

I was so excited because it wasn’t just spiritual encouragement. I heard them talking about different men and women whom God is raising up or has raised up as prophets and how prophets are alive and well in our time.

I then heard clearly in my spirit that God is restoring the dignity of prophets in our time.

Who Are Prophets, Anyway?

Prophets in the Old Testament were the most sought-after people when anyone faced transition, crises or national purposes in Israel and beyond.

The prophets were the hosts of God’s thoughts, and when people met with them, this omnipresent God made an appearance through His prophets in a way that proved that He cared very deeply about those who sought after Him.

In the New Testament, we see the prophets carry another equally important role—to help establish God’s kingdom in all the world.

They were the ones who helped the rest of Christians navigate their revelation and prophetic journey.

The world is so hungry for the divine counsel of the Holy Spirit. When you meet with Him, what normally takes a year of counseling, an expensive business coach, a life coach or an educational process can happen in a moment.

Counterfeit Prophets

Think about the multi-billion-dollar industry of psychics, new age, mediums and the occult.

Why are they so present in society?

Because people are looking for spiritual guidance.

People are hungry for spiritual truth that they can apply to their pain, their careers, their identities.

This is such a counterfeit to the ministry of prophets, who bring a connection to God’s original plans and intentions in real time through the Spirit of God. And He does it free through His prophets!

James W.
