Prophetic Pitfalls

Rob Norman: Prophetic Pitfalls

Rob looks at some of the pitfalls of the prophetic ministry and offers some helpful insight.

Many well known, contemporary ‘prophets’ have made predictions that sound like Old Testament Prophecy.  This kind of prophetic model is either specifically premised with “thus says The Lord” or it is spoken with such authority and certainty that it has the same implied meaning as “Thus says the Lord” and because it comes from leaders who are respected and, in some cases, revered it carries disproportionate weight or authority.

Unfortunately, when ‘prophets’ speak with such certainty and authority, the damage done when they inevitably get it wrong is almost unmitigated.

Rob & Deb Norman: Discovering The Prophetic | The Time Has Come!

We are living in the fulfillment of Old Testament hope and expectation!  When Jesus said “The time has come” this was a declaration of the fulfillment of the triumph of The Kingdom of God’s over all the kingdoms of this world. We are now living in the time of the fulfillment and manifestation of the kingdom of God.

Rob & Deb Norman: Discovering The Prophetic | Prophetic Revelation

Throughout Scripture God has spoken to individuals, both believers and unbelievers using transcendent means.  In Acts 2 the game changed when The Holy Spirit was poured out and those ‘in Christ’ received special abilities to hear from God and convey His heart, mind and will in words to others.
