1 Thessalonians 5:19-21 King James Version (KJV)
Quench not the Spirit.
Despise not prophesyings.
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
The Word of God is clear, writes David P Griffiths to “despise not prophesyings but in a man centred culture, particularly in the “Higher Critical Church” culture the very thought that God would look to speak through man is anathema.
What is despised is that man has to die, the message the Word of God giving about “union” being very clear.
1 Corinthians 6:17 King James Version (KJV)
But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
What is also despised is the fact that one's rights as a human being has been taken away so that the born again believer can be the manifestation of Christ Jesus on this earth with the government of nations on our shoulders, for shoulders are part of the body.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 King James Version (KJV)
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
What is also despised is the fact that an individual prophesying is not to be world affected, it being completely Biblical that the one prophesying be possibly in a trance.
Numbers 24:3-5 King James Version (KJV)
And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beorhath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:
He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:
How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel!
The one who prophesies is also aware of the danger of human reason affecting the flow of the Spirit
Acts 10:9-17 King James Version (KJV)
On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:
And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,
And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending upon him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:
Wherein were all manner of four footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.
But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.
Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made enquiry for Simon's house, and stood before the gate,
Those who prophesy and the Apostle Paul wrote most of the New Testament through writing down what the Spirit was speaking through him are aware of the religious spirit coming against them with the traditions of men and emotional reactions of the religious world. The one who is prophesying is AS HIM and so if they crucified Jesus – they will look to crucify the Prophet.
Acts 22:17-18 King James Version (KJV)
And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance;
And saw him saying unto me, Make haste, and get thee quickly out of Jerusalem: for they will not receive thy testimony concerning me.
Note John declares that he was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day and then declares “I am,” for as He is so are we in this world! The one prophesying is fully aware therefore that the prophecy is always in the “first person” – never “the Lord doth say” for that denies the union of Christ Jesus to the believer as one spirit.
Revelation 1:1-11 King James Version (KJV)
The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
Blessed is he that read eth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from theseven Spirits which are before his throne;
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
1 John 4:17 King James Version (KJV)
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
The one prophesying is also aware of his/her marital status, and what he/she (no human gender distinction in the spirit) is a partaker of:
Jeremiah 3:14 King James Version (KJV)
Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city,and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:
Ephesians 5:30-32 King James Version(KJV)
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
2 Peter 1:3-5 King James Version (KJV)
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
Those who prophesy have to endure the buffetings of Satan to prevent pride getting a hold, they have to move by the faith of the Son of God and have to hold confidence until the end. In this context and this context only the prophets are subject to the prophets, those who live the same way not Pharisaic judges who have no clue of these things.
2 Corinthians 12:6-8 King James Version (KJV)
For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me.
And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
Galatians 2:20 King James Version (KJV)
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Hebrews 3: 13-15 King James Version (KJV)
But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lestany of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning ofour confidence stedfast unto the end;
While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden notyour hearts, as in the provocation.
1 Corinthians 14:31-33 King James Version (KJV)
For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all maybe comforted.
And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
For many many years now commonly in the early hours of the morning I have woken early with words from God. My dear wife Lindsay has woken too to write down what the Lord Jesus is saying.
Following on this website are those words. There are many more to come on later but these are the Words of the Lord beginning with the 95 Theses of 2007, the Lord telling me to “nail these theses on denominational doors”, an act spiritually achieved with the theses arriving physically by Special Delivery, a service not available in Luther’s day only to be widely ignored as in the days of Jeremiah.
As in the days of Jeremiah, the prophets rise early to be ignored by the religious and national populace to the detriment of society as a whole – but through these series of websites (See LINKS) God is speaking and convicting today to bring the “Church” and Nations back to him.
As a result of ignoring the Prophets Great Britain, USA and the Western World have placed themselves under Babylonian controls, the affects of slavery in the manifestation of over-regulation and over surveillance – all being the signs of Babylonian oppression.
It has never been wise to ignore the Prophets who still give a way out – THE ONE WAY OUT – the only one who is THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE – the only Saviour –his name is JESUS!
Jeremiah 7: 24-26 King James Version (KJV)
But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.
Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them:
Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers.
Jeremiah 25: 3-5 King James Version (KJV)
From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah, even unto this day, that is the three and twentieth year, the word of the Lord hath come unto me, and I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye have not hearkened.
And the Lord hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear.
They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the Lord hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever:
Jeremiah 26:4-6 King James Version (KJV)
And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord; If ye will not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you,
To hearken to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I sent unto you, both rising up early, and sending them, but ye have not hearkened;
Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.
Jeremiah 29:18-20 King James Version (KJV)
And I will persecute them with the sword, with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be removed to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and an hissing, and a reproach, among all the nations whither I have driven them:
Because they have not hearkened to my words, saith the Lord, which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them; but ye would not hear, saith the Lord.
Hear ye therefore the word of the Lord, all ye of the captivity, whom I have sent from Jerusalem to Babylon:
Jeremiah 35:14-16 King James Version (KJV)
The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none, but obey their father's commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye hearkened not unto me.
I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them, and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.
Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this people hath not hearkened unto me:
Jeremiah 44:3-5 King James Version (KJV)
Because of their wickedness which they have committed to provoke me to anger, in that they went to burn incense, and to serve other gods, whom they knew not, neither they, ye, nor your fathers.
Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate.
But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense unto other gods.
John 14:6 King James Version (KJV)
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Finally - it is entirely constitutional to be led of the Spirit in the Great British Constitution. Before every session of Parliament this is what happens:
The Speaker's Chaplain usually reads the prayers. The form of the main prayer is as follows:
"Lord, the God of righteousness and truth, grant to our Queen and her government, to Members of Parliament and all in positions of responsibility, the guidance of your Spirit. May they never lead the nation wrongly through love of power, desire to please, or unworthy ideals but laying aside all private interests and prejudices keep in mind their responsibility to seek to improve the condition of all mankind; so may your kingdom come and your name be hallowed.
