Is this a School of the Prophets? No, it is too rudimentary for that. It is the BEGINNING of a school of the prophets. But this "school" is different. Most Prophets of the True and Living God have already been in school with Him ALL THEIR LIVES. If you are a Prophet of God, you are probably chuckling, because you know what I am talking about :)
Real Prophets of God are called from the womb. They are a gift from God to the church and to the people of the world. They serve in different capacities and in different callings accordingly as God has created them. They are not GIFTED TO BE PROPHETS. THEY ARE PROPHETS.
FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE PROPHETS
Real Prophets WERE PURPOSED, FASHIONED AND FORMED BY GOD TO BE PROPHETS. From before the foundation of the world that was His plan and purpose for their lives. They did not ask to be a Prophet, and they probably don't even know if they really WANT to be a Prophet. But they are one anyway...because that was God's decision.
They may be more than a prophet. They may have other functions and callings that He has placed within their make up and physical frame. In this website we will speak to the portion which is the Prophet in them.
THIS "SCHOOL" IS NOT FOR PEOPLE WHO PROPHESY
SOME PEOPLE ARE MISTAKENLY THOUGHT TO BE "PROPHETS" BECAUSE THEY PROPHESY.
All people of God are supposed to prophesy. In 1 Cor.14 the Apostle Paul told all believers in Jesus Christ to seek the gift of prophecy. Prophecy is a gift of the Holy Spirit whereby the Spirit of God moves upon and through a person so that they have words inspired by God to speak that will encourage other people, warn them if that is appropriate, or build them up in the LORD so that they will mature or come forth in what God has in mind for them.
Prophets are different. They CAN function in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and they are likely to be very familiar with the wonder of having the Holy Spirit move upon them to utter prophetic words of encouragement, admonition, and edification to others. Moreover, Paul describes that through the gift of prophecy, words can be spoken in an assembly whereby a non-believer will hear things spoken that they KNOW could only be known by God. And that will encourage them to turn to the true and living God and heed His messengers at the assembly.
Yes, the wonderful gift of prophecy is available to all believers in Jesus Christ/ Yeshua, and all believers are encouraged to seek after it.
BUT A PROPHET IS SOMETHING ELSE. IT IS A PERSON WHOSE MAKE-UP GOD FASHIONED TO BE A PROPHET.
ALL OF A PROPHET'S LIFE IS A SCHOOL OF TRAINING
SO GOD HAS MADE ALL OF THEIR LIVES A SCHOOL OF TRAINING... A SCHOOL OF THE PROPHET -- so they might learn to serve and represent Him properly in the function and capacity to which they are called... with that training always going on... because He has ever new assignments before them.
I want to make very clear, then, that even with all the wonderful "apostolic networks," "prophetic organizations," and international assemblies that have trained people up in the prophetic, released mantles, confirmed, anointed, certified, and ordained, and with all their valuable teaching and help, this online School for Prophets is largely not for those folks.
THIS IS FOR THE PROPHETS ALL OVER THE WORLD WHOM THE LORD OF HOSTS HAS PUT ASIDE FOR MANY YEARS UNTIL THE DAY HE WOULD RELEASE THEM INTO THE FULLNESS OF THE CALLING HE HAS BEEN PREPARING THEM FOR IN THE END TIMES.
These people have largely been personally trained up by God Himself.
They have something inside them which could never let them fully be part of what was not really designed by God FOR THEM.
They have an un-shakeable inability to go along with anything but what they truly sense is of their LORD.
They have an uncanny honing mechism inside themselves.. sometimes they wish it wasn't there... that doesn't let they go along with the religious flow. With regard to their realm of functioning, if something isn't of God, it makes them genuinely & physically uncomfortable.
And so most of them have been loners -in spite of themselves.
I say "in spite of themselves," because most of them are truly sociable people. They love other folks, they love fellowship, they love belonging, but BECAUSE OF WHO GOD CREATED THEM TO BE, they are like squares pegs trying to fit into round holes.
They also have no particular desire to be up in front speaking to everyone, to be on the top of the totem pole, to be rich and famous, or to exercise power and influence. YET THEY KNOW AT CERTAIN TIMES AND OCCASIONS THEY ARE TO BE PUBLIC FIGURES, TO SPEAK OUT FORCEFULLY, EXERCISE THEIR GOD-GIVEN AUTHORITY, AND BUILD UP OR TEAR DOWN AS HE WILLS.
Their day to do this in large measure has not yet come. To some extent they do not relish its coming. And yet in obedience to God, they push forward to it, demolish obstacles, and pray for its coming.
They don't fit well into the religious structures that have been BECAUSE GOD CREATED THEM TO BE PART OF AND SET IN ORDER THE NEW WORKS THAT THE LORD OF HOSTS IS BRINGING FORTH IN THE END TIMES.
- To prepare His Bride for His Coming
- To bring correction to what is in error
- To expose deception and bring what is hidden into the Light
- To put in place God's order in place of man-made structures.
- To help put the God of Israel in proper perspective and His people Israel and the Land of Israel into right understanding in Jewish and Christian theology.
- To release the fullness of the restoration, healing, and transforming ministries the good LORD has intended for His people since time immemorial.
IT IS NOT THAT THESE PROPHETS KNOW HOW TO DO ALL THIS. RATHER THEY ARE CALLED TO PARTICIPATE IN IT AS GOD RELEASES TO THEM THEIR MARCHING ORDERS.
So He has schooled them in
- waiting on Him
- learning to discern what is of Him and what is not
- on the importance of His written Word
- on the devices of deception
- on the wiles by which the enemy and the carnal mind operate
- on God's great compassion for humanity
- on His hatred for evil
- on the need for love, or what we do is just a lot of noise
- on His zeal and intent to accomplish all He has said He will do.
- on the power, majesty, and utter uniqueness of our God, so that "though He slay me, yet I will serve Him."
The Prophets I am talking about already know it is God and He alone who has kept them alive to this day. And should He wish it, He will keep them here on earth to complete the tasks He has given REGARDLESS OF WHAT LIES AHEAD.
ARE YOU ONE OF THE PROPHETS I AM DESCRIBING?
Then this is a place for you to hang out and connect with other Prophets called as you are to serve the LORD OF HOSTS.
I want to begin by asking few questions for your comment:
WHAT DO YOU THINK ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES OF THE DAY FOR US AS PROPHETS?
WHAT QUESTIONS WOULD YOU LIKE TO ASK OF OTHERS?
WHAT WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR YOU?
WOULD YOU MIND DOING THIS?
Please pray for this venture, for the next steps, and that the company of Prophets that belong here stumble upon this site.
God bless you, and keep in touch. Let's hear your answers to the 3 questions above.
