TO PROPHETS CALLED BY THE LORD OF HOSTS:

WHAT DO YOU THINK ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES OF THE DAY FOR YOU AS PROPHETS?

WHAT QUESTIONS WOULD YOU LIKE TO ASK OF OTHERS?

WHAT WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR YOU?

Please let us hear from you.

Mark 6:4

Not claiming to be one, but acknowledging to some degree the call of prophet, (I have struggled with this most of my life I think) I would say that immediately the thing that comes to me as the most important issue today is to call or challenge the church to return to a place of holiness and separation unto the LORD. The body is sickly and does not know it, because it does not see many of the common place sins as such. Pastors and leadership have failed to bring the strong word of correction to the body that they are meant to do, and they will answer for it.

The fear of the LORD has been removed from God's own people, largely by leadership. The fear of the LORD is about to return to the Body of Christ. We are going to begin to see judgments to fall on the body, exposing, and bringing justice and fear to all as they watch and see. God will have a holy people.

It is also time for the Body to prepare. This season of preparation will not be for much longer. War is coming. In the natural, and in the spirit. This war will not be fought with conventional weapons and won. It will not be a conventional war. We are to clean our houses, and get things in spiritual order. To prepare for what is coming. The Body is going through a season that will test what they believe and what they stand on. If foundations in the Word have not been built, houses will crumble. If the foundation has not been maintained, it will crumble. Without a good foundation, believers will be lost to deception and turn their backs on the Most High God. Houses, and churches must bring learn to bring correction in love. BUT they must bring the correction to keep His house that has been dedicated to Him as holy. Churches are in the balance. Denominations are in the balance. The Body will go through the fire to burn away all that is not of Him , those that are not of Him, and to bring the Body into purity.

Discernment will come to the people from time spent in the Word and being taught by Holy Ghost. The Body of Christ is not ready.

God is also in a season of bringing about His Word. Many things He has spoken of in His Word, and over individuals, He is now putting into place. We are to watch for them as they come to pass. Much of the shakings and chaos many of us are going through and that we see in health, economy, the nations and in the weather, are to bring about and position even our families, so that His Word is fulfilled. In all of the shakings, this Word should bring comfort as we should be able to look beyond present circumstances to see Kingdom purposes being fulfilled.

I have never desired to be a prophet. It is not my nature to stand up, speak out, nor confront. I have never understood why anyone would choose the office of prophet either. To prophesy, yes. Prophet, no. The prophets were stoned, imprisoned, lost their heads and executed in terrible ways. They were loved when they had a Word from God that pleased the people, and hated when it did not. They were usually mocked and ridiculed. They were sent to tell kings what they were doing displeased the LORD. They were much more likely to bring words of correction, than words of exhortation. They were asked to do bizarre things and to live out symbolically what the LORD was about to do. Who would choose that? The LORD has shown me He has kept me hidden. He has His reasons, and some of which I think I understand.

Thank you for this writing. It is a reminder that breaks my heart, even as I sat down to begin to write something along these same lines and with this same purpose.

Dr. Carol Cohen

Thank you for your thoughts, Mark 6:4. I agree so much. Time now to do what God gives us to do. Period.

There will be a point I believe when one is to be known as one is, and one's voice heard as representing a real person who knows their God. So far no real vehicle for that ... especially not on the scale He intends.

Please keep these efforts in prayer. I really want to track very carefully with what He wants done. I sense He wants a voice/ a vehicle for the prophets on a large scale.

I think the insulation goes with a holiness/ consecration the LORD of HOSTS wants for His representatives. His thoughts, His ways, etc.
Warm regards, Dr.Carol Cohen

Mark 6:4

God is about to raise up a new army to step into the next battle season, as this [current] group passes off the scene. They have done their job. It will soon be time for us to do ours.

J.G.

Hi Carol, I just wanted to share a dream I had a while back.

In the dream I saw the old church that was as big as a mountain made up of old bricks. Around the base of the mountainous old church was a fence. The Lord was removing all the bricks that were fenced in about 3/4's of the supporting bricks had been removed and I felt the old church was about to collapse. Then I saw a superhighway that led not too far to a building whose foundation was square and whose four sides were rising up into the heavens. The exterior was one beautiful solid mirror (very pure, very clean) on all 4 sides and reached up into the heavens beyond the clouds. Inside the building was very high tech and I felt that the Lord was now creating a Church different from any other the world has ever seen that would fully reflect His glory in all directions...

As I understood I began to find many sites which truly reflect the glory of God. I feel that those who truly seek God --a glorious reflection of God-- will now be able to find Him wherever they are 24/7. Multitudes of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers are now surfing through the world on a high tech wave preparing the Bride of Christ for the Master's return. The Father is the Father of Nations and He loves all those who will line up with His Word, His Ways, His very plans.

Dr. Carol Cohen

Dear J.G.
Wonderful dream in the LORD. I witness to its accuracy.
Warm regards,
Dr. Carol

WHAT DO YOU THINK ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES OF THE DAY FOR US AS PROPHETS?
Matt:25:35 Total focus on those that are in bondage specifically those physically incarcerated. God loves these people-those who are hunger, in need of clothing/shelter and those that are physically bound. God is not pleased that prophets have forsaken these people. Before these people can be set forth the Lord is requiring that the Prophets clean up their churches and home life. That the house of God be made righteous and that the called be admonished to present order in these areas. For the lost do not believe because the evidence of Christians has no separation from the works in the world. TRUTH has to go forth and stop this please like me concept of preaching.

WHAT QUESTIONS WOULD YOU LIKE TO ASK OF OTHERS?
What position should be taken with Pastors that are connected to man more than God-How do you address them?
How can you respect a Pastor that has surround himself with friends of their personal past to move the Church rather than listening to the word of God.

WHAT WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR YOU?
What would be helpful for me would be to take a mission trip, because the love that I feel needs to be poured out on the Nations of many people. I have held this in my heart for the last 5 years....
Amen
Love Sis Monica

Dr. Carol Cohen

Dear Monica, The good LORD has had the prisoners on my heart too... in my prayers almost everyday. Very much on His heart and IN HIS WORD...the literal prisoners and those there for the faith.. so glad to know you are sharing in that.

Thank you very much for your comments. Also the arts so timely IN HIM.

Gina R.

...I am interested in what you have starting here. I have always heard that I have prophetic tendencies, and that there is the Office of Prophet and those with the gift. I am not able to say that I am in the office of the prophet. I had a friend tell me..."Don't you know that those are your personality makeup and that is the way you look at things, because you are prophetic?." Well, no I didn't know that..... I grew up Baptist, are you kidding me? I didn't know anything...

As far as being set apart, and going through all kinds of "stuff" you have hit the nail on the head. I have been a Christian, since I was young, and have never had it easy, in fact it has been a hard walk of learning to trust God and having stuff happen continually, enough to make you want to give up. And yes, God has me on the sidelines, in a cave, stuck away. I think to "kill" any part of me that I have left. I pray that I make it at times.

Getting to your questions... One thing I would like to know from the prophets is....What is God telling you my friend about these times? ...I would like to know how to get together physically with other prophets to learn more about how to walk in this gift. Am I sticking myself in the cave or is God? After you are not listened to for so long, you just want to put it all aside. Also, I love the fact that there is a national Prophetic roundtable. Why not local? Not a show off time, but a time to encourage one another and to hone our gifts so to speak.

Just thought that I would respond to the email. Thank you for hearing me out!
Blessings,
Gina R.

What do I think is the most important issues of the day as a prophet? Drawing God's people to get closer to him, wanting Gods people to hear his voice. Helping people to want to love God with all their hearts and mind, to love others the way Jesus loved us, to walk the way Jesus walked.

Questions: Are you born again, born of the Spirit of God Do you read the word each day? Do you follow Jesus in his word? Do you forgive? with God's help you can do this. Are you making God alive in your heart? Are you seeking after God?

Helpful to me:

Listening to the Holy Spirit, Following what the Holy Spirit is telling me that goes along with God's word.

Dr. Carol Cohen

Thanks for you heartfelt thoughts, Giovanna.

I.C.

It scares me to think I am called to be a prophet but many years back -- 8 or 10, the LORD told me so -- and sometimes people discern it and it leaves me hanging there -- feeling suspended in the air with no credibility, not God's time yet, just waiting, feeling and acting different and walking extremely obediently to Him, held to a higher level and being sometimes shown things, but really , not often! More than anything
I want to know if this is true -- I believe the prophets should judge the prophets and I pray that
others with this calling will tell me if I am one of them or not!

Issues for today: Holiness and discernment of evil. Being set apart and learning how to wait constructively.

WHAT QUESTIONS WOULD YOU LIKE TO ASK OF OTHERS?
WHAT WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR YOU? To know what I am; to be validated to have answer for those who wonder who I am.

An annual conference of like minded or like called individuals would be refreshing.

One on one prayer time with someone who understands.

What I really crave is PROPHECY .... to hear a word in season for myself from the Body of Chrrist would be very rich for me.
Tthanks.
Count me in, and keep me posted.
I started crying when I read Carol's invitation so... there it is!

Dr. Carol Cohen

Dear I.C. I think your comments will mean a lot to other people called to be prophets. No one but them knows the great internal struggles involved for them to be faithful in this calling, and to come forth when no one close at hand really seems to want that. It reminds me how Jesus said, "A prophet is without honor except in his own country [land] and in his own house [family]." (Mt.13:57) That lack of honor is very real for the prophets and was very real to Him as a Prophet.

As well there is the pain of rejection and the poor fit of a prophet-in-the-making in the organized church, which does not typically recognize prophets or know what to do with them. As well, the very real wounds in the spirit and soul from all this... much less the very real need to mature as a believer and come forth ministering from prophetically from wholeness, not wounded-ness.

And prophets know all to well, that as they come forth, the rejection is apt to increase --at least in some quarters--, not abate. And believe it or not, prophets are not born masochists. Like other people, THEY DO NOT RELISH TAKING BLOWS TO THE CHIN. But they DO want to be faithful to their great GOD and His calling on their lives.

I trust that the ministries for prophets that the good LORD is planning through this NEW work/website will help remedy that.

Holly Eden

my heart's cry is that
my theology be correct, that what I hear the Lord say be PURE, and that I do not look the spiritual insight because of pride and presumption to not be able to see what God is doing perfectly and wonderfully in every body of believers in spite of our humanity and deception the enemy would keep us in.

Dr. Carol Cohen

I say yes and AMEN to your heart's cry below.

Holly Eden

Hi Carol: I am prayerfully going to try and answer your questions below:

WHAT DO YOU THINK ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES OF THE DAY FOR US AS PROPHETS

The issues the Lord brings to the forefront most of the time in my messages to pastors and general words is always #1, our devotion to HIM--that we become less that HE would increase.

#2 our misunderstanding of signs and wonders--as we are taught WE will go out and
do even more wonderful things than JESUS did--what I have gleaned is that obedience
moves the Holy Spirit--we need only be obedient and be and do what we are told
and the Holy Spirit is released and moves as HE will to accomplish HIS signs and
wonders. My experience has been we are like beacons and receptors of the Spirit--we need only worship and show up where we belong--and God does the rest.

However, there is a huge emphasis/delusion in the North American church which I first heard a French Prophetess refer to as 'individuism'--which is what began to let the
Light in. We must always become less that Jesus become more.

#3 the Word--correct teaching and emphasis on the ENTIRE GOSPEL--mature teaching (meat) that we must pick up our crosses daily and follow Him--we need to understand
the blood of Jesus--that we are continually and always sinners saved by grace--he/she who is forgiven much, loves much. Because the Evangelical Church is not
a confessing church--I believe we often taken the body and blood of Jesus unworthily--with little or no thought or preparation.
#4 The mixtures of anointings, sensational ministries and continual seeking for 'experience' of the Holy Spirit lead people to chase the anointing--what God is doing
here and there and everywhere. The LEAVEN, the impure teachings, have infected us everywhere--yet we feel we are 'so on' with God, that we've cornered the market on HIS truth.
There is almost no teaching on the fact "in repentance and in rest we shall be saved."

Are pastors glad to see a 'cranky old woman prophet' like myself bring a word to them? I don't believe so; it's not my experience. The current teaching of the day is "we are free'; we are saved and HE LOVES US and that's were they want to stay.

I believe several hundred years of denominations in North America have taken
strips of teaching to focus on--like we've ripped certain pages out of the Bible and nailed them to our church door--these declare what we believe and who we are--however, in this process the teaching of these separate and distinct denominations
are unbalanced because of what has been left in the Book and not used any more and we are deceiving ourselves.

As the Lord has spoken to me over the last two years, it was horrifying to
discover we are the GENTILES spoken of in Revelation--that we are indeed in the last days of the Times of the Gentiles. I became very angry and depressed, feeling like
the prophet Jeremiah, I was about to be led off to Babylon and there was little to be done about it. I've now accepted the reality that is--now the job is to
pray the Lord's will and protection and where does HE want to take me/us all from
here.

The prophetic word isn't good news--Jesus always is the answer and the Good News in whatever is going to happen on planet earth.
We need to hear and obey and pray and repent (turn) but that word (repent) is no
longer part of church doctrine after a person receives Jesus as Savior.

Our job as prophets are to listen (to the Lord) and speak the words to whomever they are directed and pray (real hard) the receiver does not shoot the messenger and also that they hear the word--that the seed falls into good ground.

The other issue which is SO OFF BASE is how the Evangelical church now prays-and the lack of prayer in the church services to model for new believers how to pray---for
their country, the world, their families, etc. General intercession is not part of a
Sunday service in the Fellowship Churches.

I have been rebuked publicly on two occasions by prayer leaders "we don't pray that way any more" when I said the Lord had directed our group of intercessors to bind the spirits of ____________. Their answer is "We pray the solution as if it is already there."

The Lord tells me "His blessings and new life must have a place to land--that we still need to clear the ground free of spirits and junk and clutter in order the new can come in." But this is not being done in groups--primarily because, I'm guessing, of fear--to the effect that binding and loosing is now not an integral part of general prayer practice.

"We don't need to confront Satan or the enemy--we pray from a position of rest and the Lord will fight for us." Conflicting statements; however both are true beyond our logical mindset.

As Jeremiah was commissioned we are still to root out, to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build and to plant." One of my pastors says so wisely "the Lord will never do anything for us that we can't do for ourselves" and yet there is a complete disconnect
in his church prayer group in how intercession takes place.

These are some of my limited and incomplete, I'm certain, revelations as a prophet to
pastors and evangelists.

I have learned I must first be in relationship with a pastor to first earn his trust in order he
be willing to 'hear the word of the Lord'--this is difficult for a traveling minister coming into a new community. However, it must be suffi cient--Jesus began HIS ministry with twelve
people only; I'm learning I need only be obedient and leave the results to HIM and be pleased with his approval only.


WHAT QUESTIONS WOULD YOU LIKE TO ASK OF OTHERS? I believe it would be comforting to learn my experiences are 'shared' and 'like' experiences with other prophets.
We are definitely square pegs being hammered into round holes--it's those jagged edges
being hammered is the discomfortable thing.


I also have not interpreted the words I receive from the language the Lord gives me--I
give the vision as I receive it and and words as they come without adding my own
interpretation. I ask the recipients to pray and sift the words and seek confirmation themselves--that people would hear God in the word without my mucking about in it.
I am open to hearing other peoples' comments on this subject.


WHAT WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR YOU?My
Prayer cover, and also knowing other prophets that need prayer cover as well. My concern over a 'school' is that as soon as one puts any kind of roof over a living, breathing organism of the LORD's is that it becomes institutionalized. The
LORD has kept us isolated, for good reason--to avoid contamination.

I am also well aware it would be utter pride and total lack of humility to think I have any real answers on my own. It is wonderful to think there is a place to ask
questions and to compare the tone and universality of what the Lord is saying to His independant ones.

I AM very interested to hear what you glean from your questionnaire, Carol.

I hold you in high regard as a servant of the MOST HIGH - EL ADONAI.

In His great and abiding love,
holly eden

pls. how can i enrol with school of the prophets

Angie

Hello, I'm not sure how I found your website but I am glad I did. I too was called as a prophet. I now know why I was always on the outside of any group, even with some in my own family. As I write this, I wrestle with a vision I received regarding a beloved niece. This is the second vision and I feel as if I should say something to her. I already understand that this may affect our relationship(and my relationship with others in the family) but somehow I feel as thought this is God's will. If anything, this is showing me how many people are truly lost in this world because they cannot accept God's message, God's messenger or some combination thereof. I've been looking for someone where I can be myself with, as I'm sure you know it is very hard to find. Most would describe me as 'different'. Now I know why.
