Prophecy is about the deep things or the hidden things of God. As Christians we always find it necessary to defend God. God does not need man to be relevant. He is sovereign and there is nothing we can do to make Him relevant. As a man or woman of God, you are a chosen vessel for what God want to achieve.
There is a difference between what God said and what God is saying now. Make an effort to be in His will at all times. When you want to please people, you’ll find yourself trying to justify what He said and what he is saying now. Jonah 3:4-5 On the day Jonah entered the city, he shouted to the crowds: “Forty days from now Nineveh will be destroyed!” The people of Nineveh believed God’s message, and from the greatest to the least, they declared a fast and put on burlap to show their sorrow. After Jonah told people what God said and God later changed His plans, Jonah was angry. He forgot that it’s not about him but God and His people.
God told Abraham to go and sacrifice his only son and just before he did God provided another option. Genesis 22:9-11 Then they came to the place of which God had told him. And Abraham built an altar there and placed the wood in order; and he bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, upon the wood. And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the Angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” So he said, “Here I am.”
This week there was an outcry about TB Joshua’s prophecy about the US election. Is it a matter of what God said or something still coming? God can creat a situation beyond our imagination. If it does not happen, does it nullify his calling as a Prophet? Do not be canal when dealing with spiritual matters.
