Prophetic and Deliverance ministries will always experience opposition because what the servants do under the influence of the Holy Spirit cannot be matched with our knowledge.

Acts 5:15 As a result of the apostles’ work, sick people were brought out into the streets on beds and mats so that Peter’s shadow might fall across some of them as he went by. The first people to oppose you are inside the house of God. Acts 5:17 The high priest and his officials, who were Sadducees, were filled with jealousy. Don’t limit God to certain answers because the way and manner God executes His plan in our lives differs. There is nothing He cannot use to save His people. When can we be witness to the Works of the Holy Spirit without miracles and wonders? The Holy Spirit cannot be in a place and be idle.

What are we using to judge the miracle from God and that from evil spirits, shall we nullify the works of God because of the Works of evil spirits? Acts 13:9-10 Saul, also known as Paul, was filled with the Holy Spirit, and he looked the sorcerer in the eye. Then he said, “You son of the devil, full of every sort of deceit and fraud, and enemy of all that is good! Will you never stop perverting the true ways of the Lord?

The governor saw the works and believed the preaching. Preaching alone is sometimes not enough to change people. People know the scriptures but are shot of seeing the power of the Word God in action. Acts 13:12 When the governor saw what had happened, he became a believer, for he was astonished at the teaching about the Lord.

To walk in the spiritual realm, you must forget about people else you will always explain why you do things.

When things are not revealed to others, they won’t understand when they happen. There are people who are called to do signs and wonders but don’t walk in their calling because of fear of man. 2 Kings 4:33-34 He went in alone and shut the door behind him and prayed to the LORD. Then he lay down on the child’s body, placing his mouth on the child’s mouth, his eyes on the child’s eyes, and his hands on the child’s hands. And as he stretched out on him, the child’s body began to grow warm again!

God’s intervention through a prophet.

People criticize because man’s nature is that there must be facts to what you are saying to be believed. Many wonders why people flock to prophetic and deliverance ministries. When God does things through His servants, things that you know are humanly impossible, whatever people say, that testimony is all you need.

1 Kings 17:8-14 Then the LORD said to Elijah, [9] “Go and live in the village of Zarephath, near the city of Sidon. I have instructed a widow there to feed you.” [10] So he went to Zarephath. As he arrived at the gates of the village, he saw a widow gathering sticks, and he asked her, “Would you please bring me a little water in a cup?” [11] As she was going to get it, he called to her, “Bring me a bite of bread, too.” [12] But she said, “I swear by the LORD your God that I don’t have a single piece of bread in the house. And I have only a handful of flour left in the jar and a little cooking oil in the bottom of the jug. I was just gathering a few sticks to cook this last meal, and then my son and I will die.” [13] But Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid! Go ahead and do just what you’ve said, but make a little bread for me first. Then use what’s left to prepare a meal for yourself and your son. [14] For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: There will always be flour and olive oil left in your containers until the time when the LORD sends rain and the crops grow again!”

There are people who are prophets but not hearing from God but other sources.

To be a prophet means you are capable of hearing and seeing what people don’t normally see and hear but it does not mean all is from God. You are like a satellite dish, it’s capable of receiving signal but the signal might not be from the correct source.Jeremiah 2:8 The priests did not ask, ‘Where is the LORD?’ Those who taught my word ignored me, the rulers turned against me, and the prophets spoke in the name of Baal, wasting their time on worthless idols.

Desire spiritual eyes

Numbers 22:31 Then the LORD opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the Angel of the LORD standing in the way with His drawn sword in His hand; and he bowed his head and fell flat on his face.

The difference between you and a prophet is that, the Prophet has a third eye which sees things that exist only in the spirit real but can have an impact upon our lives. 2 Kings 6:17 And Elisha prayed, and said, “LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
It’s not that the Angel and the army was not there, they needed the third eye to reveal what was already there.

Jesus used prophets and prophetic ministry, He will continue to do so because He is the same forever.

Ephesians 4:11-16 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, [12] for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, [13] till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; [14] that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, [15] but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ- [16] from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

The ministry of Jesus has been built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets yet some don’t believe in their works. Ephesians 2:20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone
