Deuteronomy 18:19 I will personally deal with anyone who will not listen to the messages the prophet proclaims on my behalf.

Touch not my anointed.

Be careful when dealing with servants of God. God said touch not my anointed. That means even what belongs to them.
Genesis 20:3 But that night God came to Abimelech in a dream and told him, “You are a dead man, for that woman you have taken is already married!”

God came in a dream to warn Abimelech not to sleep with Abraham’s wife. You might not have the grace to get a warning but run into curses because of ignorance trying to please man by attacking man and woman of God.

1 Chronicles 16:21-22 He permitted no man to do them wrong; Yes, He rebuked kings for their sakes, Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.”

Prophets are human.

To be a prophet does not mean you don’t make mistake. As human beings God uses them for His people not for themselves. They speak God’s mind. Balaam was a prophet but could not see the Angel standing before him. Numbers 22:23 Now the donkey saw the Angel of the LORD standing in the way with His drawn sword in His hand, and the donkey turned aside out of the way and went into the field. So Balaam struck the donkey to turn her back onto the road.

When somebody can tell you something only you know, then you know that they are being used by God. When you read negative things in the media, to you s/he remains a prophet. We all fall short off his glory. Romans 3:23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.

Sometimes people comment as if they have placed prophets at par with God.

If Prophets knew everything, they won’t see a reason to have a relationship with God.

Elisha could discern that the Shunammite woman was troubled but God did not reveal what was troubling her.2 Kings 4:27 But when she came to the man of God at the mountain, she fell to the ground before him and caught hold of his feet. Gehazi began to push her away, but the man of God said, “Leave her alone. She is deeply troubled, but the LORD has not told me what it is.”

If everything in our life was perfect, there won’t be a need to worship God. Satan fell from grace because he thought of himself equal to God.

Believe His Prophets

2 Kings 7:1-2 Then Elisha said, “Hear the word of the LORD. Thus says the LORD: ‘Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria.'” So an officer on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God and said, “Look, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, could this thing be?” And he said, “In fact, you shall see it with your eyes, but you shall not eat of it.”
I have faith in Prophet TB Joshua, I’m still hopeful. There are things that seems impossible in our minds. God works in His own way.

Do no harm to my prophets

If you don’t understand the way a man or woman of God operates, it’s safer to move away from him than comment on it. 1 Chronicles 16:22 Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.”

King Ahab did not like the prophecies of Micaiah and spoke bad about him. God allowed led him to go to war so he can be killed there. 2 Chronicles 18:19-21 And the LORD said, ‘Who will persuade Ahab king of Israel to go up, that he may fall at Ramoth Gilead?’ So one spoke in this manner, and another spoke in that manner. Then a spirit came forward and stood before the LORD, and said, ‘I will persuade him.’ The LORD said to him, ‘In what way?’ So he said, ‘I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ And the LORD said, ‘You shall persuade him and also prevail; go out and do so.’

A lot of people are cursed because of what they said and the way they treat the anointed man and woman of God.

Stay clear from those who attack man and woman of God.

God is clear on how He feel about those who continue to attack His servants.1 Chronicles 16:22 Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.”

Some youth mocked Prophet Elisha, calling him bald head and as a result two bears came out and mauled them.

2 Kings 2:24 So he turned around and looked at them, and pronounced a curse on them in the name of the LORD. And two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.

Even today there are people who continue to attack God servant. If you don’t understand how they run their ministry rather move away from the situation or as a Christian pray for God’s intervention.
