The Holy Spirit has put it on my heart to write an article concerning those who attack every new prophecy and person who publishes their dreams and visions. This is not to say that we should accept without question every new prophecy, dream or vision that is posted online. That would be absurd at best and infantile in your walk with Yahuah our Father at worst. There are standards that we are to hold these prophecies to. The first and foremost being is it scripturally sound or does it go against scripture or attempt to re-write or correct it? Clearly any of these could and should be labeled as false prophecies.
But by the same token everyone should be given space to walk with the Holy Spirit without condemnation. There are people I have seen on YouTube, PropheticSeer, for one who are vicious in their attacks against what they percieve to be “false prophets”. These people often times center their entire YouTube channel or Websites JUST on this very topic. These people clearly missed the scriptures that say: ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. Acts: 2:17 and Joel 2:28. If the dream, vision or prophecy does not come to pass in the next week they are ready to burn them at the stake. Luckily they were obviously more familiar with the way that the Father works back in Ezekiel’s, Joel, Isaiahs or any of the prophets days. Some of their prophecies did not come to pass for literally hundreds of years. Some of them did not understand what they were seeing and wondered if a certain prophecy was being fulfilled by what they were seeing. Anyone who has had dreams or visions will tell you that it is difficult at times to know exactly what they are looking at. What you may describe as black soot you may recognize at a later date when you now actually see the event in real life is black mud. Now you know it because you recognize the rest of the scene. But these people would have you stoned as a false prophet because you said soot to begin with…while everything else goes along with what you had said.
Joel did not have the correct words to explain all that he saw, neither did John in Revelation, in fact most of them say things like it APPEARED LIKE or was LIKE BLOOD because they could not understand what they were seeing. But Yahuah puts it on your heart to share it as best as you can and so you do. That in itself is very hard to do and very frightening, if you have any sense. Who would purposely want to put words in Yahuah’s mouth or tell of something falsley and then label it as from the Holy Spirit? Only a fool. I believe that the majority of these people at least BELIEVE that they have had a vision or dream from Yahusha/Jesus. I also believe that we as their brothers and sisters in the family of Yahuah have a responsibility to treat them with kindness, consideration and fairness and at least give them the benefit of the doubt. To do anything less is to put a wedge in the body of Yahuah. Do you want to be party to being accused or judged for causing a split in the family of Yahuah? Yahusha said: He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad. Matthew 12:30 and He also said: “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. Matthew 23:13 and finally this: 51 “You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you. 52 Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who foretold the coming of the Just One, of whom you now have become the betrayers and murderers, 53 who have received the law by the direction of angels and have not kept it.”
We are to be kind to one another and treat each other as we ourselves would like to be treated because in doing so we are also treating Yahusha/Jesus that way. Also the reverse is true. If you treat them by publically flogging them with your words, ridiculing them and making a spectacle of them…you are guilty of doing that to Yahusha. In the end, the person who is putting out the dreams,visions and prophecies is accountable to the Father as well. If he has done well he will be rewarded and if he has not he will be rewarded for that as well. We do not need to accuse the brethren, there is already one who has that job title and I am guessing you would not want to be his apprentice.
