Someone asked me these questions:
1. Is there still observable evidence that a prophet is a Father ordained prophet as they or others may promote them to be, if you observe that prophet offer words that give false wittiness against a neighbor or slander a neighbor just because they do not agree with said neighbor AND then the proclaimed prophet does not repent of said false wittiness to restore themselves and their neighbor. Are they still a prophet, if they do not repent and restore and reverence ALL of God's word again ?
1st qualification (evidence)
Do the words of the proclaimed prophet come to pass.
IE: Do the proclaimed prophet's words come to pass. before the fact/event happens that was spoken of by the prophet.
Not brought to peoples eyes or ears as evidence after the fact/event spoken of by the proclaimed prophet comes to pass but before it comes to pass.
2nd qualification (evidence)
Is the proclaimed prophet obedient to all of God's word.
Or do they pick and choose depending on the temporal situation, pick and chose which of God's words to remain obediently to.
IE: One day the proclaimed prophet is obedient and speaks truth, then the next day (like all of us) they are not obedient and speak falsehoods or slander, but the prophet does not repent afterward, for forgiveness, and also to restore said neighbors. \
What are the signs of a true prophet of God. Here on planet earth today? That is the question we are trying to answer in this thread.
Deu 18:21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
Deut 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
That is pretty straight forward.
Deu 13:1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
A good example of the this is the virgin of Fatima, which brought fire from heaven in accordance to Rev 13:13, and in accordance to Deu 13 shown here, declared that God wanted people to worship her on that mountain. By the way, she showed up six times but only on days # 13 of the month. What a hint.
How about behavior of the prophet? God chose Moses, a murderer that never went to the police to confess his crime.
David was a adulterous man, a murderer too after he was filled with the HS. But he repented immediately.
John the Baptist was asked: Are you Elijah? and he said no, in spite that he was and Jesus had to correct that statement.
I care more, I am impressed more with the following in a prophet of God:
Miracles that violate the laws of physics (like creating a new arm where there was none... immediatelly).
Little ego, no self righteouness
Do not get offended at people when they insult them.
Willing to die for Christ and his message (Foxes Book of Martyrs)
Elijah was a man with like passions like us.
Jas 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
HUMBLE !!!! MEEK !!!! Num 12:3 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
What think Ye?
