7 Things That God Wants From End Time Prophets
SEVEN THINGS THAT GOD WANTS FROM END TIME PROPHETS
• ATTENTION: resist the urge to be chronically distracted. Especially the distraction of constantly looking for other confirming voices. You either know God's voice or you don't.
• AUDIENCE: more time in God's presence, with a greater emphasis upon listening.
• AWARENESS: being knowledgeable and mindful of where we are on God's prophetic time table be mindful of the unfolding of events and their implications to warn the church.
• ACTIVATION: All prophets on deck, No time for sitting back being on mute. Know what God is saying through you and know the proper audience for the word he gives.
• AUTHENTICITY: resist the urge to mimic popular prophets or even familiar prophets.
• AGILITY: God is going to send you into other arenas, and you must be willing and able to shift quickly and act decisively.
• AUDACITY: You must address any self-esteem issues which would cause you to nullify the directive of the Lord to speak boldly and to act decisively with prophetic instructions.
