PROPHETS ARE NOT GOD (EPISODE SEVENTEEN)
BIBLE VERSE: And lo marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2 Cor. 11:14 (KJV)
Many Christians build their lives on prophecies to the neglect of the word of God. The Bible confirms that many false prophets have gone in to the world, deceiving so many. Man is both physical and spiritual, thus the yearning for a spiritual force to foresee and foretell what the future holds. However, God desires that every man have personal relationship with him. He wants to lead and direct our paths. But many times, we are not in tune with Him. This is what leads many to the search for Prophets who can “hear” God on their behalf.
Morakinyo started well but later deviated. He could not hear God and decode what is actually from God and what is not from him. When a man looses the focus on God, he needs another man like him to see and hear God for him. This is exactly what happened to Morakinyo. Oyinkansola became his seer. There is nothing wrong when the wife hears God for her husband. In fact, God expects women to be watchmen for their households. But when prophecies begin to move you far away from God, then you must watch it.
Brother Paul said it in plain language “But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” The devil is in the business of disguising, so the need for everyone to have direct access to God. Stop searching for Prophets and prophecies! You can access your Father in Heaven!
This is not to say Prophets have no place in your Christian living, neither am I saying there are no true prophets. However, replacing God with Prophets is the danger. Review your life; don’t replace God with Prophets and prophecies. Prophets are men like you.
