It’s amazing how so many people are on my “friends” list yet they fail to engage me. Most, if not all have said they are here to network, sadly, their version of network is try to get me to endorse them (what? I just met you); buy their item (what, you haven’t even told me why I should, nor have you held a decent conversation with me or try to mimic what I do (uh- let’s get one thing straight – you may see me as your competition, but what GOD HAS FOR TABITHA VINSON IS FOR TABITHA VINSON); there are some who have engaged me want me to minister to them – I’m honored by that and grateful to G-d.
I do reach out and stop by to say hello, but all I receive is a like to those responses. I have many who send me a “congrats” through the inbox instead of out in the open, others are just playing the numbers game (how many “friends” I can collect?).
I thought the use of SOCIAL media, was to engage one another; to bring the art of networking online from the offline world. This is a sad use of the SOCIAL media very sad. Hmmm, new moves are about to be made.
Ok I’m done exhaling.
What I’m about to share applies to everyone; however, my focus is strictly on the Office of the Prophet. I had a disturbing conversation with a Pastor friend of mine, who shared with me his concern about a prophet who has a tendency to gossip. I nearly flipped as I was told that this particular prophet is known to be well traveled and “seasoned.”
As an oracle or mouth piece for God, prophets are to be careful of what is allowed in their sphere. “How can a Prophet speak HIS WORD to HIS PEOPLE, the people they are assigned to, and allow garbage to enter into their ears?”
It’s a continuing trend that has plagued this particular office. To many times people receive a word, and that word falls to the ground. One of the reasons is because of things like – GOSSIP! It’s a great misrepresentation of God. Prophets mainly keep to themselves, are regulators, and can be standoffish because of what they have to deal with; it’s a mantle that not everyone is qualified to carry.
I digressed for a moment because this prophet is literally a cancer within the Bride of Christ; yes my statement is strong, but it’s the truth. I understand no one is perfect, but the word says “Dear brothers and sisters,[a] not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged more strictly.” James 3:1 (NLT). This verse not only refers to Teachers, but to the Five-Fold, which includes the Prophets.
Prophets are Teachers in every way, shape, and form. The delivery is what’s different as no two Prophets are the same. However, the commonality is that Prophets are exposed to the supernatural and their spirit man can’t be tainted. I’m going to stop here as I’m done exhaling for now, so I’ll close with this…
LORD, separate the sheep from the goats that exists among the Prophets.
Had an awesome time today at a workshop so much confirmation; one spirit (GOD) operating through three different deliverers. Yes they were speakers/instructors, but each message brought about a deep level and dimension of deliverance that I had a right to obtain, poses and of course will maintain.
The last deliverer talked about keys. I started cracking up as what he was teaching on relates to the Keys series that will be coming out in 2013 by yours truly. I am so grateful for all the things GOD is doing and how HE continues to be faithful and encourages me as I continue to work through PWICU.
LORD I will always say thank you.
Falls down and worships.
