It’s not prophesy if you watch the news and quote what you hear, but tag it with thus says the Lord. It’s disrespectful to put Gods name on your “prophetic word” as though He said it. Church we get laughed at more than we know because of the shenanigans we call prophecy. It’s okay to have an opinion, a thought, or an idea, but don’t say God said unless God said. New Testament prophecy is to exhort, encourage and comfort, we all should do that, but please don’t say thus says the Lord when it’s clearly thus said CNN, FOX, MSNBC, WSJ, NYT or whatever your local station said. Love you!
