A true prophecy from God will not go contrary with God's word, and the prophecy must come to fast. For example, a prophecy that says a woman shld divorce her husband is not from God. A prophecy that exalts a man or church above God is false. So, if the prophecy does not contradict the bible, pray about it and carry it out. Shalom

Well Mr Abasifo, I do not understand your comment. Is it that there is nothing like prophecy, cause as far as I know, Jesus gave us the true measure of prophets when He said " beware of false prophets who come in sheep's clothing, BY THEIR FRUITS YOU SHALL KNOW THEM".

Explain yourself further please.

Quote Graphic Rule

[20] But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

[21] And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?

[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.

If the prophet makes a single mistake -- if the prophet predicts one thing that does not come to pass, then that prophet has not spoken with God. So, since the Bible god botched this one, we don't have to believe a word that the Bible god says, right? Well, no, it's a bit more complicated than that -- but we've at least nullified Isaiah's claim to having been a prophet of God! According to the Bible, Isaiah was a false prophet, and ought to have been put to death. Do not pay attention to what Isaiah 53 says, no matter how impressive it sounds.

This is a tough one because it requires an appreciation of the subtlest aspects of religion. There are many who are in church profess and worship God with their mouths and ostensibly perform all the actions of a true disciple yet will be decieved. What am I talking about? Please further peruse these verses and pray about them:

And Jehovah said, “Who shall entice Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?” And one said on this manner; and another said on that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before Jehovah, and said, “I will entice him.” And Jehovah said to him, “Wherewith?” And he said, “I will go forth, and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.” And he said, “Thou shalt entice him, and shalt prevail also: go forth, and do so.” Now therefore, behold, Jehovah hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets; and Jehovah hath spoken evil concerning thee (1Kings 22:20-23).

and this:

Jeremiah4:10 Then I said, 'Ah, Lord God surely thou has utterly deceived this people and jerusalem saying "It will be well with thee"; whereas the sword has reached their very life.

And this:

Ezekiel 20:25Moreover I gave them statutes that were not Good and ordinances by which they could not have life.

Before you go and start waging everything you have on prophecy please first check yourself. Is God happy with you? It is not enough to perform the steps of religion outwardly. Even in Church you can hear the prophecy that will destroy your life.
