LOOK OUT

READ: Jeremiah 23:21-32

I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. Jeremiah 23:21

Some people enter the ministry because they have no other options. God did not speak to them, yet they ran! God did not send them, yet they went! They see the ministry as a good career option!

I once heard a minister on television saying that he came into the ministry because he was not good at chemistry, history, maths, biology or any of the other subjects. That is why he entered into the ministry. Is it not amazing that people can shamelessly fulfil such Scriptures on television for us all to see? They were not sent but they went! They were not spoken to by God but they began to prophesy and to teach! Learn to identify such people and do not sit under their ministries because you will be sitting under the wrong person!

Identify people who enter the ministry through false dreams. Many people have false dreams. Unfortunately, some actually enter the ministry because of a false dream. As you can see, false ministry will not really benefit the people. The Lord has cursed false prophets because they cause the people to err through their lives. Almost every minister claims to have heard from the Lord before embarking on his mission. Unfortunately, some saw visions and dreams of their own hearts. All these ministries must be left to time. We shall know them by their fruits.
