1/24/2021 – On False Prophets

II Peter 1:21 - for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
How many times have we heard prophecy
From men who claim to know the word of God,
But then to find they cannot truly see
A single thing He says, for they are flawed.
The will of man won’t ever know the truth
Without the Holy Spirit as his guide;
The things he claims from God are all uncouth
And from the start are so disqualified.
Prophetic words don’t come from heart or mind;
You cannot wish the things you say are true.
The Holy Ghost with verity aligned
Reveals through revelation God’s purview.
            The will of man is marred in every way,
            So listen to the Spirit every day.
