Foretelling and For Telling

Deut 18:20 But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in My name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.

I read an interesting article about the prophecies of the 2020 election.
Many evangelical/apostolic prophets declared a Trump victory.
Some declared after President Biden won that a legislative overturn of those results would happen.
Even one prophesied that as he was speaking these words the military was ousting Mr. Biden from office.
None of it came true.
It gives Christianity a black eye.
I remember the prophesies surrounding Y2K, that every computer would shut down and throw the entire world into chaos.
It never happened.
While I was attending Bible college in the late 1970s, I remember Brother Gaylor saying something about prophecy.
He said, “It is foretelling and for telling!”
Prophecy is speaking the words of God.
Do I believe in true prophets of God today?
I do!
But they are few and far between and surrounded by a world of false prophets.
The best prophecy is Brother Gaylor’s “for telling”.
The word of God is “for telling” to others.
Simply put, pick up your Bible, read it, and tell someone else about the marvelous grace of God.
God’s word is for telling!
