I have found the prophetic gift, including inspirational preaching, teaching, and prophetic words, to be the most edifying of all the gifts — as St Paul said in 1 Corinthians 14. However, with every true gift of God comes either a counterfeit and or an abuse. You can say that about all of the cluster gifts mentioned in Ephesians 4:11. The prophetic gift can especially be very dangerous if left un-checked, since people think the words spoken are directly from God and will often obey them without question or the use of discernment. Based on all my years of studying and observing many facets of prophetic ministry, the following are ten signs of prophetic abuse and manipulation.I write this to serve as a guide to increase the level of discernment and true edification in the body of Christ. All sincere Christ followers should welcome these warning signs. If they are truly endeavoring to serve the Lord, they will welcome correction and or desire more discernment in the Church.
