Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
“Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who prophesy, and say to those who prophesy out of their own heart, ‘Hear the word of the Lord!’ ” – Ezek 13:2
We must always prophecy from God’s word, not out of our “own heart.” Our hearts can be wicked:
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? – Jer 17:9
So they need to be redeemed! And the only way to redeem a wicked heart is with the word of God.
True prophecy always lines up with God’s word. God is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8), and a house divided cannot stand (Matt 12:25). God will not contradict Himself! He will not speak something today through His prophets that contradicts something He said in His word! If a word you receive from a “prophet” lines up with 1) God’s word and 2) what He has been speaking to you in prayer, receive it; but if a prophetic word ever disagrees with God’s word, beware!
Father, help me to recognize true prophecy. I know every genuine prophetic word will align with Your written word. I pray that whenever I receive or hear a word, I would measure it against Your word, in Jesus’ name.
