The Need Among Today’s Prophets

Released September 7, 2021 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


The Church needs to go on record and declare that there is a desperate need for more God-sent prophets today who speak the true word of the Lord. Our generation is being pulled with deception from multiple directions each and every day. Holy Spirit-guided prophets gain the attention of the people and refocus them on what God has said and is still saying. This present generation needs an authoritative, clear prophetic voice.   But there is an alarming trend of unaccountable prophets who seem to have the Word of the Lord… but not His heart.   In this episode of Mavericks & Misfits, Jeff calls all of us to consider that God evaluates not only what we say, but how we say it. It is not enough to merely have the truth and release it. God expects those who speak for Him to intentionally reflect who He is, not just what He is saying. There is one singular passage of New Testament scripture that clearly addresses the heart-posture of all of God’s servants. We cannot shirk the call to challenge and confront, but there is a lurking danger that we need to address if we are truly going to speak in the name of the Lord. Younger prophetic people especially need to hear what Paul declared to Timothy concerning those who expose, confront, correct and rebuke those who are caught in lies.
