2020: A Decade to Believe the (True) Prophets
We’re in the midst of a prophetic reset. The second wave of the prophetic is upon us. The wheat and the tares will continue to grow up together, and discernment is vital in this hour.
There aren’t many scriptures that contain 2020—and one in particular got my attention as it relates to the prophetic reset.
2 Chronicles 20:20 says, “Have faith in the LORD your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.”
We should always believe true prophets and act on the word of the Lord that comes out of their mouth. But with the rise of false prophets it will be even more important to judge words and follow what the true prophets are saying to the church—and to you.
We want to believe the true prophets and spit out any false prophetic utterance that hits our ears before it sinks into our soul.
Again, 2 Chronicles 20:20 says, “Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.”
Notice how it says to have faith in the Lord and faith in His prophets. Not the false prophets. His prophets. The true prophets. And, again, this means discerning God’s voice through prophets so we don’t end up hoodwinked.
Look at some other translations of this verse:
“Put your trust in the Lord your God and you will be established. Put your trust in His prophets and succeed” (NASB).
“Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper” (NKJV).
“Trust in the LORD your God and you will be safe! Trust in the message of his prophets and you will win” (NET Bible).
“Believe in the Lord your God and you shall be established; believe and remain steadfast to His prophets and you shall prosper” (AMPC).
“Believe firmly in God, your God, and your lives will be firm! Believe in your prophets and you’ll come out on top!” (The Message).
I decree no false prophecy shall enter your soul but true prophets will find a way in your path. And remember, you are your own best prophet. True prophets will teach you to hear from the Lord for yourself.
