Scripture

  1. 1st Corinthians 14:29 ( Orderly Worship ) [ Link ]
    • …But if there is no interpreter, he should remain silent in the church and speak only to himself and God.
    • Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said.
    • And if a revelation comes to someone who is seated, the first speaker should stop.…
  2. Lamentations 3
  3. 1st King 22 – Ahab & the First Prophets [ Link ]
    • 5)But Jehoshaphat also said to the king of Israel, “Please inquire first for the word of the LORD.”
    • 6 ) So the king of Israel assembled the prophets, about four hundred men, and asked them, “Should I go to war against Ramoth-gilead, or should I refrain?”
    • “Go up,” they replied, “and the Lord will deliver it into the hand of the king.”
    • 7) But Jehoshaphat asked, “Is there not still a prophet of the LORD here of whom we can inquire?”
    • 8) The king of Israel answered, “There is still one man who can ask the LORD, but I hate him because he never prophesies anything good for me, but only bad. He is Micaiah son of Imlah.”
    • “The king should not say that!” Jehoshaphat replied.
    • 9) So the king of Israel called one of his officials and said, “Bring Micaiah son of Imlah at once.”
    • 10) Dressed in royal attire, the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah were sitting on their thrones at the threshing floor by the entrance of the gate of Samaria, with all the prophets prophesying before them.
    • 11) Now Zedekiah son of Chenaanah had made for himself iron horns and declared, “This is what the LORD says: ‘With these you shall gore the Arameans until they are finished off.’ ”
    • 12) And all the prophets were prophesying the same, saying, “Go up to Ramoth-gilead and prosper, for the LORD will deliver it into the hand of the king.”
  4. Ahab & Micaiah – 1st Kings 22:13-16 [ Link ]
    • Then the messenger who had gone to call Micaiah instructed him, “Behold now, with one accord the words of the prophets are favorable to the king. So please let your words be like theirs, and speak favorably.”
    • But Micaiah said, “As surely as the LORD lives, I will speak whatever the LORD tells me.”
    • When Micaiah arrived, the king asked him, “Micaiah, should we go to war against Ramoth-gilead, or should we refrain?”
    • “Go up and triumph,” Micaiah replied, “for the LORD will give it into the hand of the king.”
    • But the king said to him, “How many times must I make you swear not to tell me anything but the truth in the name of the LORD?”
  5. Jeremiah 23:16-17 ( Lying Prophets ) [ Link ]
    • 16) “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you.They are filling you with false hopes.They speak visions from their own minds,not from the mouth of the LORD.
    • 17) They keep saying to those who despise Me,‘The LORD says that you will have peace,’and to everyone who walks in the stubbornness of his own heart, ‘No harm will come to you.’
  6. 1st Samuel 3:19 – Samuel Shares the Vision [ Link ]
    • …So Samuel told him everything and did not hide a thing from him. “He is the LORD,” replied Eli. “Let Him do what is good in His eyes.”
    • And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and He let none of Samuel’s words fall to the ground.
    • So all Israel from Dan to Beersheba knew that Samuel was confirmed as a prophet of the LORD.…
  7. James 5:13-16 – The Prayer of Faith ( Link )
    • 13) Is any one of you suffering? He should pray. Is anyone cheerful? He should sing praises.
    • 14) Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord.
    • 15) And the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick. The Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.
    • 16) Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man has great power to prevail.
  8. 1 Thessalonians 5:12 – Christian Living ( Link )
    • And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labor among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;
  9. Plunder the wicked
    • Proverbs 12:12 ( Link )
      • The wicked desireth the net of evil men: but the root of the righteous yieldeth fruit.
    • Proverbs 1:17 ( Link )
      • How futile it is to spread the net where any bird can see it!
  10. 2nd Chronicles 20:20 ( Link )
    • And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
