Pierce's Prophecy

I just read the article: "God's Word on the Gulf Coast Crisis" by Chuck Pierce. Do you have a process whereby every prophetic "word" is weighed, tested, and judged, before publishing? Such a process is commanded (1Th 5:21) and promotes prophetic integrity. Pierce's article sounds "spiritual" but (to me) lacks the character of the prophetic of the New Testament, and subjectively, just feels off.

  • Dear Reader,

    The prophetic words and teachings distributed through our Prophetic Insight e-newsletter come from recognized leaders in the body of Christ with whom our organization and its leaders have a relationship. Our personal knowledge of them and their ministries gives us the confidence to publish what they write, though we make no claim that any person is infallible in his ability to hear God. We encourage our readers to test the messages and determine by the witness in their own spirits whether to accept or reject them (see 1 John 4:1).

    Thanks for your question.

  • Reputable or not, we can all make a mistake and "words" must be "tested" before distributed for public consumption. Your response suggests a lack of prophetic accountability in these matters. This is not the OT age of the lone prophet, but the NT age of body ministry--"the eye needs the ear!" I do not write to condemn nor to debate, but am asking politely, and respectfully, to please "test before you publish."

  • PS: so you have no process for "testing?"

    When you leave the testing to the reader, you do not take into account how young developing Christians accept everything that sounds spiritual, for their discernment is not fully developed. (This is my experience with over 25 years of ministry)

  • Why no reply? I'm not some hot-head to dismiss... there are serious questions.

    Do you not answer because it is true that you have no process of testing, even mature prophetic leaders?

    I have seem many mature prophetic leaders give false prophecies. Their hearts and intentions were right. They were godly people, but they missed it--caught up in the moment of a cultural trend or a strong feeling.

    We Pentecostal/Charismatics have a bad habit of not addressing this issue. We move on, hoping folks will forget--and they do! Or, we spiritualize the failed prophecy as being somehow fulfilled in some other unseen way.

    Isn't it better to be honest? Doesn't this help us do better the next time? Isn't the church scandalized by the world by our flaky and bogus prophecies? Yes, yes, and yes.

    Your reply?
