How many so-called "prophets" have you heard of today? Amazing TV evangelists who claim to speak words that God has given them , often wearing the latest fashion (or a fashion of a sort), casually throwing around words of prophecy, followed by a plea for money...
Do you think these people actually fear God? Have they really encountered Him in the way that everyone in the Bible did, who had similar roles these guys claim?
