God have a standard for you and its up to you on how you uphold the standards. God Standard is what we live by as christians.
“Please don’t misinterpret my failure to visit you, friends. You have no idea how many times I’ve made plans for Rome. I’ve been determined to get some personal enjoyment out of God’s work among you, as I have in so many other non-Jewish towns and communities. But something has always come up and prevented it. Everyone I meet—it matters little whether they’re mannered or rude, smart or simple—deepens my sense of interdependence and obligation. And that’s why I can’t wait to get to you in Rome, preaching this wonderful good news of God.” (Romans 2:19-20 KJV)
At this time in your life, can you confidently say that you know God completely? Do you know what pleases God? Do you know what hurts God? Do you know how to make God smile? Do you know His promises? Have you seen His wonders in your life? What blessings have you acknowledged that are from Him?
Some of us are still puzzled of who God is. His very nature is still vague in our minds. It is true that human’s thinking cannot comprehend the mind of God because He is an all-knowing, all-powerful God.
Nowadays, the ambiguities of God still exist. He still has mysteries at work in our lives. God is an awesome God full of mysteries that will inspire us. He knew what happened in the past, and knows what can happen in your future.
False prophets will never know who truly God is. Christians, will have their hearts open for God, and His works will proclaim who He is. It is very important to know the Lord for you to not be victimized by false prophecies. The first calling of every prophet is to seek the Lord, and to worship Him. Prophets are friends of God and He demands to know Him personally, not only to have knowledge of Him.
When you know God personally, you know His standards. Judging prophecies then becomes an easy task. When you receive a prophecy, how do you respond to it? Do you compare it with what is written in the Scripture? In order to judge a prophetic word, be sure to compare it with the Word of God. Anything that is not written in the Scripture should be disallowed. Pray earnestly for this word. Ask God to reveal to you if this is authentically from Him. God answers your prayers, so don’t be afraid to ask.
Now, give yourself time to process everything. Then, ask yourselves these questions: “Does the prophecy come true?” and “Does the word set us free?”. Deuteronomy 18:21-22 says, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the Lord? If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.” God’s prophecies always come true. His prophecies are not set in stone. These prophecies will testify that He is God, and this truth will set us free.
