What I learned from talking to a prophet

ProphetI had a long discourse recently with someone who called herself a prophet whom God speaks to. The conversation brought out the best and the worst in me, and I am grateful for the dialogue for what it showed me. It concretized a lot of beliefs that I already had. One thing that was brought up in our conversation was my last blog post about Nothingness, which brought out our different viewpoints.

First, I must say that I have difficulty with the notion of a self-proclaimed prophet who says that God speaks directly to her, since I attribute that to the likes of Jesus, Buddha, Moses, Muhammad and the like. (Perhaps that is just me.) But a prophet can also mean anyone who claims to be a healer, teacher, leader or foreteller of the future.

A prophet of an elevated state such as Jesus is humble. And having God-given power does not preclude being gentle and subtle. Being powerful to me means being comfortable enough in your own skin so that you don’t feel the need to continue explaining yourself after a disagreement.

Let one another sit with each other’s own experience of the dialogue without trying to sway the other’s feelings about it with more words.

Words mean different things to different people. They can be interpreted differently and can be misconstrued. There is the literal dictionary meaning, but there is also the figurative symbolic meaning as well.

Accept others for who they are. Everyone is on their own path of evolution, with their own truths. But we are also mirrors of one another, reflecting the good and the bad in each other. So when we see something we don’t like in another, we should reflect back to see if it is something we don’t like in ourselves.

This brings me to a final point, something that I talk about in Radiant Survivor: what’s really important in life. To me, a strong relationship with myself, with others and with Spirit are what is most important. If you have these, you will have abundance in all aspects of your life.

  1. Interesting article.
    Some years ago I became a Roman Catholic because of the deep yearning I felt.
    The Church teaches that prophets will emerge to help humanity on its path to redemption. (I’m not a – no salvation outside the Church – person.) To find God we just need to be open to Him – he will find us! He will not force himself upon us! Thinking of the recent canonisation of Mother Teresa … Candidates for Sainthood need to be verified by their holiness in their lives and have miracles attributed to them. A prophet needs to be verified by what they are prophesying. If it is beneficial then that leads to credence? Prophets are not usually that humble because they are charged by God to be passionate and controversial. They are being asked to initiate change. Jesus and Mohammed were both these. I also think of Jeremiah, Saint Paul, St Joan of Arc, Mary Baker Eddy, William Booth and many others over the centuries. They were passionate and controversial and initiated great change. Humble before God yes but they were not shy in putting forward their message.
    Time will tell whether your prophet is in the same league!
