AN OPEN LETTER OF CONCERN WITH TODAY’S PUBLIC PROPHETIC CULTURE

 

I wanted to film this instead of writing it because sentiment can get lost in translation, and I wanted people to hear my heart on a topic that I know is dear to many – but also a place of great pain and confusion to some people, also.

It’s a lengthy video, I know. But it may bless you or others you know. 
Feel free to share it, if you like.

Shalom ~
David Tensen

P.S. As I state in the video:
I’m open to comments, thoughts etc. I very much do accept correction from loving friends, but I don’t engage in attacks from strangers / especially those in the household of faith. So I will delete dishonourable comments and may even block those who won’t be civil in discussion.

    Hello David,
    I have just listened to what you have spoken and every point you have made has been very valid to this time of the many Prophetic voices to the Body of Christ now.
    I have become so sceptic of the majority of Prophetic utterances and have felt had I missed out on what the ” majority of Prophetic voices are saying”. It was interesting to hear you what to consider about it, the decisions I had made of them was deleting the sites of these Prophetic saints, because there was just too daily emails from them.
    Through the Holy Spirit is quite able to tell me whats on Gods heart for me, and quite able to bring His Prophetic written word alive to me. It is a timely message, thank you. Sandy

    Thanks for that David. I have followed, read heaps of these prophecies for at least the last 6 years, without seeing any change. My wife also says I am using these to get my fortune told 🙁

    Latest season( for years) I have struggled to hear anything or direction or wisdom regarding certain issues so I accept your prayer of clarity over us.

    I know I gotta stop reading these prophecies cause I get on a “high” for 2 days but then back to were nothing changes.

    Pure Wisdom in this message David. Thank you! I’d never considered mass prophetic words as sometimes bordering on a horoscope type thing….but food for thought. I unsubscribed years ago from most things like that, just because it was too much and it lost its value amidst the busyness. It also took precious time away from Father and I hanging out….

    I did have the thought drop in as you spoke, that between now and bible times, the speed and pace at which we can be “fed” words etc, can leave us with little time to process with God, the very words He wanted to use to draw us nearer to Him. I’m understanding that biblical times the pace and process was slower and more indepth. Time to process a personal word is enough. The purpose is always to draw us nearer to Himself.

    Do you see the contrast between the biblical times model – the Holiness and value that was placed upon faith and God encounter at that time……and the contemporary view where we have the “world” of information at our fingertips, the opportunity of having a deep & intimate relationship with Father, but Holiness and Value of what we truly have access to-are seemingly far away.
    Are these prophetic words to the masses, a way of endeavouring to have the outcome without the process? A way of getting the fringe benefits without the intimacy.
    I see things reflected in our culture very much….it’s sad.
    Thankfully as you beautifully articulated, God is in both breakdown and breakthrough. Your 3 points were wise, biblical and the prayer are very much appreciated. Bless you also.

    Hi, David. I so appreciated what you had to say. It was relevant, gracious and timely – well done. I resonated deeply with your observations and concerns. I have seen a lot of what I can only call “charismatic witchcraft” over the years which damages the genuine prophetic ministry that is faithful to Scripture. Thank you! Would love to meet up at some point. Keep going! Bless you.

    Thank you for sharing wisdom concerning today’s prophetic culture. Well said.
    You speak the truth in love.

    Loved this message. I feel as well that many try to claim prophetic words that are not for them. Also, there is the now and not yet in prophecy. We must keep ourselves in check as I may want this word for myself, but the holy spirit will let us know what is for us and what is not. As you said we must keep close to God and this helps us to be less likely to fall into some of these traps.
