One of the hardest parts of being a true Prophet of God, or seeing as a true prophetic intercessor, is seeing what so many others in the Body do not see...especially in regards to deception, and those who are following deceiving spirits.
It is truly one of the most weighty and heart-wrenching things to see God's people being led astray into doctrines of demons and strange fire, and being unable to pull them back and make them see. 😔
True prophets would never ask to be a Prophet, as it is a heavy burden to bear...they simply are one. And has Jeremiah said, even if they don't want to be, "It is a fire shut up in their bones"!
Lord, I ask you to strengthen Your true prophets who are grieving over the state of what they see, hear, and know! Strengthen them with might, and help them to stand strong as Your plumbline in the Body of Christ!
"O Lord, You induced me, and I was persuaded; You are stronger than I, and have prevailed. I am in derision daily; Everyone mocks me. For when I spoke, I cried out; I shouted, 'Violence and plunder!' Because the word of the Lord was made to me a reproach and a derision daily. Then I said, “I will not make mention of Him, nor speak anymore in His name.” But His word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, And I could not." ~ Jeremiah 20:7-9
