Prophets Handbook – EXHAUSTING

I’m just going to stop reading this book here.  It’s spiritually exhausting to read through anymore of it.  Maybe there’s some good points if we get further into the book, but with so much wrong in the beginning there is no amount of good that can balance it out.  As I went through all ofContinue reading “Prophets Handbook – EXHAUSTING”

Prophets Handbook- THE CONTROVERSY OVER OFFICE VERSUS GIFTING (pg.139)

Here’s yet another thing that Paula and I can agree with: Those which believe in the continuation of sign gifts never seem to take the time to vet the person claiming to be a Prophet of God.  But we start to disagree at the point she talks about how man is in charge of theContinue reading “Prophets Handbook- THE CONTROVERSY OVER OFFICE VERSUS GIFTING (pg.139)”

Prophet's Handbook-LEGITAMATE COMMISSIONING (pg.131)

Not much to say about the sections from the last one to this one, except that it could have been condensed significantly.  But in this little section, Paula and I can certainly agree on the modern practice of commissioning people to the Great Commissioning. Some churches go to great lengths to train those they areContinue reading “Prophet's Handbook-LEGITAMATE COMMISSIONING (pg.131)”

Prophet’s Handbook – PROPHETS AS AGENTS (pg.123)

“The person needs not be neither feared or trusted until God does.” – Paula Price on a prophet which hasn’t had a prophecy come true yet Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think that God ever will if the “prophet” has been proven to not be speaking on behalf of God.  The only time thatContinue reading “Prophet’s Handbook – PROPHETS AS AGENTS (pg.123)”

Prophet’s Handbook – AGENTS AND OFFICERS – WHAT THEY DO (pg.121)

In this section, Paula brings up intercession, which gives me a fantastic time to ask you all a question (not intended to be an admonishment): When you pray on behalf of your community or a country, what are the elements of your prayer?  Do you ever ask God to forgive them?  For example – ifContinue reading “Prophet’s Handbook – AGENTS AND OFFICERS – WHAT THEY DO (pg.121)”

SAMUEL’S MANTLE: A CHURCH PROPHET MINISTRY MODEL (pg.?)-

“If a ministry wants to become and remain biblically correct, then every gathering is to contain a representative of three out of five of the Ephesians 4:11 officers.” -Paula Price This seems to be Paula’s own theory.  Ephesians 4:11-12 reads: And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastorsContinue reading “SAMUEL’S MANTLE: A CHURCH PROPHET MINISTRY MODEL (pg.?)-“

Prophet’s Handbook – HOW ISRAEL’S PROPHETIC ORDER BEGAN-SAMUEL THE PRIESTLY PROPHET (pg.105)

“Samuel also inaugurated the judgeship system under the direction and rule of Jehovah.” -Paula Price While it is true that Samuel set up his sons to be Judges, I can’t help but wonder why she seems to believe that the entire book of Book of Judges took place during Samuel’s ministry.  The problem with this,Continue reading “Prophet’s Handbook – HOW ISRAEL’S PROPHETIC ORDER BEGAN-SAMUEL THE PRIESTLY PROPHET (pg.105)”

Prophet’s Handbook – MANTLES OF A PROPHET (pg. 96)

I’m going to hit on two points under this section.  First is the two stories that Paula tells to explain the invisible mantle God puts around people.  The first story is about a woman that – much later after Paula did a reading discovered – was a high ranking military person.  Paula describes an armorContinue reading “Prophet’s Handbook – MANTLES OF A PROPHET (pg. 96)”

Prophet’s Handbook – PROPHETIC IMAGERY AND SYMBOLISM (pg. 99)

Paula isn’t the first person I have seen trying to codify this idea that you could probably create a Dream Dictionary to understand what God is saying to us.  She makes this sweeping statement that some things have universal meaning to them- which isn’t true. Let’s take Birds as an example.  Birds are messengers inContinue reading “Prophet’s Handbook – PROPHETIC IMAGERY AND SYMBOLISM (pg. 99)”

Prophet’s Handbook – CHAPTER 3: THE IMPORTANCE OF THE NUMBER SEVEN -FUNCTIONAL DIVISIONS OF THE PROPHET’S OFFICE (pg.84)

Here we go with the number seven again.  The number 7 certainly has a place in God’s heart, after all, it’s on the 7th Day He rested and on the 7th Day we are to keep the Sabbath.  But that doesn’t mean we have rulers over 7 Spheres.  God uses 3 Days, he did thisContinue reading “Prophet’s Handbook – CHAPTER 3: THE IMPORTANCE OF THE NUMBER SEVEN -FUNCTIONAL DIVISIONS OF THE PROPHET’S OFFICE (pg.84)”
