A Prophet- is born

Jeremiah 1:4-5
Then the word  of the Lord came to me saying: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. Before you were born I sanctified you. I ordained you a Prophet to the nations". Ephesians 4:11 says: He(God) Himself gave some to be Apostles, some Prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teacher.These scriptures clearly states that a  Prophet is born not groomed into position by man.A true Prophet is ordained by God from birth, and is a gift to the body of Christ..  Even so, modern day churches have rules detemining how one is released into the gospel ministry.  In most denominations an individual will go to their pastor saying they believe they have a call on their life.  They will have a trial sermon and be given a lisence to preach, and in most cases take on the title Reverend(which is not in the Holy Scriptures). In many situations the Reverend will be an assistnat or assocaite minister of his or her church  until later being installed as pastor of another. In other fellowships, it is the pastor who says God has told him it is time to lisence someone, and after trial sermon that individual will be referred to as a minister. After functioning for a time the minister may be promoted and ordained to the title of Elder. And it may be said of the Elder that he or she operates in one of the 5 giftings from God outlined in Ephesians. While Deacons Deaconess Trustees and even pastors in some cases  may be appointed or voted upon, no man can give you the prophetic call.  This is one time it is between you and God alone.  A  pastor may chose not  to recognize your gift, but he will not stop it from flowing.  Without proper teaching, as you find you perceive situations before they happen, you may consider yourself a psychic or medium.  You may even be told your gift is a curse from the devil. This is why you need to have received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, be filled wity the Holy Spirit and emerse yourself in God's  word to make sure you do not open the door to demonic forces. Nebhi'ah Ministries will offer a safe haven with sound biblical teaching for Prophetic women.  While only a few women Prophets are mnetioned in the bible, and none wrote their own chapter in the Holy Word, it does not mean they were non existant or less important than their male counter parts. A Prophet grows while seeking the Lord with all their heart. He Our Heavenly Father is the Master and teacher. Most things will come straight from Him and not be taught by anyone else, but caught from gthe realm of the Holy Spirit...This is why you must be sensitive to and know His voice.  Thank you ofr stopping by Nebhi'ah Ministries, and hold on to this first lesson straight from the word of God.  A Prophet/Prophetess is born.  You were chosen before you knew Him, but He knew you. A pastor having a service to lisence install  appoint or ordain you does not prove that God has annoingted you.Being registered with your state Government toperform marriages and funerals gives you legitmate an legal right to function.  Obtaining an academic degree  carries prestiege but does not prove God has puty His seal of approval upon you. Neither does your spiritual leaders dismissing you  indicate that you are not.called by God.
