A Warning to Prophets and the Prophetic Movement

I am releasing the following warning out of a broken heart and sense of urgency from the Father. This message is directed toward prophets and the prophetic community. Please keep that in mind as you read.

I have recently had a series of dreams where the Spirit of God has shown me that Satan is inciting the prophets of God to prophesy from the place of anger, rather than from the place of peace that can only come from the Spirit of God. This is a direct attempt to discredit the ministry of the prophet in the earth. 

In a particular dream I had, I was walking through a forest with thousands of prophets. As we came to an opening in the forest,   there appeared a large lake in front of us. Now the journey through the forest had taken many days and a number of the prophets were exhausted and dying of thirst.

As the prophets saw the lake appear before them, many went into a full sprint without looking into the water. I found it interesting that many of those running to the water were older seasoned prophets in the earth that I recognized. As I watched them run, I suddenly looked at the water in the lake and to my horror, it was polluted and contaminated with all sorts of waste and trash.

As the prophets drank, I looked around me and realized that there were but a few of us who recognized that though we were very thirsty from our journey, the polluted and contaminated water was not healthy and was not from the Spirit.


I began to weep in the dream and said to the Father, “What is wrong with these prophets? Are they blind? They have become like Esau who out of his exhaustion traded his birth right for a bowl of soup.”

The Father responded back to me in the dream and said, “Jeremiah, many prophets in America are drinking polluted and contaminated waters because they are tired and weary. They are giving in to anger and bitterness toward President Obama and the United States. They are prophesying out of the flesh and exchanging the pure word of my spirit for meaningless chatter that stirs up the people. They are mere false alarms.”

I fell on my knees in the dream and said, “Have you heard all these words from the prophets Father? They are prophesying of military takeover, the Russians coming, martial law, natural disasters, and more. Who am I, a young boy, to warn all these seasoned prophets of the waters of Marah? They will not listen to me!”

The Father spoke to me again and said, “Do not tell me what they will do and will not do. You prophesy to the prophetic movement and you warn them of the enemy inciting them to prophesy from the place of anger. My prophets must learn how to separate patriotism from what I am saying and doing. My prophets must learn how to separate their fears and worries from what I am saying and doing.”

As the Father said this, I immediately woke up from this dream and sat up in my bed. The Holy Spirit immediately gave me, Deuteronomy 29:29 which says, “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law.”

I said to the Holy Spirit, “What are you trying to tell me through this verse?”

He said, “You prophets believe that maturity looks like having a word for every event. I say maturity looks like not having to have a word for every event; unless I give you one. Do you not know that many prophets in the earth are simply prophesying from the flesh because they are upset that I have not said anything to them concerning the state of America. It is merely their pride and desire to be seen and heard that causes them to operate in anger and prophesy. Let it not be so with you!”


I am asking as someone within the prophetic movement, that you consider the above dream and what the Father has spoken to me. I recognize that we all see in part and have a different piece of the puzzle. I believe with all my heart that the enemy wants the prophets of God to drink from the waters of Marah. Satan wants to incite the prophets to prophesy from the place of anger which will lead to misdirection, false prophecy, fear, panic,  and more.

I am NOT at all saying that words of warning and impending destruction are not from God. What I am saying is that many prophetic words coming forth are being delivered from the place of anger. Prophets are being invited out of their weariness and tiredness to drink polluted and contaminated waters that are not from the Spirit of God.

We need to pray for real wisdom in this hour. We as prophetic people need to check our filters and ask the Holy Spirit to remove any unrighteous anger and bitterness in our hearts toward President Obama and America that will cause us to prophesy misdirected false words to the people. May the Father grant us a needed spirit of wisdom and revelation within the prophetic movement.

With urgency and sincerity,
