We cannot establish our theology and principles only from prophetic messages.That can result in dangerous and inaccurate theology.
(Hanny Setiawan)

God is more eager to be known than we want to know Him. We need to believe this. Sometimes we think that God is out there unreachable. So that we are too tired to seek Him and his will. Worse, we become frustrated and start living physically rather than spiritually.  Never mind divine accuracy, even to think divinely sometimes sound too spiritual nowadays.

God lives in different dimension, called heavenly realm. This realm cannot be seen with our physical senses, but by faith we have access to see the unseen (Hebrew 11:1-3). Through faith in the Word we will be able to live in heavenly realm even though physically we live in the world.

Knowing His Word though the holy Scripture is the most important element to know Him. Sadly, many prophetic and gifted people don’t think that exegesis and learning theology is as important as soaking, worshipping, and other spiritual activities.

Bible is the main revelation that God gives to us. The biblical truth is absolute. Meaning, it doesn’t matter how sharp we are prophetically, all prophetic revelation has to be tested with the biblical truth.

In fact, prophetic revelation gives insights and current understanding of the principles from the biblical truth.

We cannot establish our theology and principles only from prophetic messages. That can result in dangerous and inaccurate theology

This is the reason why Paul says to the Galatians, “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.” (Gal 1:8)

We need the biblical principles as divine sword, and we need prophetic revelation how to use the principles in a given situation. After that, Holy Spirit will lead us to the mind of Christ to make a biblical decision, whatever it is. This is what we call wisdom

Principle is the foundation. Prophetic message is the direction. From the principle and the direction we will have wisdom to live a Godly life. And we need to remember, it’s all started with living by faith: faith in His Word, His direction, His Wisdom!
