An Observation on Prophets

Biblical prophets are first acquainted with their own evil before they can say “Thus saith the Lord.” In our day, some prophets like the ego trip of “thus saith the Lord” without first saying, “Woe is me. I am undone! For I am a man of unclean lips and I speak to a people of unclean lips” ~Isaiah. We must first be fully acquainted and willing to face our own evil before being able to humbly submit to God whereby we may be given a confidence in the Spirit to speak His truth.
