Scripture: Revelation 19:10
Revelation 19:10 says, “And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, ‘See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.’” When we are listening to prophecy about the end-times, one of the things we need to recognize is that there is a biblical, foundational pattern to all prophecy. There is a thumbprint-thread that one has to have to qualify. That thumbprint-thread is it must follow the testimony of Jesus. The testimony of Jesus, as we have seen, includes a baptism and a cup. The purpose determines the call, the call determines the power and the power determines the suffering. Any prophecy that has no price-tag for the church in the last days does not have the testimony of Jesus in it and therefore comes from another spirit. Every time we have heard individual ministers prophesy the date of Jesus’ return, there is no price-tag in it at all, and the prophecies have always proved false. Any “victorious eschatology” that has no price is of another spirit and it is not God. The testimony of Jesus carriers a cost!
