Spiritual Abuse in the Prophetic Movement

By: Rene Picota

My motivation in writing this article is love. I desire that those who are being spiritually abused by the prophetic movement to be set free. As a minister of the Gospel and leader in the body of Christ, I have a responsibility to protect God's flock and to share God's truth. There are times when correction is needed. This is one of those moments. 

Ever since Trump lost the election, many prophets have buckled down with their prophecies that Trump would be elected president for another 4 years. Yesterday a new president was inaugurated. 

I am grateful for Prophets who have taken responsibility for their error in prophesying that Trump would be president. I am even grateful for those who gave a perfunctory apology and then tried to play it off like the election was stolen or that Trump would win in 2024. While I doubt that they really meant their apologies, it at least minimizes some of the damage done by giving false prophetic words.

American Christians, we need to talk.

Over the past four years, I have watched as ministers that I once respected and admired abandoned the love for Jesus and others that I once witnessed them passionately preach with. I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard prophets predict elections and abandon their mandate from God to equip the saints for a political agenda. I tearfully watched leaders that once spoke into my life and have done so much good in the body of Christ begin to bully and mock anyone who pushed back against their political ideals. We the Church have tossed out the love of God, and the love of true righteousness, and we have traded it for an “us vs. them” mindset.
 
We can no longer discuss nuanced topics such as abortion, immigration, gun legislation, etc. where the other person may have a different take on the topic. Instead we create fear-mongering propaganda in the form of Facebook memes; Instead we perpetuate lies about whoever “them” is. Lies such as “They...

I Will Do It In An Instant!

I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, "I will intervene and turn everything around for you in an instant! What has been delayed was not denied. Even the spiritual warfare you have been battling through is now over! Even around the funds that were promised to you... The enemy tried to cause delays, but the funds are about to manifest in your bank account. Within the next 24 hours things are going to change dramatically for you! I will provide for you as you surrender everything to Me."

I saw in the spirit realm a black hand holding provision from God's saints. I saw witchcraft coming against the finances but the Lord has sent me with this prophetic word to deliver you! The witchcraft causing confusion and crying will never come near you again! The Kingdom of Heaven has come near to you today! Nothing is impossible!

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything...

Golden Glory in 2021!

"Out of the north he comes in golden splendor; God comes in awesome majesty. The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress. Therefore, people revere him, for does he not have regard for all the wise in heart?” -Job 37:22-24

I hear the Lord saying, "Expect a forecast of My golden glory upon your life. My glory will fall like never before. I will cover you in My glory. I will release the fullness of My Spirit upon you and I will fill all those who are hungry and thirsty. I will fill every lonely heart with My presence. I am so close to you My child. I am with you. I will never leave you or forsake you."

I see swirls of glory all over the globe. I see golden swirls and I see angels flying over the land ministering. I see angels depositing gifts, anointing's, callings, and dreams inside of hearts. As the glory touches your life, the burdens will lift. The fear will leave you. The anxiety will disappear. "Abide in...

2021: The Year to Build Your Dream!

I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, "2021 will be the year to build your dream! It's time to stop focusing on the past and on the present. Focus on what is ahead. I long to birth something holy through you in this season. I am anointing you afresh for your Kingdom assignment. The best has yet to come! Great things are on their way!" 

Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction. -Proverbs 29:18

"In this season, write the vision down and make it plain. Open the eyes of your heart and see what I am about to do. Focus on the one thing I have called you to right now. You will gain clarity and divine insight as you do. Not every opportunity that presents itself is for you. I have long term rewards for your obedience. Follow Me. You will reap if you faint not."

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the...

Kari Browning: A Call To Prophetic Purity

I believe that God is using Kari Browning to call prophetic ministers back to a place of repentance. More than ever, the power of the prophetic is needed in the church and in the world. We need prophetic voices who operate with purity and don't allow their emotions or political agendas to pollute what the Lord is really saying. Will the trusted Prophet's of God repent for allowing a lying spirit to fill their mouths or will they remain prideful and lose their influence and become irrelevant to this generation? -Rene Picota, Empower for Life 

Younger people are seeking religious authenticity. They are spiritually hungry but cannot tolerate the Church in its compromised state.

Hypocrisy has been on full display the last four years as Evangelicals abandoned values they once held dear and opted for political power instead. 

Jesus told us to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees (hypocrisy) and the leaven of Herod (political power). I believe the Church needs to be...

The Golden Anointing!

Hallelujah! I feel fresh golden oil! I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, "I am anointing you afresh today with fresh oil. This oil will carry you through the journey. This anointing is for miracles. It's for breakthrough. It's a divine empowerment to bring forth My power and My glory in the land. I am instilling in you new gifts and new talents. I am teaching you how to do new things in this season. New opportunities will present themselves. I see many of you having new desires to try new things. Some will sing. Some will play an instrument. Others will write. Some will dance and praise all the way to their breakthrough says the Lord."

"Elisha replied to her, “How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?” “Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil.” 2 Kings 4:2

It may not look like much, but all you need is already within your reach. You are the jar that will carry His oil. You may not...

Prophetic Word for December 2020

I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, "You will finish 2020 strong! I will perform what I have spoken to you. What I have promised you for 2020 will surely come to pass. I am bound to My Word and things are about to come into focus for you and you will see why you had to go through what you did. Nothing bad was from me. I am good and I will surely bless you in the month of December. Even with a Christmas Miracle!" 

“Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundred-fold. And the Lord blessed him.” -Genesis 26:12

God says," I will surely bless you a hundred-fold. It is a time of aggressive sowing and reaping. It's harvest time! In the same year just like the Lord blessed Issac, the Lord will bless you too!" 

Before there can be a harvest that is reaped, just like Issac sowed into the land, you must sow also. What is the land prophetic for? I believe the land is prophetically symbolic of the ministry or church that has been ministering to you. For...

It's About To Happen To You!

“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. -Amos 9:13 MSG

I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying, "It's about to happen to you! Breakthrough is on the horizon. It's so close and it will happen so fast so don't give up! I am orchestrating it all to work together for your good. It will be a chain reaction of miracles that changes so many. Oh so many will be touched as My Spirit blows upon the land. My Spirit will carry you higher and higher. All of a sudden things will come into focus and everything will start to make sense. The timing of it will be perfect. Everything and everyone involved will see and know that I am the Lord."

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you...
