Thomas Gibson – Ministries – Prophets


1997 08 03.1

There is a new breed of prophets and ministers coming, says the Lord. And indeed they are here now—however, there will be much more in the coming days. There will be many more of them, a breed that I have raised up.

This breed is not of the world. They do not seek after a glorious ministry with a big name, and money in their pockets, and a glorious vision to the world, (that they will look good to the world). But rather they are interested in being humble. They are interested in being profitable to the master, Jesus. They are interested in being in the work that God has called them to do.

This is the ministry that I am calling in this hour. Listen, and heed it. Note it. You will see them, and they are part of My body. And the ministers that you see so prominent; many of them have gone their own way. Many of them are not walking in the ways that I have called them. Many of them are turning aside after the things of the world, and indeed I am giving them up—some of them—and others I am chastising, trying to get them back into the will that I have called them to do.


1997 08 03.2

Listen to the word of The King. I am here to direct your paths. I have sent prophets, I have sent ministers unto you to show you the way. These are not ministers that make a great show for outward appearance—they are of humble heart. They are seeking the will of the Lord. You will see them, not standing in the high places of the world making a great show, but you'll see them in the low places of the earth serving Me with their heart, with their whole heart, and this is the ministries that you are to listen to, these are the ministries that you are to harken unto, for they are the ones who listen closely to the Spirit of the living God.



1998 05 31.1

There is a calling of My prophets to stand up and be righteous, and not embellish the word, and not stretch it, and not exaggerate it.

For so many of My prophets have tried to make a name for themselves. They have tried to make a name using My name. They have tried to call themselves a prophet, and stand up, and make people look toward them.

No, says the Lord, not to be. A prophet of Mine who is truly a prophet, walking in ALL that I call him to be, or her to be, is this: humble before Me, seeking Me carefully in all of the strength of the power of which he walks in, listening to My word, harkening unto it, speaking carefully as I call him.

For beware of the prophet that goes out on his own accord to do his own thing. For, while great are the rewards of a prophet, great are the judgments of a prophet when they fall wrong to the errors of satan, to walk in pride, to walk in evil, to walk in sin, not to speak the word that I gave them, but to speak their own: then they stand in danger of a great wrath.

Hear Me, and here Me carefully. For there is a time coming very soon when the prophets work will rise stronger in the body of Christ, but so will satan as he raises up false prophets, from true prophets, who will walk in pride to seek their own glory. And I will drop those true prophets. I will not deal with them anymore.

And I will turn against them, and turn to a prophet that will humble himself, seek the word, and seek knowledge of the things of the Lord, and in true humble spirit, and in humility before Me, he will stay before Me in truth and honour.



1998 11 14.2

Beware of those who push ministries into the limelight. Sometimes it is of Me, saith the Lord, sometimes it is not!

You see, many times satan pushes a ministry into the limelight because he knows he can bring pride about in the leadership of that ministry. BEWARE OF THIS TACTIC!! For if satan pushes you into the limelight, you are soon going to fall, unless you repent, AND REPENT QUICK!

There is a time when I will allow the spotlight upon a ministry. But it is not often, and it is not frequent. I want My ministers to bow their heads, humble themselves, and obey the Spirit of the Living God.

No more is asked, and no more should be allowed. For any more brings about pride as you try to push ministries into becoming popular. And once they do that, it becomes their ministry, and not Mine, says the Lord.



1998 12 29.1

Lord Jesus, the power of your Spirit is above all else. There is nothing, nothing that can stand against You, but My people, says the Lord. My people have walked away from Me.

They have walked away from the Spirit of the Living God. They've turned to the works of the flesh. They've turned to pride. They've turned to the power of church wealth. They have turned to the things of the world, which comes from the pit of hell.

How many shall turn again, and come back to humility and obedience of the things of God? How many, says the Lord, how many?

I am seeking those who would humble themselves, obey the Spirit, and follow the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords.

There are so many that I could use, but so few who are willing to die, totally die to themselves, and live for Me.

Pride is a serious sin. It has destroyed more ministries than most people realize. And yet, I can protect them from pride, cloak them in humility. But they look around and they see sin, and they see the world, and they see the world wallowing in pride, AND THEY LONG TO BE LIKE IT!! And they turn from humility to pride. And while I may still use them, I have lost the power they could have walked in.

Why do you think so many ministries fall? It starts first with the love of money, and the love of pride. When those two things get into you, you have been destroyed from within. For satan has sought to destroy you that way. It is the easiest way to destroy a ministry.


Oh, turn from your ways, cry unto Me, and I will lift you up out of the miry clay, and I will set you on a path, cloaked in humility, straight and narrow, obedient unto the things that I have given to My church to do.


1999 01 10.2

How many, says the Lord, how many shall fall? Prophets upon prophets. Date setting upon date setting for My return.

I will return, says the Lord, when I choose to return.

How many date setters will fall when I don't come back this year, or next year? How many shall fall, says the Lord? How many shall fall?


1999 05 21.1

(This prophecy began as I was preparing supper. I could feel a very strong presence in my spirit of spiritual pain (not physical pain -- this I can't really explain beyond what I said), and a breaking heart. This continued until it was difficult to keep going. The Lord prompted me to get my micro tape recorder (most of the prophecies are recorded this way). And as the Lord gave me this prophecy, I cried heavily throughout.) 

Oh, the pain that I feel when My prophets seek not My will. Those who I have called so high, those who I have prepared, those who I have set forth, those who I have anointed—oh, the pain that I feel when those people turn their backs on Me and don't desire My will.

For I have called these anointed ones to their work. I have prepared them. I have taught them. I have been patient with them. And I loved to be patient with them—though the pain when they turn their backs.

This is to My prophets. I say unto you, PLEASE DO MY WILL!!! I call you! Be obedient! Don't listen to the words of analysts to the words of the Living God.

I call you to be obedient. It is not an easy life. The flesh has such as strong pull on you. But don't listen to the flesh, but listen to the Spirit of the Living God.

Don't listen to the flesh, but listen to the Spirit of the Living God. It can be such as easy life. But yet, because of the pull of the flesh, it's such as hard life.

Please turn, and live righteous before Me. LISTEN NOT TO ANYTHING ELSE but the Spirit of the Living God. He will guide you in all things.

For the times that are at hand now, that you are beginning to walk into, are such hard times. Hard in the flesh, and hard in the spirit. Hard in the flesh, because of the judgments coming upon this earth. But, hard in the spirit, because of the war in the spiritual realm that MUST BE FOUGHT!!!


1999 07 17.1

Beware of the ministry spirit of satan! It has attached itself to many: the ministry spirit of satan!

The Lord commands a Spirit of humility, not of building up of a ministry name!


1999 09 12.1

The Kingdom of God is righteousness and truth.

Resisting the will of God will not only hold back blessings in your life, but it will bring God to you in a manner which is not pleasant. For He will not be out to get you, but rather He will be out to turn you from your sin and disobedience.

Listen to My word, My people. Call not yourself to the ministry unless I call you. Don't turn left nor right and say, this is something I can do.

For I call people to the ministry and I train them, says the Lord. And when I call them, it shall be a righteous call. And many of those that I have called, resisted. And I have pleaded with them, and I have sought to turn them from their sin, and bring them to a place of obedience to the Spirit of the Living God.

Hear this, know it and understand it. The Spirit of the Living God is a very loving, caring Spirit to those who walk with Him. But judgment will come on those who refuse to walk in the ways of the Lord.

Judgment will come on those who call themselves to a ministry, and yet were not called. And judgment will come on those who were called, and did not go.

Here this word. Fear the Lord and understand His ways. Blessings and prosperity follow those who are obedient. They do not follow those who are disobedient.


2000 02 24.1

For thus says the Lord. Listen to the word. Be careful concerning the word. Do not assume you know what a prophet means, and do not question him.

For I, says the Lord, give the word. Listen carefully to what that word is. Obey carefully to what that word is. Know carefully, know what the word means will be revealed.

Know and understand that for when the times come and you see it fulfilled, you will see that it has been fulfilled. And you'll say, why that didn't happen the way I thought it would! That happened totally different than I thought it would, but it still fulfilled the prophecy, or the vision, or the dream.

So it is in the prophetic realm. These things are given so that you may know the seasons and the times that are at hand, and the seasons and the times that shall come to be.

But you live daily on the direction of My Spirit and you follow daily the direction of My Spirit. For when I chasten you to go do something—go do it! For I know what I am doing, says the Lord. When I hold you back from doing something with that quickening in your spirit—hold back, don't do it. I know what I need, and what you need, and what's best in all conditions, says the Lord.

So harken unto My voice when I deal with you. Harken unto My voice when I speak to you. Harken unto My voice as I prophesy, for My word shall not return void. And when I send out a word, it shall become indeed at true prophecy that must come to pass.

But many have been led down false paths by false prophets. But many more have been led down false paths by false interpretations of true prophets.

So heed this word. Be careful of what is to come. For there is a time and a season for all things to take place. When it comes, it shall come. And don't be fretting or worrying about when a given prophecy shall come to pass. I hold the times and seasons in My hand, says the Lord. And it shall come to pass when it's correct time and correct season—neither before nor after.

But daily serve Me, seeking the Word in My Bible, seeking those books which I had My people write so that you can study and show yourself approved unto the Lord. Study and know to follow these words, be careful of those that deceive, and be careful of those that are true, for even those that are true can lead you into deception if you will allow a false interpretation of a true word. So says the Lord God of Heaven!


2000 07 20.1

For the Glory of the Lord has gone forth to call those whom I wish to call into the offices of the apostle and the prophet. Therefore listen and obey to the voice of your God. I am going to call forth My people to this obedient church of the Most High. I am going to call forth My people to serve Me in the streets. I am going to call forth My people to serve Me inside the churches and inside the organizations that will not obey Me. For I am calling all of My people to be witnesses throughout the whole earth.


2000 07 27.1

For thus says the Lord, in many churches, in many places of worship, there are not mighty deeds going forth. These do not go forth because they have not met the standard of the Word of God for a church in this age.

That standard is to recognize and uphold the true apostle. That standard is to recognize and uphold the true apostle. That standard is to recognize and uphold the true apostle.

I have gathered My apostles together, says the Lord; and I have gather My prophets together, says the Lord. But now I recognize those that will heed the Word of God, those that will bow the knee to the King of Kings, those that will recognize the apostles, those that will recognize the prophets, those that will recognize the true pastors and not the false that have gone forth everywhere. Those are the ones in which the mighty works and the mighty deeds are done in.

For so many places: there are no mighty works, there are no mighty deeds, there are no mighty miracles, and no mighty healings; because My work has been stifled by the heart that is against the will of God. It is against the anointing of the apostle. It is against the anointing of the prophet. It is against the anointing of the pastor.

So heed Me now, says the Lord, those places that will put Me forth into first, will become My churches in this age to come of the very end times. They will be the light that will be heeded by the world; but will shine forth anyway. So says the Lord God of Heaven.


2000 08 08.1

For the Lord, in His mercy, seeks those who would serve Him in the ministry.

Those who seek to serve Him in the ministry, who He has called, He will humble and bless in the ministry as He chooses. Those who seek to serve Him in the ministry can walk in many blessings and many joys because of the mercies and blessings of the Lord.

Those who seek to build their ministry have already stepped, in their hearts, into the world of pride. And God in His mercy will seek their repentance, and seek to bring them into a place of repentance. God's mercy is longsuffering. It'll go on, and on, and on, and on.

But there will come a time when God's mercy shall come to an end, and God's judgment shall begin! For those who step into the world of pride and seek to build a big ministry so they can have a name for themselves, they shall be brought down, and they shall be destroyed to the very last person of their ministry, unless there is repentance!

I will not seek a church, says the Lord, filled with the sins of pride, and the love of money, and the love of power. I will not allow it, and I will not tolerate it!


2000 08 21.1

For there are those ministries who seek to be totally obedient to everything the Lord tells them to do, to be accurate in preaching the Word and delivering the gospel to an unsaved world.

But there are some of those, who, while they are obedient in action, their hearts are far from Me, building up their names to make a name for themselves. Becoming a great one is their desire.

Even though they are officially obedient in their actions, their hearts are seeking pride, seeking evil, seeking the name of themselves and not the name of the Lord.


2000 09 22.2

For thus says the Lord, I am the I am. Therefore when I say that there is going to come a time of judgment, it shall be. It shall be. It shall be.

Go now, therefore, and test this word. Look in My Bible at My Word of judgment. When I said it would occur, it happened! It always happened! Not always when you thought it might, but always when I thought it would.

Therefore, beware of those false prophets that are going around taking profit from the believers they have perverted. Looking unto themselves to make a profit from My people. They shall be judged more strongly than any other because they have known the truth, and willingly perverted it to there own selfish financial gain!

Now, therefore, listen to this word. Stand strong in the knowledge that your God has you protected from the evil one. He alone will be with you in all the times of trouble that are coming to this earth.

Look not a what is out there now. That is deceiving. But look at what I say shall come to be. That is exactly how it will happen: what I have said shall occur. Note it. Remember it. And go not out into the worldly things and seek after the financial gain.


2000 09 22.3

There are ministers who stand in the way of the evil one. They stand in the way of perpetrating, on the body of Christ, a deceit to bring them great financial gain.

It is their desire, not to reach out into the world with the gospel, but to seek financial gain, to line their pockets in the organized religion that they have taken on and chosen.

Yet in the churches there are those that are truly called of Me: called in humility, called in obedience, and called to the ministry. Many of those are heart-broken at what they see around them.

Those are My true ministers; they pray for the people, they seek the Lord's will, and they obey the Lord's will.

To see the difference between the true and the false you must learn to listen to the Holy Spirit which has been planted in every christian born again through the Blood of Jesus. If you will listen to that Spirit, the promptings of the Spirit, you will recognize the truth from the false.

Every christian needs to walk in this. The days of deceiving will become stronger. The days of deception will become stronger. For I said in My Word there will be many false prophets and false teachers. And it is coming to pass in this day.

Learn to pray and spend time in the Word of God, to spend time in prayer, and to spend time in fasting. And as you spend time you will recognize the power of the Holy Spirit in your life. And it is that that will guide and lead you throughout all things. But especially at this time He will guide and lead you to know the truth from the false. So says the Lord God of all heaven and earth!


2000 10 01.1

This is a warning to My ministers. They think that many people following them is the way to success. It is not. The way to success in My Kingdom is to be obedient to My word to you. If you will obey the direction I give you, then you are successful. If you are not obedient, then you are a failure! Even if you have thousands of people lining up to hear what you have to say!

Therefore, beware of the ways of this world. They think in high numbers. They think in high volume. But beware, for I think in terms of pure hearts!


2000 10 02.2

Thus says the Lord. I am not returning for those who think they have served the Lord in the most holy way because of their popularity. There is a belief among My ministers that until they are popular like unto Billy Graham they have not really achieved anything at all.

But I say unto you that until they have humbled themselves unto the will of God for their life, they have not gained anything with Me, says the Lord of all.


2000 12 13.3

For thus says the Lord, look not to the left nor to the right, but spend time on your knees before Me seeking direction from the Spirit that dwells within you—the Holy One of God. Listen to that Holy Spirit within you. Follow that Spirit, for He will lead you in truth.

Read the Word daily. Read and study the Word. Study the life of Jesus. Study the life in the New Testament. Study, study, study! Know the Bible. Know it is My Word. And know that it is there to guide and strengthen you and teach you.

There are many who have raised up ministries; built them on precept, and not on My Word. Many called, that were not called—called themselves, but I did not call them. Those ministries fall through in time.

But some of My ministries go through fire—like never before. What is of that ministry that is of God, shall come through in strength. As gold is refined in the fire so it is refined. Those ministries who have parts of them that are not right will get the fire burning those things out. And therefore, the impurities leave; and what is left is a strengthened ministry.

Those ministries who are not built of Me, when the fire comes it utterly destroys. Don't judge a ministry without My Word. Look to see what the fire does. For all My ministries will come under fire: and that that they built in the flesh shall be burned away; and that that they built on the Spirit of the Living God shall stand in power and strength.

Some ministries are going to be surprised, in this day and age as I go through and purify My ministries—how much of their own ministry was built on flesh!

But you see, this is good. As I burn the flesh out I'll be left with a ministry that stands on the healing and holy and mighty power of the Living God.

Those ministries are the ones that shall lead My church in the coming years! They are the ones that shall stand up strong, not an ounce of flesh left, but the power of the Holy Spirit shall flow!

So the flesh speaks in ministry, but it hinders the power of the Holy Spirit in their work. When the flesh is burned out, the power of the Holy Spirit can flow freely and thoroughly and fully!


2001 01 13.2

For thus saith the Lord, watch ministries that raise themselves up in the pride of this world. There are two types of such ministries: those that serve Me, but have gone after the flesh and want to raise up their name; and those that serve satan who naturally flow into the pride of the world.

Both shall be equally judged, saith the Lord, both shall be equally judged! For I am bringing about a judgment on ministries. In the coming years you shall see this significantly. You shall see the hand of God against ministers that have turned against Me, and ministries which are wolves in sheep’s clothing, which are designed specifically by satan to deceive the world.

I shall bring My hand against them. And yet they shall rise up in greater numbers than before. They shall flourish for a time, and then I shall judge them for their sin.

For thus saith the Lord, never again will I have My church so deceived as its been in the past. For I shall bring a quickening of My Spirit to My people. If they will heed this Spirit, they will know the Spirit of God speaks to certain people. And they will know that certain things are not of the Kingdom of God––but are not of the Kingdom in any way, but are not of anything to do with the Kingdom, but are not anything whatsoever to do with God. But while they use the name of Jesus, while they use the name of God, while they rise up in great religious ways; they are of satan, and they are born of him.

For thus saith the Lord, great is My Kingdom, and I shall begin to show this into My people so that they will know who is of Me and who is not. And as I teach them this––to listen to the Holy Spirit and receive this discerning of spirits––they will rise up and know who to follow and who not to, who to listen to and who not to.

For My Word is going forth and we are in the preparation for the very, very last days. So says the Lord God.


2001 02 03.1

For thus says the Lord, hear the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. Know My people are called to serve Me, to witness to a dead world, a dead world dead to the things of the Lord, dead to the things of heaven––they are alive only unto filth and sin (and it’s not an alive, and it’s a death to themselves, but they think it’s alive––they look upon such things as good––they do not understand).

You are My light to the world. Stand strong in this light; stand strong. Be the light I have called you to be. Wherever you are, and wherever I send you, be a light unto the world, for so I have called everyone of My people.

Now there are some I have called to much higher callings. Humble yourselves. Do not seek to raise up your ministry. For the moment you seek to raise up your ministry, you have sought sin and pride.

Seek to raise up the Name of Jesus. Seek to put forth the work of the Lord. Seek what I would have you do. All those that are called into My work, seek what I would have you to do––and do it!

If I want it to be raised up, I will raise it up. If I want it put down, I will put it down. Those who stand up in pride will be put down. Those ministries that have raised up great ministries––built their name up and not Mine, saith the Lord––they shall be put down.

When the crash comes––and it shall come, and it shall come soon, and it shall come very soon––and when it comes, I will crash many ministries at that time. For you see they will have raised themselves up on a tidal wave of prosperity of the world, and when that prosperity falls, they will fall with it. For their foundation is built on the love of money.

But those ministries that are built on the foundation of the Lord Jesus Christ, they shall rise up and continue, for they have been built on a very solid Rock, says the Lord.


2001 03 28.2

For thus saith the Lord. There are many prophets and there are many apostles which I am raising up in this day and in this age. For My people need to be led by those who I appoint and anoint to lead them.

But beware and be forewarned many are the false prophets and many are the false apostles. For they rise up by great number. You shall know them by their fruits. Look unto them and seek their fruits to see what they are. Do not run after them until you have sought what they are like.

Those of My people are of humble attitude––they seek not money, they seek not the love of this earth, they seek not importance of this earth, they seek not to be known, they seek not to be made a big name for themselves, they seek not a following.

But the earth, and those of the earth seek all these things. Remember there are three basic types of false prophets and of false apostles. Number one are those who are led by satan. They are most deceptive and most destructive, for they really use the terminology of the church, but the heart is filled with evil. Then there are those, in the pride of trying to be important, have called themselves to a ministry which I did not call them too. This is evil, and I tell you it is sin! Then there are those who I have called who seek not My will but their own and have gone astray after their own minds.

All these will yield the fruits of the earth. They seek the pride, and the money, and the name, and the glory. They seek to raise themselves up and be great and be looked up to; but they are not of Me, for they have gone after the things of the earth, and I will have none of it, saith the Lord.


2001 04 09.2

For thus says the Lord. Hear the word, understand the word. Carefully research any ministry. Those sent to support one sector or another of some church are being deceived or are deceiving. Those sent to support the Word of God wherever they find it––they are of Me, and I of them.


2001 06 09.1

There is coming a day when I, saith the Lord, when I shall come down hard on the false ministries that have perverted the gospel and have raised up a false standard claiming to be of Me when they are not.

There is coming a day that I shall crush such ministries. It shall shake many christians to see who will crash and who will not. It shall shake many. For you see there are many deceptive spirits out there coming from the pit of hell that are behind many ministries, that have infiltrated many ministries, and have perverted the Word of the Lord.

Coming now, very soon, you will see the judgment of God on such work. So says the Lord!


2002 04 13.1

There are three kinds of ministers that are serving Me:

1. Those that delve deeply into the things of God.

2. Those that delve deeply into the things of God and follow Him.

3. Those that delve deeply into the things of God and build their own name and ministry.

Only the second type is doing the will of God properly. Those that delve deeply in prayer and fasting and follow with the work will be blessed by the Lord God in this time of trial to come. Those that fit into 1 or 3 do not receive the blessings like unto the second kind.


2002 06 24.2

There shall be some of My people who will turn away after the false doctrines of the world. They shall seek money, they shall seek the pride of leadership, and they shall seek the monetary ways of the world by leading their followers to give, give, give. From the lusts of these leader’s hearts they shall beg money in order to build their ministries with their name.


2002 07 21.1

Thus says the Lord. There are many ministries which preach money, money, money. They preach how to be rich. They preach how to make Me, says the Lord, bless them and make them rich. But I say, blessed are the poor in spirit.

These people who are in love with money, and preach the love of money, I say to them: you shall fall. When the crash, which has begun, has fully finished I will bring you down and destroy your ministries. For such deceit I will not have in My Body. The love of money is a root of all evil, and therefore, I must destroy it within My Body.

For the church must walk righteously before Me and I must burn out all sin which is found therein, and bring it to a place of purity, and to a place of holiness, and to a place of true repentance and obedience to the Spirit of God. So says the Lord God.
