Eddie uses the first Scriptures to try and say that it is the role of Scripture, not prophecy to reproof, correct, and train. See it says it right there! There is one little problem with that line of thinking. Go back and read the key Scriptures today and you will see that this woman prophesies Scripture! If the call on the church to repent is Scriptural from Chronicles and throughout the entire Bible! So we would all agree that all Scripture is profitable for teaching, reproof, correction and instruction. That is the entire point! There is a pretty good chance that God was trying to instruct you and that congregation and reprove them for playing Pentecostal Church but with hearts apart from Him. You however rebuked the Word of the Lord as being legalistic and then referred to a Scripture that proves you are wrong. Nicely done.
The real bible mangling however he reserved for the second Scripture here. This section of scripture is about explaining the differences between prophecy and tongues as gifts of the Holy Spirit. Hyatt tries to leverage it to explain the differences between prophecy and the word of God and therein lies his problem. Because Eddie Hyatt ascribes to the false signs and lying wonders delusion within the church today he does not understand that there is no difference between the Word of God and prophecy. Before people go getting twisted take some time and reason this out using the Bible. What was prophecy throughout the Old Testament used for? Without a written Bible for everyone, God spoke to His people through the prophets. They conveyed the Word of God. Today we have the canon of Scripture, which is the final revealed will of God. It is the Word of God, as was what the true prophets said. There is no difference because they both come from God. Prophecy today however has warped what God intended and what we are left with is emotional clairvoyance and psychic parlor tricks. Nonetheless, Eddie tries to teach the woman what he clearly does not understand. He makes two inaccurate points:
1. That it is not the role of prophecy to rebuke, correct, or reprove.
2. That the proper role of prophecy is to edify, exhort, and comfort -- or as Eddie put it -- to build up, stir up, and cheer up.
Now he bases the first statement on the Second Timothy verses, which we have already shown he does not understand. Is the argument Eddie Hyatt seriously making that all prophecy must be positive? It must always cheer people up? Do you think that Nineveh was cheered up by Jonah's prophecy? No! They ran and placed sackcloth and ashes on themselves! Here is the deeper teaching though. In the end was Nineveh edified because of this seemingly harsh prophecy? God relented from destroying them so I am going to say a resounding yes! The Word of God is not supposed to be always puppies and pancakes beloved. Sometimes He has a hard Word for us. Sometimes we need to repent. I would wager the vast amount of time prophecy was brought forth in the Bible it was done so to straighten out the people of God. To bring them back to God. To have them move away from their sin. The Eddie Hyatt's of the world think prophecy is something to confirm all of the ungodly and unbiblical behaviors they teach and endorse. The concept that they might be mistaken never enters their mind. This woman's prophecy must be wrong and not from God because it did not agree with them and tell them what they wanted to hear. I am reminded of two Scriptures here to highlight this delusion:
but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! -- Matthew 6: 23 (ESV)
But Jehoshaphat said, "Is there not here another prophet of the Lord of whom we may inquire?" And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, "There is yet one man by whom we may inquire of the Lord, Micaiah the son of Imlah, but I hate him, for he never prophesies good concerning me, but evil." And Jehoshaphat said, "Let not the king say so." -- 1Kings 22: 7-8 (ESV)
The fist Scripture is Jesus teaching us wisely that if we have convinced ourselves that our darkness is light, how deep is the darkness we are in! If you think that the spirit of closeness and acceptance is light when it really is counterfeit, you may not be willing to accept a corrective prophecy, even one taken directly from the Word of God itself. The second set is a great story where evil King Ahab was trying to convince King Jehoshaphat to go out to war against Ramoth-gilead. Jehoshaphat wanted a word from the Lord first so Ahab brought out his own prophets who always told him what he wanted to hear but Jehoshaphat was unconvinced. Notice how he refers to the real prophet, Micaiah. I hate him for he never prophesies good concerning me. Wow. If that does not describe how Eddie Hyatt approaches prophesy nothing does. Beloved the issue is not whether or not the prophecy is nice or not. It only matters if it is truly from God or not. Micaiah would prophesy Ahab's death if he went into this battle and Ahab ignored him. He would die exactly how Micaiah prophesied because his was the Word of the Lord.
