Many people are receiving breakthroughs and healing through social media

TTHE GAME HAS CHANGED
HE birth of social media has played a role in Christianity and in this instance, prophetic ministry. In Daniel 12:4, the increase of knowledge is affirmed, “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Print media has played a vital role in spreading the word of God and Messiah. In a nutshell, the role print media played in printing and distributing the Bible to all corners of the earth is by far successful.
Prophetic ministry has always been a one on one session where a prophet speaks and the audience receives. With the introduction of social media, cellphones and televangelism ministry, the game has changed. Distance is no longer a barrier as many people are receiving breakthroughs and healing through these mediums.
REACHING THE WORLD
In Mark 16:15 Jesus Christ said, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” The digital era is playing an important role in making this statement more effective as the word of God can reach people all over the world.
Ministies of televangelism, radio, print and social media are playing an important role in the growth of Christianity. For example, Bishop TD Jakes, Reynard Bonke and others have used these mediums for a long time and this gave birth to the rise of a new era of prophetic ministries, which are now in every space of media.
2 Timothy 2: 15 indicates the importance of studying and handling the word of truth.
Technology has also played a role in creating mediocrity around prophetic ministries, with as some people on social media have become false prophets, luring people and robbing them of their money in the name of prophetic ministry. According to John 10:10, the work of the devil is to kill, rob and destroy. So it’s important that you become rooted in the word of God.
