Move! - - CONTENTS - By Prophet Neo Mo­taung

Prophet Neo Mo­taung is the founder of Crys­tal House of the Prophets Church in Hei­del­berg, Joburg. He is also a ra­dio pre­sen­ter at Sed­ibeng FM and mo­ti­va­tional speaker, MC and life coach.

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.

FALSE PROPHETS

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.
