There are some things about men operating under the anointing of the Holy Ghost that may never be understood. Under the unction, they could say or do things that people may think are not okay, however, that doesn't mean they are wrong.

Samson, the anointed deliverer of Israel, got up one day and told his father that he wanted to marry a Philistine woman. His parents were outraged and asked if he couldn't find a woman in all of Israel to marry, but the Bible says that his parents were unaware that the Spirit of God was the one leading him to do it. (Judges 14:2-4)

A certain prophet under the unction of the Spirit of God, approached a man and asked the man to strike him (the prophet).The man refused to do it thinking it was outrageous. The prophet pronounced death on him instantly and he was killed (1 Kings 20:35-36).

Isaiah, the prophet under the instruction of the Spirit of God, walked naked and barefooted for three years! (Isaiah 20:2-3).

Hosea the prophet was instructed by God to marry a practicing prostitute. Who would often leave her husband and continue her acts after being married! (Hosea 1:2).

Imagine what people would say, if men of God did things like this today. Some may say, "Well that's the Old testament" but let's have a look at the New Testament.

Jesus called Herod the King an animal (Luke 13:32), and bluntly told the Pharisees that they were children of the devil (John 8:44). In the book of John 2:15, He was physically violent at one point, beating up some grown men with whips and driving them out of the temple.

Peter, the Apostle, pronounced death on a man and his wife and they were both killed, simply because they didn't redeem the full pledge they made in Church! (Acts 5:1-10).

Paul, the Apostle, cursed a man in Paphos and he went instantly blind simply because the man interrupted him while he was preaching! (Acts 13:8-11)

Imagine what people would say, if men of God said or did some of these things today.

Remember, we are in the same dispensation as Peter and Paul, so we should not simply say that "Things have changed today". The same Holy Spirit they received then, is the One we received. This dispensation will end at the rapture of the Church.

Some of these things are inexplicable, and can never be justified (according to the moral standards of men). God is God nonetheless. What makes one a Christian, is that he believes certain things, even though they are inexplicable. Perfect examples are; the birth of Jesus by a virgin and His resurrection. Though they are logically impossible, we believe them, simply because the Bible says so.

If you hear a man of God say or do something that you consider to be out of line, that doesn't necessarily mean he was wrong, it’s possible that God led him. This is not an excuse for people to do whatever they like and claim that God led them. Most of these things only happened once, and the results always brought glory to God, and an increase in the Kingdom of God.

The important thing to note here is, to not be in a hurry to attack or criticize a man of God, you never know what is the driving force behind the decision made or action taken.

“So don’t get ahead of the Master and JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS WITH YOUR JUDGEMENTS before all the evidence is in. When he comes, he will bring out in the open and place in evidence all kinds of things we never even dreamed of—inner motives and purposes and prayers. Only then will any one of us get to hear the “Well done!” from God."
