“Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet"

Isaiah 58:1

Personal Biography:

Foto_DolfWhen he was five years of age he was already aware of the presence of God in his life. His parents came to Jesus when he was nine. God kept him through His grace, blessed him, trained him and educated him with great love, and he developed in serving the Lord. Yet there can be no increase of maturity in following Jesus without testing and trials. In the beginning of 1991 he even lost his focus on everything except Jesus. Nevertheless, God restored and renewed him, and from 1994 until 1998 God moved him into a new season of church leadership and into a development of the prophetic and apostolic ministry. At the beginning of 1998 he started travelling as a prophet.

He believes that God is restoring the prophetic ministry to the level He wants it to be in His Kingdom. The text above Isaiah 58:1 speaks of lifting your voice like a trumpet. It speaks of a shofar, a prophetic voice and it inspires him to bring a prophetic word from the heart of God, which will encourage you to go for change in your personal life, for a change in the church and in your ideas about church.

Dolf is married with Firdaus. They have two children, both married, six grandchildren and they all live in Vlissingen in The Netherlands.

Prophets:

Prophets tear down inner obstacles and outer systems that stop people from growing in the understanding of who Jesus is. They destroy specific mindsets and man-made traditions that stop people from becoming more mature and freer. Due to this ability, prophets are often unwelcome in the prevailing Christian culture. They do not preach a feel good, personally enriching and self-centered gospel. They are often a threat to all systems that are not really Kingdom focused and Christ centered.

They express grace and a broken heart and are not motivated by legalism and a judgmental attitude. Prophets live in, and minister from, the realities of the New Covenant. Prophets build from a platform of internal ethics and accuracy in their lives; not from the exercise of their gift. Building relationship has a high priority for them.

Prophets are by nature primarily builders, not servants of 'bless me clubs'. They're concerned with strategic and long-term change. Prophets are sent to speak truth from their hearts and not in the first place to 'bless' people by telling them how wonderful they are; how rich they're going to be; and how they're going to change the world. Godly understanding, plus conformity to the understanding is the essence of being prophetic.
