Another reason that prophets become cynics is due to frustration. Too often they see/feel/hear what the Father is saying and asking to happen, but those for whom the message is given either ignore it, reject it, or destroy it. When the prophet walks through enough of these kinds of scenarios they face a very real danger of becoming cynics who simply don't trust (or like) people. Of course, the response the Father usually calls for is that the prophet stand in the gap and continue to love and pray for those same people. The real issue isn't, in the end, the fulfillment of prophecy, but the gracious journey of growth that both failures and successes bring about. God loves to see his children mature in the Spirit, more than he loves wowing them with prophecy. Don't get me wrong in that last statement though: God clearly enjoys declaring the future and what is hidden. I really like that about Him.

cheers,
