Unless what they have "received" actually isn't from God but was hard earned by them via being manipulated and so they now pay it forward by manipulating others. I know that God's power comes with His word, so when there is life and something actually happens to the person, then God has definitely spoken to them. People can create an emotional brouhaha, but we can never duplicate God's resurrection power. Never ever. Jesus alone has the words of eternal life. God's Word is life to us, His sheep hear His voice, and when He truly does speak, lives are changed. He could speak to the centurion's servant from far away, and that servant got healed. Bam. Done. We can certainly speak into another's lives and give encouragement and such. But, to create life? God alone has the power to bring that to us. He alone reserves the right. Jesus can heal me with one word. So when I look for God to speak to me, I pass by the babbling and yammering and chatter and noise, because my spirit knows who it's looking for and will not rest until it finds its Maker. It's honestly that simple, and difficult, for me.
