1 Corinthians 14:32 The spirits of prophets are subject to the control of prophets.

But in 1 Samuel 19:20-23 all the men Saul sent including Saul couldn't help but prophesy, doesn't this contradict the fact that the spirit of prophets are subject to them and the fact that self control is a fruit of the Spirit

1 Samuel 19:20-23 so he sent men to capture him. But when they saw a group of prophets prophesying, with Samuel standing there as their leader, the Spirit of God came on Saul’s men, and they also prophesied. 21 Saul was told about it, and he sent more men, and they prophesied too. Saul sent men a third time, and they also prophesied. 22 Finally, he himself left for Ramah and went to the great cistern at Seku. And he asked, “Where are Samuel and David?” “Over in Naioth at Ramah,” they said. 23 So Saul went to Naioth at Ramah. But the Spirit of God came even on him, and he walked along prophesying
