When The prophet Speaks . . .

See also

The OT Prophets are an amazing group of God’s most faithful servants. They were commissioned because the ‘establishment’ (pseudo leaders – corrupt priests) had utterly failed. Fast forward to today. The LORD has some men today who while they are not Prophets in the technical sense of that office, they never-the-less function in a similar manner. They deliver the Truth. They speak Truth to Power, the Truth about the church, the culture, and where things are headed. The response to the message provided by both Old & New Testament men who function in this role is remarkably similar. The following list is just a partial description of that response.

People roll their eyes

People ignore them

People listen and ‘pity those poor souls’ – so negative

People smile and nod agreement while at the same time denying the reality of the message

People get down right angry and some even hostile with a venom and rage

People sometimes tell the Prophet to ‘take a hike’

People organize entire movements to eliminate all Prophets (Boards & Committees)

People (denominational structures) ignore the message with impunity while decline rages on

People express the Truth of Jeremiah 2:11-13 - - -

Has a nation changed its gods, even though they are no gods? But my people have changed their glory for that which does not profit. Be appalled, O heavens, at this; be shocked, be utterly desolate, declares the LORD, for my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water.

We are there church in America. Pray for Confession, Repentance, Reformation & Renewal!
