Read: Exodus 3:1-12
MEMORISE: I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him (Deuteronomy 18:18).
Prophets are people with extra eyes, ears and spirit. They see what others do not see and hear what others do not hear. They are special class of people, who receive from God of heaven and declare the same to the people. They connect heavens with earth by bringing the Word of God to the people on earth. God calls and regards prophets as His spokesmen.
One major role of a prophet is to cry against injustice and direct people back to God. Prophets are good leaders, like Moses and Samuel. Prophets are social restorers, like Elijah and Nathan. Prophets are solutions carriers, like Elisha and Daniel. Many are called as prophets and they are yet to perform up to expectations.
Prophets do not see evils only, but solutions to the calamities. Prophets are sources of inspirations to the societies. Are you called and gifted as prophets? It is high time you renewed your source of hearing from God. The world is in confusion already, and there is no constitution of any nation that can give solutions to it. We need genuine prophets, like Moses, to lead us out of the chaos facing the church today.
Thus says the Lord God of host”, is the power of the prophets. It is the authority behind prophesies. Moses said it, Pharaoh proved stubborn and was destroyed. Samuel said it, disobedient Saul was rejected and David was enthroned. Elijah said it, wicked Ahab and demonic Jezebel paid for it. What is in your mouth to say to people, family, Church, city, state and nation around you? We are sons of the prophets says Act 3:25. Go and renew your calling, refine your gift and cleanse your mouth from impurities, like Isaiah now. You will receive a new touch, like Jeremiah and Isaiah (Isa. 6:1-7; Jer. 1:1-10).
1. God, send us prophets as of old after Your hearts.
2. God, help our prophets to speak Your Word and not their own minds.
3. Father, let our leaders listen to the true prophetic words from Your prophets.
