One of the gifts given by Jesus to the Church for the perfecting of the saints is that of a PROPHET. So what exactly is the work of a prophet and why do i really need one?
Hosea 12:13 And by a prophet the Lord brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved.
Beloved, the eleventh chapter of the book of Hebrews listed out the names of cloud of witnesses, whose faith believers of today and you in particular should follow, in other to experience God”s unusual benevolence they enjoyed on this side of heaven when they were here and now at eternity, living with God.
Hebrews 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
THE REASON WHY YOU SHOULD DO THIS IS FOR YOU ALSO TO BENEFIT THE UNEQUAL, INDESCRIBABLE BENEVOLENCE AND PROVIDENCE OF UNCHANGING GOD, YOUR LOVING FATHER.
Think of Abraham thar was richly blessed while on earth.
Gen 24:34 — Gen 24:35 And he said, I am Abraham’s servant. And the Lord hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses. And also richly blessed at eternity, having estate named after him, called Abraham’s bosom, a place or haven of everlasting comfort. Luke 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; Luke 16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
This is exactly God’s good thoughts towards every believer, especially you.
. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
GOD WANTS YOU TO BE FULFILLED ON THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN.
You shall be fulfilled in Jesus name.
. Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
. How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
Also at eternity, He has prepared a beautiful city where you shall live with Him for ever. It shall be so for you in Jesus name.
Hebrews 11:14-16. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. Rev 21:3 — Rev 21:4
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
HOWEVER, FOR THESE ENVIABLE AND DESIRABLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS TO BE REALIZED, YOU NEED A GOD ORDAINED PROPHET.
A prophet who is not only focused on your making it on earth but also living with God for all eternity.
PAUSE AND BE VERY SINCERE TO YOURSELF. DOES YOUR PRESENT PASTOR DRIVEN FOR BOTH YOUR EARTHLY AND ETERNAL WELL-BEING?
Hosea 12:13 And by a prophet the Lord brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved.
IS YOUR PRESENT PASTOR, TEACHING YOU, HOW TO ENTER THE STRAIT GATE?
HOW TO WORK ON THE WAY OF HOLINESS?
GOD’S STANDARD ON MARRIAGE, ONE MAN , ONE WOMAN, NO DIVORCE AND REMARRIAGE?
NOT LOVING THE WORLD ?
NOT GIVEN BRIBE TO GET BUSINESS?
DOING YOUR RESTITUTION?
RESTORING ALL STOLEN OR ACQUISITIONS WRONGLY ACQUIRED?
HAVING YOUR NAME IN THE BOOK OF LIFE AND NOT ALLOWING SIN TO REMOVE IT?
Is your pastor teaching you all of these? If your answer is affirmative yes, it is well. But if no, that pastor and all his congregation might make it here, but their eternity is doomed. See what the Bible says.
Rev 22:18 — Rev 22:19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
See the kind of prophet you need.
1 Samuel 12:23. Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way: Act 20:20 — Act 20:21
And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house, Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
Acts 20:27 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
You must not gain the world and loose your precious soul. Your soul shall not be lost in Jesus name.
Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
IF YOU ARE FULFILLED AND SPEND ONE THOUSAND YEARS ON EARTH. IF IT IS POSSIBLE. IT IS INFINITESIMAL TO TRILLION OF YEARS , YOU SHALL SPEND IN ETERNITY.
You are a wise person. Do not jeopardize your eternal well being with temporal ephemeral.
THE BULK STOP WITH YOU. REACH OUT NOW TO A PASTOR AND A CHURCH, WHERE YOUR EARTHLY AND ETERNAL WELL-BEING SHALL BE TAKEN CARE OF.
May the Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
Deuteronomy 32:29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end
Proverbs 19:20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
Jesus Christ our Lord apart from being our Saviour and Redeemer. He is The Prophet of God.
Luke 13:33: Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem. Luke 24:19: And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:
He alone is the Prophet all believers of all ages and you in particular, must follow., to avoid walking in darkness.
John 8:12: ¶Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 12:46: I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
He alone is the Prophet you can follow to attain both desirable and rewardable earthly and eternal greatness. You shall be great in Jesus name.
. He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.
There are 2 things you can do to attain this –
1. HEED HIS PASSIONATE WARNING.
. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.
2. OBEY HIM IN ALL THINGS AS COMMANDED BY GOD, YOUR LOVING FATHER.
. I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
: ¶This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.
ANY PROFESSING BELIEVERS WHO FAIL TO DO THIS SHALL END UP WITH PAINFUL AND SHAMEFUL ETERNITY.
This shall never be your portion in Jesus name.
Luke 6:46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Mat 7:21 — Mat 7:23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
On this side of heaven, Jesus is very kind to sinners , doing everything for them to be saved.
The reverse is the case at eternity. I earnestly pray for you to heed His warning and obey Him in all things as commanded by your loving Father in heaven., so that eternity for you shall be blissful. It shall be so in Jesus name. Do not allow His words to judge you at eternity.
Jn 12:46 — Jn 12:48 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
SINNERS INSIDE OR OUTSIDE THE CHURCH THAT MEETS WITH JESUS AT ETERNITY SHALL BE SUPRISED.
Please obey Him in all things today and through His inexhaustible benevolence attain your desired earthly and eternal well-being. So shall it be in Jesus name.
JESUS CHRIST THE PROPHET BELIEVERS OF ALL AGES AND YOU IN PARTICULAR MUST OBEY IN ALL THINGS, TO ACCOMPLISH EARTHLY AND ETERNAL FULFILLMENTS.
I thank God for you because you are aware of the reality of this season in the timetable of God. The end time is here and rapture is dawning. Keep on in your earnest preparation. It shall not elude you in Jesus name.
IT IS VERY EASY TO DIFFERENTIATE SINCERE BELIEVERS LIKE YOU AND CARE FREE BELIEVERS.
The latter prefers merchandise motivational ministers, who will teach them fables to attain earthly desires at whatever cost. See how the Bible describes them.
. The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12
. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Peter 2:1-3. But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. 2 Timothy 4:3-4. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
I am persuaded that this is not your true picture. But then pause and sincerely examine yourself, do you have such inclination? If the answer is affirmative no. Fine. But if it is yes, do something drastic, eternity might be closer than you think. The rapture can happen anytime from now. For believers that shall be part of the dawning rapture, see how the Bible describes them. This shall be your portion in Jesus name.
1. You must be under a prophet who is preparing people ready for the Lord.
. And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
2. You must receive, embrace an experiential biblical salvation and living a lifestyle of holiness.
. And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways; To give knowledge of salvation unto his people. by the remission of their sins, Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the day spring from on high hath visited us, To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace
3. Your prophet must be focused on both your earthly and eternal well-being. Teaching you totality of God’s eternal words.
Acts 15:32. And Judas and Silas, being prophets also themselves, exhorted the brethren with many words, and confirmed them. Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
Receive grace to do all these and be prepared for the dawning rapture in Jesus name.
See you at the top in Jesus name.
