Then Jeremiah the prophet said to them, “I have heard. Indeed, I will pray to the Lord your God according to your words, and it shall be, that whatever the Lord answers you, I will declare it to you. I will keep nothing back from you.”
However I have sent to you all My servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, “Oh, do not do this abominable thing that I hate!”
We serve a living God who speaks, He speaks to His children through His word, dreams, visions, prophets and to His chosen ones face to face (Moses). The above scripture portion tells us that Jeremiah the prophet is standing between God and man to pray and reveal what God has revealed to him about others.
Prayer is man speaking to God and prophecy is God speaking to man. In the old covenant God spoke to His children through prophets and His chosen ones, in the new covenant God speaks to us through His Son Jesus (Hebrews 1:1-3).
Jesus said about John the Baptist Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he (Matthew 11:11). The ministry of John the Baptist was for a short period only, he prepared the way for Jesus, baptized Jesus, he tried correcting Herod and he landed up in the prison and ended up being beheaded and his ministry ended. John the Baptists ministry was for a limited time, but he is considered to be the greatest among all prophets by Jesus. No matter how small you or your ministry is, it matters to God.
Many in the body of Christ get offended with the very mention of the word prophet, because they have been let down by them with wrong and false prophecies. The word of God is very very clear about prophecies, it says in 2 Chronicles 20:20 Believe in the Lord your God and you shall be established, believe in His prophets and you shall prosper. The reason for many to get offended is that they don’t believe and get established in God and in His word, but they rely heavily and run after men and women of God for prophecies, they rely only on the man of God and his prophecy, not on God and His word and when it doesn’t work for them they get offended with God, the prophet and every other prophet who did them no harm. The secret not to get offended is to rely on God and be established in Him and in His word and then God will speak to us and then a prophet will confirm the prophecy. There are chances that a prophet may make a mistake, because they are active prophets and retired prophets and if we end up with a retired prophet his prophecy may not work for us (1 king chapter 13).
John the Baptist was considered to be the greatest among all the prophets, but at a certain given point of time even he made some mistakes. John the Baptist baptized Jesus and at the time of baptism, he heard the voice of God from heaven saying ” This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased ” (Matthew 3:17), but after sometime he doubted all these and sent his disciples to Jesus and asked Him ” are You the coming one, or do we look for another? ” (Matthew 11:2-5).
God uses His prophets to encourage and even correct His children. God asked Samuel to annoint Saul and David as king of Israel, He tried correcting Saul through Samuel, but he didn’t listen in the end, he lost his kingdom and his life. David a man after God’s own heart committed adultery and planned for murder, God didn’t want him to stay in that condition, so He sent Nathan to correct David (2 Samuel 12:7-14). Nathan prophesied that the child would die and he died, David repented and came back to God and was restored. God gave David another son Solomon who was the wisest and richest king on the face of this earth. David had a desire to build a house for the Lord, God sent the same prophet Nathan to him and asked him not to build a house for Him, because there was too much blood shed on his hands and his son Solomon would build a temple for Him (1 Chronicles 17). David listened to the word of God through the prophet and his throne was established forever.
Only a believer can identify and understand another believer. Only a pastor and a prophet can identify and understand another pastor and prophet. Believe in God, be established in Him and His word and God will speak to you (prophecy) and He will lead you to the right prophet for the confirmation of the prophecy spoken to you over your life (without speaking to you about you, God will not speak to others about you, first God will speak to you and then He will only allow a prophet to confirm what He has spoken to you).
The reason why many don’t prosper in their lives is, because they don’t love, value, respect and honor the anointing and the anointed. They know God, they read the Bible, they go to church and Bible study regularly, they fast, pray and give to God, but they work for the devil they don’t allow and leave men and women of God to do their God given job and work in peace. They go to church, go online only to target, criticize and gossip about men and women of God and make pieces of them, their only job on the earth is to speak bad and gossip about them (God deal with them, save them and bless them). The Bible says ” Do not touch My anointed and do them no harm “. The secret to prosper in every area of our life is to know, love, follow God and His word and love, respect and honor His prophets and His chosen ones.
The reason for David’s success and prosperity was that he loved God and His anointed prophets. David didn’t kill Saul even though he had many chances to kill him, because he knew that Saul was anointed by God. David loved, respected and honored God’s anointed prophets Samuel and Nathan. Saul didn’t know the value of the anointing and the anointed when Samuel the prophet went to correct him, Saul tore the edge of his robe (1 Samuel 15:26, 27) and his kingdom was shred to pieces and in the end he ended up taking his own life with his own hands.
Beloved know and value the anointing and love, respect and honor the men and women of God whom God has placed over you in your life and then you will prosper in every area of your life.
Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.”
2 Chronicles 20:20
When they went from one nation to another, From one kingdom to another people,
He permitted no one to do them wrong;
Yes, He rebuked kings for their sakes,
Saying, “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.”
And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written:
“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!”
Heavenly Father thank You for the word, thank You for the good men and women of God, leaders, pastors and prophets that You have placed over us in our lives. Lord give us the grace to never touch the anointed, but to always love, respect and honor them. Lord we uphold every man and women of God who is working in Your vineyard, guide, guard, protect and provide for them and continue to use them mightily for the expansion of Your kingdom in Jesus name we ask and pray.
Amen and Amen
God loves you
