Sometimes boggles the thought for me that I used pass the snowy streets of Michigan To talk to people on prophets. Var I crazy? Am I still crazy? Day day out ... I knocked of someone door or stopped them on the streets in order to say something like, ”do you want hear a message of Jesus Christ"? Om against all odds would say "yes” ... I started tell us about prophets.
”Wait!" sa people ”you said that you would share one message of Christ. " "I would. Would any of us ever know about Christ without to prophets had first told you about him for US? ' ”I do not want hear something about prophets” they would say. ”There are none more prophets A.D. We do not need longer prophets since Christ left Bible and the Holy Spirit to us. ”
While the door was being slapped again would I ask to get share a scripture ur Bible.
The person who answers before listening, is foolish and shameful.(Proverbs 18:13)
The scripture could get hearts soften and we would gain further one few minutes to share with you that so many of us has traveled Long Range worldwide to share.
The message is; There is living prophets again. These prophets has arrived in these last days to testify of Jesus Christ and to determine each statement about who he is. after nearly 1700 years of confusion and darkness, is de living prophets as exposed and restored true knowledge if the Lord Jesus Christ back to earth. Because of these prophets so we now know who we worship and how vi to worship him. Without prophets so should we referred to our own philosophical speculation God.
Is he a man or a God?
Does he have a body fair nuor he was a Spiritessence?
Is he three beings or something else?
KRav Baptism for salvation or is it subordinate? If it is secondary … why we do the. Om the required so as it is John 3: 3-5 it is action. Does that mean that other measures are also required for our salvation? Do we need repent for salvation or is an oral Creed enough?
Vi could continue several days …
But seriously … God has not always functioned through prophets?
"Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets." (Amos 3: 7)
Om that Writing is true, why would anyone in this world not with excitement and curiosity welcome the idea of a to ensure Prophet? Could it be true? Available ever en time in the history of this world where a prophet would better required CHANGE in our days?
Throughout History God has always sent prophets for to "restore” en knowledge of the gospel back to earth. Amos also said that
”11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the word of the LORD.
12 They shall wander from sea to sea and run to and fro, from north to east to search for word of the LORD, but they shall not find it. ". (Amos 8: 11-12)
Du can search the whole earth after The gospel of God and no matter how very searching ... If no prophet on the earth, then du not find it. No one has ever only "figured out " God's will without first was to them through prophets.
Så There is a basic fact. You can not receive Christ without accept prophets. It is a logic impossibility. Vi would have no idea Who Christ is without teachings of the prophets. It would be crazy to tell we accept and believe in Christ and simultaneously reject Witness John Baptist. Christ get games of the scribes and Pharisees as accept dead prophets and rejects the living prophets. He says these important words about future prophets;
"For I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall not see me again until you say, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord." (Matt 23:39)
Translation from old English reads: ”You can not see Me or feel until acceptance Prophets as I sent to you. " I imagine that of the things that Frustrate Jesus manure is When he sends of His servants to teach his people and these then Rejects them. I can imagine Jesus placing his hand on the servant's head and then say something similar to what he said when he showed state i Israel at that time;
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stones those who are sent to you. How often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and ye would not. 38 Behold, your house will be deserted. 39 For I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall not see me again until you say, Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. "(Matt 23:37)
This pattern in that God sends prophets to their children has lasted for thousands of years. It began with Adam. He rejected. He sent Noah and Abraham and Moses. De rejected. Prophets sent to People on the American continent. Although the avvisas. People says in all time … "We have prophets. Vi do not need more prophets. ”
However, it is Clearly, we need prophets.
Roger Williams … founder of Baptist Church in America expressed this Best Qualityt. Cotton Mather said,, "Mr. Williams told for their supporters to when he himself was misled, he had, in turn, misled themAnd he noted that there was no one on earth as could administering baptism or any of the gospel ordinances. DHY as he advised them refraining all and wait upcoming new Apostles. "
"Mr. Williams [finally] told [his followers] 'that being himself misled, he had [misled them,' and] he was now satisfied williams that there was none upon earth that could administer baptism [or any of the ordinances of the gospel] ... [so] he advised them therefore to forego all ... and wait for the coming of new apostles. "
Will you Remember when Jesus told us "watch out for False Prophets” that would come after his time? Remember The Invisible bThe words of this statement The Savior. Jesus said, Never the not would be some more prophets. If the not would come prophets so he would Having said "now comes not longer prophets". In its warning so are an implicit promise that prophets actually coming after he's gone. He just wants to that we should beware of false Prophets.
And so he leaves us with perhaps of the important advice He can give; "By their fruits ye shall know them."
Does this sound crazy?
It is Biblical.
So when someone says there is no need prophets our time … introduce them to one few whose fruits are worth careful consideration.
