G-d inspired indignation...


Bitterness and grieve can come in the heart-beam of the Prophet’s spirit! A prophet can be angry at seeing the condition of (Christianity) people and their attitude against a Holy G-d, His message and against own brothers and sisters, Nations, wickedness, cruel political leaders, etc...  He will be filled with righteous indignation which G-d inspired against the sins he was called to denounce. This means that he was strengthened by Divine power for his mission, which could be difficult and hard on him! YES, he still can speak about judgments (Harbinger) of G-d over people, nations, wickedness, cruel leaders etc!


Like the Prophet…


The Prophet Ezekiel was called and sent to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that had rebelled against G-d. The Impudent children and stiff-hearted! And whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: This rebellion house, yet, shall know that there had been a prophet among them. And he shall speak His Words unto them! (Ezekiel 2:1-7)


Like the Prophet Jeremiah, who was seeking after G-ds righteousness and wanting immediate action of dealing with the people who came so against him! How many times he did warn the King and the Israel’s people of the coming judgments; the total destruction of Jerusalem? But G-d also provided a “way” out of it through his prophet! A solution, even if the circumstances were terrible!
Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? (Jeremiah 3:29) 

Like a (consuming) fire, a great purifier which destroys all that is false and leaves only the “genuine one”, like that of purifying Gold!

Like a hammer which rouses and strengthens the life and conscience, crushing everything that is evil within the hearts!

Like David was compared to his grown up brothers, he was not even counted important enough to be urged to attend the feast. He remained yet the youngest, and behold, he kept the sheep’s, perhaps smaller than the other sons of Jesse, in people eyes, but he was a chosen one of G-d, Who was looking on the heart and not the outward appearance. He had the true qualities to be a prophet and a great king!

The L-rd guards the prophet!


The L-rd guards the prophet from dwelling exclusively on the national character of his specific mission.  In the midst of general (pre-)judgments, superficiality & rejection the prophet has to stand alone before his G-d and give account of himself according to his own works (Ezekiel 3:17-27; Ezekiel 18:1-23; Ezekiel 33:1-20).

Sent out to, like...!
Like Abraham I was sent out of my country, to go to the nations and to preach His Word... Facing the Nation's hostility for no reason, conflicts with people with predetermined opinions, without any knowledge of the facts; but just by assuming! Prejudice!
Like Joseph, I had to go out of my comfort and security of ... and be tested on many ways! Falsely accused and faced the challenges of the accusers.
Like Moses I was asking G-d, "Who am I  that..?"
Like David was compared to his grown up brothers, he was not even counted important enough to be urged to attend the feast!
Like the Prophet Ezekiel, he was called and sent to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that had rebelled against G-d. The impudent children and stiff-hearted! And whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: This rebellion house, yet, shall know that there had been a prophet among them. And he shall speak His Words unto them! (Ezekiel 2:1-7)

Purpose: To bring the ungodly ones of to repentance that they might avert further judgment of G-d; to encourage the G-dly ones to continue being true; to reveal punishment of other nations for their part in the rebellion; to reveal a future restoration of the nation and the eternal reign of the Messiah on earth.
Like the Prophet Jeremiah, who was seeking after Gods righteousness and wanting immediate action of dealing with the people who came so against him!
Is not My Word like as a Fire? [That consumes all that cannot endure the test] Says the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks in pieces the rock? (Jeremiah 23:29)
Like the ancient Prophet Daniel. He was one of the greatest ancient Prophet of Israel, during his captivity in Babylon. His unblemished character and perseverance in his unparalleled quality for his understanding given from the angel Gabriel (Daniel 9:23; 10:11; 19); the future especially the End-Times! From all the ancient Prophets, Daniel provided even for us today, the most detailed description of specified the major events & timing in the "End-Times"! (Daniel 12:9)  

The main themes of Christian eschatology were developed by the great
ancient Prophets, especially by Daniel & Ezekiel. Several "New Testament" prophecies found there source in the Book of Daniel. This prophet heavily influenced the concept and language of the prophet Zachariah & Haggai and the Apostles Paul & John!


Picture of a Prophet
By Leonard Ravenhill


The prophet in his day is fully accepted of G-d and totally rejected by men. Years back, Dr. Gregory Mantle was right when he said, "No man can be fully accepted until he is totally rejected." The prophet of the L-rd is aware of both these experiences. They are his "brand name." The group, challenged by the prophet because they are smug and comfortably insulated from a perishing world in their warm but untested theology, is not likely to vote him "Man of the year" when he refers to them as habituates of the synagogue of satan!


The prophet comes to set up that which is upset. His work is to call into line those who are out of line! He is unpopular because he opposes the popular in morality and spirituality. In a day of faceless politicians and voiceless preachers, there is not a more urgent national need than that we cry to G-d for a prophet! The function of the prophet, as Austin-Sparks once said, "Has almost always been that of recovery."


The prophet is G-d's detective seeking for a lost treasure. The degree of his effectiveness is determined by his measure of unpopularity.
Compromise is not known to him!

He has no price tags. He is totally "otherworldly."
He is unquestionably controversial and unpardonably hostile.
He marches to another drummer!
He breathes the rarefied air of inspiration.
He is a "seer" who comes to lead the blind.
He lives in the heights of G-d and comes into the valley with a "thus saith the L-rd!"
He shares some of the foreknowledge of G-d and so is aware of impending judgment.
He lives in "splendid isolation."
He is forthright and outright, but he claims no birthright.
His message is "repent, be reconciled to G-d or else...!"
His prophecies are parried.
His truth brings torment, but his voice is never void.
He is the villain of today and the hero of tomorrow.
He is excommunicated while alive and exalted when dead!
He is dishonored with epithets when breathing and honored with epitaphs when dead.

He is a schoolmaster to bring us to Yeshua/Christ, but few "make the grade" in his class.
He is friendless while living and famous when dead.
He is against the establishment in ministry; then he is established as a saint by posterity.
He eats daily the bread of affliction while he ministers, but he feeds the Bread of Life to those who listen.
He walks before men for days but has walked before  G-d for years.
He is a scourge to the nation before he is scourged by the nation.
He announces, pronounces, and denounces!
He has a heart like a volcano and his words are as fire.
He talks to men about G-d.
He carries the lamp of truth amongst heretics while he is lampooned by men.
He faces G-d before he faces men, but he is self-effacing.
He hides with G-d in the secret place, but he has nothing to hide in the marketplace.
He is naturally sensitive but supernaturally spiritual.
He has passion, purpose and pugnacity.
He is ordained of G-d but disdained by men.


Our national need at this hour is not that the dollar recover its strength, or that we find the answer to the ecology  and economic problems, we are facing today! We need a G-d-sent prophet!


I am bombarded with talk or letters about the coming shortages in our national life: bread, fuel, energy. I read between the lines from people not practiced in scaring folk. They feel that the "seven years of plenty" are over for us. The "seven years of famine" are ahead. But the greatest famine of all in this nation at this given moment is a FAMINE OF THE HEARING OF THE WORDS OF G-D (Amos 8:11).


Millions have been spent on evangelism in the last twenty-five years. Hundreds of gospel messages streak through the air over the nation every day. Crusades have been held; healing meetings have made a vital contribution. "Come-outers" have "come out" and settled, too, without a nation-shaking revival. Organizers we have. Skilled preachers abound. Multi-million dollar Christian organizations straddle the nation. BUT where, oh where, is the prophet? Where are the incandescent men fresh from the Holy place? Where is the Moses to plead in fasting before the Holiness of the L-rd for our moldy morality, our political perfidy, and sour and sick spirituality?


G-d's men are hiding until the day of their showing forth,
they will come!


The prophet is violated during his ministry, but he is vindicated by history. There is a terrible vacuum in evangelical Christianity today. The missing person in our ranks is the prophet. The man with a terrible earnestness! The man totally otherworldly! The man rejected by other men, even other good men, because they consider him too austere, too severely committed, too negative and unsociable.


  • Let him be as plain as John the Baptist!
    Let him for a season be a voice crying in the wilderness of modern theology and stagnant "churchianity" !
    Let him be as selfless as Paul the apostle!
    Let him, too, say and live, "This ONE thing I do." !
    Let him reject ecclesiastical favors!?
    Let him be self-abasing, non-self-seeking, non-self-projecting, non-self- righteous, non-self-glorying, non-self-promoting!
    Let him say nothing that will draw men to himself but only that which will move men to G-d!
    Let him come daily from the Throne room of a Holy G-d, the place where he has received the order of the day!
    Let him
    , under G-d, unstop the ears of the millions who are deaf through the clatter of shekels milked from this hour of material mesmerism!
    Let him cry with a voice this century has not heard because he has seen a vision no man in this century has seen!


G-d send us this Moses to lead us from the wilderness of crass materialism, where the rattlesnakes of lust bite us and where enlightened men, totally blind spiritually, lead us to an ever-nearing Armageddon! G-d have mercy! Send us PROPHETS
