PRAISE AND WORSHIP


MESSAGE:

Many people have missed out and many are missing out on the blessings they ought to derive from great agents of heaven called prophets. Especially in the Old Testament, prophets of God were used to fulfil God's glorious purposes in the lives of individuals (widow of Zarephath, Naaman), families (woman of Shunem), wife of the late son of the prophet, land and city (Jericho), nations (Israel, Samaria, etc). The Bible says, "And by a prophet the LORD brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved" (Hosea 12:13). Furthermore, to buttress the importance of the prophet in God's agenda, the Bible says, "Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper" (2 Chronicles 20:20b).


Prophets are God's oracles and carriers of His power and authority. They are anointed and serve as His change agents. They hear from God and reveal the mind of God to people. Prophet Moses led Israel out of Egypt through divine and dramatic deliverance. Also, by Prophet Joshua, God led Israel into the Promised Land.


The Shunamite woman did not know that God brought Elisha her way to use him as her destiny helper. She decided to follow instinct. She provided him a room and a bed to sleep, meals and everything that would make the man of God comfortable. What did she get in return? Prophet Elisha spoke into her life and the long-standing problem of barrenness bowed out. She became a proud mother of a baby boy.


King Hezekiah had just received a threat and disturbing letter from Sennacherib, the Syrian war general. He had seen the army and was disturbed. He contacted Prophet Isaiah who assured him that God purposes to disgrace Sennacherib. In the end, God's intervention birthed Sennacherib's death. He was killed by one of his sons in the house of his god (Isaiah 37:21-38).


Beloved, who is your prophet? Do you treat him or her with honour? Do you believe him or her? Those who fail to believe and honour their prophets often stay in the wilderness for long and end up unfulfilled. That will not be your portion, in the name of Jesus.


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES:

Give honour to whom it is due: God and His prophets.
