Last Thursday, Our trivia question asked ‘Who is God’s Prophet?’
Well, Our answer can be found in Deuteronomy 18:21-22:
-And if you say in your [minds and] hearts, How shall we know which words the Lord has not spoken (Deut 18:21)
-When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or prove true, that is a word which the Lord has not spoken.
So, what does this mean?
It means that unfortunately, we may miss out on hearing from God’s prophet if We are only looking for superficial signs and expecting to hear God’s message from a handsome, eloquent, educated, well dressed, speaker.
God said He would would raise up a prophet (Moses) for the Hebrew people- from amongst their brothers.
Remember that Moses was an Old man (80+) at this point when he was called. He was a simple shepherd, with a speech impediement. Now Jeremiah, another Old Testament prophet was very young. Although he was the son of a Hebrew priest, he was just a boy, who also did not speak very well either. Still God told them both to, ‘Go Forth and tell the people!’
And though they both protested much, God reminded both Moses and Jeremiah, that He would be with them and He would place His word’s in their mouths and teach them what to say.
Because God was using them as His vessels to pour out His very Own message upon the people, He reminded them that He (God)- not them (prophets) would be faithful to accomplish it. He (God) would cause His message to be proven True!
In Jeremiah 1:12, God specifically tells Jeremiah that “I am alert and watching over My word to perform it.”
So this tells us ultimately, that We must wait on the Lord to cause His word to come to pass. He reminds Us in Isaiah, that His word Will Not return to Him void.
– So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it
So if the word initiated from God, He Will be faithful to fulfill it!
Then You will know that God’s prophet has spoken because ‘None of His words will fall to the ground!’
1 Samuel 3:19
