Answers!! – Trivia Thursday- Who is God’s Prophet?

Hey Neighbor!

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.
(Deut 18:22)

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

(Isaiah 55:11)

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

Trivia Thursday Question- Why Did God Provide ‘Refuge Cities?

Hey Neighbor!

Next Thursday, we will explore God’s purpose for requiring Moses to setup or to establish ‘refuge cities’ in the Promise Land, and How these ‘places of refuge’ are still important for Christians today.

*Hint – Remember that Moses was also a refugee, for nearly 40 years; having fled from Egypt to Land of Midian.

(You can read more regarding Moses’s escape from Egypt in my blog titled, ‘Moses, A Fugitive From Justice.’

You can also learn more about refuge cities in the book of Deuteronomy.

Trivia Thursday- Who is God’s True Prophet??

Hey Neighbor!

Today is Trivia Thursday and our question for today is: ‘Who is God’s True prohet?’

Well, How do We know when a prophet has come forth with an authentic Word from the Lord?

Well, before We search out Our answers, let’s define the word ‘prophet.’

A prophet operates as spokesperson for God.

God can use this individual as His vessel or ‘mouthpiece‘ to communicate a message to His people or even to communicate a message against another group of people. The prophet communicates this message from God’s very own heart as to direct, to instruct, and/or to warn Us.

You may be very familiar with certain prophets from the Bible such as Moses, Jeremiah, and/or Samuel. Each of these individuals served as a walking, talking, and sometimes crying ‘mouthpiece’ for God.

In Deuteronomy 18:18, God speaks to Moses, saying:

I will raise up for them a prophet (Prophet) from among their brethren like you, and will put My words in his mouth; and he shall speak to them all that I command him.

In Jeremiah: 1:9, God speaks to Jeremiah:

Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth. And the Lord said to me, Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.

In 1 Samuel, 4:1, we read:

AND THE word of [the Lord through] Samuel came to all Israel.

So, As We can see- based upon these scriptures, each of these prophets were used to speak for God, often foretelling events by divine inspiration.

But here again- How will We know for sure that God has sent His prophet to Us?

How do We know if one who comes speaking a message – ‘in the Name of the Lord’- is a True, legitimate prophet?

Well, take Your time and read through Deuteronomy, Jeremiah, and/or Samuel. You may also find evidence to support Your answer by reading through other prophetic books- like Daniel, and/or Isaiah- who both also served as prophetic mouthpieces for God.

As You search for Your answers, try to refrain from allowing Your electronic devices to do Your homework. Hopefully, you will be diligent in Your own search and realize that it can be great fun to study the Word for Yourself.

Thanks for stopping by today and please leave Your answers in the comments section below!

I will provide answers on next Thursday.

Until Next Time, Remember…
