GOD's chosen VOICE box

 

Exodus 3:9-10

King James Version

9 Now therefore, 

behold, 

the cry of the children of Israel 

is come unto me: 

and I have also seen the oppression 

wherewith the Egyptians oppress them.

10 Come now therefore, 

and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, 

that thou mayest bring forth my people 

the children of Israel 

out of Egypt.


Who do you think GOD speaks to, when He has something important to say?

Apart from angels, who does He choose to represent Him on earth?

First, observe how GOD is.

With kings:

Proverbs 25:2

King James Version

2 It is the glory of God 

to conceal a thing: 

but the honour of kings 

is to search out a matter.


With prophets:

Amos 3:7

King James Version

7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, 

but he revealeth his secret 

unto his servants 

the prophets.


Romans 16:25-26

King James Version

25 Now to him that is of power 

to stablish you according to my gospel, 

and the preaching of Jesus Christ, 

according to the revelation of the mystery, 

which was kept secret 

since the world began,

26 But now is made manifest, 

and by the scriptures of the prophets, 

according to the commandment 

of the everlasting God

made known to all nations 

for the obedience of faith:


If prophets weren't God's voice, kings would not have sought them.

Prophets were of invaluable help when kings need to choose leaders, or successors, to help de-code their dreams, or to help them understand God's commands, or rebukes.

Mostly, GOD sends His prophets to WARN kings, and their subjects.

Whether they followed God's prophets, or not, was a different story.

Here's a partial list of who have been sent:

GOD chose prophet Moses, to warn the Egyptian pharaoh.

GOD chose prophet Ahijah, to warn king Solomon.

GOD chose prophet Elijah, to warn king Ahab.

GOD chose prophet Samuel, to give the ungrateful people the king (Saul) they asked for.

GOD chose prophet Samuel, to anoint David as king.

GOD chose prophet Nathan, to rebuke king David of his sin.

GOD chose prophet Jonah, to warn the king and people of Nineveh to repent of their wickedness.


As always, GOD has the LAST WORD.

Which is the spiritual order of things.
