Prophet to the Nations

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

One role of the OT prophets was to monitor the covenant that God made with Israel and challenge the nation’s failure to comply, and warn of the consequences. That role has finished because God has not extended the old covenant with other nations, but established a covenant through Jesus. The role of covenant guardian perhaps still applies to the nation of Israel which claims to be under the old covenant, but it would be serious critic, rather than a cheerleader for what the Israel government is doing that the American church has become. The nation probably needs modern prophets to challenge its failure to comply with God’s covenant.

The other role of the Old Testament prophets was to speak to the surrounding nations and warn them what was going on spiritually and what would happen if they carried on in the way they were going. See Isaiah 13-21, Jeremiah 46-52, Ezekiel 25-30. There were others including Elijah, Elisha and Jonah. Daniel and Joseph spoke to the emperors of their time.

These prophetic words to nations and rulers were not couched in the context of covenant, because God did not have a special covenant with the surrounding nations. They warned the nations of what would happen if they continued on their existing path. This was a substantial part of the prophet’s ministry and I see nothing in the New Testament that says that this role is discontinued and that God has stopped speaking to kings and nations. Why would a God who speaks stop speaking? Rather, Rev 10:11 suggests that the role will continue.

What has changed is that God no longer relies on one prophet to speak to many nations. He will use many prophets, but just a few speaking to each nation or ruler, because the role has been split up and spread around since the Holy Spirit has been poured out widely. The modern prophet movement is a long way from being able to exercise this role, but it is still needed.

The United States is on a dangerous path, far more dangerous than most Christians realise, and it is being led down that path by nationalistic/patriotic failed/false prophets. The nation really needs a clear prophetic voice to warn it if of the dangers it faces (and that have nothing to do with the Old Covenant).

      The old testament and in Revelations we read about this thing called the voice of many waters, the voice of God’s people out of whom the rivers of life flow. Each of us have our testimony and word that God gave us. And so, the word that comes to us, our testimony is what we have to tell. There are many prophets in the Body of Christ, and there is no such thing as a premiere prophet as in the Chief Prophet since Jesus Christ is the Chief Prophet of us all who believe. There are also many false christ and false prophets in this world today, and many people listen to and follow them. A true Preacher will preach the word of God, and will not be using the words of other men or other prophets in this world today to add some credence and credibility to their teachings, to their prophecies. There are prophets in this world today, some true some false, and if you know the word of God I mean if you read it for yourself you will not be fooled by false prophets you will not follow them. And I think long about now God needs to empower the words of His prophets and preachers in the world today. With words that cause the earth to quake, and lightening to thunder and roll, that cause the foundations of the strongholds of Satan to come crumbling down. Hear the words of the prophets and use your discernment, and also look for real clear prophecy being delivered from teaching the word of God not men’s visions or dreams, most of their visions and dreams lie to them.
