The Daily Word of Righteousness

A Prophet to the Nations, #8

Therefore thus saith the Lord, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them. And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the Lord. (Jeremiah 15:19,20)

The above is the commission of every true prophet of the Lord, of every member of God's elect, every saint, every witness of the Lord.

We are to abandon the popular ways of the churches and return to the fervent seeking of the Lord Jesus Christ, keeping His Word diligently.

If we do that, God will bring us to the place where we are standing before Him, in His very Presence; for this is where His faithful witnesses stand eternally.

Then the Lord God will give us a spirit of judgment so we may be able to remove what is holy to the Lord and acceptable to Him from what man has added to the churches. If we will be faithful in separating between the clean and the unclean, between what is of the Spirit of God and what is of the flesh, God will establish us as His spokesman, His prophet, His witness to the churches and the nations.

We never are to return to the ways of the churches. If we are in the Lord's will, the Lord's people may decide to come our way. We never are to change and go the popular way. We must be prepared to walk alone.

God will make us a fortified bronze wall. The Lord's people may strive to overcome us and our words, and the world will attempt to deceive us, to tempt us, to overcome us. But no person or spirit has the wisdom or power to conquer one of God's elect when he continues steadfastly in the Presence and will of God, extracting the precious from the worthless, making clear to everyone the mind of God.

The Christian Church is in confusion today, and the nations of the earth are in darkness as a result. When the light of righteousness in the churches has been extinguished the nations of the earth have no moral guidelines to follow. The Apostles of the Lamb performed their work faithfully and therefore we possess the New Testament Scriptures. But the Scriptures are not being taught. The traditions of men, such as lawless grace and the pre-tribulation "rapture," are being presented in their place.

What is God's attitude today toward the churches and the nations?

The two witnesses of the eleventh chapter of the Book of Revelation portray to us that just before the Lord returns, the Body of Christ will become—as it never has been before—the Prophet of God among men.

The number two (of the two witnesses) reveals that the double portion of God's Spirit (the two loaves of the feast of Pentecost) will be poured on the saints so they may bear to the nations the most powerful witness of all history of the soon coming of the Kingdom of God (Leviticus 23:17).

The need of the hour is for the elect to be filled to overflowing with a double portion of Acts 1:8 so we may bear a true witness of Christ to the farthest reaches of the earth. We have been invited to pray for rain in the time of the latter rain (Zechariah 10:1). When God fills us with His power we shall be able to bear witness of the Word of the Lord to all people.

O earth, earth, earth, hear the Word of the Lord. (Jeremiah 22:29) (from A Prophet to the Nations)
