8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy?
-Imagine you are face to face with a lion. I think most of us would be afraid simply at the lion’s presence; certainly when he roars fear would become a foregone conclusion. Such is the case with the Word of God. His mere presence should be enough to spur us to action; certainly when He speaks prophesying becomes a foregone conclusion. But, one may say, the time of prophets and prophecies is over. Remember what the servant told John in Revelation 19:11, “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” The most powerful message any prophet could share, that any of us could share, is what Jesus Christ has done, what He is doing, and what He will do in the future. The Lord has spoken; “He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly.” (Revelation 22:20) So go, prophesy.
