How many people believe they are doing ‘works’ in His Name, when they are really following after what they want to do? How can you say that you are doing things in His name, when you are really seeking after your own wants and desires? It is SO easy to become convinced that your cause is righteous and that YHVH is on your side…MANY have and many have failed.
The prophets spoke ONLY what YHVH gave them to speak! They brought HIS WORDS to the people who HE SENT them too. They were submitted to Him completely and they surrendered their lives to Him to do with as He pleased. They were sent to speak to people who hated them, despised them and even killed them. They were humiliated and endured difficult and sometimes harsh circumstances to do the will of YHVH. They were willing to suffer, to go where He asked them to go and endure whatever hardship was put upon them…they were His and did His will.
The TRUE prophets of YHVH were NOT the popular men of their day. They were NOT the teachers everyone was seeking or looking to. They did NOT have huge followings and they did not put on events. They did what they were called to do no matter what the cost and they remained obedient and submitted to YHVH. They remained true to their calling…
16 Thus said יהוה of hosts, “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you, they lead you astray. They speak a vision of their own heart, not from the mouth of יהוה. 17 “They keep on saying to those who despise Me, ‘יהוה has said you shall have peace.’ And to all who walk according to the stubbornness of their own heart [they say], ‘No evil comes upon you.’ ” 18 For who has stood in the counsel of יהוה, and has seen and heard His word? Who has listened to His word and obeyed it?
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
