Friends in Christ Weekly Message
July 4, 2009

     The Lord said, “Ezekiel, son of man, I want you to stand up and listen.” After he said this, his Spirit took control of me and lifted me to my feet. Then the Lord said:
     Ezekiel, I am sending you to the people of Israel. They are just like their ancestors who rebelled against me and refused to stop. They are stubborn and hardheaded. But I, the Lord God, have chosen you to tell them what I say. Those rebels may not even listen, but at least they will know that a prophet has come to them.
Ezekiel 2:1-5 (CEV*)

The prophetic call is a very difficult one, but also an extremely important one. The prophet will meet strong resistance. The people may well not heed what the prophet speaks from the Lord, but it must be spoken anyway.

Are you willing to really listen to God's prophets? Are you willing to serve in a prophetic role yourself, should the Lord call on you to do so? Do you understand that the direct leading of the Holy Spirit is essential to the prophetic role?
