Evangelism Part 6: Prophets Series

God is behind successful prophecies.

In the beginning, God created every need of humanity before He even formed the first man, the herb that produces seeds and trees whose fruit will yield seeds for their food. The sun will brighten days, and the moon and stars will light the night. It is the source of light that also gives us a healthy body. He formed the man Adam, and Eve came into existence through him. God created humanity in His image and is responsible for ruling over living creatures. God blessed them and told them to be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it.

When God breathed into Adam’s nostrils, from the dust of the ground to a breathing soul, Adam became a living being, as we should all know by now that we are souls with borrowed vessels. When God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden, where he had fellowship with God and established a close relationship with Him, Adam’s perfection deserved to be happy, and God, who can make impossible things possible, took Eve out of Adam’s rib, both naked and without sin they communion with God. Gen. 2:8-20, Gen 2:20-23, Gen. 2:25

As this remarkable story passed for generations, we can surmise that God wants all of us to understand that we are here on earth not to suffer but to enjoy life and His creations. We are here together with all His creations to live side by side peacefully and in unity through the gift of love. God created us with a brain and heart to fulfill His purpose. And He created a kingdom of vegetables, plants, and animals that we can depend on for our nutrition to survive. God is love, and instead of acknowledging that love, we focus more on the hardship of living.

God sent Prophets to hear His voice (1 Cor. 12:8-10); God was directly involved in human activities, yet humans continually sinned. God reset human existence after the deluge, and everyone in the Ark was saved and repopulated the earth. God’s plan was still in place and used Prophets to communicate and speak the Word of prophecy, kings to give the provision, and priests to give the Word of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding so whoever heard their voices and beliefs would walk away from their evil doings.

When God anointed Moses to lead the Israelites, with the uncontrolled behavior of the Israelites, the Ten Commandments written by God’s fingers on a tablet were given to Moses; the idolatrous acts of the Israelites continued until Moses’ emotion led him to break the tablets into pieces. Humans are God’s breathing, and He uses humans to prophesy things to come; he also gives wisdom to the wise that comes bundled with knowledge and understanding. Humans believe in God and acknowledge that all good things are His gifts.

Prophets, Kings, and Priests are anointed people of God in the Old and the New Testament period. Do we still have these people today? Many act as if they are, but they are not. They do not even know what period we are in and preach about the end time, yet they cannot define what it means. Therefore, the first will be the last, and the last will be the first Jesus Christ, the Son of God sent by God as the Prophet, the Priest, and the King of Kings, the last messenger that God had spoken, and after him, there is no one else.

Many claimed, and some are still prophesying, claiming that what they are saying is from God, but they all failed. They are false, and with the spirit of discernment, we can feel the work of deception. They claimed they did the Lord’s work, yet God was not with them. The discerning part that God wants to point out is that, no matter how sincere a person is, if not tuned into the will of God, they will fail, and even though they did great and noble work, authentic success only comes from God. God is behind it and not due to the efforts of man. We are just a channel to reach out to others waiting to receive the Word.

God is all in all
