The LORD said,… “And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. So now, go, I am sending you to Pharoah to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.”
But Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:7a, 9-11 NIV)
Last evening, a number of U.S. presidential candidates lined a platform in Southern California to debate before the eyes of the world. Americans–as well as humanity in general–are looking for a savior. Who will rescue? Who will lead them to the Promised Land of peace and prosperity? On what man or woman will everyone pin their hopes? Only one will be chosen, but mark my words: They will not have the spirit of Moses, but the spirit of antichrist.
The world is ready for Satan’s seduction. The candidate who most convincingly promises “peace and safety” or “you will have success” (without turning from sin) will rise to a level of power previously unknown. All nations will sing their leader’s praises. They will shout in revelry like the Israelites did when they danced before the golden calves (cf. Exodus 31:1-20).
Moseses will come forth when God’s people weep and wail over the world’s condition. When the cry of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob’s descendants reaches heaven, then will the Lord respond and send his rescuers.
(Notice, in Exodus 3:11, that our prototype Moses did not believe he was God’s gift to humanity as does the typical politician. Humbly, he asked “Who am I?”)
Prophets have a divine calling, they are not chosen by ballot. People tend to reject divine rule, but want a king like other nations. The world will soon have their king! Pharaoh will seem tame in comparison. The Moseses will appear when all misplaced hope in Egypt dissipates like smoke. Our brothers and sisters experiencing persecution are aware, but Western Christians are not yet at the “awareness” stage.
How will we know prophets like Moses? Not by their rise in the polls, but by their willingness to fill the ruler’s prison. America and this world are presently under God’s judgment. The powerful hope to silence prophetic warnings while they boast of their superior abilities to the adoring crowd.
Want a preview of what the Moseses will be saying? If we have ears to hear, read Revelation 2 and 3. The Prophet went into the midst of seven churches and divided the righteous from the wicked. If it is time for judgment to begin on the household of God, then it’s time for the Moseses to separate the wheat from the chaff.
Are you a Moses in the making? A goal of theprophetsofgod.com blog is to serve anointed men and women by equipping them to walk in their destiny.
I recommend “The Prophets of God: Recognize them, Listen to them, Follow them” (Top left). If we don’t know what a true prophet looks like, how can we be one?
