A Prophet to the Nation releases God’s hand of power. We are living in a time of crisis and uncertainty. It is during such times that God’s purposes are accomplished through shaking and judgement. The ministry of the prophet is very important at these times, because God cannot act, without first giving a warning through his prophets.
Amos 3:7 —Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.
God cannot shake a nation until he has announced it through his prophets. There are two reasons for this.
God is merciful and always gives people an opportunity to repent, before He allows judgement on a nation. God would be happier if He did not have to shake the nation, He sends a warning, hoping that His people will put things right. But if the warning is not heeded, God has no alternative but to act Himself.
Any shaking event must be recognized as coming from the hand of God. If a judgement is seen as just a normal event, it can be ignored. An event that has been announced beforehand by God’s servants is obviously a work of God and its meaning will ultimately become very clear. The fact that it has been announced beforehand by God’s servant will be proof that it is indeed a work of God.
On Wednesday, April 29, 2015, a profound message was given at the “Washington – A Man of Prayer” from Statuary Hall as members of Congress gathered together to honor the 226th inaugural anniversary of President George Washington. Rabbi Jonathan Cahn delivered a bold, passionate, yet perhaps prophetic warning to the United States Supreme Court. Whether or not this man is a prophet is not the subject for debate here. Nonetheless what he spoke about seems to be “spot on.”
During the speech, he prophesied that God would deliver judgment on both the Supreme Court and the nation if it dared to meddle with the definition of marriage drawing a parallel with Israel’s worship of the pagan god Baal.
It just so happens that he spoke from The U. S. Capitol’s most sacred room – Statuary Hall, the original chamber for the House of Representatives. Here is a clip below:
2 Chronicles 7:14—14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
I am a firm believer that repentance always precedes revival. At least that’s the pattern as seen in the Bible. There is a harvest to be gleaned and it is right here in the U. S. Is there hope for this country or is the handwriting on the wall?
