3 Can two people walk together
without agreeing on the direction?
We must be on essentially the same page and same direction. IF there is an agenda outside the one being presented publicly, it needs to be exposed.
4 Does a lion ever roar in a thicket
without first finding a victim?
Sometimes the roar of ministry is not a victimless crime. It's important that the victim is the enemy and not some innocent.
Does a young lion growl in its den
without first catching its prey?
There is no time to proclaim victory when the victory hasn't happened yet.
5 Does a bird ever get caught in a trap
that has no bait?
Does a trap spring shut
when there’s nothing to catch?
Some things in ministry LOOK good, but are a trap. We have all seen it in the last year. Ministries that looked good but were corrupt at it's core.
6 When the ram’s horn blows a warning,
shouldn’t the people be alarmed?
Does disaster come to a city
unless the Lord has planned it?
The truth is, some of the Judgement we see on the nation, and on the Church is because the Lord in in the business of making things right.
7 Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything
until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets.
AND that is why ANY valid church or ministry MUST have TRUE PROPHETS in a position to speak directly to leadership without retribution the mind of the Lord. IF NOT....it will fall.
That is THE WORD of the LORD to someone today. YOU MUST have the word of the Lord from someone who has nothing to gain other than favor with GOD, or you will fail.
