Dishonor of 21 Century Prophets - Shirley Carter
No one believes that Apostle John did not accurately portray the visions of the 24-elders, the Throne of God, the Beast arising, The Bowls, Seals, Trumpets, fall of Babylonian system, coming of the Lord. No one says "Who does John think he is revealing such visions & dreams like he can't be wrong?" No one accuses the Prophet Daniel of being prideful when he revealed the last day events of thinking he is special when the others with him did not get the revelation. No one accuses Elijah of thinking he was better than the other prophets when he was caught up in a chariot releasing his mantle to Elisha. No one accuses Ezekiel of being immature because he wrote the vision of the Creatures in a way not many could comprehend.
The way many speak of God's vessels today truly reveals a lack of spiritual insight & honor for not only what vessels are chosen to do with a Biblical foundation, but dishonors the reality of what God can do and who He can raise up. So many don't see themselves as walking like Biblical leaders, so don't truly believe God has such vessels now. Therefore, they respond to God's Servants according to level of their own belief/walk, which is a form of pride. When the standard is raised back to match The GREAT I AM, the responses from His people will too. If someone has problems believing God will pay their bills, they have a hard time believing He will cause time to stand still for them, like Joshua. So they don't believe another knows God like that, yet is is true:
Joshua 10 - Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel:
“Sun, stand still over Gibeon;
And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.”
So the SUN STOOD STILL,
And the MOON STOPPED,
Till the people had revenge
Upon their enemies.
