Do we Still Need the Gift of Prophecy to Remind us? — 5 Comments

  1. It's a good question you ask, William... Do we need a rediscovery of some long neglected writings? I'm sure that's true, yet this study of Deuteronomy has shown me something about the Israelites (and humanity). They promised Moses, "all that God says, we will do" then promptly made a calf to worship! The thing they couldn't seem to do was to stand before God themselves, imploring Moses to do it on their behalf.
    The central message of so many of the prophets who arose in scripture history seems to be "Seek His Face". This thought (though dimly understood by me... why His face?) has changed my approach to scripture, and its amazing to discover more and more about our Father's character of unconditional love.

  2. I am a Sabbath School teacher often when quoting Mrs White from the lesson I will get comments such as "Where is that in the bible" or thats just her opinion. There is a real critical spirit today that didnt used to be there for the writings of the spirit of prophecy. I dont make a big thing out of it I just say she is a prophet and pass along to the next topic.

  3. The words of apostle Peter in his second letter speak to the action of the Spirit of prophecy, citing the letters of the apostle Paul. (2 Peter 3:14-18.) The role of the Spirit of prophecy is to encourage us to diligently seek to live pure peaceful lives by growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. This is the testimony of Jesus to all with whom we associate in our lives: our spouses, our children, our friends, our neighbours, those with whom we work, the other drivers on roadways—everyone.

    As Jesus works patiently to perfect our salvation, we in turn work patiently to perfect the salvation of everyone our lives touch (or maybe in some cases, collide). Every thought, every word, every work—all are weighed against eternity. This is not a heavy burden because it is the work of Jesus. Our role is to let him do his work.

    It is as Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 3:2-3, each of us may be a letter written by Jesus to everyone in our lives, if we let him write that letter. This is the testimony of Jesus to a lost and dying world.

    The questions are: Are we letting the Spirit of prophecy act in and through our lives? Are we letting Jesus write on our hearts every word of our Father’s love? (Jeremiah 31:33; Hebrews 8:10-12; Hebrews 10:14-18.) This is the living message of life to the world. This is the gospel, good news.

    If we are sold out to (worship) Jesus, his testimony in our lives will be the Spirit of prophecy. (Revelation 19:10.) It will mark us as his. The Spirit of prophecy and the testimony of Jesus are not rows of red-bound books on a bookshelf.
