The sons of the prophets.

Posted by appolus on January 9, 2020

The time has come once again to hear the voice of God. through His prophets. A prophet is not cultivated but called and sent by God. One of my passions is to see God once again at the center of His church-to see Him honored and glorified in such a manner that it will push out all the things that are contrary to God. We have bred a generation that is far removed from those who have gone before us and is almost indistinguishable as being related to them. We have a generation of sons of the prophets( think of Eli) that is more interested in the accoutrements of the message than in the inner reality of the message.

How entertaining was it for Stephen to die in the presence of his enemies? How entertaining was it for the martyrs of the church to march to their martyrdom? Who was applauding all of this? Who was being entertained by the sufferings and sacrifices of the church? The sons of the prophets have created a generation of pseudo-Christians who bear little or no resemblance to those early Christians who died for their faith. The sons of the prophets are careful to leave out the offensive parts . They are very selective about the truths they present. What they present is true, but what they leave out is devastating.

There seems to be no condemnation elements in the church anymore. Conviction has lost its place and no one is calling the church to repentance. There is nothing to repent for anymore. We are God’s happy happy little children dancing our way into heaven. What a pathetic description. The message depends upon celebrities to carry it into the culture. No other generation needed celebrities. Could it be that we need help from celebrities, especially from those who have never experienced a life changing relationship with Jesus Christ and who have lifestyles completely contrary to Biblical standards? ( A.W.Tozer)

Here Tozer bemoans the sons of the prophets. This generation that is weak and anemic that was passed down from weak and anemic previous generations. One can only imagine what he would make of what we see today. Where is the burning heart of the church today? Where is the fire for the incredible truths that we present? Where is the militancy of the church of old? On every side we are surrounded by a hostile culture but rather than confront that culture our aim seems to placate it. Rather than running towards Goliath we are running away from the fight. Where is that indignation that burned in David today? Why are our shirts not rent and why are we not covered in dust and ashes? Where is the fire of Stephen and where are those who would willingly give up everything they have in support of the Truth that lies trampled in the streets?

“Oh but we do not want to upset anyone.” Words of cowards and what is worse those cowards then turn their cowardice into a virtue. It is rotten to the core and it stinks to the high heavens. That stench has surely come before the throne. This generation, you sons of the prophets who stand upon the shoulders of your forefathers, why should you be allowed to carry the banner of Christ? What will God do with a pseudo-generation of Christians? Shall He not give them over to a reprobate mind? He shall. Stand on the truth or be swallowed up by the muck and the mire of a world in total rebellion to God. Decide today where you stand and who you stand with. You cannot stand with one foot in the world and one foot in the Kingdom. You will fall headlong into the chasm that is at this very moment turning into a canyon as wide as any canyon on earth.

    I was thinking today about how in today’s christianity it is called a sin or judging, no one is ever confronted of their wicked deeds. You are then told look at the log in your own eye. But if you are walking in the light with a repetant heart towards the Lord and you try in all your ways to cleave to Him, the word says we are being cleansed
    1 John 1:7-8
    But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
    8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us
    It is frustrating to see those who say “they have no sin” to continue in their corrupt ways. I am learning that the Lord tells us that we should judge fruit. And I believe that the Lord will anoint His bride to stand as Stephen and speak words of truth and we will see our Lord standing at the right hand of God as we are clothed in His glory, we will proclaim things that will cause our deaths as well . But the Lord Jesus Christ the Almighty God will have the last word !
