Speaking Clearly

Joseph said to Pharaoh,

Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the land of Egypt, but seven years of famine will follow them (Gen 41:29-30).
Joseph was accepted by Pharaoh, because had received a clear straightforward message from the Holy Spirit.

Daniel said the King,
This is what these words mean:
God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end. You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting. Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians. (Dan 5:26-28).
The Spirit gave Daniel words that the King could not understand.

God wants his prophets to speak to political and business leaders. These leaders will only listen, if the prophets bring clear words. If prophets bring confusion and mystery, they will be ignored.

Prophets must learn to hear what the Spirit is saying to the political and business leaders, so they can bring a clear word. They must also learn to remain silent, if they have not heard from him.
