Complete Message

The message of modern Christian prophets often has two parts.

  • God has great things that he wants to do through his people. These are really amazing.
  • His people will need to change the way that they are living to receive it.
We tend to focus on the first part, but often ignore the second part. Even the prophets tend to amplify the first part and play down the second.

The consequence is that the changes needed are often not made, and so the promise of the first part cannot be received. People then say that the promise was not true. They reject the prophet’s word.

However, the reason we do not receive what God has promised is that we have not made the changes necessary to receive it.
