“The conspiracy of her prophets in her midst is like a roaring lion tearing the prey; they have devoured people; they have taken treasure and precious things; they have made many widows in her midst. “Her priests have violated My law and profaned My holy things; they have not distinguished between the holy and unholy, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them. “Her princes in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get dishonest gain. “Her prophets plastered them with untempered mortar, seeing false visions, and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD,’ when the LORD had not spoken.
Prophets are special agents of God appointed and anointed by Him as watchmen over nations. They are commissioned men serving as ambassadors of heaven, receiving warnings from God and releasing same to the people.
A prophet is a fearless spokesman; he is a selfless messenger, a harbinger of the truth and a light in the midst of darkness of the nation.
One good prophet can make a lot of difference in a nation. For a nation to possess many of these trumpet blowers is a huge blessing. Such a nation will be far from corruption, unrighteousness and all forms of social vices. But if and when the prophets to a nation are corrupt and polluted, that land is in serious trouble. Such is the case of my nation presently.
I do not have the figures going by the last population census but I am sure that those who referred to themselves as prophets and those referred to as such are in thousands. Those who are spokes persons for God in Nigeria are millions; those who eat at the altar are tens of million.
Sad enough the impact of their ministries is far from being felt in the nation except of course in endless religious noise makings. Where are the prophets of God who will speak the truth to the leaders of this nation? Where are the ambassadors of heaven, whose mouths are not shut by personal gains from the seat of government? Where are the true watchmen that can tell our president and all other political leaders that “thus says the Lord”?
You see, once the seers of a land are blinded by personal benefits and largess, once the mouths of prophets are filled with illicit victuals, once the ears of those who receive divine instructions on behalf of a nation are deafened by noises of ceremonies of personal gains from the men on the seat of power, the poor people on the street will suffer endlessly with no hope of any respite. When the God’s spokespersons are bought over, then the people on the seat of power will have a filled day as they perpetrate evil and abuse the privilege of power.
There is looting in our nation, the type that is causing international embarrassments , lives are wasted endlessly, power is being grossly abused, the rights of the common man are being trampled upon, the oppressed are being denied justice and the nation is being turned to a private property of few individuals. Yet, the prophets of the land are silent, celebrating in their covens pretending as if all is well. These looters go to church almost every week; they are special guests in special meeting organized by the church, they go to our “prophets” for special prayers, our prophets also invite them in their advertisements to come and receive “anointing” to win elections; the godless leaders of the nation are all over in the churches. Some of them have been made pastors, senior pastors and what have you. But as the church is busy collecting her own share of their loot and the ministers of God are feeding fat on their opportunities, the nation is groping in terrible darkness with no hope of any respite in sight.
It is painful; it is pathetic! “We do not see our signs; There is no longer any prophet; Nor is there any among us who knows how long.O God, how long will the adversary reproach? Will the enemy blaspheme Your name forever?”
The Lord will open doors for you and empower your life to move forward. The Lord will give your life a divine push and you will make uncommon progress. It is well with you.
