As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. – 1 Peter 4:10-11

In prophetic ministry, there is no place for the messenger to reflect. There is no ruminating this heavenly message in one’s mind. The faithful servant does not falter. This message must be delivered; it is the expression of God. Trust the the Holy Spirit; let the words glow in the Light for those waiting to share them.

For Judgment (saith he) am I come into the World. That so after you have felt his righteous Judgments, for every unrighteous Thing, you may find him to be near, which justifieth your Souls; and that you may experience Christ’s Coming in yourselves, with Power and great Glory, to work Redemption in you, as well as that he hath purchased Redemption for you. (Elizabeth Bathurst, 1655?-1685)
