There aren’t many Old Testament prophet types around these days. No bearded Jeremiahs wagging their finger at wicked men. No Elijahs rising to heaven in chariots of fire. But their legacy lives on. For we are their fellow servants. Today, the average homemaker with three children and thirty–three chores might prophesy, because whoever shares Jesus with a neighbor or friend is a prophet. “For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
These are the last days. We are God’s sons and daughters. And whether you give the Gospel to a bunch of residents with cerebral palsy at a care facility or witness alongside Billy Graham at a gigantic crusade, the Spirit of God rests upon you as you testify of Jesus.
On second thought, maybe I am a prophet of Acts. And you could be, too. So get out there and prophesy!
The pouring out of God’s Spirit on his sons and daughters has been happening ever since the last days kicked off with the book of Acts. But something is now shifting in God’s timetable… his Spirit is being poured out abundantly and in a special sense… now is the time to hold to the testimony of Jesus, the spirit of prophecy.
Give me, O God, a sense of urgency to hold to the testimony of Jesus in these last days.
