Better think about it. He will not be a rubber stamp for all adventurous undertakings. He stands between your ideas and God's plan. At times you will not like him. At times you will wish he wasn't there. He is accustomed to talking going on behind his back. You may even find yourselves throwing words like stones at him. Yes, your words may hurt him but never will you rid yourselves of the word he delivered to you....
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing."
The prophets God sends are far from perfect. If they had all things together, you would make an idol of him. Yet within his speech are the Words of God. To those who listen deeply, he brings life. In this day, God will use the true prophet to bring His Presence or take it away. Today there are many churches who have not taken the prophet seriously and turned from his word. God is now removing His servants the prophets. When this happens the word "Ichabod" is left. This means the" Glory of God has departed." It will be awhile until a church realizes this because they have hardened their reception. The Glory will not come back until they say,
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord."
