Heb:10:35-39, (Isa. 8:18).
INTRODUCTION: For recipients of God’s words, promises and declarations to become beneficiaries indeed, they owe themselves the responsibility of recognizing the part they have to play, and go ahead to do same (cp. Heb. 6:12; 10:36). By refusing to recognize and do his part, a recipient refuses to be a beneficiary (cp. Heb. 4:1-2).
The Word of God has revealed that part of the will of God we need to do in order to INHERIT THE PROMISE made us of being Wonders even in this critical year, is to fit ourselves into the calibre of men declared wonders (Ps. 71:7; Isa. 8:18; Zech. 3:8). In keeping with this, the Lord would have us to re-position ourselves into Priests/Kings that we ought to be, in order to be wonders indeed (cp. Rev. 1:4-6; 5:9-10).
Today, the Lord is going to show us other categories of the calibre of men fitted for the promise, and the need for us to re-position ourselves accordingly.
Prophets of old were divine instructors and guides of the people in piety and virtue. They were God’s messengers declaring His counsel to the people, reminding them of divine instructions, ordinances, statutes and judgment as had been delivered to them, and the punishment associated with recalcitrance (cp. 2Chro. 36:15-16; Jer. 25:3-7; 44:1-4).
The above prophecy refers, on the one hand, to Isaiah and his sons (cp. Isa. 8:18), and on the other hand, to the Lord Jesus Christ and His disciples (true believers) (cp. Heb. 2:10-13).
The Lord Jesus is that prophet that was to be raised in the room of Moses (Deut. 18:15-19). Evidently, all true believers in Christ are in the room of the prophets of old (cp. Matt. 5:10-12; Jms. 5:10).
