Mission of the Prophet

Isaiah prophesied the calling of John the Baptist. But every prophet of God has a similar calling to John the Baptist. A prophet is essentially about pulling down the proud and raising up the humble and in the process all flesh is equal.

No one should exalt their flesh above the will of God. Jeremiah the prophet was called by God to do what John the Baptist did. Prophets are given iron strength to their human spirit. Prophets have much insight, they see, they are also called seers, they see in the spiritual.

Isaiah says “every valley shall be exalted” meaning the humble of heart and flesh will be exalted “and every mountain and hill brought low” meaning the proud of heart and flesh will be brought down from their heights. Simply put God’s wants all humans to know all flesh is equal and any rank to a person has to come from God not people.

God says “all flesh is grass……….the grass withers….But the Word of our God stands forever” meaning people make much of their flesh; to many it’s about looks of the flesh; for many it’s about being proud of the flesh and what it achieves.

God says “the breath of the Lord blows upon it” meaning God just needs to blow upon your flesh and your flesh will wither.

The prophet is preparing for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ; Jesus will return. The prophets task looks hopeless and we see for example the prophet Jeremiah lamenting. Jeremiah wrote down his complaints and we got the book of Lamentations. No one knows when Jesus Christ is returning but the prophet keeps on doing his mission, regardless.

The prophet is about straight. The prophet loves straight. The prophet hates crookedness. The prophet wants the crooked person to become straight. The prophet is a straight thinker and a straight talker. The way of the coming Lord has to be a straight way. Jesus Christ is a straight thinker. Jesus is no crook.

The prophet sees the sins. Any flesh exalting itself against the prophets insight vexes the prophets heart. The prophet is often vexed of heart. Sin troubles the prophets heart. Vexation is trouble. Sins burn out. Sin burns against the Spirit and Words of God. The prophets heart is like an on going fire.

Isaiah 40:3-31 New King James Version (NKJV)

The voice of one crying in the wilderness:

“Prepare the way of the Lord;

Make straight in the desert[a]

A highway for our God.

Every valley shall be exalted

And every mountain and hill brought low;

The crooked places shall be made straight

And the rough places smooth;

The glory of the Lord shall be revealed,

And all flesh shall see it together;

For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

The voice said, “Cry out!”

And he said, “What shall I cry?”

“All flesh is grass,

And all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.

The grass withers, the flower fades,

Because the breath of the Lord blows upon it;

Surely the people are grass.

The grass withers, the flower fades,

But the word of our God stands forever.”
