“But I Hate Him”

“And Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the LORD besides, that we might enquire of him? And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may enquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.”                       1 Kings 22:7-8

Yes men are a dime a dozen, Ahab and Jezebel had a slew of them. A. W. Tozer said; “We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. True prophets will always be hated by some. As a little boy I remember our family gathering around a television set and watching a man walk on the moon. This generation of children {if the Lord tarries} is going to set down in front of a big screen television one day soon and gaze at a preacher going to jail for preaching against the sin of homosexuality. On that day millions {billions?} of people will see this preacher going to jail and snarl “I hate him”.

Pray for an awakening.
