You must go to Jesus Christ, to the Word of God, privately (Mark 13:3) when you do not know something and seek revelation (understanding) by listening to His Voice, hearing His words in your ear! THAT, i.e. His Words which you hear with ears to hear, is that revealed light, His truth, and it is His Words that you are to preach, as in herald or proclaim like a watchman from the housetops.
You are to hear ALL of His words in your ears! Again, it is His Words you are to proclaim and not the words of men and their traditions.Ezekiel 3:10
Moreover He said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.
Be prepared for some major rejection because most people will not hear, as in listen and take heed to what you say, even though you speak His words by directly quoting from the Word of God. Quite frankly, God says they will not hearken unto you because they won't even listen to Him. So do not be discouraged if you are sent as a watchman to herald His Word from the housetops! Remember, those hardened (hardheaded) wine skins not only can't handle new wine, the truth of His Word, they don't want to even hear it! Ezekiel 3:7 "But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted." And go, get thee to them of the captivity, unto the children of thy people, and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.
Let us read one more time for emphasis what it is we are to hear in our ears.
When you think about it, if you did not hear His words from His mouth then how could you proclaim what His Word says? Now here is another question: "Should one fear for his or her flesh life?" Those who believe in the "rapture" certainly seem to, for since they claim one must already be "saved" before he or she qualifies for the trip, the only thing the rapture can do is save the flesh from those who can kill the body. What does Christ say about fearing those who can kill the flesh body?Ezekiel 3:17
Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
