Listen to the word of the Prophet
If there is calamity in a city, will not the LORD have done it? 7 Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. 8 .... The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy?(Amos 3:6-8)
There is nothing spooky about prophecy. All of God's people can prophecy. Prophecy is simply declaring the word that God has spoken. It is not hard to find the word of the Lord, it is clearly declared in the pages of the Bible. The word of prophecy is not a mystery, it is a plain word. The mystery is the mystery of iniquity that will not hear the word of the Lord. "Seeing they will not see, hearing they will not hear", until the word of the Lord comes to pass. And even then, only a remnant take heed to the voice of the Lord.
What is the word of prophecy? It is simply: "If you obey my commandments", says the Lord, "I will bless you". "But if you disobey my commandments, then I will curse you, and curse upon curse will come upon you, until you either repent and are healed, or you harden your heart beyond redemption and are destroyed."
May God have mercy upon our nation of Australia, lest we go the way of other Christian nations that were overthrown in history, because they forsook their Christian heritage and embraced foreign gods, and entertained foreign laws.
