1. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN LITTLE BOYS PEEKING OVER A FENCE TO WATCH A BALL GAME? Often the fences are pretty high, so one boy will stand up on another boy's shoulders so he can reach the top of the fence & see over.—Then it's his job to tell the other boys outside about what he sees happening inside!
2. WELL IN A WAY, THIS IS LIKE THE JOB OF A PROPHET OF GOD! The Prophet has to more or less be between two Worlds, or in two Worlds at the same time, one foot in one World & one foot in the other. He has to see & take in what God is showing Him in the World of the spirit, & then relate it back to Earth by describing the visions, revelations or messages that he is receiving from the Lord, so that others can benefit from them also.
3. AND THAT'S WHAT THE PROPHET IN THIS PICTURE IS DOING! He is looking up into the Heavenly realm of the spirit & receiving messages from God's Son, Jesus, which are being passed on to him by God's wonderful Holy Spirit, Whom we see represented here as that beautiful Woman in the clouds! Her Heavenly scrolls are symbolic of the Words of God that She's passing on to the Lord's Prophet.
4. THE PRETTY GIRL TAKING NOTES WHOSE BACK IS TO US IS THE PROPHET'S FAITHFUL SCRIBE, the one who writes down & records what the Prophet is saying when he is caught up "in the spirit". (Rev.1:10) After all, no matter how many wonderful revelations, messages, prophecies or Words from the Lord a Prophet receives, if no one writes them down or records them, they would never do all the people on "the other side of the fence" any good!
5. GOD'S PROPHETS HAVE ALWAYS HAD THEIR SCRIBES & RECORDERS to take down their Words for the people. Having a scribe frees the Prophet from worrying about writing it down himself, so he can tune in & concentrate on whatever the Lord is giving him without distraction. He can then keep his eyes, his mind & his heart in that realm of the spirit‚ simply keeping his tongue in this World, as he describes & passes on what the Lord is showing him.
6. OF COURSE‚ MANY PEOPLE SEEM TO THINK THAT GOD STOPPED DOING MIRACLES & STOPPED SPEAKING 2‚000 YEARS AGO! But a God Who can't talk & can't do anything anymore would be a dead God!—Which may explain why so many people's religion seems to be so dead today! But thank God‚ our God is a live God & He still loves His children & He is still working & still speaking to us today!
7. JUST AS HE SPOKE TO HIS PROPHETS THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO, giving them revelations & information that God's people then needed for their day, so He is still alive & speaking today, giving His Words & revelations to guide His children now! He says, "I am the Lord, I change not!" (Mal.3:6)
8. HE STILL HAS PROPHETS TODAY, HIS MESSENGER BOYS, who relay to the people what the Lord has said & shown to them. And just as the Bible Prophets received dreams & visions‚ revelations & thrilling messages from the Lord & His angels & ministering spirits‚ so His Prophets today do the same!
9. THE HOLY SPIRIT IS PICTURED HERE AS A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN because the Bible says She is the Comforter, the Spirit of Love‚ the Mother-figure of the Trinity. In the beginning when God created man, He said, "Let Us make man in Our Own image, after Our likeness.—Male & female created He them." (Gen.1:26,27) So God's Trinity is male & female! And of course we know that God the Father & His Son Jesus are not female, which leaves only the Holy Spirit to be the Mother!
10. THE BIBLE'S BOOK OF PROVERBS DESCRIBES GOD'S SPIRIT OF LOVE & Wisdom as a "She", Who was with God "from the beginning, before the Earth was." The Father's precious Holy Spirit is His Own Heavenly Mate, the spiritual Mother of His Son Jesus & the loving, comforting Mother of us all in the spirit!
11. GOD HAS ALWAYS USED HIS HOLY SPIRIT TO PASS HIS WORDS & REVELATIONS ON TO HIS PROPHETS. "For the Prophecies did not come in old times by the will of men, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit!" (2Pt.1:21)—Thank God, He is still alive today & His wonderful Holy Spirit still faithfully passes on His wondrous Words to His children!
12. IN FACT‚ THE WONDERFUL WORDS WHICH GOD HAS GIVEN US TODAY HAVE WORKED WONDERS AROUND THE WORLD!—And millions have found new lives of love, meaning & happiness as a result!—And tens of thousands have dedicated their entire lives, forsaking everything, to follow Jesus & to share God's Love with others!—All because of the faithfulness of many Prophets & their faithful scribes, who have been willing to give their lives to be in touch with the Lord, receive His Wonder Working Words & pass them on to "feed God's sheep". (Jn.21:15,17)
13. AS A RESULT, GOD HAS RAISED UP "A PEOPLE WHO WERE NO PEOPLE!" (1Pt.2:9,10) He's called out a band of dedicated, whole-hearted, genuine disciples who have exploded out of the narrow limits of traditional churchianity, into "all the World, preaching the Gospel to every creature!" (Mk.16:15)—Following His directions for His children today, using thrilling new methods & means of reaching today's generation with God's Love!
14. HAVE YOU FOUND GOD'S WONDERFUL LOVE? Have you tasted & enjoyed the refreshing, thrilling, inspiring Water of His Words of Life? If you'd like to, all you have to do is pray & ask Jesus to come into your heart.—Then begin reading & feeding on His wonderful Words in the Gospels of the New Testament of the Bible.
15. JESUS LOVES YOU & WILL COME INTO YOUR HEART RIGHT NOW if you'll simply pray: "Lord Jesus, I believe that You are the Son of God & that You died for me. Please forgive me for all my sins. I now open the door of my heart & I ask You, Jesus, to please come in & give me Your free Gift of Eternal Life. Help me to love You & to love others by telling them about You & Your Love. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen."
