Alan J. Reinach, Esq. Director of Public Affairs and Religious Liberty in the Pacific Union writes about modern prophets:
"Seventh-day Adventists are called to
fulfill a prophetic ministry. If you don’t know that, or don’t know
what our prophetic calling is, maybe you need to find out. We are
called to submit our lives to the powerful guiding of the Holy Spirit,
and to serve God, no matter what the cost. As we begin the new year, we
would do well to begin on our knees, seeking a deeper repentance, a
deeper dependence, and a closer walk with God.
is God calling for prophets to do? The essential work of a prophet is
to speak truth to power. Most of us feel powerless and voiceless. We
can’t speak to the powers in city hall, much less in the nation. No one
will listen to us. In the current political climate, the way
individuals make their voices heard in the halls of power is by
organizing. It takes time to build credibility, to build relationships,
and to make one’s voice heard."
