The Missing Man is the Prophet By Leonard Ravenhill
"God's men are in hiding until the day of their showing forth. They will come. "
"The prophet is violated during his minis-try, but he is vindicated by history."
There is a terrible vacuum in Evangelical Christianity today. The missing person in our ranks is the Prophet. The man with a terrible earnestness. The man totally other-worldly. The man rejected by other men, even other good men, because they consider him too austere, too severely committed, too negative and unsociable.
Let him be as plain as John the Baptist. Let him for a season be a voice crying in the wilderness of modern theology and stagnant churchianity. Let him be as selfless as Paul the Apostle. Let him, too, say and live, "This ONE thing I do." Let him reject ecclesiastical favours, let
him be self-abasing, non self-seeking, non self-projecting, non self-glorying, non self-promoting. Let him say nothing that will draw men to himself, but only that which will move men to God.
Let him come daily from the Throne Room of a Holy God. The place where he has received the order of the day. Let him, under God, unstop the ears of the millions who are deaf through the clatter of shekels milked from this hour of material mesmerism. Let him cry with a voice this century has notheard because he has seen a vision no man in this century has seen. God send us this Moses to lead us from the wilderness of crass materialism, where the rattlesnakes of lust bite us and where enlightened men, totally blind spiritually, lead us to an ever-nearing Armageddon.
God have mercy; send us PROPHETS!
`Those who love God with all their heart,'
Mr. Wesley said, `must expect most
opposition from professors who have gone
on twenty years in a lazy, old beaten track,
and they fancy they are wiser than all the
world; these always oppose the work of
sanctification most:" u
