Behold, I Send "Elijah" - My Messenger - Before Me

Yahweh's Intercessors: His servants the prophets.
In Amos 3:7, the Sacred Scripture [matter-of-factly] states: "Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets." And yet, why does He always operate in this well-established and carefully defined manner? Meanwhile, Proverbs 29:18 gives us this remarkably honest answer, "Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law." Consequently, we find that Yahweh's own personal actions are always set down and predefined by His prophets, that they might not be: mis-understood, mis-applied, or mis-interpreted by His People.

Throughout human history He has always carefully chosen and selectively raised up these servants among us - in the same spirit as "Elijah, The Prophet" - to cull and shepherd His flock... for it is the inherent nature of man to pick and choose amongst His scriptures - only those passages, which will justify and rationalize our already firmly entrenched personal positions. Rather than obeying all of His scriptures, and seeking out a full communion with Our Father Yahweh, we prefer to stand just comfortably close - for whenever He might be more reasonably needed.
