How does God call a nation to repentance?

He sends a VOICE!


What does “the voice” say?

  • It reveals the error of personal and corporate ways.
  • It rebukes for failure to follow God’s ways.
  • It reproves for failure to do judgment and justice.
  • It repents corporately while leading the people to repent personally.
  • It revives the spiritual attentiveness of the people.
  • It renews the spiritual attentiveness of the people.
  • It reconciles men to God and to one another.
  • It rebuilds the waste places.
  • It repairs the breach.
  • It restores the ancient paths to dwell in.

To whom is “the voice” directed?

  • It is directed to the Church… “My people.”
  • It is directed in rebuke to pastors who fail to teach the whole truth, lead by holy example, protect from error, and heal the people.
  • It is directed to prophets who falsify, twist and lighten the clear Word of God in favor of the profits in money, merchandising, manipulation and men’s adulation.
  • It is directed first to the spiritual “power brokers”…those in public ministry…then to the civil power brokers of the day, politicians, corporations and businessmen.

Is “the voice” validated by God or men?

  • God sends and inspires “the voice” because men have gone their own way.
  • Spiritual leaders, as a whole, are generally last to validate “the voice,” if ever.
  • The people may, or may not follow or validate “the voice.” Whether they follow or not is irrelevant to its validity.

How is “the voice” identified as being from God?

  • It is like a trumpet call.
  • It shakes, disturbs, confronts, reveals motives and discerns thoughts.
  • It confronts principles, principalities and powers rather than personalities.
  • It warns while providing hope for willing hearers.
  • It speaks to the people rather than through political or spiritual power brokers.
  • It is uncompromising.
  • It is good news to the poor and the common man but upsetting to the prim and proper.
  • It exalts the Word of God above all else.
  • It brings both the Spirit and Truth into harmony for true worshipers.
  • It exalts Jesus Christ while lessening self.
  • It builds God’s Kingdom rather than personal kingdoms.

Does God send more than one voice?

  • God may send more than one messenger, but the messengers sound with one voice.

When does God send “the voice?”

  • God sends “a voice” in the fulness of time…His time.
  • God sends “a voice” when men have become tuned to every voice but His.
  • God sends “a voice” when His own Church has lost its voice.
