We have discussed in previous blogs and even dabbled on Wednesday nights about God’s role as the Director. I have really enjoyed this analogy and fun to read it when others use it too. So the question that is continually asked is what does the Director do, what I mean by that is, does he react to the actors or guide the actors through the scene.
I have touched on this a few times, how has prayer changed? Should it have changed? Was there a request for change? Chew on that for a bit, does your picture match the story?
Prophets had a very specific role, prophets have a very specific role. So let’s drop the “telling the future” thing. Speaking for YHVH with the authority and power of YHVH. They did/do as the Director says, really kind of simple. Simple does not in anyway mean fun or easy, just single focus, ask Jonah about it some day.
I’ll say it again, and probably many times in the future. Read the story and see the brilliance and depth of His story. That He loved the world so much, an undeserving world, that he allowed His Son to be an Atonement for us (hey guess what, that is an OT story). So let’s just do what the Director tells, oh and on cue might be nice…
