Potter and ClayJesus said,

“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”

John 14:16,17

One day I felt to go to visit a prophet in a certain city.  I used to have a shepherds staff and God told me to take it with me.  I knocked on his door and when he opened it he remarked “this must be serious, you have brought your staff.”

I went in a sat down and starting to chit chat about various things.  To be honest, I did not know exactly why I was there.  He wife sat next to him and, all of a sudden, I fixed my gaze on her and said, “you need the body of Christ!”  At that point I felt as if the Lord spoke through me.  I don’t remember much of what He said, but I do remember that, when finished, He repeated once again, “you need the body of Christ!”

Then, it was over.  I stood up, said goodbye and left.  In my car, driving home, I thought to myself, “wow, that was weird.”  Later that night I received a call from the prophets wife and she was crying.  “yes” she said, “I do need the body of Christ.”  Between sobs she continued, “My husband has been beating me and I was too afraid and embarrassed to reach out to anyone.  You were exactly right, I do need the body of Christ.” After that, the prophet repented and his wife went to live with a friend while they received marriage counseling.

God dwells within us and He will speak through us if we yield to His Spirit.  We all carry a treasure, His Spirit, within our earthen vessels and we need to be ready, willing, and able to allow Him pour out of us to bless others.  Prophets are people too and they, like all of us, make mistakes and need God to help them.  I am glad God was able to speak to His wife and I am also glad that my Father was able to bring His prophet to repentance so they could both receive help.  The next time God wants to speak through you simply let Him, even if you don’t know why, because you never know what good may come of it.
