Silencing the Prophetic Voiceby Harold Vaughan — 2 months ago
There are two types of preaching:
1. Preaching that "whitewashes sin" by failing to call it out in plain terms.
2. Preaching that "washes sin white" by unmasking its deceitfulness and proclaiming Christ's blood as its cure.
The second type of preaching can scarcely be found in any pulpit. But this was precisely the ministry given to the weeping prophet. Note carefully God's commission to Jeremiah...
"Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant" (Jer. 1:9-10).
