Revelation 2:4-5, NIV:  Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place

Where are the prophets of God? Where are they who speak a truth that comes from God and pierces through the hearts of us all? Are they here among us? I wonder if they are. I wonder if they are written off as fanatics, overly spiritual, or simply crazy. If one of God’s prophets were among us, speaking truth into our lives, I wonder how well that truth would be received—especially if it was contrary to what we want for ourselves. If Moses, or Elijah were here, would they be heard? We would probably like to think that we would not treat the prophets as the people of their day. But do we do so now? Perhaps you know someone whose words penetrate and convict. Something in you does not understand or simply does not want to. Our sinful flesh fights against the truth of God; while Satan accuses the prophet as a liar, crazy, or fanatical. Consider if Jesus were here among us in the flesh, and said to His church, “Yet I hold this against you.” Would we repent and turn to Him—or would we turn away?
