The prophets took steps, and Jesus walked in them. (Luke 13:33)
What they experienced, He experienced. (Acts 8:34-35)
They told His story, long before He lived it. (Romans 1:1-5; 16:25-27)
If we obey Him, our experiences will be like those of the prophets. (Matthew 5:11-12)
If we obey Him, our ministry will be greater than theirs for he who is the least in the kingdom of God is greater than they. (Matthew 11:7-11)
It is not that we are greater than they of whom the world was not worthy, but that the revelation of the Lord which we have been granted to give is greater than what they had. God is fully revealed through Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:10-13)
Study the prophets. Their path is our path.
