Naturally, one can hardly expect a sermon on Micaiah [who stood up against the 400 false prophets of Israel] to be ...popular....
If such a prospect [one who would be like Micaiah] is reading this, God bless you. The odds will be four hundred to one, the diet may be bread and water, and the orders are: "...what the Lord saith unto me, that will I speak"... [but] get ready for trouble! You will be despised... [and] hated....You will report to Heavenly Headquarters and get your orders from the Main Office...[so] think it over. You had better mean business, else your ministry will be pathetic instead of prophetic. --Vance Havner
