It’s one of the most under appreciated gifts of God. Because when it is used, it stings the person receiving. Sometimes to the point of the person crying out in pain and anger. Do you know why the prophets lived in the woods and not in the cities? The people were afraid of what the prophets had to say. When Samuel went to Bethlehem to anoint David king, the first thing they asked him was, did you come in peace. Because they knew if he came with a message from God, it could be hell fire and damnation. The life of an exhorter isn’t easy. People will not like him. But it is part and parcel of God’s plan for us. The person who has this gift, must have a thick hide to be able to perform their task. But it’s necessary for the kingdom of God.
