root out, to pull down, to destroy and to throw down—but also to build and to plant

Jeremiah knew that his ministry would be intensely painful. He was called to root out, to pull down, to destroy and to throw down—but also to build and to plant. Today, everybody expects his ministry to take off smoothly, without a hitch. They want to enlarge their ministry in a short span of six months. They could begin with a small group of twenty people, but within six months they would like to show that their ministry has expanded to a thousand! In other words, every ministry is eager to build and to plant, but nobody wants to first root out, pull down and to destroy. Remember, something worthwhile can only be built after there has been a tearing down. But who is willing to accept such a ministry? To root out, to pull down and to destroy is an unpopular way! It is only after things have been pulled down and rooted-out that something after the mind of God can be built! It is easy to build a ministry on the lines of man’s designs for it will not attract any opposition, reproach or rejection. Saints, many things are happening in Christendom, but God is looking for a body in the earth, a people who will be a prophetic voice in this age.
