In the same way, the people of God are His ambassadors on the earth. Scripture clearly teaches this. God chose Moses to deliver the Israelites from slavery in Egypt and then to represent Himself before them. Prophets represented God and spoke His messages of warning and judgment to a nation that had turned away from Him. In 2nd Corinthians 5:20, Paul writes:
Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.
(2 Corinthians 5:20)
As ambassadors of heaven, we represent our Father's Kingdom here on Earth. If we are to be effective, it is imperative that we understand what we are talking about.
