The Mark of a True Prophet: Holy Fear

Speaking of the vision that Ezekiel sees by the river Chebar in Babylon (Ezek 1-3):
This was the setting for his commission to prophesy, and from it he carried with him through the whole of his ministry a sense of awe and holy fear. It is the true prophet's hallmark in every generation.

The false prophet can chatter glibly about God, because he has never met Him. The man of God comes out from His presence indelibly marked with the glory of his Lord.
—John B. Taylor, Ezekiel, 41.
