Ezra...stood on a platform...which they had made for the purpose.” Ne 8:4 NKJV

 

PLATFORM

Standing on a specially built platform within Jerusalem's newly built walls, Ezra the scribe read God's Word to the people for six hours. As he read it they wept, worshipped, and went home rejoicing. Think: God's Word is so powerful that all you have to do is expose people to it and their lives are changed. Notice the words, “Ezra...stood on a platform...they had made for the purpose.” When the printing press was invented, one of the first books produced was the Bible. It gave birth to the Reformation, influenced the Industrial Revolution, and changed the world. Now fast-forward to the age of the internet. Today he have a “platform” capable of reaching every level of society, all the way to the most remote corners of the earth. Instead of complaining about garbage on the internet, become an Internet evangelist, teacher, counselor, or encourager. Don't let the Enemy monopolize it! “Those who turn many to righteousness [will shine] like the starts forever and ever” (Da 12:3 NKJV). A geologist-turned-missionary was asked by a large oil company to go to work for them in the country where he ministered. His annual salary would be more than he'd make in his entire lifetime as a missionary. But he said no. When they asked, “Isn't the salary big enough?” he replied, “The salary's big enough; the job isn't!” Jesus said, “When I have been lifted...I will draw all people toward me” (Jn 12:32 GWT). And we have been given a platform to reach the world—lets use it!
