What is a Prophet?
A prophet is called by God to speak for Him and be His messenger. He receives word from God for His people that include revelations, prophecies, and teachings. A prophet may also write down the word of God which is called a scripture. It is indeed that we all have an access to God through prayers and the Holy Bible, but there are further words and commands from God that we do not know that only prophets were given these tasks for His people.
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and from, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
We have been told by our parents, teachers, church ministries and above all the Holy Scripture tells us about the Fall of Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:1-5). This made us detached from the presence of God the day when Eve responded to Satan’s temptation. God loves us much and desires us to come back to Him. He wants us to walk with him by keeping His teachings and do the righteous deeds. He also chose his prophets to be His voice, to receive His message and reveal it to mankind about His Salvation. Prophets brings encouragement to be righteous, hope and faith to humanity that God will return to save us.
What is Prophecy?
Prophecy is uttering the message of God for a specific time. It is called a divinely inspired utterance or revelation. Thus, a prophet in the bible refers to a spokesperson of God. It simply means that a person who speaks words that are not from God is called a ‘false prophet’ or a prophet of another god.
A person with gift of prophecy may receive messages in several ways such as visions, dreams, wisdom, judgment and operation of any special gift like teaching, coaching or preaching God’s message.
In biblical times, prophets foreseen the future, enlightened and comforted the un-hopeful, condemned sinful acts, and advocated actions to priests, rulers as well as warned of judgment.
As claimed by a thorough study of the hundreds of relevant text reveals that biblical prophets rarely speak about future events or what will inevitably happen, but more frequently they communicate several kinds of messages on behalf of God, transmitting God’s interpretation of the past, present, and future aspects of people’s lives.
Who can have the gift of Prophecy?
Anyone can have this gift of prophecy. Whether you are a pastor, an evangelist, or a teacher, can have and use this gift to whatever office they exercise in the church. The office of the prophet is established to provide enduring guidance from a person that the church acknowledges as owning a gift of prophecy. This prophet can endure to provide guidance as long as the church recognizes him as a reliable prophet with wisdom and possess the spiritual gifts to exercise his gift properly.
Pastors, evangelists, and other church leaders who have a gift of prophecy must apply discernment to any message as a word from God and must correct those people who speak a false word.
