Throughout this series if the solitary word prophet is used it is meant to include both the male prophet and the female prophetess whose roles as mouthpieces for God are interchangeable.

The prophet or prophetess is often viewed as some impersonal reproducer of the God inspired message but in actuality, they participate in the act and personally respond to the message that is being communicated by God. Prophets are not mere mouthpieces they are people. They are not just instruments, but vessels used of God, vessels with a hearts and emotions both of which are effected by what they hear and see.

For the prophet the overwhelming impact of the Divine Pathos upon their mind and heart can grip their personality in such depth that it seems at times to almost completely absorb them. There is an unrelieved distress to some degree that comes from involvement with conveying the Word of God. Therefore, the prophet should not be thought of as someone who must be dispassionate in order to be effective.

For the prophet the focal point for their understanding of God is God’s Word and their experience with God. The prophet or prophetess not only lives his or her personal life, they also live God’s life insomuch as they hear God’s voice and feel His heart. The prophet tries to impart the Pathos and Rhema Word of God together with the Logos Word of God. At times the prophet’s soul overflows, thus he or she speaks as they do out of the richness of their sympathy with God and the people.

If there is a disagreement between God or God’s Truth and man the prophet will always take God’s side, thus the results at times can be little understanding from the prophet for the weakness of man. The prophet shares an emotional solidarity with God.

The prophet shares God’s heart in reconciling the tenderness of Divine love with Divine punishment or justice. Love does not ignore evil, sin, and wickedness. The Lord Jesus loves His people but He also has a passionate love for right, justice, and holiness and a burning hatred for wrong, injustice and ungodliness. Hence, we see the prophet exhibit similar feelings that must be controlled and regulated according to Christian agape love and in balance with the Will of God.

I wish to remind the readers that these are not simply my own beliefs this series is a collection of agreed upon beliefs by many respected servants of God, highly versed in this topic.

 

 

Spiritual/Political Disclaimer:

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ’s Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
