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.

A common theme since I started this series has been comments to the effect of, ‘Thank you so much for this series, I now understand my spouse so much better. It has been hard to connect with how they think and their passions but this series has helped me understand them in a deeper way.’

I thank you for your comments and I encourage each one of you who has a prophet or prophetess for a spouse to pray fervently and often for your spouse. They need your love and prayers daily in order to continue in their call. Also, if your spouse is new to their call or for whatever reason they lack full understanding of their call please encourage them to read this series; the better they understand their call the better they will understand themselves and the greater their peace will be.

Now to continue…

By God revealing His Word to the people through the prophets, He is acting to exemplify justice. One of the purposes of prophecy is to be one of the tools God uses to maintain His covenant with His people and to establish and/or keep right relationships between Himself (God) and man.

Because the prophet has such a profound awareness of injustice this drives them in what appears to be their endless preoccupation with justice and righteousness. Prophets have no remorse about unveiling injustice and oppression whether the oppression and injustice be motivated by political, social, or religious evils.

The presence of oppression and corruption is always uppermost in the prophet’s mind. The prophet’s urgency regarding justice is about aiding and saving the victims of oppression. Oppression and injustice angers a prophet extremely. God will often allow prophets to go through injustices of their own to deepen their understanding, empathy, and compassion for the problem and to expand their understand regarding just how much, and why, God hates injustice so much.

A prophet’s calling could be described in part as an advocate, activist, or champion who speaks for those who do not have their own voice with which to plead their case. Prophets often run interference dealing with wrongs imposed on other people; this can happen to the degree that they might be viewed as interfering in matters that are not their responsibility. Prophets will step in and intervene in a situation even when they have not been asked to do so or authorized to do so. They do this because they are not tolerant of the injustices and the wrongs done to other people and they actually identify with the suffering of another person to such a degree they can resent other peoples injuries as if they were their own.

Prophets call other people to be the champions, defenders, backers, advocates of …

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.
