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.

Since the prophets see the world through the eyes of God, they perceive the world in terms of justice or injustice. When it comes to acts of ritual or things of beauty both, when associated with injustice, become an abomination to the prophets. You must remember that the prophet’s preoccupation with injustice and the passion with which they condemn injustice is rooted in their sympathy with God, as they have a divine understanding of God’s heart.

Prophets simply proclaim God’s concern for justice. Divine concern is at the heart of, and the key ingredient, in prophecy. Morality, especially prophetic morality, derives from the Truth that God demands morality and thus prophecy fulfilled is the realization of God’s concern over a moral matter.

The great dilemma is that what seems rational to the prophets seems irrational to the men and women steeped in sin, immorality, worldliness, carnality, and/or denial. Prophets can be some of the best and the worst people you would ever want to know depending on your moral health and your devotion to 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.
