What is a prophet?

A prophet is someone who hears things from God and shares it with others.  A prophet is a teacher of the will of God.

The first great prophet in the Bible was Moses. He spent many years in the desert.  Moses was a reluctant prophet.  At first he didn’t believe that God was talking to him.  He doubted.  He disagreed. And yet, Moses did believe and changed the history of the world.

You too could be a prophet.  First you must be open to it – it is not easy.  Next you need to listen to God.  It could happen.  Be ready.

 

Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.”

Mark 6:4
