Bible reading: Num. 12:6-8.

Memory Verse: “And by a prophet the Lord made Israel come up out of Egypt, and by a prophet he was kept safeHosea 12:13 (BBE).

In a general sense, a prophet is a person who speaks God’s truth to others. The English word “prophet” comes from the Greek word “Prophétés”, which means “one who speaks forth” or “advocate”. Prophets are also called “seers,” because of their spiritual insight or their ability to “see” the future.

A prophet is a God’s messenger. He is God’s mouthpiece whom God speaks through. He is God’s vessel that passed His message to people. In the Bible, prophets often had both a teaching and revelatory role. They declare God’s truth on contemporary issues while also revealing details about the future.

Isaiah’s ministry, for example, revealed both the present and the future. He preached boldly against the corruption of his day (Isa. 1:4) and delivered grand visions of the future of Israel (Isa. 25:8).

More than 133 named prophets are mentioned in the Bible, including 16 women. In addition, numerous people prophesied, such as the 70 elders of Israel (Num. 11:25) and the 100 prophets rescued by Obadiah (1 Kings18:4). The first named prophet in the Bible is Abraham (Gen.20:7).

The early church also includes prophets. For example, Ananias was given a prophecy about the Apostle Paul’s future (Acts 9:10–18). Acts 21:9 mentions four daughters of Philip who could prophesy. Prophecy is listed as a spiritual gift in 1Cor. 12 and 14.

Quote: Your mouth is an asset as a Prophet, use it cautiously.

Prophetic Word: May God find you suitable to be His mouthpiece in your generation, in Jesus name.
