Friday, 18th August 2017 – The Prophet and His Mandate!

“Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.” – Jonah 1:1-2

Jonah was a Prophet called by God to preach salvation to the people of Nineveh. I wonder why God didn’t call him to prophesy. This means that the ministry of the Prophet is not limited to only the gift of prophesy, but to preach or teach as well.

John the Baptist was a major prophet; Jesus called him MORE THAN A PROPHET (Matthew 11:9). Yet, he preached Christ or salvation. “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matt. 3:1-2)

I believe there is more to the office of a Prophet than what we seem to think. It’s not only about seeing visions and giving prophesies. A Prophet is first of all, called to preach or teach. Unfortunately, this is not what we see in our generation today. There are some prophets who only major on prophecies. They seem to know more about the spirit realm, but very little about the word of God.
