Prophets and Prophecy
A prophet is basically a spokesman for Yahweh / Allah, hence a person chosen by the
Most High to speak to people on Yahweh‘s
behalf and convey a message or teaching.Prophets were role models of holiness, scholarship and closeness to Yahweh. They setthe standards for the entire community.The Hebrew word for a prophet,
comes from the term nivsefatayim meaning
"fruit of the lips,"
which emphasizes the prophet's role as a speaker.
―Hear now My words: If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make Myself
known unto him in a vision, and will
speak unto him in a dream.‖ Num. 12:6.
―Hear now My words: If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make Myselfknown unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.‖ Num. 12:6.
This statement explains the operation of what the Scriptures elsewhere call ―the gift ofprophecy.‖ 1 Cor. 13:2. It also explains the following scripture: ―The prophecy came not
in old time by the will of man: but holy men of Elohim spake as they were moved bythe Holy Spirit
.‖ 2 Peter 1:21.
