WHAT IS A PROPHET? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MAJOR AND A MINOR PROPHET?
WHAT IS A PROPHET?
A prophet is the seer, someone who speaks by divine inspiration; somebody who interpret the will of God.
In the spoken word, “Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever” which was preached in 1956-0225, The prophet said,
“100. Come, sister dear, do you believe me to be God’s prophet–or His servant? What is a prophet? Someone who sees, foretells, a seer, is that right? The Bible said in the last days that this would take place, didn’t it? If God will let me know what you’re here for, will you believe it and accept with all your heart? With all your heart you believe it?”
Also in the spoken word 58-0928M The Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
189 Starting from “Now, first apostles; second, prophets. What is a prophet? A seer”. Not one who makes out–not a apostle who makes out like he’s a missionary, stays home, but one who really is a missionary, an apostle. A prophet, a seer…”
60 0724 the Unchangeable word of God
98 “What is a prophet? Is a witness to foretell, to show a vindication that he is a diviner of the Divine Word. The Word of God came to the prophets. Look that down and find out that’s not right”.
63- 1115 THE WORLD IS FALLING APART, The Prophet gave examples
“ And God keeps His promise. He never fails to keep His promise in all ages. When the world was falling apart, in the time of Noah, God sent them a mighty prophet. What did they do with it? Turn it down. What is a prophet? The one the Word comes to, is the Word of God again. In the time of–of Noah, they sent it. In Moses’ time, the whole system was falling apart, they sent a prophet. In Elijah’s time, the whole system was falling apart, they sent a prophet. Every time, when the world gets in this chaos, they send a prophet. And then at this first Christmas, He sent the Word in Its fulness, see, the Word! A portion of the Word in a prophet, prophet had the Message for that age, and he went forth”.
Also in the spoken ,1963-1129 SUPER SIGN
“And a seer was the one who had the interpretation of the written Word, and he foresaw things that was to come. And when he spoke of the things that was to come, and proved that he was a seer, then he knowed. They knowed he had the right interpretation of the Scripture, because God, through him, manifested the written Scripture for that day. Amen. Don’t be slothful. Wake up! That was the plain identification, a seer, a forth-teller and a teller-forth. And the only way that they knowed he was getting the right interpretation to the Scripture, because what he said come to pass. Then they knowed he was called of God, God said that. And then they noticed that it did, it come right back in continuity with the Word for that day”.
I THINK THE DIFFERENT BETWEEN THE MAJOR PROPHET AND MINOR PROPHET IS, THE MAJOR PROPHET IS A PROPHET OF THE AGE WHILE A MINOR PROPHET IS THAT PROPHET THAT CAN BE FOUND IN THE FIVE-FOLD MINISTRY, WHO WORKS WITH TEACHERS, APOSTLES, EVANGELISTS AND PASTORS.HOWEVER, THE MAJOR PROPHET IS THE REVEALER OF THE WORD FOR THE WHOLE AGE WHILE THE MINOR PROPHET IS THE REVEALER OF THE THINGS THAT ARE HAPPENING IN A LOCAL CHURCH. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE MAJOR AND THE MINOR IS THAT, THEY ARE ALL BORN PROPHETS, BUT ONE IS BORN FOR THE WHOLE AGE AND THE OTHER ONE IS BORN FOR THE EDIFICATION OF THE LOCAL MINISTRY.
640816 PROVING HIS WORD , The prophet is showing us that everything that a minor prophet says, it must be under the prophet of the AGE.
111. And he sent his general, Joshua, which was a prophet, so he sent a minor prophet under Moses. And Joshua listened to Moses. And they sent him out, so he said, “Go over and spy that land out.”
1951-0929 Our Hope is in God.
Paragraph. 9. Starting from “There never was in the age, any two major prophets on the earth at one time. There were many minor prophets, but there were one major prophet. And Elijah was the prophet until Elisha came. Then when Elijah was taking off, a portion, double portion, of Elijah’s Spirit, Elijah’s Spirit came upon Elisha”
GOD BLESS YOU !!!
