Prophets?! Are they important???

Well, God has always used prophets as a way to communicate with His people. He says in Amos 3:7 “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” The Holy Spirit knows the secret things of God. The doesn’t only refer to Him as the Holy Spitit or Ghost but also the Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of Prophecy. He speaks to us the words of Christ. In John 16:13, Jesus says, “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” So if we reject the prophet of God we are rejecting Jesus. More than that the last day people of God (saints) have two destinctive characteristics- Rev 14:12- they keep the commandments and have the faith of Jesus. Revelation 19:10 tells us that the Faith of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.

So if you consider yourself a Christian you must adhere to the Spirit of Prophecy… but which prophet?

Study for yourself.
