As eccentrics, we prophetic people ask questions about life and faith that do not seem to matter to others and, in pondering these questions, we often find ourselves off in a dream world somewhere while the rest of the world passes us by. We look for answers in places others never seem to consider, and we seek the deep meaning of things others seem to accept at face value. We find ourselves incapable of settling for anything that strikes us as shallow. The quest often consumes so much of our awareness that we seem disconnected, even aloof, from other people. Life seems to hold a different set of meanings for us. Because of this lack of common perspective, people sometimes have trouble relating to us as friends and peers, while we, in turn, have trouble relating to them. For instance, when all that matters to me is the spiritual significance of the next natural disaster, it can become difficult to join others in their excitement over last Sunday’s victory for the local professional football team, when in truth I would be healthier and a more balanced human being if I could join others in their excitement.

Ministering by their anointing and the leading of the Holy Spirit, they will pronounce judgments upon the opponents of Christ and His gospel, such as Paul did by proclaiming blindness upon Ely-mas, the sorcerer. They will prophesy great changes in nature and the nations. They will accurately predict earthquakes, tidal waves and other catastrophes of nature.

… to respect and honor the pastoral headship of the local church. He is the gatekeeper of that flock of sheep. The pastor has the responsibility before God as to what he does with that word. If he knows it is of God then he must get the wisdom of God concerning when, where and how to deliver that prophetic word to the church….
How that by REVELATION He made known to me the MYSTERY (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the MYSTERY OF CHRIST), which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now BEEN REVEALED by the Spirit to His holy APOSTLES and PROPHETS (Eph. 3:3-5, NKJV).
— The Old Testament prophets were an extension and expression of the heart and mind of God. The New Testament prophets are an extension and expression of Jesus Christ, the Son of God who is the same as His Father. Jesus, the Son of God, and God the Father are not two separate Gods with different traits, attributes, attitudes and character. Jesus said that He and His Father are one, which means They are identical in every area of Their being.
— So why do some teachers declare that the New Testament prophets are different from the Old Testament prophets? The prophets are the same as the one eternal God whom they represent. Jesus was declared to be the Prophet of God; that is, the expression of the heart and mind of God.
