Some Introduction Documents have been prepared if a better understanding of the definition of a “Prophet” is desired:













The “Prophet” was a normal human man.  Normal in the sense that he was not a supernatural being.  He was a man given a message from God.  The message being intended for a nation or a particular king or individual.  These were men who saw events through the eyes of man as we as humans do.


However, they were also given prophecies related to the future.  Often the future that they were told about was not a period that the Prophet would live to see in his lifetime.  These Prophets wrote and spoke what they were given by God, even if it was regarding events and things they could not see with their physical eyes, but were seeing with the spirit as God gave them the blessed opportunity to do so.


Prophets often saw events that occurred in the future.  They were not always told the sequence of those events.  Their writings would convey the information as they were told, often moving forward and back in time.  However, the events are always future to the day that the Prophet is writing in. Some Prophets saw the Second Coming of the Messiah even though they had not lived yet to see His First coming!  Some wrote details of both events.


Clarence Larkin in the early 1900’s depicted this in this excellent diagram.
