Five Fold Ministry - The Prophet

The prophet is the pointer finger on the hand of God. They point the direction we should go by sharing the heart of God with the church. Through the prophet, God guides and protects His church. They are, along with the Apostles, indeed a part of the church's foundation.

Eph. 2:20
20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone,

The Prophets and Apostles are gifted to bring revelation knowledge to the church. By this I mean, through the prophets and apostles God shines a light on the scriptures in a way not seen before. It will be exactly what God wants the church to understand for the present hour.

Eph. 3:2-5 explains:
2 if indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you. 3 how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already, 4 by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), 5 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:

Indeed, through the prophets we not only have spiritual 20/20 vision, but physically also both as individuals and the body of Christ we receive direction as well.

2 Chr. 20:20 is an example of how an Old Testament King looked at the prophets.
20 So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, "Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper."

PROPHETS REBUKE THE CHURCH

A less received attribute of the prophets is the fact that they are used of God to point out the sin in the church, as well as in the lives of individuals! Cracks that will eventually cause the foundation of a work to crumble and split, or even bring to a halt a congregation's walk with God, are exposed by the prophets. No-one likes to be rebuked however, so often the prophet is not the most popular office.

Amos 5:10 tells us:
10 They hate the one who rebukes in the gate, and they abhor the one who speaks uprightly.

God confronts sin through His prophets as well as the powers and principalities causing the sin. Prophets, as well as Apostles, are powerful prayer warriors.

Many times prophets are ridiculed and called false prophets because God's ways are not our ways. The counsel of the prophet may seem foreign to human thinking, and even the doctrines they bring forth may sound different from what was taught and understood by the church in the past. But, they bring fresh manna to God's people through the rhema word and their direction is straight from the heart of God for now. As always the old wineskins will have problems as the light of God exposes a new understanding on truth or gives directions not used before. Over the years Prophets have been burned, beaten, put in prison and run out of town by people that thought they did God a service by getting rid of them.
