The ministry of John the Baptist (Matt 3:1-3)




The duty of a prophet

Speak God’s truth to the people chosen by God

To foretell messages given by God regarding future events

To get the heart of the people right with God

To pray/intercede to God on behalf of the people

The reciting of hymns (possibly Philip’s daughters)




Who were the NT prophets? (Eph 4:11; 1 Cor 12:28)


Philip, Silas, Barnabas, Simon Niger, Stephen and others in history have been spoken of as being prophets of the NT



1 Cor 14:3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort.



Are there present day prophets?


Note: God ordained who the prophets would be
