There are many prophets in the old testament that had a significant impact in spreading the word of God. I will discuss them and the message they provided to the people of their time. The first prophet I will talk about is Elijah. Elijah was an significant prophet who lived during the ninth century B. C. during the reigns of Ahab in the northern kingdom of Israel. Elijah shaped the history of his day and dominated Hebrew thinking for centuries afterward. Elijah's prophetic activities emphasized the unconditional loyalty to God required of the nation of Israel. Elijah had conflicting views and did not accept standards of his day, when belief in many gods was normal. He appears in the role of God's instrument of judgment upon a wayward Israel because of the nation's widespread idolatry.
Elisha, whose name in Hebrew means “God is Salvation,” was an Israelite prophet and disciple of Elijah. Elisha is described as a miracle worker, he is known for healing the sick and reviving the dead. Elisha was also involved in politics. Elisha’s message was to those in charge that they should turn back to traditional religious practices and acknowledge God’s absolute power over every aspect of life, personal as well as political. When he healed the sick, it was to demonstrate God’s power over life and death. When he helped in battle, it was to demonstrate God’s power over nations and kingdoms. Elijah had a much friendlier relationship then his mentor when it involved political authorities. Amos was a resident of the southern kingdom, his message was directed to Israel, particularly to its leading cities of Bethel and Samaria. The message of Amos is one of disapproval and judgment. The whole area of Israel is to suffer punishment for its evil. The immorality of these nations is seen in the sins with which they are charged. The Ammonites are condemned "because they have ripped up women with child in Gilead that they might enlarge their border (1:13); doom is promised to the Moabites because their taste for revenge was so strong that they burned to lime the bones of the king of Edom (2:1).” The Israelites were warned that the only course which they can follow to avert the imminent disaster is to seek the Lord and to "let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream" (5:24). Throughout Amos prophecy one can recognize his persistent conviction that sin will not go unpunished and that the righteousness of God will ultimately triumph.
Hosea message to his followers is that God is a loving God whose loyalty to his covenant people is solid. Even though many people of Israel continue turning to false gods, God’s dedicated love is represented in the suffering faithful husband to his unfaithful wife. Hosea’s message is also one of warning to those who would turn their backs on God’s love. Through the symbolic presentation of the marriage of Hosea and Gomer, God’s love for the nation of Israel is displayed in a metaphor in the themes of sin, judgment, and forgiving love.
Isaiah's calling as a prophet was mainly to the nation of Judah and to Jerusalem, Isaiah urged the people to repent their sins and return to God. God warned them through Isaiah, but they ignored his message. Isaiah predicted the demise and captivity of Judah. He also predicted the coming of the Messiah and the salvation of the Lord. Many of his prophesies predicted events that occurred in Isaiah's near future, yet at the same time they foretold the events of the distant future, such as the coming of the Messiah along with some events still to come in the last days such as the second coming of Christ. The message of the prophet Micah is a complex blend of judgment and hope. On the one hand, the prophecies announce judgment upon Israel for social evils, corrupt leadership and idolatry. This judgment was expected to conclude in the destruction of Samaria and Jerusalem. However, the book proclaims that not merely the renewal of the nation, but the conversion and acclamation of Israel and Jerusalem. The messages of hope and doom are not necessarily conflicting, however, since restoration and transformation take place only after judgment.
Zephaniah's message of judgment and inspiration contains three major principles. God is sovereign over all nations. Zephaniah also says the sinner and evil in the world will be punished while the moral and good people will be vindicated on the day of judgment. His third principle said God blesses those who repent and trust in Him.
Judgment is one of the main message in Jeremiah's writings, though he was careful to point out that remorse, if sincere, would postpone the otherwise inevitable. His advice not to rebel against Babylon marked him as a true patriot, a man who loved his own people too much to stand by silently and watch them destroy themselves. By warning them to submit and not rebel, Jeremiah was revealing God's will to them. Jeremiah records the final prophecies to Judah, he warns that if the nation does not repent that destruction will come. Jeremiah call for the nation to turn back to God. Jeremiah recognizes the certainty of Judah’s destruction due to its immorality. Jeremiah loved Judah, but he loved God much more. As painful as it was for Jeremiah to deliver a consistent message of judgment to his own people, Jeremiah was obedient to what God told him to do and say. Jeremiah hoped and prayed for mercy from God for Judah, but also trusted that God was good, just, and righteous.
Ezekiel message to his follower through his prophetic ministry, he attempted to bring them to immediate repentance and to confidence in the distant future. He taught that God works through human messengers and even in defeat and despair God's people need to affirm God's sovereignty. He spread the message the people must obey God if they expect to receive his blessings and that the Kingdom of God will come for them.
Second Isaiah develops the theme of holiness into a theoretical assertion of monotheism. Second Isaiah announces that the Lord in the only deity. This differs from earlier prophets that had been practical monotheists who never spoke of the Lord as “God”. However Second Isaiah did agree with the first prophets that the lords blessing extended to all nations.
Third Isaiah does not exhibit the same consist style and theme as the first and second Isaiah did. Instead Third Isaiah was probably an anthology within anthology. Which would have been an collection of prophecies of the Isaiah school that was produced after 515 B.C.E. It envisioned a “new heaven and earth”.

Prophet

...الله ابن عبد المطلب ابن هاشم), was a man from Meccawho unified Arabia into a single religious polity under Islam. Believed byMuslims and Bahá'ís to be a messenger and prophet of God, Muhammad is almost universally considered by Muslims as the last prophet sent by God to mankind. While non-Muslims regard Muhammad as the founder of Islam, Muslims consider him to have restored the unalteredoriginal monotheistic faith of Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, andother prophets. Muslims discuss Muhammad and other prophets of Islam with reverence, adding the phrase peace be upon him whenever their names are mentioned. Born in about 570 CE in the Arabian city of Mecca,Muhammad was orphaned at an early age; he was raised under the care of his paternal uncle Abu Talib. After his childhood Muhammad primarily worked as a merchant.Occasionally he would retreat to a cave in the mountains for several nights of seclusion and prayer; later, at age 40, he reported at this spot, that he was visited by Gabriel and received his first revelationfrom God. Three years after this event Muhammad started preachingthese revelations publicly, proclaiming that "God is One", that complete "surrender" (lit. islām) to Him is the only way (dīn)acceptable to God, and that he was a prophet and messenger of God, in the same vein asother Islamic prophets. Muhammad gained few followers early on, and met hostility from some Meccan tribes. To escape persecution, Muhammad sent some of his followers to Abyssinia before......

What Is a Prophet

...They spread the word of God to the people in hopes of them obeying God’s will. Whether the audience wants to obey God or not is their choice, but the prophet had no choice but to comply. Ultimately prophets are spokesperson for God but have the same authority as God. Those who did not listen to the prophet’s word would then be judged by God. To distinguish a true prophet was easy because they had to be an Israelite, which eliminated any foreigners from pretending they were one. A prophet was to be a mediator between God and people. He or she would deliver God’s message to the people. If there were any questions or concerns then the prophet would relay the message to God. Other nations had prophets sent by God as well but could not be called true prophets because they were not of Israel descent. An example of such a prophet is Balaam. Balaam came from Mesopotamia and was very famous for his prophesies. “God used him to prophesy what God wanted him to say rather than what he was paid to say.” (Williams 693) This shows that although Balaam is not considered a prophet in the Old Testament, he, who was not an Israelite, was still used to spread God’s message. The prophets would warn the people of God’s wrath if they remained unfaithful and did not stop the corruption they were causing. Even during God’s judgment, He would send prophets such as Ezekiel, to teach them why God had punished them and what they can do to get back into God’s good graces. It is hard to compress the......

The Prophet Habakkuk

...“The Prophet Habakkuk” Ruby A. Jones Bethel University Old Testament REL 111 Sherry Henson March 25, 2013 “Historical background for The Prophet Habakkuk” Habakkuk’s name means “Embrace” and he was the eighth Prophet of the Minor Prophets. He was Prophet to the Southern Kingdom (Judah) who wrote his book around 600 B.C. Some may call Habakkuk the questioning Prophet because he questioned God’s wisdom. Habakkuk was confused, but unique because he questioned God’s wisdom without being punished. God did not mind Habakkuk’s concerns and was gracious enough to answer him. Habakkuk saw many sins that Israel and other nations were committing and was greatly concerned. Therefore he complained to God. “Summary and Analysis of The Prophet Habakkuk” I believe that Habakkuk was a man of God because he was very concerned about the wrong doings of the people of Judah. He could not understand why God was not punishing them for their sins. Habakkuk complained to God about the violence, wickedness, destruction, iniquity, perversion, strife, contention, and justice not being upheld. Habakkuk thought God was not doing anything about the people sinning, and was not concerned about man, but God reassured him that the people would not go unpunished. When God finally told Habakkuk what was to come he questioned God’s wisdom. I believe this is why He did not tell Habakkuk his plans right away, because He knew......

The Prophets: Enforcing the Covenant in Israel

...In our chapter reading from Fee and Stuart, "The Prophets: Enforcing the Covenant in Israel," the authors discussed the nature and key characteristics of the prophetic genre. As we can see, many of the problems readers encounter as they engage this segment of Scripture occur because they do not understand the nature or function of prophecy in ancient Israel. Taking that portion of our reading into consideration, summarize the key aspects of the genre. Be sure to include aspects of their hermeneutical suggestions in your summary thread as well. The Prophets: Enforcing the Covenant in Israel In order to understand prophecy, it is important to realize that prophecy does not pertain to what may occur in our future but that which was to occur in the future of the people of the Old Testament. A Prophet was not one who spoke to God but an individual who presented God’s word to His people. There are two types of prophets; Major and Minor Prophets. The terms do not assert one’s importance over another, they were merely utilized to identify longer books/messages and were often not in any chronological order. The function of prophecy in Israel can be broken down into four basics thought. “1. The prophets were covenant enforcement mediators.” (Stuart, 2003) “2. The prophets’ message was not their own, but God’s.” (Stuart, 2003) “3. The prophets were God’s direct representatives.” (Stuart, 2003) “4. The prophets’ message is unoriginal. The meaning is that of God but the wording and......

Time Line Essay of the Prophets

...Timeline Essay of the Prophets Grand Canyon University BIB 351 12/11/2011   After having done a great deal of studying of Old Testament passages about the prophets I will explain what a prophet is, how God worked with them and who they were. God stopped talking openly to people after Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden, He then chose specific individuals through whom He would communicate. The prophet must be able to hear the voice of God and bring God’s words to the world. All prophecy will be “as the Spirit gives utterance” (Acts 2:4). In the ministry of a prophet, a called prophet speaks the message the Lord gives him. The first time the word “prophet” is used in the Bible is in the days of Abraham (Gen. 20:7). Each prophet had a specific message for the people of Israel from God. Some messages were warnings to Israel's about punishment if they continued to sin, others were about God's efforts to reconcile himself with Israel after a period of punishment, and prophecies about Israel and the nations it interacted with. Major Prophets of the Old Testament Isaiah’s period of prophecy was from 740 to 680 B.C. Isaiah is most often thought of as the greatest of the Old Testament prophets of the Bible. Isaiah prophesied about Israel's judgment and reconciliation with God, the coming savior Christ, and judgment of nations, and the end times. Jeremiah's ministry was from 630 - 585 B.C. In his writing he prophesized of the Israelites’ exile to Babylon, the fall of......

Doomsday 2012: Prophets or Profits

...DOOMSDAY 2012: PROHETS OR PROFITS FINAL Kimesha K. Sanders Western Governors University DOOMSDAY 2012: PROPHETS OR PROFITS Ever since the beginning of time people have been obsessed with the concept of the end of days. So if there is one topic that can create a good conversation, it’s the “Apocalypse”. In our times, we get more than our share of talk about the apocalypse. An apocalypse is a revelation, an unveiling or unfolding of things not previously known and which could not be known apart from the unveiling (wikipedia.org). This means that no one could possibly know when this event will occur. Still, for thousands of years people have tried to predict when and how the world will end. From where do all these apocalyptic prophecies originate? Are we the victims of the hidden agendas of the media and secret societies? Are modern interpretations of ancient Mayan calendars and prophecies accurate; and do these prophecies predict the end of the world in 2012? And what has NASA said about all of this? When it comes to apocalyptic or “end of the world” prophecies it doesn’t matter. “End of the world” prophecies are ridiculous. We can’t rely on people, books, internet sites or movies to tell us an exact date because it is clearly something of the unknown? People are using prophets for profits! Apocalyptic prophecies derive from the stories told about the death of Jesus Christ and his ascension from the grave. It was said that He would one day return....

Prophets

...To many Christians the Prophets are seen as being predictors of the Messiah, but it can be argued that one can take any tidbit of information from a source (not just the bible) and use it, whether within context or out of context, to support one’s argument. In my opinion, as far as the prophets are concerned, just because the prophets seem to predict the coming of the Messiah because of the parallels that have been drawn between the books of the prophets and the New Testament does not necessarily mean that they were able to predict the future—it means that the New Testament authors such as Matthew had either heard or could refer back to the writings of the Old Testament prophets such as Isaiah, Micah, and Hosea. The problem is not that the authors of the New Testament were trying to build a bridge to the old; the problem is that over time the people have come to think like Borg did in his period of “pre critical naïveté” that “the prophets were supernaturally inspired predictions of Jesus”. For me, the skeptic, it seemed all too convenient that the Old and New Testaments would match up so well in the seemingly never ending series of predictions and fulfillment; almost like the Nostradamus nonsense that you hear about on the History Channel. I wondered what it was that made people make this jump, this connection. That’s when I read that this way of reading the prophets had been reinforced by the best selling book “Halley’s Bible Handbook” which dated back to 1924.......

Prophets

...Introduction The finest way of transforming today’s family standard to achieve its highest potential possible is through the means of effective educational system. Being freed from the oppression of illiteracy, gaining knowledge and skills, and a process of critical self-upgrading is the best art of building a progressive family. Pursuing adult learning as a community is one way of taking this advantage. Adult learning is the process where adults are engaged in systematic learning activities in order to gain new forms of knowledge, skills, attitudes, or values. Modern family is, a group of people affiliated by recognized birth by marriage, or co-residence, which is developed in the middle of the 20th century in a period of stability. This modern family is more like the USA or Switzerland families which or of social reconstruction after the second world war (as for other European countries). The effect of adult learning in this modern family is the way that adult learning can alter the communities’ culture as a whole through instilling into individuals the purpose of learning, readiness of learning and the motivation to learn. I believe the foundation of every perfect and progressive society is the success story of the families that exist with in. Everyone has a specific purpose in life; everyone’s task is unique as is his specific opportunity to accomplish that very mission. Humans by nature have different interests and passions on diverse kind of paradigm that planet......

The Prophets

...Liberti Todd BIBLE 105 September 28, 2014 Diligence and Laziness vs. Wisdom and Folly The believer is called to live a life that is above reproach. While that does not mean the believer will never stumble it does mean that the believer is to live life wisely. There should always be a difference between the lifestyle of a Christ follower and an unbeliever; the life of someone that has been transformed is not common but carful and consistent with their change. Evidence of thought plus attention to certain actions are what help the believer to stand out in the world, there is a call to diligence and wisdom as opposed to living life lazy and imprudent. Although there are similarities between diligence and wisdom, laziness and folly, there are differences as well; observing scripture and context each will be addressed in this essay. Solomon, the wisest man in the bible, was the author of the book of Proverbs. The book goes into great detail about the difference in outcome for the diligent and wise man compared to the lazy and foolish man.

Prophet Eesaa

...Prophet Eesaa While Maryam (Mary), may Allaah exalt her mention, was praying in her place of worship, an angel in the form of a man appeared before her. Filled with terror, she tried to flee, praying: {قَالَتْ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِالرَّ‌حْمَـٰنِ مِنكَ إِن كُنتَ تَقِيًّا . قَالَ إِنَّمَا أَنَا رَ‌سُولُ رَ‌بِّكِ لِأَهَبَ لَكِ غُلَامًا زَكِيًّا . قَالَتْ أَنَّىٰ يَكُونُ لِي غُلَامٌ وَلَمْ يَمْسَسْنِي بَشَرٌ‌ وَلَمْ أَكُ بَغِيًّا . قَالَ كَذَٰلِكِ قَالَ رَ‌بُّكِ هُوَ عَلَيَّ هَيِّنٌ ۖ وَلِنَجْعَلَهُ آيَةً لِّلنَّاسِ وَرَ‌حْمَةً مِّنَّا ۚ وَكَانَ أَمْرً‌ا مَّقْضِيًّا} 'Translation' {…'Indeed, I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, (so leave me), if you should be fearing of Allaah.'

He said: 'Thus (it will be); your Lord says: 'It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a matter (already) decreed.'} [Maryam:18-21].

Jesus and Mohammed

...Jesus and Mohammed 130 November 11, 2012 Chad Schuchmann Jesus and Mohammed In almost all religions there is a person or people that are considered saviors, half-god half-man, or heroes. For example, Hercules from ancient Greek mythology is a hero that is half-god and half man and is the son of Zeus the main Greek god. A lot of them seem to have similar life stories to one another. In this essay I will be discussing as well as comparing and contrasting the lives, deaths, and style of worship of Jesus Christ, the savior of Christianity, with the life of Mohammed, the prophet of Islam as well as the founder of Mohammedanism.

Jesus Christ was born in a stable at a place called Bethlehem. He was carried in the womb by a young Jewish virgin named Mary who was married to a man named Joseph. Angels announces his birth to shepherds and a unique star brought guided three wise men from far away to witness his birth and brought gifts for the child.
