This study will look at the different uses the Lord has for prophecy, the role of the prophet, the character of a
true Biblical prophet, how the ministry of prophecy differs from the gift of prophecy, the misuse of prophecy
and what the Lord thinks about false prophets. Many people think that prophecies only contain predictions
about the future but that is not correct. One use of prophecy is to tell us through a prophet about the distant
past. Prophecy can be used to encourage, exhort, rebuke, warn, to show us what to expect in the future;
both good and bad, to explain God’s judgements, to make His will clear, to tell us all about His creative
power and to explain the way all mankind were created; things we would never have known about, if the
Lord had not spoken through the prophets.
