Quote: Jim Elliot, 5

~ Prophet’s Role ~

Do you  know what a prophet does?

The following is an excerpt from a book.

“Now as a prophet Jesus Christ comes to do two things. All of you have heard before of that meaning of a prophet before which says that a prophet not only foretells things, but he tells things forth. That is, a prophet is one who speaks of things that ought to come before they happen, and then they happen. A prophet is a man who writes history before it occurs. Besides that a prophet is a man who stands in the local situation and he describes what ought to be done because of what’s existing.” 

~ from “JIM ELLIOT: A Christian Martyr Speaks to You” edited by Robert Lloyd Russell, pg 25 (ISBN: 9781615797646)
