Journeying with the Founder Day #21

A prophet has the specific function of speaking on behalf of the Lord; he is the voice of the Lord. Even when a prophet wants to give up, God insists on calling him and asking him to continue his mission. The prophet is he who, within the context of the covenant, calls people back to true values and sacrifice; he recalls us to the value of good works, to what needs to be done, and thus not to be formal or legalistic, but to go in depth. According to Malachi, the prophet is he who manifests the new sacrifice, speaks prophetically about a new
reality, a new world, a new covenant, a new heart, and a new Spirit (see Ezekiel and Jeremiah). This is prophecy’s value. (The Covenant)
