Signs of a Prophet

Ben Sternke lists six characteristics of a prophet.

  • They often enjoy spending time alone with God and sense his heart clearly.
  • They care deeply about values and integrity, and often sense before anyone else when an organization is drifting.
  • They are able to stand back from circumstances and get a clear picture of what’s really going on.
  • This clarity oftentimes enables them to come up with creative and innovative solutions that others don’t see.
  • They are outside the box thinkers, and tend to disrupt the status quo.
  • They are future-oriented, and tend to see opportunities and dangers before everyone else.

Speaking for myself, I have those characteristics and do not enjoy them. They run in my family, and my relatives tend to become puffed up by them, which is a strong negative example for me. I also like to get along with people, and I often alarm them unintentionally just by going about my business and trying to say something sensible. I am generally either invisible to people or appalling to them.
