Being Church is our Calling. The Kingdom of God is our Glorious Hope.
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.
