WHO IS A PROPHET, AND WHAT IS HIS MISSION?
“The prophet is God’s policeman on duty to reprove, rebuke, and exhort in the name of God and righteousness. The prophet is not famous, and his voice is the one crying in the wilderness of life. He is sold out to God, and the word ‘compromise’ is not known to him. He is one-way traffic on the highway of God.”
This intriguing and fascinating publication brings to light the scriptural sketch of who a genuine prophet of God should be. It describes his characteristics. It discloses vital lessons from his walk with God and also examines his mode of operation.
When the Israelites (the church) wandered away from God and gave themselves to idolatry and false religion, God sent His prophets to confront the situation. It’s a late hour on God’s watch, and He is sending His prophets today “to make ready a people prepared for the Lord” (Luke 1:17).
ELIJAH ANUOLUWAPO LAMB was born in England but grew up in Nigeria, where he was exposed to the church life from a young age by his mother. He made a conscious decision in August 1998 to accept Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour. Yet, he didn’t fully commit his life to the Lord until he had a major encounter with the Holy Spirit on August 23, 2007. He found himself laughing uncontrollably during morning prayers with a family he met upon his return to England. Since then, Elijah has had a full-blown passion for God and service to His church. He and his wife, Yvonne, continue the ministry of Christ in England with their daughter, Hannah.
