|Top Seven Awesome Prophets And Their Lifestyle In The Bible by immortalvoices(m): 11:29am On Jan 31, 2016|
I was studying the Bible and I was awed by the ways and doings of the biblical prophet of old, lots of faiths and powers were on display
I do believe that they have set a standard for true and godly prophet of now these days.. So fellow nairalanders I compiled few top prophet and their ways
. I GIVE YOU THE TOP SEVEN MOST AWESOME PROPHETS OF THE BIBLE....
SAMUEL : Samuel lived in the presence of God all his life, in fact he was the only prophet in the Bible that God literally called. That is God like went into his room and called him(awesome right, I mean how many people can boast of that huh?) but the most awesome thing about Samuel is that he is also the only prophet in the Bible that God called in his childhood. SAMUEL was a child when God called him... Totally awesome!
MOSES : Moses was awesome. Let's forget the fact that he grew up in Egyptian court, was a prince, very smart, Led his people out of slavery, talked with God face to face (mega awesome), lifted his hand and the tide of battle changes, let's forget those awesome-hard-to-ignore facts, want to know what the most awesome thing about moses is? I will tell you..... Never in the history of human race has these two phrases "... Like a god to them" and "... The Most humble man in all the earth" been used to describe one person. Anybody who gets a taste of power becomes so prideful they literally begin to swell, but Moses(who his enemies see as a god) was humble and that is the very definition of awesomeness
ELISHA : The one thing that stands the prophet Elisha out is his boldness. The guy was bold, can you believe he walked into enemy camp and anoints an officer of the enemy king to be king while the enemy king who by the way is still very much alive and want to kill him was a few tents away drinking with his commanders . He rebuked a tyrant king of Isreal who is known for his cruelty to those that oppose him. Just when you think these moves were bold enough, he looked his master Elijah in the eyes, a man who had called down fire to consume evil prophets of baal, who summoned rain on a land devastated by drought for three years, who divided the Jordan river by merely touching it with his cloak, a man who didn't die but flew to heaven on a chariot of fire ; Elisha my man looked at such a person and said " master... I want double of what you got. " Double of Elijah's powers?! Tell me you don't think that's awesome and I will shoot you.
ISAIAH : Isaiah son of Amos deserves to be on this list because he was fearless, he commanded respect. Isaiah was more respected than the Kings he served.
Three things qualifies Isaiah for awesomeness :
* his dramatic calling where in his first vision he was taking up to heaven which he describes in detail(for those who want a picture of heaven look up Isaiah 6) in that vision an angel used a coal to touch his mouth through which he absorbed his sins (just like that no more sin, I want one) then he heard the voice of the LORD asking 'who shall I send? Who will go for us?' Isaiah replied ' hear I am, send me!'
* Isaiah also predicted very accurately I might add the birth of Jesus ( Isaiah 7 v 14, Matthew 1 v 23)
* And lastly he made the most wicked king in Israel's history king Manasseh ( a man who is known for sacrificing his own son to idols, somebody who God himself describes as a king whose sins surpasses that of both the former kings of Isreal and Judah combined together) to repent of his ways and turn to God. As a result one of the deepest prayers of forgiveness in the Bible was recorded.
JEREMIAH : If God said to me " before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, Before you were born I set you apart. I appoint you as a prophet to the nations, do not say ' I am too young' you must go to everyone I send you and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them for I am with you and I will rescue you ". Then touched my mouth and said to me" I have put my words in your mouth, see today I appoint you over the nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant ;get yourself ready : stand up and say whatever i command you. Do not be terrified by them or I will terrify you before them. Today I have made you a fortified city, a bronze wall an iron pillar to stand against the whole land, against kings, their officials, their priest and their people They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you ". (Do you know what proud me I will do....?) I will call the presidents of all nations to come and bow down before me, I'll uproot those that will not, tear down anybody that challenges me, destroy any form of resistance and overthrow any government that's a threat . Then I will build a big castle for myself, plant a beautiful garden in front of it... Then I will have it written across the skies that I am the king of the world but Jeremiah is not me so instead he humbled himself before kings, their officials and the priests and their people. He offered advice to kings,prophesied to the nations, led the priests in praise and worship even when they threw him in a well, he still begged God not to destroy them and pleaded with them to change their ways. And that was awesome.
ELIJAH : "the power of the LORD came on Elijah and tucking his cloak into his belt he 'ran' ahead of Ahab all the way to Jezreel" (1 kings 18 v 46). Now the Ahab in question was 'riding' to Jezreel on his royal chariot (chariots were the fastest means of transportation in ancient times) The speed of a chariot depends on the number of horses attached to it. A normal chariot has two horses attached to it and it's speed(on a free way) is equivalent to that of a sports car doing 350 mph. Now a royal chariot consists of a minimum of six horses attached to its chariot (no need to tell you the speed at which such a chariot would be moving) yet Elijah "ran ahead of " it to its destination (super speed baby, super speed! )
Elijah had super speed and that's him on a boring Thursday.
Here's what he does on busy week days: commanding the skies to withhold the rain until he says otherwise, calling down fire on two separate captains and their fifty men, getting fed by Ravens day and night (doesn't have to cook), blessing a poor widow abundantly and while he was at it, raising the dead son of the said widow back to life. Then at weekends : he challenges 450 prophets prophets of baal to a contest, calls down fire (yeah he's got a thing for fire) from heaven to consume slaughtered Bulls that's drenched in water, hangs out occasionally with God himself on mountains. He's so Cool and awesome that he didn't die but went to heaven alive in style (on a chariot of fire).
DANIEL : Daniel was very smart, very wise, could see visions and interpret it, he even ate his vegetables, Daniel was so awesome that he told a king " your days are numbered; you're going to die" and he was rewarded for it by that king by making him second in command over the whole Babylonian empire. Daniel was friends with every king that came to power in his lifetime; they look at him and they get like 'man you're awesome, come work for me and am not taking no for an answer'. But what made Daniel a part of this list was his awesome unwavering faith in God he displayed when his friend king Darius forcefully (yea I know long story) made a decree that no one for the next 30 days should pray to any god but himself king Darius.
Now if I was Daniel I be like 'God please just 30 days, forgive me I promise after the 30 days I'll pray to you more than I would have done in those days; I don't want this man to kill me'. But Daniel didn't do that, he prayed seven times a day and that did not change when he heard the decree ... Even when he was thrown in with the Lions he still prayed to point where Rocky one of the Lions in the den told him "boss c' mon you know we ain't gonna eat you... You too awesome for that shii , God has shut our mouths. But don't worry come the morn' you gonna be free and the muh'fuckers who put you here will be our breakfast" . And so it was, Daniel was released and the bad guys were eaten. Mr D was one of the few people that predicted the end times. all in all Daniel was awesome

ELIJAH, ELISHA, DANIEL
I love them more...
Elijah- A powerful undiluted man of God with so much anointing
Elisha- A receiver of transfer of anointing multiplies in multiple folds. Worked mouth watering wonders.
Daniel- A man full of wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Despite his wisdom, he still seeks and never deviate from God's principles and standard.
Lord, please tailored my life in such a way "worthy of good reference"

Do we still have any in our generation with a fraction of the qualities of the prophets of old.
What we have these days are sycophants, entertainers, tithe/seed hunters and political gratifiers.
No more fearless prophets that could confront an erring leader and tell him the mind of God.
We no longer have prophets who could command a rain of stone or fire on monsters called Boko Haram.
Or who could tell our soldiers when to war and when not to war.
No more prophets who could command abundance in the household of a wretched widow using the smallest oil in her abode.
We no longer have prophets who could command a 24 hour abundance in the height of economic failure, hopelessness and great famine.
Sure no more prophets these days that can change the natural programme of day and night and command an extension of hours of the day.
We no longer have those who could move on foot ahead of a Kings convoy of fast running cars yet reach the destination before the king.
We no longer have those whose dead bones could heal diseases.
We no longer have those whose sprits terrify sorcerers/sorceress when they try to practice some spiritual operations.
But sure we have these days those who press women breasts, compel gullible women to suck their manhood,
We have those who can only foresee other peoples troubles but not their own personal trouble.
We have those that compel members to swallow snakes.
We have those who inflict others with madness.
We have those who stage fake miracles and seek popularity not by their outstanding gits but by media campaign like politicians.

The Greatest Prophet ever is Jesus Christ...
1. He did all what other prophets had done.
2. He also did what other prophets couldn't do
3. He is the only way to the Father.
4. He has the key of death with Him
He is just super.
How many likes for the King of kings
