The office of Prophet is ranked second in the Renewed Covenant Scriptures, right after Apostles. Yet, few of us are aware of what the prophets did among the first century believers to be ranked so highly. This program removes the fog surrounding that question as we consider key prophets by name and review what they actually did in the earliest days of the Messianic movement. As we consider the acts of the prophets you will be amazed at the far-reaching positive consequences of the things the prophets did in the service of the Kingdom. In the process you will gain important insights into dynamics of first century Jewish society as revealed in the book of Acts and how that played into the rapid spread of the Good News. You will also lay the groundwork to better understand the role of the prophets in the final days. Talmidim of the King; be informed, uplifted and inspired by a living Book of Acts!
On the Shavuot / Pentecost of 33 C.E. amazing events unfolded in Jerusalem. The Holy Spirit filled the talmidim of Y’shua and they all began speaking in other tongues – languages they had never learned to speak. The purpose of this startling gift of the Spirit was to empower those first disciples to communicate with Israelites from every corner of the known world who spoke all of those different native languages and who had traveled to Jerusalem to observe Shavuot there. Those travelers were in awe to hear the good news about Y’shua the Messiah spoken to them each in his own native language by simple country folk from Galilee! Not only that, but they had earlier witnessed unusual signs in the heavens and earth testifying to them of things they did not yet understand. As they wondered at these miracles Peter / Kefa and the rest of the Emissaries boldly explained to them from the prophecies of Joel and David how these signs bore divine witness to Y’shua the Nazarean whom their nation had offered up to be killed, but who had defeated death and sat at the right hand of God in Heaven! Why was all this happening THEN? They were living in the LAST DAYS! In this program you will learn what all of this meant in those last days – and what it means for these last days in which we NOW live.
