Evangelist's Prophetic Message
Classic Prophetic Style
Another expected element in evangelism is the evangelist's prophetic message. Micah speaks out in classic prophetic style in Micah 2.2 saying, "Hear this, all you nations. Listen to this all who live on the earth! The Sovereign Lord will testify against you. Listen." Many of the prophets displayed extra ordinary character. They were not consistent and this further heightened and sometimes frustrated the hearers' expectations. King Ahab called his servant Obadiah and told him to find the elusive prophet Elijah. After searching diligently for some time, he is suddenly confronted by the great man of God. Obadiah is not quite sure what will happen next and asks in 1 Kings 18.12, "I don’t know where the Spirit of the Lord may carry you when I leave you." The element of nonconformity remained in the prophets as it should in the evangelist today! We have set out the evangelist's message in picture form as "The Basic Principles."✞
