Obadiah 1

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Obadiah: God’s Justice

Obadiah is the shortest book in the Old Testament. It is not directed at Israel, but at one of her nemesis’ Edom. It is a microcosm of all the writing prophets where Israel’s enemies are warned and God’s blessing to Israel are reaffirmed. We all long for justice, and this book reminds us that God is interested in it as well…

Amos 1-9

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Amos: The Shepherd Prophet

Amos was an average every day guy who was asked by God to deliver a sharp and painful message. He was not a professional religious type, but a farmer and businessman. He lived during days that are almost exactly like the days we live in; prosperity and invincibility. God was about to send them into captivity for their sins, what will He do with us?

Joel 1-3

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Joel: The Day of the LORD

Joel is a book that has been under much discussion lately for a reference to the moon and the sun and the coming of the LORD. Too often well intended preachers take a thought and run with it and in the process miss vital context clues to the meaning. Joel’s writes about an event almost 2700 years ago that was a shadow of a yet future event described as the Day of the LORD.

Hosea 1-14

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Sin, Judgment, and Salvation

Hosea is the first of a group called the Minor Prophets, but there is nothing minor about them. They are filled with God’s judgment but also of hope and love.  Hosea is one the most familiar of this group of 12.  Hosea leads a difficult life and God uses his personal tragedies as object lessons to draw Israel back into a right relationship with Him.  They rebuff God’s advances but He promises that one day they will return and love Him…

Daniel 8-12

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Daniel, God’s plan for Israel

As we finish up Daniel, God has a specific message for Israel. Daniel’s book is attacked as inauthentic primarily because of these last 5 chapters; as though God would not reveal such specific details (or maybe could not). We know that God knows all things, past, present and future. If He knows our beginning from our end; knowing the same for nations is nothing to Him. He reveals these things as a warning to turn back to Him…

Daniel 2-7

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Daniel, God’s plan for the nations

The book of Daniel includes a number of visions and their interpretations. The first of them include details about empires that to Daniel were futuristic, but for us we look back and see the incredible and precise detail. God is fully in control of history, we can be sure of that! His plan is unfolding right before our eyes and He has informed us so that we can trust our future to Him as surely as we can our past.

Daniel 1-6

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Daniel, God’s Man of Integrity

Daniel’s story is one of intrigue, harrowing escapes, prophetic visions and tremendous political upheaval.  Daniel himself plays a pivotal role in the history of Israel and is foundational for our understanding of yet future events.  Daniel is not simply a prophetic book, but also an incredible story of what being a man (or woman) of God should look like…

Ezekiel 33-48

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Ezekiel Future Hope

Ezekiel’s ending is all about yet future things to even us. It is filled with hope for a bright future after much adversity and struggle. While the emphasis on this section is Israel, there is much for us to learn from and hope in. When it seems like the world is out of control, it is comforting to know God is still in control!

Ezekiel 1-28

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Ezekiel before the Exile

One of the most difficult books of the Bible is Ezekiel. It is filled with almost every type of Hebrew writing and illustrations that are difficult to understand. There is great warning of coming judgment but also hope for restoration in this book…

Jeremiah 1

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Jeremiah: Weeping Over God’s Destruction

Jeremiah is often referred as the weeping prophet. True his ministry and life were filled with tears. God called him to do hard things during hard times and he was faithful to do so. In Jeremiah we find one who can relate to the days we live in…

Isaiah 40-66

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Isaiah: Hope for Restoration

The ending to this great book is filled with hope and wonder. Most of this is yet to be completed, but many truths form the basis of Jesus life and ministry. They were completely and literally fulfilled, this gives us hope for what is yet to come!

Isaiah 1-39

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
Isaiah: Judgment is Coming

Isaiah, by chapter count, is the longest of the Old Testament prophets.  He served over 55 years and under at least 4 kings.  His writings are some of the most familiar words of any prophet and clearly point to a coming suffering servant who will rescue Israel…

2Kings 8-13

The Prophets - God’s Spokesmen
The End of Elisha’s Ministry

The ministry of Elisha is long, some 55 years or more! As we get to the end of his life, there is a turn in the type of prophetic ministry. The rise of the writing prophets marks a decided turn as well in the decline of culture. Elisha's concluding acts as prophet point to God's continued desire for revival and restoration...
