  • Rom 154 For whatever was written in earlier
    times was written for our instruction, so that
    through perseverance and the encouragement of the
    Scriptures we might have hope.

    an example, and they were written for our
    instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have
    come.

  • 2Ch 3615 The LORD, the God of their fathers,
    sent word to them again and again by His
    messengers, because He had compassion on His
    people and on His dwelling place
  • 2Ch 3616 but they continually mocked the
    messengers of God, despised His words and scoffed
    at His prophets, until the wrath of the LORD
    arose against His people, until there was no
    remedy.

  • 2Ch 3617 Therefore He brought up against them
    the king of the Chaldeans who slew their young
    men with the sword in the house of their
    sanctuary, and had no compassion on young man or
    virgin, old man or infirm He gave them all into
    his hand.

    Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets,
  • Heb 1133 who by faith conquered kingdoms,
    performed acts of righteousness, obtained
    promises, shut the mouths of lions,

    with the sword they went about in sheepskins, in
    goatskins, being destitute, afflicted,
    ill-treated

    caves and holes in the ground.
  • Heb 1139 And all these, having gained approval
    through their faith, did not receive what was
    promised,
  • Heb 1140 because God had provided something
    better for us, so that apart from us they would
    not be made perfect.

11
Old Testament Valuable To Our Faith Today
  • 1Pe 110 As to this salvation, the prophets who
    prophesied of the grace that would come to you
    made careful searches and inquiries,
  • 1Pe 111 seeking to know what person or time the
    Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He
    predicted the sufferings of Christ and the
    glories to follow.

12
Old Testament Valuable To Our Faith Today
  • 1Pe 112 It was revealed to them that they were
    not serving themselves, but you, in these things
    which now have been announced to you through
    those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy
    Spirit sent from heaven--things into which angels
    long to look.

13
Introduction
  • Prophets are minor because of length of their
    writings compared to the major prophets
    (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel)
  • Like the prophets, we need to stand for Gods
    Word, no matter what may come to our nation,
    trusting His rule and mercy
  • Like them, we need to trust in the Lord who
    provides our only true hope, eternal life

An Introduction To The Minor Prophets
  1. What is a prophet?
  2. How can we distinguish between true and false
    prophets?
  3. Who are the minor prophets?
  4. What information can help us better understand
    the minor prophets?
  5. What did the minor prophets preach?

15
An Introduction To The Minor Prophets
  1. What are some of the themes found in the minor
    prophets?
  2. Strategy for studying each minor prophet

16
What Is A Prophet?
  • Origin uncertain
  • Understood to mean bubble or boil up
  • Bible description a prophet is a spokesman for
    God, forthtelling His Word revealing past,
    present and future

17
What Is A Prophet?
  • Exo 416 "Moreover, he shall speak for you to
    the people and he will be as a mouth for you and
    you will be as God to him.
  • Exo 71 Then the LORD said to Moses, "See, I
    make you as God to Pharaoh, and your brother
    Aaron shall be your prophet.
  • Exo 72 "You shall speak all that I command you,
    and your brother Aaron shall speak to Pharaoh
    that he let the sons of Israel go out of his
    land.

18
What Is A Prophet?
  • 2Pe 119 So we have the prophetic word made more
    sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to
    a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day
    dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts.
  • 2Pe 120 But know this first of all, that no
    prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own
    interpretation,

19
What Is A Prophet?
  • 2Pe 121 for no prophecy was ever made by an act
    of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit
    spoke from God.

20
What Is A Prophet?
  • Jer 207 O LORD, You have deceived me and I was
    deceived You have overcome me and prevailed. I
    have become a laughingstock all day long
    Everyone mocks me.
  • Jer 208 For each time I speak, I cry aloud I
    proclaim violence and destruction, Because for me
    the word of the LORD has resulted In reproach and
    derision all day long.

21
What Is A Prophet?
  • Jer 209 But if I say, "I will not remember Him
    Or speak anymore in His name," Then in my heart
    it becomes like a burning fire Shut up in my
    bones And I am weary of holding it in, And I
    cannot endure it.

22
How Can We Distinguish Between True And False
Prophets?
  1. Fulfillment test does what he predicts come to
    pass?
  2. Consistency test is his teaching in harmony
    with what God previously revealed?

23
Does What He Predicts Come To Pass?
  • Deu 1821 "You may say in your heart, 'How will
    we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?'
  • Deu 1822 "When a prophet speaks in the name of
    the LORD, if the thing does not come about or
    come true, that is the thing which the LORD has
    not spoken. The prophet has spoken it
    presumptuously you shall not be afraid of him.

24
Contrast Jeremiah With Hananiah
  • Jer 281 Now in the same year, in the beginning
    of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the
    fourth year, in the fifth month, Hananiah the son
    of Azzur, the prophet, who was from Gibeon, spoke
    to me in the house of the LORD in the presence of
    the priests and all the people, saying,
  • Jer 282 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God
    of Israel, 'I have broken the yoke of the king of
    Babylon.

25
Contrast Jeremiah With Hananiah
  • Jer 283 'Within two years I am going to bring
    back to this place all the vessels of the LORD'S
    house, which Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took
    away from this place and carried to Babylon.

26
Contrast Jeremiah With Hananiah
  • Jer 284 'I am also going to bring back to this
    place Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim, king of
    Judah, and all the exiles of Judah who went to
    Babylon,' declares the LORD, 'for I will break
    the yoke of the king of Babylon.'"
  • Jer 2813 "Go and speak to Hananiah, saying,
    'Thus says the LORD, "You have broken the yokes
    of wood, but you have made instead of them yokes
    of iron."

27
Contrast Jeremiah With Hananiah
  • Jer 2814 'For thus says the LORD of hosts, the
    God of Israel, "I have put a yoke of iron on the
    neck of all these nations, that they may serve
    Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and they will
    serve him. And I have also given him the beasts
    of the field."'"
  • Jer 2815 Then Jeremiah the prophet said to
    Hananiah the prophet, "Listen now, Hananiah, the
    LORD has not sent you, and you have made this
    people trust in a lie.

28
Contrast Jeremiah With Hananiah
  • Jer 2816 "Therefore thus says the LORD,
    'Behold, I am about to remove you from the face
    of the earth. This year you are going to die,
    because you have counseled rebellion against the
    LORD.'"
  • Jer 2817 So Hananiah the prophet died in the
    same year in the seventh month.

29
Contrast Jeremiah With Hananiah
  • Jer 2224 "As I live," declares the LORD, "even
    though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah
    were a signet ring on My right hand, yet I would
    pull you off
  • Jer 2225 and I will give you over into the hand
    of those who are seeking your life, yes, into the
    hand of those whom you dread, even into the hand
    of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and into the
    hand of the Chaldeans.

30
Contrast Jeremiah With Hananiah
  • Jer 2226 "I will hurl you and your mother who
    bore you into another country where you were not
    born, and there you will die.
  • 2Ki 258 Now on the seventh day of the fifth
    month, which was the nineteenth year of King
    Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, Nebuzaradan the
    captain of the guard, a servant of the king of
    Babylon, came to Jerusalem.

31
Contrast Jeremiah With Hananiah
  • 2Ki 259 He burned the house of the LORD, the
    king's house, and all the houses of Jerusalem
    even every great house he burned with fire.
  • 2Ki 2510 So all the army of the Chaldeans who
    were with the captain of the guard broke down the
    walls around Jerusalem.

32
Contrast Jeremiah With Hananiah
  • 2Ki 2527 Now it came about in the
    thirty-seventh year of the exile of Jehoiachin
    king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the
    twenty-seventh day of the month, that
    Evil-merodach king of Babylon, in the year that
    he became king, released Jehoiachin king of Judah
    from prison
  • 2Ki 2528 and he spoke kindly to him and set his
    throne above the throne of the kings who were
    with him in Babylon.

33
Contrast Jeremiah With Hananiah
  • 2Ki 2530 and for his allowance, a regular
    allowance was given him by the king, a portion
    for each day, all the days of his life.

34
Is His Teaching In Harmony With What God
Previously Revealed?
  • Deu 131 "If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams
    arises among you and gives you a sign or a
    wonder,
  • Deu 132 and the sign or the wonder comes true,
    concerning which he spoke to you, saying, 'Let us
    go after other gods (whom you have not known) and
    let us serve them,'

35
Is His Teaching In Harmony With What God
Previously Revealed?
  • Deu 133 you shall not listen to the words of
    that prophet or that dreamer of dreams for the
    LORD your God is testing you to find out if you
    love the LORD your God with all your heart and
    with all your soul.
  • Deu 134 "You shall follow the LORD your God and
    fear Him and you shall keep His commandments,
    listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him.

    dreams shall be put to death, because he has
    counseled rebellion against the LORD your God who
    brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed
    you from the house of slavery, to seduce you from
    the way in which the LORD your God commanded you
    to walk. So you shall purge the evil from among
    you.

37
Moses, Micah and Jeremiah Agree
  • Deu 2847 "Because you did not serve the LORD
    your God with joy and a glad heart, for the
    abundance of all things

    things and He will put an iron yoke on your neck
    until He has destroyed you.

38
Moses, Micah and Jeremiah Agree
  • Mic 311 Her leaders pronounce judgment for a
    bribe, Her priests instruct for a price And her
    prophets divine for money. Yet they lean on the
    LORD saying, "Is not the LORD in our midst?
    Calamity will not come upon us."

39
Moses, Micah and Jeremiah Agree

    people, saying,

42

    days of Hezekiah king of Judah and he spoke to
    all the people of Judah, saying, 'Thus the LORD
    of hosts has said, "Zion will be plowed as a
    field, And Jerusalem will become ruins, And the
    mountain of the house as the high places of a
    forest."'

43
Moses, Micah and Jeremiah Agree
  • Jer 2619 "Did Hezekiah king of Judah and all
    Judah put him to death? Did he not fear the LORD
