Minor and Major Bible Prophets in the Bible

Let us begin, shall we? What Are Bible Prophets and what is their purpose? God said that He would never do anything without first revealing it through God's Prophets, so that they could tell the people whether it was a warning or blessing.

Amos 3:7

Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the Prophets.

Numbers 12:6

And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.

Isaiah 46:9-10

9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Isaiah 52:6

Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I Am He that doth speak: behold it is I.

Isaiah prophesied on the birth, life, and death of Jesus, and the Lord used him to reveal many End Times prophecies. A very popular Prophet.

Known as the weeping Prophet. He had to tell all the bad news of Babylon. He prophesied during carryout.

Ezekiel was a Prophet before and during the carryout. He preached and prophesied at the same time Daniel, Jeremiah, and Habakkuk did. He was visited by angels called cherubim. He also went to heaven and saw the New Temple and new Jerusalem. He was visited by the hand of the Lord much.

Daniel was carried out of Jerusalem (Judah) and chosen by Nebuchadnezzar to live in Babylon under the employ of him. The child was chosen because of his appearance, wisdom, understanding. Daniel refused to eat kings meat, because it would defile him. God took him in, and made him wise in visions and dream interpretation. He foretold of many things including the coming of the Messiah, wars, nations that were to rule. God was with him. He was greatly beloved of God.

Hosea was forced into marriage with a harlot to show the way God feels about Israel's idols when He is the husband. He foretold End Times and many other prophecies.

Disaster strikes the southern kingdom of Judah without warning. An ominous black cloud descends upon the land -- the dreaded locusts. In a matter of hours, every living green thing has been stripped bare. Joel, God's spokesman during the reign of Joash, seizes this occasion to proclaim God's message. Although the locust plague has been a terrible judgment for sin, God's future judgments during the day of the Lord will make that plague pale in comparison. In that day, God will destroy His enemies, but bring unparalleled blessing to those who faithfully obey Him.

It's not always clear to most people what different prophecies from God's Prophets in the Bible mean until they come to pass. The Jewish people didn't even recognize the present day prophets of the time prediction of their long awaited Messiah Jesus, of which the Bible Prophets shared various Spiritual prophecies. Because of the Israelite's blinding pride, Jesus was crucified by them (But this was all part of God's plan to bring in the SON-derful Salvation that we now have access to through Grace). Speaking of Jesus, He also brought us extremely essential prophecy from God sharing the coming events known as the End Times ... He said that we are to be prepared by watching for the signs, so that day does not surprise us.

Matthew 24:42-44

42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
