The prophet in the Old Testament is someone raised up or called by God to speak to the people and act on his behalf. A prophet is sometimes called 'a man of God'; other terms include 'hazeh' - visionary or 'roeh' - seer. More commonly used is the word 'nabi', someone who announces. Prophets include women (Deborah). The names indicate the role; a prophet is God's messenger. There is an expectation that the Prophet will have God's Spirit and may perform signs and wonders. The prophet will have the ability to see in a visionary way to see from God's perspective, perhaps to fore tell as well as forth tell, and have supernatural insight for both large scale events and local insights.
