Seer

The gift of prophecy edifies, exhorts, and comforts I Corinthians 14:3

It should lead you to Christ, build you up and strengthen you in your walk with God; always, leading us to the Word of God. It is the ministry of the Holy Spirit to convict of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment to come. John 16:8-11

That being said, the scripture also, says that He [God] confirms His word with signs and wonders following.

The prophet seer, sees, and is able to interpret what he/she sees and teaches it to the Church. The visuals God gives to a prophet/seer brings continuity to the message and is often multidimensional. The word, vision, or dream speaks in parallels and parables. I read, where it was mistakenly said that  modern prophets don’t foretell. Only, forth tell, meaning they call those things that are not as though they were, according to what the Spirit shows them is God’s will on earth. This is true, but as far as the foretelling goes, you would have to explain that to St. John who wrote the Revelation of Jesus Christ, from an encounter he had on the Isle Patmos. In it he “foretold” the last days. Also, in the new testament, after the ascension of Christ, (in case that makes a difference for someone) A prophet fore told of a famine. Because of that the church was able to prepare for it.

Acts 11:27- 28

During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) Notice Agabus was not of the original 12 apostles. (Just for those who say the gifts of the Holy Spirit were only possessed by the 12 apostles and died out with them.)

The prophet of God is capable of foretelling to warn God’s people in order that they might watch, and pray, to be diligent in their walk with him, and to be sober. Often times we are used to give words of knowledge regarding future events, in order to be prepared for a storm, or famine in the land. This is God, through His Holy Spirit, giving us instruction to do what we need to do, to best process, live through, and apply wisdom in the days ahead.

Another form of  foretelling is often found in a dream, or prophecy, that details an event that can only be seen after the matter, in other words it is only seen in retro-spec when a sign is enigmatically wrapped in a prophetic word, or more often in a dream. This is what I call a prophetic marker  to pay attention to the message of that dream, vision, or prophecy. So the message is actually more important than the prophetic markers in it, those markers are there to point to the season we are in, when we begin to see them. This is for us to pay attention to what has transpired. The old testament is full of that kind of prophecy, in the stories of the patriarchs, in the books of the prophets, in the psalms, hidden prophecy describing Jesus the son of God, even paralleling end time events.

After Christ  came into the earth these passages in Isaiah, and the Psalms- even the stories of Isaac, and Rebekah, all reveal enigmatic detail of  the life of Christ, his crucifixion, death,  Resurrection, and second coming. It is the same thing today in prophetic parallels in current events that take place before our eyes. Often those events have in them prophetic parallels that warn or foretell of the days or years to come. They are referred to as “Harbingers” as defined in  Webster’s Free Dictionary-

 
Noun

har·bin·ger/ˈhärbənjər/
  1. A person or thing that announces or signals the approach of another.
  2. A forerunner of something.
 Synonyms

herald – forerunner – precursor – messenger – portent

There is one on this site written about called The Tall Ship Bounty and Sandy Enigmas. These are historical events that recycle themselves as messengers for the days to come, in  hidden enigmas the wisdom of God unlocks through his prophets of the day. One famous harbinger written about in a best seller book called The Harbinger https://www.facebook.com/TheOfficialHarbinger Points to events surrounding 9:11 that every American should read.  Prophets who  use the prophetic gift for their own gain, fame, or profit, will be judged. All that the seer/ prophet is to accomplish in all of his “seeing” is for the purposes of God  to bring glory to his name, preaching the Gospel of reconciliation through His Son Yeshuah, the Lord Jesus Christ.

In The News Today, Bounty. HARBINGER of Things To Come?

The TALL SHIP BOUNTY is in the news today as an investigation wraps up that examined why she sank off of the banks of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, during hurricane Sandy. A “generator” failed that was pumping water from the vessel. Of course that was not the reason Bounty sank. It was a storm unpredictable, and a series of  decisions made before and after the failed generators. Much like America is facing today. We are running on economic GENERATORS, and paper money to keep this vessel a float. Will they prevail the storms, or will they fail in the midst of them?  Read on.

The details embedded in this story have interesting connections and coincidences that make you wonder, “Is the Sinking of the Tall Ship Bounty a harbinger of things to come?”

har·bin·ger : Noun.  A person or thing that announces or signals the approach of another. A forerunner of something. Synonyms herald – forerunner – precursor – messenger – portent.

THE TALL SHIP BOUNTY AND SANDY ENIGMAS

Ezekiel 27:25

The ships of Tarshish (seafaring vessels) were your ocean caravans. Your island warehouse was filled to the brim! “But look! Your oarsmen are rowing your ship of state into a hurricane! Your mighty vessel flounders in the heavy eastern gale. You are shipwrecked in the heart of the sea! Everything is lost — your riches and wares, your sailors and helmsmen, your ship builders, merchants, and warriors. On that day of vast ruin, everyone on board sinks into the depths of the sea. “Your cities by the sea tremble as your helmsmen cry out in terror. All the oarsmen abandon their ships; the sailors and helmsmen come to stand on the shore.

For more- WHY THE SINKING OF TALL SHIP BOUNTY IS NUMERICALLY ATTACHED TO  EZEKIEL 27:25 in its last fateful voyage.

From today’s story-                                                                                                                                                                 
“…  Around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 27, about 300 miles east of Virginia Beach, Virginia, the captain made his move: Instead of continuing with his original plan to stay east of the storm, he ordered the crew to change course. He wanted to pilot the ship northwest of Sandy to harness its winds. Turning more westerly, the boat crossed the path of the oncoming hurricane.” [1]
