Overview Discussion of prophetic history and functioning, both to instruct prophets how to discharge their office and to inform the Church how to receive prophetic ministry.
Publishers Description Twenty-five years after the release of his ground-breaking book "The Elijah Task, "co-authored with his wife, Paula, a sequel comes from the powerful pen of John Sandford. In "Elijah Among Us, " he outlines a biblically rooted discussion of prophetic history and functioning, both how to instruct prophets and commission their office and how to inform the church about prophetic ministry. Sandford wrote this follow-up book because he sees a strong and even dangerous overemphasis in the church on the "giving of personal words," which is only one role of the prophetic office. The first section of this book develops a history of the prophetic office, how the office metamorphosed from one of warning into proclaiming God's gentle and merciful side, and becoming burden-bearers. Second, Sandford sets forth the working functions of prophets, explaining how they serve in twelve major roles, including bringing blessings, healing, warning of impending judgment, giving protection from tragedies, and offering direction, guidance, or confirmation. Readers will gain crucial knowledge of a widely misunderstood topic, helping them be discerning in these strategic end times. Authoritative and compelling, "Elijah Among Us" is a timely and vital work for the Body of Christ.
