If I am not welcome in my hometown, does it mean that I may potentially be a prophet some day?
Mo criminal record, no reason to have one, no friends as tend to get used by people -is this suffering as described in NT.?
I don't see how the two things are related. It may mean, if you are a prophet, and give our times it wouldn't surprise me, that you share a common trait.
A pedophile is usually not welcomed in most towns either, but I daresay he/she isn't a prophet. But then again being a prophet, or believing you are, may lead you to be outcast.
The possibilities are endless!
thoogun, don't know what to make of that. I presently have no links or sick material etc. to link me to disgusting modes, nor any intention or need for such.
Thank You for your answer, it has given food for thought.
Jesus said it and you are trying to make a funny.
"And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "Only in his hometown and in his own house is a prophet without honor." (NIV)
Prophets are used of god today as before. The work of a prophet is to edify the body of christ
Suffering in the NT is in context of suffering for God. If you have no criminal record because god made you good and your friends all discard you because you are christian, then yes.
But it may not mean you could potentially be a prophet.
The holiness factor in your life depends on your being a prophet.
go and ask your doctor, and when he tells you to wait while he goes and checks something, just wait, they won't be long in coming, and then you'll fell much better.
No not necessarily. Noah was a prophet ordered by God to warn the people where he lived, yet the mocked and ignored him until it was to late. Jesus was both God and prophet, yet the people of his town saw him only as the son of the carpenter Joseph. For you to be seen as a prophet, first you would have to receive from God and deliver some prophetic information, that would not be welcomed.
Wow, it's a little interesting that someone even feels the need to ask that question. My guess is that if one needs to ask it of one's self then the answer is no. Jesus wasn't waivering on the topic, he knew who he was.
As for a more metaphorical response, all sharks are fish, but not all fish are sharks. I'll let you do the math (or the logic) from there.
