If we consider that God is the Divine Bridegroom and the Church is his Bride, then the prophets can be seen as “spiritual marriage counselors.” They afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted, calling us to return to our covenant relationship with God. They urge us to repentance, warn us of the dangers of sin, and announce the blessings of faithfulness. Their prophetic words speak to us even today, as they draw us closer to our heavenly Bridegroom, and show us how to share him with others.
Discover who the prophets were, what their message was, and why they are important to us and see how God is constantly calling you to a deeper relationship with him. This study will help you discover the areas in your life that prevent you from drawing closer to God and understand how the central message of the prophets is one of love, proclaiming the mercy of God for his children. Come and discover the ways you are called to be the voice of God to others.
