The word for today is prophet

I think our first reflex when we see the word prophet is to hear the word fore-teller -- someone who tells the future.  It's my opinion that when reading the Prophet books in the Bible, we should instead see them as forth-tellers -- tellers of truth.  They are reflecting back to the reader what the see in the people around them -- and what God sees in the children he has created. 

So, for me, prophet means reflection.
