A Prophet of a Different Kind

Text: "But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne" Acts 2:30.

Placing David along side other biblical characters such as Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Jonah is a bit unusual --at least it seems that way to me. But I must say that Peter's description of David as a prophet has far-reaching significance.

From reading the Old Testament I already know David as a young soldier, a warrior, a musician, a singer and composer --and one of the great kings of Israel. But as a prophet, I see him in yet another distinctive role. In fact, if you have read my book, Sorting Out the Supernatural, you will know that David's prophetic role supports the concept of music as prophecy.

I suggest that when David was writing, playing and singing the psalms, he was prophesying. As we know from the New Testament, prophecy is to be coveted. It is also to be judged. Especially when it delves into the future, it must come true, for it comes from the Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of Truth.

There are many today who believe that true prophecy may or may not be correct as to details and predictive accuracy. Not so. One of the reasons why Christian music sometimes seems so blessed and at other times seems so far away from true worship is the prophecy factor.

Yes, David was among other things, a musical prophet.
