old testament and contemporary prophets by Natalia Zielinski

What is a prophet?

A prophet is a person who speaks the words of God to others (Perkinson, 2016). A prophet inspired meassges from God to others. God tells the prophet what to say and the prophet tells others what God said (Perkinson, 2016). sometimes it is easier to hear God through another person because sometimes it is harder to hear him speaking to you when he is just speaking to you (Perkinson, 2016).

What qualities would be associated with a prophetical person?

Some of the characteristics that make up a prophet are the need to express themselves verbally, Prophets tend to make quick judgements about what they see or hear, Prophets are usually alert to dishonesty or deception, they usually tend to cut off those who sin so that justice is achieved, Prophets are usually very open about their personal faults, Once they are committed to a cause they get wholeheartedly involved with it and They are loyal to the truth even if it means cutting off relationships (What are the common characteristics of prohets, 2014)

Who are the prophets in our world?

The prophets in our world are the people that do the unexpected works of God and set us an example that God wants us all to follow. They set examples for children, adults, communities, states, countries and the World. Nic and Lucas are like prophets because it shows that anyone even if you are just out of school can help anyone who needs it, even if they don’t earn any money. It also shows that if you give someone who is homeless a bit of help they might be able to get a job and set themselves up again. Nic and Lucas have helped hundreds of homeless people after natural disasters or who are just homeless and they have helped them and continue to without expecting anything in return.

Who are Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett?

Nic Marchesi, 21, and Lucas Patchett, 22, both gave up what they were doing to do the Orange Sky laundry. Their occupation is now their charity Orange sky laundry and they live at home with their parents. (There wasn't any information that i could find about their place/date of birth). They don't earn a wage and their charity is run purely on volunteers (Chryssides, 2016). Before they met, they both individually volunteered for the early-morning city food van for homeless people. They met when they both became house captains in Year 12 at St Joseph's college in Brisbane. From there they became best mates and the idea of Orange sky laundry came a few years after they left high school after they decided that they wanted to keep helping homeless people in everyday life (Chryssides, 2016). They now have a hot shower for the homeless as well as doing their washing and giving them a new set of clothes to wear (Chryssides, 2016).

Who was Jeremiah?

Jeremiah’s childhood of training for holy service by priests contributed to him becoming a prophet when he got older (Moen, 2017). God had already set Jeremiah apart from before he was born for the office of a prophet in order to take the word of God to all of Israel’s people and to all the nations around the world (Moen, 2017). He served as one of God’s prophets through the rule of five kings of Judah (Josiah, Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, Jehoiachin and Zedekiah). Even through the time of Jerusalem’s destruction by the Babylonians in 586 BC, Jeremiah still pleaded God’s case before Judah (Moen, 2017).

How do they relate to each other?
(Prophets- Jeremiah, 2017)

This quote shows that Lucas and Nic are giving homeless people a chance to do great things and they are giving people that need a helping hand some help to get them on their way. This quote also shows that Lucas and Nic are giving people that are homeless a hope and a better and brighter future. They are giving homeless and people in need a second chance to get on with their life. Nic and Lucas first set up orange sky laundry and went to
