He’s a Renaissance man. The ultimate throwback. He’s a 501(c)(3) that seems to have been born in 501 B.C. He prefers the clothing, speech, food, facial grooming (or lack thereof), and customs of an archetypical Old Testament prophet, living in 21st century America.

His eccentricities do not stop there; however, the Non-Prophet is also chronologically challenged. Oft forgetting what era he lives in, he boldly proclaims wrongly timed Biblical prophecy to anyone he meets. His prophetic insights are ill-timed as he hails from rooftops things that have already occurred. If you encounter him, he may also state a prophecy about your current situation, however his poorly timed words miss the mark and land outside the bounds of any real usefulness.

There is one last thing you must know about the Non-Prophet. He is not wise with his money and doesn’t see that a freelancing Non-Prophet with no business acumen or marketable skills may struggle to make ends meet. He epitomizes the phrase,”a day late and a dollar short.” He’ll boldly proclaim obvious events to you, then ask to borrow five bucks before he moves on to his next non-prophetic assignment.

Keep an eye out for upcoming comic strips featuring “The Non-Prophet”. My prayer is that he will serve as a tool to help people learn about Bible prophecy, apologetics, and theology in a fresh, fun, and relevant way.
