Prophets (Messengers) Receiving Funds for Their Works


The Bible says that the laborer is worthy of his hire. A prophet is a messenger who represents God. The disciples of Jesus collected Tithe and were supported by such. Jesus, the greatest prophet of all, of course, lived off the provisions of others. Elijah started schools for the prophets, and Elisha continued the practice. These schools and their students received support. Nowhere does the Bible say that a prophet should not receive support for his work.
