I like the way Lloyd Philips explain the three type/kind of a Prophets when he wrote :
"Biblically there are three Hebrew words that are translated as a prophet, two of which are translated as a seer. There is raah which is translated seer, meaning someone who sees open visions. That same word is used for someone who sees with natural eyes. Then there is chozeh. This word emphasizes spiritual apprehension, of internal visions. And lastly nabiy which is the most common biblical word in terms of the prophetic. It means someone who has the Spirit working within them. It is a word for inspiration. Every prophet receives this type of inspiration. Every prophet will be the nabiy kind, but not every prophet will be the raah or chozeh kind"
I believe with all my heart that many Seer Prophet will be receiving more visitation from the Lord in an open vision,internal vision,trance and night vision of divine dream.We need more visionary prophet who can see the future,the present and the past being revealed by the Holy Ghost so that such visual prophetic component will will provide clarity and correct interpretation that will result to much exhortation,edification and comfort to God's people in the Kingdom
