I think Hollywood has done a great disservice in the way "prophets" are portrayed in general. The visual image we have is of Charlton Heston sternly demanding that Egypt let God's people go. We seldom ever see nor suspect that Yahweh's prophets were usually broken hearted and filled with crushing anxiety.
Jeremiah confessed that his eyes ran rivers of tears. Isaiah, seeing the coming judgment in chapter six, wailed, "Lord...how long!" Moses reminded Yahweh that judgment would be a blight on the reputation of his name. John, upon seeing the Revelation of Jesus and the coming judgment, fell at Christ's feet as though dead.
Jesus cried over Jerusalem, "Jerusalem, Jerusalem...how I would have gathered you..."
Jonah was SOUNDLY REBUKED by Yahweh for having the desire to see damning judgment fall on Nineveh, and Nineveh had grievously hurt Israel for hundreds of years. Abraham plead with Yahweh over Sodom. Elijah, after complaining to Yahweh that he alone was left faithful...was rebuked, replaced immediately by Elisha, then carried off in a flame of fire. Habakkuk dared even to challenge Yahweh's judgment on his people.
Jesus died to prevent Yahweh's judgment falling on people. Jesus, the great prophet, died for the sins of people instead of announcing with satisfaction that people were getting...and going to get...their dues.
Isaiah, the prince of prophets,
"Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool." (ESV)
