MODERN DAY PROPHECIES
There are some people who
believe that God no longer sends messengers to spread His
Word in the world today. Some believe that since Jesus'
first visit, there haven't been any Prophets of God to
deliver His message.
once said that in our world today, people persecute living
Prophets, and praise dead Saints. What's the TRUTH of the
matter? Are there still people in today's world that God
speaks through? Let's take a look in the Bible and see what
we can find, shall we?
of the reasons why some people believe there are no longer
Prophets of God in our time is this scripture from the Old
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will
send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread,
nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the Words of
the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and
from the north even to the east, they shall run to
and fro to seek the Word of the LORD, and shall not
If you read
the lines of this scripture carefully, you'll find that God
said there would be no hearing of the Words of
the Lord, NOT any speaking of them.
If you read
between the lines of this scripture, you may even
conclude that this might be speaking of what God said
through the Prophet Isaiah concerning the Israelites:
And He said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed,
but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive
not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make
their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see
with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and
understand with their heart, and convert, and be
healed. Then said I, Lord, how long? And He
answered, Until the cities be wasted without
inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land
be utterly desolate, And the LORD have removed men
far away, and there be a great forsaking in the
midst of the land.
fact, they are still seeking the Word of the Lord. Jesus,
the Messiah was sent, and right before their very eyes, was
not only the spoken Word of the Lord, but the Word made
flesh ... And though they sought Him for an incredibly long
time, they did not recognize Him. Many are still awaiting.
be other reasons why people don't believe there are Prophets
of God in our generation ... but didn't most every
generation believe that?
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
because ye build the tombs of the Prophets, and
garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, And say, If
we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not
have been partakers with them in the blood of the
Prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves,
that ye are the children of them which killed the
Prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your
fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how
can ye escape the damnation of hell?
I send unto you
Prophets, and wise men, and scribes:
and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some
of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and
persecute them from city to city: That upon you may
come all the righteous blood shed upon the Earth,
from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of
Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the
Temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, All
these things shall come upon this generation.
believe that the New Testament rendered the "Prophet"
obsolete. The Apostle Paul certainly believed there would be
more Prophets. Paul quoted Elijah while explaining in his
letter to the Romans that God said he wouldn't forsake His
people, but that there would be plenty of Prophets to
continue to deliver the Word:
God hath not cast away His people which He foreknew.
Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he
maketh intercession to God against Israel saying,
Lord, they have killed thy Prophets, and digged down
thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my
life. But what saith the answer of God unto him? I
have reserved to myself
seven thousand men,
who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
Even so then at this present time also there is a
remnant according to the election of Grace.
aside ... The question is simple ... Does God still use
prophets AFTER Jesus died for our sins?
states point blank that there were Prophets after Jesus'
first visit ...
And the next day we that were of Paul's company
departed, and came unto Caesarea: and we entered
into the house of Philip the evangelist, which was
one of the seven; and abode with him. And the same
man had four daughters, virgins,
which did prophesy.
Now there were in the church that was at Antioch
and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called
Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had
been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
And Judas and Silas, being
exhorted the brethren with many words, and confirmed
And as we tarried there many days, there came down
from Judæa a certain
Prophet, named Agabus.
And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle,
and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus
saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem
bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall
deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.
the Spiritually inspired declaration of God's will and
purpose which is yet to happen. The events in the entire
book of Revelation are yet to happen, so St. John must have
been a Prophet. By the way, the Revelation was written in
about 90 AD ... that is, AFTER Jesus.
Surely the Lord
GOD will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret
unto His servants the Prophets.
Prophet is a man or woman that hears God Word and shares it
with others ... Are not Peter, Paul and many others over the
years ... Prophets?
uses mankind to share His Word.
THIS is the
Spiritual gift of of Prophecy.
1 Corinthians 13:2
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand
all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have
all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and
have not charity, I am nothing.
speaking to CHRISTIANS ...
PROPHECY was one of the Spiritual gifts that is given by the
HOLY SPIRIT to Christians.
Having then gifts differing according to the Grace
that is given to us, whether
let us prophesy according to the proportion of
if we are to believe that if there are no longer Prophets,
does that mean that EVERYTHING that God has planned has
already been revealed?
there will be MORE Prophets.
But this is that which was spoken by the Prophet Joel
(Joel 2:28-29); And it shall come to pass
in the last days, saith
God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh:
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
and your young men shall see visions, and your old
men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my
handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my
they shall prophesy
know who God will choose and use as a Prophet:
And when the chief priests and scribes saw the
wonderful things that He did, and the children
crying in the Temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son
of David; they were sore displeased, And said unto
Him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith
unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth
of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
The word of
God may come through a child! In fact, one of the four major
Prophets of the Bible was just a child when he was called by
God to prophesy:
Then the Word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Before
I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before
thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee,
and I ordained thee a Prophet unto the nations. Then
said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I
am a child. But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am
a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send
thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt
Be not afraid of their faces: for I am
with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.
Then the LORD put forth His hand, and touched my
mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put
my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee
over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out,
and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down,
to build, and to plant.
mistaken, there are many false prophets in the world today,
but there ARE Prophets of God as well. Does your face hold
the doubt or condemnation that God spoke of when He told
Jeremiah not to fear the faces of the people?
mind and heart when you contemplate on whether or not there
are still Prophets of God, delivering His Word to us on
Earth today. If you're waiting for someone with a long robe,
sandals, a beard, a staff and emitting an aura around his
head ... you will be waiting for a long time.
people like you and I ...
1 Corinthians 1:26-28
For ye see your calling,
brethren, how that not many wise
men after the flesh,
not many mighty,
not many noble,
But God hath chosen the foolish
things of the world to confound the wise;
and God hath chosen the weak things
of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
And base things of the world, and
things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things
which are not, to bring to nought things that are.
