“The testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy” (Rev 19:10)
The Gospel of
God Church is richly endowed with several dozens of prophets and teachers who
serve the congregation and the world at large. Yet, talk of prophets in the
21st Century will sometimes raise eyebrows - even amongst professing Christians
and Bible scholars.
After all, many
will assert that: “the prophets have long ceased to exist”. Thus, as far as
contemporary Christianity often has it, God speaks to man far less today than he
did at any time between the creation of Adam and the Christian congregations
that we find in the scriptures.
the much acclaimed Biblical Prophets like Joel foresaw a future in which
unprecedented spiritual activity and prophecy would ensue amongst God’s people
in the last days. (Acts 2:17-21).
the Biblical Christians, prophets were the rule rather than the exception. The
evangelist Philip, alone, had four prophet daughters alongside other prophets
like Agubus (Acts 21:9-11). Paul, himself a prophet, lays down rules on the
conduct of prophets during Christian worship (Acts 14:1-40) Evidently, he was
not addressing the long departed Old Testament prophets, but those in his Church
as well as future Christian congregations.
advocate against prophecy will often misquote 1 Corinthians 13: 8-13. These
verses talk of a perfect dispensation, when prophecies, tongues, and even
knowledge will cease. Whether there is anything perfect about the times we are
living in today, is an open debate!
knowledge - which is also mentioned to cease along prophecy, incidentally seems
to be on the rise in our times!
are entitled to know of his plans and action at any given time (Amos 3:7) and
they may even inquire of Him (Genesis 25:22-23).
