Amos 3:7
Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
---Kevin on 9/11/10


Diligent_Dave: "This power, this priesthood, like Peter, James and John on the Mount of Transfiguration, must receive it from Elijah."

All power comes only from God.
---Steveng on 2/12/09


If one would gather all the prophets - both true and false - from the beginning of time and set them in a large field, the true prophets would immediately recognized each other because they are one in the spirit with God.
---Steveng on 2/12/09


If God spoke to prophets anciently in open vision, by dreams, clearly and understandably, why not today? The 2 prophets will be two men who will have the sealing power of Elijah, to be able to seal the heavens. This power, this priesthood, like Peter, James and John on the Mount of Transfiguration, must receive it from Elijah. He held this power in his lifetime, and was carried away in a chariot to heaven so he could restore this Godly power before the resurrection. God will work his miracle, though the nations of the earth gather together against the Jews.
---Diligent_Dave on 2/12/09


I believe to test a prophet is to see if what they say comes to pass. If it doesn't, then he is a false prophets. In the bible, the prophets came to warn the church about walking rightly and to give them a word from God. I think prophets also give words of correction, rebuke, and also can give accurate future events that will happen. They also usually flow in healng and miracles also. I have been propesied that I am likened to a Prophetess in the bible, I would have never called myself that unless God had not sent someone to tell me so. But I felt it for years as he would give me prophetic words and they would always come to pass within a month or sooner and they would be confirmed by 2 or more. Prophets also get visions and dreams.

Anne: What did Satan do all throughout the OT and even just after the birth of Jesus?

What did Satan do after Jesus' resurrection?

What other main event in biblical history that is similar to Revelation's Tribulation? (most important, how people reacted)

What is the main premise of Revelation?

what are the duties of angels?

Read Revelation through the eyes of a child. Do not try to interpret what you read. Do not pay attention to verse numbers. Do not use concordances, novels, other author's interpretations, and other Christian reference books. If possible, write out the book of Revelation without verse numbers.

Steveng~ Thanks. It describes the army as locusts I believe, and mighty...fearless. I thought God used people, and not angels to fight His wars. How can people or angels in the hosts of heaven come here from heaven to do that...I can't perceive that exactly. I thought God would be using humans who are alive during the Revelations period to live to fight and conquer in this final battle/war between good and evil. What are your thoughts? Thank you.
---Anne on 2/10/09


anne: "Steveng~ I also asked for your thoughts about God's army as mentioned in Rev. and Joel etc."

God's Army is the Host of Heaven, the mighty angels who do His commandments and listen to His every word.

Genesis 32:1-2
Joshua 5:14-15
1 Kings 19:10
1 Kings 22:19
Psalms 103:20
Isaiah 13:4-5
Revelation 12:7

It is this army who is let loose during all of Revelation.

Jer 14:14-15 / Jer 23:14,25 / Matt 7:15, 24:11 / Mark 13:22 / 2 Peter 2:1
These are some teachings about false prophets. There are a lot more false prophets than real ones referenced in the Bible. How do you know who is true? Duet 18:17-21 False prophets speak against that which is already written in the word of God, and if something they say does not happen, they are a false prophet. A prophet of God is never wrong. Also in the NT see in Gal 1:6-9. You have everything already though in the scripture that you need for life and for salvation. Are you not listening to the word? You don't need a sign, you need faith.
---Dan on 2/9/09




Steveng~ I agree with Nana, and it is good to hear your hopeful spirit. I had a few questions still below I was hoping you might answer. Thanks!

Steveng,
Just want to say that I am happy for you! You sound so glad and cheery and hopeful, May the Lord keep you where you are at.

Steveng~ I also asked for your thoughts about God's army as mentioned in Rev. and Joel etc. What are your thoughts on that. Thanks. God's blessings to you too.
---Anne on 2/6/09


Anne: "Steveng~ You said that the 2 prophets will not only warn Christians, but all people of the world to repent."

The whole human race is in God's plan together - Jew and Gentile, rich and poor, president and common person. God doesn't want anyone to go to hell. All of God's prophets are here not to save the saved, but to save the sinners.

These are perilous times. Love has surely waxed cold even among Christians. Denominational churches don't provide what today's Christian really need to put on the whole armor of God. Living a Christian life is a 24/7 lifestyle not a once a week pep talk. . They must meet daily as suggested in the bible.
---Steveng on 2/6/09


miche3754: "I meant to ask who do you think the 2 prophets in Revelations are or will be?"

We don't know. Only God knows. What it says in Revelation is all we know. Don't try to add anything to it like most Christians. It's unfortunate that denominational Christians will not recognize them as being from God because they don't conform to their church's ideology. Jesus did not conform to the current ideology at that time and look how he was treated.

All you need to know is to seek God's face daily, obey and do his commandments, and pray daily for your protections as the time grows short.

Praying you peace of mind, joy of spirit, good health and many great friends to share them with in Jesus' name.

Steveng~ What you said is exactly what I have been thinking. Just as in Noah's day and Noah warned the people to repent, as well as Jonah and on and on. God's mercy is so great and ever so faithful.

Much of the book of Revelation speaks of this actually(God's final act of mercy and call to repentance or face God's furious wrath.) From what I read in Revelation, Joel etc., it seems as though God also has an 'army' that He is preparing to convict people of the need to repent and turn from their idols. (Rev.9:16-21, Joel 2:5-14, Rev. 9:3-10)

What are your thoughts about the 'army of God?'

How do you think they will warn the Christians? Will they warn the Christians to not be lukewarm etc?

Do you think these prophets primary responsibility will be to call the world to repentance, and convince the world of God's truths?

You and I view corporate churches in a very similar fashion. Do you believe they are the beast that 'looks like a lamb but speaks like a dragon?' (Rev. 13:11-14)
---Anne on 2/5/09


miche3754: "Who do you believe they are?"

Anne: "Do you believe they are 2 literal people?"

God does not change. He always send prophets when something major is going to happen to warn not only Christians, but all the people in the world to give them one last chance to repent. And this time is not going to be any different. There are prophets today who are preaching God's word on a smaller scale (without compensation like many false prophets), but unfortunately no one is listening - not even the Christians. I don't know who they are, but only what they will do. Yes, they are two literal people - that's all God needs.

Andy, I have come across many people who claimed to be a prophet. As I examined what they teach with what is written in scripture (Acts 17:11) they all have been FALSE PROPHETS.

Also you say you are a Man of God. As I study scripture, of all of the people mentioned in the New Testament, there has been only one person who was ever called MAN OF GOD, and his name was not Andy.
---Rob on 2/5/09


steveng,
I am really enjoying your posts on this subject.
Not many want to tell the truth about the 2 prophets.
The coming of the 2 prophets will signify the end is near. So, of course some want to stick their heads in the sand and pretend.

Who do you believe they are?
---miche3754 on 2/5/09


i'm a prophet, and nobody accepts me. except of course the unbelievers who see there is something different.quoted from a man of God in the early 20 century

As Paul said: "the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord." (1Cor.14:37) --The apostles, the true witnesses of Christ, have declared (written) all that which they have seen and heard. (1Jhn.1:3-4). So as we read the bible, Jesus, in effect, is teaching us His commandments.

So think about it, why would there be a need for "new prophets" today? God had already manifested all things necessary for the obedience of faith (Rom.16:26). The mystery that was kept secret since the world began have been revealed (Rom.16:25)... and all things that will come to pass until the end of the world (and after that) have been revealed. So, what would these "new prophets" prophesy about?
---manny on 2/4/09


Bryan: "I believe that the last two prophets aren't just two individual men, but they represent the 144,000...Israel and Judah..."

They are two witnesses, not 144,000 witnesses. So 144,000 prophets are dead in the streets? God forbid!


Anne: God is not a god of confusion nor a god that hides his intentions. Christians today use their vast worldly knowledge (Christian reference books, concordances authors opinions, etc) to twist verses. Read the bible through the eyes of a child and you'll understand more. Children are not yet corrupted by wordly knowledge. God reveals hiself through metaphors, similes, and parables that children can understand.
---Steveng on 2/4/09


I believe that the last two prophets aren't just two individual men, but they represent the 144,000...Israel and Judah...they are called the two olive trees. they are called the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth. Lampstands are also used to describe the churches in the beginning of Revelation. Moses won't be one, because every man is appointed to die only once. I believe Elijah will be sent to prepare the two witnesses to receive the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which is the seal of the Living God, and they shall prophesy. Still studying though! Prophets most definately exist! Even throughout the new testament! What about Agabus? What about Phillips four daughters who were prophetesses?

If you do not deeply understand what is going on in the world, you may not realize that the people who claim to be the ones prophecied in the Bible, often try to get in first and confuse the believer. Satan imitates but usually before the planned event. Like the Antichrist coming claiming to be Christ BEFORE the real Jesus Christ returns. They claim to have had a Trinity before the Church declared the doctrine of such. And so on. They know the Bible by reading it, so they can confuse us. In fact that is their main M.O.

---Anne on 2/4/09


Then you, and all the others who believe as you, will not recognize the last two prophets mentioned in Revelation. And you will rejoice over their dead bodies, and party, and send gifts one to another, because these two prophets tormented you and all the others that live on the earth.

And you will also mock all the other prophets before them during these end-times.

"For ALL the prophets and the law prophesied UNTIL John." (Mat.11:13)

The prophets were until John, because from then "the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it." (Luk.16:16)--How was the kingdom preached?

"God, who...spake IN TIME PAST unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son..."(Heb.1:1-2)

The kingdom is preached (in these last days) by the Son. That's why in Mat.17:5 God said about the son, "hear ye him." And even to these days (since we are in the last days), Jesus still preaches to us the gospel... through the writings of the apostles.

Prophets know the future bad things that will defiinitely happen to people unless they take the appropriate evasive action. We need to read the Bible and follow all the instructions in the OT and NT. Read the hundreds of verses about the End Times so that you know what to do, and can start planning and gathering the necessary equipment and information so that you will be able to help yourself and other people through the tribulation. Learn about the black economy to help you and your family and society in general, when the dollar and Euro crash. Most of the preparation is a change in mind-set, to prepare for the emotional impact of job loss and home loss and rioting and martial law.

A prophet calls people to repent and tells them the truth of their situation and what it will lead to if they do not repent. Steveng, I think your lips and your behaviour do not match. You say do not mock prophets, but I have been telling people the truth, and telling them to repent, and you have done nothing but confront me and accuse me. Make up your mind whose side you are on. You cannot play both sides of the fence.

1 COR 13:8-10 Love never fails, but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away, if there are tongues, they will cease, if there is knowledge, it will be done away. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. My observations of my encounters with the above were: they arrived early, talked to various people, observed individuals, etc. These individuals and observations was their subject material.

What is the definition of the "true prophet or prophetess" as used here.

I don't have much scripture to support my opinion, so take it for what it is worth.

I believe that God is working, perahps not as the masses think. I am starting to wonder if the internet is the next major instrument that God will be using in the forseeable years. I am exploring how to use it more effectively for christian growth. I suspect that the reason many of us are here now is because the local church doesn't support the kinds of questions and interest that we have. The local church is not very successful at encourageing, stimulating, motivating christians to godly christian living, Biblical good works.

When Jesus decides to make a move, it will be by the power of the Holy Spirit. Everything God does is to bring Him glory. When the Hebrews were in Egypt, they weren't expecting Moses to come and turn the world upside down. Nor were they expecting Jesus to come and turn the world upside down, so why should we expect the body of Christ to be prepared for the Lord's last great revival? What would be the glory in knowing God's every move? When the Lord gives the command to His prophets, it will be a complete surprise to all of the shepherds in the body of Christ who are leading God's people astray! God moves in the supernatural! Every knee shall bow!

The Early Church had Prophets and Prophtesses.

Act 11:27 And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch.

Act 13:1 Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets 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.

Act 21:9 And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy.

Bryan~ There is a lot of division rather than unity in the Christian community. I don't see what you're speaking of happening right now in the real world.

When I read the Bible, this 'latter rain' concept seems like a real future possibility and God has always found a way to shower down His mercy and reveal His truth. I just don't see it happening now, in the way you claim it is. How do you see this occurring in this present day?

Let me reassure you that I'm not part of any movement. I'm a son of the Living God, grafted in and attached to the house of Jacob by the Blood of Yeshua. The Holy Spirit is the One who has taught me about the latter rain, and trust me it is truth in the scriptures. Even Smith Wigglesworth prophesied about these days, and it is all through the Bible. Do you seriously think that the day of Pentecost was the only outpouring of the Holy Spirit? Even Jesus said that we would do all of the works that He did and greater!These are the days of the latter rain! These are the days of the outpouring of the best wine! Jesus is coming for a glorious bride! Not a people who are dead in the works of the Lord!

Concerning Latter Rain:

Don't get caught up into any movement that has fancy names. The basic belief is that of restoration and preparing the world for the coming of Christ. This group's efforts, although they appear to be biblical, will be in vain. What they want to accomplish may seem valent, but go against many end time prophesies.

This blog is too short to tell you everything. Do an online search for "latter rain." Dont only read what the group says, but also read what the critics say. Remember: test the spirits.

For those of you who believe that prophets are no longer needed...

You are the people who will believe that the two prophets mentioned in Revelation are not from God because of your belief. You shall rejoice over their dead bodies, make merry, and send gifts to each another because these two prophets tormented you and everyone living on earth. How sad when Christians will not recognize them.

There are prophet everywhere, but no one is listening to them. Most Christians believe that Christians should belong to a (denominational) church. Prophets do not belong to any denominational church and are not welcomed into them.
---Steveng on 1/28/09


Joel 2:23 mentions the latter rain as well as James 5:7. The day of Pentecost was the early rain, but now we're living in the days of the latter rain, and it shall be much greater than the former (early) rain. It is also referred to as times of refreshing from the Lord, and that is mentioned in Acts 3:19-21. We are living in the time of the completion of the mystery of God, just before the sound of the last trumpet Rev 10:7 and 1 Cor 15:51-54. These are the days of the fullness of the Gentiles Romans 11:25-27. Yeshua is about to pour out His Spirit in such abundance that it will make the day of Pentecost look like a mere drizzle! We are calledto provoke the Jews to jealousy, so all of Israel shall be saved!

Many believers think that we're here to be blessed and caught up, but in reality we're called to be a blessing and to die for the glory of Yeshua's name. The Lord is about to confront His people, and call them into one accord to receive the greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit in history! He is about to glorify Himself through His church! Just read Eph 2:8-10 then Eph 4:13. We are called to be of one body, one faith, one God and Father! We are called to be of one accord! There is neither Jew nor Gentile in the kingdom of God, but only the sons and daughters of God. These are the days of the full manifestation of the sons and daughters of God in Christ, and all of creation shall witness it!

I believe in the restoration an latter rain too. I hear so few speak of that though! Please tell me more of your Biblical insights on the restoration and latter rain. Explain to all what you mean by 'latter rain' too..thanks. Tell us more about what you believe will occur before the 'harvest' arrives. Thanks. Please provide scripture too.

Yes, there are still prophets today!
Acts 11:27 and Acts 21:8-10 True prophets aren't on tv, and usually when they prophesy it has nothing to do with prosperity or sowing seed to get rich. They usually command repentance to God's people, so you can be sure that the true prophets are going to be rising up in the body of Christ before Jesus returns, because His Word says that He's coming for a glorious bride, not a house divided against it's self! These are the days of the restoration of all things, and the latter rain before the Lord reaps His harvest! Pentecost was only a sip of what Jesus has in store for His people in these last days! We will do all of the works that our Lord did, and greater!

The revealing spirit of the Holy Ghost will show you if you ask, I did as a littleboy(1974) and it was revealed to me that Europe would rise to global power & all the nations of the world would want to join, That was 15 years before the berlin wall came down in 1989 that made the rise of the E.U possible.
I told this to everyone i met back then, many laughed at me who don't laugh at me anymore.

My "?" is would you even listen to that person anyways or would you just chalk it up as another "False Prophet" because you don't understand or believe it?

Yes. God said that he will pour out his spirit upon his people who will dream dreams, prophecy and do great works in his name. We do have prophets that do tell what will take place in the future, That is the whole meaning of one being a true prophet. Many may claim to be one, but if it doesn't come to pass, then they aren't a prophet.

The Bible defines what "prophecy" is, which the apostle John learned in a sharp rebuke from the angel he kept trying to worship: "Don't do that! I am a fellow slave with you & your brothers who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, because the testimony about Jesus is the spirit of prophecy" (Rev. 19:10; HCSB). Keep that in mind, along with asking our Lord for His Guidance, and you will see we have truly entered the age of the false prophet some time ago.

I was familiar with a Calif. church that was deeply into prophecy. They predicted natural disasters, earthquakes, etc. - something that scientists also predicted. Several people from that church moved away to protect themselves. Of course, they stated that if the natural disasters did not occur, it would be because the people repented of their inquity and God relented. How does one verify such a thing?

If you knew me, I would be the most unlikely to be a "Charismaniac"

Nevertheless, it was not me who noticed that gift, it was wife. Too many things seeming obvious to me, and being able to discern spiritual things--observed by others as eerily dead-on-- convinced me of this gift.

Yet, I always submit the prophecies to give Jesus the glory. There are too many yahoos giving it a bad name, and true prophets do not call attention to themselves.

Prophecy is a gift from God to His people, but it does NOT supplant Scripture. That is settled.

It is, is God's particular message to a particular people. Sometimes, in the pulpit, I have uttered things unprepared and unscripted--all my messages are scripted.

Some were messages, warning that came about, another was so upsetting to a person, he left the service to have a cig in the car. I have no idea what I said then, but it knew he rejected God's conviction.

God speaks to the heart and then confirmation comes form HIS spoken and written Word. The connection has been restored. It is always God speaking and it will always confirm its self by two or more witnesses.

Lee, If one is a prophet what he prophy's will come to be, if not he is a false prophet.
---Thomas on 5/8/06


I agree with Rev. Herb's answers. To lee-
I do not believe that any prophet's sayings could be added to the Bible. That would be against Bible teaching (adding to the Word of God) the prophecies that I heard were of a personal nature concerning me. As this person walked by me, I was sitting in a pew, the person turned pointed and said to me exactly, exactly, what I had said to and had ask God about in secret.

I have always heard, and it is my experience, that a prophet who speaks what has come truly from the Spirit merely confirms what you have already heard from Father. In other words, God doesn't have any grandchildren and does not intend for us to get any of our information from others. Even when an earthen vessel is used, it is still His Spirit that speaks through it.

I think Lee is right on. Prophecy is a direct revelation from God. What is his Word if not his direct revelation? It is not for today. Why do we need someone to speak words which the Lord has not spoken already? Did the Lord miss things when creating our Bible? Deut. 18:20-22

Lee,with due respect, but you are being silly in asking can you write it in Bible and I think you mean to be.You can't add to or take from the Word of God written in the Bible.We are warned against it.You know prophecy is from God if it comes true and lines up with His written Word. Remember prophecy is to build up,admonish,warn/protect/prepare for trouble,and help God's people to follow Him. Some things I've seen are shown me so I can pray for those in danger. Intercessory prayer,pray one for another.

mima - are you saying that we can listen to a prophet, write down his or her words, and then include it in the Bible?

What means do we have to validate the utterances of a prophet?

Rickey's right,giving prophecy doesn't make a Prophet. Prophets didn't just foretell future, gave God's Word/will to people,they raised the dead, healed the sick,and even provided a food barrel that was never empty and did many miraculous things. God showed me future events, given through me prophecy in Church,singing prophecy,word of wisdom,word of knowledge,tongues and interpretation,healed the sick,and more,I'd never consider myself a Prophet. Prophets spoke one on one to God. Now,through Jesus Name.

We have prophets today that preach from the word of God, but we have none that tell the future today. We don't need prophets to give us a new revelation from God because everything we need to know is in the bible.
