Do not exalt yourself in the presence of the King,
Do not stand in the place of the great,

For it is better that He say to you,
"Come up here."
Than that you should be put lower in the presence of the prince.

Acts 5:36 For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody, to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain, and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought.

Romans 1:22 While boasting of their wisdom they became utter fools,

Romans 3:27 Where then is the boasting? It is excluded. By what manner of law? Of works? No, but by a law of faith.

1 Corinthians 9:15 But I have used none of these things, and I don't write these things that it may be done so in my case, for I would rather die, than that anyone should make my boasting void.

1 Corinthians 9:16 If I go on preaching the Good News, that is nothing for me to boast of, for the necessity is imposed upon me, and alas for me, if I fail to preach it!

1 Corinthians 15:31 I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

2 Corinthians 1:12 For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience, that in holiness and sincerity of God, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God we behaved ourselves in the world, and more abundantly toward you.

2 Corinthians 5:12 For we are not commending ourselves to you again, but speak as giving you occasion of boasting on our behalf, that you may have something to answer those who boast in appearance, and not in heart.

God will always rise up prophets. We are His spokes people. He gives us the words and we speak them as He gives them. We are so hated by the devil and his followers. So were the prophets of long ago.

Why would we need them since we have been given the Holy Spirit? It is the Holy Spirit that will lead you to all truth, some some so called prophet that says he or she is of Christ. We have been warned to stay away from people like Paul.

John is Exactly right and has spoken well.

In 1 Cor. 14:29-32 Paul is explaining to the assembled church that they should let the prophets speak 2 or three and the others to judge what is being said. And if anything else be revealed to any that are in attendance for them to speak also and let the others be quiet and listen. For we may all prophesy one by one so that all may learn and be comforted.

Yes, there are modern day prophets. And, of course you need to ask the Holy Spirit (RUACH HA KODESH) for guidance in discerning the TRUE ones from the false ones. EPHESIANS 4:11 states the 5 main "offices" within that Church today and PROPHETS is one of them. They are "lifted up" to help minister to the Church. I would personally say they are needed especially for these End-Times. The LORD (YAHUVEH) is AMIGHTYWIND!

Please read Hebrew 1:1-2. Also 1 Tim.2:5.Then listen to God when He tells us the prophets were until John. This is most important.
O.T. prophets was given a direct vision or insight from God to speak unto Gods people. N.T. prophet are given the words and teaching of Christ to speak and teach unto all mankind. One cannot tell of things in the future becaause we are not promised another day. Therefor we can only tell of future events already spoken of by Christ.

Yes. The scriptures supprot that we should listen to prophets. The problem is discerning which are false. I believe those who earn large amnts of money from a spiritual gift should be scrutinized carefully. Probably false.

What is a modern day prophet? Are you asking do we have prophets today? There are many prophets today, but some of them are FALSE prophets. Like this guy in Florida who is making people have engraved into their skin 666 and they're saying it's a sign of peace...hogwash..he's a FALSE prophet. You will know one of God's prophets when you hear Him and if you both have the same Spirit abiding in you, the Holy Spirit, you will know them by their fruit and anointing.
