Who are Prophets (and Apostles) of God

According to the Bible


For I [am] the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord GOD. Ezekiel 12:25

Apostles vs Prophets

Prophets and Apostles are not the same thing. Many people are confused about what these positions are and have used them interchangeably just as they do with prophet and teacher. Please see Who were the Apostles for more information about apostles.

True Prophets are NOT PSYCHICS! They are inspired messengers of God. They are rare and NOT well known. In Bible times there few real prophets. The Bible warns us several times about "MANY" false prophets in the end times. We see this today. A real prophet will NEVER go around bringing attention to themselves by telling everyone they are a prophet. Do real Prophets of God exist today?

James M. Frye has written an excellent article about the Prophets from Bible times and how they compare to those today who claim to be Prophets along with scriptural support. Some of the scriptures he uses are talking about Heaven, but this is still very good. Please read his article at Are There Prophets Today?

True Prophets are described as

The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand. Isaiah 14:24

Messages given by prophets of God should be as follows

The Test of a True Prophet

Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he [was] faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him.Daniel 6:4

People today love to bring attention to themselves with false claims in order to bring glory to themselves. As I said above, true prophets of God are not going to go around telling everybody they are God's prophet. For these FEW chosen will not flatter people with fortune telling. This 'personal prophecy' stuff going on is a bunch of garbage to flatter and charm you into being self-focused and believing a bunch of lies.

One of the biggest points about true Prophets is that the LORD HIMSELF APPOINTS THEM. They are NOT self-appointed as we see today. Mom and I believe that true Prophets of God for today have most likely ceased.

God's modus operandi is not to condemn, threaten or bring destruction...and least of all, He will NEVER bring a word that will bring His children under a controlling spirit or back under the law. HELLOOO! THAT is the exclusive work of satan and his miscreants! God always brings release, forgiveness, love, hope, joy and peace. -www.revivaldotcom.co.za/index.php/ct-menu-item-7-
