Potentially Prophetic

To be honest, I don't know where I come down on the prophecy debate, assuming anyone is actively debating the issue. I think it's possible that the office of Prophet has ceased, as the Scripture suggests in Hebrews chapter 1: "God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son," who would presumably have the final word. However, I'm not absolutely positive that the function of the prophet has passed; Paul did say in 1 Corinthians 14 that we were to "desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy," and that was after Jesus had ascended on high. Certainly there have been significant generations pass through the history of the Church where there have been no prophetic voices raised proclaiming things to come. The entire history of the Reformation seems to have passed with nobody noteworthy claiming to be a prophet. However, I concede the possibility that the gift of prophecy may exist in some form in the current generation, and perhaps even more so as the end of our time approaches. But my past exposure to the abuses of the claim make me by nature a bit skeptical of anyone who would claim the office, and I would urge you to exercise a similar caution when you hear people utter things from their lips accompanied by any form of "Thus saith the Lord."


I know some of you are greatly intrigued by end-times prophecies, though, and any blog talking about the last days of America would be remiss to completely disregard the subject. So I will tentatively address the topic, warning you to take these things with the appropriate caution, and, as Paul suggests in 1 Corinthians 14:29, let the prophets speak, and let the hearers judge.


Here is the latest posting I'm aware of from Jonathan Cahn. He has a brief biography available at Wikipedia if you are interested.
