Where Are Our Prophets?

"Surely, the Lord God does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets." Amos 3:7 RSV

If the Lord is still working in today's world then according to God's own word, John the Baptist could not have been the last prophet. So where are today's prophets? Where are the watchmen who warn of impending disaster? Where are those who shout from the hills, "Repent! For the day of the Lord is at hand." There are those who proclaim that they are 'baptized in the Holy Spirit' and speak in tongues ( not another language, but babbling like babies in a language that no one but the Spirit can understand). The gifts of the Holy Spirit are so much more than speaking in tongues. Where are the healers? Where are the sages? Where are the miracle workers? Where are the prophets?

"Make love your aim, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy." 1 Corinthians 14:1 RSV

Annie, you ask a question with the prophecy, "Surely, the Lord God does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets." Amos 3:7 RSV. I declare the gospel as Christ Jesus died for our sins according to the scriptures, He was buried and raised the third day according to all the scriptures, none ommitted. The passage you quote was fulfilled in Christ Jesus, and in Christ is all understanding. God by grace has sent me to preach the glorious gospel of grace and there is warning, and admonishment in this crooked generation. There has also been the grace to preach the gospel free of charge these past 16 years. For in the generation of judgment (look at Christ Jesus) "all the prophets prophesy falsely and my people love it" according to the purpose of God.

Dear Daniel - thank you for visiting my site, however, I am confused by your response. The disciples prophesied after the death and resurrection of Jesus. Also, The revealation was given to John long after Jesus had returned to heaven. These people were operating within the economy of the 'Gentiles' - or the church economy which continues today.
