"Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets."

Amos 3:7

Modern Day Prophets

First let me state that I do not claim to be a "Prophet" myself.  I am not looking for any title to give me credibility.  My only testimony is what God has done in my own life and what He has shown me and spoken to me.  I do, however, believe that the office of Prophet is in operation today, along with all the offices referenced in Ephesians 4.  I believe this because as this scripture states, Christ gave these offices to equip His people UNTIL we reach unity, and become mature in the fullness of Christ.  Clearly this has not yet occurred!

"So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."  Ephesians 4:11-13

In listening to a talk by C. Peter Wagner at a conference in the Moravian Falls in May of 2014, the Holy Spirit touched me in a new way connecting what my heart was experiencing with what my intellect understood.  Before this conference, I had not heard of Wagner.  I came to understand later that his teachings are very controversial in some circles.  All I can tell you is that my spirit confirmed that he was speaking God's TRUTH.  I would recommend his book "Apostles Today" for a more in-depth study.

Make no mistake about it.  You and me were chosen to live at this time for a purpose!  There has been no other time in history like it, and there will be no other time to come which will compare to what we will experience in our lifetime.  Each of us was meant to comprehend our IDENTITY in Christ, and to step into the DESTINY that He has for us.

"In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.  And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory."  Ephesians 1:11-14

A sampling of modern day prophets

Some of these men and women of God may not call themselves prophets either, though God is absolutely using them to break through the lies of the enemy so that the Lord's Truth may shine through.  He wants us to understand the judgment our nation and other nations are facing because we have turned away from Him.
