Biblical Basis for a Modern Prophet

Evidence from both the Old and New Testaments establish the presence of a true prophet in God’s end-time church

The Hebrew and Greek words translated “prophet” convey the idea of receiving communications from God and then being His spokesperson. The New Testament makes it clear that the prophetic gift, as well as other spiritual gifts, will be active in God’s church until the end.

The Old and New Testaments are to be used to determine the validity of any modern-day claim to the prophetic gift. God’s end-time church will be identified by the following: they will keep His commandments, have the testimony of Jesus (prophetic gift), and preach God’s last message to the world. The phrase “testimony of Jesus” in Revelation 12:17, as understood within the context of Revelation, is the prophetic gift.
