I Corinthians 14:29 tells us that in meetings of Christian prophets speak and other judge. Many modern translations mistranslated this passage, saying “prophets” are speakers, teachers, preachers, who knows whom?
But, the original Greek says prophets. Here is the Greek version. προφῆται δὲ δύο ἢ τρεῖς λαλείτωσαν, καὶ οἱ ἄλλοι διακρινέτωσαν· The word prophets is in bold. Our letters here are prophatai.
Perhaps you can tell the Greek letters: P as in pi, like p-r-square, r is the letter that looks like a long p, o is obvious, phi is next – like Phi Beta Kappa or any other common fraternity, a which is the n with a tail on it and finally “ai” which is the Greek plural. I go into such detail because prophets are supposed to be giving the message in church not simply speakers, preachers and teachers. Prophets are a special group provided by God.
Why? Because prophets have been anointed and chosen by God and they know the Word of God, which, frankly is what we need to hear in churches. But how many churches are preaching tolerance, doctrine, good citizenship, heaven knows what?
I am weary of such substitutes for the truth. Man is craving this. Ask the Lord to show you the prophets, for they will advise us according to His word, not to man’s.
For starters, a reliable prophet is Kim Clement, now deceased, and also Lance Wallnau is good too. You can find more on YouTube.
