I have been to some churches where the pastors have said that there is no more gifts of prophecy given anymore because we have everything we need in the Bible. After studying some of the scriptures, (I'm sure there is more ) I believe this is just not the case. Why would Paul write so much about prophecy in 1 Corinthians and Ephesians? Again, I believe that the so-called pastors are regurgitating what they have been taught. And, that most in the church are too lazy to test the words of the pastor themselves by searching the Scriptures. We need to stop listening to the lies of pastors who knowingly or unknowingly say things that go against the Word of God and search for ourselves to find His Truth. I've also been told I can't hear the Lord speaking because everything God has to say has been said in the Bible. That just really upset me because I know I've heard the Lord speak to me very clearly. I mean, Jesus even said that His sheep know His voice. But here are some verses that pertain to the gift of prophecy. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. (I believe this is when Christ comes back that ties into Ephesians 4: 11-13) No, I don't think "that which is perfect is come " is the Bible but The Word (Jesus) at His second coming for it says in Ephesians 4:11-13 And he gave some, apostles; and some prophets;and some, evangelists;and some pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ; Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of god, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ. I don't know about you but I don't think the church if perfect yet and it certainly needs edifying, and most certainly the churches are not unified in our faith. 1 Corinthians 14:3d But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. 1 Corinthians 14:22 Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe. 1 Corinthians 14: 31 For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted. 1 Corinthians 14:39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. 1 Thessalonians 5:20 Despise not prophesyings Joel 2:28-29 And it shall come to pass afterward, That I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and yours sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions: and also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. Acts 2: 17-18 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: The lying wolves have infiltrated the churches and have even the ignorant pastors teaching and preaching there is no more gift of prophesy. Why? I believe it's to weaken the church, to steal the power given to believers that we may use to exhort, to comfort, to speak the truth of God. Isn't that just what Satan loves to do? This kind of heretical teaching has stolen the power of the saints and has rendered them weak and defenseless, and confused. Satan doesn't want believers to know that all have the gift of prophesy because then he would be trembling in fear of the believers walking in the knowledge of the power given to them through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1
