Example text

There are certain other qualifications. Jesus had a ministry of prophecy and therefore referred to Himself as a prophet (Luke 4:24 and Luke 13:33). Jesus of course was far more than a prophet. 2. A true prophet will show proper humility and will be amenable to advice from other ministry-gifts set in the church. "If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord" (I Cor. 14:37). 3. While the gift of prophecy is infallible when the prophet is perfectly yielded to the Spirit, yet New Testament prophets were not to be considered infallible.

Man cannot do it. He who usurps the position of an apostle is a false apostle. Some attempted to do this in the Early Church and were denounced as false apostles. Speaking of these Paul said, "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works" (II Cor.

Moreover, just as some people misinterpret Scripture, so it is possible to misinterpret a prophecy. In all cases people need spiritual discernment to understand either. Old Testament prophets on occasion failed to recognize the time of fulfillment of their prophecies. Some make that mistake today. For example the Bible speaks of apocalyptic judgments taking place during the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord. That time is not far off, but it has not yet come. When folk are given the impression that some catastrophic event is to happen immediately, and it fails to take place, they are prone to lose confidence in the gift altogether.
