There Can Be No True Prophets Today, Why True Prophets Nolonger Exist In This Generation


A NUMBER of countries in southern Africa have become ‘prophet countries.’ Whereas Japan is known for technology, America for power, Brazil for soccer and Jamaica for reggae, Zimbabwe, among other developing African countries have become synonymous with ‘prophets.’

The prophets have even eclipsed politicians in fame and wealth. They have millions of followers and they could easily become formidable political entities. One cannot play down the influence of the prophet movements across the continent. While I have laboured much through this column to highlight that these prophets have soiled rather than embellish the good name of Christianity, the million dollar question that will not leave many people’s minds is: are there any true prophets today? I have, at times, taken a beating for roundly condemning all the modern day prophets. Surely there should be one or two prophets in the whole world, they argue. Can all the prophets be false? Are they all misleading people willingly?

Well, it is important in this regard to give a biblical definition of a prophet. There is a world of difference between the people celebrated as prophets today and those that are prophets according to the Bible. A true prophet is nothing more than a spokesperson for God. He speaks God’s mind to the people and not about his own things like ID numbers. A prophet speaks forth under divine inspiration. In the Old Testament a prophet could be used (as a mouth piece) to predict future events. This was simply an element, a single element of prophecy which is captured in Deut 18:22. On the contrary, what we see in these sprouting prophets is an unholy and self-centred grasp of this single element to blind the eyes of many. It must be highlighted that this element on its own does not and will not make anyone a prophet. N’angas and fetish priests, throughout all history have been known to be able to do the same. False prophets have done the same and it is mischievous for any person who claims to see into the future to claim to be a prophet. That is work that even the lowest evil angel in the devil’s ranks can do with relative ease. Not all accurate predictions are from God

There can be no true prophet today

It is important to understand what the purpose of a prophet was before heedlessly rushing to confer the titles to mortal sinful human beings. The prophet, as stated before, existed to give a mass message to the children of God. Since the beginning of creation, there was a time when God spoke through the prophets to his people. It was an Old Testament epoch when God would use the prophet to give a message that had a bearing on all the children of Israel. An example would be God instructing Moses on several occasions and Moses (as a mouthpiece) had to convey the words from God. Prophets where thus given divine revelation. In fact, it is the prophets who wrote the Bible as we know it. When the written revelation was complete, there was no longer  any need for the gift of prophecy and this is clear in Hebrews 1:1-2 “God who at many times and in diverse manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken unto us by His Son…”  Now, the simple question which exposes all the numerous religious charlatans posing as God’s spokesmen today is: if God spoke through his Son pertaining to this era it defies the mind why any child of God would revert to the Old Testament style of prophets? Can these so called prophets claim to be any better than Jesus Christ who spoke unto us in this era?

It is sad and infuriating that we have men and women, the so called prophets and prophetesses, drawing people back to the old style of prophets. In short, in the Old Testament God spoke through prophets acting as mediators between God and men. Today, however, the Bible has made it abundantly clear that our only mediator is Jesus Christ 1 Tim 2:5. There is only one mediator between man and God-the man Jesus Christ. God does not bestow the gift of prophecy as people are being deceived into believing today God speaks to people through his Word. It is actually ironic that many people who never get to read the Word itself want to hear and claim to hear the audible voice of God through some sinful money-mongering human being. Millions flocking to these prophetic churches have made themselves vulnerable to attacks from the devil as he appears as an angel of light to deceive as is happening today.

Jesus warns in Matthew 7:22-23: “Many will say to me in that day, Lord Lord, have we not PROPHECIED in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess to them, “I never knew you, depart from me you workers of iniquity.”

God has spoken through his Son in the last days. Do not be deceived brethren.
