Question: My friend tells me there are prophets living today and that he goes to his services. He also said it had been prophesied that he too was going to be a prophet. Is any of this true or possible?

Answer: We cannot say if any of this is true. But we can say that it is possible. There are definitely true biblical prophets alive today. What the church needs is more of them. There is nothing in the Bible to indicate that the ministry of prophets will cease before Jesus comes. In fact, Ephesians 4:11-12 tells us that prophets are given by Jesus for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry so that the body of Christ will grow.
