Somebody mentioned Martin Luther King.  I think he is a good choice.

OK... I meant Official Prophet.  Accepted by the main Jewish and/or Christian Churches as speaking on God's behalf.  There's a whole raft in the Bible... then nothing, as far as I know.

Has God given up on us?

Interesting.  That was the same question people were asking when John the Baptist entered his commission.

Why has there been no "Prophets" in the Judeo Christian world since Biblical times?  Or has there?

(apologies if it's a dumb question)

The first prophet was Samuel, whom interacted with and anointed Israel's first two kings.  Prophets tended to minister to the king to explain to him what God's will was.  When Jerusalem was destroyed, there ceased to be prophets until the exile was over.  At that time Zerubabbel was commissioned as governor of Judea.  And prophets emerged again preaching the reconstruction of the temple.

After the temple was completed, the Jews were quickly exiled from authority by a Persian general after the high priest's brother murdered him in the temple.  From that point on until Jesus came, there ceased to be prophets, and it follows the God-anointed kingship of Jerusalem.

So it is evident that there is a connection between kings of Israel an prophets.  The moshiac (messiah) is anointed by God through a prophet.  THUS, the Hasmoneans were never legitimate kings because they were never anointed by a prophet.  

Not surpisingly, a prophet didn't show up until Jesus came into the world.  When John the Baptist began preaching, the Jews anticipates that the Messiah would be anointed by him.  John the Baptist ended his commission AFTER anointing Jesus as moshiac.

Jesus continues to rule to this day and His Spirit is with the Church to reveal His will.  Prophets aren't foretold to come until the two witnesses begin their testimony in sackcloth (Revelation) to rebuild the temple.  The two witnesses are a quote from Zechariah 4, regarding the anointment of a priest and king to rebuild the temple.

It is important to determine whether or not the temple in Revelation 11 is talking about the Church or a literal building. From there, we can determine when prophecy will return.

Acts 2:17 "'In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.

I have been hearing we are in the last days for a long time now...

The last days refers to the last days of the Jewish nation under the old covenant.  Jeremiah prophecied that God would make a new covenant with His people.  That new covenant was made and confirmed by Jesus.  Shortly after, the Holy Spirit was poured out on the disciples and that inspired Peter to quote Joel chapter 2.  The disciples would then preach the Gospel to all nations to which they were scattered, and their disciples recieved the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

After that, the end of the Jewish nation, its temple, and its priesthood came at the hands of the Romans.  And for over 2,000 years, the Jewish people were considered as appaling as Jerusalem's local land fill (which was called Gahenna, or hell.)  

To this day, the old covenant has still not been restored.  

Just before Rome went to war with Judea, the Church entered great tribulation at the hands of the Roman Emperor Nero.  This period is called both the Times of the Gentiles and the Great Tribulation (which occurs during that time.)

As Paul said, God has not forgotten His people.  Paul looked forward to their restoration, but under the new covenant, not the old.

So yes, the last days have been happening since the day Jesus first came.  To the Jews first, then the Gentiles.

Because it's a fabricated self-fulfilling prophecy of an ancient pastoral society.

Um prophets usually get cast out as heretics and end up founding a new religion or end up in the looney bin. Heck you read my posts about the whole God free-will the bible is wrong and most of the religions are wrong I could be...... now send me some cash so I can tell God you are good to go and on his side.

Ellen G White is recognised as a prophet by Seventh Day Adventist Christians, a fairly small but widespread religion with  considerable interests in publishing, health   and  education.

She is an unusual case, and probably not well known outside that church.  In her words prophecy is a gift from god. Its truth is determined by how it meets biblical standards. If it is in line with biblical truths it is genuine prophecy. If not then it must be questioned. Ie. prophecy can neither add to, nor take away from, the fundamental truths of the bible.

During her lifetime Ellen White wrote more than 5,000 periodical articles, 40 books, and reported over 2000 visual/aural paranormal experiences, most of which she was convinced were communications with supernatural entities including various angels and sometimes Jesus. Today over 100 titles are available in English, including compilations from her 50,000 manuscript pages.
http://en.wikipedia..../Ellen_G._White

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world..

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.
