Prophets of God, being direct spokesmen for God, played a specific and needed role in disclosing to mankind God’s will1,4,7. In fact, they were serving Christian’s today with their predictions5. However, prophesies were only a part or portion3,6 of God’s message. When the time came that all of God’s message was revealed they would no longer be needed3,5.
God’s revelation to mankind was completed with the coming of Jesus (the “cornerstone”7) and his full gospel message1,3,4,5,6 (a complete “foundation”7). By the time of Peter’s letters, God’s prophets had apparently all past, replaced by teachers2 which were similar in nature (but didn’t literally speak God’s words).
Therefore, prophets of God do not exist today. Any “prophet of God” could only be a false prophet.
