Testing Today’s Prophecy: Does Today’s Prophecy Measure up to Biblical Standards?

The biblical prophet was understood to be the mouthpiece of God, and therefore prophecy was 100% accurate in doctrine and prediction. There is no "sub-standard" prophecy in scripture. Therefore, modern day claims to prophecy are not true - they do not measure up to the biblical standard.

Are Charismatic Gifts for Today?

Is the Charismatic movement a gift of God to His church? Has God revisited His church with special gifts through the Charismatic movement? The author's answer is a big NO. The special gifts of the Holy Spirit must be understood in line with salvation history. God gave these gifts to authenticate the ministry of the apostles, not as signs of regeneration. Through the Spirit, Christ continues His work in His church through the ordinary means of grace.
