  • why is there no edit key?!

    The biblical prophets were to announce the coming of Christ. No one save the Father knows when His second coming will be.

  • Because Christ has come! As a pp said the OT prophets were to looking forward to Christ and now that he has come there is no need for more prophets.

  • Tell him that all our deceased ancestors are now prophets/prophetesses or angels watching out over us daily. What a marvelous opportunity this could be to share with him both the memories and strengths of family members that have passed on! It could also be used as the foundation upon which to base your religious views!

  • Well, if you want the Jewish answer, "Prophecy can only exist in Israel when the land is inhabited by a majority of world Jewry, a situation which has not existed since 300 BCE. During the time of Ezra, when the majority of Jews refused to move from Babylon to Israel, prophecy ended upon the death of the last prophets ― Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi."
