  5. Acts 2:16-18 New International Version (NIV) 16 No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 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. 18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. Acts 2:16-18 Mounce Reverse-Interlinear New Testament (MOUNCE) 16 Butalla thishoutos iseimi whatho was spokenlegō of throughdia theho prophetprophētēs JoelIōēl: 17 ‘Andkai it will beeimi inen theho lasteschatos dayshēmera,’ declareslegō ·ho Godtheos, ‘that I will pourekcheō out ·ho myegō Spiritpneuma onepi allpas fleshsarx, andkai yourhymeis sonshyios andkai yourhymeis daughtersthugatēr will prophesyprophēteuō, ·ho ·ho andkai ·ho yourhymeis youngneaniskos men will seehoraō visionshorasis, andkai ·ho yourhymeis oldpresbyteros men will dreamenypniazomai dreamsenypnion. 18 Evenkai onepi ·ho myegō male servants andkai onepi ·ho myegō femaledoulē servants inen ·ho thoseekeinos dayshēmera I will pourekcheō out ·ho myegō Spiritpneuma, andkai they will prophesyprophēteuō. προφητεύω (prophēteuō) Strong: G4395 GK: G4736 to exercise the function of a προφήτης; to prophesy, to foretell the future, Mt. 11:13; to divine, Mt. 26:68; Mk. 14:65; Lk. 22:64; to prophesy, to set forth matter of divine teaching by special faculty, 1 Cor. 13:9; 14:1 1 Corinthians 14:22-29 New International Version (NIV) 22 Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers but for unbelievers; prophecy, however, is not for unbelievers but for believers. 23 So if the whole church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and inquirers or unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are out of your mind? 24 But if an unbeliever or an inquirer comes in while everyone is prophesying, they are convicted of sin and are brought under judgment by all, 25 as the secrets of their hearts are laid bare. So they will fall down and worship God, exclaiming, “God is really among you!” Good Order in Worship 26 What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up. 27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, two—or at the most three—should speak, one at a time, and someone must interpret. 28 If there is no interpreter, the speaker should keep quiet in the church and speak to himself and to God. 29 Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said. Acts 19:5-7 New International Version (NIV) 5 On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues[a] and prophesied. 7 There were about twelve men in all. Footnotes: Acts 19:6 Or other languages Acts 21:9-11 New International Version (NIV) 9 He had four unmarried daughters who prophesied. 10 After we had been there a number of days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. 11 Coming over to us, he took Paul’s belt, tied his own hands and feet with it and said, “The Holy Spirit says, ‘In this way the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem will bind the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.’” The Holy Spirit does give specific knowledge about the future events regarding a specific individual. Happened in Acts. Happens now? Yes. I had an experience where I gave a very specific word of knowledge to the daughter of an assistant pastor of a church I was attending without being asked and it happened spontaneously. I thought I was nuts because it was way off my mental model of anything related to the young lady. Later on, however, I found the words I was speaking was specific to the situation I had no knowledge of. I had another experience where I was worshipping at a Bible Study with other believers and a lady spoke out in a brief word of tongues. I was hesitant to speak because I knew what she said. I didn't interpret and really regret it. Later on, another lady said, "Somebody here knew what she said." It was simply, " The LORD is here among you." The intent of the worship was just to worship prior to the Bible Study. Nothing more. My opinion is worshipping by a life surrendered to HIM is mission critical. Tongues and/or prophesy is not to be sought. The LORD speaks to us directly by HIS living word and really must be obeyed. Prophesy, however, may occur in times of specific direction needed or a direct revelation from The LORD specific to an individual in service to HIM. So, prayer may be necessary for specific revelation about a matter with the willingness to inquiry of HIM and accept prophesy. Hebrews 1:1-4 New International Version (NIV) God’s Final Word: His Son 1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.
  6. Today
  7. Btw..prophecy in the church should be alive and well as long as it is proclaiming the actual word of God found in the Bible. Any thing added to Gods word is coming from false prophets
  8. Mark, I'm saying that prophecy in the beginning was to tell Gods people of things to come. Also to let Israel know what God expected of them and the promise of salvation thru a Messiah to come. Prophecy was to reveal what was to come. Altho all prophecy has not been fulfilled it has been made known. It has now been brought to us by the word of Jesus Christ. He has given us all revelation. There is nothing else to add to His return, the end of time, His sacrifice and atonement for our sin. It has all been written. It has all been revealed in His word. There is no new prophecy to be revealed about what is to come. God has given us all He wants us to have and all that is necessary for salvation. Things that He has not shared are things that are of His own to know. The book of Revelation tells us clearly that there is to be nothing added to the contents of Gods word. The revelation we have in the Bible is all that God intended for us to have. Christs death and resurrection was enough there is no new revelation. Therefore we must question prophetic words coming from modern day man when they bring new revelation not found in the Bible.

  10. Both those countries borders leak worse then ours. If it’s there already stopping flights won’t help. Both will have it everywhere regardless.
  11. If you are saying from this article that you do not believe that Prophesy is stil active in the Church, I will have to disagree with your premise. I have witnessed otherwise. .
  12. TinBadge, thanks for sharing. “The Uprising anticipates economic reforms that create new jobs, use oil revenues for investment in productive sectors of the economy, across the country and substantially reduces the size of government employment, of which the pay roll easily absorbs over 50 percent of the national budget” It is imperative to invest in productive sectors and diversify the economy to develop the private sector, industrial sector and agricultural sector. Go diversification of the economy Go development Go economic growth
  13. I must agree that there is a miss understanding of the purpose of prophecy and Gods way of speaking to His people in the OT. God promised to speak to his people under the old covenant thru His true prophets, who were identifiable throught their fidelity to the covenant and their ability to do signs and wonders (Deut 13:1-5 ; 18:15-22. Despite the great privilege it was to hear from prophets the fact that only select individuals would have the spirit of prophecy was not ideal. All of the old covenant/OT prophets looked forward to a better day when all the people of God would have the fullness of the Holy Spirit writings of Gods word on their hearts which would then render the need of prophets as obsolete. we find this to be so when we see Moses rebuke Joshua for not rejoicing over the manifestation of the prophetic gifts in the elders of Israel. (NUM. 11:16-30). Moses understood that the day was coming when the church/us would no longer need individuals to mediate to the "new revelation" from our Creator. Later prophets like Joel foresaw day when ALL BELIEVERS, from the lowliest servant to the most exalted rulers would receive the Word of God and speak it to one another with understanding. (Joel 2:28-32. God has always known that unity between Himself and His people could never be realized as long as a prophetic figure stood between the Lord and His people. But the good news is that this unity was achieved when God Himself became incarnate and expressed His solidarity with His people by walking among them. Following the ministry of Jesus came the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on every believer in the fulfillment of Joel's prophecy (Acts 2) We now stand in line of prophets with a far greater understanding of the Lords place and purpose. Some believers are more gifted in the area of teaching than others but there is no longer any need for a prophetic mediator between God and the true believers. As believers, in a sense, we are Gods prophets in the new covenant as we speak and spread Gods word and His gospels. But this does not involve NEW REVELATION of any kind. GOD HAS SPOKEN FULLY AND FINALLY IN HIS SON.(Hebrews 1:1-4). There are views in many churches today that say God is giving new revelation through prophets who can mix in some error as they misunderstand His word. These views are to be rejected. God has spoken fully and completely thru Christ, therefore there is no need for extra or more revelation. Instead of standing in line with prophets, we are to proclaim the canonical revelation that God has already reveal thru His word Jesus Christ. If that's not enough for our salvation and belief then we will never believe in the one and only true God and the work on the cross that His precious Son provided. What else do we need to Know? Hebrews 1:1-2 1 "In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times in various ways. 2 but in these last days He has spoken to us bu His Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he also made the universe (NIV) The Bible is clear that there is no new revelation.
  14.

I debated even posting it, but every once in a while he actually posts something useful - so, I decided to add my comment to the post to show what I really thought about it. He's one of those I usually totally avoid, because they're pushing the special groups and phone numbers; and often intimate it is RVing often at ridiculous rates. Have a great weekend...! RON

  20. If not already, God is going to take it personally for using the name supreme leader. This Iranian bunch will get a clue one of these days.
  21. I think there is a misunderstanding on the purpose of prophecy. There is more than one purpose. I am speaking for the purpose of edification. 1 Corinthians 14:1-5 (NASB) 14 Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. 2 For one who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries. 3 But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation. 4 One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself; but one who prophesies edifies the church. 5 Now I wish that you all spoke in tongues, but even more that you would prophesy; and greater is one who prophesies than one who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may receive edifying. In my Church we are encouraged to prophesy. We even set time apart for this purpose. I have seen and heard many stories on prophesy in my Church and elsewhere that were spot on accurate to my knowledge. The person giving the prophesy had no knowledge of what the person was going through, but I knew, and I heard what they were telling the person receiving prophesy, and they were accruately telling the person what they were going through and what God wanted them to know. I have seen someone give a prophetic word to someone else, and then another person who wasn't even in the room, comes in sits down, and gives the exact same word to the person. God can give us instruction through the Prophet, but it is up to us to follow that instruction, otherwise, why should we expect what was prophesied to come to pass if we don't follow the instruction? .

  23. A Somewhat Misleading Arabish Translated Headline ! The government of Muhammad Allawi enters the market for buying and selling ministerial positions - 7 Hours Ago BAGHDAD - As Iraqi protests against corruption and party-power continue, the judiciary is investigating allegations that parties have paid huge sums for "buying and selling" ministries and positions in the upcoming government. These allegations highlight the wide gap between political leaders and the demands of citizens in the oil-rich country ranked 16th on the list of the most corrupt countries in the world. Politicians reported similar deals during the formation of previous governments, but the "bazaar" is back on the front today as the street awaits the birth of an independent government as pledged by Prime Minister-designate Mohamed Allawi, in response to the demands of the demonstrations in which about 550 people were killed. For the first time, the judiciary announced that it was investigating Iraqi politicians over the allegations that accompanied the birth of the previous four governments since the fall of Saddam Hussein's regime in 2003. Investigations began following a tweet by political analyst Ibrahim al-Sumaida’i, who is close to the prime minister-designate, in which he said that $ 30 million was offered to him in order to book a ministry “for a specific entity.” And Al-Sumaidaie is not the only one who mentioned that. Deputy Kazem Al-Sayyadi, who belongs to the rule of law led by former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, published a tweet in this regard in which he said that the ministries of Iraq "for sale." He wrote, "The Ministry of Oil at 10 billion (about 8.4 million dollars), who buys?" The judiciary has investigated al-Sumaida ، and is seeking to lift the immunity of the fisherman with the aim of investigating him with the allegations he mentioned. The Adel Abdul Mahdi government had resigned over the impact of the demonstrations that, since its inception on the first of last October, were calling for change in a country that lost in 17 years about 450 billion dollars due to rampant corruption, according to Parliament, an average of 25 billion dollars annually. Allawi assures that his government will be completely independent, but political forces still covet the hegemony over positions that bring in money as part of a legacy they have been accustomed to since the regime change in 2003. According to political analyst Hisham al-Hashemi, politicians are using the same tactics to control positions despite popular moves. He explained that "the brokers of these files are of two categories," the firstconsisting of deputies and figures close to politicians known to be corrupt, who would transfer the "CV to the team close to the official in exchange for amounts agreed upon between the covetous position and the broker." As for the second category, they are “leaders of some (parliamentary) blocs, and they are known to sell ministries in one of two ways, either once for a lump sum, or sell them in four batches, i.e. a payment for each year in the ministry.” This complicates negotiations on the formation of the Allawi government, as the minister or party that paid huge sums for his assumption of a portfolio at the end of 2018 for a period of four years, will not easily welcome his exit from the government after only one year. While some parties fear that they will lose their funding sources and the commercial contracts that they finance themselves, one of the leaders of these parties seeks to persuade the Prime Minister-designate to keep one of the ministries within his share. A party official told the party that "the party leader has told the prime minister (the designate) that he has financial obligations in the ministry at the moment and cannot be abandoned during this period and asked him to appoint a person close to him." From this standpoint, a high-ranking government official said that the issue of assigning independent ministers at this stage is "just a lie and cannot be acted upon amid partisan rivalry" over ministerial quotas. "The parties may accept independent ministers, but after that they will gather around the minister and tell him that this ministry is our share and you have to abide by the orders we dictate to him," he said. The political parties ’influence is not confined to the position of minister alone, but rather exceeds that of all the ministry’s resources, especially by controlling other important positions such as the deputy minister and the general director of the ministry, which are the locations through which most of the financial facilities pass. Last December, MP Mahmoud Mulla Talal requested that the Minister of Industry, Saleh al-Jubouri, be interrogated with files relating to corruption in his ministry, accusing him of awarding contracts to a subsidiary of him. But the day before the interrogation session, the same deputy, who is the head of the Parliament's Legal Committee, was arrested on charges of taking a bribe to withdraw from the interrogation, in an "ambush" sources that the minister had arranged for him. He was sentenced to six years' imprisonment. An official in the government integrity commission charged with pursuing corruption confirmed that most political parties holding power "have economic committees that are tasked with obtaining commercial contracts for their subsidiaries." He added that each party minister "has a group of companies that get the major contracts, which usually do not perform the service work and have no experience in the field of construction," but they "prevent the authorized companies to compete with them." After 17 years of successive governments, Iraq, which floats on seas of oil, still lacks basic services such as electricity and clean water, in parallel to a near collapse in the health and education systems. Allawi pledged in his first speech after the commissioning to work to inventory the economic committees of the political factions as part of his government program, which was considered by observers as a major challenge difficult to achieve. "There are political and commercial powers trying to implement into ministries through financial deals," said an Iraqi politician, who declined to be named. The Arabs LINK
