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
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.
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. .
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
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.

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

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? .
And B/A every bit is self inflicted! Let the spin and excuses fly!
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
Financial Working Group" re-punishes Iran on charges of "financing terrorism" The blacklist of the commission includes North Korea and Iran February 21, 2020 The Financial Action Group said on Friday that Iran will remain on its blacklist, concerned with controlling the movement of funds and banking transactions across the world, and called on member states to impose sanctions on the country. The group reimposed all sanctions on Iran, considering that it had not taken the expected measures against money laundering and terrorist financing. "In view of the failure to implement the Palermo Convention against Transnational Organized Crime in accordance with our standards," the commission said in a statement at the conclusion of a meeting in Paris, "the commission decided to" cancel the suspension of all sanctions and calls on member states to implement them effectively. " Gavi, the government body created in 1989 and which includes ministers of member states, temporarily suspended sanctions in 2016 to give Iran time to comply with international standards. The blacklist of the authority includes North Korea and Iran. In conjunction with the hardening of President Donald Trump's administration towards Iran, the panel sent several warnings to Tehran before deciding last summer to abolish a first sentence and keep two comments suspended until autumn. The group gave Iran a February deadline to approve anti-terrorism legislation or remain on the blacklist. Although the Iranian parliament passed the legislation, a supreme religious body voted against it. American acclaim The United States praised the group's call for urgent effective countermeasures to protect the international financial system from terrorist financing threats emanating from Iran. Washington has called for the regime to face consequences for its continued failure to comply with international standards, particularly its failure to ratify the Palermo and terrorist financing agreements. Blacklisting could complicate Iranian plans to avoid US sanctions by engaging with European countries instead. France, Britain and Germany have announced that they will continue to deal with Iran as long as the country removed itself from the blacklist. LINK
Ways to encourage citizens to deposit their money in banks Friday, February 21, 2020 Baghdad / Al-Sabah Experts and specialists in the Iraqi financial and banking affairs see the need to encourage citizens to deposit their money in Iraqi banks to contribute to promoting economic development in the country, stressing the importance of taking administrative measures to ensure the rights of depositors and tightening control over the work of local banks. The banking expert, Abdulaziz Hassoun, said in a statement to "Al-Sabah": The banking system in Iraq is operating under a turbulent environment and then was not able to carry out its natural tasks, indicating that the financial issue is usually related to security, social and economic conditions, and these are all troubled in Iraq, as well On the absence of governmental economic approaches. He added, that spending to spend financial returns on import only is a great reason for the delay and deterioration of banking work, pointing out that most banks are currently carrying out tasks and businesses that are not affected by banking work. He explained, that banks usually do not work in banking and do not deal in foreign currencies by buying and selling currencies, indicating that the nature of the work of banks attracts deposits and invests them in a safe manner and achieves returns and growth and this is not available in the Iraqi banking environment, because all banks are busy dealing in foreign currency, i.e. buying and selling hard currencies. . He stressed the need for the central bank to take measures that secure the citizen’s rights and tighten control over the banks ’work, and that the bank not be a spectator in front of the lawlessness of some banks that do not give citizens their rights. He pointed out that the development of the banking system needs administrative procedures and tightening the control of the central bank because it is the primary responsible for the work of banks and it is those who granted them investment licenses, and it does not need legal legislation because laws exist. He continued: There should be programs that encourage citizens to deposit their money in banks to contribute to achieving economic development in the country. In turn, the financial expert Mohsen Abdul Jalil stressed that the failure of the Iraqi banking system is a major reason for the reluctance of foreign companies to invest in Iraq. Abdul Jalil said in a statement to "Al-Sabah": that there must be development programs for the Iraqi banking system to keep pace with developments in international banks to be an attractive factor for foreign companies to Iraq. He added, encouraging citizens to deposit their money in banks instead of accumulating them in homes and investing them in development projects that generate significant profits for the bank, for the citizens and for the country in general, calling for the restoration of citizen confidence in Iraqi banks by launching incentive programs to motivate him to deposit his money.
