Last night I came across this video by Dr. James White speaking about modern day prophets and apostles. He made some interesting points which I thought are worthy of serious consideration.
- Apostles and prophets form the foundation of the church with Christ being the chief corner stone.
- If we are re-instituting Apostles and prophets are we building another foundation?
- Are the new apostles and prophets bringing us new authoritative revelation? Then is the canon of scripture being expanded?
- Those who claim to be apostles and prophets ought to be tested Rev.2:2.
- Anyone claiming apostolic authority should be consistent with the Bible in lifestyle, beliefs, holiness, obedience, dedication to the preaching of the gospel.
- The Bible no where tells us to look forward for new apostles and prophets.
- It tells us to expect false teachers.
- God has already given us all we need for life and godliness 11Peter 1:3. The word of God is sufficient.
- Running after new revelation is dangerous.
