    I have started a new YouTube webcast show called Digging in the Word in English and in Indonesian.

    The first English series of teachings I have uploaded is called Recognizing True Prophecy. It deals with issues like the following:

    1. Signs as an evidence of true prophecy.
    2. Is it a sin to prophesy falsely in the name of the Lord?
    3. Can someone who has prophesied falsely ever prophesy the truth?
    4. If someone prophesies from the Spirit, does that mean he is necessarily holy?
    5. Can prophecies be directional?
    6. Do prophecies have to be confirmation.
    7. Discerning and judging prophecies in the context of a church meeting.
    8. Deciding what to do with personal prophecies.

    The show is available at:

    Feel free to watch it and refer anyone you believe would profit from it to watch.

    Feel free to comment on the teachings here.


    God bless you

    Good points Link.

    Remember that in the Bible there is no "4 Gospels" book of "Acts" etc rather the NT writers called it "Scripture" and as you point out "the Law and the prophets". As you pointed out Agabus is an example of a NT prophet that writes no scripture at all.

    But the messages are straight from God and for that reason the message a prophet claims to have come from God - must be infallible, if it turns out to be error then the one making the claim is makea false claim.

    in Christ,

    Bob

    All the Bible was written for us.

    Not all the Bible was written to us. In fact, the Apostle Paul, was charged with delivering the mystery, hidden in the Father, to mankind, (us today) with no respect of nationalities, or persons. Contrast that with old Testament and the 4 gospels, and most of the Acts, where Israel is preeminent.

    Paul was writing TO specific churches not us -- so ignore Paul as being for Christians today?

    Acts was written to Theophilus not us - so Acts not intended for Christians today?

    John was writing to the church in general as well - so Revelation is ok?

    Luke was written TO Theophilus -- so no reading the Gospel of Luke as if it was intended for us?

    In 1Cor 10 Paul says that the writings of the OT WERE INTENDED for us to read and learn the lessons they teach-- are we agreed on that point?
