Prophecy Today: A Further Word from God?
- Jim Thompson
It is now over one hundred years since the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles, California, and with that the beginning of the Pentecostal movement. Some sixty years later we have the beginning of the Charismatic Movement as churches in the mainline denominations started to adopt aspects of Pentecostal theology and practice. Since these beginnings the subject of prophecy has been catapulted high up the agenda for evangelicals. What is the nature of prophecy? How can the true be distinguished from the false? What is the relation between the prophecy of the old and new testaments? And especially, should we expect that the prophetic gift that was given to the New Testament churches is still to be experienced by the churches of today?
