What DOES a Prophet Do Today?

Are there still prophets in 21th century Christianity? If so, what do they do?

1 Corinthians 14:1 gives one of the most-disobeyed commands in the Bible: "
Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy."

We're told to desire the gift of prophecy, but there are problems. There are crackpots out there who claim to be prophets. Prophets suffer persecution. They are regarded as being crazy. And to put it bluntly, hardly anyone obeys this command.

But the New Testament gives a lot of space to describing and explaining prophecy. I'll be posting a few times a week about seeking the gift of prophecy, and I hope that you'll drop in to learn more.
