Prophecy, Gift Or Office?

Q. I have seen on your site it was, I think, where you say Jesus was the last prophet. I just came across Acts 15:32, that says “Judas and Silas, who themselves were prophets, said much to encourage and strengthen the brothers.” Can you please explain this? I don’t understand. If our Lord was the last prophet, how could these two be prophets? Thank you for doing the wonderful and encouraging work that you do. God bless.

A. Having the gift of prophecy like Judas and Silas did, is different from holding the official Office of Prophet like Jesus does. Many believers have had the gift of prophecy and have used it just like Judas and Silas did, to encourage and strengthen the brothers. (1 Cor. 12:7-11)

But it was through the Office of Prophet the God revealed His plan for man, and with the arrival of Jesus, God’s plan was complete. Since then no more revelation is necessary.
