1 Corinthians 14:24-26

"But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all:
And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth.
How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying."
1 Corinthians 14:24-26

This reminds me of Numbers, where Moses said "would God that all the Lord’s people were prophets."  Later in this same chapter, it says "For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted."  I like this theme.  Yes, there might be only one official prophet that is the official mouthpiece of God for the entire world, but because of the spirit, we can *all* be prophets in smaller ways.  And, even, we *should* do this, to help other people come unto Christ.  When we come together (I'm thinking in church, but not that it has to be confined to that), we all have something to offer, since the Lord speaks to each of us, not just one. :)  Some of us will have studied different things, and have different things to share, but we all have something to contribute to the discussion, and we are all living testimonies to God's revelation.  Today, let's work on being close enough to God that we can know revelation when it comes. :)
