According to the Bible there were many people who qualified as prophets in the old days. It happened lots and was very well documented. Many Bible scholars say the time of the prophets is over.|
But what exactly is a prophet and how would we recognize one in the modern world? The Bible gives a clue when it tells us the way to recognize false prophets is that they make predictions that don't come true. That implies that a true prophet makes predictions that DO come true.
Is anyone doing that today? Certainly not some prominent religious leaders since many of them have made predictions that haven't come true.
But there actually are people who make predictions that come true constantly. They come up with findings and new products that many people consider miraculous and they've been doing it for many, many years now.
We call them "scientists". IMO God may well be inspiring them and giving them the power to improve the world as proof of his existence.
If that's true then the task for a person in the modern world who wants to know the creator would be to try to keep themselves as well-informed of the findings of science as possible. That's what I believe, and I'm trying as best I can to hold true to it.
