"And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers.." a prophet is an individual who has been contacted by the divine, and allowed to speak for them. I definitely believe that God has, is and in the future will call people to all of these vocations including prophet's.
No true prophets, not yet no. - "For false Christ?s and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect." Mark 13:22 - "For false Christ?s and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect." Matthew 24:24 - "]Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep?s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves." Matthew 7:15 - "Her prophets plastered them with untempered mortar, seeing false visions, and divining lies for them, saying, ?Thus says the Lord GOD,? when the LORD had not spoken." Ezekiel 22:28 - "And the LORD said to me, ?The prophets prophesy lies in My name. I have not sent them, commanded them, nor spoken to them; they prophesy to you a false vision, divination, a worthless thing, and the deceit of their heart." Jeremiah 14:14 - "The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule by their own power; And My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?" Jeremiah 5:31 - Even many Christians will believe and follow and be decieved by the myriad of false prophets that will come and are already here. I dont believe true prophets will come until much closer to the end.
The gift of prophet seems to have been a temporary gift given by the Christ for the laying of the foundation of the church. Prophets were foundational to the church (Ephesians 2:20). The prophet proclaimed a message from the Lord to the early believers. Sometimes a prophet's message was revelatory (new revelation and truth from God) and sometimes a prophet's message was predictive (see Acts 11:28 and 21:10). The early Christians did not have the complete Bible. Some early Christians did not have access to any of the books of the New Testament. The New Testament prophets "filled the gap" by proclaiming God's message to the people who would not have access to it otherwise. The last book of the New Testament (Revelation) was not completed until late in the first century. So, the Lord sent prophets to proclaimed God's Word to His people.http://www.gotquestions.org/prophets-today.html
