==========================================I just skimmed most of this. But I'm not understanding why God would allegedly tell you something contrary to His Word....such as this "age of this and that". Sounds like dispensationalism to me....which is clearly NOT Scriptural. I'm not going to debate over this, but I ask...was it God you heard from, or something else? We already have the foundation regarding prophets laid for us. The SAME foundation is continued in the Newer Covenant. Maybe I'm touchy about this subject since being stuck in a cult-group who said much of the same things you're currently saying....the Lord told me, the Lord says...I had a dream....I had an awesome dream. I've been there, done that, and don't care to do it again. We were taken advantage of, preyed upon, treated like crap, had FOOD cut off from us and the children...including our own food, mind you, because we were wicked, horrible people who wouldn't bow down to the "leader" and his "prophet" and do what he said, no matter WHAT he said. Darn tootin' when someone says the same types of things....it makes my skin crawl and makes me want to RUN and never return. Darn tootin' I would ask for PROOF of someone's proclamation of a certain gift, any of the gifts. I can give many witnesses for my own gifts...discernment, mercy, encouragement. So should you, David. There's an old Yiddish word for it... bülshit.
Just an observation. I have never met a believer who did not believe that one of their gifts was discernment.
