Prophets and Apostles have been fundamental in bringing the word of God to His people. I list some prophets below that I like, trust, and follow. If you think Prophets and Apostles only lived in the days of Jesus, you are wrong! There are many thousands of them on the earth today. An apostle is someone who goes out on behalf of God preaching His “good word” the Gospel. The twelve men Jesus had with Him were Apostles and there have been countless Apostles since – they are just not as famous. In these last days there are many Apostles that have been anointed by God to preach His word; I have listed some of them below. This is by no means an extensive or exclusive list…they are just the ones I like and trust. You have Apostles in your neighbourhood…they may just not have their own Youtube channel!
A Prophet is someone who speaks God’s current word to people. In the old days (before Jesus) God spoke to only a few people such as Moses, Jeremiah, Samuel etc. The Prophet then spoke to the people and told them what God was thinking. Since the Lord Jesus came and became the Life-Giving Spirit, anyone can now prophesy if they know God, have received the Holy Spirit and genuinely hear His voice.
“And when Paul laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied.” (Acts 19:6)
Below are some I like and trust…again, there are many more! You don’t have to have a huge ministry to be a prophet…or credentials from a theological school…you just have to be able to hear the word of God and speak it to others.
Many people are both Apostles and Prophets so I don’t want to do separate lists here. Please note, that not everyone is always in accord on all the messages. God is unfailing but humans, as you know, are prone to error. For example, there is debate about the timing of the rapture. The Bible says no-one knows the time or hour…but God gives us clues…and sometimes people disagree on the clues! But if the foundations of faith are in accord, the small details …well…we just have to wait and see what God does! So when you listen to people who are prophesying, or say they have heard from God, always check it in your spirit, check it with scripture etc. Don’t believe everything everyone says. But don’t disregard current messages either. God is DEFINITELY pouring out His Spirit and word on this earth today like never before. As He promises in Joel 2:28-29
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams,
your young men will see visions.
29 Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days.
Here are some people I follow because I believe they are deeply connected to the Lord. Check out even one of these people and listen to a lot of their messages. They all offer something slightly different. You will be blessed and enriched! In alphabetical order…

Still Small Voice (Claire Dubois)
Urgent Words from Lord Jesus (Wendi Grossman)
JD Faraq: Mid East Prophecy Update – this guy is really good. He is an Egyptian Christian pastoring a church in Hawaii. He updates world events weekly in a calm, measured manner. He’s really just giving you a Christian perspective on the news.
Perry Stone: An evangelical preacher…he speaks on many topics especially re end times prophecy. Many many of his videos are worth watching.
Steve Cioccolanti: Really great, scientific, Christian speaker. I trust him to speak the truth in a clear way. Listen to a lot of his videos and you will learn much!
Neville Johnson: A very fine minister of God’s word. One who knows the Lord deeply and has walked with Him for a long time.
Claire and Ezekiel DuBois: This couple has been in ministry for 30 years and run a local mission in New Mexico. The Lord has tasked them to prepare the “Bride of Christ”. (That is, making all His believers ready for His coming). All their messages have to do with helping us to draw closer to God. They have an incredibly intimate walk with the lord with very personal conversation which you may find odd…but once you get used to it it is beautiful. The lord posts a message through them almost daily at www.heartdwellers.org
Wendi Grossman: Post two messages daily from the Father God. Very inspiring, very real. She almost always posts a transcript under the videos so if you don’t have time to listen you can read.
Kat Kerr: Has known the Lord since she was 4 years old. 15 years ago God asked her to reveal Heaven to the world. She has been there many times in spirit and reveals what it is like. God is taking the fear out of dying – Heaven is beautiful, real, and so close by!
In this video she talks about the new move God is bringing on this earth. While all these “end days” things are going to happen, the people of God are being equipped to walk in heavenly authority to usurp the power of darkness. This is a really great message. She talks about a renewing of the earth…this WILL happen during the next milenium.
David Wilkerson: Evangelist. This prophecy was made in 1973. It is well worth listening to as much of what God showed this minister (who was in disbelief this could happen!) has already happened. It may help you understand where we stand in the process.
