- Yes, yes, good reasons many for ignoring prepper-warnings, not the least of which, Scripture: thank you's are due!
Yet we must not ignore opposing Scriptures—Scriptures must indeed be fleshed out fully. Prophets in the Christian meeting must present themselves two, or three, for this reason: Prophets, you say? But did you not know that of our Roman Catholic Church, connected to every catholicrite in the world, Peter's to Thomas's established by every Apostle from India to Ethiopia, from America to Armenia, Rome, to the islands of the sea? Every congregation follows the Apostles' Rule, first laid down in Scripture, and, thus, such meetings are hard to find, yet preserved for us in the Latin Portuguese Rite, called Mozarabic. Yes, the category Prophetias adheres to our liturgy there. Forward this to your friends inside nonCatholic meetings which are mistrustful, still, of Roman Catholic rites for this reason, and play it safe, not seeing the original Scriptures in action—for in action they continue to be, nonetheless little-used.
Again, every Prophet must appear in two's or three's, for this Reason: that the Scriptures may be presented complete.
Is it enough that we space out our Prophetias two or three throughout a year, making the purpose more general? Certainly, Priests edify the churches—thereby technically fulfilling the prophetic rôles, while those of Mark 9 who prophesy in full Holy Ghost power, on the outskirts, perhaps, may not Recognize them as walking in the true Anointing of the Prophet, Saint Apostle John, the Beloved Disciple, discussed! Since we expect two, true, Prophets to witness at the end of the age, ought we not to be on the right side, when they come? That our Prophets may legitimately fast their Presences in the assembly, in a voluble way, does not make them unwelcome, when a home is awaiting them amidst the Portuguese rites, where the Dogma of the Faith will be preserved in Portugal, "etc."?
To add, then, to the discourse—fleshing out fully, or at least two-thirds—note that Joseph was sent to prep those in his day, by stockpiling food, for his family, and others! Our Lord did this. Preparations are wise, when coupled with Faith—certainly Scriptural.
