It's always been so. They threw Jeremiah into the pit. Religious leaders have always been guilty of killing the Prophets. They still are.
28Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
29Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
30And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
31Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
Silencing the Prophetic is an antichrist spirit.
Here's the bad news. Any church, any institution, any organization any government that does silence the prophetic will suffer the consequences. They will suffer defeat, they will decline, they will stop.
The Prophetic is essential to prosper. The opposite is to languish.
You don't have to hear the prophet, you don't have to accept what he says. Ahab didn't, Jezebel tried to kill the prophet.
Ahab said, "Why are you here you troubler of Israel". Prophets are trouble because they cause people to come into line with God's plan rather than their own. Control is always the Jezebel spirit.
Prophets may not win any popularity contests. But they are essential.
