From another forum:
The Didache pre-dates Revelation and is unequivocal about the deceiver appearing as the Lord and deceiving many.. It also has good instruction on how to deal with the mass betrayal we have little insight about.
First, The Didache may or may not pre-date anything, but it does not trump anything in the Bible. Note that this includes any writing by the earliest Christian leaders.
Second, it is more dangerous to question modern-day prophecies from the Lord.
Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
Jeremiah 23:28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the Lord.
Ezekiel 33:33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.
Zechariah 13, a passage that dispensationalists use to support the idea, might even be a prophecy against the blasphemous Scofield bald-faced lie that says nobody can prophecy anymore:
Zechariah 13:3 And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the Lord: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.
John 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
Through Joel and Amos both God tells us that our young men shall dream dreams and our old men shall see visions “in the last days”.
First Corinthians 14: 1 tells us to “desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye prophesy.”
26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.
One reason for prophecy is given in verse 25, to convict “one that believeth not” that “cometh in” to meetings. In verse 31, we find another reason, “that all may learn, and all may be comforted”.
Now those who are the inheritors of the false Scofield doctrines have said to me that these verses are “not for us”. This part of the Bible for these, that one for those, this one for us, James and Matthew for the Jews, blah blah. They can tie themselves up in knots trying to make things fit.
For example, Scofield and Darby and the like tell you that the “dispensation” of grace was a “new” revelation, announced by Paul. They didn’t understand that this was talking about Paul more than the mutability of God’s plan for salvation. God made clothing for even Adam and Eve to replace their works of fig leaves, to show that his mercy is absolutely necessary for reconciliation.
We all realize this internally and intuitively. That’s why to this day those “fig leaves” are used to illustrate how hopeless it is to cover up our sin with our own works. It takes God forgiving us.
The prophets told Israel that their sacrifices were a stench in his nostrils, they were an abomination, because they had not circumcised their hearts. But Abraham’s circumcision was accepted because it was a manifestation of faith in God’s grace and blessing.
