An obvious place to look is Wayne Grudem, /The Gift of Prophecy in the
New Testament and Today/, Eastbourne UK: Kingsway; and Westchester, IL:
Crossway, 1988, pp 227-252.
ISTM the clew is in verse 9, EK MEROUS GAR GINWSKOMEN KAI EK MEROUS
PROPFHTEUOMEN. A solution to the Cessationist debate is apparently not
achievable until He that is Perfect has come. Not Y2K, but J2C! 8-)
Clearly there have been peaks and troughs in the incidence of miraculous
events: e.g. at the times of the Exodus, the Prophetic Revolt, the coming of
Jesus Christ, and the establishment of his church. We can expect an increase
in such activity leading up to his Return. IMHO.
