Paul speaks at length to the Corinthians about the penchant for becoming a celebrity preacher fan club:
[1Co 1:10-12 NLT] (10) I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose. (11) For some members of Chloe's household have told me about your quarrels, my dear brothers and sisters. (12) Some of you are saying, "I am a follower of Paul." Others are saying, "I follow Apollos," or "I follow Peter," or "I follow only Christ."
He also finds the need to give them guidance on giving and receiving prophecy:
[1Co 14:3-5 NLT] (3) But one who prophesies strengthens others, encourages them, and comforts them. (4) A person who speaks in tongues is strengthened personally, but one who speaks a word of prophecy strengthens the entire church. (5) I wish you could all speak in tongues, but even more I wish you could all prophesy. For prophecy is greater than speaking in tongues, unless someone interprets what you are saying so that the whole church will be strengthened.
As I was reading some pseudepigraphia (prophecies written in the name of a historical personage by someone else aka "a forgery" of a sort) I began to wonder (and this is my question)...
Can we tell from the text whether the prophecies being discussed are to be understood as ecstatic prophetic utterances where, without preparation, by immediate inspiration they blurt out a sentence or two about how the Lord is about to do a great work so be encouraged, etc. OR, would the saints (or perhaps just the celebrities) come to the meeting with a written prophecy, perhaps from their favorite celebrity or in the style of some of the pseudepigraphia we see extant, and read it out loud?
