It is not at all uncommon for cessationists to report stories like this (in some cases sheepishly!). For to be clear, what is described here is eXactly what we charismatics call prophecy, and in case you were wondering most of the sound ones would certainly agree that whatever this is it sure doesn’t have the authority of how God spoke to Isaiah.
Now I hope you can see that if our argument hence boils down to what in some way amounts to a semantics question of what to call this kind of stuff, it’s no wonder we can have respectful fellowship. If only MacArthur saw it this way. I may be wrong, indeed I’d love to be wrong but the cessationist who wrote this may now be under suspicion of being a closet charismatic! Don’t worry we would welcome you with open arms as a brother even if you don’t want to call this prophecy!
Now I have already answered the question whether this kind of thing is revelatory. No, it isn’t. But is it personal? Yes, of course. We therefore need a category for the Spirit’s active interactions with us in the world, one that fully acknowledges His presence while robustly denying that He is inspiring anybody the way He did Isaiah.
