What should we make of the below quotation from Samuel Rutherford?: These worthy reformers did tie no man to believe their prophecies as scriptures, we are to give faith, to the predictions of Prophets and Apostles, foretelling facts to come, as to the very word of God, they never gave themselves out as organs immediately inspired by the Holy Ghost, as the Prophets doe, and as Paul did Rom. 11. prophesying of the calling of the Jews, and Joh. Revel. 1.10. and through the whole book; yea they never denounced Judgment against those that believe not their predictions, of these particular events and facts as they are such particular events & facts, as the Prophets and Apostles did.
