Prophecy has not ceased!

Please note that traditional opinion that prophecy has ceased after Malachi is absolutely baseless and incorrect.

Torah is ETERNAL law that never changes. This means that prophecy also never disappears. It is just most people ignore prophets and consider them crazy or as messing with them. 

Here is what Torah says:
YLT Dt 18:15 'A prophet out of thy midst, out of thy brethren, like to me, doth Jehovah thy God raise up to thee--unto him ye hearken; 
YLT Dt 18:16 according to all that thou didst ask from Jehovah thy God, in Horeb, in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not add to hear the voice of Jehovah my God, and this great fire let me not see any more, and I die not; 
YLT Dt 18:17 and Jehovah saith unto me, They have done well that they have spoken;
YLT Dt 18:18 a prophet I raise up to them, out of the midst of their brethren, like to thee; and I have given my words in his mouth, and he hath spoken unto them all that which I command him; 
YLT Dt 18:19 and it hath been--the man who doth not hearken unto My words which he doth speak in My name, I require it of him.
YLT Dt 18:20  'Only, the prophet who presumeth to speak a word in My name--that which I have not commanded him to speak--and who speaketh in the name of other gods--even that prophet hath died.
YLT Dt 18:21  'And when thou sayest in thy heart, How do we know the word which Jehovah hath not spoken?-- 
YLT Dt 18:22 that which the prophet speaketh in the name of Jehovah, and the thing is not, and cometh not--it is the word which Jehovah hath not spoken; in presumption hath the prophet spoken it;--thou art not afraid of him.
As you can see, nowhere it says that the prophecy would somehow cease or will be interrupted. Prophets do exist, Prophecy is real, prophets are real and always present in every generation.

Prophet does not necessarily have to do any miracles, but the prophet CAN NOT CONTRADICT WRITTEN TORAH. This is why prophets of Neviim of TNK are, at best, unverifiable.

Prophet test is listed in Deuteronomy 13:1-5:
YLT Dt 13:1 'When there ariseth in your midst a prophet, or a dreamer of a dream, and he hath given unto thee a sign or wonder, 
YLT Dt 13:2 and the sign and the wonder hath come which he hath spoken of unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods (which thou hast not known), and serve them, 
YLT Dt 13:3 thou dost not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or unto that dreamer of the dream, for Jehovah your God is trying you, to know whether ye are loving Jehovah your God with all your heart, and with all your soul; 
YLT Dt 13:4 after Jehovah your God ye walk, and Him ye fear, and His commands ye keep, and to His voice ye hearken, and Him ye serve, and to Him ye cleave.
YLT Dt 13:5  'And that prophet, or that dreamer of the dream, is put to death, for he hath spoken apostasy against Jehovah your God (who is bringing you out of the land of Egypt, and hath ransomed you out of a house of servants), to drive you out of the way in which Jehovah thy God hath commanded thee to walk, and thou hast put away the evil thing from thy midst. 
Please note that Prophets are different from "messengers" (aka Angels, i.e Gen 19:1) which are different and work differently.
