There are people who are prophets but not hearing from God but other sources.

To be a prophet means you are capable of hearing and seeing what people don’t normally see and hear but it does not mean all is from God. You are like a satellite dish, it’s capable of receiving signal but the signal might not be from the correct source.Jeremiah 2:8 The priests did not ask, ‘Where is the LORD?’ Those who taught my word ignored me, the rulers turned against me, and the prophets spoke in the name of Baal, wasting their time on worthless idols.

Desire spiritual eyes

Numbers 22:31 Then the LORD opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the Angel of the LORD standing in the way with His drawn sword in His hand; and he bowed his head and fell flat on his face.

The difference between you and a prophet is that, the Prophet has a third eye which sees things that exist only in the spirit real but can have an impact upon our lives. 2 Kings 6:17 And Elisha prayed, and said, “LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
It’s not that the Angel and the army was not there, they needed the third eye to reveal what was already there.

Jesus used prophets and prophetic ministry, He will continue to do so because He is the same forever.

Ephesians 4:11-16 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, [12] for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, [13] till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; [14] that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, [15] but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ- [16] from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

The ministry of Jesus has been built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets yet some don’t believe in their works. Ephesians 2:20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone
