God speaks only to prophets because they have abandoned all ways of their old lives, they have practically abandoned this world, all in the name of God. they forsake their families and friends just for God. they forsake food and shelter to accomplish God's mission. in other words, utter and total submission to God's will. does anyone do that now a days? maybe yes and maybe not. but one thing is for sure, it is veeeery rare thing to know a prophet. so it is something that is not for everyone. plus, He did speak to everyone at one point, but no one wanted to talk back to Him because they were too scared to talk to Him directly to begin with, so man instead wanted for a man to intercede for us. how can one tell if one is a prophet? your heart would burn and you would get a lump in your throat. yeah, sounds weird, i know, but what can you do?If God had something to say, why not say it to everyone instead of just to one person, a "prophet"? How are we supposed to tell one human claiming to speak for God from another?
