I'm not sure. But I do know that a prophet of the time is important. To people as well as to the plan. To people because times change. Language changes. Problems change. If all we were to do is go off of what the [name your religious book] says, we'd be a tad in the dark because there are many passages that do not refer to us personaly. Generalizations do, but if you're Christian for example, the entire law of Moses (not saying many parts don't) should not apply to you because the savior came and fulfilled the law of Moses and gave man a higher law (i.e. The law of Moses states "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth." Whereas Christ says we should turn the other cheek.)

Times change. Generally, ways we cope with it are handled the same (concerning commandments). But God knows that we are not going through the same stuff the Isrealites were going through. For example, in my religion, it is highly stressed today that we be careful with the media. Excessively violent images, pornogrphy, etc. will only bring us down and canker our souls. I doubt God ever had a prophet say that to the Isrealites.
